The only episode I can think of that could be aired unedited with a G-rating is I, Roommate.

Even that has some (rather gentle) penis-reference jokes though doesn't it?

Yeah, but nothing they couldn't show with a G-rating. Definitely not to the scale of Spanish Fry or Amazon Women in the Mood, that's for sure.

EDIT: I've got the timeslot! It starts on Wednesday, November 30 at 8:00pm. There's just one episode the first week, but the week after that, it's on both Wednesday and Friday, both at 8:00pm. Awesome.  smile

I think any episode with zapp in it would have to be iffy. Almost all of his quotes are sexual

The level of "adult scenes" in Futurama isn't that different from the Simpsons and it has the same timeslot.
PG tv shows are allowed to be aired at most times now anway, except for eg on the ABC in the morning when Sesame Street is on etc...   wink

probably the only difference is the way they releate to sex in futurama compared to simpsons. in the simpsons it is generally reffered to as "snuggling" but in futurama it is right out there

You're forgetting, the only seasons of The Simpsons on at 6:00pm are Seasons 2-9, which were very tame. And even then, the more explicit episodes are edited. Episodes from Seasons 10-13 are also shown, though not many, and the raunchier episodes from those seasons (eg. Jaws Wired Shut, Half-Decent Proposal) are always skipped. As I said, PG shows can not be aired until 7:00pm, unless they're on during weekends.

Futurama is filled with sex, and it often involves strange creatures or some more explicit gag to it. Just look at how much sex is in Season 2 - you've got the decapodians in Why Must I Be A Crustacean in Love, Fry and Amy in Put Your Head on my Shoulders, Leela and Alcazar in A Bicyclops Built for Two, Fry and Morgan in How Hermes Requisitioned his Groove Back, Fry and Umbriel in The Deep South, Farnsworth and Mom in Mother's Day and Fry and Leela in Anthology of Interest I. Not to mention all the ball jokes in War is the H-Word, the stoned humour in The Problem With Popplers, and pretty much all of Zapp's lines in Brannigan Begin Again. None of that stuff would make it in a G timeslot.

Besides, we already know Futurama's on at 8:00pm with a PG rating now anyway, I don't see why we're still discussing this. Either way, I'm right.  tongue

It IS on 2 times a week, as I've posted several times now. Starting next week, it's on both Wednesdays and Fridays.

ShaBuBu - go to GotFuturama.com and check out the Episode Guide. At the top, you'll see Seasons 1-5. That's Broadcast order. At the bottom, you'll see 1ACV, 2ACV, 3ACV and 4ACV (ACV is Futurama's episode code asigned by fox, the numbers before represent the season). Those are Production order.

It doesn't really make much difference, except the show was designed to be seen in Production order (hence why the DVDs go in that order). Airing the episodes out of order also resulted in some brief Dwight appearances before his official introduction in The Route of All Evil (aired in Broadcast Season 5, intended for Production Season 3) - and 3 Bender episodes in a row at the end of Broadcast Season 5. In short, Production is better. Fox screw everything up by airing it out of order. And Futurama's not the only show they've done it with, either...   no no

Knowing how much Channel 10 suck, it'll probably be just for summer, and they won't play it in order. Hey, they frequently play The Simpsons in a retarded order, constantly holding episodes over for months for NO god damn reason. I doubt it'll be any different for Futurama...

Asimov - Yes. Aside from the occassional double-episode, it's very rare in America for more than one new episode of a show to air in one week. They don't schedule their shows the same they do here.

ShaBuBu - Check YourTv. They're playing The Series Has Landed on Wednesday and I, Roommate on Friday. Love's Labour's Lost in Space airs the Wendesday the following week. The TV Guides just printed the wrong descriptions - they ARE airing in order (we just won't know if it's Broadcast order or Production order until Season 2).

However, when the episodes aired on Channel 7, the series premiered with a double-episode: Space Pilot 3000 and I, Roommate. That's right, it did originally air out of order here, most likely because I, Roommate doesn't have a cold opening so it was easier to air them as one episode, cutting the credits from Space Pilot 3000 and the intro from I, Roommate. They never cared about the continuity in the order, and didn't show The Series Has Landed until after Love's Labour's Lost in Space, if I recall. Luckily, when most channels air double-episodes now, they keep the credits and intros in and air them as two seperate episodes rather than one whole one.

What? We don't know that yet. Like I said, they seem to be playing them in order so far - The Series Has Landed IS airing on Wednesday, "I, Roommate" was just an incorrect listing in the TV Guides (I assume they think we're an episode ahead since the show was originally going to air on both Wednesdays and Fridays, but only aired Wednesday on the first week - probably a late schedule change).

That's why i said i wanted it on more than once a week, because in the first week it was only on once, also this week i have only seen ads for it on wednesday and no other time

It's the same with The Simpsons, too. If they have an episode on Wednesday and Friday, they don't advertise the Friday one until the Wednesday one has aired so as not to confuse viewers.

Although they have been showing ads for this Wednesday's episodes that feature several clips from I, Roommate... Still, I'm confident that The Series Has Landed will be showing. Advertising episodes with the wrong clips is sadly a pretty common thing for Ten to do...

Whats wrong with Adelaide?
 Just because our greatest landmarks are some statues protesting the landfill that went ahead anyway.

If you ask me its the snooty Syndey-ans out there... They think they are so good because all the Americans know is Syndey and Mel-Booourrrrrne or however they say it, btw Americans, you are sayin it wrong.

Theres nothing wrong with Adelaide, except the traffic, idiot people that come up to Adelaide Hills (Other than name there is no relation to Adelaide) as tourists and the ones that stay (stay away from Hanndorf on Sunday arvos), and the fact that the air smells, and I have to go there if I want to buy something other than something from a $2 store.

Bact to topic why is it that I've only seens ads for the Wednesday nights for Futurama?

I am glad they played the right episode and also that there have not been any scenes deleted yet (as far as I can tell).
But channel 10 has become as bad as Fox, they put advertising everywhere these days! They usually dont do it when there is something at the end that is funny but this time they did. *cough* bastards *cough*

you can't say perth is the asshole. have you ever flown over adeladie? it's probably the bleakest city in the universe. all the house have red roofs, plus the tallest building in the skyline is about 20 stories high. the whole city reeks of boring. as for melbourne, what have they got..the MCG *barf* cricket blows.

now that i think of it perth hasen't go that much either, exepct me and beamer.


on a side note they did play the series has landed tonight, looking as if they will go in chronological order, at least for a little while anyway.
