Well I read that after 9/11 FOX took out the ship crashing through the bill-board in the opening credits, but put it back in after a couple months, still no clue on the truman and egg crate situation though

P.S. There wasn't any contraversy when Futurama talked about how area 51 was were the fake moon landing was suppose to be filmed, I thought that would be contraversal

The Trmuan busting out o the egg crate is as Kryten said a WTF moment. It's there just to make us go "What the fuck?!"

Well there is a conspiracy therory that we didn't really land on the moon and that it was all faked in like Area 51 or something but it was just a joke in this episode. I'd ask someone much more versed in this stuff than I am. I'm just guessing.

"Roswell That Ends Well" is my favorite episode, full of great dialog.  Like this exchange:

Farnsworth: "Start the ship, Leela. Let's just steal the damn dish, to get back to our own time."

Fry: "But..but, won't that change history?"

Farnsworth: "Oooooh, a lesson in not changing history from Mister "I'm my own Grandpa". Let's get the hell out of here already; screw history!"

Yes! I love that part too seattlejohn01.
"Screw history" has got to be the most intellgent thing the professor has ever said but history is boring and I hate it so that's a little, wait I have no clue where I was going.

I love how Fry accept that he is his own grandfather so quickly. One minute he's freaking out then all of the sudden he doesn't even care. He's even pround in The Why of Fry. Fry can adapt very easily.

I agree, one of the best episodes.

Professor: "Choke on that causality!"

I didn't get that joke until like the fifth time I saw the episode. RWTEW has alot of subtle stuff I love. Like Leela with the salt shaker. A really simple thing that for some reason just strikes me as really believable and well done. I also like how they put effort in to getting the WWII equipment right, like the M26 tank and the P-51B Mustangs. Granted the by that time it would have been P-51Ds but I'm not that picky. This seems as good a time as any to point out that I know way too much about these things.

I like the nonstandard nature of the "Roswell That Ends Well" time travel story. You're wondering and wondering how they're gonna fix their mess... And then... It's 'Screw history'! It's like when I watched 'Titanic' for the first time, and at the end, the big ship sank... I did not see that coming.

Very Futurama.

Godfellas is a good episode. Bender actually learns to be comassionate about something other than himself for a bit. The God entity was cool they did do a great job with him not making him the god of one religion or indeed not knowing if he was even really god. Let the philosphical dicussions commence.

I really want to show this episode to my class and listen to the discussion that follows. My class is like a mix of the really highly opinonated who will argue about anything, especially if it's philosophical or politial. The moderatly opinonated who just kinda sit by and don't care until a personal belief is attacked (AKA: me) we are easily amused by our class. And the not very opinonated the kids who could give a flying fuck about policts or philosphy, they'll discuss stuff but not get as into it as the highly and moderatly opionated people. But too bad the only teacher that  have that would actually show a TV show in class hates Sci-fi even though he loves the Simpsons.

I reckon it would be inherent that God could not know that it was God, as essentially God is the most utterly selfless being in the universe, to be in possession of an identity would render God with the limiting qualities of the human ego.

The episode is excellent, some of my favourite things:

-When Bender tries to give his people light they burn, when he trys to put out the fires he caused he blows them away!

-The mini Nuclear war around Benders body.

Leela in the monastery-Your order may be famous for its martial arts, but I've never met a holy man I couldn't clobber

Fry looking for Bender- I know he was evil, and on more than one occasion he actually stole my blood, but still I wish Bender was back

Eh, the episode was almost pure philosophy. It had three great funny bits, though.

Come back when I've had some sleep, baby!

Hey, I hear your friend Bender is back!

And, of course, Bender's earplugs. And ears.

My favorite detail about today's episode is when Malachi Jr. is hugging Bender meanwhile Bender's eyes follow a nuclear bomb down all the way to the civilization. I watch for that every time.

Yep I love thoes parts too. It's kinda sad that Benders really didn't do anything to stop it but I don't think he really could have done much anyway. Helper is a dick. And as to what Xanfor said about Bender with ears and ear plugs why did he do that? It was funny but weird.

My guess would be that Bender hears through his antenna, you cant plug a antenna so he put ears in so he could plug them, and not hear anything

There's one part of this episode that I keep forgetting about. That picture of Bender holding fry over the edge of the Statue of Liberty. I wonder what Fry did to make Bender mad enough to do that.

 
Quote
Gypsy: Sure I hold sťance, channel your friend, no problem. Insert coin. [Fry inserts 5 cents and the Gypsy moans as she "channels" Bender.] I am your friend, Bonder.
Fry: Bonder? Is it really you?
Gypsy: Yes. I am fine. Give the gypsy $10.
Fry: Wait a minute! Bender's name isn't Bonder, it's Bender. You're a fraud!

I love how long it takes Fry to realize that the Gypsy was saying the wrong name. Hell he even called Bender "Bonder".

 
Quote
Fry: You can't give up hope just because it's hopeless. You gotta hope even more and cover your ears and go "blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah!"

Too true Fry, everything will come true if you believe it.

Leela: "It's no use. We were going full speed when we fired him so he's going even faster than that."
Fry: "You mean we can never catch up to him? Not even if we rub the engine with cheetah blood?"

Classic Fry. I also love the ending even though it is kind of a cheat.

Leela: "This is by a wide margin the least likely thing that has ever happened."

^ I love that Leela quote.

'Godfellas' will always hold a special place for me, since it was the first episode I actually watched, on adult swim in March 2006. I had come across Futurama many times before that, but never realized it was worth watching. Luckily I finally gave it a chance. But this is a great episode regardless.

Helper is not so helpful.  They need to bring that robot back.

This episode is so good.  Even after a few years, it's still relative to today.  Every episode of Futurama can still be relative today and perhap 10 years from now.

^^ Yes they do need to bring Helper back no matter how much of a dick he maybe he's still funny.

Today's episode is: Future Stock. It's ok. I haven't seen this episode in a while but the part where Steve Castle dies... well that's sound effects gone mad.

Actually one second and that was becuase I'm amazing    tongue     big grin. I love Steve's face when he's doing the Saftey Dance thing with his hands. I love how fast the professor moves to get out of there when he hands Steve his escape plan. I don' think he ever moved that fast ever before or again. I also love the slapping sound effect. I hate Fry's slicked back hair. The commercial is really odd.

It is odd, and what's even odder is it's based on real life.  That commercial in "Future Stock" is a riff from an actual commercial back in the early 80's that Apple Computers did (back when they were a young company & were doing creative marketing stuff like sponsoring the US festival); I think it was shown during the Superbowl. 

I saw it when it was first shown, and my immediate reaction was "what was that?"  People talked about it for weeks afterwards, and it got Apple's name out there in a big way.  On of my buddies who went to UCLA Business School told me it was taught there as a textbook example of "indirect marketing".

To me, TKOS and Devil's Hands are the two most depressing eps.  Your milage may vary.

I guess it depends on how you define a depressing episode. I categoize the depressing-ish ones (well sorta). I was going to do a long rant on what I think are the most depressing if anyone want to see it and my reasons for each let me know I'll post.

Steve's death: the most greusome death yet on Futurama it'll be hard to top becuase then they'd ahve to get more sound effects and stuff.

TKOS - depressing because Fry tries so hard to let Leela know he loves her.  Leela cares a lot about Fry but instead of talking to him about it, she talks to -- Zoidberg?  That haunting whistled version of "Sweet Georgia Brown" at the end is just depressing.

Devil's Hands - because it's the last episode and still didn't give us closure about Fry and Leela.

Agreed but I think that the most depressing episode is Jurassic Bark just because the ending. Seymore sat there for 12 years waiting for Fry that always get's me along with the song. I'll talk more about his episode in 8 days.

Wait, who inherited Zoidberg's 10,000 shares? Would it be Fry, who would technically inherit them whenever the owner before him, that guy (Steve Castle) died because he was the vice chairman to him, or would it be the professor, because he later became the the CEO again?

Boring Business Answer - Typically, it depends on the corporation "survival" plan that most major corporations have in place, in case of "irreplaceable employee" death.

Futurama Answer - They would all go to Fry, because he gained all of "that guy's" shares (including Zoidbergs, which he obtained for a sandwich) when he died.  Personally, I think they should revert to Zoidberg, so he could come up with unique & original ways to lose them again...
