I really like futurama, I've seen every episode and movie, so I decided I needed a new and exciting futurama adventure. My roommate suggested we smoke pot during one of the movies, and I decided that would be a good plan. So I got together with a few friends and we started up Bener's Big Score. This wasn't a very good choice, and after 15 minutes we were all very confused, and getting headaches from trying to figure out the storyline. So we put in Beast with a Billion Backs, and it was GLORIOUS! It was fun, easy to follow, and immersive. I thought I was traveling to space with them. Once they went to the tentacle's heaven-like universe I was basically euphoric. If you haven't smoked up and watched it, I highly reccomed it.

Welcome.

That's some strong stuff you had if you were getting confused 4 minutes before they even discovered the time code.

Also, I think this is Off-Topic talk perhaps.

Haha, that was an estimate. We admitted we were confused right wehn Bender started time traveling. We couldn't quite remember how Planet Express had been taken over, someone insisted it was because of spam, and we were like "WHAT?" and he was like "when they went to the beach..." and we were just like "Why did they go to the beach again?" and I was like "...my head hurts." So we agreed that 'billion backs' would be easier on the mind, and it was.

Welcome PEELer.

That's kinda what I said and I wasn't high.

BTW, when you say "Highly Recommend", you mean Recommended to watch whilst high.

I was high and reasonably drunk when I first watched BBS. I still got the gist of it, though.

Then again, my mind is a pool brimming with possibilities cascading over into waterfalls of creative alternatives (under certain influences that is)

I was drunk the first time I saw Bender's Big Score, I understood it for the most part. Saw it a couple more times relatively sober, watched it completely stoned quite recently and it makes a little more sense every time. I LOVE that movie when high. The time travel stuff with Fry and Bender in 2000 becomes such an awesome mind-fuck. Haven't seen The Beast With a Billion Backs on any drug yet but it HAS to be better than it is sober. That movie suuuucked.

I've always kind of assumed it was a twist on the token black African-American character in an otherwise white (err, European-American?) sit-com. Either that or its a nod to Star Trek with its Asian character. (Not to mention its African-American, Russian, and Scottish ones. Did I miss anyone?)

In any case I don't think there's any deep and meaningful reason. It may have been as simple as picking the character design that they liked best out of the ones available at the time.

Apparently Hermes was originally going to be called Dexter and be British. But they decided being Jamaican was funnier (especially considering his role in the show) and they changed his name because Dexter and Bender were too similar. So they named him after a typewriter (the Hermes Rocket) instead.

Statistically one of the crew was bound to be Chinese.

And I have to agree with Dr Bender and Mr West. Hot!

@SUbstance: all I can say is that certain chemicals make great things even greater, and Futurama is already the most greatest. (Have not yet watched the movies in said state, but will someday soon and will mostly likely love them all the more)
Re: Amy- after so many years it is difficult to imagine her as anything but Asian; I thought it was funny that they made her blond-ditzy minus the blond, and the occasional Cantonese cursing etc. was a great little joke too. Zapp fills the blond role just fine  big grin

Two things here, first, Amy isn't Asian she's Martian. Second pot is not as bad as alcohol.

She's Martian by birth, Asian by heritage. Also, drinking alcohol isn't as bad as breathing smoke. For your health, that is. Breathing smoke will always do a bit of harm no matter how little is inhaled, yet alcohol has distinct proven heath benefits in the right quantities.

Riiiiiight... So you, what, just absorb your body's daily requirement of fluids through your skin? Or do you eat, like, three watermelons each day?

Wish I could not drink haha. Never watched futurama "stoned" or plan to. Respect to you Bianca! Alcohol worse than pot? Hmm. I suppose alcohol makes (some) people do stupid things e.g. fight... *sigh*. Pot can lead to harder drugs though surely? (Sometimes)

Osmosis is tough; I can soak in beer all day and not feel a thing. Oral or intravenous application is all that works for me. Also I eat 3 watermelons a day that was really funny Hobbitboy xD
I think this discussion is certainly turning offtopic, but interesting nonetheless...
@ Bianca...how old are you that you don't plan to drink ever? Just curious. I didn't have a drink until I was 20 (which is considered late even though the legal age is 21  roll eyes ). Alcohol is not inherently bad, it is how people abuse it that makes it bad (like guns xD). Actually it is quite delicious...

I love how people like to make these comparisons of drugs, so I'm throwing my 2 cents in.

Guns are definitely worse than alcohol.

I wanted to watch Futurama but SUb_D got high.
Take a break from real life's drama but then he got high.
Now they've cancelled the show and I know why.
'Cause he got high, 'cause he got high, 'cause he got high.

Futurama is hilarious and weird without certain things. Everything else gets hilarious and weird with the addition of certain organic neurochemicals... laff

Gee whiz, I don't think that anyone implied that you must take drugs in life.  I wouldn't reccomend it at all.  The point is, for me, that we all take a vacation from reality even if it only involves endorphins.  Xanfor, for the record one does not need to "smoke" pot to use it.  As a lung diseasae patient I generally just bake a few cookies or brownies.  I get the benefit without ingesting smoke.  Bianca, please do not take this as a general endorsement for taking harmful drugs.  Besides as my old hero Dr. Hunter S. Thompson once said "People shouldn't start taking drugs, there aren't enough around for those of us who already do"  smile
