Hello all, i'm back with my 72(75) days thread. Starting tomorrow their are 75 days intill the release of Into the Wild Green Yonder. Their are 72 episodes plus three movies = 75 of Futurama and to make the time of waiting  hmpf go quicker  smile I will be watching an episode a day (1 movie = 1 episode) and when I finish, the next day ITWGY will be out. As usual I would like for you guys to join in and come here to post your review of the episode and discuss its pros and cons. So starting tomorrow... let episode discussion begin.

I'd join in but I'm already a considerable distance through my own "marathon" of sorts which started after Bender's Game came out.

I decided to spread it over four months as I don't really have time to watch one every single day anymore...but it IS actually making the wait for ITWGY seem pretty smooth. Only seems like yesterday that I watched Space Pilot 3000 and before I know it I'm three quarters of the way through season two.

Watching Mother's Day tomorrow and if all goes to plan I'll finish watching Bender's Game on the 18th February...considering that it'll probably be leaked onto the internet a couple of days before release I decided it was best to have a gap of a few days so I could watch ITWGY asap without interrupting the marathon.

Still...I might as well join in with the episode discussion since the one's I've watched so far are still pretty fresh in my mind.

There's always time for a futurama marathon; just don't sleep!  I'm starting with Space Pilot 3000 this evening though, so that I will be watching Bender's Game the night before ITWGY is released.  Guess I'll be one day ahead of this thread, then.

Might as well get a head start.

It's been so many years since I've seen some of these episodes it's almost like watching new material. Not a bad thing really. Anything that makes the wait for what could be the grand finale more tolerable can only be a good thing...

I also get the feeling that people watching one a day will eventually catch me up anyway so I won't be too far out of the loop.

I forgot ITWGY comes out a day earlier in some places so today should be Space Pilot 3000? But since I started this topic kind of late, we'll just make tomorrow Space Pilot 3000 and The Series has landed discussion

But we already did this...
Anyway, I didn't actually watch the episodes last year, I just commented on them fairly often.  I'll probably do the same thing, and comment in here once in a while.
If I still find something to say.

I know we already did this but that was over a year ago and I, personally, haven't really watched to many of the episodes recently so this is a good way to prepare for ITWGY for me. Also it's ok if you don't watch one everyday but an overall review of each episode is always good.

This is more or less my life philosophy.

I usually watch the episodes in bigger chunks, but one a day from now till release doesn't sound too bad!

Only exams left are accounting (which doesn't matter) and Math (which im good for), I'm finding myself pretty bored. So why not!

It hard to resist the temptation to watch the whole disc.

Having watched SP3000 yesterday I have to say it always strikes me how much the Professor's voice changed over the years. In the first episode his voice is far more frail than it became.

I'm so in for this just like I was last time.

Tricky it's nice to see you back. If you need me too I can help keep this in line with Posting what episode that wer are on for that day when you can't do it like I did last time when we did this for BBS.

I shall watch SP3K and TSHL later on tonight because if I don't do it later I'll end up watching the disc because of the snow day here. So I'll post my reviews.

Also I agree with SoS about the changing of the professors voice.

Yeah, that is what usually happens with cartoons. The voice actors make up a voice and they change it over time to fit the personality of the character as the show progresses, because they reveal more about the personality during the show. smile

There is a big difference though...crazy...

Thanks bendersfan, it's good to be back. One day I went in to off-topic and it kinda sucked me in tongue. Also, I always appreciate help so be my guest if I cannot for some reason.

To the episodes. I compared them to season four episodes and the voices like the professors and the animation and art themselves were very different. Billy West did 4 main character voices over the years and it must be very hard to try and keep them the same.

Overall, Space Pilot 3000 was a good episode, not great for a series opener. It seemed a little rushed to me. The Series has landed, in my opinion, was better since it had a little more emotion (and we were introduced to Amy and Zoidberg). They should have put these two episodes together for an hour long series premiere.

Whilst Space Pilot 3000 wasn't the funniest episode of the season (not even close) I think it did a good job of opening up the series as a whole.

The characteristics of the three main players (particularly Fry) are roughly mapped out and the show's premise is introduced....yet it doesn't feel particularly contrived, at least not to me. A number of pilot episodes tend to go for an overkill approach when it comes to introducing premises and characters but it was rather subtle with Futurama.

The Series has Landed is essentially the second part of Space Pilot 3000 and again, it does a fine job of introducing the Planet Express employees...in fact, the first four episodes of Season One all lay ground work of some description for the rest of the series.

This is kinda random but I took pics from the first and second episode and compared them to BBS. I changed nothing about the pics either.







I don't know what common opinion is but I think Bender was the worst (drawn) at the beginning of the show. He seemed inconsistent and unpuportioned(sp?)

Fry starts off noticeably taller than Leela, some scenes in the movie its she looks about even to him though.

TSHL tonight, god I love that episode!

I have a question, of all the voices, Fry, Bender, Professor, and perhaps Hermes voices are different from their first episodes, but which would you say sounds most different now?
I think I'd say Bender.

Bender seems to have been on a diet since the first episode.

Today is I Roomate

To the voices thing. I remember that the producers said Hermes was not intentionaly Jamaican and that they had to revoice some things. Also that his name was going to be Dexter.

Ive been in a habit of watching them before I go to bed... which usually means 1-3am. Makes for a good way to end the day. Guess that means I'm technically behind, but I guess time zones null it anyway.

Not gonna lie, the first episodes are pretty much perfect. As much as one might convince himself that the movies are good, going back to watch the series from the start pretty much blows them out of the water.

Come on people, this thread can't die already...

I Roomate was one of my favorite season 1 episodes for many reasons like drunken Bender, and self-mutilation.

For Love Labour's, what can I say. How can you not love this episode, in it we meet Zapp, a cartoon legend (for me) and his many pathetic pick-up lines and sexual inuendos(sp?)

Love's Labour's  is arguably the first "classic" episode of Futurama, at least in my opinion. As soon as Zapp Brannigan appears on the screen you find yourself hoping that he's not just going to be a one off character...come to think of it he's a main player in at least three "classics" in Season One alone.

Introduces Nibbler too...though it wasn't until much, much later that his significance to the story was even partly revealed. Some may have noticed his shadow appearing under the desk in the pilot episode but I can't say that I was one of them.

That episode has what is in my opinion on of Kif's best moments.

Kif: The fatso says you're free to go.

Fry: Really? Why?

Kif: (Looks at Leela) "Why" indeed.

Kif seemed to have hated Zapp a lot more in that episode because he really comes out and says it:

Kif: The fatso says you're free to go.

Fry: Really? Why?

Kif: (Looks at Leela) "Why" indeed.


And my other favorite:

Kif: The jackass wants to see you in his quarters.

In the others he just seems to sigh...

hmm, the characters physical appearances changed more than I realized over the course of the show.  They all lost a lot of weight, and Leela looks younger than she did in the pilot.
