I'm a shipper but I'm not a hard-core shipper. I agree that it will get boring having them go out every single episode. I'd like to have a few shippy episodes but I just don't want the 'ship to be the main focus of the whole series.

I really don't think they'd do that.

Indeed, you'd have to be pretty stupid to even think they would consider doing that.

Apparently, the first episode of the new series is titled 'Rebirth.' If it is actually resetting--I'm going to suspect that their smaller 'writing staff' are just washed-up FOX executives.
Also, I'll riot.

Yeah...Svip already broke that news about a week ago
And don't worry, David X. won't let them reset it...he knows how much it means to the fans

It'd be stupid of anyone to reset something that major when near none of the fans want it reset. I'm all for artistic freedom, but sometimes creators forget that they make the show for other people, not for themselves.

I bet if they show us a sneak preview of the upcoming season, we'll know if the show has been reset or not. But I don't think the show will have a reset, because that would be stupid.

I don't think they'd reset it entirely; there's too much history in the series, and too many dedicated fans like us that would be up in arms.  What they may do is do a quick "bring up to speed" as a kind of reminder of the general "what's happened before" highlights, and then take it forward.  Kinda like what they did at the beginning of "Bender's Big Score".  We'll see...

What's with all the people getting pissed off about the "Rebirth" thing when David X. already said it was more of a "literal" rebirth?

Actually, it isn't. Literal means not figurative or metaphorical. True to fact: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/Literal

That only makes how David X. phrased it more interesting. If he's not using the word incorrectly, then what can we expect?

I'm thinking a possible rebirth of the Universe.
Some kind of re-creation or re-configuration of the universe somehow.


Either due to the wormhole, or as a cause or effect of the wormhole...
or because of something else.

Offhand guess.

i was just wondering, since there is a lower budget for the new upcoming seasons. Will the show be degraded because of this, for example, the animation quality?

Actually, that's a good point. David X. said with the new season that they'd like to return to more character-based stories. Is it possible that this might actually be a condition the writers have set for themselves knowing the lowered budget? As in, since they can't spend so much on CGI (The P.E. ship trips specifically), they want to keep the show on the ground to keep costs low (since the CGI cost more than the drawings).

I don't think we have much to worry about, it's Futurama. If they did do something to piss off the fans (which probably won't happen) they know we'd go into a riot. And the only way to really piss off loyal fans is to bring in Family Guy writers and target an audience of idiots. Futurama's a smart show, the writers are smart, we all know that. The whole "rebirth" is prabobly just some weird si-fi thing, just like most of us suspected.

Because there won't be a decline in quality.
at least from a visual perspective anyway.

I apologize for being unclear.  My question is, why are you pretty sure there won't be a decline in visual quality?  I mean, do you have any actual information about, for example, the new animation budget and how it will affect Rough Draft, or is it just a gut feeling?

Oh no! I hope they won't get rid of Christopher Tyng's ochestrated music! Love the music used in the show (also one reason I love futurama). The movies didn't use the same type of music as in the episodes..and I was sort of disappointed with that. I also love how they use CGI in the show!

Losing the orchestra is a bummer, considering how much great use Tyng got out of it. Still, while the quality is lower, the music itself is still good. Tyng's pieces still carry though even a synthesizer.

Sounds like it might be some confusion concerning Christpher Tyng and "his orchestra".
When the 4 movies were announced it was mentioned that the orchestra was eliminated to cut production costs but Tyng himself was retained. Sounds like someone might be confusing old news for new news. Also, I've never heard the term "his orchestra" before just the generic term orchestra. My guess is that musicians are hired on an as-needed basis depending on the score.

This is how I feel about the subject. Still, it'll be a shame if the production costs continue to prevent the hiring of orchestra musicians, since the orchestrated music really did add to the show's grandeur. But as long as Christopher Tyng is still around, the music quality shouldn't decline.

I was?  confused  Sorry if I gave off the impression that I knew more about this than I actually do, but I honestly don't know if Tyng is coming back for the new season(s).

ETA: But now I do!  Thanks, futz!

Don't know if you guys know this yet or whether it's actually interesting but......there was another table read last Friday for the third?/fourth? new episode and according to Maurice "it kicked ass" and was written by Mike Rowe. 
Just thought I'd share but I didn't know where to put it.....what happened to the news thread anyway?

Do we really expect any of the VA's to say an episode they're making "sucks rocks"?

Still, I have high hopes for the new season - as long as the RESET! button is used very sparingly.

Thanks for saying it for me. I thought people would think I had a vendetta against Maurice (who seems like a very nice guy) if I repeated myself:

About Mike Rowe: The only episode he wrote was the underrated Bend Her. It's been about 8 years since he tackled Futurama (aside from being a supporting writer for the movies) so hopefully he's gotten better.

Yeah, they aren't going to do that, but I would think that if they hated a script they would say something less enthusiastic than "it kicked ass".

He probably wouldn't have mentioned it if that was the case
Anyway, they seem to be doing a table read every two to three weeks at the moment...is that because of the "shorter delivery schedule" that was mentioned somewhere before?
 
I hope it isn't affecting the quality of the show.....

From the Future of Futurama Facebook group (the founder is a "personal friend" of LaMarche):
 
Quote
 One of my concerns going in to the new season was the shortened production schedule and reduced writing staff. Would that negatively impact the quality of the finished product? Only time will tell, but the report I have gotten from the table readings are that these first three offerings are as good as anything that has yet been written--that there are more laughs per page, and that clever plot twists abound.
I don't imagine that the writers turned off their minds just because the show was not renewed, so perhaps they have had this time to incubate the ideas that are now coming to life.

Yeah I know it could just be them trying to get us excited about the new season but I think they really do mean it....they wouldn't want to up our hopes now to dash them expertly later would they?
