Damn, we've been lost of that news thread for a while, eh?  Perhaps no news to report? Ooo!

Well, I don't really have something that is news news regarding the coming season and such, but I do like mindless praising.  Or well, praising, especially when it is not mindless, such as the Guardian article:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/tv-and-radio/2009/sep/25/futurama-your-next-box-set

Quote
Ignorance is the only excuse for not loving Futurama. If you're familiar with Matt Groening's animated sitcom, and it still leaves you cold, you clearly have no sense of humour.

Damn straight, Phil Daoust.

Can I be ignorant but also like Futurama?

I agree with one of the comments to the article, the guy shouldn't have decribed Leela that way when nobody knew that until season 4. It'd ruin that episode slightly on the off chance somebody hadn't seen it.  no no

It's certainly possible for one to do so, judging from the large number of examples on this very website.

I recalling reading reviews on Bender's Big Score back in the good year 2007, where I would commonly - if not all the time - see Leela described as a mutant.  However, I assume it is fair, given how it was a review (so it would have spoilers) and it was a review of a film set after season 4.

But every time you try to obtain some information about Leela on the Internet these days, she will 90% of the time be labelled as a mutant rather than an alien.

Hell, I am not even using the spoiler tag here, because I assume all of you guys know.  If not; tough luck! and get watching "Leela's Homeworld".

Of course it is worth mentioning that she thought she was an alien and so did anyone else, but I have to say, it was not the biggest twist of the series.

Damn.  Now there is bad news out of Fox:

http://www.bscreview.com/2009/09/fox-makes-script-commitment-to-sky-jockeys/

They have approved of a new animated show, so now it is going to be hard fit Futurama into Fox's animation line up.

Sky Jockeys sounds like another "sit down, shut up" or whatever.

well, we're still no worse off than we would have been had "Sit Down, Shut Up" survived.  This new show will just fill the  hole that SDSU collapsed into.  And that's assuming that this new show survives.  I mean, a sitcom about airline employees the quagmire show?  Please.

I thought it sounded more like a spin-off with the jockey elves from The Simpsons...

Can The Cleveland Show Last? - I certainly hope not.

The article tries to argue that some cartoons prevailed despite rocky starts, but others failed (an example he uses here is Futurama (but we all know the truth, eh)).

I assume he made this article to prove some kind of point, that this new spinoff may not be lasting for as long as you might feared.

Thats cool. I wouldn't have thought Futurama was something that the Guardian would've noticed, seeing as it's pretty much below the radar here.

My guess is, Futurama's new episodes will come on Comedy Central.   Let's face it, it's better off on CC than on FOX.   Maybe Sky Jockeys will just be another Sit Down, Shut Up, and it will only last 5 episodes.   That website looks hopeful about Futurama coming back on FOX, anyway.

Wow, I feel embarrassed for letting this news escape me entirely.  But TFP has it:

http://slurmed.com/?p=news&date=2009/09/30_01

Apparently, there will be a sneak preview of the first episode of season 6 (6ACV01) this weekend.  So keep your space pants on, guys.

Bummer that I can't be there.

All of the male cast members are slated to be there, but no Katey, Tress or Lauren.

That's a shame - I'm sure they would be as popular, if not more popular, than the male cast members.

And they're going to have a Pinky and the Brain reunion...

Damn, I wish I could be there for that sneak-peak. Are any PEELers going? I'm jonesin' so bad for some new Futurama that I could potentially overdose on even a bland play-by-play description of the footage.

As much as i want to see new Futurama,  I'd rather not see a sneak peak. I would want the first episode to be fresh and new. I wouldn't want to have seen part of it already, mostly because from this weekend untill 10 or so months from now I would be wondering how the episode would end and it would keep me up at night. lol BUT thats just me.

according to this, the new footage will consist of the first few minutes of the first new episode's animatic.

Thanks for the link, sO. I'm confident that, at the very least, someone on the internet will either a.) leak the footage via some cruddy, low-quality recording that I will nevertheless watch repeatedly or b.) provide a written summary of those first few minutes. At any rate, I'm feeling all fangirly about this; I mean, this time next year, we'll have a new season. It's pretty cool...or at least dorky-cool.

I'm unsure I even want to watch this footage. What happened to the crew after the wormhole is going to be the big draw of the first episode's story. I'm not sure I want to ruin the surprise so many months ahead of time.

At the same time, I'm not sure I have a choice. There's every chance that many of you will watch the footage, and I'll have a hard time avoiding spoilers. Given the option of being spoiled by the footage or by an accidental read of someone else describing the footage, I'd rather see the footage.

Man, I wish this footage wasn't going to be shown. I can wait 10 months, but it'll be harder to wait 10 months with knowledge of what's to come (or with being careful to not see spoilers).

If I've learned anything, it's that you should always just watch the previews and sneak peaks, there is no use in waiting because you'll just see the finished thing eventually.

I agree with Fistful that seeing the first few minutes could ruin the surprise (especially if we do find out during those minutes what happens with the wormhole), but if anything seeing the footage will probably just make it more exciting when the episode is finally aired. After all, it's not like it's the finished animation yet, so there shouldn't be much harm in watching it and if DXC wants it to be shown, then we may as well see it.

If the footage leaks there's no way I won't watch it, I'm useless at resisting, it's futile. I hope it does leak, I'm curious about it for sure...
