Depends on what you view as a spoiler. They do somewhat reveal what will happen in the episodes, and my analysis includes speculation. Others might see those things as spoilers, so I'll just post them in the other thread.

Personally, I don't see why we have two threads. Seems like things get repeated in both threads.

I agree. It seems like the speculation thread and the news thread could really just be one thread in which news is posted and speculated upon, and, if you're really worried about pissing people off who don't want to know anything at all about the new seasons, you could just put the things that are possible spoilers in spoiler tags...

Out of all the announced titles, the one I hate the most is "The Duh vinchi code" What a crappy name for a show that is supposed to have good writing. It sounds like a crappy Simpsons Season 21 episode name. Though the episode might be interesting. I just hope that the new episodes will still maintain the clever, sci-fi, maths, science jokes it has used in the past.

No, a crappy Simpsons Season 21 episode name would be "The D'oh-Vinci Code".

No, it couldn't be a crappy Simpsons season 21 episode name, because season 21 has already finished.

Yeah, that's not the most promising title, but I'm not making any judgments about the episode at this point. It gives me a sort of globe-trotting, "The Honking" vibe, which could definitely be a good thing. But for what it's worth, of all those episodes, I'm most excited for "The Late Philip J. Fry."

The title is not promising, but the plot summary given has some promise. And, given that Hedonism Bot is in that episode, there's even more promise. Well, at least promise of melted chocolate being used to lather bodies. And I agree on The Late Philip J. Fry; it has a distinct sci-fi vibe to it.

whatever...
Do you really not understand the concept of analogy? Willster said it "sounds like" the title of a Season 21 Simpsons episode. As in it's not really the title of one and he (and myself) knew it wasn't an episode title. He was just saying that it seems like the crap they're producing these days.

I was using a clever invention of the Swahili called "humo(u)r". You should read up on it sometime. The Kenyans sure are amazing. I also used a thing called the "imperfect tense," ou l'imparfait si tu es franšais, ce dont je doute car tu ne sais pas ce que une analogie est. The imperfect is a tense used when an action is incomplete, continuous, or coincidental to another action, such as when somebody says the title of a Season 21 Simpsons episode would be "The D'oh-Vinci Code" rather than "The Duh-Vinci Code". It's humo(u)r because it's making jest of the fact that Homer says, "D'oh!" as many Simpsons episode titles do.

Wow, is it time for another round of "Oh no! Futurama's turning into Family Guy" already? Yeah, I'm sure Futurama will totally become all lame and drop its clever, sci-fi, maths, science jokes because you don't like the episode title "The Duh-Vinci Code"

I only just realised that. Damn my noobness. But why Season 21 particularly?

I was using a clever invention of the Swahili called "humo(u)r". You should read up on it sometime.

Don't think I'm so stupid that I don't know what humo*u*r is. I use it often. Just not when I need to.

the title of a Season 21 Simpsons episode would be "The D'oh-Vinci Code" rather than "The Duh-Vinci Code".

I'm surprised they haven't done that one already.

You're slightly mistaken imputing that anecdote to me, weiner - I'd trust IMDB with my life! Why would I deliberately try to hurt it like that? frown

Still - uh, good point, whoever made it, if it was ever made.

Oh, they're making new episodes of Futurama!?!

Heh. Imputed. "Ascribed" would have also been acceptable.


I also used a thing called the "imperfect tense," ou l'imparfait si tu es franšais, ce dont je doute car tu ne sais pas ce que une analogie est.

Shouldn't it actually be "..ne sais pas qu'est-ce c'est une analogie"?
I'm not certain, but I think that's more correct.

At any rate, it should definitely at least be "qu'une", those need to be contracted.   :D

Naw, "ce que" works better. It says the same thing and is much more compact. It could be "que c'est une analogie" but I like how I wrote it.

And, yes, it should've been "qu'une", merci.

Ok, if you say so; yours is more literal, sure, "that which an analogy is"; I just figure one should never end a sentence with "est", that's all.


As for the show, hmmm, I'll probably end up watching it more online, than on TV. Depends though. Think it's a mistake if they go the route of starting to make every episode 'topical'.

If you didn't read the latest update on CGEF, it includes this interesting bit:
Quote
On Monday I'll be interviewing the fantastic Maurice LaMarche, voice of Kif, Morbo, Lrrr and many more.
We'll be having a chat about his work and of course about the upcoming return of our favourite 31st centurians!
The fun part is I'll be mixing in some fan-submitted questions. So, if you want to get involved email me(reed @ gotfuturama.com), ensuring the subject line reads LAMARCHE. In the email include one question and your name as you'd like it to appear if I choose the question.
Go for it! And remember, the more interesting the question, the more likely it will get picked! You can send as many emails as you like!

I'd highly recommend PEELers sending in some questions. Of course not all the questions will get through, but the more put in by us the better! Try to come up with some interesting questions, and give a little shout-out to PEEL while you're at it. Mo has been really connected to the fanbase since the rerebirth so I'm sure this Q&A will be really fun and funny!

I always love when people who are completely uninformed act like they know everything.

Quote from: ign comments
before any of you get excited. they changed all the voice actors for it. the same writer's are no longer attatched and the showrunner from the show's original incarnation told these people to go fuck themselves if this was what theyre gonna do. so I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that this is going to suck more donkey balls than that stripper from my buddy's bachelor party.... very very uncomfortable silence that was.

Classic. laff

One of the IGN UK staff (who was apparently a Futurama fan) said that the movies weren't very good, so he's probably not a proper Futurama fan.

What?  Are you suggesting that a proper Futurama fan is someone uncritical of anything Futurama?  In my mind, that is exactly what makes a proper Futurama fan, someone who does not take the label Futurama as a 100% certainty that this is going to be good.  This fan will always remain sceptical, and this is exactly what the show runners expect of us.

Nice new article, not much new info on the episodes other than:

Quote
The first 12 will air on Comedy Central this summer (serving as a lead-in to "The Daily Show"), with a holiday episode coming at the end of the year. (Fox network could have aired the episodes but passed.)

&
Quote
Cohen wants to see the series continue and believes it might -- even musing about a feature film -- but in the midst of finalizing the writing and recording of the 24th, 25th and 26th new episodes , he knows not to count his chickens.

"We're once again in the position of preparing for our last episode ever," he says.

Why would Fox not want to air the new episodes?

Fox are obsessed with seth macfarlane shows that's why

If I was matt Groening I would say to fox "fine, you don't want futurama than I don't want you to have the simpsons suck it bitches!" with a lil victory dance too. Why does he  just not blackmail them with the simpsons?
