You know what they should have on the DVD?
An audio track with nothing but David Cohen's temp voices.

FACEBOOK NEWS:

Maurice LaMarche's Status: "is going to have a Lrrr-iffic day! Today's Futurama script is all about Lrrr and Ndnd, with generous doses of Morbo, HGB (the three of whom sound nothing alike), Kif, The Scary Door Announcer, Veector, and a surprise head in a jar. I'm gonna be a busy boy... and, I'm gonna have fun!"

All in one episode?  Hot damn.  That sounds pretty good.  Though, we still have little idea which episode it is.  As they have skipped through some statuses here and there, and there are a total of 13 episodes.

Good to see more Scary Door returning.

It's probably not one of the first 6 episodes, since the last one mentioned by Maurice was the sixth one. It'll probably be somewhere in the 7-10 range.

I'd definitely love to see what the Omicronians (specifically the King and Queen) are up to. Earth is definitely panging for some Omicronian invasion.

I know they are referred to as King and Queen on the commentary, but I always thought Emperor and Empress was more appropriate.

Kings and Queens does not strike me as a militaristic power loose on the trigger.  Monarchs usually just fought silly skirmish wars.

"Maurice LaMarche and his amazing castmates, Billy West, John DiMaggio, Katey Sagal, Tress MacNeille, Phil LaMarr, Dave Herman, and Lauren Tom, are going to table read (aloud) the 100th episode of Futurama this morning! I know I'm pretty darn excited about it."

100th episode would make it the twelfth episode of the 6th production season, which means they are one away from the last episode of their first broadcast season on Comedy Central (since they are splitting production season 6 (26 episodes) into two broadcast seasons). I wonder if they have anything special planned for the 13th episode, considering it'll be the "end" of the "season" till 2011.

I don't mind if they do something for the 100th episode. It's a milestone, the point when a series reaches syndicated validity. However, I hope they don't get all cliffhangery on the last episode of Season 6... 7... 5... Season CC1. I hope they just do a good episode for that one, like they did in every other season. Other than Cryonic Woman. Maybe that's why Fox mixed up the orders...

Wouldn't that be kind-of anticlimatic though? If they do something special for the 100th episode, which would be the second to last episode of the first Comedy Central Broadcast season, it would leave us feeling spent for the actual last episode of the season. We won't be getting the second half of the season till 2011 (and the writers know that), so why not go out with a bang to get us excited while we wait for the second half?

Maybe the 100th episode will have a cliffhanger that is resolved in the season finale. Honestly, I'm with i_c: I don't want the season to go out with a bang, per se; I want some fairly satisfying conclusion. I mean, ItWGY had a fantastic cliffhanger...but all the unanswered questions are making the wait for new episodes really freaking hard. Give me something more on-par with, say, "The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings"--sweet and somewhat conclusive, but with a little something to keep you interested in the new season.

What, besides something like a cliffhanger or the start of a two-part episode or something, would this "special" something be, though? I suppose they could acknowledge the momentous occasion in the opening caption, but I can't see (or don't really want to see) the episode itself being too self-referencing (the opening of BBS was really pushing it as far as that goes). They could also acknowledge it by having the word "hundred" in the title, kind of like "Space Pilot 3000" did with "pilot" (of course, the episode would then have to involve a hundred of something at some point).

Gorky, I have overstated what I meant. I do not want a two-parter. Futurama does well enough with sequel episodes that two-parters aren't really necessary (the only one that should exist is ITWGY to Rebirth (hopefully I won't change my tune when the episode premiers). I did mean something like The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings. That's the kind of episode I want to see be season finale's from now on.

Tedward, I also don't see the "real" importance of the number 100. Having 100 episodes does get Futurama syndication, but that is more cause of celebration for network execs than fans. The opening of BBS was painfully bad and I'd rather not see a repeat. The fact is that the episode won't be last of the season, so there is little reason to devote any extra time to essentially wank off to the fact that the show hit 100. If they are saving something "special", it should be for the season finale.

I like Tedward's idea of an opening caption to somehow commemorate the show reaching 100 episodes; to me, that's acknowledgement enough. Maybe Maurice LaMarche is attaching such significance to the table read for the 100th episode because who would have thought that this little sci-fi cartoon, cancelled almost seven years ago and brought back to life twice, would ever make it that far? It could have nothing to do with any special content contained within the episode itself.

Just to clarify, no one ever said that anything special was being done for the 100th episode (6ACV12). Maurice mentioned that he was going to the table read, I realized that that meant that being the 100th episode made it the 12th episode of S6 and the second to last of the first Comedy Central Broadcast Season and wondered if they would do anything special for the 13th, and i_c_weiner mentioned that he wouldn't mind if they did do something special for the 100th episode. Not one of us stated that something special was being done for the 100th episode.

That said, the caption seems likely and is enough.

From the hub-bub across the Facebooks about this (Mo writing some things, John posting somethings), I'm guessing there's something special to the 100th episode like, say, the 300th Simpsons episode. The sort of thing like they promised with Bender's Big Score or the last seen of Green Yonder where a lot of old favorites are seen, but more likely something like 300 Big Boys where it's an ensemble episode. I would really like to see another ensemble episode like 300 BB.


But there's never been anything special for any of the season finales before now. Why should it be different? Devil's Hands and Green Yonder were series finales, not season finales. Season 6/7/CC1's finale or Episode 101 or 6ACV13 or whatever you call it shouldn't be any different from the other season finales: not overtly significant.

Let's look at previous broadcast season finales:
Hell Is Other Robots
Anthology of Interest I
I Dated A Robot
Where No Fan Has Gone Before
The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings

The only one that has any real storyline significance on the scale that you suggest is Devil's Hands, which was also the original series finale. When you expand this to production seasons, Slurm Factory, Cryonic Woman, and 30% Iron Chef aren't exactly cliffhangingly significant. In conclusion: stay the course.

For me, the show has grown past the point where a light ending is truly suitable for the end of the season. It was okay back in S1 and S2 when the show was still finding what it wanted to do and how far it could develop its world and characters, but it has now attained a special status. It's been pined for by a dedicated fanbase that stuck with it after its cancellation and brought it back. As I see it, its only a bit natural that the show live up to that special status. This isn't merely a little show anymore that is just something fun to tune into every week. It's become a prized treasure, something that's truly cared about.

When I said I wanted the season finale's to go out with a bang, I was misunderstood. I don't mean every season finale should be a two-parter or an episode that changes the very foundation of the show. What I meant was that I would like season finale's to be more like Godfellas or Leela's Homeworld over episodes like Fry and The Slurm Factory or The 30% Iron Chef (nothing against those episodes). I want the seasons to end with episodes with a bit more meat, that are more satisfying to chew on while we await the next delicious course.

I certainly hope so.

Fistful, I understand what you mean, and I suppose that it's another part of the hopes we have about the new seasons continuing to surpass the previous ones in overall quality and greatness and such. I agree with i_c_weiner and Jezzem in that since the season finales so far weren't necessarily more spectacular than normal, there shouldn't be too much of a difference for consistency's sake, but on the other hand I do hope for at least a bit more than what we've gotten before, as you seem to as well.

I would really like to see another ensemble episode like 300 BB.

Same here.

If by ensemble episodes you guys mean episodes that involve the entire crew, I completely agree. Episodes that involve the entire crew usually get extra points from me and I'd love to have more of them.

300 Big Boys is the kind of episode I'm talking about. Everybody had their own plotline of what they were doing with the money. Fry with the coffee, Bender stealing a cigar, Leela with the whale, Zoidberg wanting one art, Hermes trying to get Dwight to think he was cool, Amy and Kif's adventure, and the Professor trying to look young. Even Zapp and Nixon were there! Everybody had a nice little plot that all weaved through each other. Much like 22 Short Films About Springfield. So many secondary characters that got nice plot lines. Fry and Leela were pushed to secondary characters this episode (or everybody was a main character, however you like to see it), much like the Simpsons family were in 22 Short Films. Everybody gets a little something. That's something I'd like to see.
