As well as I've said before about there should be an audio track of just David Cohen's temp voice, they also should have a laugh track, track for a selected episode,
which consists of random people plus John Dimaggio as "that one guy".
I would definitely buy that.

For an added bonus you could get Ken Keeler to temp all the singing parts, especially Leela's.

Heya. Long-time reader, first-time poster. Just had an idea, thought I'd throw it out there.

What if the whole rebirth of the crew thing was a concept similar to what happened to Spock in Star Trek 2/3? Have all the people that were wiped out reborn in some ill-defined fashion on some planet where life grows at an accelerated rate, and Fry and the Professor have to return everyone's thoughts and memories back to their new bodies somehow. A "Genesis planet"-like story could also flow into the second episode with the whole Zapp/Leela Adam/Eve thing, and could make for some great parody gags("Phillip, can I ask you a question?" "Bender, don't call me Phillip. You used to call me 'Fry.' Or sometimes 'Meatbag.' Don't you remember 'Meatbag?'")

That's quite an interesting idea. The Adam and Eve idea for the Eden planet Zapp-Leela story we're supposed to get for the second episode is similar to what I'd definitely be hoping for, and if you have been reading this thread for a while you'd know that we've been considering the nature of this "rebirth" quite a bit. Your idea does seem possible, especially since, if they are going to be carrying things over from ITWGY, it is now supposed to be the "Green Age" and, while that accelerated-evolution planetoid is gone, it could very well be that an accelerated life sort of place would be involved (although I'm fairly skeptical about them bothering to continue with the "Green Age" concept into the new episodes, as I am about other potential retcons)...or maybe even, if we do see a rebirth so literal it involves baby versions of the crew, then we might be seeing another trip to the Fountain of Aging!

Thanks for sparking my (and hopefully our) imaginations about this, and also, welcome to PEEL!

I can see 'Nibbler:  Congratulations, Dr. Wong' (indicating that perhaps one of the Wongs become a Doctor or Zoidberg finally gets to be Amy's sister or there is a relative of the Wongs that is a doctor or some such).

The entire block of text is rather unpleasant, though the bold letters (second word in the block of text) seems to be 'pope', which would make sense as they revealed on Comic-Con that they would include more plots related to the Space Pope, AND he would make an actual appearance this time.

Here's all I have right now:


[....]

[...], including Nibbler on Leela's lap.

Fry/Zoidberg/Hermes [or Bender]/Leela/Bender [or Hermes]/Leo/Inez/Kif/Nibbler

[CHEERS(?)]

Nibbler

Congratulations, Dr. Wong [?]

[...] bottle of champagne, starts to [...] in to [...] when [...] and tosses it away. Bender's [?] [...] Nibbler purring Leela's lap like a kitten. [...] once again, she pets him. [...] and goes to sleep.

I think the first two sentences say "Kif pops open a bottle of champagne, starts to raise it to his lips, then reconsiders and tosses it away. Bender's arm shoots up and catches it, and he begins chugging it."

Further work on your block:

Would make sense.  Combining the work would generate this:

Bender's arm shoots up and catches it, and he begins chugging it.  XXX to Nibbler pawing Leela's lap like a kitten.  Looking astonished? once again, she pets him, zombie-like.  Nibbler ???? once and goes to sleep.

Somehow, it sounds like Amy got her Doctorate's in Engineering (after being an intern for Planet Express for +10 years)...

If it is so, that's quite a nice move on the crew's part. I really haven't heard anybody question the length of Amy's internship and Planet Express recently, so for the writing staff to fill this unnoticed hole up deserves applause.

I played around with the image a bit and I think this is what that paragraph says:

Nibbler: Congratulations, Dr. Wong!

Kif pops open a bottle of champagne, starts to raise it to his lips, then reconsiders and tosses it away.  Bender's arm shoots up and catches it, and he begins chugging it.  (Cut)? to Nibbler pawing Leela's lap like a kitten.  Looking hypnotized once again, she pets him, zombie-like.  Nibbler (?)les once and goes to sleep.

Eh, it's not uncommon for Ph.D. students in the US to be stuck in their graduate programs for 6+ years (and in Amy's case, this would be on top of however many years of undergrad she had to finish at the start of the series).  It is quite amazing or horrifying that she pulled this off after starting out as a straight-C student though, assuming that that's what happened.

I would recommend to delete the name of the person in those images, just in case he could get into trouble.. who knows.. because perhaps he didn't notice that his facebook photos are public..

Even if the album wasn't public, he should still be quite aware that what he was doing might have consequences in such a case.  In other words; I am quite certain Mike Rowe knows what is going on, and he is well aware of what he can and cannot share with the public.

Just because an album isn't public, doesn't it mean that no one will reveal it regardless.  As soon as you share it with people outside of the 'inner circle', it's pretty much out in the open, and I am sure Mike Rowe knows that.  Besides; the damage is most certainly done.

I would say that "Bend on a Wire" and "The Silence of the Clamps" are the same episode, just that the former is the original name for it. Note that Maurice emphasized that this episode was Clamps heavy, and that the latter title appears on a script.

And has anybody been able to figure out what the third framegrab from the "Bend on a Wire" pictures is from? The first two's original episodes are obvious (Bender's Big Score and Bender Gets Made) but the third is perplexing me. Looks like the asteroid worm from Star Wars. What episode was that parodied in?

Um if it was supposed to be a giant worm, then it may be ITWGY due to the fact that they used a large worm as a train on mars (between the station and the destruction of old Mars Vegas.

It looks like a worm, but I could be wrong. It could be the Mars Dune worm, but the pictures looks too dark to be Mars. However, it would make sense given the episode's supposed title starts with an "M".

Yes, I was not sure about that.. But that means that in the previous episode (6acv13) Eric Rogers is the director then.. roll eyes and in episode 6acv14 is the writer. I don't know how the order of names work in that array of episodes.

I can see that Ray Claffey has a director profile according to IMDb and Eric Rogers has a writer profile.

That last page appears to have something to do with constructing permutations out of transpositions (basically, if you have the integers 1 through N written in some random order, you can restore them to ascending order by repeatedly swapping adjacent numbers).

Eric Rogers is an interesting choice to write an episode. He only did an AoI segment before and has a lot of comic credits, albeit in the early run of the comics (majority coming before #20, nothing after #34). Claffey is also an interesting choice to get two director credits.

The credit on 6ACV15 is Dan Vebber, writer of The Birdbot of Ice-catraz, The Route of All Evil, Love and Rocket, and Obsoletely Fabulous. Not exactly my (or anybody else's, for that matter) favorite episodes, and not exactly the best.

Overall, interesting choices. If these episodes (14 and 15) make up the beginning of Broadcast Season 8, I'm surprised they aren't using heavy-hitters in both writing and directing. Where's Eric Kaplan, Patric Verrone, and Ken Keeler?

Well, they are certainly back (they appeared at the panel of comic-con).  And this is just two episodes out of 26.  Maybe they are getting the better stories?  Who knows?  We don't know that much about episodes prior to 6ACV13.
were back baby!

I saw a picture of the writers room. I can't zoom in well enough to see what the board says, but if somebody else knows how or can see what it says then go for it.

it's in the same place as the 100th episode cover and a page of the script. If you go up the page I had the link there. I don't know why it doesn't work now.
