In the 100th episode, has it been said if Morris and Minda (Leela's parents) will join the revolt?

They will be in, as far as we know.  But whether they will actually take part in the revolt is unknown.

I was watching a tv when a direct tv commercial came on and it showed part of the schedule of Fox and the line up was Family Guy, Futurama, And 24.... strange..

Well, there was a chance that Futurama would return to Fox.  Isn't anything related to that?

I know that FOX can broadcast new Futurama too, but I think it should be after Comedy Central premieres the new episodes.

Since this is the spoiler thread, I will a commentary here on the recently confirmed episode titles, let me list them again from here:

A Clockwork Origin
This is pure speculation on my part, but I am going to assume this is the Leela/Zapp plot where they are trapped on a planet alone.  Though, Quolnok makes a compelling case for this being the time travel episode or the Zoidberg/Scruffy origin episode.  Though I think they are saving the Scruffy episode for later.

Attack of the Killer App
This is to my mind the most likely to be about the iPhone/Twitter plot, that they spoke of at Comic-Con as well as Cohen stating it would be 6ACV03.  Anything else would seem unlikely.

Inspector #5
Am I getting an Inspector Gadget plot parody sensation or what?

Rebirth
Yeah, we already know this one.

That Darn Katz!
So they finally gave their producer an episode, huh?!  I speak of course of Claudia Katz.

The Duh-Vinci Code
Hm, they did talk about a plot where Bender was in the Vatican, this sounds likely to be it.  Maybe we will finally see the Space Pope!

The Late Philip J. Fry
I too get a "The Sting" vibe from the episode title, but I doubt it is that.  It might be the time travel episode, where they travel to a point where Fry is dead or something.  Or perhaps something else entirely.

The Prisoner of Brenda
I guess Brenda might be a reference to something, but I am not getting it.  So this episode remains a bit of amiss to me.  All I know it is a female name.

Ah, but Quolnok sets me straight here as well, Brenda is of course the warden in Into the Wild Green Yonder, who might be capturing a new prisoner, probably female, I suppose, since her prison is a woman prison.

"The Late Philip J. Fry", if not an episode dealing with something that you thought of, could be something exploring his late-nephew who was named for him, but I'm not so sure they'd go back to that either...

It'll be interesting to see how right or wrong we are though.

The title (and possibly the episode) could be a reference to either the book or film The Prisoner of Zenda where a man has to impersonate a king, whom he happens to closely resemble, when the king is abducted by enemies on the eve of his coronation.

Don't know if the characters would fit into that scenario or if they're just referencing the title...

Well, sometimes, I gather, they refer the title and its plot.  But not always.  Take Bender's Big Score, it didn't have much to do with Shaft's Big Score now did it?  Or "Godfellas" with Goodfellas or The Godfather.

But thanks for the information, regardless.

The more I think about it the more I think "The Late Philip J. Fry" will be Philip J. Fry II (the original Martian).

Inspector #5 - you know those labels and stickers you get on stuff you buy; "Inspected by #5" yeah, I'd say that's the kind of inspector we're looking at here. Could be that our new friend Five will show up in the background a few times before shkler episode.

You copied the named of "The Prisoner of Benda" wrong. It's Benda, not Brenda. You know, like him, Bender.

I wouldn't be surprised if The Late Philip J. Fry is the time travel episode. It could be referencing Philip J. Fry II and not our good ole Fry, furthering the possibility of it being time travel based. And wasn't the time travel one supposed to deal with Fry's death? Is Tom Kenny supposed to guest? Would further the possibility of it being a Fry Deuce episode. It certainly sounds the most interesting of all the episodes, along with A Clockwork Origin (they did say we're getting a Scruffy origin episode, right?).

I know we are getting a Scruffy origin episode.  But my assumption is that this episode will come... later.  Of course, you can flip that argument over and say that most of the plots we have heard about at the Comic-Con seems to be fitting nicely for this first broadcast season of season 6.

But we were also getting a Zoidberg origin episode.  Soo... eh?

I've never seen it mentioned that the Warden's name was Brenda... at least I can't find any references.

But speaking of, presumably the Feministas get pardoned, or we'd never see Linda reading the news again. The episode might have something to do with that.

Well, i_c_weiner has a point, I spelt 'Benda' wrong, I just assumed it was Brenda because that was a name I have heard of.  So in fact, it may have nothing to do with that.

I'm taking that as later in this next broadcast season. I don't think they'd enthusiastically announce something at Comic-Con to be in the upcoming season just to hold it off for another two years from the announcement. It would make no sense from a business standpoint, especially when not everybody's not rabid geeks like us and don't know the difference between broadcast and production seasons. Additionally, some of these new episodes seem to be very topical and airing them so late would cause them to lose their meanings. Think if the robosexual episode were aired next year and sometime between now and then same-sex marriage is legalized throughout America. Wouldn't be so topical, eh? I'd be willing to bet that all the announced plots from Comic-Con (unless specifically said otherwise) are for this first new broadcast season and not the production season as a whole. Thus, instead of the origin episodes coming in late Production Season 6 (meaning Broadcast Season 8 in summer 2011), they'll come in late Broadcast Season 7 (this summer).

I think the Scruffy and Zoidberg origin were going to be the same episode.
The problem with that is that Futurama is only 22 minutes long. If we factor in intro and outro (about 5 minutes overall), they would only get around 8 minutes each for their stories, far from what was expected from the original announcement. Even 45 minute long series like Lost try to only fit one character's origin into an episode. One episode of Lost did multiple characters, but each only got 2-6 minutes of screen time, only enough to get you interested in them but not enough to classify as an origin story.

I'm almost positive that won't be a problem.

I'll state again that I'm positive that the Zoidberg/Scruffy origin stories are the same episode, with Zoidberg's hiring being the main story point and Scruffy's hiring being a joke at the end (Zoidberg is hired for saving The Professor's life and/or Planet Express, leaves, after which Scruffy enters, inquires about the Janitor's position, and is hired immediately). I'm willing to stake my Black Jack and Hooker Theme Park on that.

It'll be interesting to see how right or wrong we are though.

Maybe the title refers to Fry showing up late for his date with Leela, a storyline that was reported here sometime or other...

Agreed. An episode with too much Scruffy would just ruin the character.

I doubt they'll be an Inspector Gadget parody.  And in the episode, "The Late Philip J. Fry" will probably be a case of mistaken identity plot to me!  Can't wait to see, "The Duh-Vinci Code"!  

Oh, and will Rebirth be shown first?  From the list of these episodes, looks like it's out of order.   It will be interesting to see the origins of Zoidberg and Scruffy.   Maybe in the "Prisoner of Brenda" the rest of the Feministas escape.  

And even if there is an Inspector Gadget parody, I hope it's not like that crappy movie from 1999 where Matthew Broderick played him, where they have Fry become like him and have Leela get captured by a mad scientist like in that stupid movie.

Um, if I remember correctly, the episode plot announced was that Fry was constantly late for his dates with Leela so he asked the Professor about a time machine, which sends him to the end of time. Or something like that.

No it fucken' wasn't! All they announced was a time machine episode where fry couldn't wait ten minutes for something then somebody said "Hey, it might be a date with Leela".

Svip is the awesomeness of awesomeness.  I need some sunglasses, seriously, people.

Anyway, 3 new episode titles are up from the Copyright catalogue!

  • In-a-Gadda-Da-Leela
  • Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences
  • Proposition Infinity

Awesome.

Please continue in the spoiler thread about the new episode titles.

Not a big fan of the whole "discussing episode titles/storylines is spoiling it" thing but okay, whatever.

I'm guessing Proposition Infinity must be the Bender/Amy episode?
