That was hilarious! It did not seem family guy-ish to me. It sort of reminded me of reading a GOOD Futurama comic.

It reminded me more of "I can't go any lower" "I'll say, you're rubbing my ASS!" than Family Guy.

^^ That and "I think I have whiplash, ASS whiplash"
"Bite my shiny metal ASS" and many other variations of it.
"Red hot glowing ASS?"
"You have defaced a national tresure, I demand you restore my BUTTOX to their former glory!"
"Harpoon my ASS"
"It has sensors attached to motion detectors" "So does my ASS but I don't frame it and put it on the wall"
"I can hope my ASS is made of ice-cream but that don't make me a hot fudge sundae."

But...

 "I need mouth to ASS resuscitation" OH MY GOD THEY'VE TURNED INTO FAMILY GUY!!!!1!1!!!ONE1!!!ONE

I bet now that Futurama's back, anytime there's an episode that's not as good as the others or any joke that you could slightly compare to a Family Guy one, everyone's gonna be like "OMFG! FUTURAMA'S GONE SHIT NOW JUST LIKE FAMILY GUY!!!"

As long as each episode of Futurama contains a semblance of plot, it will not become Family Guy. That's the litmus test, by my standards. Be as crude and random as you want, but as long as there's an actual story, you should be fine.

Others include Leela's "Nice ass, ass". But the foghorn-nosed one speaks the truth: new FG = a plot just as an excuse for the asides.

Jeez guys, way to overreact to an offhand comment that I didn't think through enough.

After looking at it properly, it isn't unfunny enough to be a FG joke and it fits with Bender's love of his ass and Fry's stupidity...so yeah I guess it is a Futurama joke after all. Still if the quality does diminish (which I'm sure it won't) it will get comparisons to Family Guy is all I'm saying.

I won't compare it to Family Guy if the quality diminishes. If it diminishes at all, and it's severe enough, I'll just compare it to every single show I've watched that's sold out over the years.

Freako, you just wish you were the one with the lighter.

Or the fire, whatever.

New from Comedy Central Insider:
This is also a scene from Rebirth



Seems a bit of a departure from previous posts...nothing to do with the actual rebirth. Or is it?

How is the studio's title supposed to be read?

'1 to the power 2, 2 to power of 1, 3 to the power of 3'?

Or 1, 2, 9?  Or perhaps Studio 18 (as that would be the result of the equation)?

1 squared x 2 x 3 cubed = 54

Studio 54 was a club in New York ...obviously it's been updated for the 31st Century

Now there's a joke that wouldn't appear in Family Guy

Yeah, I don't quite know what to make of that still. Maybe, uh, it has something to do with regaining memories? Maybe it's Bender (perhaps falsely) reminiscing?

Either that or it's just a funny drawing CC's giving us to screw with our heads.

I like that idea...a false 2970's Space-Disco flashback as Bender "dies"

I am going to take a spin at this one.  And judge it by the looks of the bystanders.  They all seem disgusted.  Now, of course, I am not saying this is always true, but in most cases, I'd think, even a false reminiscing would have some overly positive reactions from the people in the memories, unless it wasn't about that.

So I am going to say that Bender somehow believes he is a disco star, and decides to go out boogieing, much to the displeasure of the other people at the club.

That could also be the case. Maybe that's how act two turns out: while there's all this seriousness going on with Leela not being re-birthed, the rest of the crew goes out and tries to live it up with their new (possibly improved?) bodies. Though that would kind of go against my thinking that the whole fugitive thing needs to be addressed, because I'm pretty sure most fugitives don't hide out at Studio 54. It's what you do at Studio 54 that might make you a fugitive...

What I think is that whole fugitive thing would get addressed in episode 2 where Leela and Zapp are stranded on that planet... You know like how you lock  two people in a room until they work something out.

But I'm almost always usually wrong. I should just stick to doodling pictures.

Everyone is almost usually wrong. Except maybe a few people. I don't know those people.

I'm looking forward to seeing Zapp and Leela on that planet, as long as she gets in a few of the usual kicks and punches, it should be pretty good I think.

Well... I am beginning to tapping my front lip.  My upper lip!  Because this screen may seem... uhm... somewhat noticeable worthy compared to what we can assume from the previous episode.

Now I want to stress, Leela is noticeably missing!  The rest of the crew is obviously there.  So, I am thinking, could this episode be somewhat tied with the previous one?  But I am not sure how that would make sense as Farnsworth and Fry is present.

Well, it is clear that they all got deluded -- I mean, more deluded,  which could be a side effect of the birthing machine, but why would be Farnsworth and Fry be there?  Well, I suppose my theory makes no sense!

So the question is obviously; why did they become crazies?  Do they read about it in a magazine?  Does everyone become deluded on Earth?  There is a woman in the background, she doesn't seem deluded.

And they are obviously coming out of the ship for some reason, maybe it's another planet that looks like Earth, and they are making some sort of crazy scheme to scare its inhabitants by making this crazy predictions of its immediate ending in a complicated scheme to save Leela and Zapp Brannigan from capture after they were stranded on the Eden planet, which turns to be like a strange planet which actually had cities and stuff, but filled with crazies, which is why it is called Eden, because they all believe too much in this Judgement day thing.

Am I making any sense?

I'm guessing this is part of whatever the B story is while Leela and Zapp are gone. As for the woman in the back, it isn't the same color but she is wearing a similar looking robe. I'm going with the theory that the entire Earth, or a large part of it, is equally crazy. That has a tendency to happen on Futurama.

It's possible, but I'm thinking more they just want to keep us guessing re: Leela's 'rebirth'. Still, there's over a month of preview pics to go before the premiere, and not showing the female lead might be a stretch.

That could work. You can't see all of Bender's or Fry's signs, but they look like 'Bender is Great!' and 'The End is Nice!' Well, at least they wrote their own signs.  laff

Edit: Wait, Fry's could still say 'The End is Nigh!'...

Dang, I don't know what to make of today's still, either. I don't like the "Beast with a Billion Backs" vibe I get from it, but the whole Zapp/Leela aspect still intrigues me, so I'm reserving judgment for the time being.

But Hermes' sign says Judgment Day is at hand! Really, though, I don't know what to make of the image either. At least we know what episode it's from, but they're certainly doing a good job of confusing us so far...what a brilliant strategy...

Wow, this is not what I imagined of 602 at all. I always figured that after Zapp and Leela were lost on the Eden-like planet that some of the P.E. Crew (coughFrycough) would volunteer to go on a search mission with the DOOP. I don't know what to make of this still. Maybe tomorrow's post will shed some light.

Crazy Thought TM: Maybe this religious aspect, the whole taking to the streets thing, could actually be the crew's way of rescuing Leela and Zapp. To borrow Svip's terminology: maybe they're just pretending to be crazies; maybe they need to convince Earth that the end really is near for some (to me at present, unfathomable) reason.

Maybe I just don't make a lick of sense.

Yeah, didn't think so...

Looks like the underside of the Planet Express Ship to me - i.e. they've just been unloaded as it were and are setting out to spread their message, whatever that may be...

I'll go along with the idea of it being some form of abstract rescue/diversion strategy smile

Though Leela may only be missing because she's on piloting duty at this juncture?
Mind boggles. smile
Anyway, back to my essay/panic attack!
