Now that Futurama I on Comedy Central and maybe our fave show might become get an adult theme, I wonder what the Amy/Bender episode is going to be like. How they become attractive to each other? Is it just a casual flirt? And I think they may put a bit of Sex with a robot joke in there.

I'm almost positive the Amy/Bender thing is just a scam bender is pulling to be eligible for something.

I agree with Freako: Seems the type of thing Bnder would do, what with her parents being rich and whatnot, would Amy fall for that sort of thing though?

Though she can be ditzy...

For some reason, Zapp looks reluctant to help her, which would explain the look on her face...

I'm looking forward to this... dang I hope the UK get it quickly...

Stupid question: What's that beside Leela on the grass? My first thought was, y'know, folded clothes, but I'm not quite sure that makes sense. At any rate, I'm pretty pumped for this episode, because I love the Zapp/Leela dynamic.

Cool. At least this pic isn't very far away from what we'd expected!

Those do look a lot like folded clothes, though. Maybe Leela suggests they put them on but Zapp prefers to stay nude, or maybe whatever God-entity-equivalent (if there even is one in this case) presiding over the Eden planet has provided them, or maybe both!

Hmm... I was actually hoping for more to be revealed on what the others are doing.

At any rate, maybe that thing on the ground is a spacesuit? Perhaps there is some sort of simulation of Bible-like things and the crew are forced to re-enact parts (Genesis and Doomsday Warnings so far). Leela might want to use the suit to escape while Zapp would rather they stay (and not let her leave). Fat chance, but it's what came to me.

Some entity-equivalent-whatever making them re-enact Bible-like things, hmm... that might work. Those clothes are obviously her size and not his. And I can't imagine Leela willingly taking off her boots around Zapp, let alone everything.

At least she doesn't seem to be screaming in pain... could Zapp be listening to something?

Leela's breasts should have been covered by her hair, Leaves look stupid.
Also by the looks of it, her knees are bent the wrong way.

I got the idea from Star Trek S3 for some reason. Everybody keeps talking about how the lowered budget for Futurama will entail less effects (3D one's at least) and more focus on writing. That reminds me of how Star Trek S3's  lowered budget forced them to write stories that would work on sets, since they couldn't afford to go out. From that I thought of the crew somehow ending up on some planet where they are forced to to go though simulations of Bible stuff, maybe because some alien hyper-intelligence somehow comes to believe the myths of Genesis and Armageddon (and other things) are part of Earth history and wants to see actual Earthlings reactions firsthand. That's convoluted and probably wrong; perfect for speculation.

Leela's breasts should have been covered by her hair, Leaves look stupid.

Considering Zapp is mere feet away from Leela naked, I'd say it's more unbelievable that his leaf manages to stay on.

Hey, we missed some shit with PEEL being down and stuff!

So of course there has been new stuff out of CCInsider:



Which at first got me thinking of that idea the writers originally had with Zapp Brannigan; for him to have an adventure show on television that the crew would watch.

But that's not all news, according to Slashdot, the tenth episode of the new season is going to be "The Prisoner of Benda".

Dammit Svip, You had to post while I was typing out mine.

"I remember in one of the audio commentaries that they were planning to have a TV show within Futurama that would be about Zapp Brannigan and that he had "editorial rights" so he came across even more great and pompous than he already is.
So I guess they finally dug the idea back up."

from the article Svip posted:

'in the 10th episode of the upcoming season, tentatively entitled "The Prisoner of Benda," a theorem based on group theory was specifically written (and proven!) by staffer/PhD mathematician Ken Keeler to explain a plot twist.

well, I think that pretty much precludes the idea that the show is going to dumb itself down now that its on CC.

To the pic below: I sure hope Leela doesn't kiss Zapp let alone have snu snu him, if he afterwards pulls the tree off her for a reward for him!  mad Cause that would be plane stupid of her in my opinion. What do you think?




All that aside Leela looks hot.

We already discussed that picture!  I doubt Leela would make that move.  Given the situation (regardless, in fact), Leela would never ever make a move on Zapp.  In fact, that is what makes their relationship hilarious and comedy will ensure.

Speculating on Futurama commentaries takes us to a whole new level of geekdom--fasten your pocket-protectors, folks.

Topic: I wonder where that title card comes in, if it's for some sort of gag montage or a dream sequence of Zapp's, or if he actually has a TV show. At any rate, my expectations for this episode continue to rise. Like I said, I really love Zapp (and his interactions with Leela); in fact, his presence in "The Beast With a Billion Backs" is part of what makes the movie more tolerable for me than it is for others.

I'd bet that the title card comes from the previously mentioned but never used idea of Zapp having a television series about him. I'd place it in Act 1, Leela says "Oh jeez", Bender makes some snide yet hilarious comment about her and Zapp, they get a mission, they run into Zapp, blah blah blah. You know, usual set up.

"We're back... Again!" Would probably be one of the first spoken sentences.
Or "We're back! ... Again! ... Again!"

YES! I was partially correct! The clothing near Leela is a space suit, as revealed in today's post: http://ccinsider.comedycentral.com/2010/05/17/countdown-to-futurama-undressing-storyboard/

Truly, this is the happiest a nerd can feel (bonus: I was promoted to Starship Captain in the same post).

Where is everybody? Oh, I get it. You guys aren't commenting so you can put forth the illusion that you have a life and thus aren't constantly refreshing the page. OK, I'm going to soak up all this juicy speculation and confirmation while you guys keep pretending you have better things to do. Jerks.

As we can clearly see in the storyboard, the clothing we saw earlier is a space suit. The question is why do they even have space suits? In previous episodes they've been able to use ship scanners to tell whether a planet was Class M or not (215),  so they probably aren't wearing them to check the planet (especially since they remove them and aren't wearing helmets). What about regular clothing? I don't think you have to be naked to wear a space suit (not now and certainly not in the 31st century). This is probably going to remain a mystery until the episode premiers.

Zapp and Leela have apparently been on the planet for a while by Zapp's mention of "continuing surviving".

It appears Zapp has nothing to do with Leela being pinned under that tree, considering that she doesn't appear angry at him and follows his suggestion to remove their suits so as to not dehydrate. He also seems to have built trust with her considering he so quickly and easily convinced her to remove her clothing. Speaking of which, how did she completely remove the suit considering she's supposed to be pinned under a tree?

I hate to say it but that's what struck me the most too (well, what, as opposed to the idea of Leela stripping naked...I know which one *should* strike me the most, it's just...how *does* she free her clothes like that?)

"Hello I'm this Garden of Eden's version of God...let me see if I can't fix this mess..."
"Oh wow, you've freed my clothes, placed them all very neatly in a pile and given us very generous and sticky fig leaves to hide our shame...could you possibly remove this tree trunk off my legs, oh local God?"
"Oh my no, I'm not that sort of God! Anyway, call me if you need anything...you may hear the answer-machine for a while though..."

Oh hello there, unnecessary cleavage shot. Very classy.

At any rate: I am most intrigued by how Zapp and Leela wind up on this planet, and why, as FoA says, she's so unopposed to Zapp's idea of taking their clothes off. Perhaps there were drugs in the cham-pag-an?
