"On again off again" as it says in the article doesn't necessarily mean they're going back to the constant "Will you go out with?" me thing again. If I had to guess I would say it probably means more of an rocky relationship thing than another reset. Fry does lots of stupid things that piss Leela off after all. I'm guessing Fry posting embarrassing pictures of her on the internet goes under that category.

I still think DXC meant what he said and they will press the reset button.

Yeah, you keep saying that but I thought what he meant was something more along the lines of the way the relationship was on and off in the original series, but with Fry and Leela being together instead of Fry trying to get Leela to like him.

I'm with Jezzem. F&L are in a relationship with all it's ups and downs, but we won't see it every episode. Maybe just little things, like walking hand-in-hand when the story isn't focused on them.

And Jezzem loves his dancing sandwich.

6ACV06: Lethal Inspection
Bender learns that he suffers from a mortal manufacturing defect.
^Completely new information (as far as I remember). Sounds interesting.

Actually, the fact he's defective isn't news at all. He was recalled waaay back in season 2.


Also, while they don't mention Rebirth specifically, they list ItWGY pts1-4, IaGDL and "untitled" as airing on the 24th, so the "untitled" would be Rebirth

It lists "Rebirth" as "Untitled". I would reason that by saying we only got hard confirmation that "Rebirth" was the actual episode title name rather than a place holder when Comedy Central said it was the episode's title. Before that, we had DXC et al acting like it was a place holder.

On 6ACV07, I'm still saying that the episode is the same as the one where Fry's late for his date. Weren't we told before that the episode would be Fry being late for a date and the Professor sending him a minute ahead in time, which turned out to be 1000 years?

I seem to recall getting that information from the various sources present at ComicCon, but I'm way too lazy to find a link.

As for these past two updates: that storyboard was funny and that drawing reminds me, randomly, of The Wizard of Oz. And I just noticed that a new guy has been posting the updates this week, which may help to explain the lack of really corny/annoying "jokes."

Considering the synopses/plot lines we have on The Duh-Vinci Code and Lethal Inspection, I'd place the tornado image in LI. Additionally, I overlooked that the Hedonism Bot sketch is from DVC. Given that this episode takes place on a Roman planet, this should be interesting. Perhaps this is where Hedonism Bot takes residence?

That doesn't make sense to me.  No matter how much I wrap my head around it.  "Rebirth" was confirmed about the same time as the following episode names.  We knew this from the copyright catalogue and whatnot.  So when Comedy Central revealed the episode titles (to MSN, somehow), they must have released "Rebirth" as well, as it was already copyrighted and signed.

I am going with MSN picking this data up 'automatically' and not very legit.  Let me sum it up for you:

The rightmost column says 'Original Air Date' (or in plain English, the date this episode was first aired on television somewhere).

We all know that Into the Wild Green Yonder's episodes aired 30 August 2009.  That's almost a year ago.  So listing them as 24 June 2010 is wrong.  That's not their original air date.

But my largest problem with this source is that MSN is the only source reporting this.  Shouldn't tv.com and/or epguides.com also be reporting this?  I am sure there are even more outlets out there who specialises in this, but aren't listing the same details as MSN.

The tornado image's file name is "604-Tornado.jpg" while Hedonism bot's sketch is labelled "6ACV04" meaning both are Proposition Infinity.

Also, Lethal Inspection may be a new name for Inspector #5...

MSN is a secondary source as best I can tell, they get info direct from CC/Fox. tv.com and epguides (which haven't even got all the filmisodes) are tertiary, data comes from the users who edit tvcomb's data - provided the moderator approves the change.

"untitled" is simply a mistake. The kid they hired to fill in the data left a field blank and no one noticed. He was could have accidentally changed the data on the other episodes, or they may not have been in their system

Been away from this thread for a while, but all these updates are pretty tantalizing eh? I'm most looking forward to The Late Philip J. Fry if that's the time travel to the future episode. I can just imagine so many funny scenarios with that. Getting closer...

I seem to recall getting that information from the various sources present at ComicCon, but I'm way too lazy to find a link.

Since Freako seems too tired to blow his top disproving this anymore, I'll do it. There was never any confirmation from the writers that that was even remotely true. Some site heard of the plotline and speculated that Fry wanted to use the device to make a date on time. This got spread as fact (or near-fact). We now know that in all likelyhood that isn't a part of the plotline at all. DXC said so. He said that Fry is present when The Professor decides to test-drive it by going 1 MINUTE into the future, which would be too impatient for anybody to want to skip ahead to. See:

Quote
The Professor invents a time machine that only goes forward in time. Once they start going, there is no hope of return. And the initial goal is to just go a minute forward into the future and test it out, but the Professor trips and they’re immediately 1,000 years in the future with nowhere to go but forward. So they spend the episode going further and further through all future history trying to find the technology for a backward time machine.

I've not seen an advert narrated by Fry.. but hey, I don't have CC in my country. It would be nice to see a few more teasers prior to the premiere of Season 6

@ComedyCentral and @CCInsider have not posted anything in more than 8 hours.. and that's kinda odd.

If I can't find an air date for Futurama Season 6 for the UK, then I'll just have to watch them on the internet. We do have Comedy Central in the UK, but it doesn't show Futurama. We watch Futurama on Sky 1,2 and 3, and when new episodes get shown in the US, we will get them months after. Like for example, Bender's game. It got shown in the US in 2008, and we got the DVD of Bender's game in the same year, yet it didn't show in the UK until 2009, so I'm not going to wait months for them to air in the UK.

Roberto armed with a sock could kill this guy by suffocating him with it, stuffing it into his mouth and choking him to death with it, or even pick up one of Bender's bricks if he just so happens to drop one out, and stuff the brick into the sock and bash him to death with it.

Right?

And besides that I'm glad he's back with his: Boogalee-moogalee-moogalee. Heh-heh, haah, haah! Ha-haa! Haah, haah!

Well maybe not, along those lines. But anyhoo, I'm glad he's back.

Epguides doesn't even have the new season listed yet.   The one I'm looking forward to is Proposition Infinity.  Bender and Roberto in a jail cell together sounds hilarious!     Does anyone know when this episode will air?  The Duh-Vinci Code sounds cool, too!  They go to future Rome in it, Bender would like Italy!

The promo image is from 6ACV04 Proposition Infinity. Interesting considering that Bender and Amy are the couple in the episode.

Also, whose place is this? The pink and picture of Mr. and Mrs. Wong make me think Amy's, but then there's a picture of Zapp in the top right corner.

Didn't we see a glimpse of Amy's apartment in "Put Your Head on My Shoulder"? At any rate, I'm assuming this is her apartment; I don't think Kif is that emasculated.

I think the Bender+Amy episode is a stupid idea, because Amy is already in a strong relationship with Kif, and I don't think they will split up. I hope that Fry and Leela NEVER get married. Why you ask? It's because the show would get boring if they were married.

The picture of Zapp is a little confusing, but then, the whole Kif/Zapp relationship is a funny one anyway. It's nice to see Kif and Amy seem to be back together, though if this is meant to be the episode involving Bender and Amy, could it be that this is a dream of Amy's, where she wants to be back with Kif.

Either way, interesting post.
