That was great.


Is this where I can get on my high horse for owning a Zune?  Oh wait....

Well, the universe hasn't been fully explored.  Maybe I can't get on a high horse, but my descendants may be able to someday.

I do enjoy my Zune, it's just the whole "batteries expand and crack the screen" bit sucks, as does the "we only make Zune HD's, so there's no more warranty, but we'll take $40 off of a Zune HD" bit.

Just saw a new Futurama promo on Colbert. Aside from showing pretty clearly that they aren't just pulling a reset again it also shows that Leela apparently gets rebirthed twice by mistake which accounts for the second Leela.

What I'm thinking might happen; Bender's rebirth causes problems in the machine Leela is the last to be rebirthed and comes out later as a robot. They fix it but create two Leelas who fight each other for the right to live, one kisses Fry and then the other one kills her.

Considering that there were two shots in the ad I saw last night with the two of them making out rather furiously.

I don't want to be pessimistic, but it's completely possible that the Leela making out with Fry is the evil clone/robot/pre-mutation red one-eyed monster rather than the true Leela.

The same clip also shows that the second Leela is a result of Leela being rebirthed twice by mistake so technically they should both be the same.

The evil twin stuff is based off that promo where the Leela's are struggling. The writers had to have written the twin out in some way and I figure considering the monster has one-eye the second Leela mutates into it.

I just saw that promo, and Fry's definitely making out with Leela (Don't know which one it is though)

What a charming design! Well, kind of.

Is that the time machine the Professor invents, or one they eventually use that allows them to go back?

I like the steampunk look of it. I'd bet we'll get at least one Wells reference, hopefully a Verne too.

Judging from the design, it reminds me of Wells' Time Machine, which only went forward. Strengthens the idea of having some Wells references.

Says it's from act one, so I'm assuming it's the time machine Farnsworth builds. I wonder what possesses him to build it in the first place; we basically determined that that wanting-to-get-to-a-date-with-Leela-faster thing was just idle speculation by people at Comic Con, right?

Good points. I'd hope there'd be a cooler solution to the future issue than just finding another machine anyway.

I read something about why he builds it, I'm sure, very briefly mentioned, but I can only remember that they end up going futher and further into the future, to try and find the technology to get back.

Funnily enough, something that's been bugging me as of late, is Cubert and Dwight. They were in the first movie, and in the second, but they never seem to get any older. As far as the movies made it, we've gone ten years into the future, so shouldn't both of them be nearing 17 now.

The one thing I always loved about the show was that it took into account the time periods, unlike the simpsons which is caught in one time period. Blah.

I still think that there's a good chance he builds it for Fry because Fry keeps being late for stuff given the name "The Late Philip J. Fry". Or maybe he just builds it because he's a scientist and it's what he does. And he was working on a time machine for years as revealed in A Clone of My Own.

Perhaps they'll address this in the new episodes! I just love how Cubert and Dwight got conscripted in the first movie into the kamikaze Children's Brigade, presumed to be shot down by Nudar, and then somehow show up in the second and third movies.

"Late" can also mean dead. And I have a feeling like it'll be one of those inventions that are fully built by the Professor but never mentioned. Like everything else he's ever done.

I assumed the "late" in the title referred to death, too.

Just saw a promo for the season premiere (specifically, I mean--the announcer guy said something like, "On the one-hour season premiere of Futurama" to introduce the clips). It showed Bender being re-birthed, then the entire PE crew on that weird Technicolor Sky planet (that I assumed was from the second episode, but now I think I may be wrong); Fry and Leela are making out, and then a second Leela shows up out of nowhere. Fry breaks the kiss, looks at this new Leela, and says "Leela?" And the new Leela looks at her kissy-face self and says, "Leela?" So I guess this two Leelas thing is what's going to drive much of "Rebirth."

Time goes forward but it is like the Simpsons in the fact that nobody ever seems the age. For example, Amy is still an intern after 10 years, the Professor is still alive and I doubt someone would be sent to the Near Death Star if they still had ten years left, Dwight and Cubert are still kids, etc. Honestly if you had the characters age it would change the dynamic of the show somewhat over time.

I think the four-year hiatus between season four and the movies probably messed with any age-related continuity that the writers may have initially had in mind, anyway--you wouldn't want everyone showing up in BBS, like, middle-aged. And I agree that aging them all too much would wreck the dynamic of the show, but I do kind of think that we're supposed to assume the characters are slightly older than they were in the beginning--certainly not ten years older, but at least a bit more mature. Dwight and Cubert would appear to be the exception to this rule.

I suppose. With the older characters it could always be excused though, because in all honesty, at a certain age you really don't change much from year to year, at least if you look after yourself. So from Fry going from 23 to 33, he's clearly changed in maturity but not looks.

Either way, it's something I thought they would always cover, but I suppose they could avoid it by not mentioning their ages in the new series. I'm just a bit of a stickler for things like that, especially when the time period is mentioned as part of the story line, like it is in BBS.

But Fry did age in BBS, we don't necessarily know that Amy is still an intern, and the Professor has outlasted the Near Death Star before. In Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles, his age is stated as 161 years old. In Bender's Game, he says 165 years old. Aging has already been established as canon.

And on visible aging, you have to remember that in Futurama a 160 year old is like an 90 year old. Perhaps aging has been slowed down.

I'm aware that "Late" can mean "dead". I just presumed that "The Late Philip J. Fry" was a pun.

And Amy's internship appears to be coming to a close in The Mutants are Revolting, remember.

Love the time machine design.

Also, it would seem that ageing in the Futuramaverse is a lot more consistent than the Simpsons, so... yay?

I believe that the title is meant as a double entendre, especially due to the lack of parody with it.

TBH, seeing as this is Futurama, I would *expect* late to mean dead. I mean, if you can't conquer death in the 31st Century, then what can you conquer?

Whoops! I meant the first episode of the 6th season. The crew dies, he clones them back. You can't beat death more surely than that without becoming indestructible.

Okay, I just saw an "On the Season Premiere of Futurama..." commercial on Comedy Central. It didn't show anything we didn't already know, but it did have Bender (and another crew member that I couldn't identify) coming out of the rebirthing machine covered in pink goo. Then, it cut to Fry, making out with Leela (big grin), when another Leela appears. Many of the nearby crew members exclaim "Leela!" until it cuts to Leela standing next to Leela saying "This is just too freaky!"
