Seeing as nobody is going to put this on YouTube (or at least nobody put the last preview on YouTube), would someone please transcribe it for us who live outside of the US?

Bender needs money for a bail out (you know, like in "A Fishful of Dollars"), but who has money that he knows?  Amy.  That connection makes perfect sense to me.  The video, however, does not explain Amy's interest in Bender.

I think Kif will keep on bugging Amy about the troubles of Beast With a Billion Backs, leading to Amy in a protest rebounding upon Bender. Just my theory.

I don't think they'll overtly reference Beast. From that clip, it seems like the relationship has had plenty of other troubles. It's funnier to bring up brand new, random anecdotes than to reference one we all remember seeing.

What explanation do you need? Bender's cool, selfish, and treats everyone around him badly; in my experience that sort of combination draws women like flies. laff

Apologies if this is widely available, but a while ago one of the writers Twitted a blurry photo (which has since been taken down) of a page containing mathematical typesetting on it; that's very likely the lemma used in "The Prisoner of Benda".  Does anyone still have a copy of it?

Yeah, but then there's that whole thing where he doesn't have man parts. I can't see Amy staying interested long in a guy who has no man parts AND is a jerk.

I just hope that Proposition Infinity either will destroy Kif's and Amy's relationship forever, or harden it in the end when they realise they want eachother.

I don't know why the writers would want to break Kif and Amy up permanently; their relationship adds a certain dimension to their characters. I mean, I think episodes about Kif and Amy are pretty hit-or-miss (Buggalo is awful, "Kif Gets Knocked Up a Notch" is one of my personal favorites; and, of course, we can't forget "Amazon Women in the Mood"), but they're still fairly interesting characters, and they're a nice distraction from the push-and-pull of Fry and Leela's on-again/off-again thing.

It's because Amy started off as the stock "whore" character. It's the gut writing instinct to still use her as that.

Pleae... don't go there.  I'm sure that we'l get plenty of Rule-34 Amy-slash-Bender fan art and fan fics.  That's way too beneath the quality of the intellect and talent invested in your previous art work.

Stay classy, FemJesse, stay classy

I really love that clip! The idea that The Professor would be against Bender is great, he is the perfect character for it, and I can't recall seeing any other Prof v Bender episodes, except perhaps Bender Should Not Be Allowed On Television.

That he either lives in Canada or the United Kingdom.  Comedy Central has special agreements there, that disallows viewers there from using their website.  Basically whoever they sold the rights to there takes over, and it's up to them to post the clips.

ANYWAY, George Takei in a self appearing role that actually makes sense?  When will FistfulOAwesome get his revenge?!

He may not have appeared in that list, but Cohen did mention him several times in interviews, just never specifying what he did.  But watch the clip again, you are in doubt.

Given how he has appeared on the show twice before, I would say it would be pretty insulting to substitute him for an imitator.  In addition, he wouldn't appear as his head in any case.  And since Cohen has mentioned this several times, there will be no 'wait and see'; we already know.

The Futurama dudes have replaced people more than once before, and even though it would be meaningless if Takei's part isn't larger than this, we don't know if it really is larger. And seeing as I haven't seen such an interview I will wait and see until I do. At least that's what I meant, but re-reading your post you seemed more confident than the first time I read it through rather quickly, and so I'll take your word for it. Sorry, but it is kind of late.

Quote
Katee Sackhoff is playing a visitor to Comic-Con who has a fetish for aliens. She threw herself into the role in an impressive fashion. In our 100th episode special,  Mark Mothersbaugh and Devo campaign for mutant rights — Leela’s parents are second-class, mutant citizens who live underground in the sewers. The members of Devo have mutated over the years, and Mark Mothersbaugh helps out in their campaign for equality. Craig Ferguson has the most remarkable guest role of the year: He is playing a talking part of Leela’s body. We discover that Leela has a little more to her being a mutant than we knew about. Chris Elliott is playing a very persnickety space probe that goes around censoring things that it thinks are indecent, and he finds nudity both interesting and offensive. George Takei will be back. I’m proud to announce that Al Gore will be rejoining us in our environmental-themed holiday episode [airing next season]. He will help explain the future versions of Christmas, Robanukah, and Kwanza, along with Coolio, a natural pairing. Patton Oswalt will appear in next season, playing a character called Unattractive Giant Monster. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the first appearance by David X. Cohen, in the Comic-Con episode. The heads of Matt Groening and David X. Cohen will appear on a panel of writers for the new show that Matt Groening has created in the Year 3010.

Emphasis mine

Don't just take my word for it.  I know I'm right.

It is George Takai.  The real deal.

Considering that he was one of the opponents of Proposition 8 in 2008, it's a logical episode for him to appear.

Hmm...has Futurama ever been this specific in regards to parody before? Where it took a single real-life issue and made it the focus of an episode? Maybe it did, and I just don't remember...

What I've seen of this ep reminds me, most uncomfortably, of Family Guy. Yeah, I know, others have been saying that, for various and sundry reasons, but...I guess I prefer Futurama when it relies less on parody and pop-culture reference and more on situation and character interaction. And when it doesn't push a particular point of view, as this new ep seems to be doing. I'm not a fan of Family Guy for that reason. When I'm in the mood for comedy flavored with parody and pop-culture references, I prefer South Park, because it tries hard to make fun of everybody, and genuinely seems to avoid what is commonly called an agenda. Futurama's too good to rely heavily on current headlines for its comedy inspiration. After all, it's got a wonderful world and hilarious characters to draw from. Well, anyway, I hope my misgivings are wrong. We'll see...

I Dated A Robot and the first half of Bender's Game did, yes. (there may be one or two others that did as well but those are the first two that come to mind)

As for the "pop culture" thing, I fail to see how the issue of gay marriage is in any way pop culture.

Oh yeah, and that preview video made me laugh at loud several times so I'm looking forward to this episode (but still not as much as The Late Phillip J. Fry).

I still feel that authors are more and more embracing spirit of fanfictions, which the combination of Amy and Bender (even for satirical purposes) IMHO is. On the other hand, Attack of the killer app would be fine if it wasn´t for a few specific elements, so I believe in a slow improvement.

Amy/Bender seems to be a fauxmance for the explicit purpose of stirring up the robosexual debate of the episode. I don't find it to be fanfictiony because the point of doing this is not shipping.
