You know what, I'd love that too. I'd love it if 2-parters became more standard because I'm a real sucker for them.

My favourite episodes of South Park tend to be 2-parters and Who Shot Mr Burns? was incredible. I think I'd enjoy a 2-parter of Futurama and it would take the strain off of their running time which does seem to be causing trouble with some episodes.
The Late Philip J. Fry would have made for a good 2-parter, but I'm happy with what we got.
I just hope the writers don't hold back from making a 2-parter in the future, they seem to be against the idea. And it wouldn't be too against the style of the show as it's established given that season 5 was basically 4 4-parters.

I still can't see TLPJF being a 2-parter... They could of added a few more bits into it, but not enough to make another ep... hmpf

the side-plot(modern day-pe) could have EASILY been expanded(actually, my only slight gripe about the episode), and they could have stayed longer, or went to a few more, points in time.

Exactly, flesheatingbull. The stuff with Leela taking over Planet Express, and dealing with her feelings over Fry's death, was really interesting and dramatically-rich. I loved the glimpses we got in the episode, but I suspect there were more scenes that could have taken place in a similar vein, filling in some of the intervening years at Planet Express.

That's not to say that I don't love "The Late Philip J. Fry" as it is, though; it's damn-near perfect, and the PE stuff is great. I guess I'm just being greedy.

It would of been cool if they went forward 3 years to like a random scene with the PE crew, then made that scene into an ep like in Season 8... laff

Like the 3012 ep, they could have gone forward to the world blowing up or whatever then made the ep.

Or a completely random scene made into an ep, kind of like how they (sorta) pre-planned Nibbler's shadow.

3. Seems like a rip-off of that Simpsons ep with Lisa's tooth.

Haha I knew I would get that response. It's not my Idea, it's Straight from the mouth of a futurama writer. The ideas are usually just a few sentences long, Rogers said, like main character Fry realizing there’s a tiny alien civilization living on his toe nail.

That's also similar to "Parasites Lost," especially if the civilization believes Fry (or his toenail) to be the known universe.

It's funny 'cause he probably has no idea that you've got such a huge crush on him, or he'd be taking out a restraining order. tongue

Tedward, your post got in the way of mine at the last second and made me need to add a quote to make it make sense. For this, I will kill you.

He really doesn't mind me talking to him, and I don't just ask him stuff that I want to know, I ask him stuff YOU guys want to know. We're lucky that we have someone who actually talks back, yeah he's not a huge part of the team, but he's still awesome. So, shut up. tongue And I do not have a crush on him, I'm just grateful that he actually replies and stuff.

Know what I think would be interesting? An episode in which Zapp and Kif swap jobs.

I am kinda hoping to see a Zapp/Kif comraderie type subplot in the near future. The dynamic between those two is comedy gold. Though it is funny that it seems nothing has changed since Kif's superior has slept with his fonfonru.

Some kind of senerio where Fry has been elevated to a plane way above his capability, some-how gets the Omicronians and Decipodians involved, only to have Zoidberg be forced into mediation.

Agreed, it would have made the greatish but not very great Mutants Are Revolting episode a lot better.  It was allright and was one of the better ones of season 6, but it had no business being the 100th episode.  

I have a few ideas for future episodes:

I think they should do an anthology of interest that features a Steampunk segment.  It could feature nods to Jules Verne, and poke fun at the idea that while steam powered robots and spaceships would look cool, they would be extremely impractical, even in Futurama's setting.  Still a steampunk New New York would be worth watching, I think!  I also would like to see what steambot Bender would look like.   The Crushinator could make as a cameo where she resembles one of the first steam trains, such as the Rocket or Puffing Billy. 
 
I would like them to do an episode where the crew land in London.  There are plenty of things they could parody like Dr Who, Blake's 7 and the Clangers.

I have a weird idea that stemmed from a strange dream I had a few weeks ago.

It basically involves a bunch of alien civilizations returning all their now useless dark matter to Earth by dumping it into our oceans. Eventually so much is dumped that Earth slowly transforms into a high gravity environment/sea levels rise/bla bla bla bla bla.

It seems a little too similar to the Garbage pile being pushed out into the Ocean in 'A Big Piece of Garbage' and the giant Ice Cube from 'Crimes of the Hot'.... hmpf

I actually think of "Brannigan Begin Again" when I think of a high gravity earth.

And yeah I know haha, just felt like sharing - we've probably seen too many "save the world/environmental message" episodes anyway.

Also on a personal note, I kinda hope Al Gore never appears on the show again (especially after his last appearance...)

He probably will, he's been a huge fan of the show since it started and his Daughter worked on it for quite some time. wink

I want to see more Amy episodes, I know not all of them have worked, but most Zoidberg episodes were failures until the Tip of The Zoidberg was made and it was a huge success.
