Oh dear, seems like it's the end of this thread. Anyway, I heard on CGEF that the box set for Season Six will be coming out in December, and the Christmas episode will be aired in November.

What! The season DVD is coming out in December? I don't want the Broadcast season DVD, that's only 13 episodes. I want the production DVD like before, NOOOOOOOOO!!!

I agree with you, Trickster.

I hope they at least call it Volume (or Season here in Australia) 5, because then the next half of Season 6 would be Volume (Season) 6 thus making the DVDs and production seasons have the same numbers... Unless Production Season 7 is split into two halves and released on DVD by broadcast season... No, no, no, there's nothing good about this!  cry

Maybe when Season 7 airs next year, they'll make a 6+7 box set.

I'm fairly sure this Broadcast S7 DVD set will be called Volume 5 (possibly part one). Since there is no Volume 5 (since the movies were never released as such (closest they came is a set called "Futurama: The Specials" that wasn't released in the U.S.)), it would be confusing to less dedicated fans (the ones who can't spout off production numbers) to see a jump from 4 to 6 with no 5 in-between.

Interesting. There is also a screenplay of that name written by Peter L. Steinfeld copyrighted in Feb 13 1998.  So this might be one of the famous unused screenplays from the original production run.  Or it could be a coincidence, since there is no mention of Fururama in the 1998 entry, plus it seems a bit too early.

Futurama staff has always stated that there were no unused screenplays from the first run on Fox. Some ideas, but no scripts.

So is there a consolidated list of all the episode titles now known? And don't say Infosphere, because those only list the ones where the episode number is known as well.

I guess I could go digging through the thread...

Benderama
All the President's Heads
Silence of the Clamps
Nine-Tenths of a Zoidberg Is Underwater
Ghost in the Machines
Cold Warriors
Neutopia

Though really looking forward to getting the DVD, I too would have preferred the entire season in one. But as already said...

I think they will skip Volume Five alltogether, and release this as some sort of 6.1 volume, and the next being 6.2.  That sort of thing.

Yes, I presumed that, but why? A jump would definitely confuse people.

I am not taking sides, I'm just curious.

Wouldn't realising the episodes in production order compared to broadcast order also confuse people?

Or did I just blow your mind?

No and no. I think the regular buyer knows more of the broadcast order than production order.

Not after the DVDs were released, the regular buyer did not realise there was a difference.  In fact, many people still think that there was five seasons in the original run.

So I think you give regular buyers too much credit for the original run and too little now.

My first report from Dragon*Con will be published at Toonzone.net probably by Sunday.

Unfortunately, no news about Futurama was revealed. Billy, John and Phil gave us a definite "we don't know" about the future status of the show beyond the sixth season.

And I have to say it was a pretty freaking huge big deal for me -- and a rather high honor -- to be able to serve as moderator for the panel with such a talented group of individuals. I threw some improv at the guys and they were all on top of their game.

We'll also have audio and video (professional-quality, even!) of the panel at a later date (provided there are no issues with the footage in post), so you won't have to watch shaky con fancam on Youtube.

Too bad about the lack of info, but what you gonna do. Awesome if we get to see some nice audio/video!

And yeah, that is an honour. Congrats, man.

See?  Season 7 is going to happen!  Just don't know what release date yet.   'Ghost In the Machines' episode sounds cool!  Also 'Silence of the Clamps'!  Don't see why some people are doubtful about Season 7!

There's a difference between the broadcast season seven and the theoretical production season seven. The broadcast season was confirmed a year ago; it is the 13 remaining new episodes of the 26-episode order, set to air next summer. The seventh production season, however, has yet to be confirmed--though, for my insubstantial and optimistic part, I think it will happen. Especially if DVD sales prove strong, which I'm almost positive they will.

agreed. ratings were good, and i'm sure that dvd sales will be sufficient as well. i reckon that we will be fortunate enough to have at least one more season.

From what I've seen on PEEL, there are now four conventions for naming the seasons:
  • Original production order. That gives you 6 seasons, with all of the 26 new episodes being the sixth season.
  • Original broadcast order. That gives you 8 seasons, with the one "still" airing as Season 7 and next summer's as Season 8.
  • Augmented broadcast order. That gives you 7 seasons, with the one "still" airing as Season 6, next summer's as Season 7, and the movies as Season "0".
  • Production/broadcast hybrid. That gives you 7 seasons, with the original run being 4 seasons, the movies being Season 5, the "still" airing as Season 6, and next summer's as Season 7.


The classical "correct" way to denote the seasons has been by the production order (4 original seasons, the movies as Season 5), but it seems like the new episodes are causing some trouble around here in what is the "correct" way to discuss the new seasons.

Technically, if we want to go by the old "correct" convention of production seasons, that will make next summer's episodes the second half of Season 6 (or Season 6.2, if you want to be able to separate those episodes episodes from the current broadcast season). They're still 6ACVxx episodes.


In short, one could call next summer's episodes any of Season 6, Season 6.2, (Hybrid or Augmented Broadcast) Season 7, or (Broadcast) Season 8. Just make sure that you don't confuse next summer's "Season 7" for the speculated Production Season 7.

Thx Dorsal Axe but we still dont know what number they are... frown

and I guess that ''Law and Oracle'' will be a parody of Law and Order and ''Mobius Dick'' of Moby Dick.

they sound good... I guess.......

I doubt they will be to be honest. A Clockwork Origin wasn't a parody of A Clockwork Orange.

I think Möbius Dick has something to do with a Möbius Strip.  Perhaps a water world on a Möbius Strip where a crazy whaler sail after a whale.

Exactly. Usually the change in the parodied title denotes the matter of the episode, not the origin work's subject. Roswell That Ends Well had little to do with Shakespeare's play but everything to do with Roswell, A Fishful of Dollars had little to do with Clint Eastwood but everything to do with fish, etc. Sure, there are some that actually parody the original (Fry and the Slurm Factory), but I don't see how they're going to parody Law and Order. Moby Dick, possibly, but then again they've already made fun of it once. Then again, with the writers being giant nerds, it's possible the episode has little to do with Mobius strips. Who knows, maybe it deals with Richard Nixon (Tricky Dick). Both titles are too ambiguous to really figure out what they're about.


Oh, and what does "Nine-Tenths of a Zoidberg Is Underwater" parody? I'm assuming this is the Zoidberg origin episode. Also, I feel like the episode will be on par with "Why Must I Be A Crustacean in Love?" and "How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back" (a pretty good but not great episode) just because their long titles give them that feel.

I'd think that too; maybe the title is a play on nine-tenths of a person being water, so by having the word be "underwater" we're reminded of his marine nature. But it's probably a reference to something else, and probably something more specific.

I don't know the reference either, but the Zoidberg story sounds really exciting to me. Also DXC said we would see the origin of Scruffy, right? I just hope his appearance in Prisoner of Benda was it.
