Oof! They showed the anime clip. I was hoping for the video game and Fleisher clips to be shown instead so I'd get to preview all three parts of Reincarnation (I assume clips stop on Thursday, so that leaves today and tomorrow), since the anime portion has already been confirmed to be shown at SDCC.

I've read the review for Neutopia and Benderama.  The person gave it such a negative review.  Oh, well, who cares.   I also saw the Overclockwise clip.  Looks really funny seeing Bender inside out! 

I wonder what will happen in that?

Not really, he touched on it. That's not what the episode is about.
By the same logic "Roswell That Ends Well" is about Fry breaking a microwave.

And "In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela" is about Leela taking off her clothes.

And "Godfellas" is about a monk getting stuck in a closet.

I could go on forever.

Seeing as it was a new paragraph and he switched tempo, and seeing as he had already seen the clip and was using future tense, I'm pretty sure he talked about the episode in general. I might be wrong though.

The anime part of that episode seems so un-futurama-esque to me.  Feels more like.... Drawn Together or something.  What's that episode about again? confused

3 Futurama stories animated in 3 different styles, an old 30's style black and white film, a Japanese Anime and a low resolution Video Game.

I'm aware of that.  My real question is why is it like that? 

To clarify.... AOI is segmented into three hypothetical stories... but it has basis in the Futurama universe.  I don't feel that the Holiday Extravaganza was as horrid as its made out to be (it wasn't great either obviously [you ain't winnin' no beauty pageants lady]), but the worst part about it was that it didn't have any basis in Futurama.  In that respect, it was more like random fanfic fodder.... "What if the characters celebrated kwanza and space bees turned them all into wax candles?"... which like I said... would be fine if had a real frame to work with like the AOIs technically did.

If it's actually an AOI episode..... then are these questions going to be... "What if we were animated?" three times in a row?  If that's the case.... that's kind of a weak premise.  Don't get me wrong, I love the 30's style, and different styles in general, but I feel that if it's in an episode, it should have some constructive purpose.  We'll see I guess. roll eyes

Hmm, I see what you mean.

It would have been better if they remade the fan's favourite eps in each animation style. Obviously they wouldn't be as long, but it would be nice to see. Maybe they are, who knows? tongue

It's not AoI. They haven't said anything about whether it will have a basis in the canon universe though. I hope it will, but my hopes aren't high at the moment.

Obviously not, I think we would have recognised the clip or the storyboard.

The clips and storyboards don't reveal much though, do they? The only thing we know is that the name of the Anime segment is called 'Medical Dance Crab with Lesson'....

I'm assuming Zoidberg is going to teach the viewer how to dance....? confused

They show us enough to know they are not remaking fan favourite Futurama episodes. And the storyboard gave us a lot more than the title, including two new characters.

I think it was mentioned in some interview that the episode is non-canon. Originally it was possibly the final episode in the entire series (again), so I guess they just wanted to do something random and fun while they still can.

The impression I have that the purpose of the episode is to just go random. That doesn't necessarily mean that there isn't a border story, but I think it's unlikely at this point.

Wow, that was a great clip. I loved Patton Oswalt's voice, too. ^^ I'm somewhat confused with the Kif-Zapp situation, but I guess it's explained in the episode.

Having the scene unfold out of the window and on the TV at the same time is just awesome animation.

And some interesting comments about the Season numbering. And we finally have a plot summary for Overclockwise!

Quote
The situation we found ourselves in, as always, was that maybe this will be the end of FUTURAMA, so we wanted to write at the end of the season what could be our farewell episode. We decided we would go out with a bang and double our money’s worth. So the second-to-last episode we wrote as your standard last episode ever of FUTURAMA ever. It’s a big science-fiction story of Bender being over-clocked and getting more and more powerful in his computing ability until he can basically foresee events in the future. He ascends far beyond the concerns of mankind and becomes a super-being. Meanwhile there’s this romantic story with Fry and Leela going. So it’s a big sci-fi story and a very touching story.

Now this is starting to sound interesting.

Also, cool to hear that Buzz Aldrin is in the "Cold Warriors" episode.

Bender has to do a lot this season doesn´t he? Replicates, becomes ghost, becomes super-being, goes into witness protection. His fans are gonna love it. 

BTW, review of Neutopia was kinda predictable but it sounds like disappointment nontheless. Well, I´ll survive that, I just don´t like it being one of two season openers.

I enjoyed that Reincarnation clip. Pretty funny, I enjoyed Hermes' part the most.

For the final Countdown to Futurama, something special.

That interview with DXC has given me a lot of warm and fuzzy feelings about how this season is going to turn out. I'm pumped to see more
and the storyline for "Overclockwise" pretty much confirmed what I already suspected, which was that the episode will be
. So, yeah. I'm pretty excited.
