What's with people not being excited about Möbius Dick? Seems like a cool sci-fi story to me, and the one released clip looks promising.

Yo Leela Leela also worries me, a lot...

I think "Yo Leela Leela" will probably just be a gag-centric romp of an episode--not some monster-of-the-week thing, or something about the crew's wacky delivery-related hijinks. It may be, uh, sitcom-ish (or at least Futurama's version of a sitcom), but some of my personal favorite episodes might be considered sitcom-ish ("The Cyberhouse Rules" is a good example, and even "A Leela of Her Own" is not as awful as people make it out to be).

Ahem...

Since I like fun things...

Yo Leela Leela to me just seems like a weak cliche storyline, not much thought put into it
and I'm guessing it will be quite predictable.

A whale in space, it's just a bit absurd like the stingray at the end of ITWGY yet the whale is the main focus of the episode. So thats why I have doubts about that particular episode.

Creatures floating around in space is not far-fetched at all. Many genius scientists, including Stephen Hawking, has posited that the search for extra-terrestrial life should not be limited to planets, but also inside stars, gas clouds and floating around in space.

Ofcourse the possibility of an extra-terrestrial creature being shaped almost exactly like a creature on Earth is extremely unlikely, but it's not impossible. Plus, it's a cartoon show. It's much more unlikely that so many extra-terrestrial species understand English, or that life on the Robo-Planetoid would evolve almost exactly like on Earth. I don't see what's so far-fetched about a four-dimensional space whale.

What about a four-dimensional space penguin...does that sound far fetched?

Anyway that's just my two cents, I can't predict the future I may be entirely wrong.
It may even be the best episode this season, Who knows?

Why, just cause Fry's in it? ¬_¬

And I'm looking forward to all of them I guess, besides All the President's Heads and maybe Yo Leela Leela... hmpf

Great read!

Some season 7 plots revealed:

Bender impregnates a new Planet Express soda machine.

An episode about the 3012 presidential election involving people demanding to see a candidate's Earth certificate.

An episode about predictions that the world will end in 3012.

No. Maybe you should have read my reply before replying to it.

Except for the first one... That sounds like one of the worst plots I've ever heard. It's one of those "you know what we haven't done yet?" stories. I hope it's a B-plot.

To be honest I don't know. I think it's too early to comment properly on it, it could be done well and it could be done badly.

election and 2012!! for now it seems like a great season!!

and just to quote myself from another thread :
End of the world like 2012 but in futurama big grin
yeah that could be a good christmas episode for the season 8, airing like december 21th 2012 , I could easily see a good parody of 2012 with Mom being involved with the omnicronians, a big war episode with santa claus too since it would be a christmas episode...


(am I the only one who think this sound like a Kurt idea?)

I'm especially excited about the election episode. Would be cool to see some change in the presidential office after 12 years with Nixon. :P

I'm just hoping that the Cheney thing is addressed. Is he canon, or not canon, ya know?

I hope that to. Some part of me wants them to find Cheney's body and somehow drop his head in the garbage... and then rename him to Agnew.

I miss Angnew and his growling. He was such a funny headless character. Dick Cheney if you're canon you nothing compared to Angnew!

Oh how I wish they could clone him back!

Agnew was one of those characters that appeared without explanation, yet everyone loved him and didn't seem to care how he got there. Meh, he was alright.

It's not like they'll have somebody else be president. Nixon is now synonymous with Futurama, he's a character that they can't just get rid of.

And, if it hadn't been for TFHS, then I would've said it would be great if they just have Agnew reappear as VP without any explanation whatsoever. But I'd like to see if they actually do something with Cheney.



Bee tee dubs, when they say TFHS is not canon, I think they mean the specific plots and events, not everything down to the last cel is not canon whatsoever. I would go out on the limb to say that Cheney is the current VP in 3011 and that it's more happenstance that the first time they introduced him as such was the "non-canon" story.

Yeah, I think so to. And I think there's some potential in Cheney if they do it right.
