All those styles seem amazing, but I look forward mostly to the last two parts: I grew up with the early cartoons, it was my giant joy from 0 to 12 years old. And anime, well, it was my giant joy from 12 to 17 or something.

I'd say the the perhaps 8-bit-ish cartoon style is what I'm lookin' forward to, even the most crappy writing can't stop me from looking forward to a in animation "beautiful" episode. But, yeah. "Fry Am The Egg Man" and "Overclockwise" have my biggest expectations. (Because of their awesome titles.)

Will the 8-Bit one be similar to AOI 2, when Fry asks what life would be like if it were a Video game?

 
Because that would be awesome

What I'm worried about is that it might be _too_ similar. Ofcourse this one is actually shot to resemble a video game, not reference it a lot, but it will have a lot of video game influences as well, no doubt. I don't think it's just about the video game animation, but about the style it is written... can't come up with a good example for the video game one, but with anime for example there would be massive action sequences and a lot of exaggeration in the vocal lines.

Shouldn't this be in the speculation thread, not the news?

I'm liking the sound of this animation styles ep, but two things need to be done properly. One it needs to have a reason for these different animation styles. It shouldn't just be because they can, it should be integral to the storyline in some way, even if it's the What If Machine or something like that. Secondly the 8-Bit one should literally be that, 8-bit, not some cop-out, but actually go the whole way, the real deal! I bet they won't. Also make it better than the new Xmas ep, for the love of god!...

i'm guessing the low resolution video game or "8-bit" style would look a lot like code monkeys.

Fucking loved that show! Of course, much like Futurama, it got scewed by the network in favor of some non technology related show (It's a shame what G4 has become)

Back to news: There is no news.

The production staff is again/still in limbo and does not know if more episodes are going to be produced. That's the status as of yesterday.

Is that what you can deduce from the lack of information or is there an actual article on the matter?

I'm not merely deducing on this one. But there is no article you can link in your wiki, either.

Or does the same statement on CGEF count? :P

Yes, that at least is easier to link to.  I am not sure how to perfect individual postings on this here forum.  Some forum software allows single post viewings, which can be used as reference where context (i.e. the posts surrounding it) are not important.

The excuse is still lame.  I have never been a fan of universal translators in science-fiction.

It might be lame, but I really don't see how it ruins The Sting. That's just silly.

Marc's news: Dang. That is very discouraging. Hopefully they will make a decision shortly after the DVDs go on sale?

The ratings started strong, but seemed to gradually drop , so that might be what is making the decision-makers hold off on ordering more episodes. Still, it's hard for me to believe that it's flat out unprofitable, when you factor in legally-paid-for downloads and DVD sales.

I wonder if they have access to DVD and BR preorder numbers.  That might give them some idea of projected sales they will get after the discs hit the stores.

Oh, I guess some other news I forgot. I got around to updating the CGEF episode guide with the next 13 episodes: http://www.gotfuturama.com/Information/EpisodeGuide/6ACV/

The whole thing is somewhat tentative. I don't know the air dates, the titles and airing order can still change, and I only got the writers up to 6ACV17 and descriptions up to 6ACV20. But I believe it's the first time that there are at least tentative names for all ACV codes.

I'm a little bit worried about Ghost in the Machines... they already killed Fry and had him reappear as a "ghost". Such an episode need a real emotional turbulence in the moment of death and until he reappears, and 20 minutes is rarely enough time for that. They did it well in The Sting, but can they do it as well again? AND find a good reason for him to resurrect without it being entirely non-canon?

I'm sure it will turn out fine. No need to worry.

I have a feeling that we may see a good Zoidberg ep for once.

No, I don't know that. I only know that part of the reason why I don't have all the writers is that the writing credits aren't all finalized just yet (what that exactly means, I don't really know; could be something minor like signatures missing under some contracts).

Mr. Jivefunk, you can't get lower than 6ACV13, ("Attack of the Killer App" was better, a lot. Even that "In-A-Gadda-Da-Crappa" was better, No talkin' bees there.)
But if Michael Rowe writes "Futurama Reincarnation", I'm going to kill myself.  hmpf
Thankfully Ken Keeler is writing the episode.

He's writing the penultimate episode, not "Futurama Reincarnation", unless he's writing two episodes back to back which seems extremely unlikely.
Yes. Once again have they given the task to Mr. Keeler to write the "real" finale. Just like in season 4.
I'm just happy to have seen him write another episode (The Prisoner of Benda) in the season. (Seems like he was busy writing TDHAIP in S4.)

You seem sure that he's writing Overclockwise, CommanderZapp. Can you please tell me when and where they said that he was writing the canon finale?

Also, the episode where Fry becomes a cop is the only one I'm not too happy about. Seems like it's been done many times before, but I guess it may turn out to be decent.

You should at least check the Infosphere or Google before asking stupid questions.

"Now I will say at this point, having written the last episode for FOX, and the last DVD for the DVD releases, and now being back again, and being pretty far along in production, we’re the show with the most experience in writing our last episode ever. We’re getting good at it – we’re doing our third one that we’re actually working on here at the moment – they’ve all been written by Ken Keeler, I should mention, who is writing his third last episode ever." — Cohen, David

It meant he was writing the finale, which also was exactly what you asked about. What is considered the finale is a totally different question, but they seem to mean Overclockwise.

I think that "Overclockwise" in a way is an awesome name for a third series finale.
But I would rather (In some way...) have a different title.

 "The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings" in an epic and dramatic (in all ways) title. It has the feel of a finale.

"Into The Wild Blue Yonder"... Oops... "Into The Wild Green Yonder" is also a (somewhat) epic title.

But I ought to stop whinin' 'bout a title.
Content's what matters.

Wait... "theinfosphere.org" says that Mr. Keeler is writing "Reincarnation".
Misleading indeed... But it seems more likely that he's writing the canon finale.

The quotation is on The Infosphere, as is the link. But the quotation in itself is misleading, as it doesn't say which finale Ken Keeler is writing, the "real" one or the one that is the final episode. Confusing? Yeah.

The quote is misleading, and the article in question to should take that stance on it.  While I cannot say for sure, I am going to assume Keeler is writing "Overclockwise" and not "Reincarnation".

If the almighty "Svip" says so, the "Svip" shall people follow.
And, yeah. That's what (almost, perhaps...) everyone thinks anyway.
Thanks for clearing that up.

But still, Mike Rowe shall NOT write "Futurama Reincarnation", We want to bring back Eric Kaplan!

Reincarnation was originally 6ACV25, when Cohen mentioned Keeler was writing the final episode. Then in a later interview he said that they're debating switching the order, as Reincarnation is a non-canon episode, and they like the idea of a "special" episode after the finale. And then recently, he revealed Reincarnation really-truly-is the final episode, so the second-to-last episode is the final canonical episode that Keeler is writing.

Besides, it wouldn't make much sense if Keeler was writing an episode that had no continuity with anything else, when the whole point is that he has to wrap it all up yet again.

I agree. It sounds terribly "Simpsonsesque" but if they put funny/interesting futuristic twists on police job (unlike baseball playing in "A Leela of her own") it might be classic. I am also very curious how Neutopia will look like . It smells llike heavy satire.  

EDIT:I´ve just discovered what Yo Gabba Gabba! is. Now I am worried about future Leela story.

Yeah, hopefully they just made a parody off of the name and nothing else.  The idea of Leela being associated with a goofy children's show, well I guess I don't know enough yet to be worried but I see where you are coming from.
