I am pretty sure that it was referring to 9/10ths of an an Iceberg being underwater.

AH, right. So there's a lot of Zoidberg's deep emotions we don't know? Awesome.

i wonder if 'möbius dick' will have something to do with the whale oil situation.

i think that the name, 'möbius dick', is just being a play on the mathmatical object and the book about the whale; not anything to do with either separately.

It'll relate to one of the two. The names do tend to have something to do with the plots.

I like the whale oil idea actually.

Ugh, it has to have something to do with math.  Otherwise the inclusion of Möbius does not make sense.  I am thinking it went from 'Moby Dick' to 'Möbius Dick' rather than 'Möbius strip' to 'Möbius Dick'.  Why would you add 'dick'?

And always is it the changed word that is important.  Like in "A Clockwork Origin", "A Fishful of Dollars", "Roswell That Ends Well", etc.

Look at the pattern.  It must have something to do with Möbius and/or a Möbius strip.  I am still betting on the Möbius strip water world.

So does that round out the episode titles for Season 6.2 or are there anymore we don't know yet?


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.
I think it would be quite fitting if Scruffy's origin story was shoved into the Zoidberg story. You get one scene of the Professor saying, "Who are you?" Scruffy: "Scruffy, I'm a janitor." Professor: "You're hired!" And that being it.

From CNN:

Quote
CNN: Can you give us any spoilers for next season?

LaMarr: There is a strong likelihood that there will be an upcoming episode with some math in it. That's all I can say!

Not super-strong confirmation, but it's something.

I'd be really impressed if the episode involves Möbius transformations of the complex plane or the Möbius inversion formula rather than the Möbius strip.

Though I think the strip itself is more crowdpleasing.

I started reading about the 2004 novel "Mobius Dick" by Andrew Crumey, and it sounds like a cool plot I almost hope Futurama will parody (though I suppose it's most likely just a coincidence).

Quote from: Wikipedia
Mobius Dick (2004) is a novel by Andrew Crumey. It features a parallel world in which Nazi Germany invaded Britain and Erwin Schrödinger failed to find the wave equation that bears his name. This world becomes connected to our world due to experiments with quantum computers.
The science-fiction plot centres on a mysterious mountain hospital in the Scottish highlands. Interweaving tales re-write the historical stories of Robert Schumann's stay in similar clinic in Endenich and Schrödinger's visit to the Alpine sanatorium of Arosa, both of which echo the situation in Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain. Connections are drawn from the tales of E. T. A. Hoffmann, particularly The Life and Opinions of the Tomcat Murr.

Any more news from dragoncon?
Nothing *headline newsworthy* was revealed at the Futurama Cast panel. They didn't even have any clips to show. But it was an hour and a half of very entertaining Q&A with the audience.

I've seen a lot of VA panels at conventions in the last 10 years where audience Q&A either got out of control or just wasn't good at all.

At this one, all the questions were great and not a single audience member abused the privilege of getting to ask a question by doing something self-serving or asking a stupid, inane or awkward question.

Photos will be published on my blog and others on my reports for toonzone.net over the course of the next week. And I should also have access to hi-res photos and audio/video direct from the con staff this week. I'll post updates related to this stuff as they become available.

I do have some news related to one of Futurama's cast members, and it's a pretty dang cool thing which I'm very excited about personally. I'll be posting it on my blog as soon as I confirm some things with my media contact for this project.

from this article:

"Futurama"

Most-watched show in all of TV in its timeslot with Men 18-34

Vs. last summer in the timeslot, Adults 18-49 ratings were up +174%, Adults 18-34 were up +196%, Men 18-34 were up +207% and Men 18-24 were up +283%. Viewership grew +147% to 2.5 million Total Viewers (P2+)

there is no way the show won't be renewed.

Has there been a release date out yet?   Also, I read in Infosphere that the Season 7 finale is called 'Ressurrection'.  Could this be another 'cliffhanger' episode? 

Plus, I heard on Futurama Madhouse, that Billy West confirmed Futurama has been renewed for 3 more seasons!

1. No, but we're guessing it'll be roughly the same time as they started this year.

2. Ressurection will almost certainly not be a cliffhanger episode. It's going to be a three-segment affair with each one using a different style of animation. It'll probably be non-canon.

3. What I think you're referring to is far from confirmed. It's either not true or it's true but being denied by people involved with the show because Fox doesn't want the info out yet.

From the main man himself.


There is some cock and bull story that..... I told my friend Jackie "the
jokeman" Martling months ago that we are doing 3 seasons of new
Futurama.I NEVER said any such thing.
We were at dinner in New York when I got a good news call from Matt and
David that we would be doing two new seasons of Futurama NOT THREE.
He was there when I got the call and spoke about it recently on the radio.
If he said 3,he just misspoke.

Anyway,it was a great time in Atlanta ....and I met a very nice woman to
boot!


Cheers,



Billy

Two seasons is a lot easier to believe than three.

The question is: are these two NEW seasons, in addition to the current two broadcast seasons, or is he simply referring to the two broadcast seasons that are currently under way?

It sounds to me that Billy West means that there are two new seasons on the way, after the current production season has finished airing next summer.  I hope he means two production seasons, but even a single large production season split into two broadcast seasons would be relatively good news.

I think he means, this production season but
broken up in to two parts. So I'm guessing
that no new seasons have been ordered yet.

It sounds to me that Billy West means that there will be two more seasons after the existing episodes from Season six have aired next summer.  I hope that he means two new production seasons, but even one production season split into two broadcast seasons would be okay.

I do not believe that he is referring to the two current broadcast seasons, since he called the phone call a "good news" phone call, suggesting something beyond the information about the existing two broadcast seasons, which he would have known about for quite some time by then.

It really depends on when this phone call took place.  If it was last year, than it must refer to the two current broadcast seasons. If it was within the last several months, than it almost certainly refers to two new seasons.

You're misreading the information.  He's talking about the season we just watched and the one that will air in the future.... ie the one production season that's currently being aired.

We don't know is the answer to that.

There will probably be at least one more production season based on this run's ratings, but it's yet to actually have been ordered (to our knowledge).
