No?  It reveals many things.  That the first scene The Crushinator appeared in was scene 238.  That it was confirmed on 2 September 1998.  I find this to be the most interesting model paper to be released by now.

I still can't wait for "All the President's Heads"--it seems like it will be most pleasingly trippy.

It also reveals that Fry can fit inside the Crushinator.

Time traveling is, like, the only science fiction conceit that I really enjoy. I suppose that makes me somewhat of a fraud. tongue

I will say that I don't care for the writers' hypocrisy, and the violation of their own never-time-travel rule over and over, but I do think that Roswell and TLPJF are two of the series' best episodes, and BBS is certainly not bad (at least not because of the time travel angle; the not-being-particularly-funny angle does lose it a few points).

Mobius Dick sounds like it might be a visual feast.

"Yo Leela Leela" has me worried. I have a feeling this could be another "A Leela of her Own" or "That's Lobstertainment!", two of my least favourite episodes. I sincerely hope I'm mistaken.

I also think that the show has come to terms with its perspective on time travel.  They originally did not want to meddle with it, for fear that they would destroy a reasonable telling of events and retcon the whole series.  I think that with companion, totalnerduk's Circular Time Theory, the series has averted this possibility.

If Mobius Dick has anything to do with time travel (they do call the whale 4th-dimensional and that usually means time is involved), won't it be a little strange to have two time-based stories in a row?

Oh sweet, I'm 50-50 on the time travel because, it's my favourite thing in Futurama, I loved BBS, RTEW and TWOF, but I think the writer's are running out of ideas if they keep coming back to it again and again.

Like how many ways can they keep coming back to it? The Time Code was erased, going back to Roswell was kind of by chance and the Brain Spawn sent Fry back to 1999, but now they are trapped in the Infosphere in an Alternate Universe. The only thing left is the Forward Time Machine, but that would require going round the Universe again to go 'back' in time. hmpf

I kind of think that "All the Presidents' Heads" is less about time travel and more about head-licking-induced hallucinations. Not so much physical time travel as mental time travel...if that makes sense. I could be wrong.

And I don't think "Mobius Dick" is necessarily a time travel episode. The formerly de facto series finale, "Overclockwise", is supposed to be a time travel episode, though, isn't it?

My worries exactly. But it actually might be opurtunity to do a cute and funny  self-parody.

I guess now we are missing only plots of "Fry am the eggman" , "Cold warriors" and "Overclockwise".

Mobius Dick is supposed to be about a whale.  Maybe a Moby Dick scenario.  And Overclockwise is _not_ the series finale!  Also, I'm hoping Yo Leela Leela is like that Blake Edwards movie S.O.B.  Where Leela is on a kids show that fails and the PE Crew want her to do something more adult and she becomes a hit!  That's what I'm hoping it's about. 

Check out that movie S.O.B.!  It's really funny!

The head licking was what we were told at the time, so that's all the Infosphere knew of it. It may not happen, but we haven't been told it won't.

Mobius Dick won't be time travel there are too many mathematicians involved for this to not be hypercube-type 4D. Hyperwhale? A cluster of whales folding in on themselves constantly sound gross...

And I don't think "Mobius Dick" is necessarily a time travel episode. The formerly de facto series finale, "Overclockwise", is supposed to be a time travel episode, though, isn't it?

On "All the Presidents' Heads": It's apparently both. This Digital Spy post has DXC talk about the head licking sending the crew on trips, while this AV Club interview has Cohen confirm that the head licking somehow ties into actual time travel (the relevant stuff is near the end). I'm not sure how, but it's said by the man himself.

On "Mobius Dick": I don't think the episode will involve the crew time traveling so much as the whale will and the crew will deal with its actions linearly while the whale pops in and out chaotically (so, if they kill it, that might happen like halfway through while the final time they meet it will be like the third time it meets them). I base all that on trying to guess what crazy direction the writers take a story about a 4th-dimensional (what do they mean by that?) space whale.

On "Clockwise": We have no idea what that episode's about. The time travel stuff you're thinking about was conjecture by Louiswuenator off an idea by Mongo.

Mobius Dick won't be time travel there are too many mathematicians involved for this to not be hypercube-type 4D. Hyperwhale? A cluster of whales folding in on themselves constantly sound gross...

Now that's the kind of crazy I'm talking about! The possibility of a plot like that is why this one is my most anticipated.

P.S. Thanks for explaining what they might mean by "4th-dimensional". That's certainly an interesting way to take it.

We know Overclockwise WON'T be the series finale, but it was written as if it was one, lust like The Devils Hand are Idle Playthings and Into the Wild Green Yonder, so it should be kind of like those. When they don't know if they'll be coming back, they make a ending-on-a-high-note-maybe-finale episode.

Anyway, it should be really good at least!

I never really found "A Leela of Her Own" to be as bad as people say it is, but I'm also worried about "Yo Leela Leela". If it's the next episode after "Silence of the Clamps", I expect Comedy Central to post some pictures from it soon, maybe tomorrow.

Well I'll admit I don't dislike the entire episode, but the ending really leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I do fear "Yo Leela Leela" could have a similar ending that portrays her in a similar light. hmpf
