Since Futurama has been renewed until 2013, what are some things you _don't_ want to see happen in Futurama? There's so many threads about what people want to see, how about a thread about what people don't want to see?
Wrongfully accused of a crime and has to go to prison plot.
They already kind of did that in "Insane in the Mainframe." It does seem unnecessary for characters to be wrongfully accused when you have Bender actually commiting crimes though.
A Thief of Baghdad plot.
Stealing an entire city does seem a bit far-fetched, even for Futurama
A Sinbad Parody. (The sailor, Not the comedian)
So you do want a parody of the comedian then?
A Spoof of a childish fairy tale such as The Pied Piper or Jack and the Beanstalk.
That could actually work for a AOI story, or even a normal episode depending on how it was handled.
THe characters get turned into animals by some evil wizard.
Sure, blame the wizards.
Damsel-in-distress plot, especially since none of the girls are supposed to be any.
They already did that with Amy, in "Where the Buggalo Roam."
Male dominated planet plot.
Aside from Leela being indignant about it, I'm not sure how much of a plot there would be, and we pretty much already saw that in "Raging Bender."
Wimpifing of tough characters and toughening of wimpy characters.
There aren't really any tough characters aside from Leela. As for toughening of wimpy characters, we already saw that with Fry in "Parasites Lost" and "Less Than Hero."
A Magic Carpet plot where a character gets sold into slavery.
What the hell are you even talking about?
Fry gets cloned and his clones terrorize everyone.Futurama
isn't The Simpsons
. Also, they already kind of did that with the Lucy Liubots in "I Dated a Robot."
A Super Mario spoof!
What would that even entail? The characters eating mushrooms and stomping on turtles?
A Go-Kart race where Fry wins.
I suppose you'd rather see a go-kart race where Fry loses? Because you mighty spacemen of the future are so much better at go-kart racing than us idiotic slobs from the twentieth century.
A Lifetime Movie scenario.
You do realize that Futurama
is a half-hour cartoon sitcom, right?
A King Kong plot where a female character gets carried away by a huge monster.
(Will Fry Am The EggMan be like this?)
So you'd like to see a male character get carried away by a huge monster instead?
Everyone is tied to a bomb, and Fry is the only one who can save them.
That would pretty much be the same as the end of "Insane in the Mainframe" except that instead of being tied to a bomb, everyone was tied up by a knife-wielding maniac.
Anyone else care to put in their 2 cents?
Your ideas are bad, and you should feel bad.
