Doesn't show much, the Zoidberg-Professor scene in the pasty has already appeared (extended) as CtF storyboard. Still fun to see animated though. smile

I was confused if it was "Overclockwise" or "Reincarnation" that was written by Ken Keeler (they said it was the finale about a year ago, but then they changed the order and all, and now everyone says "Reincarnation"), so I asked Eric Rogers on Twitter (yes, I'm the new Danny). Reply:

Wasn't Ehasz supposed to be a freelancer on season 6? That's interesting that he wrote two episodes. I wonder now if we'll get more from some of the other writers who returned that way (Lewis Morton and J. Stewart Burns, I believe). Unless he's a staff writer to begin with and A.V. Club just got it wrong. Thanks for the update, Aki.

Wow, just Ehasz for Reincarnation? That must be quite a challenging episode to write on one's own. But his given his track record, it should be good.

Thanks for the interviews, Danny and InfoMan. DXC's explanation of how the writers are learning from their mistakes (and the promise of more cuh-razy sci-fi plots) gives me hope.

In completely irrelevant news: The episode info for "Law and Oracle" (or at least the one given by my cable provider) says "Fry quits his job and becomes a police office." This typo amuses me so. Or at least I'm assuming it's a typo...

Haha, one of the comments/jokes at another forum (the NHC) said something to the effect of "I'm going to be really disappointed if that's a typo." It's from the MSN description, or at least that's where I saw it a few weeks ago.

In fact, here that is: http://tv.msn.com/tv/series-episodes/futurama/?ipp=40

I'm not sure if it has any information we haven't seen elsewhere. The description for "Tip of the Zoidberg" was slight news to me, though.

Josh Weinstein is a freelancer isn't he? He wrote tonight's 'Law and Oracle' as well as 'That Darn Katz!'.

Mike Rowe wrote 'Holiday Craptacular' on his own. It seems to be the new way of doing things with the smaller writing staff.
I'm still hopeful for Reincarnation as Benderama was well written and funny whereas Mike Rowe's track record isn't exactly stellar.

Weinstein's a staffer....you can see his name during the "producer" credits at the beginning of a lot of episodes.

In other news, A.V. Club just interviewed John DiMaggio. Enjoy it, meatbags!

Bender becoming a paparazzi could be really cool. Exploring more of New New York and seeing loads of our favorite background characters snapped on camera.

It'll be interesting to see how the show goes with that decision in mind, I've never really considered that they might've been avoiding similar stories in the past.

Also, what do you suppose he meant by the whole Reincarnation each-segment-ending-with-a-way-that's-unsuitable-for-that-animation comment? My guess is that color is important in the Fleischer ending, fluid movement in the anime one and being able to see details in the video game one... but that's all quite vague, I admit.


I wouldn't be surprised if Calculon has a sizable appearance in this paparazzi episode... although I'd rather not. I feel like we've seen enough Bender / Calculon stories already.

I think it's meaning that an unsuitable ending is one that goes against the clichés for the style. For example, having the video game one end with "GAME OVER. CONTINUE?" would be a suitable and cliché ending.

COHEN: I think this summer’s episodes are really good. Take my biased opinion for it. Because of the production schedule, I think we were going strong during the middle of the year and got back in the groove and a lot of our best episodes fall in this batch of episodes that start of this year. FUTURAMA fans will not be disappointed.


that excites me so.

I am so thrilled about Overclockwise. It sounds epic. I hope it will not disappoint, for I will be sad for days if that is the case. Nay, months.

That reminds me of something I thought about earlier: is there any "serious" Futurama episode that wasn't good? I only hear acclaim about those episodes.

valid point. seriously, what serious futurama episode has ever flopped?

I don't think any of the serious episodes have ever flopped, but I do think some of them hit their mark a bit better than others when it comes to fan opinion. "Jurassic Bark" and "The Luck of the Fryrish" are generally considered gold by everyone, and the same goes for "The Late Philip J. Fry"; "Time Keeps on Slipping" and "Leela's Homeworld" can go either way with fans, it seems.

For my part, I love 'em all (though I am strangely underwhelmed by "Jurassic Bark"), but I'd understand why some people wouldn't want all these emotions getting in the way of their crazy sci-fi comedy.

Sometimes I think we are the same person.

Neat article, DotheBartman. Crazy Bender-centric plots are generally either at the top of my list or at the bottom, so we'll see where this one ends up.

Oh, you!

Here's some news, by the by: looks like "The Late Philip J. Fry" was nominated for the Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program. It's up against The Cleveland Show, Robot Chicken, The Simpsons, and South Park. Seeing as how TLPJF is brilliant and full of time-traveling sci fi goodness (much like "Roswell That Ends Well"), I'm thinking it has a pretty good shot. Of course, I haven't seen any of the other nominees, so...
