It's kind-of considered as a sequel or follow up to Proposition Infinity, regarding Bender's mortality. wink

I guess you mean Lethal Inspection.

Is it? Have the crew mentioned that or are you just assuming?

Oh yeah sorry, I always get confused between those two eps for some reason. hmpf

And it was mentioned on PEEL a few weeks ago when stuff was being released for it on the Countdown. wink

Ghost In The Machines is really twisting my tongue! I'm thinking and thinking if this may be a good episode or just another crappy one! tongue Benders Death! Ghost Bender! I just dont know............It may either be a classic or another "Neutopia" kind of episode.

I'm on the same track, I think it's either amazing or sucky. It feels like it could be pretty emotional, I just hope they do it in a good way and not out of character-y ("So, Bender's dead, now what?").

I tried to form a dicussion on whether or not it really was the Galactic Entity in that talk page, but I never got a reply. I'm of the opinion that it's more logical that the "come into the light" was a joke, and that it just shared voice with the Galactic Entity by sheer chance. What opinion do you guys have?

New Futurama is about to kick off in Australia. Had I been checking advance guides I'd have seen claims of Silence of the Clamps this week, Mobius Dick next week. More current guides list Benderama as being first cab off the rank. Given the 8pm timeslot, and certain scenes in Neutopia, I'm not too surprised.

So, to recap, if you're in Australia and haven't downloaded the episodes; Benderama is on 11 at 8 this Wednesday the 29th.

I'll record it just in case it is a different episode, not that there's much chance of that.

Huh, I haven't seen that information anywhere around, I just saw that broadcast season 7 was to begin January 12. Do you have a source, Quolnok?

My 11 listing says "All New Futurama (Season Premier)" but the episode description is the synopsis for Rebirth (which has already aired on 11 and is therefore neither all new nor a premier). confused

http://www.tvtonight.com.au/advance-guides shows Clamps and Mobius

http://www.yourtv.com.au/guide/wed/ shows Benderama as does the digital guide beamed into my PS3 by channel 11, so I'd say the advance guides info was based on what 11 thought Comedy Central would show first, but that info is outdated.

I was wondering about this. I imagine it was written as a joke unrelated to the God entity, but then some of the crew/writers will have jumped in to give it a bit of continuity. I think it is meant to be the God entity as that's pretty much established as the God of the world of Futurama now. But to be honest, it's anyone's guess as to what they intended.

I don't really see a great relation though. The Galactic Entity was obviously a deistic god if any, while this "god" (or joke or whatever) was the good old typical person god that cared about Bender dying. The Galactic Entity was also unaware of his power, it seems, and an afterlife which he controlled (the stepping into the light) was never mentioned either.

I'm incredibly annoyed. I stumbled upon a site the other day with a whole slew of nice new character promo images that I've never seen anywhere else, and like the fool I am, I forgot to bookmark it. I can't for the life of me think what the site was. I'm so annoyed, since it had updated images for the likes of Kif and Mom (similar to the old ones, but prettied up a bit). It would have been nice to share... frown

Has anyone here come across a site featuring this?

I found some on Eleven's site a while ago, they're on the Infosphere now. They didn't have Mom or Kif though.

Guys, I spent quite some time on splitting the review thread to stop it from going off-topic. And the next thing I see is y'all swirling around the news thread?

Please keep this news related!

not targeted at the posts just above me but at the posts I just split and merged with the "everything bad" thread

Regarding "the Entity," I'm pretty sure it was just a joke and the reason the voices are similar is because that's the stock voice that Billy West(?) uses whenever a script calls for a god-like voice. I doubt it's more complicated than that. A lot of one-time or bit characters sound similar to each other because it's the same few voice actors all the time (incredibly versatile though they may be).

Also, for any meatbags who care, a clip for Ghost in the Machines is up:


(Spoilered just because the title of the clip might give something away.)

I thought it was a little lame that


That said, I thought the taking-off-hat joke was kind of funny. Also, I'm assuming the clip is from the end of the first act, since

Second! The Professor being upset about Fry not getting it was hilarious.

As for Fry/Leela, I think they just still haven't been established as a couple or anything yet.

Just in terms of larger story structure, it would make sense if the whole Fry/Leela issue wasn't resolved until


This would give season 6 a larger "arc" even if it didn't happen to run through most of the episodes. Most of the time, in the episodes we've seen already, the status quo appears to be more or less the same as it was pre-season 6 (hence such throwaway lines), but doing it this way would make the whole season feel grander and more significant, and make the finale more interesting.

In any case, this episode looks so, so good.

Methinks the writers are aware of shippers feelings and are trolling, since they know only shippers would freak over lines like the one in the clip.

Although I'm a convert to anti-shipping, I have to say the anger in these comments has me a little worried. Then again, anything that keeps the will-they-won't-they status quo is fine with me. As I'm not reading spoilers, I guess I'll have to wait until Thursday to see what all the fuss is really about!
