I don't think Leela will be worrying about her biological clock anytime soon.  Mom managed to remain fertile into her triple digits, it seems, depending how old she and her sons are.

Good point, Goldy.
I suppose that wouldn't really be as much a concern in the future. Not to mention, it would probably be common to store eggs and sperm cryogenically in case. tongue

If you don't watch it you can leave PEEL right now. What kind of a Futurama fan hasn't seen every ep/movie, despite how bad it may be? no no

It's only one episode. And by the sounds of it, I am not really missing anything.
Fine..I'll go watch it within the next couple of days. I was going to save it for Christmas time..but maybe that wouldn't be a good idea as it may ruin my Christmas holiday.

Plus I wouldn't put it past Mom to blackmail her maid into being a surrogate.  "You carry my future minions/main shareholders to full term Consuela, and I won't have some hobo corpses planted in that revolting squalid little pit you call your apartment.  Do we have a deal you little skank?"

I'm fairly sure you can avoid that. It's the only episode that I haven't downloaded acquired yet. Pretty terrible and pretty unfunny.  wink

As we know, the first episode of production season 7 will be the one in which Bender gets a soda machine pregnant. There's plenty of potential for Fry/Leela shippy-ness, there. Leela feeling a bit broody and making Fry scared of commitment or the same thing with the roles reversed? It's a good opportunity for them to reflect on their future as a couple.

Good point. Props to the writers if they decide not to cop out on Fry and Leela's relationship at the start of season seven; that parallel you draw between the confirmed Bender story and the speculative subplot could make for an interesting episode.

I'm wondering how close the storyline will be to Futurama Comic #11. If it is similar I don't mind because I love that comic. In fact that comic is one of the main reasons Iím so excited for the ep, because the potential has been proved...

I somehow got the impression season 6 was also a test run how to deal with it:
6a) Mostly a couple wise interpretation
6b) Mostly a non-couple wise interpretation (so far)
After the end of both seasons, the future treatment/writing might be based
on this comparison.

"Considering their future together" was mentioned as a subplot in "Overclockwise" by David x. Cohen in an interview. Just going on with the same thing in next seasons first episode...hm...dunno...

I was searching the US Copyright catalogue (to check for any new titles) and this new episode is not listed as "The Boots and the Bees". It's listed as "The Bots and the Bees."

I'm inclined to think that Slurmed made a typo and this will be the episode where Bender gets the Soda Machine pregnant. It'll most likely be 7ACV01, with "Farewell to Arms" as 7ACV02. (This is all speculation, but it seems pretty logical.)

Just so you know; you cannot link to pages on the US copyright catalogue.  Yes, I know; it sucks.  But you are correct.

I like the title a lot now, the premise I'm not so sure about. It's interesting and could turn out well, but has the potential to suck more than a hooker on rent day...

Also, this was put on the 'Cold Warriors' page on the Infosphere:

I don't love that they're doing it, but of all the comic plots that the show could borrow from, "The Cure for the Common Clod" is one of the best choices. And didn't "Benderama" borrow a bit from issue fourteen of the comics, what with all the Benders? The way I see it, there are only so many stories out there, and as long as they aren't out-and-out animating the preexisting comics, but are instead composing new stories that may share some plot details, it's not a big deal.

I've never read it either, actually (though I share in your desire to do so), but I have a vague notion of the plot from looking it up on the Infosphere. At any rate, it seems like there are a few similarities, but it doesn't really take away from my enjoyment of "Benderama." The writers have said that the comics and the series are two separate entities, so I'm able to appreciate and evaluate them as such. Though, if the two media have to borrow from one another, I would definitely prefer that the comics be derivative of the series, and not the other way around.

I remember buying Comic #14 just days after it came out in America (the shop I got it from import the American ones). Of course that was some years ago, so many years in fact that I didn't draw the comparison to it from Benderama. That is a good point you've raised there though. I still have the comic in my closet and from what I remember it was a good issue, but most of the low teens were though. It couldn't have been as good as issue #11 though because even I instantly thought of that when I first saw the ep synopsis for Cold Warriors...

I don't mind them using Comic ideas if they're good ones, but only if they would also work in an episode format as well which I think this will. I remember thinking when I read it how much I'd have loved to see it as an ep. Not literally exactly the same, but with the same basic foundations. I hope this ep doesn't disappoint, because it has a lot to live up to. Possibly the best Futurama Comic of the lot (out of the ones I've read) IMO...

I think that is the Professors version of the 'Juice-A-Matic 4000'.

...or quite possibly a 'Verion T Disruptor'.

I haven't read either of the comics but I'm not really perturbed by them recycling comic ideas into episode ideas, especially if Cold Warriors turns out to be as good as it is currently looking. I had actually heard about the plot of TCFTCC, among several other early comics, from perusing the Infosphere before 6B came out and thought it sounded interesting so bring it on. I've been looking forward to this one for a while and the pictures on this thread are just making me happier.

I couldn't care less about this having a similar plot to the comic. The comic is one of the best comics, but it can't hold a candle to even the worst episode of the TV show.
I don't care about the comics and it's a good story concept that I'd like to see told as part of the canon, television universe.

Leela: It's only a splinter!  Can't we just use a tweezer?
Professor: NO!  Besides, no one has made a pair of tweezers in the last 500 years!
Leela: That's not true, i have one in my pocket! I bought it this morning!
Professor: Oh good, we can use it to pick the sellable parts out of the Fry slurry  when it pours into this handy bucket.

Issue #11 is far better written than Holiday Craptacular, that's for sure hmpf...
