Here's some news that caught my attention. Mainly this one note towards the bottom.

“We have a presidential election coming up, so we’ll probably need another Richard Nixon episode,” he said. “He’ll be running as the liberal candidate."

I'm confused by this... is Nixon going to run as a liberal in 3012?

That's odd. I'm more hyped about what they say of Overclockwise though:
Quote
In another clever episode, previewed below, Bender massively increases his processing speed, takes on tremendous powers of computation, improves himself at an exponential rate and “passes the existential singularity and the concerns of mankind,” said Cohen.

“It’s pretty deep, but there are also a lot of flaming belches,” he said. “We pull you in with the mathematical theorems, and we keep you with the flaming belches.”

Saw the clip, I can't really make my mind up until I see what preceeds it. May be a fun concept. I'm just not a fan of 'Bender-centric' episodes. And two in a row,  hmpf

I'm not surprised there's a lot of Bender in the start of the season. He is a beloved character, especially among the more casual fans. This season overall seems to be just as mixed as previous ones though.

I think the point is he has to be "liberal candidate" in comparision  to his oponent.

Ironically, the real-life Nixon actually was fairly liberal on most policy issues -- in fact he would be considered to be generally to the left of Obama today.  Don't forget that he was the president who created the Environmental Protection Agency and passed the Clean Air Act (as part of the most sweeping environmental legislation agenda of ANY president of the USA), introduced a huge mass of civil liberties legislation, second only to Lyndon Johnson's record, and totally reformed the government's relationship with Native Americans.  Not to mention that he advocated (and almost succeeded in passing) a system of universal health care.

Not that I am a fan of Richard Nixon.  But the general public expectations of the time were far to the left of what we see in the USA today, and Nixon was working within that environment.

Nixon was actually a pretty damn effective President. It's just a shame he was also paranoid and unscrupulous. If he'd been a little less of either, he might be remembered more fondly by Americans today.

I want to see him in a three-party race against Zombie Obama and Joe Biden's disembodied brain, as well as a hologrammatic simulation of Sarah Palin (complete with forehead "H") and her running mate, Mitt Romney's toupée.

I think more what will happen is that he's run out of the increasingly-conservative Republican Party by some Tea Party analogy and runs as a third party candidate. Or goes through classic Futurama Nixonian means to get rid of the far right wing candidat.e

For American viewers, if you watch full episodes of The Daily Show and Colbert Report online right now, they're running a "Thurs-Dimension" Futurama/Ugly Americans promo before them. The Futurama parts are brief, but include:


(^This is already seen in one of the storyboards)

as well as:


Nothing huge, but nice little random clips to see.

That may be what gives him the win. Or a funny storyline. Or most probably, nothing whatsoever. tongue

I wonder what Nixon's new bofy will be for this election? He's used that big one twice. Although I guess it could be an identical one.

And Eleven is showing Benderama now, with Neutopia next week.

Yeah, I don't think I'll be tuning into Eleven next week. I'm finding it hard with the ad breaks which is kind of pathetic but I've been watching Futurama on DVDs and online for like, 2 years now.

I know you're kidding, but I'm worried about this. Wouldn't surprise me if they actually tried to make fun of (subtly or directly) at any of the candidates, making the episode too topical for subsequent views. I don't mind them parodying the whole birther conspiracy, because it can be viewed without having the background scope, but doing the actual candidates? Please, no.

Of course I'm kidding. Can you imagine anything owned by Mitt Romney only a heartbeat away from the Presidency?

Can we please confirm the name of tomorrow's ep? Is it Ghost in the Machines, Ghosts in the Machine or Ghosts in the Machines?

I'm going with Ghosts in the Machines, cause that's what the preview pics said on the Countdown. The Infosphere says Ghost in the Machines. hmpf

Oh crap, I had only seen "Ghost in the Machines", but you are correct, released pictures say differently.

Is there anything except for the Infosphere that argues for the alternate "Ghost in the Machines"?

*moves the Infosphere article to its proper place*

edit: According to this the title is "Ghost in the Machines", and that is the source given on the Infosphere. That could just as well be Matt Tobey missing an S, though.

edit 2: MSN also goes with Ghost. link.

Ghosts in the Machines is more official, but more than one un-official source states that it's Ghost in the Machines... confused

Given what we know, I don't see any reason it wouldn't air September 8th. The experiment of separating a single episode from the entire season failed last year with a holiday special being aired for the holidays, imagine how it would go for something not holiday themed.

David X Cohen mentioned that Reincarnation might air on the same night as Overclockwise as another double-bill like the Neutopia/Benderama opener in an interview, but he also said it might not...

Sounded to me like he had no clue whatsoever, and like he had no control at all over it (I guess it's all up to Comedy Central). So, yeah, I won't take DXC's word for anything concerning the broadcast order.

Now that's an odd pic.

Hey, it seems like "Ghost in the Machines" is the official title after all.
