Here's another one!

I'm gonna make the one with all the faces laughing, and then the breezy Hermes coat. Any other requests?

[edit]: Here's another one I thought would be cool while watching. Sequentially it comes before those other two I mentioned, so here it is.



This low-framerate animation style actually makes it quite easy to find these repeatable sequences. I love it!

What is the demand for these things? Do you guys like them? I don't know, but they are fun to make.



I'd love some feedback, or a kindly "knock it off". Either way.

Who is Laura?

Futurama finale ratings:

http://bit.ly/oatxNT

Twice as many people watched Jersey Shore as did Obama's address. Score one for America!

Not bad for Futurama, considering everything else what was going on.

I love the GIFs. This episode is really suited to them, especially the anime segment just because of the animation style. The Cubert/seal one is amazing, and I love the new everyone-laughing one.

Just a great episode. One of the most creative cartoon episodes broadcast on television in a while. I felt that the second segment had to give up a bit too much time for the last part. But that was done in a great way as well. I liked the 2nd part the most due to a fantastic idea behind the story, and a clever take on physics. Most things have already been mentioned, a great end to a very strong last half (or, well... The 'broadcast order' last half).

9/10.

Buddy13, I for one love them. I'm just waiting for a GIF of the crew watching Bender and Fry dance, with Hermes' coat blowing behind him.

I supsect that there hasn't been much response b/c it's Saturday night and astonishingly, some people around here do go out. I'm old and married so.... smile

But please do come up with the one I requested.

I checked Peter Avanzino's Wikipedia page, but there's no middle name listed :-(

"RDS" has to be Rough Draft Studios. And in all seriousness, HJS could very well be for Homer Jay Simpson - the character, not the PEEL member.

I tend to have a bias against these "trilogy"-type things, but maybe I should just abandon that with Futurama (now, Simpsons, on the other hand...). This was excellent. I did think the video game segment needed a more interesting story, at least something to take more advantage of the video game idea. The others really parodied the style and conventions of their animation genres perfectly, but that one didn't have the greatest hook...I would have loved to see them actually go looking for the fish that the Professor found at the bottom of the sea (or whatever it was). But it was still really funny and the animation was spot on, and the same goes even more so for the others. That anime segment was just fantastic.

Hermes didn't really have any good spoken jokes

Dwight wasn't in it at all! 0/10!

Cancelling sarcasm mode ...

Another one would be an episode that entirely focuses on videogames.  One could be shooters like halo, the second could be fantasy/rpg games like the Legend of Zelda mixed in with JRPG and MMORPG.  The third could be platformers like Super Mario, with cutsie references to puzzle games as well.

But don't those first two things look alike? I mean, if you're going to go for variety (which was the real point of the episode), you MUST include Pong ...

That whole anime section must have been a nightmare for the voice actors, having to deliberately do the most authentic terrible voice acting they could muster.

No, I bet they actually enjoyed it.

Am I the only one who thought of H.P. Lovecraft when Fry caused his new Color out of Space? big grin

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Colour_Out_of_Space

Yes.

I'm an HPL fan, and I didn't consider it. Most likely because the Colour Out of Space was a destructive force, not one of beauty.

Well, David "X" Cohen doesn't have a middle name, either.

Some comments that got me riled up:

These was one of the rare moments i would like to see references to pop culture in Futurama, but they manage to screw up this bad?! This is their idea of an anime/ Video game rip-off these days?! My my, I have seen so much better on Family Guy. Fcking Family Guy.

First people complain about the Pop Culture references, and now they want more?! RETARDS.

I'd like to present my hypothesis:

It was "Kajigeru desu" -- the "desu" is the verb "to be" which translates as "it is" so all she said was "It's a kajigger!" :-)

Is Hermes standing by a fan? Cause no one else is affected by the outdoor wind.


So also I noticed the scoring for this episode is pretty high here around 9 and 10, yet the premise for the episode is kind of similar to that of In A Gadda Da Leela where the storyline is not in canon. Do you think people liked this one more because it established itself in the beginning that it was an alternate episode that would not be in canon?

Say what? Since when has that been declared?

I didn't like it because the stupid censor actually forced a sex act and refused to censor it. That doesn't even make sense! No censor in the world would allow something normally not allowed, just to consummate a relationship that was already shown to be based on a falsehood. Or even if it wasn't!

But it was still funny watching them fly around in the invisible ship.

I definitely think that had an impact on me. If the scene with the Galactic Entity had been cut, and maybe even the opening thingies to each part, it would have felt weird.

I liked the voice-over in the following:
   It seems their movements are a form of language. Rather than speaking JENGLISH like us they speak by dancing.

Also, is the transformation of the PE ship into a tank a nod toward Space Battleship Yamato (i.e. representing space vessels as terrestrial craft)?

Don't hate me, Trinity.  I'm just the messenger.

Sure, but he goes by David X. Cohen for the purposes of the show. If I remember right, it's because he had to register with some group and "David Cohen" was already taken, so he added the X because it looked cool.

Also, sort of related to what hobbitboy said, one of my favorite subtle bits of this was the PE ship turning into this tracked tank-like thing. In space. Cos continuous tracks totally work in space.

His full name is "David Samuel Cohen". As there was already a "David S Cohen" in the "Writers Guild of America" (which demanded unique names), he chose "David X Cohen".
He chose the "X" because it sounded more "sci fi", and he expected it to attract attention.

Pretty much completely loved this. Way better than I was expecting, but I didn't much like the Anime section. I'm not fond of Anime anyway so I was kinda expecting this. The other two were brilliant though.

Funtimes! I gave it 9/10.

Alternately: The 'X' makes it sound cool.

"I hope this is the control stick!" Damn, I really enjoyed "In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela" and never felt the need to erase it from canon. It's good, raunchy fun. Not a brilliant episode, but I think it's criticized quite a bit for reasons that I don't entirely agree with. Oh well.

Can you explain it for me? Cuz I really don't get it. Are they trying to point out the hypocrisy of censorship or something? Cuz that could've been done without the whole sex-at-gunpoint thing. It almost seemed rapey, and that's not funny to me. Also, it poops all over Fry and Leela's relationship that was finally getting a start. It was sad.

Yeah. I think it would be a bit strange to have three incredibly similar questions in a row on the what if machine (What if we looked like an old Fleischer cartoon? What if life were like a video game, but not like last time I asked that? And what if life were like anime?).
I think it could have worked if they asked normal questions. For example:

Fry: What if I found the perfect gift for Leela?
Farnsworth: What if I solved the Grand Unified Theory?
Zoidberg: What if Zoidberg had to save the day?

And then worked in some kind of concept of the professor "jazzing up" the machine to make the display of the results more exciting.
