American college isn't really the same as in the UK, though.

American college is like British university - although you do have universities in the states as well, I believe.

British college is just like the last couple of years of American high school. To the point that many people opt for "sixth form colleges" which are basically extensions of their high schools.

For university? It depends on where you live and where you want to go to study. I'd say the vast majority of people move out and live in some form of student accomodation / house with friends whilst they're at university, but there's a minority that go to university close to home and don't move out.

COLLEGE AT 15?! WE have to be 18 to register for college or have sex! LUCKY...

That's not really true if you happen to skip grades or whatever. I knew a 16 and 17-year-old (granted, the latter turned 18 a few weeks into the year) my freshman year of college. (Also: consent laws vary by state. It is generally 18 for two adults, but two teenagers of lower ages can also legally consent with each other depending on their exact ages.)

Eric tweets:

Spying on @aimeekitty and the Rough Draft crew at their new studio. I'll do anything for free tacos. #futurama #roughdraftstudios

And Aimee tweets:

All the #futurama writers and folk are visiting our studio today! We screened Frank's ep (really cute!) and ate tacos. :3

Notice the "really cute!", I think we're gonna be getting more Nibbler! Or something along those lines. tongue

She might be talking about a Fry/Leela romance, too.

Or something else entirely.

Did Frank write The Bots and The Bees, cause Aimee told me that was supposed to be cute. But remember how Frank's last cute episode turned out... hmpf (YLL)

I assumed it was Frank Marino, but if she meant Frank Welker, it'd make more sense for it to be a Nibbler episode. But yeah, the way she referred to it as "his" episode, makes it sound like she meant the director to me.

Frank's a director, not a writer by the way SGB.

Don't get your hopes up. It's more than likely that she was referring to Frank Marino. Welker doesn't "own" any episode.

Nah, probably Welker because Marino is only the director. I can't believe Horsted wrote YLL, I like him! frown

Only the director?

You realise that it's far more likely she'd be refering to Frank Marino when she says "Frank's episode" because he's the director, right?

I was never quite sure what the directors would do with an animated show anyway...

Listen to some commentaries, then.

In context - one animator talking about a colleague - it's pretty obvious she's talking Marino.

Don't let Brad Bird hear you say that or you'll be in for a directorial ass-kicking.

There's no real difference. They direct it. What do you think a director does? They oversee the product, essentially steering the metaphorical ship that is the people working below them to the figurative destination that is the finished product.

I hope you realise that a director on live-action TV doesn't pick up the camera and film everything himself. They have directors of photography, cameramen, lighting technicians and so forth. With animation, you replace these with the different types of animators you're going to use and everything else a director does (working with actors, overseeing music composition, etc) remains exactly the same.

I'm positive that "Viva Mars Vegas" is going to be obviously  based around Amy. Anyone else agree?

I wouldn't mind... although that's some pretty wild speculation there.
Also SGB, your comment makes no sense.

There is no way of telling whether or not "Viva Mars Vegas" will be about Amy, ITWGY was set mostly on Mars at the start and Amy was barely the focus.

True, but it is very likely an episode about Amy and her parents. It could focus on other characters, I admit, but it's most likely Amy-centered.
