Has anyone ever actually asked their contact(s) on the Futurame production team for a list of episode titles with production codes?  It might be that simple.

I don't think they're allowed to give away info like that...

I don't know, we do have most of the titles from 7A after all (11 out of 13 with one additional 'working title'), just not which title goes with which production code.  I cannot see what damage would be done by releasing that info, surely it's work the effort of asking?

I would, but I have no credibility with Eric Rogers, since I have never interacted with him before.  If somebody who had asked questions before were to ask, they would have a higher chance of getting a positive answer.

Episode titles below:

31st Century Fox
Blue Munda (working title)
Decision 3012
Fun on a Bun
Naturama
Near-Death Wish
The Butterjunk Effect
The Thief of Baghead
Viva Mars Vegas

I'm sure it won't be long before we're informed of the production codes.

I believe he has chosen to not answer, as I told him that if he is not allowed or doesn't want to answer, then he doesn't [Edit:have] to.

then he doesn't has to.



Also, EXCITEMENT! Eric:

We just saw 1st full-color animation for #futurama's season 7 premiere episode. Un. Be. Lievable. Continually stunned by #roughdraft's work

And OH WOW, check out this from Maurice LaMarche:

Our show, Futurama, just passed 18 million Facebook "Likes". S'pretty good. #Futurama #facebooklikes

Another slightly Futurama related tweet from Eric:

Two workdays in a row that ran almost 12 hours long?! What the hell is this, a NORMAL Hollywood show? #goinghome #winotime

I asked Eric if 7ACV01 would have a lot of 3D (since he said Rough Draft did a great job with the animation), he said:

I think not, but you will still be thrilled, my man.

Aimee:

Screened the full color, fully animated #futurama show #701 ( 1st show of new season) on the lot today! Lots of yays! Can't wait 4 it 2 air!

I couldn't go, I have too much work to do on show #714 and the driving is long to the lot, but I watched it here and it really is lovely!

Oh, and a rare Futurama related tweet from Katey Sagal:

Voicing Leela today.. Gangs all here. B West,J DiMaggio,d Hermann Etc.etc. Love the one eyed purple hair of her Futurama Rocks!

Eric Rogers added to her tweet with:

and it's my episode she's recording!

and

As always, you kicked ass at the read -- knock it out of the park at the record too!

Reading all of this is getting my pumped! It's always good when a shows staff is enthusiastic about what they're doing, and this time even Katey Sagal! Of course, it doesn't always mean it will definitely be good, but it's certainly an encouraging sign. Now I just hope that 7ACV01 is the first episode to air and that Comedy Central doesn't decide to screw up the broadcasting order again...

I asked Eric what's his fave ep(s) from 7ACV01 to 7ACV13, he said:

it's either 7acv1, 2, or 11.

Not much info, but there you go.

Now we know what to look out for. I would expect him to say 8 though, because he said it was really epic, but oh well.

I have a good feeling for this season! But I'm gonna stick to The Simpsons in the offseason. I'm collecting the first 9 seasons. I hope that'll get me through!

#futurama doubles viewership in syndication; hope @ComedyCentral is paying attention; fans are out there but show must be promoted in June.

That's awesome news. It means the show's 8th production season is something more of a safe bet, right? Obviously we'll have to wait and see how season 7 does, but still. Woo!

13 episodes a year isn't drastically different to what we got when the show was on Fox with their awful broadcast seasons.

Hopefully, the re-runs seem to get more viewers than the new eps, but they only started to air the syndicated versions after Reincarnation right? This could really help Season 7. big grin

I'd just love for Comedy Central to be comfortable enough with the show to greenlight more than one season at once so that they don't have to keep shutting down production and then opening it up again. It can't be good for the show from a creative stand-point.

I suppose that's part of what these broadcast/production season splits are about, but still.

Their tweets sound like they're trying too hard to connect with the show, but they seem to have a good relationship.

They respect them, but they have started to worry me with their non-broadcast airing order. Fox aired Futurama Season One in broadcast order. I think they may have aired Season Two in broadcast order too, but then it all went to pot. Comedy Central aired 6A in broadcast order, but have now chosen the retarded Fox-model for airing eps. That is a slight concern...

I can sort of empathise with them though... I know I wouldn't want to use 'The Silence of the Clamps' to open a season.

That doesn't really matter does it? I figured that the time-slot would be the important thing.

It does matter, because for example when Fox chose this approach, our introduction to Dwight was AOI II, when we had no knowledge of his character. It should have been The Route of all Evil, then we would have got to know Dwight, but instead we had no clue about his character and they aired that much later...

The point is, there are certain things within the Futurama timeline which are meant to be introduced in sequence, and when the airing order is erratically chosen by a stupid TV network who thinks they know better, they start to screw it up...

Now this leads me onto Cartoon Networks retarded airing order of 6B. It does matter. People were complaining about things in their reviews brought about due to the episode airing order. Examples such as a certain character being the focus of two episodes in a row that weren't meant to be aired in a row. The potential problems like Fry and Leela's relationship being all over the place because episodes are being aired out of order, and things may have happened in their relationship which we aren't aware of because they were skipped, and then we find out later...

Then there could be a load of Scruffy appearances all in a row, but this again being because they coincidentally got aired out of order together. Lots of montages in a row. Other problems like similar types of story airing back to back when they weren't intended to can be. Some actual media review sites even criticised episodes of 6B simply because they were too stupid to realise that they weren't aired in production order. Such follies pertain when such stupid decisions are made...

Then there is the bigger picture, not just the airing order itself, but the pattern I was pointing out. The pattern of Cartoon Network following a similar approach to what Fox did, so this could just be the first idea of theirs to follow in similar footsteps. There could be others, timeslot could be one of them, but I sincerely hope not, and at this stage I doubt it. I'm just saying that my confidence has had its feathers slightly ruffled due to their approach to airing 6B...

Let's just hope they don't make the same mistake they made last year. Choosing to have Neutopia as the season opener was a very, very bad idea. At the very least, they should've swapped Benderama and Neutopia around.
