Sometimes I think I just read tnuk's posts for his wonderfully creative insults.

Indeed. Delightfully extraneous verbosity right there.

I thought I saw Gopher's avatar blink, said "Nah, couldn't have; I must have imagined it" --- and then saw it again.

So my Mum watches the show Medium, there's an ep where the main character's daughter keeps jumping forward in time, the episode is called "Time Keeps on Slipping". hmpf

It's a lyric from a song.

In 'Futurama's case it was particularly fitting because the song came from the 'Space Jam' soundtrack.

I know, but I'm saying they have like the same titles. It's just 'Slipping' and 'Slippin''.

What a brilliant observation.

No, actually, that's kinda neat. There are a lot of Futurama eps named after other works, yes? Parasites Lost, Godfellas, I'm sure there are more but I am too lazy to go Infosphere it...

I'm talking about the similarity of the plots here, not the titles.

The titles just add to the similarity.

I know, but I'm saying that both shows were most likely referencing that song lyric.

They both have plots about skipping bits of time and probably thought "What shall we we name this episode? It's about time slipping... hmm, what about that song?" and it'd go from there.


South Park and The Simpsons both have episodes called 'Elementary School Musical'. Does that mean foul-play? No. It means that both were referencing 'High School Musical' and happen to have characters who go to elementary school.

I don't think he's calling foul play either, I just think he's observing it.

Yeah, definitely not foul play, but a fun coincidence. I wonder how many episodes of things have the same name. There are thousands of songs with the same name, there must be plenty of other episode-name similarities too.

I've always known "time keeps on slipping" to be a line from "Fly Like an Eagle" by Steve Miller. It is a song from the 1970s. It's a really cool song, actually.

Danny, Medium was also one of the few shows on TV that I watched (cancelled), and I know which episode you're talking about. The time skips were very similar, but the plot and tone was very dark.

I want to go on record as also being Inquisitor Hein. I don't see any disadvantages such a claim might bring with it.

I really want to see an episode where Morbo finally makes good on his threats and his people enslave Earth, only for him to have a change of heart. That'd be awesome. Love to see that in 2012. Could tie-in with the doomsday theme of the year.

Do vaguely recognizable stick figures qualify as "incredibly awesome"?

Has anybody noticed that Season 7 is going to have more Hermes-centered episodes? There's the one where he cuts of his body parts, and now the new episode title "The Six Million Dollar Mon" sounds like another Hermes-centered one.

"The Six Million Dollar Mon" is the episode where he gets his limbs cuts off. Title refers to The Six Million Dollar Man, an old 70s show about an agent with bionic parts.

So, all in all, we've still got one Hermes-centric plot.

I would have preferd "Farewell to arms" (should that have been an abandoned working title). "The Six Million Dollar Mon" is just TOO close to the original for me...

Hm, this means that "Farewell to Arms" could be what I originally thought it was going to be about, the banning/outlawing of weapons.

Then explain the deal with "J-Lo Dolly" and "I Dated a Robot".

Wait, Svip, you're saying Farewell to Arms and Six-Million-Dollar Mon are two different eps, then? Hmm.

If you actually bothered to look through the copyright catalogue as I have, you would notice that "I Dated a Robot" is nowhere to be found, only "J-Lo Dolly".  Though, what is more odd, is that "J-Lo Dolly" is copyrighted twice, but a year apart.  Then again, so are all episodes from season 3, it must be a technicality or something.

The reason, however, is that you are not copyrighting titles, you are copyrighting episodes.  It doesn't matter what the studio ends up naming it, the episode (story line, etc.) is copyrighted and protected before release.

Take "The Futurama Holiday Spectular", it only appears as HOLIDAY VAL-U-PAK in the copyright catalogue.

I doubt they would copyright the same episode so shortly apart under different titles.

I wonder whether season 7 will be the one season so far which has the most Hermes centric episodes?

Isn't "The Six Million Dollar Mon" the only Hermes' centered plot we know of at the moment? hmpf

I can't say I care for the new title. 

But I'm glad they are using Hermes more.  I can't say he's a character I really like, but he deserves more screentime.   

But what I really want is more Amy centric episodes, especially ones that don't end up becoming about her and Kif.   Sure they have good episodes, but the other sides of her personality should be explored more. More Plucky Girl Genius Amy please.  I would also like to see an episode that shows more of her pudgy childhood on Mars with her hilariously emotionally abusive parents.
