I don't think TSoTC score is that bad to be honest.

Speaking of which, I noticed something about both the episodes that Eric Rogers has written (that we've seen).

Anthology of Interest I (part 1) and the Silence of the Clamps both have one thing in common: Zoidberg being an unreal absolute legend. If this continues for 7ACV05, 13, an 17, then I think that'd be great. smile

As long as it's not overdone, because when it's on the ball, it's classic. But when it's not, well, it's roadkill...hmpf

How can Zoidberg being excellent possibly be overkill? It might be a problem if it were a really minor character like Fatbot or something, but this is Zoidberg we're talking about.

I always got a sense that Zoidberg being awesome in 'The Silence of the Clamps' was pretty much Eric Rogers' doing. And that was one of the few aspects of that episode that I really enjoyed.

Now that you've pointed out that his segment in 'Anthology of Interest I' also had a lot of kick-ass Zoidy content, I'm even more sure that it's his doing.

So yes, here's hoping for more of it!

What I'm saying is that he can be overdone, and even though it hasn't really happened yet, I'm sure that it will eventually...

Nah, it won't.

There was only one Zoidberg A-Plot in Season 6, and a couple of B-Plots. That isn't anywhere close to being overdone.

Hell, even Amy's closer to that stage than Zoidberg is.

I like your faith, UrL. It's weird how random Zoidberg moments can be, even when we barely saw him or heard him speak the whole episode. For example, in TRoAE, Hermes says: "You still don't have your own building, or conference table, or one of those!". (Points at Zoidy who responds: "Hello.") laff

My favourite Zoidberg moment from the entire series is from the end of A Clockwork Origin:

Farnsworth: Then it's settled. Finally, a world in which I am happy to raise my son!
Zoidberg: Good, cause I'm sick of him!
[Closing Credits.]
Zoidberg: [Over credits.] I'm serious. He's a terrible person.

That was probably the best subplot in the series...

The Bender, Fry, and Leela subplot where they make beer in TRoAE is pretty funny too! laff "Hush little brew-ski, don't you leak. Momma wants to drink for at least a week." laff

Yes but it seems like it is getting used a little too much... What happened to the Professor (and sometimes Hermes) walking in on the crew watching TV and telling them they have to make a delivery? Or the crew repairing the ship and telling them there?

I'd like to see an episode that starts out in the Angry Dome. (yelling at each other, etc)

I wouldn't be too into that.

The Angry Dome was a throw-away joke - one of my favourites in the entire run of the show, in fact - and seeing it return would cheapen the impact of that gag somehow. It'd feel a bit fan-wanky.

I re-used the Angry Dome in a short Futurama Comic strip I did many moons ago. It was a good concept, but I agree that perhaps it's best left to rest now...

I now have high hopes for Dr Zoidberg in Season 7 if the theories above are anything to go by!...

I'm so excited for TBaTB! I have a feeling it could be one of the best best season premiers ever. It just sounds so deeply promising! big grin

Here, here! I'm looking forward to it as well. I have a feeling that Season 7 will have a good start.

Now let's just hope they air them in the right order, or I can kiss that feeling goodbye.  shifty

Which doesn't make the episode worse by the way...

If it means the episodes are produced in greater quality, then I certainly don't mind the deleted scenes being uncoloured.

I'm quite glad they didn't include that in the final show. No need for crude humor that's been done before ("jacking on" in 1ACV09 Hell Is Other Robots). On a similar note, it kinda nostalgically upsets me that scenes like Raging Bender's famous deleted scene featuring Mom would now easily make the show. I always loved the wonderment of finding these gems on the DVD sets and then referencing the hell out of them on PEEL (since nobody else in the real world or internet would be likely to have seen these scenes).


Also, this review of the Volume Six set is interesting just because it includes The Silence of the Clamps and Yo Leela Leela as highlights of the season. Clamps, maybe, but YLL?! Really?

That is particularly strange. I guess the episode isn't as unpopular as I thought it was.

Really? Then he must be correct. In fact, from reading that review, my opinion of YLL is completely changed! I'm now going to go watch it 20 times, because thanks to that review, it's my new favourite episode!

If by that you mean that "Yo Leela Leela" is a better episode than "The Silence of the Clamps," I agree wholeheartedly. I get that YLL is cutesy and pop-culture-y and certainly not one of Leela's shining moments...but, like, at least it has a plot that's actually worth something. What bothers me most about "The Silence of the Clamps" (in addition to not finding it all that funny) is that the second half of the episode is devoted to the crew trying to prove that a robot who is clearly not Bender is actually Bender, and wants us to in some way emotionally invest in a story that ultimately has no bearing on the lives of any of the main characters. It's just such a waste.
