I would love to see somebody make a picture of Fry and Bender as Finn and Jake.

I've seen like 3 of those...

2 of them are here, image results 1 and 4... tongue

I think you said that like it was so obvious. Your avatar is even rolling its eyes at me.

EDIT: Top of the thread dance!

m saying today. We'll have to find out later, but today is actually 50 days away.

As previously predicted, the countdown did indeed start off today, with a clip from "The Bots and the Bees". It's basically the finalized, color version of the preview from the Volume 6 disc, but still interesting to see nonetheless.

I liked it. Not much going on there, content-wise, but I don't mean that as criticism. It was a cute clip, and though I'm a little leery of the Bender-sires-a-son concept, I'm willing to keep an open mind.

In any event, I'm glad the Countdown has finally begun--though I feel like the wait for 7A has not been nearly as grueling as the wait for 6B was, for some reason.

I loved it! Ben is hilarious, and watching him and Bender be devilish together is comedy gold. I finally showed my Mom some Futurama (This clip) and she cracked up a lot. "That's my bastard" is already a classic line to me.

But Bender already has another son remember? He gave it to the Robot Devil.

I agree but I guess in the sense that I always thought that was such a dark scene, I mean that was super heartless of Bender.

That gag in TBWABB was  my favourite one of the movie actually. If there's more stuff like that in TBATB, I'll be happy.

I'm still not a big fan of Ben's voice though, but oh well.

Also, thank you cake for breaking the page.  no no

What I enjoyed about the first time around was the fact that such a major part of Bender's life was used as a throw-away jokeThat's hilarious, if only on a meta-level.

That's precisely what pissed me off about it, actually. I'm fine with the writers carelessly messing with the established back stories of tertiary characters--but to do that with a main character like Bender, for the sake of a throwaway gag of dubious quality, is a little unacceptable.

I'm not saying that the joke was awful, or that it ruined TBWaBB for me or anything...but still. I'm with Spacedal: It was a really dark moment that, funny or not, didn't need to be there to move the plot forward. I'm sure the Robot Devil could have taken something else from Bender; it didn't have to be his never-before-seen-or-even-alluded-to son.

And yes, I get that part of the gag's supposed humor comes from the fact that it's so random. But it just doesn't work for me, 'cause I'm no fun and do not understand comedy. Or something.

Clearly.  What you listed are reasons I love the joke, though.  I think doing a throw-away joke involving a major part in one's life to a major character like Bender made it even funnier.  And it being really dark was all the more amusing.

And I sincerely doubt - and hope not - that we are going to see this son again.  Because that might suggest that it was actually Bender's son, and not just a throw-away gag.

On the topic of Ben's voice, I'm so glad that the one we heard in the animatic is the actual voice and not just a placeholder. It's hilariously grating and I love them for doing that instead of giving him a Tress-MacNeille-does-a-baby voice.

If there's one thing Futurama knows how to do, it's a good montage. The animation and music look and sound as good as ever! All the effort they put into it shows.

Although, I don't get the 'Second Floor Bank of NNY' joke. Is it just supposed to be weird, and therefore funny? Someone please explain frown

I could be wrong, but I assumed it was supposed to be an overly specific description. As in, there's not really any reason why that sign should be there.

One thing I like about that preview clip for TBATB is there seems to be a lot more of NNY shown in it. big grin

Also, today's preview, the vending machine Bender has sex with, Bev! Including a preview of some of the beverages she serves... It also says she's voiced by Wanda Sykes. wink





Nice to see Walrus Juice on there... cool
