I wasn't actually telling him to shut up. It's just a general expression I use to convey my surprise at awesome news. Sort of like, "Shut the front door!"

Yeah. I'm lame.

Yep, I also thought the "Shut up" was refering to me.
I already typed an answer telling you I didn't say Billy's reading was a negative thing, just very similar in nature to Chuck's "Top 10 facts reading"wink (Also, due to Futurama's nerdy parody nature, such an nerdculture event like the fact reading is really suitable to be spoofed/copied Futurama style wink )

My internet connection broke down while trying to post it, and the text was lost.  But as it is no longer necessary, nothing important seems to have gone missing wink

I heard "Shut up" in the same intonation as "OMG", or "No way", and didn't see it as negative in any way.    And I'm not even a Valley Girl smile

More on topic: "Countdown to the upcoming episode: 43 days".  Yippie.

I understood him.  It sounded to me like he was looking for a nest of season six haters to find shelter in. wink Maybe a year or two ago that would have been PEEL, but I think now the majority opinion here is that season six holds its own among the others quite well.

That image of Destructor has me interested in D3012 now. (Or maybe D3, however you want to abbreviate it.)

It's been ages since we've had him in an episode, and he's one of my favourite characters.

What have they said about 'A Farewell to Arms' in this week's Countdown to Futurama Podcast?

Here's the new information I gathered from the podcast:

"Farewell to Arms"

- We will see a full Planet Express Prom
- Matt Groening loves tentacles, but is tired of them now
- The pyramid spaceship was left behind on Earth, not Mars
- We get to see the pyramid ship fly and it somehow "comes together" (transforms?)
- At this point in the story there is no electrical power on Earth so they have to use a ship powered by snakes  laff

"Decision 3012"

- Napoleon Bender is part of a Robot revolt that takes place in a "flash forward" segment
- Chris Travers is from Hawaii
- This ep is going to have a "sci-fi twist" according to DXC

They didn't talk at all about the Morbo clip or the pic of Destructor.

So I'm gonna predict the "sci-fi twist" now:

The robot army thing isn't actually a flashforward, but a flashback. All the scenes we think are the present are actually the future.

Meh. Maybe.

They were talking about how Travers is going to have to find a way to get his "Earth Certificate" and that's when Cohen mentioned the sci-fi twist.  Don't know if they are connected but it sure sounded like it to me.

Here's my prediction:

The image of Bender and Destructor is actually a CGI movie created by Chris Travers to use as promotional material for his election campaign. But later they discover he keeps leaving Earth to get the ideas from the real Bender and Destructor. Leela blackmails him do she can make money off him and the-

Oh wait... they did that already? Nevermind. frown

Question: In "Ghosts in the Machine", when Fry says, "No! Winter's coming!" is that a Game of Thrones reference? I keep hearing "winter's coming" and I always think of that episode because I don't watch Game of Thrones.

Speaking of stuff that Fry says, here's something I noticed recently:

"What's the word? Sir!"

"Take this Mr. President! Sir!"

"You shut up sir!"

"That is entirely not true sir."

What's up with Fry's obsession with the word "sir"? These examples are just off the top of my head.  confused

I think Fry sometimes is just trying to sound smart via politeness and it ends up failing.

Question: In "Ghosts in the Machine", when Fry says, "No! Winter's coming!" is that a Game of Thrones reference? I keep hearing "winter's coming" and I always think of that episode because I don't watch Game of Thrones.

That's highly contentious.  Game of Thrones originally debuted on television April 17, 2011.  Ghost in the Machines originally aired June 30, 2011.  Production on both most likely occurred in 2010.  This suggests that the line "No! Not the armpits! Winter's coming!" is most likely not a result of the show Game of Thrones as the tv series hadn't aired when that episode was being written.  However, it is entirely possible that the writers were familiar with the book series A Song of Ice and Fire of which the tv series Game of Thrones was adapted from.  The first book in the series A Game of Thrones was first published in 1996.  

My personal interpretation is that the quote in question is not a direct reference to the aforementioned series.  I'm not entirely familiar with the series in its book medium, but in the show the phrase often used is generally said, "Winter is coming," and is usually thrown into the context of dread with supporting contextual clues.  The line Fry says is similar, but has no other context, and my own interpretation was just that Fry was saying something silly yet inclusively logical: if he has no armpit hair, then there will be no hair to keep his armpits warm; this bothers him because winter approaches.

Note that it's still possible that in some vague way it actually is a reference to GoT.  It's just highly unlikely that it references the tv show, and if it is a reference, is much more likely to reference the source material.  The only way to know for sure though is to figure out who wrote that line and ask them directly.

So as I type this we have been shown previews of the first six episodes.  Combining what we have learned about them with their titles and my personal hunches about them, I would arrange them, from most promising to least promising, as follows:

A Farewell to Arms
The Thief of Baghead
The Bots and the Bees
The Butterjunk Effect
Decision 3012
Zapp Dingbat

^Bingo.

Anyway, I was watching some older episodes with subtitles on today, and they were just hilarious. Not only could they not spell Wernstrom's name correctly, but there were many other grammatical errors throughout.

None of them have me insanely excited yet (beyond the standard level of Futurama excitement) but we're still yet to see from the episodes I initially liked the sounds of ("The Six Billion Dollar Mon", "Free Will Hunting" and "Near-Death Wish".

What's up, fellas?

Figured I'd post something I found interesting.

I was reading a short story by George R R Martin titled, A Song for Lya. While reading it, I couldn't help but notice a lot of similarities it shared with BwaBB. The planet it takes place on is called Shkea and it's people, the Shkeen. The plot revolves around a giant alien organism that offers eternal love and connection through physical union with all of the Shkeen/humanity.

Anyways, it's a great sci-fi story and I'm just curious if Kaplan and Cohen ever read the story. If I were a betting man, I'd say that Cohen has.

I would think so too. Thanks for the story, I'll have to check that movie out sometime. Guessing I'd have to buy it off the internet though right?

Well, Futurama is set in the future, who knows, the writers may have predicted a pony take over and having to exterminate them xD

Speaking of the new episodes, is there an iTunes or Amazon-style pass that anyone's found anywhere? Neither of those sites seem to be offering up the new season anywhere.
