I just realised that the movie theme song (from BBS) was originally in Futurama game. That is bit of a surprise to me. Furthermore I'll just say that I like that "solo part" of the theme very much.

Good old Futurama is back, and it's Lewis Morton to the rescue!

I laughed more at this clip than I have all season:

I got high hopes for the whole rest of the season. Heck, I've felt that way since "The Inhuman Torch". Episode had a very Classic Futurama feel to it. I can't believe we're already half-way through the new season. I'd better start typing up a good bye speech to Futurama.

Of course, this isn't it. But here's something it might look like:

Show severely changed my life since I found it on Adult Swim. Ahh, at first I wasn't so crazy for it, and would just watch it because Family Guy was after. I preferred Family Guy when I was younger since I thought it was funnier back then. But once my Sci-Fi taste buds came in (or more notably, Puberty started), I slowly creeped out of my cave to check it out once more. Before I knew it, I started to totally dig it. I eventually found the website known as FuturamaEpisodes.org. I watched every single episode off of there. When I was done, the sixth season was weeks away. So really, it was perfect timing. I've tuned in to every episode since then. Do not regret it, (except for Yo Leela Leela, my best friend was over when that aired. To think of what I could have done in that Half Hour...). Anyways, just felt like sharing this once more, cause I just love the experiences I had with this show.

That clip was pretty good, but I don't think it was the funniest thing this season by a long shot.

I'm feeling optimistic about the rest of the season, too, though; the only episode I'm really not looking forward to very much is "Assie Come Home." I think I've just become a bit burnt-out about Bender-episodes, so I'm glad that's the only one left.

I have this weird feeling that the final seven will ALL be great.

And that the regular writers just simply got burned out for a bit, somewhere after that great "Viva Mars Vegas" episode.

Even I'm kind of expecting the final bunch of episodes to be good - and I've pretty much despised season 7.

I certainly expect great things from "Game of Tones", "Murder on the Planet Express" and "Meanwhile".

I hope there is going to be video of it soon after.

And I suppose there will not be a panel next year, right?

Quote from: Jesse Carp
Oh my, it looks like they also have the finished act two for us to actually watch! Comedy Central said no but Groening adds what can they do, cancel them again?

Haha, nice one Matt. big grin (Source.)

Quote from: Christine Seghers
The audience was then shown the animated second act. I don't want to give too much away but it involves Fry and Leela's epic romance and time travel. To say the second act ended on a cliffhanger would be an understatement.

That's just some artwork by the editor of all the Futurama and Simpsons comics (he was also the art director of Futurama in it's original run), I would have spoilered it if I thought it was anything significant. Maybe it's from an upcoming comic issue though? red face

I guess when they said all of our favorite characters will die, they meant every single character in the series. Also, not going to read the spoilers for Meanwhile. Just going to wait till it airs with the hopes that it will be epic and emotional like people have said.

Bender makes a cameo in Season 12 of Family Guy as shown in the Comic Con trailer (around the 2 minute mark when Peter changes the channel on Stewie).

I'm starting to read that FX might pick up Futurama. It's pretty much on Forums similar to ours. No real proof behind it, but it would definitely be interesting if they did.

Fox does seem to be expanding their animation programming block. I'm not entirely sure what is going on with the network's animation blocks or branch channel (in fact I'm 78% sure that I'm not using the appropriate television terminology). I would think that FX is a major contender as a new home for Futurama considering it is a branch of Fox and has a fairly strong summer line-up with Wilfred, Louie, and Anger Management.

Though Fox was the original network for Futurama, thus they were the original network to cancel it, they sure as hell are better than TBS. TBS ran Futurama reruns for less than a year at like two in the morning. That's it. I think they may have had a short clip or two in promos for their late night block, but they were still pretty shitty to Futurama.

Which brings this up: other than Fox's "Animation Domination" block on Sundays and myNetworkTV (which has as of recently decreased its showing from two to one on weekdays), The Simpsons doesn't air on any other channel (as far as I know in the United States.) In comparison, Family Guy airs either once or twice each weekday on myNetworkTV, several times a day on TBS, back-to-back on Adult Swim, as well as once or twice each Sunday on Fox.

Of course this is entirely speculative at this point.  I would love to see FX pick up Futurama, I think Futurama still has several seasons (at least) of good episodes left in it.

It must be too late for new episodes to be aired next year, it takes something like a year for a Futurama episode to be written, the soundtrack recorded, and the episode animated and edited.  Since the deal sounds unlikely to be announced until after "Meanwhile" has aired, and some amount of time would be needed to re-sign everybody, I would bet that the new production run would not start airing until 2015.

It is now apparent that Comedy Central doesn't care about Futurama at all.  They hardly ever show any repeats of the new season at all.  I missed the "Torch" episode and I haven't been able to see a repeat of it all.  frown

Every week right before they play the new episode, they play the previous week's one. I'm sure they also have some other incentives, such as a boost to DVD sales if fans happen to have missed a few episodes.

It is now apparent that Comedy Central doesn't care about Futurama at all.

Like TMC said, they seem to play a lot of repeats; just this past Sunday afternoon, they had a marathon of some season four episodes ("Less Than Hero," "Obsoletely Fabulous," and Devil's Hands) and capped it with a repeat of "Saturday Morning Fun Pit." And I think they show at least an hour's worth of episodes every weekday, somewhere around three or four o'clock in the afternoon.

It sucks that Comedy Central canceled the show and all (in theory, that is; I'm actually fine with this being the last season), but they certainly don't seem to have done so with as much malice as Fox did. I certainly wouldn't go so far as to say the network doesn't care about Futurama anymore.

I meant that they don't show repeats of the new season.  They might show a repeat of a new episode maybe 3 times a week.  Yes, I do know that they air past episodes everyday and I usually watch them.
