I love the shippiness, but Leela's biceps are freaky

Fry looks super awesome with wet hair.

Another feature about him that reminds me of me. flirt

(Except mine doesn't look awesome when wet, it just goes really flat then puffy when it dries, like a dome...)

Leela looks very muscular, must be the affects of Nectar.

Anyone else predicting a bedroom/sex scene where Leela accidently hurts Fry due to her strength? laff

I do not want to shock the shippers, but here is another possible theory regarding the nectar's effect:

Leela and Fry are not really together, her erotic interest was just stirred by the drug. And -by the end of the episode, with Leela being "clean"- she is no longer interested in Fry, maybe with a "Sorry I was so drugged to suggest this. Let's forget it and never ever talk about it again"  excuse.

Yeah, I know, I am a spoilsport.... wink

But previews ARE often deliberately misleading, and those are often the most fun for writers. Besides, it might be a funny twist on the usual "Drugs change people for the worse, and their friends are the ones to notice". When this time said friend Fry finds a positive aspect in the drug -Leela's interest in him- he will certainly miss. Also, it might be quite Fry-ish to bring a personal sacrifice by trying to get Leela away from the drug for her own sake, knowing it will deprive him of this chance to get her finally laid.

I also wonder how Amy comes into play:
For a mere drug abuse, one person is enough. Maybe one of them admits those negative consequences to herself and quits, while the other one is stubborn and wants to pull it through at all costs (in that case, it seems obvious who the stubborn character will probably be wink )

I don't think that you able shock shippers more than "Zapp Dingbat" will...

Also I don't actually care if that sweet kiss was caused by drug side effect or not. At least we'll get some F/L tongue action anyway. That did not happen at all last season. So yeah, now I'm trying to be more optimistic towards Season 7. smile

I doubt that image surprised too many people. It was rather obvious that Leela would want to get her mom and Zapp separated...and how she might do so imhO rather overobvious.

i also didn't approve of Bender bending Fry's leg backwards but he should be fine

Fry looks so frigging adorable with his hair down.

Fry looks super awesome with wet hair.

agreed.

despite that stuff i don't like, i'm really excited for Futurama to return 'cause of this:

Foreseeing such a "ingenious" plot turn and actually watching that pesky Zapp / Leela scene are two different things. Anyway, I think the animators have done their best to embarrass as many people as possible.

So according to this, season seven's 3-mini-story episode is called "Saturday Morning Fun Pit" and will consist of three stories, done in different animation styles, as in "Reincarnation".

Even though I'm sure it pissed them off to no end, I think they got the picture.  I predict no more F/L resets of the BBS/Rebirth magnitude from here on out.  shifty

'Saturday Morning Fun Pit' could be an internal name they are using for it.  He did say "...we're calling our..." instead of just "it's called..."

They look like they're about to make out.

I was just coming in here to complain that "The Butterjunk Effect" looks like it might offer that same variety of obnoxious Leela/Amy fan-service that we got with the cringe-worthy Leegola/Gynecaladriel smoochin' "Bender's Game"...

...but then I saw today's Fry/Leela storyboards, and I figured I'd best shut my mouth. Even if the writers do go the fan-service route with Leela and Amy, they're also satisfying my shippy wishes with the Fry/Leela stuff. So whatever--I'll call it even.

I love that scene, where Farnsworth and Zoidberg go down on each other. Because it's actually very easy for me to picture it in my head with Fry and Leela doing it since that's what's actually happening. I'm a Fry/Leela purist I guess...?

So did I, but perhaps there will be two compilation episodes in production season seven.  The same thing happened in production season six, with a compilation episode ending both 6A and 6B.  Naturama (7ACV13) is probably intended to end 7A, leaving Saturday Morning Fun Pit to perhaps end 7B.

This is true. However, my beef lies with the writers' need to pander to the fans in general. Like, I'd rather never see another gratuitous and out-of-character LesYay-ish moment between Leela and Amy again, and in exchange only see Fry and Leela making out in other people's disgusting bodies. The latter at least seems true to the characters (if not a little vulgar, as was the case with the table-lovin' in "The Prisoner of Benda"); the former is blatant fan-service, to which I am generally opposed.[/self-righteous ranting]

I thought it was called "Naturama"...

So did I, but perhaps there will be two compilation episodes in production season seven.  The same thing happened in production season six, with a compilation episode ending both 6A and 6B.  Naturama (7ACV13) is probably intended to end 7A, leaving Saturday Morning Fun Pit to perhaps end 7B.

I assumed the same thing, that "Naturama" is 7A's non-canon finale, and "Saturday Morning Fun Pit" (which, from MG's description, sounds pretty awesome) is 7B's non-canon finale. 'Course, from its title alone "Naturama" sounds pretty stupid, so I kind of hope I'm wrong and that "Saturday Morning Fun Pit" is actually a 7A episode.

Not much to say about today's promo.  I hope you're right Danny.  Other than the shippy stuff (which is suspect due to the whole nectar-steroids thing) this episode doesn't seem terribly compelling though I would love to be proven wrong.

I wonder if Labarbara is is going to be in on all of this.  They mentioned in "Neutopia" that she is fond of roller-derby.

My assumption is that Fry and Leela have been more or less "together" and probably, uh, doing stuff for a while, if on an off-and-on basis. I think the writers just don't want to mess up the show by inserting it into every episode. This isn't the first time they've suggested activity between them. I wish they would commit to the continuity a bit more, I guess, but I think from "Overclockwise" we are meant to assume that they're basically together.

Also, the scenes in "Prisoner of Benda" were awesome. I appreciate the shippy stuff, but this is a sci-fi show. It works best when there's a comical sci-fi twist on it. "The Sting" and "Parasites Lost" would have been pretty boring if they had straight, down-to-earth romantic plot lines.

A "non-sci-fi-plot" related romantic plot line was tried in "Overclockwise", and it didn't work too well. Leela seemed to leave for no special reason, and returned when a happy end was needed. It seemed neither plot nor character driven.
It was more like:
"We need some conflict...PRIVATE LEELA! DISMISSED!!!!"
"We need some happy end...PRIVATE LEELA!!! ATTENTION!!!"

I thought that stuff was okay, though not the strongest moment in this whole plot thread for sure (though the ending was excellent). I think it helped though that the main plot still involved a lot of sci-fi wackiness. I wouldn't be very interested in an episode of Futurama that was all down-to-earth examination of their relationship.

It sounds like a contradiction, but Leela is the least suitable character to carry an obviously action oriented plot over a long time.

Having given her too many positive skills/abilities in early episodes, the character is the most likely one of the cast to spawn lazy writing, by declaring her just "to be good enough".

Had Leela been the character in IITMF sent to the robot asylum, I am pretty sure the showdown would have consisted in her landing a punch on Roberto, declaring that one to be strong enough and sending him to the ground.  While Fry's lack of abilities forced the writers to come up with an unexpected, funny solution and a new twist.

Leela's action scenes are usually "quick and efficient" deeds, but rather plot details instead of being able to carry a long running plot. E.g. in FATSF, is was necessary for her to pull Fry out of the slurm to get the plot moving, but hardly anyone would call that an especially hilarious or surprising scene. It had to be done, kept the plot smoothly moving from one setting to another, but that's it. Which is quite fitting and spot-on for one of the most low-key characters.
While Fry's rescue in the end -saving Leela as the damsel in distress by not fighting any monsters, but rather his own addiction- would never have worked by declaring Fry "just good enough" , by suddenly developing so much willpower to ignore the slurm as soon as the necessity did arise.

So, to cut a long story short:
TBE imhO bears a great risk of consisting of too many scenes just featuring the lazy writing solution of "Leela being just good enough to get through, because...erm...she's great, you know".

@ Inqusitor Hein:  It reminds me of what happened with Brock Sampson.  He was so competent that he instantly removed all peril from any situation and they had to swap him with the flawed Sgt. Hatred.  I share your concern over TBE.  Leela is a rich character, but is often misused as you say.  Hopefully having Amy there will keep Leela from dominating everything.

Wow, Fry is getting a lot of action or so it would seem.  Can't shake the feeling that I'm being buttered up though...

Let's see... an interrupted F/L scene in 7ACV02, drugged and bulked up Leela and Amy raping kissing Fry in 7ACV06. That's all for now. And yeah, the "Nectar" side effect made local shippy things somewhat unnatural... at least for me. hmpf
