Does anybody else have a soft spot for Washbucket?  The hopeless romantic with big dreams of a new life with her beloved in another city, stymied by the fact that she is janitorial equipment...

Yes, I do indeed. She is the consummate tragic figure, awash in agony over unrequited love. I guess when it comes to seducing human men, she is rather wet behind the ears.

Let's face it, if you're in not only Amy Wong's knockout body but also in very fancy come hither lingerie and you still can't initiate nookie, then you obviously really need to work on your seduction technique.  

And I love Washbucket, I hope she becomes the Scruffy of the new post cancelation Futurama, in that she makes a memorable first appearance out of nowhere as a seemingly one note character, but gradually creeps in as an "unofficial" core PE character.  PE needs another female.  

Oh and I think Leela would be the one with the mistletoe shaped buckle.  From what we've seen of her this season, she's pretty horny and it's becoming a running gag to see her lady boner get slapped down.

Did not know that Katey Sagal (voice of our beloved Planet Express ship Captain Turanga Leela) was going to be roasting Roseanne tonight on Comedy Central. Very cool- both women played trashy wives on their respective late 80's-90's sitcoms that broke ground for televised comedies for being so crude and lowerclass. Roseanne did guest star on Futurama, after all ("Three Hundred Big Boys"). I hope that at least there is one reference of her role as the sexy cyclops. Jane Lynch only introduced her by her "Married... with Children" and "Sons of Anarchy" roles (that bitch!). At the time of writing, Katey just roasted and there were some pretty good jokes.

I hope to watch the roast sometime tonight online, it looks like a good one!

But can we just take a minute to appreciate how great Katey looks for her age? I'd always assumed she was in her late forties, but after a google search out of boredom I discovered she's 2 years shy of 60! God damn, woman.

Leela was already mentioned in a scenario. So, don't worry, everyone got taken care of in regards to pointless, stupid, dirty jokes big grin

For some reason, the following image came to my mind: Leela wearing a necklace with a mistletoe shaped pendant,  looking expentingly/sexfully at Fry. Who gives a confused/innocent look and once again doesn't get it wink

I'm learning to teach maths to primary aged children, does that help?

BBA: Release date: 28 November, 1999 (set it the year 2000)
FWH: Release date: 8 August, 2012 (set in 3012)

25+12 = 37

Plus the infosphere says 37
(Date of birth: 29 July, 2975)

BUT at the end of Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles:

Fry: We did it! We're the right ages again!
Leela: I think I might be a couple years younger.

Not sure if true or Leela just hopes it to be true.

Fry's also 37 (biologically) ... did the writers do that on purpose? I was kind of hoping Fry was younger xD Make Leela a cougar (Fry:*mrow*)

Well..maybe Leela has a thing for older men. (Though, should she find out about the events in TLPJF, she might realise she got much more than she bargained for wink )

Woo! Totally didn't see that when I was looking at the infosphere >< again, you're a stickler for detail.

Also Leela dated Lars - he essentially was an older Fry.

Speaking of detail, the lines on Zoid's tie are over onto his claw... also the face on the money looks scarily like Scruffy... but I think maybe that's just the moustache

The characters don't age, so Fry is still (at the very least physically/for all intents and purposes) in his mid-twenties. Perfectly age appropriate for Leela.

Looking through episodes and release dates, the closest episode bearing any connection with my birthday is The Honking.

I've got lots of Simpsons episodes, though, but if Futurama continue with the Wednesday night releases then an episode is going to fall on Halloween and I'll properly have an episode released on my birthday - yayay! (although due to time differences, it'll technically be the next day for us Aussies, but whatever tongue )

Although, Fun on a Bun is set in Oktoberfest time:

Oktoberfest in Germany begins Saturday, September 22, 2012, and ends Sunday, October 7, 2012.
So will it still be October in the show when the 31st rolls around?

I've always imagined Leela being at least a couple years older than Fry. It just fits, given how much more mature Leela is. And I'm aware them being the same age could show how different their lives have been up to that point, but that's not enough for me.

She was 25 in "Brannigan, Begin Again". So... add a bunch of years to that.

I always thought she was lying about her age there, based on Bender's reaction. "Unless we hit a time warp, I wouldn't worry about it."

I consider Fry and Leela to be somewhere between 28 and 33. Maybe 29 for Fry, 31 for Leela, as she's considerably more mature. Old enough that they've been around the block a few times but still young enough that they still retain their mental and physical youth.

Odd, Viva Mars Vegas is airing next week instead of 31st Century Fox, according to the Comedy Central TV Schedule.

As long as CC doesn't make a habit of airing the episodes out of order, this one time should not be a problem.

But CC, please please PLEASE don't do what you did in 6B, with the episodes aired seemingly at random, which completely destroyed any story arcs, and bunched up similar episodes instead of the originally intended spacing.

Well, at least the two eps are side-by-side and I hope there's no story arc between the two cause that would be confusing.

I'm looking forward to tonight's ep, which I'll watch at midnight Pacific time.  I really enjoyed watching the last two eps on my mom's 60" samsung while I was on vacation back east, though... :sad:

I don't mind episodes not being in Production Order. Except if it interrupts a 2-partner episode. Which we haven't seen yet (unless you count the movies).

EDIT: Here's another commercial! It's for Vivas Mars Vegas, which IS going to air next week.

Didn't know where else to post this, just a little news item:

In last night's Rifftrax Live! Manos: The Hands of Fate, the Rifftrax guys made a Futurama reference during a riff on a short film entitled "At Your Fingertips: Cylinders". The short had kids making stupid crafts out of toilet paper tubes and oatmeal containers. One kid made a robot that looked a lot like Bender, and one of the guys remarked "Bite my shiny cardboard ass!". Got a big laugh from the audience, and was a nice "you're welcome" for the MST3K reference made on Futurama years ago.

Since the hour-long season finale (of which I was only faintly aware; I thought I remembered DXC or someone mentioning that both the season premiere and the season finale would be a two-episode deal, but I couldn't be sure) is next week, Comedy Central's apparently providing extra promotional material for the last three episodes every day for the next week and a half.

Anyway, here's today's update...

I think Viva Mars Vegas is going to be a very successful episode. There are countless movies related to crime heists and the mob, so they will have plenty of great opportunities for subtle references. The plot will likely involve a lot of the characters doing different things and this has the potential to work beautifully (see The Prisoner of Benda).

Since the episode will be set on Mars, the secondary characters will play a great role, particularly Amy's parents, the Mafia, and the Martians. Callbacks are good, but they're really good when they play a concrete, important role instead of just being there.

 
Since the hour-long season finale (of which I was only faintly aware; I thought I remembered DXC or someone mentioning that both the season premiere and the season finale would be a two-episode deal, but I couldn't be sure) is next week,


So in other words, "31st Century Fox" and "Naturama" will be one after the other on the 29th?

But I thought that "31st Century Fox" was the THIRD-last episode (or second-last if you don't count the non-canon episode "Naturama") by production order, and since the episode after it ("Viva Mars Vegas") will be aired this week, I cannot see how you can get a two-parter out of the remaining two non-sequential episodes.

Unless CC is simply airing "31st Century Fox" and "Naturama" as a themed set, both dealing with sort-of animals.

31st Century Fox and Naturama are not meant to be 2-parters (nor where Viva Mars Vegas and Naturama), that's next year, with 7ACV24 and 7ACV25. 7ACV26 will be the 'Saturday Morning Fun Pit' thing.
