What does Jimmy Neutron have to do with anything?

A really well put together film from a production and an animation standpoint, compared to the show. Even though the movie played into the show and not vice-versa. The animations were wonky in the show and perfected in the movie.

For Christ's sake Unmentionable, the Futurama staff probably don't even know you exist.

Anyway, I'm holding out for an announcement or something at this panel today. frown Fingers crossed.

I would not be too sure they did...sad but true:

- Every series has a hardcore fanbase. Yet -for Futurama- that base is more important than for other ones. From all the major series, Futurama might hold the lowest percentage of casual viewers, and the highest percentage of at least halfway dedicated fans.
- The Futurama writers already admitted to continuity research on fan sites.
- Also, nearly every writer will check the critics/feedback on his work. Those might be ones on rather generic sources (e.g. TV.com, etc...). But -given the importance of the hardcore fanbase- they will also check that groups behaviour/feedback.

So, certain themes popping up with regular frequency on major fansites (and I would label Peel as one) stand a rather good chance of being noticed sooner or later by a member of the Futurama staff.

At least, Unmentionable irritated Eric Rogers via Twitter. Eric rightfully called him a "prick" big grin. Also Unmentionable was busy bothering Katey Sagal and Lauren Tom, if I recall correctly.

And AH YES, he went by the name of Honey Badger-something if I remember. Good on Eric. big grin

Yeah, Unmentionable definitely harassed Rogers, Sagal and Lauren Tom. I'm afraid they'll begin to see every one and each of us as his equal. I won't happen, but it bothers me.

Less than 40 minutes remaining until the start of the event.

I'm excited about the 7B teaser ! ... And anxious about the possibly non-existent news.

So far, a new season has never been announced at such an event.  It's always a press release released on some weekday.  So was season 7 and season 6, and so was the press release for the films.  It was never Cohen or Groening standing up at a panel shouting, 'we're back for another season!'.

Essentially; if nothing is announced today, I wouldn't be surprised, but you shouldn't get your hopes down.  Do get them down if we've heard nothing by March.

In fact information about renewal for Season 7 was leaked by Katey Sagal prior to the official press release.

So, any information from the convention yet? I really hope Futuramas renewed for at least Season 8 to kind of match the original run. It really isn't its time to go yet and is still good and fresh enough to deserve 1 more Season at least. Also no Carlin Christ, no. Unmentionable's not a reliable source. Damn right Eric gets to call him a prick.

OMG big news!

Unmentionable just cancelled Futurama, b/c he's really Rupert Murdoch.

Who else would call Eric a loser (then edited to jerk) without ever meeting him, b/c he's a winner in my book.

Futurama forever, amen.

Guys this thread is for news, politics of this forum is not news about the show. So can we stop arguing and talk about why CC is probably arguing with Fox over rights? Because last big factual news I heard was speculation on Fox picking up the show again.

I really hope that somebody from Sketchfest leaks information somewhere on the internet on the panel. Supposedly they are to show some clips from the new episodes.

I am becoming super-apprehensive over Futurama's lifespan. We haven't heard anything about it other than it is being deliberated. I would love to see it for two more years (hunh, that should be a political chant or something), and January is nearing its end. Should we bum-rush the executive who have Futurama's fate in their hands?

Unmentionable you're not helping, either. Continuing to respond is to do nothing other then amounting to do much about nothing.

Yes, it is.
But you also should have realised that the post did not exclusively refer to "Does the Futurama writing staff know Unmentionable".  Yet -to answer the question- a more general approach is the only reasonable solution. Turning the question from "Does the Futurama writing staff know Unmentionable?" to "Does the Futurama writing staff look at Fansites?".
Of course, that question could theoretically be answered with a simple "I'm sure they do" or "Nope, they won't waste their time with it". But both these short phrases will not give the readers ANY reasons what made the appropriate posters draw that conclusion. Some serious thought work might have been put into it, or the person might have just tossed a coin.
So, it was a matter of politeness and respect towards others for me, to write down the reasons which lead me to assume that the Futurama writing staff will imhO very probably occasionally look at fan sites. Then -with Unmentionable posting rather frequently, and many of his posts being rather "memorable- it's a matter of statistics that sooner or later one writers would have seen one of Unmentionable's posts.
 
I thought about writing down the same reasons down when SGB suggested showing Miss Futurama's artwork to Eric Rogers/the staff. Assuming the theory of them occasionally looking at fan sites is correct, and taken Miss Futuramas frequent art posts into consideration, chances are indeed rather high that one or more members of the writing staff would have seen those pictures.

Hmm. This thread as only a few more posts until page 20. Maybe season 8 will be conveniently confirmed as the new thread starts? tongue
