Over at the Simpsons fansite 'Nohomers' they closed the Futurama fourms today, due to lack of interest.. RIP Futurama.. fourms.

Once again another Futurama related thing is fucked by the general public not caring or watching it, while the true fans watch and stay only to see it slowly decay from lack of interest. It's the cross it must bear. May the subforum rest in peace.

Although I would come to the conclusion that forums in general have become somewhat out of vouge due to things like tumblr and Twatter and Phacebook. Us on Web 1.0 are the mighty sloth to those lesser apes and moas.

I'd argue that Futurama is popular on sites like 4chan and tumblr moreso then just fansites like PEEL in terms of numbers of regular users.

The plot for issue #67 of Futurama comics sounds pretty funny;

"While at a seafood restaurant called The Tartar House, Zoidberg gets unstuck in time, ricocheting from the past to the future, but he's going to need the help of the Planet Express crew in the present to prevent all life on Earth from being destroyed!"

Hm, Calculon being resurrected..

Wasn't it established in Lethal Inspection that robots can just put their data into a backup unit? Maybe Calculon didn't have one though, being one of the first robots (which we learned from The Honking)

I'd agree. I was also not aware that there was any danger of the show stopping. After watching that last several seasons many times, I've come to the conclusion that Futurama is as good as it's always been.

Best show on tv, and that includes GoT.

Nice choice.

I feel that 31CF is quite underrated; and easily in the better half of 7A.

And every episode title is revealed! It seems Lewis Morton is back with 2 episodes! He is written the script for TLPJF from season 6A. Ken Keeler is also written 2 episodes for season 7B.

Needs more Dan Vebber.

Anyway, it's interesting that both the first and (not surprisingly) the last episodes have been written by Ken.

I've got to say, I'm really liking some of the pairings with writers and episodes. Two Keelers, and two Mortons? big grin Two Mike Rowes is, well, meh. Also does anyone regconize the writer of Assie Come Home?

I'm suspecting that the finale isn't a two-parter after all. Why would they have two different writers and directors?

I just looked her up and she's an experienced television writer married to Patrick Verrone. Not a bad freelancer!

She wrote "The Duh-Vinci Code" I believe. I liked that episode, so I'll be interested to see Assie Come Home.

Carolyn Premish, anyone? big grin

I still think that was a pseudonym for Matt Groening, but as it was never addressed in the commentary then I suppose the world will never know for certain. "In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela" is still her only writing credit as per IMDb, and while that was by no means an awesome episode, I don't think it was so bad that Hollywood refused to let her freelance on anything ever again.

I'm a lot more excited about "T.: The Terrestrial" and a lot less excited about "Fry and Leela's Big Fling", now.

Also, does anyone else find it odd that "Saturday Morning Fun Pit" has just one writer after they reverted back to having a different writer on each segment, like they used to do, in "Naturama"?

Given that Naturama turned out to be a waste of a decent idea, I'm not terribly surprised. They've probably decided to go back to one writer for all three parts to see if that can help prevent it from sucking dead weasel balls.

It's not like they changed to three writers again straight after "The Holiday Craptacular", though, otherwise I'd agree with you.

Surely the episodes being in a single production season makes them too close together to make calls like that?

I don't know.

Plus, "Naturama", pointless and not exactly great as it was, was better than most of 7A.

That is of course, in your incredulous opinion. Seriously, some people still think Futurama is generally good. So don't speak like your opinion is an assertion that summarizes the general view on modern Futurama. At least for the fans that still enjoy the show. wink

Well..it's rather obvious that any judgment is merely personal, based on every individual's taste. It is in fact so obvious that hardly anyone will mention it anymore.
When I e.g. write "Branigan Begin Again is overrated", I do not feel the need to add "In my opinion". I just expect everyone to get it that way. After all, there has never been an absolute taste nor an authority in absolute taste.

So, if you still enjoy the show, you should give the literal rat's ass wether cyber_turnip, myself, or anyone else considers a season great/good/bad/Möbius Dick*....

I thought we knew the episode titles already (I knew all but 'Game of tomes' anyway) - but thanks for providing that link. I didn't know the order.

There's also the ep guide on infosphere, it's kinda empty though.

Just Fan's link essentially confirmed the writers and directors for each episode.

We already knew the titles.

And again; I wish there was more Dan Vebber.

Weinstein's quickly become one of my favourite writers, kinda wish he'd gotten two episodes. Give him one of Rowe's. better yet, give him both of Rowe's.
