A character from "Game of Thrones", I assume.
(Or rather the actress playing said character, to be sufficiently nitpicking wink )

Wrong.  Everybody Loves Raymond only began in 1996.  I had stated that my list only includes series with at least 7 years in the 1990s.  Please make sure your facts are correct before attacking a post.

Jesus, no need to call something an "attack". I just missed one detail, I thought you meant shows that lasted seven seasons and started in the 90's.

But anyway, back to the topic on Futurama's news. We currently have nothing, so I guess posting for now wouldn't make much sense until something new comes up.

I hope they'll make an episode of futurama based on YOLO and SWAG(i hate people who keep saying that sooooo much), perhaps those bended guns in the promo were a form of #yolo xD

I like Attack of the Killer App, but it's based on a relatively lasting thing (smartphones and whatnot, and the general "connectedness" of modern life), 2010-specific references aside. YOLO strikes me as a fad that won't make it a year. It would probably be gone by the time the episode even airs.

Also, with Attack of the Killer App, at least almost everybody knows what is being referenced. With things like YOLO, I'm not sure all of the Futurama viewers would quite get the reference. I say this because I think a fairly large amount of fans are somewhat older, say 40s and up, and many of the people I know that age don't know what YOLO or "swag" are exactly. I think the pop culture references need to be used sparingly and well-known by all age groups.

An episode like that may be the first to earn a /10 rating from me.

I'm 25 and I feel too old for an episode based on YOLO and swag!

Seriously though, I'm not a big fan of pop-culture jokes in Futurama, because they age badly. I remember ATKA airing - my first thought after seeing it was that it was probably hysterical when the writers came up with the idea, but the year it took to bring it to the screen really detracted from the joke. It felt stale by then. (Susan Boil? Case in point.)

I prefer jokes that last longer, like the "Kegel"-sizer machine in the gym (from Why Must I Be A Crustacean In Love?) or Us People Magazine - "The Magazine More Women Deny Reading!" (from The Thief of Baghead).

Worst News Thread EVER!!!

The 90's comedy debate has gotten out of hand. Of course there was good comedy in the 90s, but "taste" is such a subjective concept that we're not all going to agree on what qualifies. It's fun to debate it, but at the same time . . . opinion is not fact. So play nice, kids. wink

Nor is it news!

Anyway if they put any of these fresh ebonic terms in Futurama I may just murder someone.. for good taste treason!
Also I love that urban dictionary claims that both those slang terms are used by the dumbest of the dumb.

Anyway, in real news Futurama issue #66 will be out very shortly and #67 is set to follow in May. Why care about that???? Well, Eric Rogers wrote issue #66.

So, not to do Danny's job for him, but Eric Rogers just said on Twitter to someone that there's "no word yet on anything after this summer's 13."

Seems like it's up in the air and no one actually knows for sure if it's coming back or not.

That's the cover of the UK edition, released in August 2012. The UK ones are kind of shitty, as they just pick and choose stories from the US comics, throw on a cover from any old issue (or use new art) and then toss a bunch of plastic freebies in with the comic.

The real 200th issue released this week in the US, and has the cover seen below:

I should also note that issue 200 itself has a Futurama reference. Theres a gag about how Matt Groening was a cab driver who stole the idea for Futurama from a customer.
