Holy shit!!! Looks fucking epic! So excited now. Thanks for the clip Madison. smile AUGH HOW COOL IS THE PE SHIP IN THE RACE, I'm confident that'll be in 2-D Blacktop. And Fry falling and with Seymour! It's highly possible it could just be a flashback sequence, why would he need to travel right back to 2000 or so? That would be A LOT of 10 seconds...

Seems I was right about Calculon getting his old body back, let's hope his personality is different and stays that way... Otherwise, what a pointless story arc. frown Glad to see the return of laser guns too. Lots of guns in that trailer. red face The creature in Murder on the Planet Express deffo seems to have been inspired by The Thing.

i hate the trailer but Fry looks cute, he seems happy during some parts, & i like his outfits. the video seems suspicious, too. i really hate the last clip but i think Fry lives. he says he's immortal

Keep taking that medication, psycho. smile

I took the liberty of posting it to Youtube. Before last season, I recorded most of the trailers and uploaded them. Hope you guys enjoy it!

Holy shit, the animation looks a step up from anything they've ever done! Maybe they didn't use Koreans... But the sequences rendered in Maya now look twice as good, and thank god Autodesk got off their asses and made it so grand (The program, that is. Also the CGI animators got better, too).

Now I am really excited for summer.

Couple of odd things in the last scene with the Fry fall. Leela's ring seems to have roundish "gems" sort of like Jumbonium subatomic particles but all the same color. Leela doesn't get splattered by what appears to be (oddly dark) blood. Could be an animation short cut but they've never shied away from a good splattering before like a Zoidberg inking. And instead of Leela being horrified she looks up sort of like there might be more falling Frys, sort of like it's become common.

Might be because of ratings. Blood dosen't go well with American television.

Nice analysis, especially the part about multiple Frys. red face Paradox duplicates? Clones?

Alright, that trailer is fucking awesome. Gotta love the satanic ritual to resuscitate Calculon. My favorite bit if the very end, very funny ! It looks like they've traveled back to the 20th century. I think this is the first time Leela goes there with Fry, but i'm not sure... Anyway, this season looks great. I can't wait !

I think it's safe to say that the tentacle Leela clip is "Leela and the Genestalk". My guess is that something causes her mutations to grow more severe and this somehow winds up with a giant (most likely an alien of some kind) taking her away to a gigantic castle that the crew have to save her from.
Perhaps they'll parody Rapunzel to some extent with tentacles in place of hair. Anyway, that's the impression I get based on the title combined with that tiny clip.

Obviously, that clip of them in the G.I. Joe style is from "Saturday Morning Fun Pit".

I love the bit with the bent guns.

Does anyone have any idea what that strange 2D-art style clip with the man on stilts is all about? Is it part of "Saturday Morning Fun Pit" or something else entirely?

I like that there seems to be some sort of Planet of the Apes-inspired simian uprising episode. Any guesses as to which one that is?

"Murder on the Planet Express" looks to be even better than I'd hoped. The two Zoidbergs gag was great and I love that it's clearly taking a lot from The Thing. I adore The Thing and I hold it up as the best "straight" horror movie ever made, so it'll be nice to see it referenced for a change. It so rarely gets a shout-out in pop culture. I see that nobody seems concerned that Zoidberg is seemingly dead now, though? Any guesses as to how they'll handle that one? Probably something not all that interesting like him just cutting his way out of the stomach with his claws or something.

"Calculon 2.0" looks fun, though I hope the plot has more to it than simply them bringing Calculon back to life. The clip was funny - particularly Hermes' "This is the least scientific thing I've ever seen" line, but that's not enough plot to get me particularly interested.

"T.: The Terrestrial" is obviously the one with Jrrr, all grown up. My guess is that Fry somehow winds up stranded on the Omicronian planet and Jrrr helps him escape.

Was the woman kissing Zoidberg his old flame from "Mobius Dick"? She looks familiar but I remember that woman being a redhead, so I'm not too sure.

And Seymour. What's that all about? I'd love it to be time-travel, but I think some sort of flash-back or reverting into a memory scenario is more likely.


Holy shit, the animation looks a step up from anything they've ever done! Maybe they didn't use Koreans...
I can't say I agree, there. It looked like some of their sloppiest animation to date, to me.

But overall, that was an impressive selection of clips. I'm surprised at how much it's grabbed my attention again to say that 7A underwhelmed me so severely.

'Gentlemen, The new office chairs are here!' Great:3
Aah, DELIVERIES!

My first intention was that it was Jrrr as well, but since he grown up did he eat his mother yet? But since they'r all immortal doesn't that eventually make te whole planet full of males?(like enginering school if you know what I mean;))... Was ndnd him mom?

I was slightly underwhelmed. There weren't any totally amazing episodes, but there weren't really any bad episodes either; at worst, there were a few average ones. (For the curious, I found A Farewell to Arms, The ButterJunk Effect,  Free Will Hunting, and Near-Death Wish to be average.) A few other episodes throughout the season had small things that irked me, but nothing major.

"Fun on a Bun" was above average for me.
The episode featured a certain epicness, that has been lacking in season 7A so far.
When compared to season 6a:
TLPJF (travelling to the end of time) and TMAR (an event changing society) feature such epic undertones, Reirth had an overdue sci fi classic (a machine that does not know it is one), PoB went to extreme Whackyness...
To cut a long story short: Those episodes had strong motives and plots.
While 7A had mostly random si fi shenanigans: Episodes that were mostly okay, in a "filler episode like" way. But nothing really stood out...

Another thing 7A suffered from was putting Fry to often in the background:
The former "point of view" role resulted in a very distinct way of story telling.
7A often appeared less "centred".

I'm thinking that weird 2-D clip is either a part of 2-D Blacktop where they actually go into a flat 2-D world or maybe like the start of SMFP as a cheap, cartoony like opening.

The race scene is also part of 2-D Blacktop I think, as the title is a parody of a 1971 road movie, Two-Lane Blacktop.

Why is Hermes so low at the table? He doesn't even seem to have a chair...

Probably something to do with limbo. laff

What? John Delaney did awesome work in the comics. If you want to see the worst official Futurama material, look at any comic with pencils by Mike Kazaleh.
