Show of hands who actually read that novel-length TnUK post?

~ 2500 words (excluding quotes) is hardly novel-length.

As I've said before, if you're going to abbreviate my username, capitalise all or none of it. Doing elsewise only serves to re-inforce the impression that you're not too bright.

Oh, and responding to ~2500 carefully chosen words with a dumb joke could probably be seen as an indication that you're not capable of responding properly, and are conceding the point.

MSN TV has some brief synopses up (but the air-dates are all higgledy-piggledy):

Fry And Leela's Big Fling
> Fry and Leela's romantic vacation goes very wrong.

2-D Blacktop
> Professor Farnsworth joins a gang of street-racing punks.

T.: The Terrestrial
> After being marooned on an distant planet, Fry is befriended by a young monster.

"Fry And Leela's Big Fling" will be aired on June 19, according to its writer, Eric Rogers.

"T.: The Terrestrial" will probably feature Lrrr's young son from "The Problem with Popplers".

Oh my god! Is official, 7B is gonna be an interesting and crazy thing! Especially 2-D Blacktop (I don't know why I am laughing at that right now) and T.:The Terrestrial's plot sounds nice! We need more episodes about Fry.

And FALBF I don't know how to feel about it yet,but Eric Rogers is a good writter,so who knows,might be something good!

Maybe FALBF is the episode, where Fry accepts his "true sexuality" (tm) and meets his special "soulmate"? It could be the wrongest vacation in Futurama history... laff

I wonder what kind of place they're going for vacation? I'm also wondering whether Fry might propose to Leela in this episode so we can have a few premarital scenes before Meanwhile airs.


2-D Blacktop
> Professor Farnsworth joins a gang of street-racing punks.


I'm guessing he's joining a gang to go the 2nd dimension, but it might just be the Professor being crazy like always. I'm a bit skeptical of the episode since it's written by Mike Rowe, but he did write FATEM and the previews of it makes it seem really great, so hopefully he surprises us this time.


T.: The Terrestrial
> After being marooned on an distant planet, Fry is befriended by a young monster.


Nice to finally see a regular non Leela Fry episode this Season. They really didn't use Fry that much by himself in 7A, plus we get to see more of Lrrr, so this has some potential to be good.

So it looks like they're jumbling the order of the episodes again. While I can't say I'm a fan of that, it does make me a bit more interested in "Fry and Leela's Big Fling" since they thought it was good enough to be part of the opening of 7B.

Then again, they did open 6B with Neutopia...

Out of that batch, "Fry and Leela's Big Fling" is the only episode I am interested in.

Oooh, everything sounds nice! 2-D blacktop a little less, I'm usually not a big fan of professor episodes... yes! More fry episodes!

Neutopia wasn't VERY bad... but they would have been better of to have opened 6b with an episode like FATEG or something.

Does anyone knows where there will be a livestream when the first episodes are airing in the usa? Or do i have to wait for them to appear "somewhere else that day".

Yeah, support the show so it doesn't get.. nevermind.

DXC: And the series finale, which features a wedding between Fry and Leela, is “a tasteful, emotional gorefest,” he raves. “There’s a lot of death but there’s also a lot of time travel, so that makes for an interesting combination.” Adds Groening: “It’s a really satisfying ending. It’s an epic ending. If indeed it’s the ending.”

You know.. I just had a thought. What if CC saw "Meanwhile" and decided to end the show due to production costs obviously.. but also b/c we get a real whopper of an ending?

2-D Blacktop sounds like it might be about professor dealing with his age, but I hope not since it has been covered already.
And T.: The Terrestrial could be very entertaining and fun.

I'm really looking forward to all of those. I still like the Fry-Leela relationship, so I'm very excited for FALBF.
I'm also hopeful that T: The Terrestrial will be a light-hearted, Fry-humor-focused episode to balance out the more serious-sounding episodes. I just hope it doesn't deal very much with Lrrr and Ndnd's relationship, though, because I haven't been a big fan of episodes they're prominently featured in.

The (what we have seen so far) ET themed Terrestrial might be another spot-on parody sticking rather close to the original. Which looks promising, as I am a fan of that direct parody approach (I enjoyed episodes like "Law and Oracle", "Fry and the Slurm Factory", "War is the H Word".)

I somehow suspect the finale's time travel aspect might lead to the wedding being undone/not taking place at all.
Well...as long as they do not take the route:
- Let Fry die at the very beginning (The skyscraper fall is from "Meanwhile", I assume)
- Keep him out of the plot, while others try to bring him back
- Let him return the last second.
Leela in "Overclockwise" and Fry in "Thief of Baghead" got the "keep out of the plot" treatment, and it did not really work too well.

Fry falling of the roof suggests deadly situation having to be undone. A rather whacky finale might be fun for once. E.g. characters regularily dying, and constantly having to be brought back to life via time travel ("Just this one time more"). It sounds primitive for sure. Yet, "Prisoner of Benda" featured an equally simple situation ("Characters change bodies and cannot switch back"), and worked brillantly that way.

II just hope it doesn't deal very much with Lrrr and Ndnd's relationship, though, because I haven't been a big fan of episodes they're prominently featured in.

Agreed on that. "When Aliens attack" featured LRRR as the typical Earth Invading strange monster from outer space. It was fun to see the evil/strange/alien/menacing LRRR ALSO having a nagging wife at home, giving him a human side for humor's sake. Yet, the joke has been explored by now. Which leaves NDND as just another "Nagging wife" , and there are already lots of them in sitcoms.  As a occasional one-trick-pony character: Sure. But there are far better supporting characters in Futurama eligible to carry a longer plot.

Oh my god! That first picture looks so awsome! The second however, not sure what to think about that...
NO!!! I did never really like his personage... but if they mix him up better I think it'll turn out as a much better episode than before.

Did Fry just give a dinner under the ship and decorated it with...  wtf? Just his colorfull brain^^

So the monkey thing happens in "Fry and Leela's Big Fling"? Interesting. Great pics. big grin

Oh my god! Is official, 7B is gonna be an interesting and crazy thing!

No offence, but we barely know anything about it. Not saying it's gonna be bad, I'm extremely excited too, but every year people are like way too excited when we don't know enough information, then when the season is over they're all like "It was meh, had a lot of stinkers but a few gems" yet beforehand it's like there's a synopsis that says "Fry becomes an alien warrior" and suddenly "OMFG GONNA BE THE BEST THING EVER!" roll eyes

People allow their expectations to be raised too high, which is what causes a lacklustre response when faced with material that doesn't live up to whatever crazy shenanigans they were imagining.

Well,after know the bad news,see these plots made me smile,and yeah I'm happy because the writers remembered that Fry has a life besides Leela,so see an episode about him makes me have good expectations for this season because the variety (also I'm glad to see an episode about The Professor,even if we had one in 7A), I'm not saying that will be the best thing ever  either,just that got all my attention.

And don't worry,I'm not offended smile

If anything the FOX Home Media Division could always do straight to dvd seasons instead of more dvd/tv film four part episodes.

@Danny: Exactly, I expect poop to be flung in that one.

@102: I think June 12th would work as a nice bumped up start date, and they could just air all thirteen on seperate nights.
