So, Nibbler finally got room for 2 creatures in his ship? I wonder why it is all broken in the last image...

I hope too!

So, my guess is that the flashback scenes will show more of Nibbler's (and possibly other Nibblonians') time in the 20th/21st century, before he went to push Fry into the Cryo-Tube.

Quote from: Matt Tobey
How does the universe’s oldest species get around? Judging by this Nibblonian ship drawing from the upcoming Futurama episode “Game of Tones,” it’s in a spacecraft as adorable as they are.

With all the sudden re-quoting of images every three posts that's going on at the moment, nobody thought to quote this off the bottom of the last page? Shame on you all.

Anyhow, the Nibblonian technology looks very much like the stuff we've seen before. This pleases the continuity nerd in me, and also leads me to think that maybe there might be some good stuff coming up after all. Nibbler's species making an onscreen appearance in their role as the protectors of the universe is usually a sign of something good.

I'm wondering if the battered look of the ship is simply what you get when you park it behind an NNY dumpster for more than seven minutes.

I can't see you or at least 75% of the people on this forum giving the episode more than a 7 out of 10 (at a push), every year people get all optimistic about stuff revealed on the Countdown yet after the new season has finished they deem it the worse thing to have ever been produced by the Futurama staff. roll eyes

I still can't believe Mike Rowe is in charge of writing such an episode.

He has written a few stinkers; "2-D Blacktop" looks promising, however. Let's hope he can bump up his reputation with these last 2 episodes. big grin

Get used to it Snake because he isn't going to change or go anywhere.  The rules here don't apply to him.

We're simply having a discussion here. The person you disagree with is allowed to say you're wrong if you fail to produce a more convincing argument than they do. Everything's been civil enough so far, from what I see.
I understand that, which is why I am proud to be a PEELER. I am just surprised that totalnerduk is so determined to proving DannyJC13 wrong. I posted that picture out of poking fun at it, nothing serious.

You're right. I think I'll make up my mind right now not to rate any episode higher than a five, because I hate everything and just want to spoil it all for everybody else.

To be fair, not many people hated last season, except Cyber Turnip. It was generally more of a "pffffffftttt" reaction.

And I enjoyed last season and will always defend it, but come on, most of episode polls have at least a 7 as the majority vote, often higher.

futurefreak greatly despised it too, I believe. I think Spacedal11 disliked it too, although that might've been Season 6. And the general reaction amongst most posters was disaproval and annoyance.

(I for one still love and enjoy new Futurama as much as the old, just putting that out there.)

True, 2D Blacktop does look more promising than his earlier work, since most of Mike's work focused on girly relationship kinda humor, it would be good to change the focus again. I really liked "Fry Am The Eggman", and Mike wrote that.

FATEM was a great episode, not too keen on Doohan 6 and it's locals (McZongo was cool), but overall a solid episode.

Those Nibblonian ships look very promising. As tnuk said, I'm pleased with the continuity, and I'd love to see the Nibblonians as the universe's protectors again.

I really hope they explain about Leela being "The Other," too, but I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they've just chosen to "forget" about that.

Also, I personally didn't dislike 7a in general, there were just not any episodes that could be considered one of my favorites.

Indeed.
Though I assume the locals are not really to blame on Mike, but rather the designers.
The whole plot would also have worked on a world inhabited by aliens with just enough recognisable Scottish traits.

This episode seems one to look forward too.
Possibly some flashbacks maybe thrown in.
But to stay on the topic we are on.
FATEM was a good episode, kinda strange how Fry wanted to save Mr. Peppy when in TBBOI he went on with the mission. Still was overall good as an exception of an abysmal Season 6.

I think I'm the only one who finds FATEM really forgettable. It's not bad by any means, but I really can't rate it highly.

However, "Game of Tones" is now my most anticipated episode. Some of you may know that "The Why of Fry" is my favourite episode, so anything that looks even remotely related erects my future-boner. smile

Today Comedy Central showed some new commercials for the final season of Futurama with some new footage from 7b. From what I can remember, they showed a clip of Fry screaming at the mutated Leela from the preview with Bender saying ''Oh that's nasty'' at the end, Farnsworth and some of the crew staring at a raceship from 2-D Blacktop, and Leela and Hermes staring at a fire with Leela saying something that I can't remember. Does anyone have any links to the new commercials?

I'm actually excited that "Game" will answer why Leela is the other "ONE", and why/how her and Fry are destined to save the universe.

MEH... better not get my hopes up high.

I'd prefer it if "Meanwhile" resolved the "Other" story arc, and this one was a build up of sorts.

Oh yeah, and I'm keen for some more talking Nibbler.

Wow, "Game of Tones" is going to be a super-episode with seymor, nibblonians and timetravel/flashbacks. Or turns out it's nothing spectacular with too many plots...
Anyway, I'm especially looking forward to this.

I second that, "The Why of Fry" was my favourite episode, but now it's #2 on my list, anyhow GOT still excites me. big grin

Today's preview:

Look alive, Nibblonian aficionados! Today we’ve got a still from the upcoming Futurama episode, “Game of Tones,” featuring not just Nibbler, but another Nibblonian by the name of Digby.

That shape of Nibblonian seems to differ a lot from other Nibblonians previously.
And looks like they're drunk or something. That could be fun.

I believe that's Leela's cankle in the frame.

I gotta ask, why is the episode called "Game of Tones". It has been three days of images, one of which was featured in the season preview trailer, and virtually no information has been released regarding the plot. At least it's nice to get a Nibblonian prophecy epic just a few episodes before the *sniff* series finale.

Looky here, these are tweets taken from @MTVGeek's account earlier today:

Quote from: @MTVGeek
Currently in a conference call with #Futurama showrunner David X. Cohen about the final(?) season of the @ComedyCentral series.

On #Futurama series finales, Cohen says that having done four so far, they've kind of gotten good at them.

The next #Futurama finale will involve Fry and Leela's wedding (for real!). Also, Seymour will return (as will your tears).

Looking at #Futurama's next three-part episode, the show will homage 70's and 80's Saturday morning cartoons in "Saturday Morning Fun Pit"

Also returning to #Futurama this season: Calculon and the Robot Devil! Plus Adam West, Seth MacFarlane, Sarah Silverman, and Larry Bird.

On #Futurama ending: "We're less depressed this time." Cohen says the end wasn't a surprise but it's always disappointing.

When asked about the changes in how people watched TV has affected the show, Cohen credits DVD sales, cable TV with keeping #Futurama alive

On a theatrical #Futurama movie, they've discussed it internally, but when they think about it, the show ends up back on TV.

While it's up to Fox what would happen with a #Futurama movie, Cohen thinks @kickstarter and crowd support could make it happen.

Cohen says #TheSimpsons changed his perspective on animation, going from a fan in grad school to a writer four years later.

On potential #Futurama spinoffs, Cohen says they've talked about a Zapp and Kif show. They've also wanted to do a standalone ep with the two

Again on the end of #Futurama Cohen says: "If it is the end, we think it'll be our best ever last season ever."

A certain The Office gif would fit nicely here.

Digby for president!
I love seeing Nibbler and a friend get drunk.

Everything DXC said was interesting, I think if the show comes back one last time it should be a movie for cinemas that picks up years after the show ends.

Sad about Macfarlane returning, hopefully he'll only sing another tune.
The only thing he should do is sing, period, that pompous jerk bugs me.
Roger is also the only character of his I don't hate, so maybe it'll be a Roger cameo, since this is the first we've heard of him coming back?
