Thanks for the upload.

I haven't seen any ads for the final season until now.

Me neither.

Although that's probably because I haven't turned on my TV in months.

As do I, but it's quite unreasonable to not expect at least a few average/bad episodes.

Based on the last three seasons, it's unreasonable to expect more than one great and less then two really disappointing episodes, with the rest being solidly average (and that's not necessarily a good or a bad thing. Average is meh, but it's also not ugh).

I'm interested to see how this all pans out, and I'm actually looking forward to the sense of closure that the last episode should provide, if they've done this right.

Thanks for the video Kataang, some interesting clips in there.

I like the part were Fry walks backwards into the shack labelled "EXPLOSIVES" and it explodes whilst Gus and Dandy Jim just watch on. big grin In fact, I liked all of it. wink

No, that's part of the scene.
The four characters wagered the following bet:

Fry does hold a golf ball in his mouth.
Sean must try to play said ball with his Saxophone, hitting a triangle Leela holds in her mouth with the ball, and make it sound like "Stars and Stripes". That way, the ball will be redirected and must land into the unknown woman's cleavage (because that bet also needs a certain dirty aspect).

In that screencap, the ball was already played, the song was heard, and -to create suspense- the three characters check wether the ball reached it's final destiny.

Also, the characters did cheat, and used a tiny, portable black hole to affect the balls trajectory. The black hole already collapsed fractions of a second before that screencap.
But we still the light as it was drawn towards the whole, creating said colour distortion on Fry's trousers/shirts.

See...we can have a completely normal, logic, everyday-explanation, and do not have to seek such unlikely reasons like "animation errors".

Today on the Countdown is a link to a website that contains a clip from "2-D Blacktop" that we've already seen... hmpf

Right here.

The site has an interview with Billy West as well as the clip, though.

OLOGY: We have to ask: is this really the end of Futurama?

BILLY WEST: Nothing surprises me, I can never be certain. I won't really know if it's the end until the final episode, because I've got to experience it. [Sometimes] they leave a little wiggle room in there, but if it has this finality to it, then I'll know that it's over. I really won't be able to tell until the last show. But I've always said [the show] was too good to not be on television. I think there's still people vying for a stake in the show.

I'm, too, waiting for the last episode aired until saying... "It's probably the end."

Countdown to Futurama: Ultra Guy

Meet Ultra Guy. He’s not the hero New New York needs right now. He might not even be the one it deserves.

Welp, we already know he's a run-down superhero that owns a jewellery shop and is voiced by Maurice LaMarche. I bet Fry goes to him to get an engagement/wedding ring for Leela.

With Leela wearing a ring in the preview material, that seems highly probable.

Are the writers running out of ideas or just intentionally making stupid names for characters?
Still looking forward to seeing "Ultra Guy".

To be fair, the writers do not have a whole Superhero universe with lots of names to take care of.
There is just one hero, and therefore an archetypical name is appropriate.
And -with Superman still considered THE superhero archetype- the name Super/Ultra Man/Guy is as obvious as it is fitting.

Well..I also like the "Billy West" joke in SotC:
They needed a name so obviously sterotypical hillbilly, that ANYONE would it expect to be phony. One of the voice actors actually HAVING such a phony sounding name was a bonuse too big to ignore. And the double meaning of Billy West being a real name in-universe and IRL gave the joke a hilarious double meaning wink

The size and shapes of heads in Futurama is surprisingly inconsistent between characters.

I think looks like Armando from "I Second that Emotion".

Countdown to Futurama: Time Shelter

Quote from: Matt Tobey
In the upcoming Futurama episode, “Meanwhile,” Farnsworth alters the fabric if time with a new invention. Is the Time Shelter pictured here that invention? You will just have to wait or alter the fabric of time yourself to find out.

I'm guessing that Fry and Leela are in that shelter in the swing picture.

This is the same show that names robots based on their function (Hedonism Bot, for example--hell, even Bender is named for what he does), so I don't see how "Ultra Guy" is such a bad name. He's, you know, ultra and stuff.

Anyway, despite not really keeping up with the Countdown and other 7B-related news, I'm starting to get kind of excited for the new season now that it is less than a week away. Like tnuk, I'm looking forward to seeing how ably the writers can wrap this show up in a semi-satisfying, finale-tastic way.

And all the superheroes in Futurama are more or less parodies of the superheroes. Ultra Guy is supposed to sound stupid and overly-bragging superhero name.

I really can't say anything about the time shelter, without colours it's hard to say what's it made of.

My theory is that the shelter will keep you away from time, you stay in there, you are save from time or something... yes, logical no no

Or it's "just" a time machine-like cubicle which can obtain enough energy to stretch "fabric of time" to do a small time travel.
(But your theory is the "function" in all the time machines generally, I think.)

Anyway, that would be more realistic time travelling than the other time machine professor has come up with.
