how are the laughs a year offensive, it's just a little shout out, like they did in that simpsons episode with the millions of homers and one of them was peter griffin
but what family guy did was just wrong, I don't mean in a copyright why I mean in human way

I don't put much stock into a blues "musician" who doesn't play the dobro or harmonica, or at least have backing musicians who do. Or rather, who just takes up "singing blues" as a cute little hobby.

Anywayz...hooray! New Futurama tonight!

Another interview, I'm not even sure if the same interview is posted already.

I'll admit, I let out a hefty sigh when I read that Seymour would be voiced by Seth.

Then I read the description of the episode. This sounds like it could work.

Well after a few minutes of sighing, I'm okay with Seth voicing Seymour. It still bothers me a bit that he'll voice him, but since its just a dream and probably only 1-2 lines of dialogue, it should be good. Hopefully the rest of the episode with the crew going into Fry's dream and the return of the Nibblonians leads this into a really fun and epic episode, especially with the weirdness that could come from Fry's head.

Also, 45 minutes until the double episode premiere. Can't wait.

I must be the only person in the earth who is happy about Seth voicing Seymour,is just ironic how everyone love Jurassic Bark and hate Seth MacFarlane,it's pretty funny in my opinion.

Also I'm huge Seth's fan, I know,his shows can't be the best but come on! he has a good voice.

I just saw a new futurama ad that involved Zoidberg and Marianne sitting in the dumpster, and Zoidberg said "I must be dreaming, I better pinch myself to make sure". He severely cut himself, since he has claws and yells "Ouch, I forgot I was a giant crab!". Kinda weak, i gotta admit.

Two solid episodes. Since 2-D Blacktop turned out to be good, now there's only one episode I'm skeptical about (Assie Come Home).

It seems Sof and I are the only ones who are happy with Seth doing Seymour. I have no problem with him. I like his voice and I like his shows (Except The Cleveland Show, not really into it).

Anywho, I managed to find a place to watch, and I agree, 2-D Blacktop was pretty good. Although I liked the second one a bit better.

New season thing looks good so far, even though I never finished watching episode 14 it because it spazzed out.. Yet to watch the second premiere one though.

It seems Sof and I are the only ones who are happy with Seth doing Seymour. I have no problem with him.

From page one (one page ago):

I think Macfarlane is very capable of doing a good job as Seymour. Though I'm not a fan of his shows, I believe he's still an excellent voice actor.

I have to agree with you there. He's a shitty writer/showrunner, but does some pretty good VO/VA work.

Agreed, Seth MacFarlane is a good voice actor

Seth appearing in Futurama is rather a honor he bestows upon others

Do people even read the previous posts before they decide to post something, or is PEEL turning into the comments section of Youtube?

Ha! I thought you would point that out.
Related to that, I also agree he's very appropriate voice for Seymor. I hadn't said it yet...

I'm not a fan of Family Guy, but I'm not too concerned about Seth MacFarlane voicing Seymour. I doubt it'll be a huge role, and it's not as if he has a hand in the script, so I don't see how bad it can be.

On another note though . . . hasn't MacFarlane been on Futurama before? I'm pretty sure he provided the opening number for ITWGY. Kind of a Frank Sinatra spoof. I remember being surprised to see his name in the credits.

Yes.

His appearance will probably still irk me, but it'll still be funny to see Seymour with Brian's voice for a few seconds, especially if he asks what lady's leg he has to hump to get a dry martini.

Thought so. Do we know which episode Seymour is set to appear in? And why he can talk? I didn't see that mentioned.

(We've opened so many new threads since I was last on PEEL that I'm getting lost. I usually go by what's pinned, but there are news threads everywhere these days.)

Episode is "Game of Tones".
He can talk, because it's Fry's dream.
It was mentioned in some news, posted quite recently here.

Edit - in first page of this thread:
SETH MACFARLANE IS VOICING SEYMOUR, YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT

Also, "Game of Tones" plot revealed!

Quote from: Dan Snierson
the Planet Express crew journeys into Fry’s dreams to pull off a mission in the year 1999. Sarah Silverman also pops up in her old role as Michelle, Fry’s girlfriend from the 20th century.

Guess it makes sense why Seymour is talking then. big grin

Thanks Quantum! I don't know how I missed that - I reread the whole page before I asked! *sigh*

Fry's dreams though? Hmm, that sounds interesting. I wonder how the crew end up in that situation? Accident, or deliberate attempt to fix something wrong with Fry? Either way, it sounds like a promising sci-fi plot, and nostalgia always sucks me in, so I'm looking forward to this one.

This season seems a lot more Fry-focused than 7a. Fry and Leela's Big Fling, Meanwhile, Game of Tones, T : The Terrestial . . .

I think family is ok somtimes the old episodes are amazing and the new ones suck but some of them do have enjoyable qualitys but very few

I doubt they would let him mess futurama up, but he does want family guy to end, he is thinking of doing a theatrical movie

why does family guy get renewed and futurama doesn't

Thanks for the link, LadyBender!

I really liked that clip and found it quite funny. I also like that it seems they'll be keeping the Fry-Leela relationship constant throughout the season.

If the relationship is kept subtle, sweet, and only brought to the foreground in several episodes, I'll be very happy.

Yes, I know. I just meant I'm glad that it seems there will be brief, pleasant reminders that they are in fact a couple throughout the season, including episodes their relationship doesn't play a large part in. I don't need much of that in each episode; I just appreciate quick mentions of the 'ship instead of it being completely ignored in non-shippy episodes. Thank you, though.  smile

Fry eating the earth toy smile classic. Also, wasn't it nice to hear Leela finally say she loved Fry again, directly? Just that perfect touch of subtleness that doesn't take over the entire episode.

Though I am tickled by the way he says "Olive Garden"--and how Bender so easily twists that into the word "love"--there's a stilted quality to Fry's original message that kind of bugs me. It's almost too convenient or something. I don't know; I'm just being unnecessarily nitpick-y.

On a less critical note: From the clip it seems like this episode is (in part) going for a kind of "Godfellas" thing, but with the Fry and Bender roles reversed. That could be interesting.

The "12 laughs a year" calendar in Futurama is imhO more offensive than that scene (and still acceptable).

I guess I'm missing something about the calendar being offensive but either way, I'm pretty sure one of the Family Guy characters (I'm not sure whom) raping Marge on the bottom of the screen oversteps the mark by a fair margin...




What a rotten show Family Guy truly is, that's just gross.

I hope FG is canned next!

I think that's the point, he says it so weirdly so it makes it super easy for Bender to mash it up. It's pretty obvious though, not sure if that's intentional or not.
