Yeah, I completely agree about that. I never took it to be anything hugely significant. A possible set up for a future episode, sure, but also very easily just Nibbler referring to her being Fry's romantic interest or simply "the other" person from 1,000 years in the future in their Nibblonian prophecy due to her looking after Nibbler and essentially being his "in" with Fry.

There's so many ways to interpret it and a lot of them don't suggest anything hugely significant.

Leela might have already filled the role of "the other". She is, after all, the one who saved Nibbler way back in 1ACV04. "The other" may have been the code name for the person who would bring him close to "the mighty one".

But in Bender's Game, it was revealed that Nibbler was left on Vergon 6 by mistake. He was inadvertently introduced to Leela, and inadvertently saved by her. He couldn't have seen it coming, neither. Cause as he said in "Why of Fry", his species lack the ability to time travel.

But it would make sense that over the years, the Nibblonians have gotten smarter and smarter just like we have. And it would make sense that Nibbler wouldn't travel back in time, no matter how important. The proof for that lies in BBS.

So however Fry is put into his mother's dreams in 7ACV23, I don't think it's that much of a complaint/mind twister. I wouldn't go off to say that it's lazily just slapped in there, either.

Because after all, the Nibblonians are Twice as Advanced as the people of Earth. And in Futurama's New New York City, things are pretty advanced.  laff

Good point. I forgot about that.

Well... I don't think that's relevant at all. He knew that Fry would be the only one who could save the universe from the brain spawn, so the Nibblonians clearly have some kind of ability to see the future.

Yeah, true indeed. But if he had known that he could have been stranded on Vergon 6 , he wouldn't have gotten himself distracted and gotten himself stranded there. Also, I don't think it was Nibbler who predicted the evil brain spawn taking over the universe thing. He said "his people fortold it" which presumably meant the grand council.  

Also, he wouldn't go to as far as travel to the past though. That was established in BBS. In a dream, possibly. There's no harm being done there.

I actually had that same though the other day, and I think it could go either way at this point. I still don't buy that the Nibblonians had enough investment in Fry's love life or personal life to have given Leela the name "the other" JUST because they end up together. It doesn't have any bearing on the episodes when Fry's special abilities came into play. But yeah, it certainly isn't something that I felt required much more elaboration. It almost seems like a line they wrote in so they could leave the door open for a future installment in the brain spawn/Nibblonian saga without having anything further planned.

And yeah Gorky, I was speaking entirely in regards to Spanish Fry's lack of importance in the show's mythology. It is still an absolutely hilarious episodes, and one of my favourites for sure. smile

Yeah.

Also, is anybody else here expecting the PEELer "ericisbacchus" to come back here soon, and tease us about how he's got a DVD copy of Meanwhile, similar to how he had a DVD copy of Reincarnation last year?

I can bet tons of money he'll be here to show us the DVD, and make us envy him about it real soon.

I always assumed that the term "The Other" referred to the fact that Leela is the other person who knew Nibbler could speak (before blanking her memory, obviously). I never really considered it a possibility that Leela had a bigger role in the Nibblonian story.

The implication is that they have some sort of prophecy and those things tend to be fairly vague. It's completely possible that the prophecy intended for him to be left on Vergon 6, but the actual event still happened by mistake - and Leela was still "the other" because she helped facilitate him getting close to Fry and so forth.

Possibly, Cyber-T. Possibly....

Also, I'm currently watching the futurama fanarama marathon right now.

Number 10 was Amazon Women. They used the EDITED VERSIONS OF THE EPISODES. Disappointing. The editing of this episode was nothing really significant. You'd have to watch the unedited version like alot to realize some things are edited.

Number 9 is Reincarnation. They took out the god space entity part. The best part in my opinion. I was so pissed. It's pretty edited. For example, the montage with Fry's music stops for no reason, even though the montage wasn't edited one bit. And Action Delivery Force has a commercial in between it. That's such BS.

Number 8 is The Sting. Not too many significant differences, except for the beheading machine scene is cropped out.

Number 7 is Godfellas. Haven't been paying much attention to this one, but I think they may have edited the Helper part!

Number 6 is The Farnsworth Parabox.

Number 5 is Roswell that Ends Well. Oh my god, they edited the hell out of this episode! frown

Number 4 is The Late Phillip J. Fry.

Number 3 is Luck of the Fryrish.

Number 2 is The Devils Hands are Idle Playthings. Took away the good beginning with Fry and Bender that I thought made the episode 10% awesome.

Number 1 is Jurassic Bark.


Editing is over.

I hope #1 is either Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings or  The Why of Fry.

^The professor says he'll run some tests on Leela to determine if Fry's really still alive and if her brain is acting as a "five-pound Ouija board." The "test" actually ends up being a guillotine, though, that almost beheads Leela (all in her dream world, of course).

What he means to say is that, in syndication/reruns, episodes of certain shows are trimmed for time by certain networks in the US, and inconsequential moments like that are generally the first to go, regardless of how hilarious they are.

It's a sucky practice and generally doesn't happen outside of the US (censorship-based cuts aside, of course).

When comedy central said things like "Futurama will be gone before you know it" they were right these final episodes are going by too fast

I just can't believe that as of Friday of next week, Futurama will officially be over. It's crazy- I got into the show at the start of this year, and now it's ending near the end of the same year! It's gonna suck not having any new shows to look forward to seeing, but I guess I'll just have to watch every episode ten more times again to ease the pain.

That's 140 episodes at about 23 minutes each... viewed ten times each... you've got 536 hours of viewing to do, which is well over 20 days straight if there's no time taken off for sleep or church or pooping. Godspeed, Mister M_R_M.

Well, Stench and Stenchibility will be on in an hour. I'm more exited now about the episode than I was originally, now that I've heard that it could be emmy-worthy. But who can be sure if that's true. I'm sure this will be at least a mediocre episodee, although I hope they can prove me wrong!

I saw the first 2 acts of Stench and Stenchability. Saving the 3rd one for when it airs.

It was great. I was pleasantly surprised.

The beginning felt a bit rushed. But it gets alot better as you progress. It's up there with Game of Tones. Some of the jokes kind of suck, like we saw in the preview vids. And there's a bit too many Zoidberg smells jokes.

Well, the episode does revolve around Zoidy having an odor, at least according to the Infosphere, so the smell jokes are kind of inevitable.

Now there's only 30 minutes till airing time- Grab your Zoidberg toy and your Vomit Bag!

↑ we're not allowed to give links to websites that stream Futurama, cartoonlover27, as those sites hurt the show's TV ratings and DVD sales.
 May I suggest using a Google search, though? Be careful not to go to any fake websites that claim to have shows, but are really just virus traps.
