It's not opinion, it's fact. You haven't even seen the late-90s episodes, so how would you know?

Yeah actually I have Stum. And it is an opinion, so get your facts straight.

So why would you need to watch the 90s episodes then, if you'd already seen them?

I said I haven't seen most of them, but I have seen some. Can you just not bother me about my opinion, and stop spamming this thread?

Alright, then.

LMP, since MRM put up the picture of the Futurama cast in yellow. I actually thought he did it quite well.

It would've been cool to see Ben again.  And whatever became of baby URL.    Heard somewhere that if the show had another season planned, that Ben would've been in an episode.  Also, Billy West once said that there was another season planned that's why he believes the show isn't dead.


What would the characters be for Halloween?  Since it's that time of year again.

It certainly looked a lot better than a picture Quantum Neutrino Field (I think?) put up of Farnsworth in yellow. That picture was the wrong shade of yellow, anyway.

Yeah actually I have Stum. And it is an opinion, so get your facts straight.

The animation of seasons 1 and 2 is noticeably different, though again, it's all an indication of its time. A primetime animated show of this nature really hadn't been done on this scale before, of course there's going to be some shakiness in the very beginning. It was still beyond cutting edge for late 80's/early 90's!

And yes, any statement of "X is crappy" or "X is better" is an opinion, children. roll eyes

Back on topic: I think that, visually speaking, it'll work regardless of what skin tone they go with (they did Simpson-ize Jay Sherman in season 6, after all), though I would personally prefer it if they kept the Futurama characters in their original palette.

Also, Billy West once said that there was another season planned that's why he believes the show isn't dead.

I'm sure it wasn't "planned" so much as the writers just having a few more ideas. After all, when the show originally came back last time, we got satirical episodes on iPhones and gay marriage almost right off the bat, so clearly they hadn't all been on the back-burner that long. roll eyes

Yeah, I hope they won't be "yellowed", but if they just go to past and will be in the "same universe" (and I'm afraid that might be the case), then they'll have to be fitted to that.

It certainly looked a lot better than a picture Quantum Neutrino Field (I think?) put up of Farnsworth in yellow. That picture was the wrong shade of yellow, anyway.
No, I haven't bothered to try that. I think you mean this.

One of your first posts on this forum was chewing me out for dismissing someone's opinion about The Simpsons (that it was still good).


What a lot of people need to remember that animation refers to how things physically move and so forth as opposed to how nice a still image might look.
With that in mind, seasons 1 and 2 of The Simpsons are far more expressive than the HD era of the show, and arguably contain better animation because of it. They're also sloppy and "crappy" looking so some might say they look worse.

On the other hand, the HD era is all very precise and due to the high number of digital techniques employed, some parts end up looking very stiff - almost like Flash animation. Look at Maggie shaking fists at Baby Gerald in the HD opening sequence for a good example of this.
It's cleaner which means that some might prefer it, but it's also very stiff and artificial which means that some might not.

And, I don't think that anyone can deny that the physical transfers of episodes look lovely now and much better than they used to in the standard-definition era of seasons 1-2, but that's a different story entirely.

I agree. Still images from new Simpsons episodes often look quite nice, but they don't in motion.

I loved it and thought it was pretty much perfect. A beautiful emotional story with a fantastic sci-fi plot, and hilarious all at the same time. Truly Futurama firing on all cylinders, and definitely the best out of the 4 "possible last ever" episodes written. smile

The Professor dies in the middle of the episode.

I wonder if they were planning to bring him back if they got an 8th season or if that was meant to be the end for him.

Roberto murders the entire gang, then drinks tea with Nixon. Meanwhile, Zapp bangs Kif without his consent.

I don't think that any series finale for any show could possibly top "Meanwhile". smile

I assume if they came back (and this is genuinely a spoiler, so please don't read until you've
seen the episode, Shiny):

Well, he's already 160, maybe it's good to let him go. I wouldn't have wanted him to become crazy, senile man repeating same lines over and over again, when hearing something even remotely good. frown

I'd assume as much, too. I was just trying to mix false spoiler info with real spoiler info in order to confuse Shiny.

You've succeeded.

I didn't read any spoilers because I would like to see the episode for myself, but I finally watched "The Sting," and thought it was great.  smile

I'd say that you should try and watch every episode before watching Meanwhile. That way, you get the full 'This is the very last Episode' experience.

Alright, it's settled then! Grab Shiny, we'll strap her up to a chair and make her watch every episode A Clockwork Orange-style. She'll be all caught up in just over two days (if she doesn't sleep)! tongue

Is Hermes supposed to be the only normal one of the bunch?  Think about it.  He's the only character who's married, has a kid, and has made something of himself, and the most successful. 

All the other characters have their flaws, but it seems like Hermes is the only sane one of the bunch.  Him and maybe Scruffy, too.   I've always liked Hermes's character.

Given the extent of his anal-retentiveness, I wouldn't exactly call Hermes "normal."

Well, In every fiction show, there's got to be a 'straight man', or a completely normal character, who's normality is used to enhance how unusual the event taking place in the episode is.
 In the earlier seasons, say season 1 and some of 2, Fry was the straight man, but over time, he became more and more quirky, which sort of shifted the straight man duty to Hermes. I'm not sure if that's how it actually happened, but that's how it seems.
