Hello!

Would anyone happen to know of the top of their heads which commentary features John DiMaggio doing a Kennedy sort of mumbling/stammering impression. I made me laugh every time but i forget the episode.

Thanks for any help.

Fun On a Bun was indeed an excellent episode.

Moving on, in All The Presidents Heads, when they all turned British did anyone notice how small Fry's feet were in those shoes? 

Also, in Bender's Game or maybe it was Freewill Hunting did Wernstrom father Walt and Larry?  We learned of Ignar's parterntity, did we know of Walt's and Larry's too?  Is Wernstrom their father?

I'm pretty sure that we know he's at least one of their fathers.

I'm pretty sure it was alluded he was their father in a flashback scene, possibly Bender's Game

Does information about Meanwhile really need to be spoilered at this time?

Some members here have outright admitted to not having seen it yet. Not everyone is in a country that's up-to-date with Futurama, or has Comedy Central or access to downloads where they live. It's just the considerate thing to do.
Alright then, I just don't get why Meanwhile is singled out

That could be true.

How come since the Mutants got freed from living in the sewers after The Mutants Are Revolting, they still live in the sewers?

According to Munda in the episode 'Zapp Dingbat', they simply preferred to live down there.

Their houses and things are down there. And their mutant community.

Now, it can be thought of as something of a mutant district. As time progresses, some of them will likely begin to live on the surface, but it wouldn't be an overnight change.

Yeah, they have a whole community and way of life going on down there. Nobody said integration was going to happen overnight just because it's no longer illegal.

My dad has been starting to watch Futurama with me since Season 7 started. He watched a few episodes from 7A, and every episode from 7B. He thought it was a decent season, with hits and misses ahoy. I guess I can consider him a good fan, since he hated episodes like "T: The Crap", "Forty Percent Leadbelly", and "Saturday Morning Fun Pit" (I liked SMFP, actually. He laughed just as much as I did when it aired so it's kind of weird to hear him say that he hated it). Although he wasn't crazy for episodes like "Inhuman Torch" and "Game of Tones".

Lately, we've been rewatching the series and just got done Season 1. He said it was like Season 7B, it was good, but there was alot of hits and misses. We're making our way to Season 2 soon. I think he'll like it, since Season 2 is a really good season in my opinion, and used to be dubbed the best Season before the revival, after which everyone started saying Season 4 is the best season.

He praised "Assie Come Home" alot, as well as "Fry and Leela's Big Fling" until "Meanwhile" aired, which he dubs as his favorite episode.

Also, before rewatching the series, I've shown him other great episodes like "Parasites Lost", The Devils Hands", The Late Phillip J Fry, and pretty much most Classic episodes from Season 3-4. I never got an opinion from those eps, but I did catch him rewatching TLPJF one time, eheh big grin

Solid, it's really cool that you and your dad can connect and spend hours together watching Futurama. Making memories!

Maybe you could try watching one of his favorite series with him, from years gone by. I bet that would be pretty special for both of you.

I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic, since this could easily be fit into a offtopic thread. I put this in here since the thread labeled "General Futurama Discussion", and this is kind of about Futurama (or at least involves it).

I've done that before as well. I will watch The Sopranos with him whenever it's airing (which is rare anymore), which is a pretty great show. I also watch "King of Queens" and "Seinfeld" with him whenever I catch him watching it. Both aren't too bad shows, but sometimes have some pretty good gags.

I've seen parts of 'King of Queens,' here and there, it isn't terrible.

Want to make this as civil as possible.  You know, PEELers, I never wanted Leela to be completely impervious.   It would not upset me in the least if Bender took credit for something heroic she had done.   Bender is really my favorite, Leela is my second.  It only pisses me off when she gets singled out and gets in trouble all be herself and Fry and Bender have to help her.  Like if she got framed for a crime she didn't commit or something like that.

I think it's better for Leela to get into some kind of trouble along with someone else.  Like what happened in episodes such as Fear of a Bot Planet, A Pharorah to Remember,  Insane In the Mainframe, and The Thief of Baghead.  Also in comic issues such as Issue #2, and issue #58 and #64.  And, I have _never_ wanted Futurama to be my way and my way only.  I have never wanted Futurama to be the kind of show where Fry gets humiliated all the time and Leela and Bender have to help him.  That would get boring after a while.  If you all would read my fanfics, you would know that.  Maybe I made up ideas like that when I was mad about real life things.  All the characters should be treated as equals (for the most part they are) and not singled out because Leela is a cyclops or Fry is a moron. 

Hope this breaks the mold with you people.

No, it never was.

As Columbo once said, 'one more thing'.  Now I am not trying to do anything here.  Just asking.  Anyone remember the Cast Futurama in Movies as TV thread?  Why was it some casted Fry as the hero characters?  Examples such as Indiana Jones, James Bond, Finn from Adventure Time, Ash from Pokemon, Jack Bauer,  Rocky Balboa, Sherlock Holmes, Rambo, Mike Hammer, Spiderman, Popeye, Link, Hercules, and Superman.  

Bender was always casted as a villain such as Dr. Doom, Blofeld, The Green Goblin, Hannibal Lechter,  Moriarty, Gannon, Darth Vader, Jafar, The Joker, Bowser,  or Bluto from Popeye?  Sure Bender is evil, but that doesn't mean he should be casted as a villain. These are just examples.

And Leela was always casted by some as a girlfriend such as Lois Lane, Mary Jane, Princess Peach, Princess Bubblegum, Audrey Raines, Zelda, and Alex Walker.  Also, Leela is even casted as a villainous role like Jesse from Pokemon.   Who are fans going to cast Leela as next?  Mallory Knox?  Smurfette, or Bella Swan from Twilight?  or Barbara from Night Of The Living Dead?  

Not only that, when some speculate about casting Futurama in Famliy Guy, fans always cast Leela as Meg.  Come on!  Leela playing the role of an abused teenage girl?  That's a low blow!


Fry is absolutely nothing like any of those movie, cartoon, and TV Show heroes, and Leela is nothing like those girlfriends.   Just because that female is a love interest Leela has to be casted as her?   Even though Leela is nothing like them?  Just because Fry is the main character, he should be casted as the hero?    Just because Bender is a bad boy, that means he has to be casted as the villain?

Could it be some fans probably wish Leela was like those girlfriends so she would never beat up and hurt Fry, and respect him?

Well, that's all I'm saying.....

The thing is, you get personally offended when Leela is singled out but not when any of the other characters do. That kind of stuff is what makes it look so heavily like you want Leela to be impervious.

Where was the outrage when Fry was stranded on another planet and Bender had to rescue him? Where was the outrage when Bender was stuck in Robot Hell and Fry and Leela had to rescue him?

Exactly. Futurama is a versatile ANY one of the main characters can serve as the protagonist (or antagonist) if that particular episode's plot calls for it. Pretty much every member of Planet Express has been in peril at some point, and has had the chance to play hero at some other point. Character dynamics, character pairings/groupings etc. can all potentially shift from episode to episode. Leela and the Genestalk was just another take on this.

Yes, they all get singled out and it's mostly based on their unique chracteristics. Leela is singled out in LatG as she's a mutant. It's not like she is even shown as helpless in the episode and the rescuing is not main aspect, there is other themes that are essentially more important. If there wasn't characters singled out, there wouldn't be as much closer looks to characters or as much variety in episodes.

To.

Post it here (click on the word "here" that appears in blue. That's a link that you can follow to the right place to post fan art.

This is the "general" Futurama thread, in the "general" Futurama subforum. Don't clog it up with pictures. It's not your refrigerator. Pictures you drew belong in the fan art section (or possibly in the trash, depending on whether or not you're any good).

Listening to them now. Will edit this post with any interesting trivia I hear starting now.

Forty Percent Leadbelly

 *When Bender was walking across the railroad tracks, it was supposed to have gone on 3x the length, with trains keep missing Bender.
 *Bender switched himself with the duplicate while they were attached by octopus’s.
 *The selling out song was voice recorded with a big base note ringing the entire time, shaking everything in the room (cans, pens).

 2-D Blacktop

 *The start of the episode was actually supposed to have had a lot of long scenes for a delivery to Ms. Aster’s Astroid to deliver the chandelier. This was to demonstrate why the ship was dangerous and the problems with it.
 *The ship crew was based on the one’s in the Fast and Furious movies.
 *Eric Rogers thought of the Minx backstory joke….get him guys. Wasn’t that funny to the writers until he called it unspoken verbal abuse.
 *There was an idea for the 2D plot before this episode where the crew goes diving for treasure and find a 2nd dimention by going into a bathosphere, but the writers couldn’t think of how to make it work quite right.

T.: The Terrestrial

*There was going to be more statues cut to such as the Holocaust Deniers Memorial.
*Lrrr was supposed to have been interested in other modern TV shows like Hot in Cleveland and Downtown Abbey. He was also looking forward to the series premiere of Allen Gregory (why was that not put into the episode!?)
*The sacred weed thing was supposed to have been expanded upon, including Omicron Persei 8 being OP8.
*The scene with the crew sneaking onto Omicron Persei 8 was supposed to be longer, with Hermes dressing up like an Omicronian and having his dreadlocks being horns.
*Fry was supposed to get addicted to actual candy, but after about 10 minutes, it became turds, then it was all downhill from there.
*Matt shows his dislike for poop jokes here, refusing to have the poop be brown here, or in the sewers.
*Besides the you are my hero line at the end, all of the voice recording stuff from Bender was actually Billy West’s original recording being altered around with.
*There was more Ndnd lines that were cut out.
*There was going to be a long backstory with Lrrr as a young boy who also had a human pet, Neil Armstrong VIII. He kept him until he was 50, where he got all cranky and horny, so his father forced him to kill and eat him.
*There was going to be a song at the end called ‘’Turn Out Your Butt Light’’….yeah. By Butt Turd Overload/Neil Diamond Phillip.
