I've been wondering the same thing, since Sarge posted that the first time.

What I've come up with is:

Hope it made sense.

really? i guess that i saw somewhere a picture of Leela and Amy in a hall with Amy holding a picture of a guy , i guessed that that pic was from "Idle hands"

(next one in spoiling me "idle hands" will be runover by a 88`grey Orion)

Teral's theory would make more sense if it weren't for the plot's "Her strange dreams lead her to believe Fry is still alive" line.

Uh, I hate to rain on everyone's parade, but I think Sarge was just messing with you guys.

This is "The Sting."

Why? A. Space bees equal space suits. I seriously doubt that in "Devil's Hands...", Fry and Leela would be outside the ship, on a normal delievery. B. Look at Fry's helmet...it looks like honey, or beeswax, covering the top of his head.

This is "Devil's Hands..."

Why? It's Leela realizing that Fry loved her, and something happened to him. The way the pictures are set up, this way it makes a hell of a lot more sense.

They could be from the same episode as well. We just can't tell that, we are merely guessing.

Maybe they're both from The Sting.
Fry's gonna die in The Sting, so the picture makes sense.

1. Like I said before.
2. How do we know that Fry is going to die?

The robot devil works in mysterious ways perhaps?
Aside from that, we don't know. We don't know. Can't you wait until the episodes are shown?

Nor me. And then Fox would advertise that there were 'New never before seen!' episodes on it.. ...actually, hold on a minute, 'Fox' and 'advertise' in the same sentence? They probably wouldn't then...

Gocad:  "I wouldn't be surprised if the DVDs come first..."

Are you kidding?  They're not going to release the dvd's before they all show on the air, we'd actually be HAPPY if they did that.  Plus, they haven't even released season 2 in region 1 yet, and I jump up and down and throw a fit every time I think about it. (just kidding, I really just grit my teeth and vow revenge)

To bumblebeetheta:  I think you've been watching a *little* too much anime.

ever considedr ascention?

in stargate sg1 an interesting concept is that of ascention where people who walk toward the great path or whatever die and become some kind of energy being or whatever capable of controling nature and such. just a thought, it's how they killed off daniel jackson clumsiest most awkward anchiologist this side of the gate.

Start - everything goes back to normal ordeal.  Well, for shows like Beavis and Butthead (which has no real continuing storyline), it works.  For something like King of the Hill (which the characters, like Joseph, changes over the course of the series), it doesn't.  Futurama has a story line so it would have to have some sort of explanation.

should. you can't just kill them all, or set them in the future for no reason, although in this show it is hte future.

continuality is all i ever wanted out of it, and well looks like we will never get that. no two part shows, no real references to past shows other than the obscure background shot, or the nonchalant line spoken by somone about something you wouldn't get if you didn't know alot of the episodes really well.

would have been nice to see fry go insane in one episode, and i mean snap due to his constant rejection and just leave or somthing forcing leela to either get questioned by someone, or questoin herself and what fry means to her.

could have made a cool episode. maybe the sting does that, could happen.

she makes a mistake, kills fry because of it, questons what fry really means to her. blah blah blah, you get the idea.

Did you miss The Why of Fry? They referenced Love's Labours Lost in Space, Space Pilot 3000, The Day The Earth Stood Stupid, Roswell that Ends Well... Luck of the Fryish, Jurassic Bark, and Anthology of Interest I all referenced Space Pilot 3000. Amazon Women in the Mood referenced A Flight to Remember. And it looks as though The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings will reference both Hell is Other Robots and Parasites Lost. There's plenty of continuity on the show.

continuality preserved if Fry making a book of all the things he can write to show he loves leela, her burning it, he snaps and goes insane, we never see fry again.

leela doesn't really care because she is a spiteful self absorbled one eyed bitch on wheels.

now that that is done, back to what i was really going to say. slight references? that is crap! i have seen almost every episode and i have yet to see more than the slight scene, like this from time keeps on slipping

HERMES: MAybe she fell in love with you because you are a fantastic lover.

AMY (QUIETLY): No.

clear reference to put your head on my shoulder i know, but that is about it.

you would think that by now leela would have come to a point of conflict with fry or amy over why she never even gives him the time of day, but sleeps with Zapp, space roach guy, and falls in love with a doctor for no reason other than the eye thing she has changed anyway.

never clicked with me what kind of personality the writters gave leela.

a heated argument that trails through all the past mistakes of leela as she points out that Amy is not exactly a nun either would be cool.

you've completely missed Leela's character. She's not the bitch you make her out to be. there's reasons she reacts as she does. Reasons that have been given by many peelers on several different threads.

I have to take issue with this. If you want to see a show with no continuity, watch Voyager. Futurama had fantastic continuity, especially with the hidden arcs (and it was rare that a contradiction to previously stated facts was made, the ST and Wheel issues exempted). The sort of continuity which you are talking about, which I believe is similar to DS9 continuity, would never have worked on Futurama, what with FOX screwing up the airing order, and leaving months between airings. Personally I'm not a fan of "soap opera" continuity - if you miss an episode, you tend to get completely lost in the plot.
