I know some of you choose to download the episode directly from the networks somehow, and that is your choice. But please don't post a picture of the episode on the front page of PEEL, before Sunday. Some of us choose not to download the episode and wait. And then some of those, me for one, don't like spoilers of ANY kind, speically pictures. I request no further pictures be shown, specially for the next episode.

No offence or anything, but this is just stupid. Whoever selects these pictures does a damn good job, as I have yet to see one that has revealed any important details of an episode. I mean, geez - even the covers of the Futurama DVD's spoil more sections of the episodes than the screenshots posted on PEEL. I respect everyone's right of not wanting an episode to be spoiled - but to an extent. This is just ridiculous. If seeing a small non-spoiling picture from an upcoming episode is that upsetting for you, that's just sad. Sorry, but that's my opinion.

The picture is going to change a total of 1 more time. That's it. If it means that much to you that you don't see a screenshot, don't show up from next Saturday thru after you see the finale.

I don't see how one picture can spoil an episode, the description of the show in the TV guide would be a far bigger spoiler or do you avoid that too?

The name of the episode is a bigger spioler...for instance the farme grab for "bender should not be allowed on TV" is a picture of bender on TV..."didnt see that one comin"

Exactly. The pictures are in no way spoiling anything. Hell, even Futurama COMMERCIALS spoil more than the small framegrab at the front of Peel.

Not like there ARE any Futurama commercials, but still - if there were...

This is the same guy who talks about some underground futurama world, and how the leela zone is conspiring against him and there is some truth to be known isnt it?

The pictures have never been spoilers. As Mikey said earlier - it was pretty obvious that an episode entitled "Bender Should Not Be Allowed On TV" would contain Bender on TV, so a screenshot of Bender on TV wouldn't be spoiling anything.

Looking back at all the other screenshots that have been posted (keep in mind PEEL uses the same preview screenies as CGEF), I can't say that ANY of the previous screenshots have been spoiling. For example, Spanish Fry shows Fry camping. Okay, so it wasn't exactly obvious that Fry would be camping by the title - but if you watch the episode, you see them camping in the first 30 seconds. Another example is 300 Big Boys - which showed Bender holding a $300 note. Holy hell, with spoilers like that, why bother watching the episode?!

How is one picture of Bender acting on a tv set spoiling the episode? It's not possible for one picture to explain the entire plot of a 22 minute episode. If anything then the episode title carries more spoiler information than one framegrab. Will you also be upset, if the preview picture for "Devils Hands Are Idle Playthings" show Beelzebot?

Guys, Don't waste your time even responding to this thread. This has to be one of the stupidest threads I have ever seen. Assassin, I have a quick and simple solution to your problem. You don't like it. Don't come to the site.
