I doubt he would give his real email address, he would instantly be flooded with fan letters and spam.

I thought it was just davidcohen@aol.com beacause he only put the X in for his futurama/simpsons credit.

But there could be another David Cohen who uses aol, but there wouldn't be a David X. Cohen. Possible.

Lousy newbies. I remember when David X. Cohen posted to the Futurama newsgroup! And then I IMed him.

...so yes, that's his "real" email address. I put real in quotation marks, because that's probably not his usual, personal address, but a secondary account used for the millions of annoying fan emails.

I thought it was just a joke when I heard it in the commentary but I suppose it could just be a  secondary account. What about Maurice LaMarche's email address, mlthebrain@aol.com. Is that one real or "real"?

Also, if you'd like Patric Verrone's email address, just start bashing "That's Lobstertainment".

From the TL audio commentary:

Cohen: "Hey, this is a good episode."
Verrone: "Let me point something out. This one is roundly considered by the news groups mavens as the worst episode ever."
Cohen: "What!?"
Verrone: "Yes, indeed it is .... "
Groening: "But they say that about every episode."
Verrone: "No. That's true of The Simpsons, but not true of Futurama. In fact one of the websites, I think GotFuturama.com, which rates the episodes, rated this one. On a scale of 100, I think it got, like, a 58."
Cohen: "Why?"
Verrone: "They don't like it."
Moore: (sarcastic)"Well, good job, Patric."
... [snip] ...
Verrone: "So, the episode got a lot of very negative comments. And there was one guy who just continously bashed it, every opputunity he that he could. Regardless of if the thread had something to do with, you know, buying converter boxes or whatever. But ... so he just said, "this was terrible, and the writer is bad and everything about it is awful". And so I wrote him ... I send him an email saying, "What didn't you like about it?" He wrote back, and I have the emails and they were timed about 50 seconds apart. He wrote back emmidiately to say: "Oh, it was okay. I'm sorry. I thought it was actually okay." That shows you folks out there; if someone doesn't like what you do, confront them on it."
Moore: "Through an email!"
Verrone: "Through an email, yeah. Don't actually go to their house."

So bash away, if you want Patric's address.

Anyone know who the guy on a.t.f was?

And finally Patric can take solice in the fact that "A Leela Of Her Own" is rated below TL (a fact I hate).

I hate that fact, too.  A Leela of Her Own is a good episode, and I don't understand, either, why everyone hates it.

Anyway, it sounds like the commentary of That's Lobstertainment is way better than the episode itself.  By the way, did anyone try the alleged Maurice LaMarche e-mail address?  And actually get a response?

After I did the DXC interview for ANSTATMAW, he gave me an email address (not mentioned anywhere above) for follow-up questions. Though I never got a reply to them...  tongue

I still think it's highly respectable for the lowest rated episode of a show to get 53% - after all, one episode has to be lowest.

If you realise what the scale is, a 58% isn't bad.  It means that the average of everyone thoughts is that the episode is better than good.  And, on that scale, probably just where That's Lobstertaiment belongs.  But A Leela of Her Own should be up in the mid 70s, at least.

It says something about Futurama, though, that all the episodes rate so high.

Yeah, but it's a Futurama FAN site. Of course the eps. are going to be rated highly, people wouldn't come here because they disliked the show or thought it was "Okay."

do commentaries get edited for like bad language
and stuff?

because that would explain the huge gaps sometimes
and it would really piss me off if they did

i've found with a few episodes the commentaries
are funny then the episodes
especially when billy west and john di maggio are involved, there such jokers.
i often kind of prefer that kind of humour
to some of the stupid random things that get said
on the show

Edited? Sometimes it's quiet cause they watch the ep or don't have something to comment on.

I tried mailing David though. I don't think I will get any response.  big grin

No, the commentary isn't edited. The long gaps are just the cast and crew watching the episode. They said "asshole" in the Futurestock commentary (which would have been edited).

Edited? Hmmm, nah. This brings up the South Park DVDs. The WB, who released Season 1 and 2 wanted to edit the commentaries for 1 for language, but Parker and Stone refused and released it seperately with Comedy Central on CDs. Yet, the WB still released on the DVDs the little intro that Parker and Stone did at the beginning of every episode for the video releases, in which for the episode "An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig", they call it "An Elephant Fucks a Pig". So, what's different about that than the commentaries, which themselves weren't bad at all, really. OK, this is off-topic, so, uh... editing Futurama DVDs? No way, man! Yes, that'll stick.

There's little technicalities in censorship which restrict a DVD's special features. In the UK at least, you can't have two versions of a film with different certifications (something which troubled LOTR) so you can't have a video which is a 12 and a DVD which is a 15. Obviously, since the DVD has extra footage on it (inc. Commentaries) it can't be rated higher than the main feature. At least, I think that's how it works but these rules are being broken all the time now.

I think DXC and some of the other Futurama staff drop by here every so often to check out reactions to recently aired episodes (or so they say on the commentaries). I doubt they'll ever post as this should remain an unbiased source to get an accurate idea of how good the episodes were.

If the do hang around, and given that the writers seem to all be gamblers, do you think they take bets on the various polls?

Matt Groening commentaries in the UK have been edited and censored before - for example, in the Simpsons' ep. "Homer and Delilah", some of the more extreme references to Karl's sexuality are cut (according to the BBFC). However, this is normally reported by the BBFC, so I assume that nothing has been cut from the Futurama commentaries.

I know they use newsgroups, that's what they talk about if i remember correctly, but i haven't heard of PEEL yet.

Also, shit and ass wouldn't be censored as far as i can think off.

I'm very sure you can't.  If there was the word "shit", the movie would be PG-13 rated.

come to think of it i have seen
shit said in PG films (this is bbcf ratings by the way)
so i think it comes down to the number of times.

Infact I think i once heard it could depend on how late into the film it was. sometimes i've heard on voiceovers introducing programs warning that the show has "strong language from the start"
it seems very stupid to me but it could be true

I think the "Strong language from the start" is to warn people that may have left their TVs on or something not realising what show was on.

And Evil Fox Exec, Terminator 3 managed to get a 12A (Anyone can see it if they are with an adult (Doesn't even have to be a parent!)), that has seriously screwed up the rating system.
