This ep was shown on Norwegian TV last night, but I missed the last two minutes! What happens after Fry finds out that he'd written 'I love you Leela' with those star things?

Thanks in advance   smile

The bomb is exploded, a black hole is created. This stops the skips but Leela never saw the message, and Fry was the only one who ever will have. It ends with him staring into space

I always think that if Futurama would be nominated for a grammay/emmy (never know which prize is for tv series) it should be for Time Keeps On Slipping. It is a completely new idea as far as I know, I've never seen any show with an episode where time skips ahead. In almost every science fictiony show and cartoon is a time loop episode, where time repeats itself and the people are stuck in the loop. The episode also has great humor and romance...It's a perfect episode. The only minor is that Fry is just a little too desperate, but that has been said before...

It's "Sweet Georgia Brown", the Globetrotters' theme song.

I did a google search and http://www.polyholiday.com/century/1925.html  appears to have it on MP3 or real, I didn't download it so I'm not sure if it is what you are looking for, if that isn't it put "Sweet Georgia Brown globetrotters mp3" in google there were a few other sites listed. Hope that helps you.

Wasnt 'Amazon women in the mood' nominated for an Emmy? I can roughly remember something like that ... http://www.peelified.com/cgi-bin/showpage.cgi?Forum=1&Thread=000619

Parasites Lost was just some small-time storyboarding emmy or something. The "big" emmy is Best Animated Series(for Amazon Women) and the winner has not been announced yet.

Bullzapp!  With PE Ship traveling (obviously) at speeds far greater than that of light, Fry could have just piloted the ship a couple light weeks ahead and still make Leela see the message.  Even if they all got frozen for another million years, traces of that message in form of light waves could still be found throughout the Universe.

Wow, this thread was almost three years old.  I have to get used to this.

"It is a completely new idea as far as I know, I've never seen any show with an episode where time skips ahead. In almost every science fictiony show and cartoon is a time loop episode, where time repeats itself and the people are stuck in the loop."

Farscape did an episode early in their first season where John started having flashes of the future.

"Bunk! Bunk, I say!"

The PE ship can't travel faster than the speed of light, that would violate the very laws that form the foundation of our universe. Farnsworth even said it in "A Clone Of My Own". In "Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurddles" Leela say the ship is only capable of .99c.

I guess we got a serious case of universe shrinkage going on in the year 3000 then.  I don't know how else can you travel to the edge of the universe and back in a week (see The Route of All Evil).  And the general amount of traveling done by the crew seems to support the more-than-speed-of-light theory (maybe they warp space or something)/

Therefore, my theory re: seeing the message still being possible holds true until someone proves otherwise  smile  And I dare you to do so!

Simple, scientists raised the speed of light in 2208, remember? (A Clone of my Own)  You can reach the edge of the universe in no time, but light will still beat you there!

 eek...That always confused me. So, they aren't travelling faster than the old speed of light, but scientists lowered it(?) so that they could, but it would still take as long? Wha-? (I never understood it in the epesodes, either...)  hmpf

Old light travel at 300000  km/s, new light travel considerably faster. The PE ship is able to reach .99 of new light speed, thus it can teavel faster than old light.

Some interesting thread regarding the speed of light in the Futurama universe:

See the evidence presented by professor JBERGES.  wink Also maybe the Earth is just located very, very close to the edge of the universe.

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

While pretending to have read those two threads very carefully though in reality I just looked them over  smile, I'll say that

1) I guess it's safe to assume that light travels as a curve and the PE Ship uses a straight approach, therefore covering mileage more effectively. (There is no other logical explanation to the fact that someone can travel as fast as they do.)

2) From 1, it is assumable that they travel faster than speed of light in the rest of the universe
(no, actually they don't, they just take the shortcut home, while the poor light goes the full way).

3) Therefore, Fry can skip ahead of the light waves/particles and have Leela read the message.

you know what always confused me? How come they can go to the edge of the universe in a day (IDAR) but they could never catch up wih bender and he was gonna drift through space for ever? (G)

Oh wait, now i remember, its a cartoon. For a minute i thought it was real life

In the commentary they pointed out that there was a line during the space pirate battle that they were traveling at maximum speed, so when Bender got fired off he was going faster than the ship's maximum speed, which was why they couldn't catch up to him.

again, the ship can go VERY fast. but, they were going full speed when they fired bender, so he was going FASTER than full speed. they probably COULD have caught him, since he slowed down when he threw the swag, but they didn't know he would do that. as far as they knew, bender was going to drift endlessly at FASTER than FULL speed.

oops, flexolives beat me to it. which brings me to my next point: welcome to PEEL, flexolives!

How can you drift endlessly through the universe when there is an edge of it.  To it i mean.  Would he bounce back?

I imagine that the universe is a like a ball with something that has some gravity in the center that keeps it together.
So Bender wouldn't fly on a straight line through the universe but one a circle around this center.

And to pick up Teral's thoughts:

Yes, I also think it is probable that they (we) are near one part of the border of this ball.
This would also explain why they needed one week to get to the other side of the universe in "the route of all evil" or why they needed to sleep for saving oxygene in "kif gets knocked up a notch".
Even if scientist increased the speed of light, and the ship can go at 99/100 of the new speed of light, it would still be a real long travel.

They gave us a perfectly logical explanation in the show: they don't travel faster than light (neither perceived or for real), the reason they can cover large distances in an instant it due to the new and improved light speed (of which they're capable of doing 99%)

Random thought about things posted on this thread:
1. The universe probably has no edge.
2. With the ship traveling as fast as it does, shouldn't there be some massive time dilation going on here?

In Futurama it does have an edge, they showed it in "I Dated a Robot". As for time dilation, well, it's cartoon physics anyway so we probably shouldn't worry about it...maybe the speed of light has been changed so much that they can normally get away with going at only 10% light speed or something...and remember what they said in "A Clone of My Own", the ship doesn't really move at all, it just moves the whole universe around it (A complete load you say? Nothing's a complete load, not if you can imagine it!)
