Old LA was destroyed and New LA was rebuilt in a different location.

Well, they do go through the old Hollywood sign...maybe all that dense fog and crap is just for the tourists.

Hollywood was still standing in "The Cryonic Woman," as well.  It's the rest of LA that's ruined.

Hollywood's in L.A.? I thought they were both seperate cities in the state California. I could be wrong though.

Looked it up, Hollywood is indeed in L.A.. I don't think anyone ever said L.A. was in ruins though. It was just really foggy and you couldn't see the city very good. They just said it was a hellhole. Maybe the fog had something to do with the time of the year.

That is kind of weird when the go to the thearter and see Pauly Shore the sky is still green but the buildings are still standing.  But in Lobstertanment the sky is good.  Probably just some of the city is in ruins and the sky changes colors due to where.

It's the future, so there's probably some kind of sky dye or something that they use to get rid of the green color in Hollywood.  They don't bother using it on the poor neighborhoods, though.

I don't think LA is in ruins; look at how much smog is over that city now....1,000 years would definately add enough smog to turn the sky green. And besides, LA is in a desert; Fry and Michelle could have been on the outskirts of the city.

I don't think all of L.A. is in ruins but the place where Fry and Michelle were did look like something out of Mad Max.  They probably were on the outskirts of the city.  Maybe that was old L.A. and were the movie premiere was in New L.A.

LA never changed, all the kids had guns "as pointed out by Fry"  but I thought it was the south that never changed "as mentioned by Brian in Family Guy"  Someone clear that up?

Indeed.  I think the joke was supposed to be that L.A is pretty much the same as it is now 1000 years in  the future.

Maybe they had to clean it up because the awards were on the way and a LOT of people were coming, so the city of L.A. was probably going to get an ass whooping by agents if the city was clean

My theory is that all the fg around L.A. created some sort of a protective bubble over hollywood keeping it from being destroyed by anything or anyone. and therefore it was a healthy little place, yup....it makes complete sense.....quit looking at me like that!

L.A. in "The Cryonic Woman" wasn't that much of a dump, it was the surrounding areas that looked Mad Max-ish.  The fog obscures the actual city, and maybe the actual city limits aren't so bad (for being in California).  But I still like the old L.A./new L.A. idea.

Well the problem is that the surrounding area of L.A. doesn't look like that.  The Mad Max area due look like ruins.  That is the only reason I think the new L.A. theory works also there is New New York.

Simple: The whole TCW episode was a dream, and Fry actually never met Paully Shore.

No, I actually like that.  It explains why the last 2/3 of the ep sucked so hard.  It's not what actually happened but it's a nice thought.

I think the only thing left standing in LA was Hollywood considering they went there to meet Zoidberg's uncle. 

Anyway, I wondered if Leela had quit her temporary job as a pizza delivery girl in that episode...

@newhook: Hollywood is a district of L.A., but not L.A. itself.

@anyone who wants to read this: Since L.A. is composed of all these districts (Hollywood, Beverly Hills, etc.), maybe the more affluent districts can afford to create a force field around them or direct the smog so it enters the slums and the more violent areas.

here's a question:  When fry is battling the kid during the skateboarding contest, why are there cars there???  with wheels???  in the year 3000 when no one from planet express had even heard of the wheel (Mother's Day) and all of the cars in New New York were hover cars?

also i like the random ending with fry falling to his death....could the whole thing be a dream, or is it like the ending of "War is the H-Word" where the bomb blows at the end - just a random event to confuse and amuse us all?

Actually, as far as I can tell, they were in Hollywood--I recall seeing a star on the Walk of Fame, which is in Hollywood. Just to clear that up.

I like that.  "The old planet express crew were hired to move the entire district a few hundred kms up the road.  Then, due to the fame it brought them, they were hired to get space honey for the Prime Minister of Norway.  (Who had a fetish for space honey at the time). 

The rest is history. 

When they failed to return, the PM of Norway went to the prof. to complain.  Just after declaring that he had decided to sue (He had paid in advance, and was angry), he mysteriously died.  (Possibly a certain Jamaican Beaurocrat who knew that PE couldn't afford the court case). 

His arm fell behind the couch, and Bender found it and picked it up years later.  Behind the couch he also found 3 pennies and a half-chewed sock."

What, no comments?

When you first see LA I would say its like Mad Max (I wanna see the first Mad Max movie just to see the old school Falcons that are in it)
