Eh, I am just going off what I think.  I strongly doubt they will ever go into it again (the only possibility I see in the near future is the episode with the dog)... Fry said that Enos was his paternal grandfather.  Of course it could be wrong, Fry isn't the smartest person ever.  Also, it seemed to me that this was one of his more "lucid" episodes... he didn't forget he lived on planet earth, he understood that he had to keep Enos from becoming gay, etc.

As for the DVD thing, it is probably a lot cheaper to make DVD's for futurama than for the simpsons; as futurama is all done on a computer as it is, it should be relatively simple to shovel it onto a dvd with some audio commentary and call it good.  With the simpsons, they have to get it into a computer, then they had to do postprocessing on it, and all.  As long as the DVD set makes money, then all seasons will probably be put onto dvd's, and I would also be willing to bet that the infrastructure for making simpsons dvds are almost identicle to futurama dvd (ie, as long as simpsons dvds are made, then futurama dvds also will probably be made).  We can hope that if enough people order them from europe that don't live in europe, then they will be swamped with "gee, we don't have enough" and will have to make more.

Plus, even if you don't have a region 2 or region 0(all) dvd player, or it can't be modded, you can always rip them if you own them -- not terribly "legal", but probably more legal than downloading the episodes off the net.

I don't bother to read ALL the words at this page, but I just wanted to say the we never got to know Fry's GRANDFATHER'S name in the "Luck of the Fryish"

Fry's dad said: "...Yancy, like me, my grandfather and so on all the way up to minute-man Yancy". He skips mentioning his father's name (Fry's grandfather, that is).

Ricky is technically correct (the best kind of correct).  My guess is that the guy who says "In all my years of covering top secret discoveries with sheets..."  They sound very similar.

Well, not related to the grandfather discussion, but just a funny thing. You really gotta hand it to those 1947 army engineers/scientists. They take the broken pieces of a bending robot, and turn them into a working spaceship. Thats pretty amazing.

I hate digging up an old thread, but I noticed something that may not have been noticed before.

The collapsing star at the start of the episode is extremely similar to the collapsing star in the second episode of Star Trek the Next Generation episode, "The Naked Now".

I hadnt seen this ep of TNG til just recently and I straight away saw Futurama's resemblence.

once again sorry for awaking this ancient thread, but I didnt think it was necessary to start a new one just for this.

In Futurama robots can't be sober (they have to drink beer so they can act "normal" ).
Well, In this episode Bender passed covered with soil for more 1000 years.
And when he got out (without drinking for more than 1000 years) he was acting normal.

And don't forget he doesn't *need* alcohol. Good old mineral oil will do. Maybe there just happened to be a convenient stream of that running past Bender's mouth.

I think he is is his own grandfather, thats the reason stated that he could beat the brains. And i dont think enos was originally Fry's grandfather and then changed history because they never would have survived the 1st brain attack. It doesnt make sense, but what does in
futurama,nothing... except the stuff that does.
And thankyou McGrady for actual facts instead of the crap the rest of you come out with (no 'fence)
Oh and DXC mentions in the DVD commentaries that the worms probably cured Fry of his infertillity

here's my take on the yancy/enos argument:

we all know these two things:
-Fry's an idiot.
-Fry's paternal grandfather was named yancy (if you assume that fry's father meant to include his father:

my explantion is that fry knew his grandfather's name was enos. BUT, being an idiot, he mixed up his maternal grandfather (enos) and his paternal grandfather (yancy)

But he didn't include Fry's grandfather. And this Yancy thing seems of great importance to the Commander, and a source of pride. If Fry's paternal grandfather was named Yancy he would surely have included him, maybe saying "Son, your name is Yancy, just like me and all firstborn males of our line all the way up to Minuteman Yancy, who fought ccommies in the American Revolution".

Maybe the Yancy thing is a family tradition like we have in mine where the first-born male of each generation has a particular name, regardless of who his parents are. I have older cousins, but they're all girls, so when I was born the lot fell on me. Maybe Enos just wasn't the first-born of his generation.

That said, Fry's Mum does have the red hair and cowlick at the front that Fry's Dad (Yancy) doesn't have.

Of course, Enos *could* be related to the Fry family anyway. Fry's specialness could be partly due to a Nibblonian regime of inter-breeding long before Fry arrived in 1946.

My head hurts now.

Alright, old topic, but I just discovered the internet.

And also a generous family member decided to get me some futurama dvd's.

I like to think with my little mind that the Yancy tradition thing is from the other side of the family. I like to think that Fry and Mildred just snuggled, or just shared a bed. I like to think Enis (Enis or Enos?) was bi, or maybe just curious. I like to think Enis and Mildred more than snuggled, but were just ashamed to say it out loud because they were just engaged and not married.

I like to think they just went back to cause the Roswell incident.

I also think that Fry's sperm was repaired during the 'Parasites Lost' episode. You all saw Zoidberg riding sperm, don't deny it.

Also, this is the very same show where the people of Atlanta become mermaids, MERMAIDS!

Also, the whole wheel thing...

Now, can anybody tell me the first secret in the pilot, or point me to a thread with the answer.

That's a fine theory, but (and I ask this since you apparently just got the Season 3 DVDs,) have you seen "The Why of Fry" in Season 4?  If not, don't read the spoiler below.
Christ, it's been so long since I bothered to use spoiler tags.  "The Why of Fry" also explains the "SECRET!" in the pilot.  I highly recommend seeing it for yourself.

I also think there's a more specific topic for this created more recently, but I could be wrong and I don't really want to search for you.

Finally, welcome to PEEL.  FAQ you.  And good luck maintaining your sanity on the Internet.  You're going to need it.

I sincerely apologise for my previous post.

At the time, I only had finished the season 3 box set, and had not seen 'The Why of Fry'.

Thank-you for being so nice.

Why? if its for my comentary , im serious, there is a lot of people who tries to "legitimaze" Futurama and create a continuity with tech and so on, but we are speaking, like you said of a show where Atlanta sinks and people instead dying, they became mermaids, a show where in one instance they say that they can reach the edge of the universe in matter of hours, and in other Bender is drifting across the space and more than top speed and he is said to drift forever, and one show who said that the ships didnt have hyperspace so they travel under light speed, and in other they are seen making a hyperjump (Comic).. and so on..

like we say, an extremely bussy Wizzard did it

you have not to apologize for that.. unless you want to for another thing in wich case im just speaking alone

I'd have to agree with McGrady on all opinions. It makes the most sense to think that the futurn is automatically altered when the past is, kind of like the option in photoshop to automatically propotion your image or something.

I think the main problem is this: If Fry is one of his parents' father, that would mean that that particular parent (his mother or father) would have 50% his genes. So, logically, he should have 25% of his genes. This seems paradoxical, because he should be 100% his own genes!

He IS 100% his own genes...because each gene, in every person is both their own, AND received from a parent. 

I have 50% my mom's, 50% my dad's, and 100% my own genes...but I don't have 200% of my genes!  Just 100%.  You could say that my genes were just pre-owned by two other people.

Fry's only unusual in that 25% of his genes were NOT pre-owned by anyone but himself...in essence, he gave them away, but got a rebate nine months later.   wink
