I guess it's fair to revive this thread now that the second half of the season has begun airing.

Anyway, not a major goof, but when checking towards the end of "Benderama" to see whether they had remembered to have the Earth spinning clockwise (due to the events of "That Darn Katz") I noticed that it isn't spinning at all... hmpf

You can barely see the Earth spinning depending on the angle or distance, so I wouldn't count that as a goof.

But considering they always go out of their way to show it spinning, I consider it a goof.

Well, whatever. Anyway I also noticed that when Bender is watching UGM destroy the city on TV, the helicopter is missing on the TV despite showing the exact same view. A bit of a shame really, since it's an otherwise stunning bit of animation.  hmpf

I believe the scene on the TV is shot from a slightly different angle. Perhaps it's closer, so it makes the helicopter not visible in the shot. Otherwise, if they were really that detailed you would see some sort of camera or news helicopter in the window's view. But isn't that the news helicopter in the window?  confused Or perhaps its delayed by a few seconds like most newscasts are, in which case the helicopter was not there yet.

Or, it could just be a mistake eek

I was wondering this myself, but I notice that the TV shows a part of the sky that's higher up than what can be seen out of the window. So presumably the feed is from a camera on the roof or something.

And the helicopter is an attack gunship being piloted by Zapp and Kif, as we see later in the scene.

Actually...watching it again, I think the view on the TV is supposed to be coming FROM the helicopter...I mean where the hell else would it be coming from? Yes, the view looks pretty much exactly the same as what you see out the window, which is perhaps a bit of a goof, but not being able to see the helicopter isn't a goof, since the camera shooting the TV footage must be on the helicopter.

Huh? When was that established? I looked through the thread and failed to find it.

I don't think it's supposed to be the helicopter that has the camera. Especially, you know, seeing as the helicopter has freaking guns on it.

Crap, I failed entirely there, didn't I?

Still, I don't think that's the news helicopter. Lay in the guns on it together with the fact that we saw helicopters attacking the giant before, and the angle being all wrong.

That reminds me of another goof, wouldn't those missles from Zapp's Tank at least leave a rip/burn/mark/injury? Like a missile to him must be a bullet to us. confused

It may be a little far-fetched that they won't hurt him even slightly, but then again we have no idea of how the giant's biology works. For all we know, he could have some sort of skin-coloured metal, in which case it's not far-fetched. Just say "he's a space giant of some sort we know nothing about", and anything is possible. :P

Skin coloured metal? laff Then why/how does he need to shave? tongue

The skin is also metal, and evolved evolutionarily, so he "needs" to shave for the same reason humans "need" to shave - the beard barely has a point anymore, so most people get rid of it because it's in the way.

I'm not saying it's plausible, I'm just saying it's not a goof because there are plenty of logical explanations. smile

Not necessarily. A robot is defined by that it is a machine that can think logically. Many machines in our society are made of metal, but all things of metal aren't necessarily robots. A biological life could technically evolve with metal skin without "turning" in to a robot for some reason.

Not necessarily. A cyborg is a biological creature that has had mechanical elements imported into the body, so that the body is part biological, part mechanical. In other words yes, the giant could be a cyborg, but he could also just be some sort of amazing mechanical man. Or a robot.  All of this is beside my main point, which is there are plenty of explanations.

A missle to him would not be like a bullet to us, bullets travel at a high velocity with low mass, which is why they pierce the skin and mess us up good. A missle to him is more like a bottle rocket to us, yeah it may hurt for a second and scare the crap outta ya, but no real damage as its slow moving, all things considered and relativly low on mass. But carry on, with the metal skin, it makes me more think with my thinker.

Though the extreme heat of the missile would have given him pretty severe burns if he had regular human skin, jeepdavetj.

Ah, but what is the thickness of said skin. If it gets thicker as he gets larger, then it may be no worse than what we would get from a roman candle, a red spot that stings a little.

Compare the heat of a missile and the heat of a candle. It's quite the difference, even considering his size and the resultant thickness of the skin. The explanation would be either that his skinthickness-height scale is not proportionate to that of humans, or that he has a different type of skin (like metal or whathaveyou).

He never gets larger... hmpf

jeepdavetj meant "he" as in "the experimental object of discussion".

True Aki, but with his failed genetics, his skin could be hard and tough, like the soles of our feet. And I must say, I never thought I would have this discussion big grin

Found a goof in 'Benderama', when the UGM is shaving with Zapp and Kif's DOOP Helicopter, he gets punched by Big Bender, and the helicopter completely disappears, he doesn't drop it and you don't see it fly away out of his hand.  hmpf

There is a cut between him holding hit and him being punched. He could clearly have dropped it, crushed it, or had it fly away off camera.

Yeah, but the cut is like less than a second.

That's hard to know, it could have been a time cut. Plus, even in just a second he could easily have thrown it aside.

You're not misinformed. Xanfor's pulling things outta his ass.

Besides which, we know that teleportation will not be invented until 3026, thanks to a line in Neutopia.

The teleportation effect in LN appears random and short-range. I'm guessing that actual, useful teleportation is yet to be invented.

True, but accuracy and distance are not required during an emergency. The ETS gives you a short, random hop away when you're in danger, more than enough to escape whatever unattractive giant happens to be crushing you.

In Neutopia when Leela nudges Fry to wake him up in the plain cockpit she has her wristie-thing on. In the next scene it's gone. I'll have to check tonight to see if it appears/ disappears in earlier scenes.
