Haven't they always been like that? Infact, I don't recall them having visible microphones at all... shifty

Biggest Goof: in Yo Leela Leela. The Slurm queen........thats the biggest goof.......how did they find it out? They would never tell........

My take on this subject is that the Slurm Queen realized that humans are happy to chow down on buggalo meat and drink buggalo milk and weirder things besides, she didnt need to hide away anymore, and she could maximize her profits by firiing all the grunka lunkas, selling the fake factory to property developers, and making public apperances where she slurms celebrities.  Win. Win. Win.

I heard she's getting her own chat show soon.  Kind of like a fatter, sluggier, slurmier Oprah.

But that makes no sense. Basically, we all eat cows right? Nobody finds that weird. (Except maybe vegetarians.) So if you found out that bacon actually came from something stupid like mushed up maggots and sheep eyeballs, would you carry on eating it?

Now that you mention it, a lot of people do enjoy hotdogs and haribo.

Just noticed that the spacesuits that the crew wears in Cold Warriors have their radio microphones outside their helmets.  That's going to make it a bit hard to communicate...



I always thought that was on purpose.

Cold Warriors: Fry's mom is watching football and counting down the yards.  "Woo!  Down at the 35!"  On TV the players make it beyond 30, maybe even 25.

I've never noticed the headphones before, but it seems like the sort of visual gag the writers/animators would make.

Maybe the headphones are actually inside the helmet, and the bit we assume is the headphone actually transmits and receives the radio waves or whatever?

If the microphone is in physical contact with the clear visor then the sound vibration could be transmitted that way. It's not as silly as space movies that have interior lights shining into the helmet wearer's face and eyes. I reality it would mess up the wearer's vision if not totally blind them for the sake of well lit. purdy faces in the helmets on film.

Okay here's one, dunno if it's been mentioned before, but Leela's eyePhone can be seen when she's on Fry's screen, but Fry's eyePhone can't be seen on Leela's screen.





Also, Leela is still in space like a mili-second before she crashes through the PE wall, we don't see the sky or clouds behind her in the cockpit at all.

I laughed, it was a smart way of showing how stupid people are these days, they buy a new iPhone and oh no wait the new iPhone 2 is out, let's go and get oh wait again the new iPhone 2S9 is out, and then the iPhone 2S92! It's just a cycle.

However, I agree that it was pointless that Mom was waiting to activate the Twitt-Worm, everyone went mental for the eyePhone, why did she not expect them to buy the new one?

Well, that seems like one thing you (Danny) and me agree on. I thought that Attack of the Killer App was a strong episode, except for TLPJF easily one of the best of 6A. The goat scene was edgy, but it didn't ruin the episode for me. Susan Boil did though. I can't think of any episode where a single relatively minor idea caused so much damage. Arguably the ending of The Cryonic Woman, but that one at the least was kind of funny, which Susan Boil wasn't even remotely.

Wasn't bad, wasn't great. Didn't necessarily have to be there, but fit in with the competition between Fry and Bender theme, so it was okay.

True. I was slightly dissapointed when Fry hit the ground and then rolled into the pool. I think it would of been better if he dived right in.

Goat was dumb. Boil was dumb. TwitWorm was dumb. AotKA is one of the very few episodes that I thought was worse after a rewatch. I didn't think it was bad the first time I saw it, thought the ending was kind of sweet even. But having seen it three or four times now it's just not good.

Other way around. First time I saw it I thought it was utter crap. But after re-watching I quite like it.

Goat was dumb. Boil was dumb. TwitWorm was dumb.

The TwitWorm wasn't dumb, it was merely senseless. The goat and the boil were dumb in a similar way, although the goat was merely a side joke and the boil was a major twist, although thinking about it I refuse to call something as stupid as that a genuine twist. It's just letting your 10-year-old son write the story.

Edit: I really don't get why people make such a big deal of the TwitWorm. Yes, when you think about it, it's not very logical. When you think about it. Is it so hard not to? The boil was a scene that was annoying, no matter what. The TwitWorm concept wasn't annoying and it helped to integrate Mom into the story. It wasn't done in a clever way, but once a major criticism of an episode is a minor story issue, I think we're whining on a very high level...

I don't know that it's a "minor story issue". The main premise of the story - Mom's nefarious world-destroying plan, which affects Fry and Bender to a great degree - makes no sense. If she could just give the worm to both of them, why did she have to wait until someone hit a million? Why not just give to to everyone? Why did she even give them the worm, if the whole thing is a spoof on the tired "everyone is obsessed with Apple" tirade?

The goat and the boil where just stupidly juvenile. I can watch any of a ton of other animated shows if I want poop jokes. I don't watch those. I watch this one instead for a reason.

...I think we are officially off topic but I can't think of a good way to get back on it.

Exactly, it's more of a major issue than some joke I don't like such as Susan as far as I'm concerned. It's just so stupid. It was something I noticed right away on first watch - it's not like some minor little problem I've picked up on on the third viewing and have fixated on.

Yes but Leela is in space when she says "spaghetti" and less than a second later she crashes through the hangar. There's no way it could go that fast.

Infact, here:

Leela would of been flying towards Earth like this:



And she wasn't paying attention to where she was going, so she would of hit Planet Express like this:



But somehow, she crashes into the back here:



Meaning she should of been travelling along the ground towards the back of the hangar, not through space.

I watched AoTKA yesterday to reassure myself that it isn't actually secretly great. Reassurances made. Thy only really funny line I found was Bender's "Stop thinking, Fry."

Good thought, Danny. It's a relatively minor goof in a twenty-minute sea of errors and poop jokes, but it is still worth noting.

Can't believe I'm going to defend such a crappy episode, but the two approach vectors are not mutually exclusive.



Hopefully the diagram clears things up. If not, try to land a pencil on a football in the manner illustrated.

Yes I thought about that too, but why would she be flying at such a strange angle. We've seen Leela fly "towards" Earth many times.

Why would that be a strange angle. Keep in mind that she was talking on the phone that distracted her to the point that she crashed AND we're talking about gigantic distances travelled in miniscule times.

I was wondering last night that it's sort of weird that Earth seems to be the only planet in the 31st Century that has major cities. Seems all the other planets the crew goes too only have a few buildings in one spot if any buildings at all. Lots of shacks, cabins, caves, and swamps but no urban sprawl. Perhaps simpler to draw but a bit odd.

She didn't necessarily fly in horizontally. It was most likely at a slight angle, missing the buildings but not hitting from above.

Yes, it could go that fast, the ship can travel faster than than our current speed of light.

tnuk's post makes sense too, yet scenes like the one in Rebirth where the ship does in fact crash nose-first lend merit to Danny's original proposition.
