At the end of "Ghost in the Machines", we see Bender float up vertically from hell. As he ascends, he passes the Planet Express headquarters. Since when was Robot Hell in New New York? Additionally, the NNY sewers, as well as Old New York, should be there.

Perhaps it spans underground from New Jersey all the way to New New York? I dunno.

Additionally, the NNY sewers, as well as Old New York, should be there.
My only explanation for this is that perhaps they just cut that sequence out and decided to just skip forward to Bender passing Planet Express.

That's fair enough. I guess Robot Hell might be underneath Old New York.

Or... maybe the sewer mutants vacated the sewers after winning equal rights, and then the Robot Devil decided to Move Hell there.

Yeah I'm guessing Robot Hell has to be pretty big...

I guess we'll know for sure whenever they next visit the sewers. Will it be the sewers like normal? Or will they have turned into Robot Hell?... Taking all bets! tongue...

After he started drifting, he could've made a turn at some point, considering we didn't see the parts between the ground and surface.

Otis, did you see underground in the Futurama Game?

It was like, Planet Express, then you go into the Sewers directly underneath, then to the Subway, then into Old New York... laff (But I think you go like, down, down, up, down, etc...)

I like how they all connect though. Amazing game. They need to make a new one.

Danny, I was about to agree with you, and then you said the game was amazing. It wasn't. The game was shit. The "Futurama" aspect was good, but the "game" part wasn't.

Fair enough I suppose. I wouldn't mind another Futurama game if it was made by a decent developer. (If Rockstar ever made a sandboxy-type Futurama game, I'd probably be the happiest person in the world.)

The game was pretty standard. Not shit, but not amazing. It was tried-and-tested platformer collect-the-gold-rings and defeat-the-boss and grab-extra-lives stuff. Nothing new. Very much a standard family car.

The Futurama theme was basically the paintjob that transformed it from a family car into a pimped-up ride. It was pretty sweet at the time, by anybody's standards. But it has low replay value once you get to the end, and the only levels I foundmyself replaying were the segments with Fry and Zoidberg.

I also found myself putting cheat codes in to unlock the extra content because Leela's segment was that little bit too difficult and time-consuming for me to actually care about getting 100% completion on it.

If they released a new Futurama game for the Xbox, I'd probably have more incentive to buy a new Xbox, but It'd have to be something new. Not as tried-and-tested as what we had last time. They'd have to mix up the formula, and I'd prefer a plot that could be considered canon, too.

This has nothing to do with the location of Robot Hell though, does it?

But if it was a canon plot there might be references to it in the show and people who didn't play it would be like WHHHA?

Otis, did you see underground in the Futurama Game?

I was all ready for you to say that Robot Hell was underground with the sewers in the game, but apparently not then? Sadly I never got the chance to play it. I was all ready to go out and buy it for my Gamecube, but then they suddenly pulled that version of the game...

Now that I also own a PS3 Slim, maybe it would work on there?...

Because bad robots are really bad. Human hell should be in Joisey, because it simply sucks noodle-cock and would be painful to humans. As for the douchebags, they should have to watch baseball all day in Japan, as they would die of boredom.But robots would like Joisey because of all the sleeze and so on. Robot Hell should be in Singapore, where you can't get away with anything...

That's not how I remember Singapore. It used to be a bastion of debauchery. Hookers, cock-fights, opium... whatever you want.
Of course, that was just after the war, back in '46. Things could have changed.

Then how about: A CATHOLIC CHURCH. Long boring sermons, long boring ceremonies, long boring services, long boring brochures, and top-notch child molestors! Just for the douches!

Not quite top-notch. You want the public school system for that.

Regarding robot hell:

It seems that it's moved to underneath Hermes' apartment (7ACV07). I know this is still in NNY, but just an interesing note. Hermes was also able to parachute from his apartment to work, so they must be close. Maybe the Robot Devil moved to a new office.

I normally don't get too involved in continuity nit-picking threads but time is always a factor when producing these shows. Although it was important for Bender to pass by the PlanEx building on his hell to heaven trip("Wait, this is my stop!"), it may have been too tedious to have him floating all over the place in between. I'm not really sure how much of a writer's mistake it was when they did make an effort from the beginning to establish Robot Hell as an extensive location:





Just my 2 cents.

Robot Hell isn't a physical place at all.  It's a state of robot mind.

I think with "Ghost in the machines", the show settled for the cliche Christian setting.
Heaven > Up.
Hell Down > Down.
A direction that works whereever the appropriate character is standing right now.

Robot Hell will probably still be restricted to Earth.
Yet, a Robot "dying" e.g. in China, will go straight up/down and still end up in Robot Heaven/Hell the same way as if it met it's demise in New New York.

Well, at least one entrance physically exists in the state of New Jersey. By the way, I hope the writers keep bringing back Robot Hell any which way. I ***king LOVE Castellaneta as the Robot Devil.

The new trailer showed one scene with Fry and Bender sliding into Robot Hell, with the Devil un-excitedly moaning "Oh...those guys". Of course, this could be a minor throwaway gag. Yet, I doubt so.
