I'm sure someone has pointed this out, probably several times, but I'll say it here with pictures. I love how the icefields of Hyperion are folded into Leela's comatose dreams:


Because there's a print or painting of the vista in her hospital room:


And I also dig the squeezey toy on her nightstand, no doubt a real-life gift from Fry (instead of the dream gift found in his locker).

This sort of occurrence jibes with my experience. e.g., whenever I have to pee as I'm asleep, but my body won't wake up, I will dream about using the restroom, but feeling no relief no matter what my dream self does, and feeling increasingly frustrated. Or, if my alarm has gone off, and there's music playing, my brain will incorporate that music into my dream.

Ha, I said I was busy, which I am. But I can always find time for The Sting. smile

I have to say, I've never noticed the painting before. Nice find SparkyB. Yeah, I've had that. Perma-pee.

Now looking that picture, I relised Leela has Fry's jacket on her, just like she thought she had in dream.

Umm, I'm not a mod or anything but maybe let's try to watch the redundant quoting, especially with images that are not too far from your post. It seems to fill up the page unnecessarily and makes reading the thread a little tedious smile

There's only a few episodes that I feel adequately prepared to nitpick; while I've seen all of them, there's just a few that I watch over and over and over and over and over and over... I need to expand my repertoire of fallback favorites!

I noticed the flowers, at the foot of her bed. Probably not intended, but they seem to mirror, in miniature, the huge space flowers that the space bees were pollinating at the beginning of the ep.

Also, from this same ep: I've always wondered at the scene where Leela has really come undone and travels to Fry's floating casket, and then opens it. I know that it's an allusion to Stanley Kubrick's Space Odyssey 2001 (which I've never seen, only images and clips here and there, so I may not know what I'm talking about).

But as I went to bed last night, I was struck by the thought that perhaps Leela is terrified as she peers into the vast infinite, the void of eternity stretching before her forever and ever. That this is what death holds--an eternity of nothing. Or, that her limbo state between life and death will be an infinite loop of the same events (until she dies of course), since she's getting no new input if she remains in her coma. As Fry repeatedly begs her not to do!

I'm not quite clear on what I'm thinking; but as I'm struggling with my own personal terror due to medical issues, the very apparent fear in her expression has resonated with me.

Haha, same.

#Don't worry . . . be happy . . .  big grin

I had noticed those little details in the hospital room, but I didn't think it was coincidence. Rather, I'd always assumed they popped up in Leela's dream because Fry was talking about them in real life. He talks at her for something like two weeks straight, doesn't he? He must have been struggling for ideas after a while, and he does have a pretty active imagination. I wouldn't be surprised if he started describing fantasy dates at the first places he could think of. (This would tie in with Leela's own statement -  "I've never been treated so romantically by my own imagination".) Ditto when he says she looks cold and gives her his jacket.

I noticed the flowers, at the foot of her bed. Probably not intended, but they seem to mirror, in miniature, the huge space flowers that the space bees were pollinating at the beginning of the ep.

Oh, neat! Maybe it's not intentional, but I do like that. And now that you've mentioned it, they also remind me of the bouquet Fry picks for her in Parasites Lost.

Also, from this same ep: I've always wondered at the scene where Leela has really come undone and travels to Fry's floating casket, and then opens it. I know that it's an allusion to Stanley Kubrick's Space Odyssey 2001 (which I've never seen, only images and clips here and there, so I may not know what I'm talking about).

But as I went to bed last night, I was struck by the thought that perhaps Leela is terrified as she peers into the vast infinite, the void of eternity stretching before her forever and ever.

As Fry repeatedly begs her not to do!

I haven't seen Space Odyssey in full either. But then, pop culture is so saturated with references I'm not sure I'll ever need to.

Your analysis of that scene hits the nail on the head though. Leela is stuck reliving the same events (thinking Fry is alive only to be disappointed later) throughout her coma, because as you say, she's getting no new input, and her subconscious can hear Fry. It keeps insisting he's real, but Leela doesn't make the connection - that if her hallucinations are real, maybe the "real world" isn't. The coffin scene is her breaking point, and it's also the biggest disintegration of her dream-world. That her hallucinations are becoming more outlandish suggests her mind has begun to break down, and if she doesn't make a choice now, she won't be "sane enough to" in future. It's only after she peers into that coffin that she starts talking about dying. I like this theory.

Hope you're okay, sparky.  frown

Fry: Hey, uh, what was the purpose of life anyway?

Professor: Who knows? Probably some hogwash about the human spirit.

I've always wondered if this was a reference to Billy Meier(look him up). Peace, love and reincarnation basically. If Billy, Buddha, and Hindu's are correct, settle in. We gots a longs ways to goes(Just throwin it out there if it helps anyone).

Any self-respecting Texan would agree. And if you've ever eaten at Franklin Barbecue, you would agree that you have found the meaning of life. smile

Sure. But at that angle, he's probably beneath the top of the bench behind Zoidberg anyway. I'm not sweatn the tiny sliver of brown missing from the left side of frame. Maybe if it had more screen time.

I think Tedward's right. The Professor is pretty much beneath that light fixture in the corner.

*sigh* I told myself that I'd watch different episodes besides the usual faves that I reach for again and again. But, I couldn't resist: Farnsworth Parabox last night. One of the things that strikes me about Futurama is how well the animators capture realistic human movement. In this episode, I really liked how Universe B Leela turned around and flipped her ponytail up to show off the engagement/wedding diamond scrunch that Universe B Fry gave to her. Quite feminine how she moved.

And in AOI, the one where Bender becomes human, the way the stripper dances around the pole (the cheesey Miami Sound Machine song playing) was an especially good example of animation of dynamic body mechanics.

One for the gentlemen:



Bender: You really want to see a one-eyed future-mutant on a stripper pole?

Koobooki: Yeah, ever since I was six...teen.

For the animation nerds, isolate one part and follow it through. Her ponytail for example. Notice how realistically it flows. Or her hands and how it moves around the Jedi stripper pole.

Husband wanted to watch 300BB, which I've seen dozens of times (among my favorites), but I always get a laugh out of the bit where Fry and Leela are watching in horror as Kif and Amy almost fall out of the sky--the part where Fry gurgles his shriek/scream through his whale-sized coffee just tickles me.

Also, I watched HiOR and I am just amazed by the sumptuous animation there. I will capture screen grabs later. And oddly enough, I never EVER noticed "Sparky's Den." Go me! big grin

Yes, those were on her.

I noticed Scruffy had his cap before intro and after it was gone. I guess professor just took it away. On another note, I like how Kif's guts were presented (consistency with bladders), but Bender's inside on that scene has always bothered me.
