Aha! Get it? A Carl Sagan outfit? Cause it's the future and they go to space a lot?! No? I'll just show myself out then....

I think you may be right, CS was totally a turtleneck/jacket man.
(and probably goes without saying the Carl Sagan look was to make Fry look more brainy and mature)

I noticed that during the pilot that Leela's wrist thingy was on the wrong arm when she called the cops.

"...those people on the internet...they're brutal"

Quote from the dvd commentary about the wrong wrist. I think it was just easier for framing the camera-pan gag.



This is officer 1B-DI requesting back-up.

We'll be there in five minutes.

or have we already had one like that? I can't remember, and searching for Futurama scenes is ridiculously harder than finding ponies.

Yes, there is similiar. Only funnier. tongue

This only just caught my eye, but when Smitty and URL pull over in "2-D Blacktop" after the Professor pulls his first dimensional drift, there is a small sign that says "Hot Blood" in AL1.

There's a Bender Mosaic in the following scene, when the Professor's ship re-enters 3D space. Like the ones he was pasting all over the city in APTR. Somewhat battered by time, but still there. There were a lot of little touches in this episode that I liked... it's just a shame that it felt rushed and there were also a fair helping of unfunny jokes.

In Fry and Leela's Big Fling, the primate tourists at the zoo are buying hats shaped like Fry's hair.

There's a sign which points "Otters" one way, and "Others" the other.

While Fry is getting drunk and watching Leela talk to Sean, he's reading a book of Pre-Done Crosswords.

LaBarbara and Barbados Slim are among the zoo's previous attractions.

(I spotted the Bender mosiac in 2-D Blacktop too, I thought it was a great touch.)

Was that PI? Sorry. I thought it was APTR. I know that one starts with Bender committing an act of vandalism. Anyhow, looks like you've achieved one of your life goals, and successfully corrected me. Having watched the beginning of PI, it seems to be the very same graffiti that we saw Bender in the act of... graffiting? What's the present tense of graffiti when used as a verb?

So, yes. It's Proposition Infinity, and I got them mixed up because I'm becoming old and senile.

So, I've got several decades before life becomes worth living? Great. Things will get better just before I decide that I'd like to die rather than live with a colostomy bag and vision at the approximate resolution of the original Game Boy.

Half the pleasure's in the anticipation, tnuk. You can spend the time playing Pokemon on the original Game Boy. It'll be a life well-spent.   big grin

Returning to topic : I also liked the little hint they dropped for Saturday Morning Fun Pit, with Fry talking about how the robot hands "would make you strawberry shortcake any time, day or night!" Seeing as the Strawberry Shortcake segment of SMFP looks to be Freela-centered, I thought that was a sly joke.

On Feed 6 (posted by Eternium above), the timestamp says 10:43. I'm pretty sure that was the time that scene was airing. They did the same thing in Xmas Story with the clock tower.

In "2-D Blacktop", when the street gang and Farnsworth drive around the corner, you can see a glimpse of the crack addict from "My Three Suns" and "300 Big Boys" shaking in the street...

I notice these little things after watching several times, even with 20th or so rewatch I notice many things. So here's some things that has been pointed out 5 years ago from Bender's Big Score:

I must have seen this already, but anyway Seymor in shelf:


Couple "brands":
iObey - software making Bender obey.
Hairibo gummy bears - "antidepressant".

There was Cartman's head in a jar.

Lots of aliens in beach:

Notice O-shaped alien and blue one with several boobs(I guess?) all over her.

I don't think he can swim. I think he just treads water (or jelly, or Slurm, or goat vomit  puke) until someone pulls him out.

The pool in FALBF didn't look that deep. About as deep as the hot tub at Planet Express, I'd say, and Fry's never had a problem with that. It just looks like he panics if the water is deep or there's a current.  (Or if he can't flip-flop out. laff )

He probably started swim lessons and got lazy after the first one. The inability to stick with anything would be typical of Fry.

The robot from The Scary Door episode in "Benderama" can briefly be seen mining in the train tunnel in "Forty Percent Leadbelly".

*edit*

During the rap at the end of the episode the screen at the back says "$BB = 10111011," which, if I've done this correctly, translates to:

$BB = 187

...which makes sense, since Big Caboose says at that part "Went 1-8-7 on his robot ass," plus the screen itself says 187.

*edit 2*

Guess there's an excuse for why there's that shelf full of bowling balls in "Fry and Leela's Big Fling" now. big grin

Hint: Farnsworth Lanes.

Pentium is the evil CPU.




I like that accuracy of computer-parts inside the robo-goat.

A robo-animal makes a comebackas well as President of the Network (with the same joke laff). This time it was a phone instead of laptop, but apparently the man holding President is still the same.

Two things I noticed, they changed Tarquin's skin colour from red to that dull beige-y colour, and second, the wire fence from this photo:


...is nowhere to be seen in the episode. Weird how they'd make so many changes so close to airing. Unless Comedy Central just released some really early concepts in the Countdown.

It look me a while to realise Tarquin was a different colour because of all the weird lighting conditions.

And speaking of colour, Executive Alpha got himself a new coat of paint just in time for "Calculon 2.0"

At the end of "Neutopia", the Borax Kid says:

"Well, I'd best mosey on down to the landing. Sounds like the Feldspar Queen is about to set sail."

In "Assie Come Home", he's in the Feldspar Queen playing poker.

Damn, I thought I'd be the first to point out Pimparoo!

You think those were pinatas of the YLL aliens (Rumbledy-Hoop, right?) or, y'know . . .  them, once the show went belly-up. Kids TV has a pretty short shelf life, and I wouldn't put it past Abner Doubledeal. wink

Either way, it was a nice nod to the fan-bashing the episode took. laff
