1000 years of progress, holosheds, forcefields, etc. replicators are probably in governement use too. The Italian governement probably just built a replica of the Leaning Tower when the original was stolen. Much easier than arguing with the Americans to get it back.

In "A Big Piece of Garbage", Mayor Poopenmeyer is afraid the garbage ball will be a hoax "...like global warming.." Yet, we know from "Crimes of the Hot," that global warming is very serious. Is the Mayor just incompitent?

The global warming Leela was talking about (and nuclear winter cancelled out) was caused by people burning fossile fuels. Later emission standards was adopted to prevent it from happening again.

The global warming in COTH was caused by robots violating the standards. Just because the first one was annuled doesn't mean a new one can't happen.

Then if thats true then howcome that fish bones that Zoidberg eats does not make a huge crater?

You are right about that penny thingy, it's just that the two flying objects don't follow the same law.

realistically most of the garbage ball would have burned up in the earths atmosphere. so garbage wouldnt be falling from the sky.

Yeah sure, the burger would go through the building, but it wouldn't make a hole roughly 100,000 times the size of it's own diameter

Depending on the size of the garbage ball, then alot would still get through.

Also, that burger has been out in outer space where things can travel at thousands of km/s so it could have easily blown that crater, and the fishbones, that was the wizard!

Anyone care to explain?


You could make the same observation about the White House. In "When Aliens Attack", its:

a. On Monument Beach

b. Destroyed.

But in "A Head in the Polls", Nixon crashes through the White House.

Also, in "A Big Piece of Garbage", why didn't the Middle New Yorkers (Halfway between Old and New New York  wink) just send the garbage ball into the Sun in the first place? One would have thought it easier to send something INTO the Sun, than having to have enough thrust/momentum to escape it's gravity?

Maybe I'm not remembering this properly but in Where No Fan Has Gone Before, Melllvar named his convention "Trekfest 3002." Shouldn't it have been 3003 by then?

Then again how come it is almost the exact same year there as it is on Earth...  roll eyes

3004, in fact. Perhaps Omega 3 is on some other time. Or how's this for a crazy theory, the Chronitons in 3x14 affected enough of the universe that time was reversed a while to compensate. Hmm, I despise stupid theorys, but that one seems tangeble. Or however that big word is spelt/means.

Another goof, the bad kind of goof, if you slow down the intro, you'll notice Smitty's 3D model is REALLY shoddy. It's terrible. Sickening even. I think he's in the first slowdown shot bit of the intro, in a tube.

Considering that the model is only seen for a very brief period of time, and is very, very rarely (if at all) used during the rest of the show, it wouldn't be viable to create an extremely accurate model.

On another note, in 'Lesser of Two Evils', Flexo opens his chest compartment, spraying chlorine gas over Fry. Bender is standing next to Fry when this happens.

In 'Crimes of the Hot', we see that Bender reacts violently with chlorine gas. So:
1) Why doesn't Bender react to the chlorine in 'Lesser of Two Evils' and...
2) Why doesn't Flexo react with the chlorine he's carrying around inside him?

Nope, 3002 is correct (IMO). Fry come to the future on new years eve 2999. After that we have 2 Xmas episodes (Xmas 3000 and Xmas 3001), and then WNFHGB.

Wind resistance slowed the fishbone down. Same reason why a ball of paper and a sheet of paper wont fall at the same speed.

Also, the episodes were supposed (hah!) to run concurrently with our time (+1000), so "Where No Fan Has Gone Before" should have aired in early 2002.

But Xmas Story was Xmas 3000 (2ACV04), A Tale Of Two Santas was Xmas 3001 (3ACV03) there wasn't a 4ACV Xmas episode but the 3ACV season was longer than the rest and since Where No Fan Has Gone Before was in the middle-ish of 4ACV I think it's stretching it for 3ACV and 4ACV to only last throughout 3002.

Unless the banner was digitally edited like the characters mouths are and it originally said 3003 but was changed, I do find it a little hard to believe. And I just remembered the time skips in Time Keeps On Slippin' would have chopped a few chunks out of 3002. Who knows how long it took to build the gravity pump and attach it to the ship.

We don't really know how long a season is. Neither Matt nor David have ever said that one production season equals one year (that's a Star Trek thing), so I'll say it's possibly.

Then again "Roswell That Ends Well" (3ACV19) was on September 21st 3002 and "Love And Rocket" (4ACV02) was on Valentines Day, so it looks like Melllvar made a little mistake.

I was thinking of Love And Rocket but couldn't remember if it was actually on Valentine's Day. I just assumed a production season lasted just under a year (1ACV01 to 1ACV13 was about 10 months? When is Labour Day in the US?)

It's usually the last weekend of the summer. So, roughly, it usually the first Monday of September.

That just further complicates things...because then 1ACV wouldn't nearly be as long as it should...

Dates for 1ACV aren't really that awkward.
1ACV01: 1st January 3000
1ACV02: Probably the first day back to work
1ACV03: Around 1st February 3000 (Hermes: I notice Fry has been here for a month...)
1ACV04: April 13th 3000.

And so on.

I don't know if this has alread been posted, there is a 98% chance it has but in "A Flight To Rember" the tray near the door dissapears. In the DVD audio commentry they try to cover it up by saying "...Zoidberg ate it"

Lucy Liu became famous on 'Ally McBeal', but in the Futurama universe there was no such show - they had 'Single Female Lawyer' instead. So, in the Futurama (ie, non-cowboy) universe did Lucy Liu appear in 'SFL' instead, and where did Fry develop his Liu-nacy if he hardly saw any episodes before being frozen? Did he go and see 'Payback' a bunch of times?
