No, not anymore. Now I've decided I want Futurama to spoof Doctor Who.

If it gets renewed for another season, then that's something to keep your fingers crossed for. Leela was partially named after Leela from Doctor Who, so I don't see why not.

I'd like to see a Zapp/Michelle relationship spark. I've speculate that they're made for each other. There wouldn't be much to ship, because it would work perfectly. Zapp Brannigan would continue in his position in DOOP, and Michelle would be a homemaker similar to the wives on "Desperate Housewives".

Well, Zapp and Michelle probably deserve each other....

Then again, I'm not sure if even Zapp deserves Michelle.

I agree Michelle is the embodiement of everything in a woman that would drive you to giving her a good slap !
Guys like Zapp I guess are more sad than bad.

Totally agree about the Zapp/Michelle stuff. They would work. Zapp would willingly submit to any woman who would have sex with him.

Haha Xan, I love that animated Dalek and when everybody understands eachother. Thanks for the cyber-hug by the way I needed it.

Zapp is really really annoying, I still don't think he deserves her, though I can see how it could work in the footballers wives context. It could be funny...

Sorry about the quad post; so many things I wanted to answer, I forgot to just answer them all in one post. Whoops.  smile

Xanfor: THM are my initals; and that's all I'll say on that. Towels, sadly, have nothing to do with it, although I do know where mine is; now if only I could find my electronic thumb...   wink

Good to see that consensus (of a kind, anyway) has broken out over Leela/Fry. About all we can do is see where the writers take them next. Hopefully, it's somewhere nice.

There's some room to manoeuver there - maybe Michelle gets too much, and Zapp bails, and she has to seduce him back to maintain the good life, or he strays and she punishes him. It'd work best as a comedy, 'cause they're both caricatures of a sort; the male chauvanist pig and the fickle shrew. But it'd a blast to read/watch, that's for sure. DH is space - hey, I'd buy that for a dollar.   smile

I lost mine too, damn. But at least I have my towel so there's the plus side. It makes me sad along with the other shit that's happened today. I couldn't resist the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy reference you made. I had to respond.

I agree in principal but seeing as how I feel like hell right now I lack the enrgy and drive to respond with a long winded answer. So short version, I sort of argee and I'll explain later.

Nope.
Confession: I don't think I've ever seen a full episode either. I mainly only like humorous sci-fi. I just can't take 'serious' sci-fi, well, all that seriously. Probably because it's been parodied so much.

(I do know just about enough about the Star Trek characters, though, to get references and stuff. And I did still enjoy WNFHGB; as with every Futurama ep, it had enough funny in it to offset whatever I didn't quite get).

Not quite. Lars and Fry had different experiences. Lars' epiphany was the realization that, well, he was 'Lars', the One that Leela fell in love with. In my rather twisted view, at least, the greatest obstacle to a potential relationship is the fear of rejection. He knew that all he needed to do was to wait a few years, and Leela would unequivocally be his.

Already done. I love Where No Fan Has Gone Before so funny all the references. Guys who like haven't seen it. It's worth the watch. So glad that I was forced to watch it by a Trek obssessed friend and family.

What does that mean in German?

Thanks Bend-her. Oh and what your saying about Lars is similar to what I've been trying to say. Lars and Fry had different experiences that shaped Lars make him different from Fry. If that made any sense that's great if it made no sense... well it's your problem for reading.

Watch every episode of the original Star Trek? I did that in 1966, 67, 68.  79 episodes about 60 good ones.
  Once Fry knows that He was Lars then perhaps he will look at Lars' life and see how to make those changes that will finally give him Leela.  I feel compelled to say that one of the things that hooked me on Futurama was the intensly sweet interplay between Fry and Leela.  I think that she knows that the only one for her is Fry and is in a desperate struggle to keep from being put in a situation where she gives herself to him and risks losing him like everything that she cares about.  The abandonment issue keeps her fighting to avoid commiting to Fry.

Ever notice that whenever the characters meet themselves they never get along (ie: The Farnswort Parabox, BBS)? They pointed that out in the comentary and I tend to agree. If I ever ran into another one of me it would lead to an epic battle to see which of us would get to live. There can only be one of me, I'm sorta like the Highlander.

Why is it that I make two Python references, both with the joke and the feigned translation, and yet Archonix gets fifty points for merely pointing it out? Afterwards?

Also, that isn't the joke. They never tell you what the joke is, they only tell you the one Hitler came up with as a counter-measure.

Hitler: "Mein Hund hat keine Nase."
Crowd: "Wie riecht er?"
Hitler: "Schrecklich!"

That is real German.

Well, if you correct some spelling (and make some changes based on typical German spelling), you can translate it to mean:

Wenn ist das nurnstuck git und slottermeier? Ya! Beigerhund das oder die flipperwald gesput!
When is the (Nurn)-piece (git) and (slottermeier)? Yes! Beige dog that, or the Flipper Forest is (gesput. Past tense verb?)!

Dass heißt: Es bedeutet nichts!   tongue
