First off coldy's Shatner/Krik picture  laff.

I like the Fry/Leela shippy pictures. Yes Fry does look like Zach Braff in that one picture.

I'm not sure why Lars doesn't strike me as Fry.I guess it has to do with the way he matured. Lars definatly not the way that I would like Fry as he gets older.

After a night of hard drinking, Leela wakes up to a surprise - and not for the first time!




I would give credit for this pic, if I knew who drew it.

Right on sisterwoman! 

I think the way Leela so casually tossed Fry aside for Lars strains the limits of belief.  She was more like a plot device than a true character in BBS.  Now if there had been a scene in which she revealed her reasons for rejecting Fry (the same old ones, new ones, whatever) then we could either say "yes, she's a bitch alright" or "well, she does have her reasons" but she was never given that opportunity in BBS.

I think Keeler and Cohen realized that no treatment of her feelings towards Fry would meet with much acceptance given the way she acts in BBS, so they ignore her story and concentrate on telling it from Fry/Lars' POV.

The only nod towards Leela's true feelings is the peck on the cheek at the end. Which I'm sure we all agree has become a bit hackneyed.

Come to think of it, didn't someone do a fake movie poster of a live-action Futurama movie, wit Zach Braff starring as Fry?

I agree about Seth Green as Fry. I really hate how the eye is photoshopped gross. But ugh if a live action movie was ever made, I would  puke. Why would they ever do that. time toget back on topic.

You definatly have a point there. They never really explained anything Leela did or what she was thinking at the end so its probably going to be explored more in another movie.

Not quite.

I actually think that the characters and premise of Futurama would make a cool live-action movie. Call me insane, because I am to some degree, but all the elements of a really fun space opera are there, with some shit that would look wicked on the big screen.

Though I think a live-action adaptation would want to differentiate itself from the series somewhat - make itself a little more serious, still lighthearted but more focused on the sci-fi and dramatic elements of the series.

Also, as a further differentiation, it shouldn't actually call itself Futurama. It should have a different title, like Planet Express, or something like that. So the show and the adaptation would stand apart from one another.

I would love to see it.

First off we're all insane to some degree.

Second, I wouldn't mind a live action movie too much if they didn't differentiate from the series too much. It would be a whole separate TV show so yeah they'd change a lot. I don't know why but that's something that's always bugged me with stuff. Changing my beloved stuff so much just bugs me alot like when they adapt books to movies and what not. The differences always drive me up a wall. so I have no idea where I'd stand on this anymore. Zombie Jesus I've been confusing my self so much latly.

Could it be that they're just setting up the next movie? Yes, it's cruel to leave us shippers in the lurch like that, but it's always nice to dream!

As for a live-action Futurama, I don't think it'll work so well. Especially if there's any severing of body parts, or Zoidberg climbing out of his shell. Ick.

Bender/Fry

By Indigo-sorrow on Deviant art.





This one amuses me to no end.. Fry's facial expression, and Leela's disgusted expression especially...


Fry: he decided not to let go.





Bender:  Whenever i said, 'Kill all humans', I'd always whisper 'except one.'  Fry was that one.

That Fry/Bender comic is cute.  smile

A relationship doesn't have to be sexual btw. The Fry/Bender thing can be cute without it meaning they're dating or some weird crap like that.

I also enjoy the occassional friendshippy scenes between Bender and Leela - which are kinda touching considering how much the two of them usually rub each other the wrong way.

I know relationships don't have to be sexual. I like stuff that Bender/Leela friendship because yeah they do tend to annoy eachother but thet get along and that doesn't seen to get shown too much. I love friendshippy stuff and relationshippy stuff so either is fine with me.

I love the Bender/Leela relationship too.  They've had some good moments between them.  Particularly in ALOHO and APTR.  Oh and TWOF of course.











Bender: (turning to Leela) Really?  I tried to kill you?!
Leela: It was very sweet of you Bender.

Second.

And I think my favorite Bender/Leela interaction would probably have to be in The Honking, as in that quote above. Or maybe My Three Suns, when they're talking on the vidphone.

Ooh, I forgot about their interaction in My Three Suns..  That was a good one too.



Bender: Look, you don't like me, and I don't like you -
Leela: You don't like me?  I like you.
Bender: Oh.. what is it you like best about me?
---
(can't remember who said this..): well, is she coming?
Bender: I don't know, but I do know she likes my 'in your face' personality.

I also love the moment in ALOHO when Jackie tells Leela what she really thinks and Leela starts crying and Bender sees and then kicks everyone out of the pizza place.

One of the reasons I love Futurama so much is the relationship between the three main characters: Fry, Leela, and Bender.  I'm hoping for more Bender/Leela moments in the future movies. 

And of course more Fry/Leela   wink  Get them together already!



Hooray for FUTURAMA related pictures!

That's partly why I enjoy the early episodes/the whole first season so much; the focus was more on the friendship (and occasional conflicts) of all three of the principal protagonists, before it evolved more into Fry chasing Leela.

Still, doesn't the "cushion" bruise? Honest question. Heh, I remember Rahel from The God of Small Things wanted to find out the hard way through most of school, so she would bump in to other girls on purpose.

Hey, in all the alternate-ship stuff, looks like nobody's talking about Amy and Fry. Then again, that was just two episodes. Or why not Zoidberg and Farnsworth? "I'm sooo in to you!"  smile

How about some Leela/Zoidberg action?



Leela had investigated Zoidberg's species thoroughly.  She knew exactly where his erogenous zones were...
