Yea, I remember hearing DXC mention that in an earlier interview; I can hardly wait for the planned Fry + Leela resolution/catharsis- 10 years is a long time  big grin

I'm abit skeptical about this though. I've known they were going to "resolve" the Fry/Leela thing with ITWGY for a while but "resolve" can mean alot of things. You could say (before BBS came out) that it was "resolved" in Devil's Hands for example. I personaly take resolved to mean a real end, you know a good one.

Kindred spirits they may be but isn't there just a hint of irony in the fact that, in tBwaBB, the two characters who seem unwilling (or unable) to limit themselves to single-partner relationships should end up alone in a universe with only each other?

Oh, and I liked how, in the mass 'date with Yivo' collage shot, everyone goes out with one tentacle except for Colleen who has three!

I find interesting that the only people who objected to the relationship with Yivo had either one or three eyes.

In addition to the fact that Yivo had one eye.

And the scene where Leela punches Zapp in the face had some pretty apparent 'one-eye' symbolism.

Bit of a stretch?

I tend to only notice the double-face-punchism. Don't fuck with Leela.

Its good to hear movie three will be just a no strings fun adventure, and REALLY good to hear movie 4 will not just feature Fry / Leela, but that will BE the movie.

Good point. I can't imagine the ending will be so conclusive that more can't happen should the show return, but I suppose they don't have to maintain continuity either (proven by the current return after Devil's Hands).

What they need to do is take my advice and realise that not only could the show survive Fry and Leela getting together but it would create tons of hilarious opportunities. The best example I can come up with is Bender getting jealous and trying to break it up. Think of the comedic potential!

1: That was similar but not the same. The attempt to break it up was a pirate themed invasion.

2:I came up with it years ago.

Bender wasn't trying to break them up he was trying to make heaven available for the robots.

I don't want Fry and Leela together. Though there could be good potential I just want them to find other people and be friends.

Bender won't split them up, if you payed any attention to BWABB, Leela is the only one who Bender could tolerate losing Fry's attention to, but he CAN tolerate it because he actually likes her. Not to mention she knows how to switch him off if he misbehaves.

But really, I don't mind one way or the other. I really don't see how comedic potential is lost if they get together. If anything they just go from rejection jokes to marriage problem jokes.

It would be good to see them dating at the end of ITWGY, it would allow a huge amount of potential for the series should it return, let the suspense keep going because everyone will be waiting for the wedding, but also let them turn relationships on / off on a by episode basis. It sounds rough but it is important to have episodes that aren't focusing on some characters relationships, you have to have the no strings attached random adventures without the "but how does that make X feel when Y does!!?!?!?!?". If they are dating you can go back to old style adventures, have more interesting interaction between the two and feel confident any major shippyness will be addressed on a "date night" episode :P

My thoughts exactly. I sometime prefer the older episodes for specifically that reason.

For all the high comedic value of Torgo overall, I think I had to love his theme music the most. Monotonous, yet creepily memorable.

For highly comedic effect, take all the scenes where the women are fighting and add the Benny Hill theme tune.

Scruffy would be the obvious choice, but fortunately there's no one on Futurama even approaching that level of shudder-inducing creepiness.

Incidentally, I'm not sure anything has ever made me sob with laughter as much as certain episodes of MST used to do. Ahh, good times.

Shakespeare angers up my blood.

Posted in the movie news thread, but:  http://www.slashfilm.com/wp/wp-content/images/benders-game.jpg  Benders Game cover art.

The possible scenarios of Leela telling Fry to "hop on for a ride" are numerous and hilarious.

As usual, the cover is an homage to old horror posters. The running joke places Leela as the strong hero (typical male character) and Fry as the helpless (hapless?) woman. Pretty much like the show has always been....

"Manos" was a good MST3K episode.

I finally picked up MST3K: The Movie on DVD the other day.

Well except for the BBS cover. Though this might be because he's the hero of the movie in the end. Or at least a form of him is.
