El-Man, an apology from me for repeating what you said more succinctly than I did. I got excited and didn't see you there.

Don't sweat it, we all get excited now and then. smile

And WB, BTW.

Logo contest?

There's actually a bar around the stage that I sat them on, since they were difficult to manipulate onto chairs..

It was enough that I could find a 'strip club' picture without a partial-fully naked lady in it. Or a completely naked male and female.. This is what happens when you don't use 'safe search'.

It seems like some shippers who like Fry and Leela seem to want Futurama to be the "Fry and Leela Show".   And are upset with Leela (as I've mentioned before), because she rejected Fry so much, because some shippers believe they belong together.

It's like some are like this, "Something horrible happened to Leela!"  "Good!  Let's have a ticker tape parade!" 

"Something bad happened to Bender."  "Don't care about him, only care if Fry and Leela get together".

"Something bad happened to Fry!"  "OH, NO!  How Terrible!  He has to get better!  Fry is sacred!" 

It's like some fans only care if Fry and Leela get together and nothing else.  Like some people who didn't like season 6 only liked "The Late Philip J. Fry" episode and no other one.

I guess some fans don't want to believe that there's more to Futurama than just Fry and Leela getting together.  I watch the show for the fun adventures, the mishaps, and the social commentary humor.

I do agree that a lot of people are quick to hate on Leela (shippers and non-shippers alike) because of how she treated Fry for the first four seasons and the first three movies, but I don't think there are honestly people who watch this show solely for the romantic gobbledygook. I mean, a lot of my enjoyment of Futurama is derived form the character-driven stuff (and the Fry/Leela relationship is a component of that)--but all that means is that I can appreciate an episode like "Lethal Inspection" (which examines Bender and Hermes's relationship) as much as I do "The Late Philip J. Fry." And that the ship merely enhances my enjoyment of, say, "The Prisoner of Benda," but is not the sole reason I dig that episode so much (in fact, I enjoy it in spite of how nauseating I find the Leela-Farnsworth/Fry-Zoidberg hook-up).

For a moment, I thought Xanfor was going to link to TV Tropes, which would have been downright evil of him. 'Course, just thinking of TV Tropes makes me want to go there. Shit.

I just saw it as cementing her newfound willingness to accept both her attraction to Fry, and Fry's own impulsiveness. Plus, Leela's always seemed a little... easy... to me. I mean, Zapp got into her panties. Along with a couple of other less-than-totally-worthy characters.

Fair enough. But I agree with Louis that her off-handedness about the whole thing (particularly being unperturbed by the Professor's cock-block) was a little odd and out-of-place.

Oh, screw it. Guys, I've read several posts analyzing the "mile-deep" line and always getting... I don't know... "confused" by it. While I am not sure, my take is that the joke is that Leela thinks that Fry is asking her to join a club that is literally only about being a mile underground. Planes are an archaic technology in a time when most people own flying cars, so the phrase "mile-high club" doesn't exist in the 31st century. It was never sexual from Leela's side. Sorry if I came off exasperated but this been bothering me for a while (since I've fooled myself into thinking that that is definitely what the joke is).

Edit: Why do I skip posts when I feel I have something to contribute? El-Man, an apology from me for repeating what you said more succinctly than I did. I got excited and didn't see you there.

Personally I disagree. There are pleanty of words and phrases in the English language that we know roughly what they mean but origin of the phrases are usually only high level English students or those with a love for entymology.  So I think it is likely Leela knew what Fry was getting at even if she did not know where it came from.

Although it does raise the point of how they can understand each other at all.  I know there are some changes like X-mas and axe but the English language of 1000 years ago is completly different from current English (you only have to look at Chaucer to see how different).  Or we could just take the line as something throw away and not look into it too deeply :P

I want Fry and Leela to go on a proper date as part of a future episode. That would be so awesome. I mean, we've seen them go on semi-dates before, but not really as a proper couple. I would love to see them really go out together, with all the tiny stuff around it, Fry being clumsy, Leela being embarrassed, some other guy hitting on Leela, et cetera. It would be so cool...

^ LOL Cool. big grin

This thread is about Fry and Leela's relationship, right?

I think if they both really put effort into making it work, they could have a long lasting bond. There is this song I love and one of the lyrics is "I know it's all your fault but I like it and you love me". That reminds me of their relationship.

Second. I'm actually kind of annoyed that we didn't get a scene like that in the first batch of new episodes, if only because it would have followed somewhat organically from the declarations of love in both ItWGY and "Rebirth." Seeing their first real date could have been all kinds of adorable.

Of course, I still don't think the writers consider Fry and Leela a real couple--more like friends who have affirmed their romantic love for one another but are reluctant to label the relationship for whatever reason (ratings?). If they're supposed to get together for "real" in "Overclockwise," which was supposed to tie up some loose ends on the off-chance that these next thirteen episodes were the last of the series, it's possible we'll get a first date-ish scene in the new batch of episodes next year.

In other news: I've been doing a rewatch of the series (a slow one; I'm still in the middle of season two), and have discovered that a lot of the jokier, not-remotely-romantic episodes have some really nice Fry/Leela banter and such. This moment, from "I, Roommate," stuck out in particular:

Leela: Look at yourself. You're a wreck. You've got to find a new place to live.
Fry: Is that an invitation?
Leela: Love your optimism, Fry.

Nice work EL.

Unfortunantly one of the other site has dirtified my mind and all I can see is that it would not be that tricky to make a naughty version of those poses.  Personnally I blame the short sighted nocturnal creature that dwells and posts on the inferred site.

Still good job

There's a force-field keeping air around their asteroid. Which also has an artificial gravity generator to stop them drifting away. As well as a small portable heater, so that they don't freeze to death. It's the Rolls Royce of asteroids.

Sort of, but more about the writers handling the relationship, writing "shippy" episodes (episodes that include the relationship).

That actually looks more like an elephant to me.

Or wait... HEY! Planet Express ship! What the... what the hell are you...

They're watching, damn it! Oh... oh god... that's... that's disgusting, Leela.

And with that, the shippy feeling of the thread vanishes like a tiny dust mote in the vast, cruel vacuum of interstellar space.
