It wouldn't ruin the show, but I like the situation how it is now. I think it is sweet  big grin

The only problem with them getting together is I love when Fry goes out of his way for Leela, and that probably wouldn't happen as much if they were together

I think that if Fry and Leela got together permanently, it would sort of ruin the purpose of the show. But, it would be pretty cute if they got together for just one episode...  love

Wha?

Something needs to happen to the Ship, things haven't progressed that far from the moment that Bender spoiled in Space Pilot. While I love what they have done with the ship(obviously,) it needs to go somewhere. Devil's Hands provides for a good launching point for wherever it goes next.

Sorry for the misunderstanding, HopelessWhatshisname   wink . Just go to The Leela Zone and look at Sophie Fenwick's fanfic, 'Leela's Affair'. Oh, wait, DON'T. It is the most un-shippy fanfic out there. It's based on the premise that Fry would stop caring. For more info about it without reading it, look here.

Double-post: 

From the thread about 'Leela's Affair', I forgot that I posted this one week prior to the announcement of Futurama's return:

On a unrelated and unconfirmed change of subject - I was at the RDS Test Site earlier today and somebody supposenly 'in the know' posted on June 11, 2006 that the Rough Draft Studio specialist were finishing one project and are going to start with the first Futurama DVD storyline late August or early September.

It may be legit, or it may be bullshit.


That was one of my two sources that told me about the revival of Futurama.  One week later all hell broke loose with the announcement by Katie and John.  My other source continues to laugh at PEEL and PEEL'ers espcially the ones with the 'I have a bad feeling about this'.

The Leela/Fry arc finale will be one of the first eps made and will be held until the end of the series.  Groening wants the 4 DVD's and 30 episodes on CC to wind the stories up.  He has no desire to see Futurama become what The Simpsons has become - tired and wore out.  13 eps is the beginning with the option to make maore eps in 13 episode installments.

CC is said to be very gung-ho about getting the new eps and if the ratings are good enough, they will probably order the 30 eps that Groening wants over the 5 year period.

Some things we will see with the new eps:

Leela and Fry becoming almost inseperable as friends.  This will happen after the resolution of her being identified 'The other'.

Robot God.

The Space Pope.

The DVD's are a different story - even though the voice actors are to show up at RDS next week, only the basics of the first DVD have been finalized.  But one thing to be sure - there will be stuff for us 'lifeless shippers' to enjoy.

You can be forgiven, at the rate I'm writing you probably WILL be a senior by the time I've finished...

The good news is that I've nearly finished an installment, hopefully I can get it to Doug to beta in the next few days.  smile

I read about half of that, then I stopped 'cause I disagree with almost all of her assumptions. I WOULD rip it, but it's been done before... (And I'm lazy)

Why 30 eps and why a 5 year period? 30 eps is just slightly over 1 season (Fox season that is) Why is Comedy Central so into short seasons?

It should take some time, and they should grow as people while they grow as friends. Once they've gotten over their individual hang-ups it is likely they'll be happy for a long time to come.

It should happen in the last episode.

Don't worry. They will. They will.   wink

Isn't that what the Cyberhouse rules/The Why Of Fry is about?
There again, Leela has never been jealous when Fry has been in a relationship (e.g Morgan, Michelle)

Groening was on a show on G4 two weeks ago(I watched it but I wasn't at home to capture on my TiVo) and he said he wants 30 episodes (in addition to the DVD's).  He needs that many to close out the arcs and intoduce some new characters.  I'm sure that he'd love to see Futurama have a strong 5 year run, but that's probably won't happen.  He did say that The Simpsons has become stale and even though he's making money from The Simpsons, he doesn't have much to do with the show anymore.  He did say that he had 100% control of the Futurama DVD's and that CC was being more lenient with him than FOX about the upcoming episodes, however he still has to answer to FOX since they are the ones who owns the rights to the series.

He also said that some scripts were revised from the 5th season, some are new and that there are rough outlines for 30 complete scripts.  He said all the voice actors are back, DXC is back, most of the writers are back and he's personally speaking to Kristen Gore about doing some scripts and that he has approached Al Gore to be in an episode.

He also said that he had already said too much and would probably be hearing from FOX that evening (he laughed when he said that).

It was an interesting 5-6 minutes, only a few comments about The Simpsons and a lot about Futurama.

Thanks for the word Ralph. I haven't been able to find it on YouTube/the G4 website, damn. On the up side, Ralph's commentary is excellent and I'm probably not missing much.

And finally from Wikipedia:

According to Attack of the Show! on G4, David X. Cohen and Matt Groening will produce 30 new episodes.

Ralph, you mentioned that the 30 eps would be spread over 5 years. Is that true? That would equal only 6 episodes per year.

I have no idea about the 30 eps.  The 13-16 are confirmed by CC.  Groening says he wants 30 eps to completely close all the arcs that are still present.  CC has the option to buy more episodes in allotments of 13 (much like Southpark).

The part that I posted from Wikipedia has been removed (about the 30 episodes).

I do know that I watched the interview with Groening when he made the statement about wanting 30 episodes.  All we can do is hope the ratings are good enough for CC and FOX to order more episodes.  (Even though CC has the exclusive rights for 5 years starting in 2008, FOX will still own the series and can do as they please with it in 2013)

Anyway we look at it, at least we're getting new episodes in 18 months.

I'm more interested in what the DVD's are going to be like - with Groening having complete control and no network censors to deal with, I'm hoping we'll see the true genius of DXC and Groening unleashed.

Billy West has been silent about Futurama since Katey's appearence on The Late, Late, Late Show.  He did place one comment on his website that he was tired of getting his head bashed in.  It's not by the fans, but by FOX and RDS.  All the VA are now under gag orders and can't say anything unless authorized by FOX first.  Still, if they are going to do only 16 episodes, then why are they starting 18 months ahead of time?  The turn-around time is not that bad.

At least we know we have the episodes and the DVD's coming our way.

I kinda hope we have a Fry/Leela wedding for the last ep - this time without a divorce.

That reminds me of another interview that I need. If anyone has Sagal's or Groening's interview and are willing to pass it on to me, or knows where I can find it, I would super appreciate it.


Time will tell on the new episodes vs. movies debate. The safe money is probably on the movies.

Hmmm...Leela and Fry getting together. SUPER!!!  love Their differences would be resolved if they spent more time together.I heard that there will be at least one movie in 2007, although I have heard others say it was 2008. I choose to think that my sources are reliable, so perhaps there is some hope for next year.

This is getting cliche and annoying. If unrequited love can make it this far through the series, how is any number of episodes of shared romantic love supposed to kill the series? I thought this was a progressive show, why are the fans so afraid of change? I am a shipper, but I'll be happy no matter what Matt, DXC, and Ken do.

whoa, whoa! steady there. remember that there are shippers all around you. i'm not saying it WILL be a bad thing. i'm just saying that we won't have as many funny quirks that Fry does to impress Leela.
"Hey! Letters like "U' and 'R' can form words like 'you ' and 'are'! Here, Leela- U-R-2-Cute."
"Possibly. What's your point?"
that ALWAYS makes me laff. big grin
you have an argument, too, HS. maybe this excellant team of writers can keep the comedy juice flowing.
But, comedy aside, it would be a little more dramatic if the last thing we see is them getting together. movie-esque, i know, but it works.

Ah, this is the stem of the argument, do you see the drama and comedy as one and the same, or as two separate machinations? I don't fear loosing the comedy due to a shift in the drama because I see them as separate.

That's the problem, it's not a movie, it's a TV show. You can't hold back the bombshells for the end of the series. (On the flip side if you drop too many you become a soap-opera.)

aha. i see where you're going know. i just had an epiphany, there. hmm. youve got a point. funny how we're all shippers, and the main point is that we want them to get together, and in that sense we are united. but its every shipper for themselves when it comes to HOW they should get together. what's more, there is no gurantee they will get together. although if they dont Matt Groening will have a lot of very angry fans waiting at his doorstep for the next time he steps out of his house.

hopeless shipper, you have raised yourself a good argument. and seeing as we're all friendly shippers here, i find that your way to get Fry and Leela together has just as much or more potential than mine. I salute you

"no gurantee"? Now I'm hurt.

Maybe it's the "Hopeless" part, but it seems so inevitable after The Devil's Hands. Hell it seemed like the only logical thing after The Sting.
