Let's see if this actually works...

Come to think of it, by now it's a question of .5 points vs. zero, so I don't really care.

1.)Guy Caballero = [26]pts.
2.)Nerd-o-rama = [24]pts.
3.)Jicannon = [19.5]pts.
4.)hobojobo = [5]pts.
5.)laroquettespine = [4.5]pts.


Q12: How many character commentaries are there?
A: 0.

*SORRY laroquettespine, BUT WITH 4.5pts., YOU ARE ELIMINATED FROM Futurama Trivia Champion I.*

::Now to address the question. Billy West and John DiMaggio were the only voice actors to sustain their character's voice throughout an episode. But once a voice actor breaks out, and talks normally, the illusion is broken, and they stopped doing character commentary. Billy West was the only one to never break it, with Zoidberg and Fry.

A character commentary is any movie, television series, etc.., in which ONLY voice actors REMAIN IN CHARACTER THROUGHOUT THE FEATURE, WITHOUT BREAKING IT.
A character commentator is any voice actor who does a commentary in character, WHILE other people talk normally. (They can break it if they want to.)
If you've ever heard King of the Hill commentaries, for a few episodes, some voice actors sustained the character's voice throughout the entire commentary, and acted as if they were real people. (ex. Peggy says FOX wanted Hank to do a nude scene, but Hank refused. That obviously isn't true, since the characters do not exist. But since it's voice actors doing a character commentary in character, then they can say whatever.)
I know this sounds complicated, but that's how it is.::


[<*UPDATE*:
+Round 2 of 'Futurama Trivia Champion' will start on 10/27/2004 at (4:00p.m. Pacific Standard Time).
Round 2 will have 10 total questions. Same format as Round 1, and everyone once again starts at

Hey, if anyone makes pervious posts, it'll be I.

Well, it's been fun.  I would only suggest that future competitions are a little more...scheduled.  I'm only on the computer for about seven hours a day, five days a week, and, as much as I'd like to spend it all at PEEL, I can't.  For any future competitions, I'd like to see the competitors' schedules taken into consideration to "fair things up" all around.

Otherwise, good job Eyedol.

Is there any possibility that you could post the new question at 5 rather than four? I'm going to a cross-country running race until five, and I don't want to be left out.

*No problem. But I won't reset the time anymore. NEW START TIME IS 5:00p.m. PACIFIC STANDARD TIME.*

*And yes, I agree the scheduling of questions is not that great. But I originally posted a new question every other even hour from 4:00p.m.-10:00p.m. But barely anybody answered. I'll try to make a better formatted schedule for the next Futurama Trivia Champion game. (But no solid promises.)*

That was less than two hours man.  I don't think all of us check PEEL that often.

Anyway, this is a guess since I don't have the game, but given that the show's writers also wrote the game, they probably left out Amy Wong, the co-ed-hating bastards.

Dammit man, it may be midnight in Long Beach, but some of us live in a decent, God-fearing time zone where it's two in the morning and we have an 8am class.  But since I'm up anyway...

...he's knocked off the bed as Leela wakes up.

Also, I just noticed GC lives in the same time zone as me.  Hell, less than 100 miles from me.  My point remains valid, since I don't think he's in college.

*The time differences do suck, but it's too late to make a schedule. (As I said before, when I start Futurama Trivia Champion II, I'll ask all the signed up players what times will be convenient for them, and make up a schedule.)
When it gets down to 2 players, then I'll have to ask both of them what times they can be on, so each will have an equal amount of time to answer. (If your computer is slow, oh well. I can't do anything about that.*

That happened to me earlier. I think that it's because your message was identical to another message on the page. It glitches up and thinks that you posted the same message twice.
