Highlighting 'dialogue' was a bit pointless Beanoz, but maybe they hadn't fully decided if they wanted the Professor to say that or not. ;)

There definitely needs to be more Doctor Who references in Futurama. I'm surprised that hasn't been anything substantial in it's entire run, I'm sure X Cohen and Co are fans

Doctor Who is bloody awful; keep it out of Futurama, I say.

Is it?  I always thought of it as a bit more low budget than other science-fiction (especially American where - unlike the BBC - they have big monies!), but is there anything wrong with the plots?  I am sure some episodes are better than others, but 'bloody awful'?

A subtle reference to say, the TARDIS or a doctor who monster could be fun, but nothing from the Smith era for Atheismo's sake! That show is becoming a bad soap with Amy and Rory! However, I will continue to watch out of curiosity  :laff:

One of the Comic Books was called 'Doctor What', I think that's been like the only reference ever. :)

I only ever watched an ep and a bit of Doctor Who and I didn't like it. Just as well it's not in Futurama because I'd never get the references...

Wait... aren't you... British?

Well, to deter from the subject, as this is still a Futurama news thread, another character design popped up today, courtesy of the now-redeemed (at least in my opinion) Matt Tobey.



He also gives a description of the plot for the (assumed) next episode-in-line, "Fry am the Eggman" and hints at what the new character may be (he's probably wrong, but that's a part of the job).

Quote from: Matt Tobey
Today we get our first introduction to the upcoming new episode Fry Am the Eggman, which sees Fry nurturing an alien egg out of which hatches a monster. This is a design for a character named Mr. Peppy, who I'm guessing is either the alien monster or the obstetrician who handles the delivery. Hard to tell for sure.

Well, if you want me, I'll be over on the not-nearly-as-large speculation thread.

Is it?  I always thought of it as a bit more low budget than other science-fiction (especially American where - unlike the BBC - they have big monies!), but is there anything wrong with the plots?  I am sure some episodes are better than others, but 'bloody awful'?

It's popular, but it's really lowest common denominator TV like shows such as The X Factor (current UK equivalent of American Idol).
The show is horribly written, poorly acted for the most part, full of complete bollocks and constant deus ex machina, and worst of all -about 80% of the episodes are actually gripping for about 40 minutes, only to turn around and give you the crappest, un-thought-through ending imaginable so that they can get out of whatever balls they've gotten themselves into this week within 5 minutes, leaving the show ready to go again next week. It's just so full of logical holes, but... welll, you know.

These complaints are aimed at the modern-day Doctor Who rather than the original series which I've not seen much of, but from what I know, the original series is worse.

Yeah, and one of my classmates at school was in Dr Who as well, but that doesn't mean to say I'm gonna like it...

As for the news, that new monster looks interesting. I always love the sheer scope Futurama can have in its plots...

I'm not too fussed about a Doctor Who reference, but a sly one might be nice.

Also, woo, more plot details and new stuff! :D

These complaints are aimed at the modern-day Doctor Who rather than the original series which I've not seen much of, but from what I know, the original series is worse.

Some episodes from both eras fit this description. Some don't. Most of the RTD-Tennant run is terrible, but Matt Smith and Christopher Eccleston have delivered some good performances and had some brilliant episodes. The revived series' "Dalek" for example was a fantastic return to what made Doctor Who so popular back in the day.

Your complaints should be addressed to Tennant's doctor, rather than the new run as a whole. Some of the stuff they've come up with (particularly Moffatt) has been very good.

I'd love to see a shout-out to Doctor Who in Futurama. Perhaps a TARDIS somewhere, or even a sonic screwdriver joke. Something small, not terribly obvious, but instantly recognisable to Whovians across the globe.

As for "really lowest common denominator TV", I'd say you should rethink that. Again, Tennant is the guilty party, with his legions of squee-ing fangirls who'd watch him take a shit if it was televised in three parts. The whole franchise is generally beloved of nerds, geeks, and dorks everywhere. The cardboard sets and rubber monsters (of the older episodes) are looked upon fondly and with the same admiration as many classic B-movies. The incredibly nonsensical plots and their baffling resolutions are often the sort of thing you'd have gotten from Red Dwarf, but with the silliness dialed down a little and the "drama/action" dialled up to eleven so as to thrill the younger viewers (remember the show was originally aimed at seven to twelve year olds). It's mindless, switch-your-brain-off scifi entertainment. Not lowest-common-denominator. There's a crucial difference.

Now excuse me, I'm off to finish reversing the polarity of the neutron flow in my deus ex machina.

New storyboard from "Fry am the Eggman". Bender and Fry go to the drive-thru.




Yo, Freida!  Where can I find a synopsis to Fry Am The Eggman?

Frida already quoted the closest thing we've got to a synopsis in her post.

Last time they did the countdown it was 30 days with no weekend posts that covered the first 7 episodes. This time it's 50 days with weekend posts that has so far covered 8 episodes.

All 13 episodes covered?: Outlook good.

Yeah, me too. That's the reason why I added that picture in my post, but I forgot to mention it.

I'd also like to see some material from "Overclockwise" released, so we can confirm what this episode's about.

It's not a fetish or anything.

Where's Freako? He'd get it.

On topic: Smart Ass Teen was my favourite part of that storyboard. Now when I watch that episode I'll know that they're called Smart Ass Teen and it'll make it even funnier.

"Fry Em The Eggman" is the first plot in ages that I feel absolutely indifferent about.
