I'm with SpaceGoldfish, "intergalactic" is a perfectly reasonable word to use in that context.

But "gal" is such a horrible word, it's such a "Sky" word :nono:...

'Gal' is a horrible word?  What, you hate 'lass' too?

Pretty much, but it's the context as well in this case. Sky are making the description sound so personal, and "gal" to me has connotations of a personal nature, as if they know or have a connection to the person described. This is Sky remember, who have proved on many occasions they have no real bond or connection with the Futurama universe given all of their horrendously inaccurate episode descriptions...

They might not, but we do.  I think of all the shitty things Sky do to Futurama, this is actually rather nice.  Leela is our intergalactic girl, our favorite cyclops, our 31st century lass.   It's not like they called her "that one eyed bint that everyone makes porn of."

I agree with Otis, 'gal' is a nasty 'Sky' word. :nono:

Okay, the descriptions are different on the Virgin TV Guide.

Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences

Alien leader Lrrr is consoled after a bungled invasion of Earth triggers a mid-life crisis.


Wow, I think they got one right... Anyway, the next one:

Mutants are Revolting

Leela is sent underground for being a mutant, though she's not the kind of girl to take things lying down.


Again, no 'The' in the title, and it says girl, not gal... :hmpf:

Oh, and EVERY description says 'Animated comedy series set in the year 3000.' GET IT RIGHT SKY.

For Bendin' In The Wind: A blast from the past as Fry and Bender salvage a vintage Volkswagen bus from the turbulent 1960s and return it to its tie-dyed glory. Guest starring Beck.
Nothing about Bender being broken or about the other crew or even why there in the bus?!?!

True, they are no longer in the year 3000 anymore. That description would only be correct for repeats of certain old episodes :nono:...

I always called them VW Campers, or VW Camper Vans, but a quick Google search seems to imply that they can be called VW Buses as well. Learnt something new :hmpf:...

Can they technically be called buses?  They don't follow the definition of a bus in my opinion.

« #209 : 08-23-2011 10:31 »

That's what I thought too, hence why I searched. At first I thought it was another error in the description, but the results make it difficult to say for sure. We have a conundrum...

I want a tram.  Not the eyesores you see prowling around Croydon but the beautiful old ones you used to get.

« #214 : 08-23-2011 14:01 »

Well, they have a great tram network in Manchester, and it's reasonably priced too. If the trams must be beautiful though (which sounds like something a female would be more interested in), then I guess you better move to San FranCisco...

Btw, another thing I hate about Sky is their call centre. About a million options and buttons to press, horrible waiting music and you just about give up the will to live by the time you get through. So glad I don't have to waste my time and money on them anymore...

Hmmm... most females don't really care about what their public transport looks like.  It's just something that gets them from the liberal arts college to the mall, and from the mall to their boyfriend's house.  

Judging the design appeal of trains and trams is more something sweaty anorak wearing trainspotters would do. :P

I love the streetcars in San Francisco.  I bought a ticket and rode them whenever was possible! (unfortunately the stupid 3 mobile people deleted all the photos off my phone when I needed it repaired).  I recently had to go to Sanny Fran on a uni trip... I need to go there again on my own.  My douchebag classmates ruined the whole experience for me.

Look, no matter what set of genitals I turn out to have, you are welcome to put whipped cream on them.  Or golden syrup if you prefer.

Now... what was this topic about?  Something about Europe?

If you're offering golden syrup, I'm in. I don't care if there are genitals involved or not. I love that stuff.

But screw the topic, I was about to weigh in on trams. I want trams that look like Toby from Thomas the Tank Engine.

Um... I think it's meant to be about Futurama on Sky, or Virgin with Sky on Virgin, and hold the whipped cream...

As for Futurama on Sky, I no longer care. I find I need to watch them a lot sooner than Sky would be airing them if I'm to read the comment threads before they grow to immense size and become impossible to get through anyway. Plus, I don't have Sky anymore.

As far as virgins (or Virgin) covered in whipped cream go, I'll pass. I want that golden syrup (and maybe custard). Hm. Now I'm pretty much going to have to watch Futurama whilst eating a bowl of golden syrup (or custard). Once I get a reasonably strange and yet acheiveable idea stuck in my head, I'm often compelled to do it just so I can say I did. Yes, I'm odd. No, I don't care.

Not only are the descriptions bad, but also why does the adverts use clips from older episodes? For example, just before they started showing Season 6 they showed adverts that used clips from the Movies.

Sky are too buisy catering towards it's new shitty comedy Trollied, and Mount Pleasant (which is better than Trollied at least). I hope that Comedy Central UK get permission to air Futurama in the UK, as well as The Simpsons, maybe.

No good can come of anything involved with Rupert Murdoch.

I really hope someone splashes him with holy water, or has him stand in direct sunlight.

I thought he owned a big stake in it, from before the merger in the 90s.  Even if he doesn't, we need to splash him with holy water.  Stakes in hearts won't work, because the blood is pumped throughout his body by means of a potent Satanic curse.   He never had a heart to begin with.
