winna told me winna was an acronym.. when in name need anonymity or something spooky like that.  And there were some kind of rules, like you can't tell people how to be winna, or something like that.

I totally agree with your analysis on 4chan, although the shadowy powers meet in lots of places.  People are pretty powerful, they can throw rocks and stuff or say things.

You don't have to give anything back to futurama.  If you got something from futurama, or from here, I think paying it forward is the best way to go.  That's real appreciation:  using the things you've been given.

I think small forums like PEEL are better for casual conversations compared to the monolith that is reddit. The way comments are sorted there makes it impossible for them to be seen unless they're posted early in the thread's lifespan.

PEEL is a community. I have always recognized PEEL as being the most upper-brow forum I know of. Before I was on PEEL I lurked for like three years. The etiquette was quite intimidating back then. PEELers are astute & blunt. We didn't dick around in on-topic conversations (unlike the current conversation, but PEEL is more of a graveyard nowadays).

Reddit is kind of like tumblr, just not a total circlejerking cesspool. After twenty-four hours, activity in a thread dives as it loses its relevance to the timeliness. People don't quote others in a greater conversation of a thread like here; they reply to each other & expand the conversation outward instead of upward. The indentation set-up allows for conversations to flow with the topic which in turn invites tangents.

What boards do you lurk/post on on 4chan, Frida?
I've been a regular on 4chan for over a year now.

/co/ (Comics and Cartoons), /vp/ (Pokemon), & a little bit of dabbling in /pol/ (Politically Incorrect), but I can only take it in small doses with all the Neonazis cramping up the place.

4chan is the internet at its top potential & humanity in the raw. 4chan is wonderful because everybody there is anonymous. You can post anything you want & people will either believe you or belittle you & call you a hack. Under the guise of anonymity, it doesn't matter what you do or say. You can voice your opinion or thought, be scrutinized harshly, then say something the exact same somewhere different & have the thought appreciated. It allows for the any thought, be it soft or brash or extreme, to be heard. And when somebody validates your thought or comment on 4chan, you know that they are being judgment yet genuine because there's nothing stopping the individual otherwise from berating you. The creatives, the hidden forces that sway society mingle on 4chan. Brilliance has no face there. You gotta have a thick skin & thick stomach for 4chan. I never really went onto 4chan before last year because I knew I wouldn't be able to handle it emotionally. PEEL developed my confidence in participating in forums. I doubt I could ever give back what I got from PEEL, but if I am the greatest Futurama fan in the world, maybe I can give a little bit of my life & experience to the series.

Wow, I sound fruity. Like, fruitier than my namesake.

Thank you winna for editing your post that was hurting my neck. I've been playing Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow as I type this post while my kitty cat steps on my keyboard.

That's very deep, Frida. Really. I dabbled in 4-chan back in the day, but only like maybe once a week, if that.

And Peel has been tremendously good to me. Given me confidence to travel across the country every year, now.

Futurama-adjacent news, everyone!

"Futurama Creator Developing History Museum Sitcom for NBC."

Apparently all that Nerdist stuff with Chris Hardwick's paid some handsome dividends for DXC. I can't speak for Mr. Hardwick's creative output, but I've always been pretty damn fond of the other guy's work, so I'll definitely keep an eye out for this show when (if) it premieres.

Ooh! I'm glad he's doing something else. I've found his lack of other projects very strange since Futurama went off the air.

I think Futurama was his baby, and he kept involved with Futurama on the back end.  It's probably been enough time since Futurama was aborted that he can comfortably move onto other things.

Same here. In fact, I have been thinking about this quite a bit lately. It seems like somebody who has had so much success on two major broadcast cartoons (The Simpsons and Futurama) would have moved on to another project by now. He doesn't seem to be involved in Matt Groening's new show Disenchantment (though many who were involved in Futurama seem to be; also, Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein will be executive producers on that show, which is greatly exciting to me).

I hope DXC's new show turns out well, as it should with him in charge.

He's one of the writers on Disenchantment.

He spoke about it in his interview on the Nerdist podcast following the "Radiorama" episode.

Ah, thanks for the reminder. I listened to that podcast, but forgot that tidbit of info. (Plus, it wasn't listed on the Wikipedia page. :nono:) That makes Disenchantment even more promising, then.

Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein will be executive producers on that show, which is greatly exciting to me).

Agreed! I was never overly-enthused by Weinstein's solo work on Futurama (though I am a pretty big advocate for the much-reviled "A Farewell to Arms," which I daresay is his best episode), but he and Oakley together are responsible for two of the best seasons of The Simpsons and, as writers, at least two of my all-time favorite episodes of the series ("Sweet Seymour Skinner's Baadasssss Song" and "Sideshow Bob Roberts"). I've seen most of Mission Hill, too, and while I don't necessarily mourn it as a forgotten gem canceled far too soon, it's also pretty good.

Which is all just to say I'm glad these two crazy kids are teaming up again. It certainly makes me more excited for Disenchantment--which, based on what little we've heard of the show so far, I have mixed feelings on. I'm not a big fantasy fan (I'm actually not a big sci fi fan, either, but I'm certainly more into time travel and spaceships and aliens than I am, like, dragons and castles and sword fights), and while I think Matt Groening is a smart and talented guy, the success of his flagship shows has always seemed to depend not-insignificantly on the writers and animators surrounding him. So knowing a few familiar names are already on-board does inspire a degree of confidence, at least for me.

I love Mission Hill! I have the full series, as well as cinematics and scripts from unfinished episodes. Though I wish the show got the opportunity to thrive (many WB shows from that era received the same fate), I appreciate having a series I can watch the full way through in just a few hours. I rewatch that series once every year or two.

And I completely agree that they make an amazing duo.

This isn't really Futurama news but Vanity Fair recently released a video of Phil LaMarr's famous character voices where he talks about what is was like working for each of those roles. I'm sure you can easily search it up on youtube. During the video, LaMarr revealed that when he first began doing voice work for Futurama, he didn't have the jamaican accent we all know and love today. In fact, it was something requested by Matt Groening after the first few episodes. Neat info! Looking back to the second episode, I can sort of see it now.

I didn't even know what a Jamaican accent sounded like until I played GTA IV.

Are there many Jamaicans living in America? I've never met one.

There's a pretty large Jamaican-American population in New York City, so Hermes's accent isn't entirely out of left field in that regard, I suppose.

I like the series full and a few days ago it occurred to me to go to the computer to see if I could get a serious Futurama forum and I found the last one I got great.

Nice.  The price is a bit more than I'm willing to pay for a mask, but if I had one I would definitely wear it.

I also like the All Might mask that they have for sale.

I think a lot of problems with thelre contraberoversial episodes were just down to the fact they were too short to do their ideas justice, and why they often felt unsatisfying on some level.  A perfect example is afta. Tbatb was another as I just couldn't bring myself to really care about Bender and Ben and their relationship: instead I just spent the episode wondering what excuse the writers would come up with to shuffle Ben off and the characters would never mention him again and the excise was even more cheap and contrived then I was expecting.  It also felt like several episodes smashed together: Bender and Bev having their angry sexual tension, Bender hooking up with Ruth and Esther and their Ill fated tryst, Fry's tacked on slurm subplot, and then finally Bender dealing with fatherhood with Ben and the robots can have robot babies idea.   Too much squeezed into twenty minutes. 

Futurama really needed to have longer episodes for stories like this because a twenty minute runtime is too limiting: or at the least have arcs that carry across episodes more.  Even though I absolutely love Ruth and Esther and really enjoyed how differently their segment was done in terms of much of their dialogue being left to interpretation and the use of dramatic lighting and camera angles which is not setting we have always seen on this show for example when Esther and Bendy Boo are making out, you can hear Ruth make a sad disappointed grunt and the camera shift to her perspective: we see the back of Benders head and Esther fluttering her eyelashes at him. Later the camera shifts to Fry's perspective and we see Bender glaring at him, Ruth staring at him in shock and Esther just looking him.  Then when Bender calls them skanks, Ruth looks at Bender because she obviously did not care for that remark while Esther continues to stare at him, possibly in interest.

Great stuff but the scene was treated as throoway filler in what was already a bloated episode.  It should have been a two pparter at least.
