I guess it wouldn't be so bad if he were a nice guy. Lizard tongues are pretty cool!

*psst* That was the joke! It's a comedy cartoon, you have to give their personalities some lee-way because they get construed to fit gags sometimes.

Yeah, but that's the joke    :p

Whoooooo!

Sure, this wasn't a truly shippy episode. You can dismiss pics like that as coincidences, but on the other hand does anyone really think Leela would clutch her breast and gaze mournfully up at any other character in that way besides Fry? 

Going back to the one on page 5 of this thread when Fry grabs Leela's hand to stop her in front of the animatronic band in the deleted scene, sure it was a casual action and you can't read too much into it, but would Fry have grabbed the professor's hand or Zoidberg's claw or even Amy's hand when they weren't dating? No, he would grab them by the elbow or tap them on the shoulder (carapace, whatever). Touching someone's hand without them offering it to you is a rather intimate act in western society reserved for lovers or parents and children.

Leela and Fry can be very comfortable in each other's presence and I think these vignettes are deliberate efforts to offer some subtle clues to their (dare I say?) destiny.

Or maybe the animators just got bored and started slipping in shippy scenes?

@ Hypnojoe - I agree and also, Fry and Leela stayed hand in hand for the rest of the scene. if it was anyone else Fry would just pull them back by thje arm and once they were back let go.

@ Deca -  :love: :love: Do not Put down anything remotley shippy  :p :love: :love:

Naa, I'v decided to work on another one. I'm calling it 'The Monica-Bing Effect'. Guess what's gonna make it shippy?...  :)

Leela's too fussy when it comes to men. What about that guy with the frog tongue? What's his name - Doug. She liked him before she saw the tongue, but afterwards she went right off him. She doesn't like people discriminating her because of her eye, so she shouldn't be such a hypocrit and do exactly that to others!!! Ding! My ranting tme is up.

Humans have quite a knack. This actually proves to us that Leela is indeed human, with all the weaknesses and vunerabilities that we have. But then again, she learned her lesson about judging by appearances, now didn't she?

Shippy-Dye Vest song

Alright, I just made the cheesiest piece of shipper-media ever.
Seeing as I had the day off today (inservice day), I decided to take the song "Space-Dye Vest" by Dream Theater and put a bunch of shippy Futurama quotes on top of it.
Just go to my purevolume with the link at the top and listen to the first song that I titled "Shippy-Dye Vest".
Parts of it sound kinda nice, other parts are totally cheesy.     :D

BTW, the vocals in the original song are really quiet and different because I used a vocal remover thing on the song before I started putting the quotes in. I later realized I should've just run the vocal remover over the parts I put quotes over, but once I put the quotes in, it was too late...oh well.
Anyway, I highly recommend you hear the original Space-Dye Vest...which means buying Dream Theater's Awake album if you have to.

Ok, ok, so here's a story for yawl. I was writing the next chapter in my Anthology, right? And it involves the Countess returning, right? So I thinks, 'Hey, maybe I ought to watch 'Titanic' for reference, wot?' So I do so.

You thought I cried after watching 'Leela's Homeworld'.

It's gonna be awhile before I can write anything uplifting again.

It's romantic and all but I find most of the acting was terrible. I'd much rather watch Gone With The Wind.

Frankly my dude, I don't give a damn for either of them. Gone With The Wind was OK but Titanic just made me sick. I was cheering for the iceberg.

On the other hand I love A Flight To Remember despite the homage it pays to Titanic. I guess that's one of the things I find so special about Futurama; normally I'm rather un-romantic in my outlook, but Fry and Leela really drew me in. Dear Lord let me live through 2008.

Think of Titanic from this perspective.
A majestic iceberg, on it's maiden voyage, filled with seals & penguins with their hearts filled with hope sails across the seas. But suddenly out of the fog looms several tons of mysteriously(sp?) floating iron! The floating iron thing hits the S.S iceberg and the iceberg goes down with all of it's crew & passengers.

Good luck trying to sink an iceberg.



I liked Titanic. Sure it was cheesy in some areas and the general love story was cliched, but it's still one of my favorites movies :love:  :cry:

So of course I absolutely LOVED the futurama titanic episode.  Especially the Fry/Leela story of course!  :love:

Deca, you just reminded me of The Convergence of the Twain:p

My take on the movie:
I was probably one of the... what, 5% of the younger population?... that went to see Titanic originally because I was excited to see the actual ship, not the love stuff.  (I was eleven -- no, twelve -- at the time.)  Since the time I was seven, I'd had an interest in its story and had been reading books and such.  Of course, since I was twelve, right away I then picked up on the love story and all of that....  Uh... yeah.  Kind of embarrassing.

But I still remember sitting in the theater and going "Cool!" when they showed the animation in the beginning.  Stuff like that in documentaries still thrills me in a small way.  And man, did I love the footage of the ship breaking in half, and basically everything about it sinking.  I have a thing for disasters, apparently.


But anyway.  Back to AFTR.  It, of course, turned out to be one of my favorite episodes.   :D  In fact, it was the last episode I taped the night before my DVDs came in the mail [last year] and I think the first ep I played from said DVDs.

Actual ship there. One of the the best lookin' ever built, in my opinion. Except perhaps the original.

As for the movie, I particularly loved the soundtrack.

As for AFTR, I have a whole new appreciation for Bender.

The special effects were spectacular but that's the only thing that was enjoyable in that film. I'd rather watch a 4 hour long Futurama parody of Titanic than the actual film.

Titanic was a huge blockbuster made to make massive money, and it did.
The love stuff was terrible, in my opinion. Cheesy acting and writing.
And DAMN is that movie long.

By the way, have any of you seen the original movie about the titanic (without any cheesy love story) called A Night To Remember (which the titles of A Flight To Remember and A Pharaoh To Remember are obviously taken from)? It's old, but it's good.

« #355 : 03-23-2007 13:24 »

I'm a bit of a moive Nazi so I dislike many new movies. A Night To Remember was overshadowed by the sucess of Titanic and it's superior. I'm not really into boat disaster movies.

This is becoming movie talk so we should be getting back to the shippiness.

I have!  The story was good, but I had trouble getting past the special effects...  The modern Titanic's effects were stunning.  It was so beautiful AND the story made you feel the sadness of the whole history in a more powerful way.  But a Night to Remember was good.

And now back to the shippiness -

aww, that's soo shweet  :love:

In that picture Fry looks like he's looking past Leela.
