It's like hee haw with lasers.

Finally a new episode tomorrow again, so I did some catching up with updating the last data about the last episode. So I made 7 trivia questions for the 'Leelas Homeworld' episode. I will soon update the 'conceptual art' contest because I forgot to for the last weeks, I am sorry for that.

Future Video Game

Sachit and myself have made a new section devoted to the new Futurama Video Game coming out this Christmas. Sachit did about 80% of it, while I did about 20%... so email Sachit if you have any comments on it, OR better yet, use the comments feature on this update to voice your opinion. By the way, I highly suggest that you go the this new section, because it has TONS of new information regarding the game (plot, game type, consoles, release dates, ect. ect.)

Also, don't forget to read the exclusive interview I had with the games producer Anders Hejdenberg, from UDS. And if that wasn't enough, I added 3 new questions to the interview from a recent email I had with him. So click here and read the interview!


Coming later this week from Jon:

  • Report regarding the Paley TV Festival which will include a full report of the day, pictures, audio samples, and a transcript of the entire evening.
  • A full merchandise review of the Moore Action Collectibles Fry, Leela, Bender, and Planet Express ship action figures. And also the two ornament sets released by MAC last X-Mas.
  • Super Duper Extra Special contest!!!! With an extra super duper prize! A real prize

Up, down, up, rotate 62Degrees.

It's my pleasure to announce that we added our first 'Linux Theme' of futurama in our wallpapers area. So check it out if you have linux and want to try out spacemanspiff's awesome theme. Also check out this funny flash animation which uses futurama voices. It's very funny.

Futurama Today

Today "Problem with Popplers" is going to air at 9:30pm. By many this episode - written by is Patric M. Verrone - is regarded as the very best of season 2.

When the Planet Express crew lands on a previously undiscovered plant, they find that it is covered in a new and delicious animal life form which they call "popplers".

Last weeks thursday ratings were kinda ... weak. So watch it this time

Just a little This and That

Rix Tins has just released a view of the Waste Paper Basket of their product line. This will make a great place to store your AOL disks collection. They are still reporting that this line is due out in April.

With the Announcement that UDS Signed a Distribution Agreement for the Futurama game with British Games Publisher SCi, meaning that the whole world will have access to the game and anticipation building, You may be wondering what the webpage address will be. Licensed to the Swedish developer Unique Development Studios:

www.FuturamaTheGame.com

The link is broken as of now, but hold on to it.

Bender on Final Fantasy X?
Nope, but if you didn't know.. the voice of Bender, John Dimaggio voiced for both Kimahri and Wakka on Final Fantasy X for the Playstation 2. He gives them Hawaiian accents which are fitting to the characters personas and backrounds. Thanks Todd Sjolander for the tip.

I'll be releasing some media this weekend. Laterz.

Trivia? Schmivia..

I did the trivia of the 'Where buggalos roam' episode, I know it's not very hard, but it was very hard finding decent questions for this episode, cause it didn't have that many details.

A Pharaoh to Remember

Today "A Pharaoh to Remember" will premier at 7PM on FOX. The episode is written by a Weiner who also wrote "Luck of the Fryrish" for season 3. Expect the return of Scruffy and some egypt action.

PS: I just got the Futurama Season 1 DVDs and can only say ... wow. The audio commentaries are great and the box and image quality is way better than the Simpsons one.

PPS: 'Things From Another World' are selling the Bendy Bender at 40% off for $6 right now.

It's like monopoly, but real prices.

I just added a fan fiction of Officer 1BDI. It's called the Revival of PRoject A.L.B.I.A. I also wanted to point out that the Virtual Stock Exchange is now auctioning stuff, so you can really buy things with the money you earn there. So if you haven't signed up there yet, do it NOW.

It's Huge!

FOX TV ranking last Sunday:
7:00PM: rank #3 at 4.8/ 8 Futurama
7:30PM: rank #3 at 5.9/ 9 King of the Hill
8:00PM: rank #1 at 9.4/14 The Simpsons
8:30PM: rank #1 at 9.3/13 Malcolm in the Middle

The Futurama rating was about average for the show with the biggest problem being the early time slot (as always) and the strong competition from CBS's side with "60 Minutes" at a whooping 12.5/19.

Future programming:
We'll see 'The Honking' (Season 3 repeat) at 9:30PM on Thursday. Sunday it's finally time for "Godfellas" which is followed with yet another Thursday repeat ('The Birdbot of Ice-catraz'). After that, no Futurama on Sunday 24th.

Cancellation:
It's been one month since we announced the production stop of Futurama now. FOX seems to ignore us. No response to anything here. I will see that I get the more than 86,000 signatures of the petition mailed in soon.

Uh...Cross Town Express

In the Entertainment Weeklies March issue, The Futurama DVD makes the Most-Wanted list as one of the 10 Best DVDs You're Not Supposed to Be Able to Buy in the U.S. They Write "Futurama Fry fans may want to go on a Bender overseas, where the first season is available, loaded with deleted scenes and a Matt Groening commentary." Of course it's not like we don't have amazon.co.uk to buy it. Just wish they would make things easier (shipping prices suck.)

Holding onto some media before I release it because I'd like to make them better. Things in the works right now:

3D Cursor Theme
-Futurama Alien Alphabet 2 True Type Font
-Windows XP and Mac OS X ready icons.

See Ya.

Merchandise Update

Futurama: Horrible Gelatinous Blob Squishy Toy
The 'Horrible Gelatinous Blob Squishy Toy' is now shipping at TFAW for $9.99 and made it 'This week's #1 bestselling toy' right away. You can order it online at TFAW or from amazon (not shipping yet, but should soon).


Also, I found that an online store called 'T-Shirt King' is selling 2 Futurama T-Shirts:
  • a black 'Bend with Care' one (my favourite)
  • a charcoal 'Don't let the human race destroy outer space' one for the PC guys and gals.
    Both are $17.99 plus shipping and available in 3 sizes.
    Last time I announced a T-Shirt over at eMerchandise they were gone again in 4 days.

    Today: The Honking

    Hinting at our news from one month ago, Robert Bianco says in his column at USA today:
    "Speaking of foresight, the end is apparently near for Futurama (Fox, 9:30 p.m. ET/PT). You can start saying your goodbyes with this clever horror-spoof repeat, as Bender becomes a were-car." (Thanks to Richard for passing the link)

    I agree with him, watch the episode and give it a review and rating afterwards.

    Also, Andie updated the Lists & References after last Sunday's episode.

    Mail Man

    I got word from two people who got letters back from FOX. Their own. Unopened.
    The envelopes said "Addressee No Longer Here". The fun part is, it wasn't USPS but FOX's own internal mailing service who couldn't locate their own president and chairman?!? Must be some really complex corporation flow chart they got there if they rather sent a letter back to denmark instead of forwarding it to the right room in case it was really misaddressed.
    More likely: For the X-Files they do not accept written letters from unknown sources. Maybe we got the same nice fan treatment.

    PS: Just in case the internal FOX service is reading this, you can find a picture of your boss here. Maybe next time you can even figure out where she works, too.

    Today on air: Godfellas

    Today's Futurama episode at 7PM - "Godfellas" - is one of the highly anticipated ones by myself. It was written by Ken Keeler (writer for AoI1, Time Keeps on Slipping, co exec producer on Space Pilot 3000) and is doomed to have some great lines on religion. The story is about Bender being propelled into space by accident while fighting a battle with space pirates. Drifting through the void of space without hope to return to earth he happens to become god (The one commandment: "God needs booze"). As we all learned from Populous, playing god is not that easy though...

    Enjoy it, go to the reviews and maybe join the chatroom later!

    MC pluribus unum. WORD!

    Hope you liked the Godfellas episode as much as I did, 'cause there won't be a new or repeat episode for some time after all. Neither this Thursday (Celebrety Boxing is pushing the schedule back), nor Sunday (FOX decided to show ID4 all evening), nor the Thursday after (FOX specials: Post mortem, Corruption of American youth).

    After that (eg, in two weeks), it's time for "Futurestock".

    Good Ol' Germany

    Maybe not that good after all ...
    The German TV channel PRO7 decided to stop airing Futurama till at least June. Well, let's face it PRO7. The translation/dubbing by Taurus was utter crap and the fact that Season 3 just started airing more than a year after the US premier did not really help either.

    And on The Island: Sky starts airing Season four every Sunday at 19:00. Thanks to Luke for pointing that out to me.

    Presented in EdelVision

    The sounds for 'Godfellas' are up now. Have fun with the great quotes!

    Bender: "I was God once."
    God: "Yes, I saw. You were doing well until everyone died."

    There is no Futurama tonight
    Next Sunday there will be "Futurestock" - Some biz guy is unfrozen and takes over Planet Express Delivery and the Sunday after it's "A Leela of her own" - Leela becomes a professional Blernsball player.

    In the UK though, Sky One will air the Season 4 starter 'Roswell that Ends Well' at 19:00.

    Bored? Well, I found someone else who was
    Have a look at these cute Futurama Fisher Price Figures.

    Looking at the air dates of the Futurama episodes, you might notice that Futurama just today turned 3.

    Also, We are slowly reaching in on 100,000 signatures on our petition! Sign it if you haven't yet! And while at it, also sign this one which seeks to make MTV sell their old cartoon series like "The Maxx" - which was also partly done by our beloved Rough Draft Studios - on DVD ... cause I say so ...
