Bettah Late, Then Nevah!

Featured to the right is a view of the Los Angeles/New York News daily publication Daily Variety from Reed Business Information. This was a Daily News item offered June 13th, 2002. Unfortunately, There is no articles about Futurama, but the cover at 15x10 is worth the $2.95 US. You may be able to grab a copy at an auction site or email them about a back issue. Yeah, It's the same pic as in the 2002 Calendar, but it still goes good with your collections.

Grants Toys prides themselves as being the first to stock the Rix Coasters Series I (back of Blister Pack pic). Thanks to AKA FrysGirl for the heads up. If you can't wait for your pre-orders at existing retailers, You'll be paying a couple dollars extra. Laterz.

Bender Talks to the Germans

Sorry for going German heavy again, but John DiMaggio (Bender's voice on Futurama) wants me to relay this to the German Futurama fans:

"Nice goal, meatbags, and thanks for watching the f%$#ing show!"

Although I'm no soccer fan really, yay from me, too

More on what John has been up to lately soon!

PS: Insiders and the MCO tell me it means "fucking" really

Reminder: German Futurama daily

To all the other Germans out there (after you got back from soccer related drinking): Don't forget that PRO7 will air Futurama on a daily basis starting next week. The episodes will be shown at 6:30pm before the Simpsons (too sad it's summer and no one will be watching, but read on). The thing is, Futurama will only make it back to a prime time monday slot if these reruns (starting with the pilot) and the Saturday 18:05 airing of season 3 episodes get a good enough rating.

In German: Ab n

Pharaoh Rating & Capsule

"A Pharaoh to Remember" got a (3.1/6) overnight rating and with that was 4th for the 7PM slot. King of the Hill was only slightly better in total numbers (more viewers later the evening) with a (3.5/6) rating.

Looking at 106 CGEF reviews & ratings this episode only scored 59 out of 100 points. Sad: the other episode by Ron Weiner (The Luck of the Fryrish) is one of my alltime favourites.

In any case, have a look at the Capsule for the Pharaoh and add goofs, weird scenes and references if you can.

Fan Art

Fan Art time! Erdrik submitted 5 new pictures. Of course, some are Leela heavy like most of his (ah well, not bad ) but this time we also have some PEEL related pictures. Have fun guessing who it is when looking at his gallery.

Also, Andrea Huckstep send 4 new pictures. With a total of 7 Mario related collages she now got her own page.

And ... Impossible bombarded my mailbox with lots of Futurama Fan Arts but I didn't get to do that yet. Sorry. Hopefully soon

    Low Futurama TV Ratings

    According to zap2it yesterday's double feature of Futurama only got a 1.9/4 rating and with that came in as 5th out of 5 ...
    The other networks showed: NBC - US Open (10.7/22), CBS - 60 Minutes (7.3/15), ABC - Toy Story (2.7/6), WB - The Big Hit (2.2/4)

    I guess the US Open and 60 Minutes take away a lot of the absolut numbers and the Disney movie might be more alluring than reruns, too. Now I know why they had two Futuramas there FOX probably didn't want to sacrifice King Of The Hill against NBC and CBS.
    Update: mediaweek presents a slightly different view: US Open 1st, 60 Minutes 2nd with (8.3/15), Toy Story 3rd with (3.6/7), Futurama 4th with still quite low (7 p.m. 2.8/5; 7:30 p.m. 3.1/6), Big Hit last with (2.1/4)

    Sunday's Futurama

    It's Sunday again and with that Futurama time! Weirdly enough, it's even two episodes today!

    Anthology of Interest II at 7PM
    Three stories unfold when Professor Farnsworth fine-tunes his "What If" machine: Bender discovers how different he would be if he were human, Fry learns what life would be like if it resembled a video game and Leela wonders what would happen if she found her true home....and crash lands on Planet Oz.
    This episode got a good 88% user review rating. Also read the capsule and contribute to it!

    Leela's Homeworld at 7:30PM
    Leela returns to the orphanarium in which she was raised being recognized for her success as a starship captain. Bender and Professor Farnsworth decipher something far more rewarding for Leela, as Fry helps her discover some long-lost secrets about her background, including what happened to her parents.
    It got a mediocre 79% user review rating. Same as above: read the capsule and contribute to it!

    Next week will be "A Pharaoh To Remember".

    7 New Futurama Fan Arts

    Futurama Fan Art time: 3 Marioesque by Andrea Huckstep (Anyone else remember her? If you miss her Futurama Outlet-posts, she is on PEEL now), 3 Leelaish by Impossible and the weird looking Beelze Bending Santa Bot you see on the left, all on our various submitters page.
    Thanks to the three!

    And this just in: A Futurama Fan Fic co-authored by Paul and Astrozombie called "Minds Apart" in which Fry messes about with one of Farnsworth's inventions and as a result he and Leela get to see life from a whole new perspective. Rate it!

    The Lost Webmaster Returns.

    It's been a little while since I updated any website, so I thought I'd give CGEF the first update, ahead of my site Futurama Scan Art Central.

    I've uploaded four new wallpapers for you Futurama fans to enjoy, they're called "One Banana Too Many" featuring Gunther from Mars Univerity, "I'll Never Help You Again" from My Three Suns, "Pharoah Bender" from A Pharoah To Remember and my personal favourite of Amy Sunbathing.

    FOX talks about fairness

    One of the many new FOX shows - 'Oliver Beene' - had its fall premiere be pushed back to January according to this article on zap2it. The reason given is that football would pre-empt it all the time. "It's not fair to the show" otherwise says a FOX spokesman.

    The irony: 'Beene' is scheduled for Sundays 7:30pm so right after Futurama which got pre-empted throughout the last two years that way. Guess it actually is fair as long as its Futurama and not some show FOX likes.
    No word spread yet if Futurama will also be pushed back to January.
    Thanks to 'Fancy Pants' at PEEL for getting my attention on it.

    Mmmmmm slurm

    CGEF and myself were lucky enough to get an advanced copy of the said Slurm Can from the below update so I wrote a very in-depth review with pictures of the tin can and scans of the playing cards. This by far is one of the coolest Futurama toys yet, so I highly encourage you to read this review, because I haven't spoken so highly on a product EVER as I have with this one. The can will be released by Rix Tin sometime in July, will have one playing card set inside, and will cost $6.99-$7.99US.

This looks to be a cool product line and I can't wait to get my grubby hands on it. Unfortunately, the Rix Tins Futurama line has been pushed back once again to the end of this month and even that is tentative. Please post in the comments if you have found a Pre-Order site or if you just wanna say how cool this product line is, that's ok too. I'm Out.

    Love & Rocket TV Rating

    Futurama TV ratings went slightly down from 3.2/6 last week to (2.9/6) and stayed at place 4 overall for the 7:00pm slot. 'King of the Hill' was higher in total viewers but only got 6% viewers, too (#4, 3.4/6). On the other channels CBS's '60 minutes' (#1, 8.3/15) dominated the time slot with NBC's 'Dateline' coming in as second (4.8/9) and 'A Knight in Camelot' on ABC as #3 with an average of (4.5/8) from 7pm to 9pm.

    Hope FOX advertises its one hour double feature ("Anthology of Interest 2" at 7pm and "Leela's Homeworld" after that) next Sunday some.

    Fan Stuff Time

    Got a pile of Futurama Fan stuff for you today:

    Erdrik sent me 4 Futurama Fan Arts: The one on the right is called "Quick Ride" and then we have some tickly action, Leela in the 5th Element dress and some random guy in the Futurama drawing style. Think he got some sort of electro-mace? Oh well, nice drawings!

    Juliet from One and only Bender gave us 3 Futurama Scans/Fan Arts: The Bundy-Leela you can see to the left, an alternative version of it and Fry & Bender side by side with highlighting and some effects.

    Next up: A new fan art submitter called Coole Cav. Have a look at his three fan arts.

    And finally, Stephen Reid submitted 3 more Futurama guitar tabs. He wants to know if anyone can come up with the song that starts playing in "Time keeps on slipping" when Fry invites Leela to his time shelter. Know it? Use the comments or mail me.

    Thanks again to all submitters!

    TV tighter for writers

    'TV tighter for writers' is the title of an article published today by the entertainment news source "Variety". It describes how the Hollywood TV and cinema corporations are aiming at giving out less development deals.

    "As a result, dozens of writers whose deals expired June 1 are hustling for gigs as showrunners or staff writers, or simply taking a gamble on one-shot script deals.

    Among those affected by the shift:

    = 20th Century Fox TV has not struck new development deals with Dawn Prestwich & Nicole Yorkin ("The Education of Max Bickford"); Alan Cohen & Alan Freedland ("King of the Hill"); David X. Cohen ("Futurama"); Molly Newman ("Snoops"); ... "

    Our good friend Sandy Grushow (see "Chapter 1: Operation Wise FOX") tells us:
    "Fox Television Entertainment Group chairman Sandy Grushow believes the scaling back of overall deals is 'the absolutely sanest thing the Hollywood production community can do.'"

    Well thanks for basically calling people insane who want to keep a developing show instead of single season hot shots.

    Season 2 DVD details

    First: No, I got no news about an US release of the Futurama Season 1 DVDs. Think years rather than months though.

    Now: Thanks to 'koolj' for pointing at r2-dvd.org on this PEEL thread.
    The article lists a number of episodes which will have "deleted scenes" on the DVDs. Additional material will be the sponsor clips like 'Arachno Spores' and audio commentary. The DVD set is not officially scheduled yet but more or less educated guesses tend to predict something near September/October.

    Bender in Star Wars?

    Sorry for forgetting who told us, but supposedly the Star Wars Tales TPB Vol. 2 (a collection of issues 5-8 of the comic) inlcudes the story "Junkheap Hero" in which C3PO is sitting atop a giant pile of robot parts where at the very right, a sort of Bender is to be seen. Anyone able to drop me a scan of that page per email? Doesn't really matter if you think it's Bender or not, I want to see anyway.

    Not that kind of fanny ...

    'SoulFX' sent me a coloured version of Lorenz K.'s Leela in a ... nice outfit Lorenz gave permission for that of course and so you can see the picture here now. For all the guys: Hands on table...

    Also, The Voices sent in a neat picture of the planet express ship in space which I made into 3 resolutions for wallpapers (scroll down to the bottom of the page. Cuss some if you don't have a mousewheel).

    And then, we got a newcomer in the Fan Fiction world. Payn sent in his very first fic called "Triassic 3: The Misplaced":

    The Planet Express crew makes a delivery to Triassic 3, the site of a new theme park filled with dinosaurs reconstructed from ancient DNA and modern scientific knowledge. Together with the owner of the theme park and two cute little children, they're given the opportunity to take a tour of the park before it's opened to the public. What could possibly go wrong?

    Futurama Episode Capsules

    A long time ago the site FrCr started doing Episode Capsules for each and every Futurama episode. These were mostly put together in the newsgroup alt.tv.futurama, but with the site the episode capsule business died down quite some also.
    We want to try to let people who aren't comfy with newsgroups still have a chance to contribute to these documents. For that reason, I set up a submission page for all the weird or notable things you see in the episode tonight ("Rosswell that ends well"). The page looks a bit chunky still as I was on a hurry to get everything done, but the raw text output it creates on the fly looks neat already. One thing that the capsules used to have but we won't have is a full transcript (legal reasons).

    I know it's not easy to contribute to this effort, but have a try If this works out somewhat we might go on with it.
    The original capsule for this episode was compiled by Jym Dyer, who maintains an archive of other capsules.

    One more day till the Season 4 reruns start on each Sunday at 7pm/6c. FOX isn't following the airing order of last season though (neither of production). This Sunday it's time again for "Roswell That Ends Well", followed by "Love & Rocket" and then "Leela's Homeworld".

    You can find reviews, pictures, sounds & best quotes and the trivia questions for Roswell on CGEF.
