Futurama Premiere on Nov 10th
It should be fun to see how the Futurama staff managed to integrate both Al Gore and Kyoto into an episode when his political opponent tried to rip the protocoll apart. It's a bit of a shame though that we'll be in the 5th season and still didn't see all episodes produced for season 3.As Earth is unable to counter its rising temperature through the usual method (the dropping of a giant ice cube into the ocean), Gore leads an emergency conference in Kyoto, Japan, where Professor Farnsworth claims responsibility for the crisis. It seems love detoured him from observing proper emission standards on his prototype robot, and that could necessitate the destruction of all its "descendants." That includes Bender, who resigns himself to having a farewell blowout before being blown up.

Award For Futurama Producer Verrone
The award is targeted at the person of Patric himself and shows how much his work (and that's Futurama to a big extend in the last years) is valued by people in the business who do have a clue:"Patric's talents as a writer are matched by his passion for the craft and for the years he has poured his time and energy into advancing the status and rights of animation writers"
-- Victoria Riskin, pres. of WGA
Congrats from our side, too!"His work in daytime and primetime animation, in particular his writing for Futurama, have always been of the highest quality."
-- Craig Miller, AWC chair

Patric Verrone on prime-time animation
"You need to be willing and able to sit in a conference room for twelve hour days, five days a week, 50 weeks a year, rewriting scripts line by line. It also helps if you can direct actors, edit, design, compose music and lyrics, and brew beer. On FUTURAMA, everyone had to be able to do at least a majority of those things"Read the rest in Shannon's column at DigitalMediaFX.

A Different Future?
and"It's not over. We are trying to keep it alive with movies, cartoons, video games, toys and comic books"
I recently also got similar words by David X Cohen:"if it's not Futurama, we are going to work on another project. I have a couple of series in the works and TV shows I want to do."
"It [Cartoon Network syndication] increases the chances that we can at least keep doing video games, comics, etc... maybe even a movie someday"So, I was wondering what you think about the prospect of a possible episode-free season with toys, games and maybe a movie instead.
I know that both - understandably - are some sensitive about this issue. In my view any Futurama is better than no Futurama, but what's your comment?

Someone else ranting
What good is trying (in regards to SciFi during prime time) when there is no commitment to back it up later on?Then there's "Futurama," a show pre-empted so routinely that there's enough unshown episodes stockpiled for an entire season...most of which will likely be pre-empted if history is any judge.
