  1. That Time Finn & Jake Were On Futurama [VIDEO]

    We were hoping for more when we first heard about this but short and sweet is good, too. (via Kotaku) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  2. Futurama And Adventure Time Are About To Get A Canonical Crossover. Mathematical!

    Oh Mah Glob Guys

    You read that right: Futurama is about to get some Jake-the-Dog and Finn-the-Human in an upcoming episode of the final season of the show. This is not a drill, I repeat, this is not a drill, nor is this wishful fan art! Voice actor John DiMaggio (who plays both Bender and Jake) certainly has his work cut out for him. Did they have him switch back and forth? Did he ever get the two voices confused? I kind of hope they made him do it all at once. Previously in Futurama

  3. Probably Not Drift Compatible: Seven Fantastic Examples of Technobabble

    A selection of defining uses of technobabble in sci-fi and beyond

    Technobabble -- the scientific-sounding gibberish that scientist characters spew in every episode of Star Trek -- is the dilithium crystal in the warp engine that makes science fiction run. It can get to ridiculous levels. Ron Moore steered clear of it in Battlestar Galactica because his Trek scripts filled up with [INSERT TECH HERE], but ultimately it's hard to get by without it. Technobabble generally does make sense on a superficial level, since there's so much speculative science out there that there's bound to be a field related to whatever the story requires. For better or for worse, take a look at the greatest ways technobabble has been put to use.

  4. Good News, Everyone: Watsky Wrote a Spec Script for Futurama That You Can Read Right Now

    Too bad it will never get produced! Oh... I made myself sad.

    Putting together spec scripts for already-existing television shows is a great way for young and budding television writers to practice their skills -- kind of like fanfic that you can use to get a real job. Too bad rapper and slam poetry sensation George Watsky doesn't have a whole lot of time to get his Futurama spec script in the hands of producers, what with the show set to end at the beginning of September. In order to not deprive the world of his self-proclaimed magnum opus, he put the whole thing up on his website for us all to read instead. What a great headache with pictures he had!

  6. Speaking of ’60s Batman and Futurama, Here’s ’60s Batman in Futurama

    What, you aren't always talking about Batman and Futurama on a constant loop?

    Futurama is ending soon -- again. But before that, it looks like Matt Groening and crew are looking to get the most out of their final season, and that includes getting Batman stars Adam West and Burt Ward to do a special guest appearance on the show. They recently released images of the character models on the Comedy Central website, and they look sufficiently Batman-y to make me very happy about the state of the world. Admit it, you really have been hoping those two would get back together for another Return to the Batcave. I refuse to hear otherwise.

  7. Neil Gaiman Discusses His Contribution To Doctor Who’s TARDIS & Its Dislike Of Clara

    It Goes Ding When There's Stuff

    BBC America invited The Mary Sue on a very special press conference call with Neil Gaiman in advance of his Doctor Who episode this weekend. "Nightmare in Silver" is the prolific author's return to the show as well as the return of the Cybermen. While we were thrilled to hear him speak about his new ideas and the experience writing the episode (it's a fun one!), we were very curious to know what his thoughts were on Clara's seemingly troubled relationship with the TARDIS.

  8. Daenerys Loves Dr. Zoidberg? Emilia Clarke Set To Voice Futurama Character During Final Season.

    It is known

    Just because Futurama was cancelled again (sad trombone) doesn't mean the creators are done having fun. The upcoming season will feature everyone's favorite Mother of Dragons, Emilia Clarke, in a very special guest-starring role.

  10. Days of Futurama Past: Comedy Central Ends The Show’s Run Sep. 4

    Futurama has been cancelled before, but it looks like this time it might really, truly be over. Comedy Central has decided not to order any more episodes of the show, and will just it march slowly to its death on September 4th as it closes out its seventh season. The news will no doubt upset fans, but the show's executive producer David X. Cohen isn't surprised.

  11. The Whole Story of Social Media Last Night in One Futurama Clip

    A great many things were said on Twitter last night as the Boston-area manhunt wore on into the early morning. Lots of them were interesting. Many of them were true, and lots of folks on social media did kind of an amazing job covering it live in real time. Many of them, though, have ended up being more interesting than they were true in the cold light of day. I'd like to think there's a lesson in there about withholding things like names of suspects -- especially the names of oh, say, missing people whose families are worried about them -- until you're sure they're actually the names of suspects. I wonder if it will be.

  12. Oh My Glob, Someone Drew Futurama Characters as Adventure Time Characters

  13. Seven Years of Fandom Easter Eggs That Look Good Enough to Eat

    Fans Do Cool Things

    Lesley A. Jensen makes a new set of Easter Eggs every year, based on the characters of a different geeky show, movie, or video game. This set for Batman: The Animated Series is my favorite, but I'm heavily biased, so you should probably come on in here here and see the others to form your own opinion.

  14. Here’s a Three Minute Reminder that Futurama Did Not Get Cancelled Again and Will Return this Summer

    It Came From Outer Space

    I'm just saying, whenever Futurama isn't on and I see a preview for it, my first thought is usually "Oh, yeah, Futurama isn't cancelled right now." Anyway, this three minute preview consists of at least 40% people screaming, and also contains Seymour, Fry's dog. (via Vulture.)

  16. The Cosmic ABCs, Featuring Stars, Wars, Treks, and More…

    It Came From Outer Space

    Designer and printer Brad and Sara McNally rallied a number of artists to put together a series of twenty-six images that they call Cosmic Sans, or a bold image representing something in those spacey parts of science fiction and science fact for each letter of the alphabet. Here are eight of our favorites, presented, of course, in alphabetical order!

  17. 5 Stars, Would Elect In Real Life: Our Favorite Fictional Presidents

    It's just about over, folks. You're one day away from not having to see another political ad for nearly 24 months. Now that you've made your voice heard -- you did vote, didn't you? -- for the candidates of your choice, take a moment to sit back and reminisce about some of the Presidents that the world of geekdom has given us. After all, participating in a democracy is tiring work, and you've earned a break today of all days. If you're not done telling people how you think things should be done, though, by all means, let us know what Commanders-in-Chief you think should or shouldn't be on this list, either in the comments or on our Facebook page. It may not be your civic duty or anything, but we always want to hear what you think.

  18. Hunker Down: The Best Apocalypse Shelters In All Of Geekdom

    As windows are boarded up and down the eastern seaboard, we're taking shelter, too. A triple batch of mac and cheese is on the stove, the bathtub is full of water, and we're playing with the idea of one more run to the store for ALL OF THE CANNED TUNA!!! As we prepare for the fall of Western civilization as we know it, please join us in recalling some of our favorite shelters for waiting out the end of days.

  19. Brainwave Measurements May Predict Talent at Video Games, Recruiting Of LoL Super-Team Likely Already in Progress

    A study by psychologists at the University of Illinois suggests that measuring brainwave oscillation could predict how quickly someone will get good at a video game. The study, published today in the journal Psychophysiology, is simultaneously heartening to people like myself who are bad at video games. On the one hand, there's nothing we can do about it, and it doesn't mean we appreciate the medium any less. We're just not wired that way, which is a very freeing thing. On the other hand, we're bad at a fun thing because our brains our broken, which is a hard statement to paint in a flattering light.

  20. Futurama Voice Actors… Voice Acting [Video]

    Consider the Following

    There isn't much that's cooler than watching voice actors strut their stuff on camera. Putting real faces to the cartoony ones is always something of a revelation. I'm curious as to what characters Tress MacNeille is doing in this clip. The script says Bender's Game, but one of those yells sounds an awful lot like Empress Ndnd. (via The FW.)
