The last time we saw Fry, Leela, Bender and the rest of the gang of Planet Express was on a very well done crossover with the “Simpsons” a while back. And I would love to see another one of those again, but alas, it was probably just a one-off.
Princess Leia Organa is coming to “Star Wars Rebels” later this month. This is a younger version than the one we first encountered in “Star Wars: A New Hope.” Well, she had to learn that feisty attitude somewhere. So now we get a sneak peak into the making of a rebel Princess.
Someone back in the late seventies thought it was a good idea to mix “Star Wars” with a variety show format. And it aired only one time on CBS on Friday, November 17, 1978 to horrible reviews. Even worse, it preempted “Wonder Woman” and the “Incredible Hulk.” Noooooooooo! (That’s what Vader said.)
Four years after the end of the Original Star Trek Series (1966-69), Paramount commissioned “Star Trek: The Animated Series (1973-74) to run Saturday mornings on NBC, with the first episode debuting September 8, 1973.
So what would it actually be like if Doc and Marty came to this 2015 instead of the movie (Back to the Future Part II) 2015? Well, I’m guessing they would be greatly disappointed. It’s just not as much fun as their future. I mean, technology did advance, but just not to those levels. And the world is not exactly in great shape right now. If only our biggest problem was Biff.
“Star Wars Rebels” aired its second season premiere this past summer. In that episode we saw the return of Darth Vader (voiced once again by James Earl Jones). But that was the only episode that aired for the second season. The rest of the season continues next week on Wednesday, October 14, on Disney XD.
Per the Official Website: “Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the beloved “Peanuts” gang make their big-screen debut, like they’ve never been seen before, in state of the art 3D animation. Charlie Brown, the world’s most beloved underdog, embarks upon an epic and heroic quest, while his best pal, the lovable beagle Snoopy, takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis, the Red Baron. From the imagination of Charles M. Schulz and the creators of the ICE AGE films, THE PEANUTS MOVIE will prove that every underdog has his day.”
Today came the second season trailer for “Star Wars Rebels.” I wasn’t sure if I was going to watch the first season, even though I really enjoyed its predecessor “The Clone Wars” (which happened to be light years better than the live-action prequels). But I decided to give it a fair shake. And I loved it right out of the gate. The stories are extremely well done and they came up with some really compelling characters.
“Simpsorama” was the title of the long awaited “Simpsons/Futurama” crossover. It aired last Sunday, November 9, 2014 (Season 26, Episode 6). In this episode, the Planet Express crew comes back in time to stop the Simpsons from inadvertently destroying the future.
On this week’s current episode entitled “Grounded Vindaloop,” Stan, Kyle, Cartman, Kenny, and Butters are stuck in a virtual reality world, or so they think. Actually, they’re not sure. And we the viewer aren’t sure. Up until the very end when (SPOILERS) we come to find that it is only Stan that is stuck in the virtual world. And when he finally takes off his Oculus Rift goggles and reenters the real world, we get this.
