Futurama (1999)

3 questions in season 3

The Honking - S3-E1

Question: What does the reflected binary code (the one that freaks Bender out) actually say?

Chosen answer: The initial number is 0101100101 = 357. When reflected in a mirror, however, it reads 1010011010 = 666 (the number of the Beast). It is a parody of The Shining, where the words Red Rum are seen as the word murder in the mirror.

Season 3 generally

Question: One of the Easter Egg entries says an egg is on every DVD and can be accessed by entering '35' when the alien writing appears on the screen. I have tried this, but it doesn't work. Can someone please go into a little more detail for me or explain why it might not work? The other easter eggs can be accessed fine.

Chosen answer: I did some research around the net and it seems this only works with region 2 DVDs.

Mortug

That's Lobstertainment! - S3-E8

Question: I have heard that Calculon winning the Golden Globe in this episode is a spoof of how a woman (Pia Zadora I believe) won the Golden Globe for Best Female Newcomer for a film that was terrible enough that she shouldn't have even dreamed of getting it, and it turned out she won it because her husband had bribed many people to get her to win. Is this true?

Chosen answer: While it has never been proved, it is believed that her husband, Israeli millionaire Meshulam Riklis, did have something to do with her winning a GG for her role in "Butterfly", especially since she also won Razzies for Worst New Star and Worst Actress for the same role.
