Futurama: People: Amy Wong

Perennially pink jogging-suited Amy Wong is the intern for Planet Express. She began the series as an engineering student of the professor’s at Mars University. Still, I think her parents being the richest people on Mars had more to do with that than her intellect.

If you were to meet Amy in a bar, it wouldn’t take much to get her into the backseat of your car. All you’d need is a good line. But watch your upholstery, she’ll slip in an oil-slick in the parking lot.

Amy spends her most of her time getting involved in different adventures of the crew. She basically serves as some comic relief when Bender just won’t do. The rest of her time is spent bragging about her cuteness or slipping on something and hitting the floor. She did briefly come to the forefront when she and Fry shared her body, when she met Kif and when the crew visited her parents’ ranch.

She systematically made her way through most of the male population of several species until she and Kif Kroker finally got together for good when Amy saved him from amazonian love. But romance can be difficult in a long-distance relationship, especially when your boyfriend has tadpoles with one of your co-workers.

Kif has the ability to get pregnant (I know, he’s a DUDE, but he’s an amphibious dude) when he touches someone else’s skin ungloved. As they say, no glove – no love. In a late series episode, “Kif Gets Knocked Up A Notch”, Kif ends up losing a glove and touching several members of the Planet Express crew. He get knocked up a notch with Leela’s DNA and returns to his home planet to give birth to their tadpoles. Technically, the’re Leela, Kif and Amy’s children since Amy’s love made Kif receptive to procreation.

Her parents constantly try to play matchmaker for her and urge her to have grandchildren. They didn’t like Kif, even though they introduced him to Amy, but were thrilled when he reproduced. I guess any grandchild will do in a pinch. In the end, it all worked out, at least until the end of the series. Who knows what the creators, producers and writers had in store for them?

Lauren Tom puts her experienced spin on the voice of Amy Wong.

The Witcher Episode 7 Review - Before a Fall

In this Witcher Episode we noticed that “Before a Fall” was certainly less trivial in its portrayal without Jaskier. Indeed, the start of the war between Cintra and Nilfgaard and sending a group of mages face an army (with their own fanatically devout religious mages willing to die for their cause) with the realisation and sense of destiny playing on Geralt to find and protect Ciri adds a level of story depth with a different entertainment value that the excellent big character development scenes. In this episode, the narrative was definitely more focused on the story.

Episode Review: Picard meets Dahj after she is attacked by Romulan assassins and something 'activates' within her and she gets an image of Picard in her mind. She seeks him out to see if he can help explain what is happening to her. Picard travels to the Daystrom Institute in Okinawa and meets with Dr. Agnes Jurati, who reveals Dahj may be Data's daughter through an experimental procedure known as fractal neuronic cloning – meaning she is an android with an organic body but a positronic brain. She goes on to say that this activity results in twins.

The Witcher S01E06 Episode Review - Rare Species

This Witcher Episode Review is about as close to a typical Geralt of Rivia story as you can get - that is, a monster and a dilemma. It also lets us see one of the classic fantasy genre monsters of all time - dragons!  There was much less gratuitous in this episode which was a shame, but it was certainly good fun to watch.  The graphics were really good.  Ok, not as good as the amazing dragons in Game of Thrones, but definitely better than the Kikimora from the first episode. Though to be honest, I thought the Kikimora graphics were pretty good too.

The meeting between Geralt and Yennefer really delivers! Their get together bubbled with raw energy, sexual charisma, and fun that kept is all entertained. Cavill and Chalotra looked really good together and look physically and mentally well matched, That wasn't just good acting, it was good writing and direction too.
