As much as I despise Al Gore, I must admit he has a good sense of humor.

I try to stay out of politics, so I love Al Gore...Only because he likes Futurama. He's good in my book for that.

I agree, Al Gore supports Futurama, (probably because his daughter Kristin is on the writing staff) so he is alright with me.

I would also like to through in that his character on the show is hilarious

"I have riden the mighty moon worm"

"My book Earth In the Balance, and the more popular, Harry Potter and the balance of earth."

"Dang, that 100 dollars could have boughten me... 1 GALLON OF GAS!"

and my all-time favorite

"Finally, I get to save earth with deadly lasers instead of deadly slideshows."

I thought it was amazing ten outta ten in my book. I watched it about a week ago with a group of friends and last night with my girlfriend.

I laughed, i cried, I exclaimed.

Futurama is still great

I watched the movie a week and a half ago, and i must say, it was everything i could have ever wanted in a futurama comeback.


But instead of trying to guess things before they happened, i just sat back and let it all unfold.. (major spoiler below)


the commentary track was brilliant also, as usual, and i feel as close to the movie as i do to the series.
Al gore was brilliant, and it was so great how they added all the little things for us who've watched and watched, and watched, and re-watched all the episodes over and over and over...


10/10 - the icing on the cake is the half an hour episode of "Everybody Loves Hypnotoad", as per our demands! so says Cohen...

Return of a 2000er.  Always nice to see PEEL still going strong.  Well I cannot believe I'm watching all-new Futurama for the first time in 2 odd years.

It was GREAT!  Really had me "lol"ing for the first segment.  Things did get a little frantic with so many storylines in the final parts but still classic Futurama.  I'm really thankful it returned to DVD, hope it sells well and we get more asap.

I am in more awe that my favorite futurama character made a reprise, Robot Santa!  Just in time for the holidays, I cannot get enough of his murder and mayhem.

I also enjoyed "Everyone Loves Hypnotoad," I cannot believe that...

Here's another lets read into Futurama too much theory. There could even a future outline in the Beast With A Billion Backs concerning all the benders where in Love Labours Lost In Space Bender Zapp talks about the killbots' attack. Killbots = Multiple Benders maybe

"Eh but we can always build more killbots"

Highly unlikely but would be interesting never the less.

When they all became homeless, how come Zoidberg didn't teach them how to survive being homeless?  Considering Zoidberg is poor.

I'm a little late to the party, but...

I had to order BBS twice, and spend over a month dodging spoilers and reviews. But it was worth it; very much so.

I enjoyed myself from the opening shot to the final credits. The story was good, even if it did suffer a tiny bit from the fact that it's going to be cut into 4 epsiodes. (But only a very tiny bit.) The subplots were good, and the main plot was great.

My one nitpick was with the music; they used an awful lot of the music from the console game in it, and not just the main theme remix, either. A lot of incidental music was used as well; it wasn't something that turned me off BBS (it'd have to have been really bad to do that), but it left me with the impression that they'd spent most of the money elsewhere (with spectacular results). It just made things feel a little...cheap. But again, put against the storylines, the wealth of good jokes and animation, it's a small thing. Futurama is back, all right; they keep the quality this consistent for the other three movies, and I have a good feeling about new series.

As for Fry/Leela... My opinion is that shippers don't really have anything to worry about. In fact, I'd see the events of BBS as a step forward.


'Hynotoad'; interesting idea, but...ugh. Nearly turned my brain into mush.   wink

So all in all, definitely worth the wait.   smile

Having read some of this thread:

I don't think that BBS ruins any episode. It does change JB, this is true, but other folks here have said that the 'timeline' may change, but the episode remains. After all, it is fiction.    smile

As for 'Fryrish', all that's changed is that Fry mysteriously vanishes 12 years later than the original timeline. Think about it; the family surely knew that Fry lived in that storage room. Then, in 2012, some kind of scifi creature blows up said room - and Fry's body is never found. Same result, in my book; Fry likely didn't tell them that a version of him is still in the cryotube, so him disappearing doesn't change.

Nibbler talking: apart from the comic effect, I'd say that with all they go through, they might not remember that he can talk, unless he spends the intervening times (i.e., the time the crew spends as bums) communicating regularly. After all, the smartest of them tends to forget his own name on a regular basis...    smile  And besides, when things calm down, it wouldn't be that hard to tie up loose ends, so to speak.

Additional: I do admit that the anti-Fox thing maybe went a little long; it seemed less a nibble at the hand that feeds as a full-on bite. But since Family Guy takes shots at Fox, Bush, and various other targets that could fight back with real lawyers, I guess Fox has a tough enough sense of humour. Well, not the 'news' department...   smile

Anyway, those are my two cents.

I just remembered watching stuff from this years Comic Con and they did a comic table read, there was a bit with that mystic robot I forgot the name of (See The Honking and Godfellas) and she tells short summaries of what happens in these films/episodes. It was just after the second time I saw it (Pretty recently) that I realised it. If anyone has a copy or if anyone knows where to see this on-line, I wanna check out the frame where she talks about Leela and what may happen.

If you have a copy of BBS, there's the Comic Con reading of the comic strip in the Features.

Nibbler is quite clearly having a discussion with Leela here.

Huh. Never noticed that. Nice eye Xanfor.

I finaly got around to watching the commentary yesterday. I think it was pretty good but I've never seen the Soprano's so I probably missed half the jokes.

Hey, does anyone else think that when Bender has the iObey virus, he turns into Flexo? He's much more helpful, plus he even does his "[opinion]. I'm just kidding, [opinion]" catchphrase.

I thought it was good, maybe not as great as it could be though. i don't know, it was an odd concept and provided little closure- only more, seemingly unnecessary, definite plot lines. we'll see after time and the rest of the movies. at any rate, it was great to have new material and all the old "friends" back.

of course, i also have yet to watch it again, the extras, commentary, etc.

You know, I thought the movie started off really well, but about 2/3 into it, it just felt like it started dragging a little.  But, other than that I freaking loved it was so happy to see some new Futurama stuff.  I am so happy it is back...

Loved the film, and even had a tear in my eye as the Fry/Leela/Lars triangle was resolved. Also loved seeing the callbacks to "Luck Of The Fryrish" and "Jurassic Bark" (and the timeline still works for both, everything was just pushed back 12 years). Loved seeing the Futurama universe in 1:85.1 widescreen and 5.1 sound (even if the lack of an orchestra for Christopher Tyng's score was disappointing), really loved the visit to the nudist planet, and greatly enjoyed all the little cameos (although no WORNSTRUM?!  frown). All-in-all a wonderful return.

I got it some days ago..

It was good.. but a little too confusing for my taste..
the time travell is brilliantly writen , makes you wonder how many loops they did over the script to polish details about time travel..

But im a bit dissapointed..

-The naked aliens are utterly unbearable... i know they are made that way in porpouse but they have a little too much time, the initial spam part was fun at first but it became too long and in the end it bacame boring and so predictible..like beating a dead corpse..

-the time travell.. while brilliantly writed ..it , unless is changed somehow in the next movies , now "Luck of the Fryrish" and "Jurassic Bark" are totally ruined... now you see them and now that neither did Yancy missed Fry because he never left neither did Seymore waited for Fry for same reason

-the Lars thing was predictible.. specially after noticing Billy`s voice on him.. and somehow didnt feel any new sinze we had allready a "Leela sees herself With Fry" situation in Parabox .. also Leela-Fry romance is becaming quite booring because one allready knows what espect... nothing

-The niblonians Ruined!!... its too much a joke that they are defeated by chairs..
and now nibbler has uncovered himself... i was specting right to the end him flashing everyone memory or time "fixing" itself so everything we see in the movie didnt happen and therefor nobod renembers nibbles speaks.. but no, in the end he is still uncovered..

- It was nice to see almost all the secondary characters and the space battle was cool alltought a bit silly..
the fleet of gold death stars was very funny.. almost bassed on a joke of the Rogue Squadron "i would rather attack a fleet of death stars in orbit arround a planet like a necklace"

Nice to see continuity here and at last a cliffhanger in futurama..

maybe as i think in some of the next movies time will somehow or by someones action "fix" itself and everything will not happen ..because i dont care about the time trivell with no-paradox system.. now two great eps are ruined (alltought the joke of Benderīs run being to blame the destruction of NNY was priceless..

And .. arent we running in another paradox in the end with all Benders charged with treasures being there instead the treasures being stolen by the unbearable aliens or being delivered to them by those Benders?


Still wanting to see how they develop the thing..in the next movies, the next being 2 months away..

hope to:

-the time travel to cancel itself or it being a bit more clear..
-Better jokes please.
-Nixon must suffer

Damned!  [Ralph dancing the uncordinated white-man dance.]

Javier just said everything I've stated of why I utterly despised the crapfest known as Bender's Big Score.

Granted Javier probably enjoyed the movie and just had those nitpicks about it, I absolutely refuse to watch the wretched thing again.

At least the wife-unit loves it.  She'll watch BBS at least once a week.  Usually when I'm in the garage working on my Vette or when I'm watching Married With Children (which she hates with a flaming passion).

I watched the movie a couple months ago. I was pretty disappointed with it. It felt a lot more like a long, animated version of the comic books than like the previous episodes. I liked it better the second time I watched it, but I haven't bothered to watch it again. I thought the ending was good, because I wasn't expecting the twist. I liked the beginning too, right up until the naked aliens showed up at Planet Express. I usually like the music and singing, but I didn't like it in the movie. Nothing else really stood out...

Prelimenary comments, from first viewing:

1.Much better than I expected, given some of the comments i've picked up on peel.

2. Whilst a few think Leela was a bitch, I have to say she was fine compared with that slut of a wife hermes is married too!

3. Whilst I never suspected consciously that Lars was Fry, I actually had a good feeling about him from the start.

4. It was really really funny at some bits!

5. Iam going to watch it a good few times to unravel the particulars of the time travel plot, my 4 dimensional logic matrix ain't what it used to be! I would also suggest too that any anomalies created in the pre BBS plot could still be corrected by further time travel plots in future films, though I may have to borrow someone elses brain if the writers go down that road!

Incidentally I had to buy a new DVD player to watch this, at least now I can buy future releases on region 1 without having to worry about compatibility.

I hear you there, man. LaBarbara was an uber-slut in this movie. As soon as Hermes lost his ability to do... whatever he did with his flabby body, LaBarbara ditched him under the false pretense of "needing a father for the boy". I don't know why I'm explaining this, because I'm sure you all know this already, but oh well. She was not nice in this movie.

Leela was turned indeed in a bith midway in the series....alltought no near LaBarbara now..  as i readed somewhere she sells herself too high for someone soposed to be a freak..

One thing that no one appears to have adressed is Benders words that he should never say but he does here..

In the start he says "Cerveza por favor" (Beer please)..... PLEASE?? Sinze when does Bender ask please  big grin that was trully out of character

The universe is destroyed at the end of BBS.  I think some that have issues with the movie damaging the Futurama timeline are taking things too seriously.  I took that the movie was just a "side" trip and not really part of the traditional Futurama canon.
