Did anyone else like Bwab, but thought it was a little weird?

That's how I feel about it.

If you went up to a non-Futurama fan and explained the plot of The Beast with a Billion Backs to them, they'd likely laugh in your face because of how absurd it sounds on paper.

"A giant tenticle monster falls in love with with everyone in the universe and secretly has sex with them, but later decides to let them live on his shkler body while robots try and pull shkler away from shkler universe using a diamondonium rope attached to a space-pirate ship."

The movie has a ridiculous premise which I only recent got over.

The ridiculous premise is one of the reasons that I like it.

It's incredibly original and incredibly outside the box. That's worthy of praise in my eyes. I wish the show would be that crazy more often.

Billion Backs is easily the most divisive of the four movies; some people love it and some people can't stand it. I personally didn't care for it the first time I saw it (probably because I expected the emotional arc from BBS to carry over, and the shippy part of me was annoyed to find this was not the case)--but, on subsequent viewings, it's really grown on me.

Like cyber_turnip says, it's a totally wacky premise...but, in a way, that's refreshing. I'm not fond of Fry's characterization, but humor-wise I think the movie's spot-on. Everything with the League of Robots is hilarious, and Amy, Leela, and Zapp's escape from the tentacle is one of my favorite things the show's ever done (I just really dig the dynamic between those three characters).

So, yeah. Billion Backs is still only my third-favorite movie, but it's miles ahead of "Bender's Game" (which is just horrid) and not too far behind BBS.

I don't mind the absurd premise either, what I'm saying is that unless you're big fan of Futurama, it would be difficult to enjoy.

I found myself enjoying it when I re-watched it the other night. If you just don't think of how entirely ridiculously wacky the plot is, it makes it an enjoyable watch. So much is going for it humor-wise that I found myself giggling at despite watching it before. Granted I've probably not seen it since it came out to DVD but still... It means a lot if anything I found funny once can tickle me again as I'm the type who nearly dies the first round and may giggle another round but rarely do I keep laughing past that at anything. Of course I sometimes laugh at the most immature/random/absurd things. I do not fully understand my own sense of humor. I agree with Gorky and cyber_turnip that it was refreshing to have a new spin on the series.

I liked 'Beast With A Billion Backs' as well.

But if I were a FOX executive and had to choose one Futurama movie to air on the network on a random Saturday night, I would not be convinced that would be the one.

What do you mean?

I mean it came out around about 5 years ago or so. Making it "old", seeing as the movie itself was like a sequel to, "Bender's Big Score".
I don't mind the more modern ones though, as they have a bit more humor in them.

First you say you liked the movie, then you say it has too much sexual scenes and violence.

Um... they all came out in the 2000s. 2008/2009 to be precise. They're all new. They're certainly all modern.
Jesus, how young are you?

At this stage, films made in the early to mid 90s can be considered old. Anything after that is a fairly recent release, or at the very least modern. 2000s is new.

The Futurama movies all came out near enough to the same time, over a period of only about a year and a half. In a practical sense they are all the same age. To quibble over a period of only a few months is just stupid.

Yeah they're definitely not old, none of Futurama is old really, but if any Futurama were to be classed as old it would be the original run, not that it is. Perhaps Season One could seem old because it started in the late 90's, but compared to The Simpsons it's still a baby...

Besides, Meerkat, saying that it's old but you "love it anyway" makes it sound like the movie being old is a negative thing. People may talk about the old run vs. the new run of episodes of Futurama, but I don't think anyone would consider the fact that the original episodes came first as anything negative.

And speaking of which, I don't think of the original run as particularly "old" but have no problem calling it the old run because, relative to the new run, that's what it is. The movies were released consecutively, however, so although the one you mentioned is older than two of them, there's nothing separating these movies into a group of "the old ones" and "the new ones" (and you can think of BwaBB as a sequel to BBS and group those together as you did, sure, but BG and ItWGY don't have that same connection).

Yes, we've just reacted to the way you presented your opinion about the show rather than to the opinion itself. Welcome to PEEL.

In my opinion, I thought that Bender's Big Score was the best out of the four movies.  If I had to rank them, I'd go with:

#1  Benders's Big Score
#2  Into the Wild Green Yonder
#3  Beast with a Billion Backs
#4  Bender's Big Game

This doesn't necessarily mean my fourth ranked movie was the worst; the movies were all quite good in their own way.  However, I feel that, for me personally, that's where they should be ranked.

I really enjoyed BBS.  I had a blast watching the time traveling paradox back and forth between Bender and Fry.  The movie really took me by surprise, and I was astounded by the ending.  All in all, I enjoyed the writers' creativity and producers' execution and was thrilled with the movies charm, comic relief, story line and continuity.

But yeah, the one I liked most was BWABB. If I would probably rank them in order myself, as I like to do when coming to a series of movies, it would be this order;

#1. Beast With a Billion Backs.
#2. Bender's Game.
#3. Into The Wild Green Yonder.
#4. Bender's Big Score.

Overall, they were all good movies. I would hope that there are more to come out soon, supposedly to make one for the Grande Finale of Futurama (If there will ever be one).
I wonder if Groening's going to keep the series going long, just like with The Simpsons...

Having just gone through this entire thread to see how many people agreed with my ranking, I found that there was only ONE person who posted the ranking that I would put (some poster named Roger).

My ranking is:
1) Bender's Big Score
2) Beast With A Billion Backs
3) Into The Wild Green Yonder
4) Bender's Game

I just sifted through this entire thread and not a single person seems to agree with my rankings.

And just to clarify, those rankings are:

1. Bender's Big Score
2. The Beast with a Billion Backs
3. Bender's Game
4. Into the Wild Green Yonder

The order in which they were released.

I haven't really looked through the whole thread, but I imagine my rankings are relatively common:

1) Bender's Big Score
2) Into the Wild Green Yonder
3) The Beast with a Billion Backs
4) Bender's Game

I was just watching ITWGY actually. One thing that kinda bugs me is how so much of the movie (especially the first half) is spent on Mars. I would have preferred it back in NNY, especially seeing as it could have been the last we saw of Futurama. But I really liked the Bender/Fanny plot, even if it had no real relevance.

Favourite line is from Zoidberg:

"Just when you think the chase is about to end, it gets twice as exciting!"

More than anything, I don't find it very funny (by Futurama's standards)- which is something I'd also say about 'Bender's Big Score' - but I adore the story in 'Bender's Big Score' and feel that it's good enough to make up for a slight lack of laughs.

But also, I hate the story in 'Into the Wild Green Yonder'. The whole plot falls down for me on the grounds that who cares if they manage to bring back all extinct life when I'm not even convinced that it's ethically right to do so. Fry, himself, points out that they "failed nature's test".
It's supposed to be a big, epic storyline about them saving all life in the universe because the dark one will supposedly slowly but surely destroy all life, but who cares? It's taken the dark ones 2 billion years to destroy as much as life as they had done and now there's only one of them left. And they're clearly not much of a threat given that Leo Wong killed all but one of them inadvertently with some concrete. All life in the entire universe is eventually going to go extinct (as proven in 'The Late Philip J. Fry') so does it really matter if they've still got billions of years on the clock?

I also hate how disjointed the first act is, I hate Snoop Dogg's guest appearance, I find a lot of the locations/characters quite bland (the supreme court isn't the most interesting of places and it's something I felt that we'd seen enough of in the show before, anyway). And whilst I loved the final scene, I felt as if it was tacked on.

But yes... its biggest folly is just not being all that funny, if you ask me.

And I should add that I actually really quite like 'The Beast with a Billion Backs' and 'Bender's Game'. For all their flaws, they're both every bit as funny as I ever expect 'Futurama' to be.

I may be wrong here but aren't Disney and ABC partly owned by the same company? Fox and CC have no relation to each-other and I doubt Fox will ever show Futurama after getting rid of it.

^This.

There should have been a difference between "species failing the test of evolution" and "species passing the test of evolution, but being unrightfully removed by the dark one"

Curiosity Company produces Futurama for Fox Television Productions so technically it still is a FOX show.  The relationship between Fox and Viacom is for the production of new episodes for the Comedy Central Network.

The first network run and movies are sole Fox property.

Man, that LeelaFry Kissing Scene at the end of the last Futurama movie was undescribable.

Having been a man who has kissed many women., can tell you that was amazing.

I trust Leela with every depth and berath of my being.
