The King of Beers card was bigger than the real playing cards but the cards that Bender was dealt at the start of the game are both the same size.

At the end of the movie when Calculon was thanking the members of the academy and Windows,the voice said Windows 7 instead of Windows Vista.As my Windows Vista is a jailor and locks up repeatedly the use of Windows 7 must be a goof.



Microsoft must have exerted a little pressure.

That's not a goof. That's a line change. Since Windows 7 is about to replace Windows Vista, the producers must have had Dimaggio record it again with the updated line.

You mean Maurice LaMarche not DiMaggio but fair point.
And when did they update it? For the tv release?

Whoops! Right, Lamarche voices Calculon. Thanks for the correction.

Yeah, the line was changed for last night's premiere of ITWGY (and the first showing of the "episode" cuts), seemingly for the reasons I stated.

Interestingly enough, you remember that part in the ITWGY trailer where Bender says "and if you think that's shocking wait till you see..."? That's actually the "To Be Continued" that ends chapter 3 (act 9) of the TV cut.

So did they show them all on the same day...like in a row?

If so what was the point of having them make it so that the movies could be split into episodes? It just ended up ruining the quality of them, especially BWABB & BG.

Oh, you're from the UK! Yeah, Comedy Central shows the movies as, well, movies. I think they think that if they were shown separately it wouldn't hold the interest of a casual viewer as much as one big run-through would (I agree with them on that, if that's the reason). They'd get confused having to remember what happened previously.

Yes, you're right that having to be written as TV episodes did indeed bring down the quality of the films (especially the middle two). Really, this is the fault of whoever thought they would work as separate episodes in the first place.

When it comes to a mostly stand-alone episodes show, 2-parters are alright. But once you start hitting three or more, you're asking your audience to remember too much.

The movies, no matter how well written, would never have worked as 4-parters. I suspect that when the show goes to syndication the movie episodes will end up the least popular (not because of the content (though you can certainly point to the first three for that) but because it's simply annoying to have to remember something over 4 days (or imagine airings being split over weekends)).

20th Century Fox or the producers should have realized the movies couldn't work as 4-part stories. They should have either written a Direct-To-DVD season, or had more confidence in the product and trust that if the movies were good they would continue selling on the shelves (plus, they could always eventually package them as S5). Real shame (at least ITWGY is awesome).

Yeah simply put it was handled badly by Fox and CC. But it gave us the results we wanted....new weekly episodes.
And I guess the ultimate reason would be for more episodes to sell for syndicationand therefore more money.
