But it is a movie. They may have been produced as four episodes, but they tell one story and are designed to be seen as a whole. No need to be rude.

They're not real movies, though. They're straight-to-video or TV movies depending on how you look at it.

And as well as being movies, they're also episodes. So basically you're right, but so are your friends.

As well as being designed to be seen whole, they were also designed to be seen separately. They were designed to work both ways.

Saying that they're not movies is just downright wrong. Yes, they are also episodes, but they are movies.

Although I didn't rank BWABB highly, I must admit that it's that exact "silliness" or "zany" comedy that I enjoy out of Futurama.  Yeah, the concept is just plain ridiculous.  But if I wanted irony I'd watch something like Curb Your Enthusiasm, or Seinfeld.  Futurama is pretty good with hitting their irony high-notes, but for me, I'm a big fan of the slapstick-raillery humor that Futurama delivers.

I certainly didn't rank Bender's Big Score highly. It just didn't fit what I was after, and it also seemed kind of... strange.. It didn't seem like how Futurama was supposed to be, but the latest movies are getting better. Trial and error, trial and error..

Though does anyone else think that the newer Futurama episodes are funnier than the old ones? I know it's a strange thing to ask, but I've found some of the recent episodes rather more humor-filled.

I suppose that depends on your taste of humour. Personally, I think Seasons 4 and 5 are the funniest.

Also, I don't necessarily consider the funniest episode or season to be the best.

For example, I think Reincarnation is the funniest episode in the series. But not the best. (That would go to The Why of Fry.)

I feel the same way. Even the quality was still good in the really funny episode, it can be much higher in less funny ones. I think AWITM is the funniest episode, but my favorite episode is probably TLPJF or Ocw.

I don't think the newer episodes are funnier at all.

I think at their best, they're equally as funny as the show's original run, sometimes they're sort of oddly unfunny whilst still delivering a wonderful story ('Bender's Big Score', 'Lethal Inspection') and at their worst they're bloody awful ('Holiday Craptacular').

I still love the show and everything, but you asked a question and my honest answer is no.

Also, I agree that the funniest episodes aren't necessarily the best. 'Anthology of Interest II' is probably the funniest episode to me and whilst I do think that it's great - it's far from being my favourite episode.

Ironically, I think In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela, despite being rather average, is actually decently funny.

The only episode that's actually unfunny would be the dreaded Holdiay Craptacular.

I find TFHS pretty funny, but I hate how they die at the end of each segment, they could've made them a little more creative. I mean, still have them die, but in slightly better ways.

The albino humping worm joke was great, but IMO a lot of jokes fell short. (Al Gore asking for change for a noble prize. :nono:)

'Holiday Craptacular' has a lot of great moments, but it's considerably less than almost every other episode and a lot of the jokes are actively bad such as the one mentioned by SGB above.

Eh, it's hard for me to review non-canon episodes on the same criteria I use for canon episodes.  AKA that means I tend to lower the standard significantly, and thought it was fine.

The good thing about non-canon episodes is that you don't need to judge if the plot is good or not (besides how good each segment's story is). You can just sit back and laugh and not give a shit about anything else.

But yeah, I'll be interested to see how a new Futurama movie turns out, if they ever make another one. Which I assume they will, it'll just take a bit of time, like with the other ones.

I guess if they could four good movies, then they can make five good movies. But it would have to be some really outta-here messed up sci-fi demented mind-twisting plot! That would be cool! :D

My favorite is Bender's Big Score, I favor it slightly over Bender's Game. Futurama always has great time travel episodes and a movie involving time travel should be no different. And it wasn't. Overall, I'd say BBS is the most emotionally impacting of all four of the movies, and Bender chasing down Fry was great too ("Struggling alone against incredible odds I, Bender, managed to kill him"). The ending is pretty sweet as well. Good stuff.

I don't understand why so many people find Bender's Game so boring. I for one, find it extremely entertaining, and the humor is almost at it's best.

... Bender's Game ...I for one, find ... the humor is almost at it's best.

That's because you're fourteen, kid. As you grow older, you might find that you don't appreciate the "humour" in BG as much as you do right now. That's because it's rather peurile, almost entirely reliant on cliche, derivative, and just not very good. It's nowhere near as funny as, for example, Reincarnation.

Then again, you might not mature at all as you grow older, and could find the jokes in BG just as funny as you do now, in ten years time. I suppose it depends on your inner potential (or lack of it).

I thought Bender's Game was pretty good when I first saw it. I don't think the main problem is the humour though. I mean, the first half is, in my opinion, brilliant. The issue is that the remainder of the movie has no real connection to the first, and it leaves the entire medieval part of the story feeling a bit... pointless.

And nothing makes any sense... at all. Not very often does the show use "magic" to drive the story forward, which is one of the reasons why I despise Neutopia.

I think that Bender's Game is arguably the funniest of the movies (a handful of weak gags aside) - it's just the messy storyline that lets it down.

As I remember it, BG's list of jokes runs from the fairly standard "D&D players are nerds" to the cringeworthily direct LotR parodies, to toilet humour, to unbelievably forced sex jokes, and is overall rather crude, even when compared to episodes like AWITM.

I'll watch it again just to be sure, but I think I'm pretty much right in saying that.

There's nothing particularly clever or inspired in there, really. Admittedly, the movie has a few good moments, but the humour and the storyline both leave a lot to be desired.

Some of the LOTR references were pretty bad, I'll agree. But I liked how Fry's design came to resemble Gollum, and they didn't attempt to explain it, since it was pretty self-explanatory.  :p

Pretty much anything with lots of Mom entertains me, and I went from tolerating to liking the Cornwood section of the movie. I agree with cyber_turnip that it's probably the funniest of the Futurama movies.

Mine is 'Bender's Big Score' by a landslide. Although it did have it's faults, such as dragging scenes or unnecessary flashbacks (Leelu, anyone?), it also had many great aspects. The basic story of the movie was both creative and interesting, the comedy was for the most part spot-on, and the execution of many scenes, such as the space war, was perfect. Overall, i just also admit that this one was the most like a movie; it had multiple plot-lines, with it's main one tieing them all together, like most feature films. As a side-note, I like how this one is a semi-musical, as well, as I feel that adds to the 'Movie' feeling. Overall, this one has the most 'Futurama'-y feel to it, what with it's sci-fi story, and many recurring characters.

My second favorite is Into the Wild Green Yonder. This one had many more faults than BBS in my opinion, such as a very sub-par story (I felt like the sub-plot of Fry learning to read minds was much more interesting than the main plot of the Feministas, which is not a good thing), so-so comedy, a dead-end Bender story that only lasted for half of the movie and a tacked on ending (Don't get me wrong; I love the ending, but as others have said in the past, it just didn't belong with this movie). It's upsides were a great subplot (Fry and #9), beautiful animation (The dwarf star planet was spectacular), and some very emotional or exciting scenes. Had the story been switched, with Fry's story being main and the feminista's being the subplot, I'd have liked this one much more.

Hooray, I've been merged! What an Honor!

On a side note, I like the one where New New York is placed inside a giant dome.
