I work at BlockBuster an we just got the new futurama movie in, Into the wild green yonder. It wasn't bad. But I would say it is the worst of the four movies.

Ugh… maybe the series would have been better just being left alone. It's like ending the Simpsons after Season 7 or 8 - I'm happy it never happened, but the show would be flawless if it did happen.

I have only seen the first two and I didn't gush over either of them.

I thought that Bender's Big Score had the best plot to it. I really liked the idea. The Beast With A Billion Backs was a little less inventive, and for some stupid reason I watched this one first, but it was definetly funnier. The third one was not as good as the first two, but still produced laughs and was certainly watchable.

Overall, well worth watching but – needs more Zapp Branigan. Easily the best character in the show.

As for the sad episodes, the one with the clover was great. In a depressing way. Which is also a good way. But not. Yet is.
Please, please, you give me too little credit.

I thought Into The Wild Green Yonder was better than Beast With a Billion Backs. But Bender's Big Score was still easily the best.

I just watched Into The Wild Green Yonder last night. It's kind of sad to think we may not see any more Futurama. At least they ended it off in a good way, I think. The folks in charge of the show are still keen on making more, if they can work out an agreement. They say the DVD sales have been pretty good.

I thought benders big score was great, beast of a billion backs was.. okay I guess it had its moments. And the other 2 I am yet to see but I did get ahold of them today and am planning to watch them.

Edit: now I've seen benders game and it stunk for a while and then it got awesome.
if I was a teapot I think I'd be orange.

Ah, the fourth one is out. As a die hard fan I'm obligated to watch it.

Also:



Edit: Just saw it…… man what a crappy ending. I agree with it being the least of the four movies.
Those were my two cents.

man do i miss this show. It was so great because the storyline and developing relationships just kept getting better and better. The episode where he finds his dog was just pure gold and is a perfect example of what a great show is capable of doing.

Yeah I love Futurama. After awhile when the Simpsons started to get really bad I started rewatching it on Comedy Central. I almost want it to come back but I think they will probably just ruin it so I'm glad they made the movies instead. Bender's Game was pretty good and so was The Beast with a Billion Backs.

The writing staff at Futurama are just genius. They tell great stories while remaining insanely funny. I'm such a huge fan I've probably seen every episode a million times. LOL I had a discussion once about how you can tell alot about somebody on whether they like Futurama or Family Guy better.

Well the final ending of the last movie was a bit of a disappointment for me. They did such a half assed job with making an ending that supposedly meant the end of Futurama yet could still mean that the series could continue. I also hated how they solved the ongoing relationship issue that had plagued Fry an Lela throughout the show.

Makes me wonder how the future season will play out.

All in all I think the movie formats were a bad idea. Like someone pointed out, they do a great job telling a story in episode length. Once they stretched into a feature length, it lost something.
Those were my two cents.

I've watched both Bender's Game and Beast of Billion Backs…

The first one was awesome, the second one, not that great, but still enjoyable…

Wow, really?! Well, I'm going to stay tuned for official announcements. As much as I don't think FOX deserves the show, I still want it to be true.

Dammit. :D You HAD to go and post that shot.

I had actually just lost my own dog Shaggy to nasal sarcoma (cancer) the week I'd seen this. I can honestly say that this alone out of all of the TV I've watched in my life actually made me a big bubbly mound of tears.

I actually can't bring myself to watch it again anytime soon.

To me, that's one of the things that Futurama did well was find the normal and poignant in the fantastic, better than a lot of stuff that's currently on.

I turn off the TV whenever I watch that episode and it comes to that part. Too sad.
