    I gotta say, this was probably my favorite of the post-series movies. It meandered everywhere, and it wasn't as tightly written as any of the normal episodes, but it still felt more like a part of the actual series.

    Was anyone else really expecting the
    Dark Ones and Encyclopods to be the Niblonians and the Brains? I mean, two species as old as the universe, one evolved to devour all other life the other being called Encyclopods.

    Granted, they telegraphed the leech from damn near the beginning of the movie, but I still...

    I saw this yesterday, it was pretty good. I agree with De?ad in that it did feel like the series.

    Futurama is one of the best shows ever created. I would also argue that the best episode is Crimes of the Hot (or the clover/Seymour one, if you're into the sappy episodes).

    I have only seen the first movie. When the last one comes out (is it out?) I am going to get the last three and watch them in succession. I have a large group of friends that love this show and it will be g. times.

    I'm not expecting a ton. The first was a slight let down, but I love the characters too much to not enjoy it at all.

    I loved all the post-series movies. I want what Billy West was talking about in that movie someone posted a few pages back: more seasons. Fox really fucked up when they canceled Futurama.

    With the quality of production and great cast appreciation of the series not to mention each other, and a revived popularity

    Man, Fox could absolutely SMOKE most of their competition if they'd get their management decisions straight.

    Is Crimes of the Hot the one where Bender steals the $10,000 cigar and Fry drinks 100 cups of coffee?

    'Cos that episode made me laugh 'till I cried.

    Whereas the Seymour ep. just made me cry like a little bitch...

    No, Crimes of the Hot is where Nixon tries to kill all the robots in the world at once because they pollute too damn much

    I just saw benders game last night. I've really liked all of the movies but I do still like the episodes better.

    Futurama is probably one of my favorite tv shows of all time.

    Yeah I loved the coffe episode and the clover episode. My favorite cartoon series, I had started watching into the green yonder until my fucking tv blew up.

    I was about 1/3 of the way through I think, but I enjyoed what I had seen so far
    Had just gotten to the large mini golf :P

    Yeah I don't know why they would do that.

    Some short-term gain from a new episode, by taking away the impact of one of the most well remembered.

    I like to think that the paradox removal fixed all of that seymour stuff.

    It had to, its science

    you never saw seymour die and he was found standing up

    stop complaining about anachronisms in a show that already had time-travel in which a man becomes his own grandfather

    I think they partly did it because Seymour seemed to die as he lie down but he was fast-fossilized while standing. They resolved that little problem by having Seymour stand up and get caught in Bender's blast.

    Yeah but all the stuff with his Nephew had to also be "fixed" because his nephew never knew him. I figure the whole load of crap about the paradox removal was simply and blatantly their way of dealing (or not dealing) with any of the plot holes that would have developed due to the time travel.

    its futurama goddamnit you don't need to over-analyze shit.

    I am apparently the only person who was really pleased with the Seymour resolution in Bender's Big Score? Because when I first saw that episode and the end rolled around, I was waiting for the punchline... and waiting... and waiting... and suddenly I realized that this was the most horribly upsetting ending of anything that ended, ever. Worse than when they shoot everyone in The Great Escape.

    I mean, for dramatic purposes I understand how the punch was pulled retroactively, but from a sympathy standpoint I was like "AGH I HATE YOU WORLD" after that episode and refused to watch it whenever it was on.
