    Bender's Big Score

    Has anyone purchased this movie yet? It's the return of Futurama via the first of four dvd movies.

    Despite the plotholes and disruptions in the episode timelines I found Bender's Big Score extremely entertaining, hilarious, and a very well-thought out film. If you're a fan of the series you're gonna love this.

    Re: Bender's Big Score

    I'm delighted that Futurama is back. The movie isn't quite as good as the series was at its best, but it was very good.

    I think this first movie suffered a little bit because it was a little too focused on catering to the hardcore fans. I think now that they've gotten that necessity out of their system, the movies will only get better.

    The plot was a little convuluted. Between this movie and several previous episodes there's just too much going on in the room where Fry is frozen. I almost feel silly criticising, and probably shouldn't take it quite so seriously.

    I think this is gonna be a good way to reindroduce the show. But honestly, does it need it? i know it's not on FOX any more, but it's on adult swim and i'm sure they have more then enough viewers.

    by the way, i watched it and enjoyed it

    It actually is not on Adult Swim anymore. It has moved to Comedy Central.

    Re: Bender's Big Score

    I bought it and found it to be pretty disappointing. It starts off well enough and then it becomes a snoozer. Bender's Big Snore is what I call it.

    But I'm still glad it's back.

    Re: Bender's Big Score

    I liked it for the most part and thought it was a pretty good return for the series, much better than Family Guy's return. They both did the recycled gags to remind you of old episodes, but Bender's Big Score seemed to do it a bit classier than Family Guy did. Overall it kind of was drawn out, and would've rather had it episodic format than movie format.
