GWC Watch: Bender’s Big Score

If you've listened to more than about five mintues of GWC, you know we're big Futurama fans. So how could we possibly pass up watching and commenting on the first new Futurama material in years?

We snagged our copy just days after release, and have already watched it a few times. Our advice: ignore the mediocre reviews and obtain a copy right away. This feature-length flick wasn't made for critics, it wasn't made for new audiences, and it wasn't made for film buffs. It was made for us, the fans. It's an 88-minute thank you to everyone who stuck with the series after its untimely demise wrapped in an 88-minute sendup of Fox and the moronic executives who canned the show filled with 88-minutes of glee.

Look for a DTA podcast on this down the pike, and don't be afraid to join the Frak Party to celebrate Planet Express' glorious return.

    I added this to my netflix queue last week and was dismayed but unsurprised to see that “this item currently has a very long wait time”

    le sigh

    I want this, but I’m afraid I’m probably going to have to wait till it airs in tiny chunks on Comedy Central next year. I feel like Zoidberg!

    Now, what’s this about mediocre reviews? The one review I’ve read (from Pajiba.com, and they hate EVERYTHING) was glowing.

    Wow

    I’ll also have to listen to the commentary for once, after hearing them talk ar the San Diego Comic Con

    I can’t understand why the critics have been so hard on Futurama. At the same time they have virtually placed ‘The Simpsons’ on a pedestal. I like both myself. Maybe they suspect that if they start boosting two animated series, then the literati won’t take them seriously. The old anti-toon prejudice is alive and well despite conspicuous pro-Simpson-ism. Frankly there have been lots of great ‘toons over the years (e.g. Rocky and Bullwinkle’s ‘Boris and Natasha’ cold war political satire was just brilliant!) and the critics failures is their loss.

    I love the podcast but have never commented before. I’m always about four or five podcasts behind.

    But my sister is the about.com guide for animated TV, and I thought you guys might be interested in reading the interview she did with Futurama co-creator David X. Cohen about the new dvd. It’s brief but pretty interesting…
