    sweet.
    does this officially mean that the studios are out of original ideas, and that they will only start bringing back only the good stuff?
    hopefully Fox keeps it on at the same time and one the same night for more than a month straight this time so that people will actually be able to watch it.

    Maybe the various Futurama movies in between were just popular enough to convince the execs to bring it back.

    Haven't seen it yet, but just the title of the last film cracked me up.

    Beast with a Billion Backs? The premise was kind of silly, but then it is comedy!

    I don't believe that Flexo's full name was ever revealed. It doesn't show up on wikipedia or the futurama wiki.

    You can thank me for not wanting to do anything more productive right now.

    I assume you are trying to guess the word that will trigger the bomb and get you banned?

    You know, I know a guy who makes shiny metal roses. Iron. Not daffodils, though.

    Bender's Game was extremely promising. I still haven't seen The Beast with a Billion Backs though. Hope they can keep it up to the standard they've set. Best... commentaries... ever. It's the ultimate combo of intellectual & balls out humour.
