As a fan of Futurama, I was excited to hear the series was coming back as several feature films, but the first one caught me off-guard. After all, it was the Futurama I knew and loved, but it was, like, an hour and a half long. It wasn't three episodes mashed together, either. It was one looooong episode. The trick for me was learning to get used to the pacing, which I eventually did, and now I think it's great. This week, the third movie, Bender's Game, hit stores, and it's even trickier to wrap my head around, because there's a pretty lengthy Lord of the Rings parody in it, which is longer than an actual episode all by itself. Still, that chewy Futurama goodness is still there, and the title is a pretty awesome pun. And the extras... oh, you could plotz over these extras. And also Zoidberg was there, even!
