Look, drinking all day is not healthy. But what if you and the missus signed up for a nine-hour Napa County wine tour, and you want to get your money’s worth? Or maybe you’re hitting your bachelor pal’s BBQ, and the action starts at noon. Or, maybe, what the hell, you just want to go all out on a hot summer day. This…
Amidst all of the Halloween horror, Bender lightens things up by playing a robot from Laputa: Castle In The Sky, although he offers his human friends something less appropriate (but tastier) than a flower. Illustration by cartoonist Boulet.
As Futurama winds down, we take this episode to look back at all the good times it's given us. And we do it with Bender's ass as a motivation.
"The Inhuman Torch" shows off how fun Futurama is when it features a great parody of current events. It stumbles, a little, when it comes to the relationships in the show — but at least it has Zapp Brannigan.
This week's episode, "Forty Percent Leadbelly," goes off the rails, taking us away from a story that's interesting to a story that isn't. It also proves that no show, no matter what its available talent, can survive an ironic rap sequence.
Futurama's surly robot, Bender, is mostly known for not giving much of a damn about anything, and for being actively antagonistic towards anything good. In this episode, for once, we see him stand up for what matters to him. With a little help from the criminal court system.
Taking a shot at celebrity culture is so easy that it's pretty much like taking a shot at the Earth itself — it's more remarkable if you miss. Still, last night's Futurama episode The Thief of Baghead still gets in a few good shots, including some great visuals — and one character finally dies!
In 2010, the Washington, DC, election board set up an electronic voting system to collect absentee ballots. But a few weeks before the election, the system was flooded with votes for the hard-drinking, grave-robbing robot Bender for school board head. So who launched this plot to put a robot in charge of our…
Meet the brand new alien from Futurama's season premiere in our exclusive sneak peek of the first episode! Also, find out whether Bender's a Mac or a PC.
To celebrate Futurama's return, creator David X. Cohen answered all our burning Futurama questions. How scandalous will the new cable version be? What's happened with Fry and Leela, what's a "robosexual," and how will they make fun of Twitter? Spoilers.
In anticipation of the Planet Express gang's return this June, Futurama's going whole hog with new concept art and storyboards. Check out Bender dancing, the Leela-Bot, "the "Birthing Device," and Fry giving Bender mouth-to-ass like some daffy, man-on-robot human centipede.
Excited about the return of Futurama to our television screens? Prepare to lose that feeling: Fox have apparently cut the original voices of Fry, Leela, Bender and many other characters from the revival and are about to recast the roles.
If you picked up the direct-to-DVD Futurama movie The Beast With A Billion Backs, like all sane sentients, you'll have noticed a trailer for the third DVD movie, Bender's Game. The Planet Express crew is diving straight into fantasy role-playing, with knights, kings, and Dungeons and Dragons (whose multi-sided dice…
If you've been wondering what to do with yourself between now and the end of the year, you might think about tuning in to the Cartoon Network, where you can watch every single episode of Futurama starting at 11pm tonight, and running until 11:30pm December 31st. If you've got a massive hard drive attached to your DVR,…
Thursday night, Fox threw a redcarpet hootenanny at the Arc Light in L.A. for its first direct-to-DVD feature release of Futurama. "Bender's Big Score," which comes out November 27, marks the sporadically amusing franchise's return to grandeur. The occasion was celebrated, of course, by making voice-over artists pose…
