In a nutshell I liked it and it is a worthwhile buy for any Futurama fan.

However it isn't amazing. The format doesn't quite translate from a half hour tv programme to a 1 1/2 hour film. The writers evidently tried to cram as many of the minor characters in as possible which in some ways is a good thing but characters such as Robot Santa and Al Gore perhaps were given bigger parts than they should have been at the expense of say... Luur.

That said there are many laugh out loud moments and the plot while ludicrous is no worse than many in the TV series. A very welcome return for a much missed show.

Like many, I adored Futurama when it was on TV, and like many, I was heartbroken when Fox cancelled the series in the underhanded manner that it did, so the news that it was coming back in direct to DVD movie form was very very welcome, and thankfully, this movie manages to maintain the series' high quality.

Taking place 2 years after the end of the series(and taking place in the year 3007), Bender's Big Score doesn't so much have a plot as it does a series of plots running concurrent to each other, like several episodes of the TV show running at once almost, but each one getting an equal amount of focus and importance. The 'central' plot(if you can call it that) concerns a group of nudist internet spammers conning Professor Farnsworth into signing ownership of Planet Express over to them and their increasing greed as they discover that Fry holds the key to time travel(in a plot point that cleverly ties right back into the very beginnings of the tv show and various past plots) and set about using Bender in a scam to steal the greatest treasures of Earth's past.

At the same time, Leela falls in love with an orderly called Lars, much to Fry's jealousy... Hermes is decapitated(Not fatally, surprisingly) and ends up losing his wife... and several other sub plots that tie into each other. It has an awful lot going on, yes, but the manner in which all the plots come together at the end is so superbly and cleverly written that it will have you genuinely intrigued. This is a funny movie, yes, but moreso, it's fantastic plot and sharp writing also make absolutely gripping. At points, you may even find yourself with a lump in your throat, I kid you not.

In 2003, Twentieth Century Fox made one of the biggest mistakes in television history - they cancelled FUTURAMA, Matt Groening's brilliant follow-up to THE SIMPSONS (1989-????). But thanks to strong DVD sales and TV repeats, the show is back with four DVD movies.

BENDER'S BIG SCORE (2007) is worth the four-year wait. However, it's not perfect due to it's major gripe. And that is the relationship between Fry & Leela. At the end of the Season Four finale - "The Devil's Hands Are The Idle Playthings" - it seemed that Fry & Leela have got together. But in this film, which is set two years after the stories in Season Four, the relationship has gone back to square one. A very good question for Groening, the series co-developer, David X. Cohen, the writer of this DVD film, Ken Keeler, to answer about this.

Apart from the gripe, everything about BENDER'S BIG SCORE rocks. Bender steals the show as always (He's up there with Homer Simpson!), the two songs are hilarous, the animation remains intact despite the four-year gap and it doesn't feel like four episodes edited together (It's even better than THE SIMPSONS MOVIE [2007] apprently!).

It's great to have FUTURAMA back and I am looking forward to the next three DVD movies. The next one coming out is THE BEAST WITH A BILLION BACKS (due out late-June 2008).

Format: DVD
This feature length Futurama adventure is well plotted and intelligent just as the series was but it is definitely not as laugh out loud funny. This may be simply because, as a long time fan of Futurama, its humour has become predictable for me, I don't know. I don't think it is over complicated, but a very clever plot and premise which can be enjoyed many times over.

This will definitely not ruin your memories of the series as it is quite different and equally good as many of the episodes. However, if you are looking to enjoy this in the same way you have with the series then I would advise watching it in more than one sitting, this way your attention will not be lost as a result of its length.

The special features are definitely worth a look, but the Maths lecture is probably only really of interest to intellectuals and avid Futurama fans (for these groups it is very enjoyable) and the Episode of Hypnotoad is best enjoyed with a lot of use of the fast forward button.

Overall, I think Futurama suited the half hour format better but this is definitely a great feast for all fans and of course, it is the first of many films to come.

I am a huge fan of 'Futurama'. I love its characters, its ridiculous situations... everything about it. It was the sharpest animated comedy on television (better than even the mighty 'Simpsons', which had already started to go off the rails slightly by the time that 'Futurama' first appeared). I have all of the episodes and have watched them to death, so I was delighted and excited when I heard that four new DVD movies were being made. And although it isn't 100% perfect, it makes a reasonable return.

I got my copy from US import (to get it sooner) and couldn't wait for it to arrive.

My main worry was that, after around five years out of production, that the sharpness of the original series would be lost. But I need not have worried. Although I wouldn't say that it is a classic example of 'Futurama', the characters and sharp lines are still very much on form.

The plot itself isn't really one of 'Futurama's best, but it has a lot of twists and turns and some good moments along the way.
The opening few minutes, as Planet Express goes back into business, are probably the best, and it's great to see our show "back on air". The minutes after that as the real story kicks in are good, and although things start to loose their way slightly later on, the gags hold up well enough to see things through.
Without giving too much away, the way that things are finally wrapped up and explained is pleasing, but you do have to pay attention and stick with it.

Leela and in particular Fry get a lot of screen time, as does Bender - who (being many fans favourite character) is very much used as the selling point of this DVD, even getting his name in the title.
