Futurama: Bender’s Big Score
20th Century Fox Home Entertainment
Keeping its tail tucked between its legs from the renewal of Family Guy, Fox brings another cancelled animated series back to life. Futurama: Bender’s Big Score opens with Phillip J. Frye, a delivery boy from the year 1999 who was cryogenically frozen until the 30th century, discovering a tattoo of his best friend, an alcoholic robot, on his ass that when examined closely contains a binary code capable of opening time portals. When evil intergalactic spammers get their hands on the code, the adventure begins. The special features are refreshingly unique and include a full episode of Everybody Loves Hypnotoad, plus a math lecture. No other show can combine mathematics, popular soft drinks made from the excrement of worms and Al Gore like Futurama. Welcome back to the future.
