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!
If Futurama has taught me anything, it's that one day factory robots will wander the streets drinking, swearing, and occasionally bending pieces of metal for a living. But that's still a long ways off, as this video of a comparatively primitive pipe-bending bot illustrates.
The show hasn't quite been the same since it returned from cancellation, but we'll always have a soft spot for Futurama in our hearts, particularly Bender. Which is why we're completely in love with this custom-made Operation game featuring the lovable robot scamp.
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.
At first I thought this just was pretty great Futurama - Gears of War mash-up Then Jason told me the same guy provided the voice for both Bender and Marcus Fenix, and my world collapsed in on itself.
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.
