Giz Pick of the Week — Futurama: Bender's Game I've seen some high quality DIVX clips of Futurama before, but when viewing the characters on Blu-ray, the word "perfect" comes to mind (much because you can appreciate the slight imperfections in model outlines). I simply can't imagine Futurama looking better than it does in 1080p. But it's the worthwhile set of extras that makes the disc so desirable.I particularly enjoyed watching the show's artists draw various characters and explain the process of drafting Zoidberg, Leela and Bender step by step. The short Blooper Reel was also a lot of fun, just to watch the actors create the voices of their cartoon counterparts. And of course you get other bonuses like a full commentary with much of the cast, though everyone gets along so well that it sort of becomes an inside joke fest. Other releases of the week...
