Ok, but nothing great

So here is what may be the last view we ever get of Futurama, and if that's the case... well, they could've gone out on a higher not.

Don't get me wrong. Futurama: Into the Wild Green Yonder is ok and all, but it suffers from the same problem as two of the other three direct-to-DVD movies (the exception being Bender's Game), in that it just doesn't feel like the show did.

Part of this is because they are doing it as a movie rather than as episodes, but it was written in an episodic form so it can be aired later on Comedy Central. You don't have to reach too far to see where the episode cuts are, and that causes plot lines developed in episode one (like Bender's seduction of a fine ladybot), to be dropped well before episode four.

Still, it had its funny moments and there wasn't anything particularly wrong with it. I just hope that if they do more Futurama they have the good sense to go back to doing it as seasons and not these little movies, cause just don't work.

What did you think of this review?
