New Futurama

Howdy chaps!

One of the cooler things I managed to see (after lining up for almost an hour) at San Diego was a five minute preview of the new Futurama movie. Excited! There's four new movies, first released onto DVD (the first one this november), and then broken down into four times four episodes - giving Comedy Central 16 new eps to play on Cable. And SINCE it's now on cable, that frees them up to do dirtier jokes - of which several were on display. Yay!

And they had the whole cast come out and read a 'bridge comic' (between the last ep and the new series) on stage. The guy who does Bender just IS Bender. But it was all awesome. Seeing Billy West having conversations with himself as Fry and the Professor is just plain cool.

OMFG. That's why Billy's at Armageddon this year.

Oh lordy lordy lordy. It was good to see Rough Draft in action with the Simpsons movie. And it's going to rock to see them doing Futurama again.
I shouldn't be here.

I'm very jealous Lil' Sketchy, very jealous!

I was excited about the Simpson's movie coming to Longreach in a couple of weeks, but now I've almost peed myself with joy that there is more Futurama on the horizon...sweet Zombie Jesus, that's good news everyone.

Ha ha! yeah, that thought occured to me too, Cactus. Oh well...

One thing they said was that DiMaggio originally read for the professor with his Bender voice, so we got to hear Bender say 'Good news everybody!' It wasn't the same...

you lucky devil. that would've been amazing.

(after a recent house move i just discovered the removalists had nicked my futurama dvds. spit in a man's eye, kick a man while he's down, but stealing a man's futurama box sets is purest evil.)
