When it was announced Futurama would be back with four feature-length DVDs I was ecstatic. The first one came out, I loved it, and then. . .that was it. I turned on Futurama for a stupid reason I won’t get into here.
But I finally watched movie #2 last night and it is fantastic. It truly embraces insane, stream-of-consciousness thinking blended with hardcore nerdish sci-fi. It’s been said before, but there is more hard SF in an episode of Futurama than almost any other TV show, really.
This one involves a polygamous octopus monster from space voiced by David Cross.
