Inter-Dimensional Love-a-thon

For those who don't know (and who doesn't know?), the second of the direct-to-DVD Futurama movies, The Beast With A Billion Backs, came out Tuesday.

I watched it earlier today and am sitting through the commentary right now. It's great, though I'm still not sure if they live up to the record of show's run on FOX back in the day. Like Bender's Big Score, it's a cavalcade of characters from earlier episodes and a few new ones, but this feels more like Futurama than Big Score did.

I'm always surprised at how funny the commentors are, but I guess that kind of makes sense given that they're the people who write, voice, and animate the show.
