Futurama Holiday Spectacular! 11/21/10

More Futurama is always a good thing - and this was a nice sudden surprise I JUST heard about. So a heads up to set your DVRs for this Sunday!

The Planet Express crew learns the true meaning of Xmas, Robanukah, and Kwanzaa in this all-new special.

w00t! I'm going to have to watch the 11:02 showing, since I also have Top Gear USA to watch and Luther on BBCA to record. It's nice/crappy to have too much on one day - sorta like a mini-marathon all packed together.

The first few eps of the new season were a little ragged, but it ended with absolute brilliance, especially "The Prisoner of Benda", "The Late Philip J. Fry", and "Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences". Therefore, I expect nothing but sheer genius tonight.

It's the Albino Humping worm!

Why do they call it that?

Because it has no pigment.

I absolutely hated the episode. I think it was the juxtaposition of the Treehouse of Horror format with the Futurama characters that felt off to me. Anyway, I'm glad that others were able to enjoy it.

Futurama has been doing this for quite a while with their Anthology of Interest episodes. Doing it at Christmas reminded me of seemed like a good twist on that for me.

I readily admit to not being the biggest Futurama aficionado out there; I've mostly seen the episodes that I have because of the Bender head gift-set that my girlfriend's son is always watching. I must have missed the anthology episodes.

There were 2 Anthologies of Interest beforehand. The format isn't new.

I really enjoyed this episode. The Al Gore cameos were hilarious.
