New Futurama DVD advance review
Disclaimer: TV Squad will soon be posting its own review of this Direct-to-DVD Futurama movie. Rather than keep our loyal readers in suspense, we'll be directing you to another review site until the DVD finally arrives in the mail.
Screen Jabber was able to grab an advance copy of the second Futurama DVD release, The Beast With A Billion Backs (lucky bastards). As a result, we are treated to a review by them.
The story takes place about a month after the events of Bender's Big Score. It seems that there has been a rip in time and space and a giant mutli-tentacled alien is reaching through to try and have sex with everyone on the planet (if two people having sex are the beast with two backs, then...well, you get the idea).
A couple of subplots are there as well: Fry gets a new girlfriend (voiced by Brittany Murphy) and Kif tries to marry Amy. The latter means an extended appearance by Zapp Branigan, so Zapp Branigan fans can rejoice (of course, the biggest Zapp Branigan fan is Zapp Branigan).
Other familiar faces appear in the story (including the Giant Amazon Women and their Snu Snu). The review says it's better than the first release. I'm looking forward to it. How's about you?
