are there any rumours of a boxed set of the movies? they still seem to be stupidly priced individually.
I think they were only sold together as part of that Bender Head packaging (which was also stupidly not sold with just the head)

I disagree. Bender's Game was the weakest. While the other three were millions of kinds of awesome, BG just wasn't funny. It was obviously supposed to be just humor and no character development (like Beast With a Billion Backs), and therefore it should be funny.
I assume we'll see a new version of their old ship next week.  Or will they spend the rest of the series flying around in the dinobot ship?

How many times have they destroyed the ship?  It's always rebuilt for next week, he's the professor, damn it!

That's ridiculous! I want character development and growth and drama and consequences from my funny picture cartoon!
Even COMEDY shows are much better with those.

...Am I the only one who thinks that show isn't half bad if you turn your brain off and just look at the cute baby Olsen Twins?

Yes, Full House was brilliant.

We said character development, not contrived one-dimensional emotions. ;)

I thought the voice of that furry (or whatever she described herself as) sounded familiar from the moment she said "Wow, that's a great costume!"

Lo and behold, turns out it was Katee Sackhoff - aka Kara Thrace aka Starbuck!

That's awesome. I wonder if they wanted to work with her because of Battlestar or the fact Matt Groening wanted to have someone else born and raised in Oregon around for a while (too much L.A. can drive even the most patient Oregonian crazy)...

LOVED the Comic Con stuff.... I about lost it when the guy had to adjust the microphone.  I said to my friend "Gee, they've NEVER been to Comic Con, have they?!"
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

That was a big episode for Maurice. He does Kif, Lrrr(r?), and Orson Welles. And possibly the narrator for The Scary Door, not sure on that one.
One of my favorites from the new season. The Fry subplot seemed a bit unnecessary though. Kind of seemed like they just needed something for the main character to do.

Now that I think about it, this season hasn't had many Fry-centric episodes. Rebirth, somewhat Attack of the Killer App, The Duh-Vinci Code, and The Late Phillip J. Fry have had him as the main focus. And excluding Prisoner of Benda, he only gets a few lines in the rest.

Well, the Fry subplot was partially a continuation of the joke from The Birdbot of Ice-Catraz ("She even let me sit in her lap and steer...in this comic I drew"), partially the writers adding a character trait of Fry's they'd initially considered, but then dropped (they mention in the commentary for Birdbot that one of Fry's traits in the show's conceptual phase was that he was always going to be drawing crude comics - but then decided it was better that he only do it occasionally), and partially a knock on bad fancomics they've probably seen at cons. But mostly, it was just a plot device to get the main characters to Comic-Con, thus facilitating their run-in with Lrr.

And yeah, Maurice is The Scary Door guy.

I love that not all the episodes have been focused on Fry. They haven't forgotten him, but it's great to see the other characters get some more development. Honestly, who would've expected Scruffy to get this much character development?

I can't belive I missed the top of Lerrs head when he was asking to crash on the couch, the second time watching it I almost did a spit take...

I thought the most funny costumes were Scruffy and Zoidberg.
