Trivia:
When we first see the Dark Matter mine, a truck comes out. The alien-language phrase written on the side of the truck reads "OBEY MOM".See more »
Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: Cubert Farnsworth and Dwight Conrad are seen playing Dungeons and Dragons using a dodecahedron (12-sided dice). The dodecahedron is used only for damage done by greataxes and barbarian hit dice. It's been claimed that the correct dice used should have been an icosahedron (20-sided dice), ultimately the rules are dictated by the Dungeon Master (in this case, Dwight).See more »
Quotes:
Professor Hubert Farnsworth:I'm sure I don't need to explain that all dark matter in the universe is linked in the form of a single non-local metaparticle.See more »

FAQ

Why are Fry and Leela the only two people that seem out of place in the fantasy world when many characters were in the room that had the two crystals?

Back to Futurama, 7 November 2008
Author: Naboo13 from Germany

I just watched "Benders Game", and for the first time in 3 tries the movie version managed to give me that cozy feeling the series used too. I grew accustomed to the predecessors and like them more the more I view them, but this one had me from the start. The story flows without a downer. The jokes are once again intelligent and often subtle enough to make you pause and think for a moment.

Maybe its the more linear and less "crazy" storyline that does the trick, maybe the deeper character development than in earlier installments, "Benders Game" should definitely satisfy fans and newcomers alike.
