Trivia

Morcs are based on "Orcs" from Lord of The Rings, and Robin Williams's character "Mork" from the show Mork and Mindy. That's why the creatures sound similar to Robin Williams. See more »

Goofs

During Nibbler's flashback (which takes place 36 years ago, i.e. now), Mom is seen with her adult sons. However, the flashback only starts 36 years ago; by the time we see Mom with her sons time has moved ahead to be just before Leela first encounters Nibbler. This is made clear by Nibbler meeting Leela as he emerges from the bushes where he carried out the "evacuation" that Mom and sons saw, moments earlier. See more »

Quotes

Professor Hubert Farnsworth: [the Planet Express ship has been seriously damaged in a demolition derby] Yes, she's a wonderful ship, all right - as beautiful now as the day I got botched laser eye surgery.

Shall We Play A Game?...
8 February 2009 | by newkflSee all my reviews

Matt Groening had spawned another winner with Futurama: Bender's Game. I would had never viewed Dungeons & Dragons as being that imaginative. I played Dungeons & Dragons when I was much younger, but did not possess the imagination that Bender displayed with that version. Bender was accused of not having an imagination at first, but when he finally grasped one, Bender could not separate fiction from reality. Frankly, I would had settled for Bender's version of "reality" because at least there were surprises at every corner. Sometimes surprises are better than the same mundane ruts we had forced ourselves into. The final battle between dark matter reminded me so much how we are dependent upon oil from foreign countries. At least the professor was smart enough to create another crystal that would eliminate dependency on dark matter when they were within a certain range of each other. I would certainly play this version of Dungeons & Dragons, mainly for the creativity and most importantly, for a more positive outcome for the world today. Futurama: Bender's Game was certainly worth the viewing pleasure and with Matt Groening at the helm, you cannot miss.
