    5-0 out of 5 stars It's Futurama The Game Man!!!!
    Wow, this is a great gaame for ps2 based on the hit series
    by Matt Groening. The game has all the voice actors in the game, and an original story to boot. There's over thrity minutes of
    cinematics, the action is top notch and the laughs are over the top.

    Futurama the game reunites the casts from this hit series, Billy West, Katey Sagal , John Di Maggio as Fry, Leela and Bender as they try to stop their evil mom who has bought out Planet Express and plans to rule the universe. She enslaves humanity and makes the earth into a moving killer robot reminiscent of Unicron from Transformers!! The graphics are really awesome, you also play through each characters collecting different items and foiling moms plan. All I can say is get the game if your a Futurama fan, you wont regret it.

    3-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for Futurama Fans Who are also Gamers
    I was very hesitant to check out this game when I had heard it come out... And I am a DIE HARD Futurama fan. It's almost a sort of rite of passage that in order to become a TRUE Futurama fan, you need to play this game (not necessarily finish it, but play a good deal of it)...

    The storyline seems like it was a rejected episode idea- but apparently an idea good enough to make into a video game.
    The gameplay is a LOT of fun- rather simple moves in such vast, demanding environments. The characters each have their particular gameplay so that once a level/character gets rather tedious to play, you either end up doing something completely different with the character (i.e. with Fry, instead of running around shooting at people, you hop into a chicken walker and rely on blasting all these robots to bits) end up finishing in time to play a new character with his/her own different moves/motives.
    And moreover, It stinks to have to collect items besides "health items" along the way (i.e. Bender collects those jewels from the episode, "A Cyclops Built For Two"), but it's worth it to get the special stuff in the end.
    Oh! And the environments contain little gags and quirks from the show, much to the delight of this veteran Futurama fan.

    I doubt that anyone who wasn't a Futurama fan would truly enjoy this game, but it's an upbeat, light-hearted game. It's easy to get the hang of, but still takes a long time to play, even if you're a rather skilled gamer (let's just say it's not so easy to stay alive from time to time...). I wholeheartedly recommend this game for all Futurama fans and maybe to the gamers who also enjoy the Simpsons and sci-fi [spoofs].

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great
    I see a lot of bad reviews for this game right now but I think that Futurama fans should go and get this game. Especially now that it's only 20 dollars. I beat the game in like a year because I stopped playing at one point then played again. Don't listen to the bad reviews this game is great. Some levels are really hard but you can always use cheat codes. You play as fry, leela, bender, and dr.zoidberg. I also have to say that the game is like crash bandicoot so if you like those kind of games then you most likly will like this game. The cutscenes are also very funny. The problem with the game is that you have to collect all the nibblers in a level to unlock stuff and to unlock cutscenes which sucks because it's sometimes hard to find them all and I would like to unlock the scenes after I win the level not after I win the level and collect all the nibblers. Also the camera is also very bad because it doesn't always follow you which may cause you to die. Anyways if you like Futurama go get this game! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    It's no surprise that The Hot Chick is stupid; what's remarkableis the ambition of its stupidity. After a hokey, Mummy-likeprologue to establish the body-switching spell cast by an ancient pair ofAbyssinian earrings, the low-concept lunacy begins when those earrings aredivided, eons later, between a cruel-minded high school campus queen (RachelMcAdams) and a small-time crook (Rob Schneider), who switch bodies (externallyhe's the hot chick, and she's the vulgar sleazeball) and must cope with theconsequences of their sudden gender crisis. This tired idea may seem fresh andfunny to eight-year-olds and morons, but Schneider and first-time director TomBrady (who wrote Schneider's The Animal) fail to fulfill the potential oftheir ripe comedic premise. McAdams plays a guy better than Schneider plays agirl (which explains her limited screen time), and the expected jokes (mostlyinvolving urinals and awkward prom dates) are sluggishly uninspired. In a cameorole as a dreadlocked stoner, coproducer Adam Sandler offers only brief comedicrespite. --Jeff Shannon ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Jessica!!!!

    The Hot Chick is one heck of a funny movie!The main plot is this preppy girl and this scum bag man switch bodies, such as a Freaky Friday effect, and he causes lots of mayhem while she gets into a lot of humor along the way.It was a well cast movie and the comedy is great you will be laughing the whole movie!I love this movie and it is a favorite in my collection of movies.

    4-0 out of 5 stars I wasn't wearing your bra!
    I was merely holding it against myself.

    "The hottest chick in town just switched bodies with the luckiest loser in the world."

    An attractive and popular teenager who is mean spirited toward others, finds herself in the body of an older man, and must find a way to get back to her original body.With this story line, I went into this movie not expecting much, I surprised at how good this was.I can honestly say this is Rob Schneider's second best lead performance only behind Deuce Bigalow.

    Tom Brady (The Animal, writer on Home Improvement, writer and producer of The Critic) directs this film.When I first saw the preview and story line I thought to myself, "hasn't this been done before?Wasn't it bad when it was done before?Who would put up the money to pay for this type of film?"

    Someone did, and they were a genius.The Hot Chick may not have made a ton of money, heck it may have broke even, but it was a smart and fun comedy all at the same time.For anyone who liked "Freaky Friday," or "Mean Girls," this is along the same lines.The story was just as good in Hot Chick; however, this may have been a little funnier.

    The Hot Chick is a very smart comedy, watchable for kids of all ages, in my opinion.I think you should give this movie a chance, and not just go by the reviews that originally came out for this film.If you watch it with no bias going into the film, you will like it.Basically, go into this movie not expecting much, and you'll be happy is what I'm trying to say.Definitely a rent before buying film, not everyone will like Hot Chick, it is an Adam Sandler production after all.

    Grade: B+

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wickedly Funny movie!
    I must say that the acting in this movie was superb. Rob Schneider plays both roles rather well. The story line was also well crafted. Overall, this movie was funny from beginning to the end. Please don't eat popcorn while watching this movie, you just might choke yourself laughing. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Matt Groening's second season of the 31st century sci-fi sitcom Futurama maintained the high scripting standards of the first and also well brought improved digital animation. Couch potato Fry now seems thoroughly reconciled to his new existence, transported 10 centuries hence to "New New York" and working for Professor Farmsworth's delivery service. He's surrounded by a cast of freaks, including the bitchily cute Amy (with whom he has a romantic brush) and Hermes, the West Indian bureaucrat. Most sympathetic is the one-eyed Leela (voiced by Katey Segal). Like Lisa Simpson, she is brilliant but unappreciated; she finds solace in her pet Nibbler, a tiny creature with a voracious, carnivorous appetite. By contrast, Bender, the robot, is programmed with every human vice, a sort of metal Homer Simpson with a malevolent streak.

    In one of the best episodes, Bender is given a "feelings" chip in order to empathize with Leela after he flushes Nibbler down the toilet. Elsewhere, Fry falls in love with a mermaid when the team discover the lost city of Atlanta, Fry and Bender end up going to war after they join the army to get a discount on gum, and John Goodman guest stars as Santa Claus, an eight-foot gun-toting robot. Brimful with blink-and-you'll-miss-them hip jokes (such as the sign for the Taco Bellevue hospital) and political and pop satire, Futurama isn't a stern warning of things to come but rather, as the makers put it, "a brilliant, hilarious reflection of our own materially (ridiculously) overdeveloped but morally underdeveloped society." --David Stubbs ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Damn you Fox!
    I have a bone to pick with Fox as I'm sure other people do. What's with their cancellations? It's like they just can't get enough of them. If you watched the beginning of Family Guy's Season 4 premiere(which by the way was cancelled at one point too) you would've seen a loooong list of shows. They cancelled(sort of, I'll get to that) Futurama which is really too bad. This review covers season highlights.

    Season premiere(for this disc anyway) is I Second That Emotion which has Bender's emotional frequency tuned to Leela's which makes him quite depressed about flushing her pet, Nibbler.Zapp Brannigan is court-martialed and working for Planet Express in Brannigan Begin Again.

    Zoidberg tries to find love in Why Must I Be a Crustacean in Love where he and Fry have to battle to the death after Fry accidentally makes Zoidberg's love interest love him instead. The Deep South has the crew find the lost underwater city of Atlanta and Fry falling for a mermaid.

    The Problem with Popplers is about the latest food sensation: popplers, little chicken nugget-style food from a planet which are actually baby creatures. The first of what was supposed to be I bet a tradition similar to Simpsons Treehouse of Horror is Anthology of Interest I where the Professor invents a What-If machine, prompting the crew to ask what would happen if...

    War is the H-Word has Fry and Bender joining the Army and being set to a planet full of balls. Fry's cowardice makes him Kif's assistant and Bender becomes a tool for the Army. Contains probably the funniest newspaper headline I've seen.

    And in the "season finale" Cryonic Woman, Fry finds that his cheating girlfriend from 1999 froze herself and is now in the 31st century and being extremely weirded out. They decide to skip it and be frozen until year 4000 which is a post-apocalyptic warzone. Little do they know it's L.A.

    If you're curious about Futurama's "cancellation", it was never officially cancelled but put on a big long hiatus. Kind of like a bike you keep in the shed even though you could fix it up, you just leave it there. Same with the show. Fox can pick it up but since the creators all went to work on separate projects, it's best to call it cancelled which is too bad.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A hilarious animated series...
    A brainchild of Simpsons creator Matt Groening, Futurama launched itself into homes across the galaxy in Spring 1999. Employing the same quick wit and visual humor that has made The Simpsons one of the most successful shows in television history, Futurama (despite its early cancellation in August 2003) maintains its own loyal cult following...

    Set one thousand years in the future, Futurama follows the life of a modern day American pizza delivery boy named Fry who finds himself reanimated 1,000 years after being accidentally cryogenically frozen. Brought back to life, Fry hunts down his great, great, great nephew - a tinkering scientist named Professor Farnsworth - and spends his days working for his distant relative's intergalactic delivery service alongside good friends, Leela (a female Cyclops) and Bender (a morally-challenged robot). As the characters (usually Fry and Bender) engage in various schemes throughout the universe, Professor Farnsworth and his crew meet up with a number of interesting characters and civilizations...

    The Futurama (Season 2) DVD offers a number of hilarious episodes including "Brannigan Begin Again" in which Zapp Brannigan begins working for Planet Express. Convincing Fry and Bender to conspire against Leela, he's elected the ship's new captain, but is forced to put Leela back in charge when he can't handle the situation... Other notable episodes from Season 2 include "Xmas Story" in which Christmas involves the destructive exploits of an evil robot Santa Claus (John Goodman) who punishes all people and "Raging Bender" in which Bender joins a the Ultimate Robot Fighting League (URFL), learning that it's really fixed - just like a modern day form of "fighting" entertainment... Season 2 features a new and more complex proprietary alien language which can be found on various signs and billboards throughout the Futurama galaxy...

    Below is a list of episodes included on the Futurama (Season 2) DVD:

    Episode 14 (I Second That Emotion)
    Episode 15 (Brannigan Begin Again)
    Episode 16 (A Head in the Polls)

    The DVD Report

    4-0 out of 5 stars The Future Is Now!
    The Show:
    If you've never seen Futurama before, Season 2 is an excellent place to start; right in the middle of the chaos!
    The quality of the writing is excellent and rather consistent, unlike the radical highs and lows of Season 3. There aren't any clunkers here, and several high points (Anthology Of Interest 1, Cryonic Woman) make this the perfect buy for fans, and anyone who enjoys quality mainstream american entertainment that also asks its viewers to be moderately well read.

    The Video:
    Great picture quality, lavish user friendly menus. The colors are strong and gorgeous, but I did notice some interlacing problems. Nonetheless, This is all better than broadcast quality. Many times I was able to notice intricacies in the line-art I never noticed during the show's broadcast run.

    The Audio:
    Clear and loud. All the dialogue sounds great, free from hiss, as does music. The dvd case says it's in surround, but I didn't notice much directional audio. There are spanish and french tracks, which also are encoded in surround.

    The Special Features:
    Many episodes have deleted scenes, each of which average to about 7 seconds (in animation, every scene counts). There is also concept art. The main specialfeatures here are commentaries for all episodes. The commentaries include creator Matt Groening, executive producer David X. Cohen, and varying writers, directors, and voice actors, the most entertaining of which is John DiMaggio, voice of Bender.
    The commentaries contain an occasional gem of interesting information, but the crew is frequently unprepared to give commentary on their work, (e.g,. often admitting they don't remember much about the episode they're watching, stating what's already on the screen) to the point of making me question their real involvement with the show. They're funny cool guys, but they can't shake the stench of managerial-types trying to shed some insight (and take credit) on work that was mostly done by their employees.

    Packaging:
    Beautiful. A slipcase decorated with original artwork contains the 4 DVD's, each with its own slim case. Each slim case features an original cover, which is part of a mini-mural that's 4 cases wide (Not to be confused with 4 cases stacked). Neat.

    All in all:
    A very re-watchable series, Great video quality, some worthwhile features, and for around 30 bucks, a steal. What are you reading this for? The time for Futurama is now! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Set in the year 3000, Futurama is the acme of sci-fi animatedsitcom from Simpsons creator Matt Groening. While not as universallypopular as The Simpsons, Futurama is equally hip and hilarious,thanks to its zippy lateral-thinking contemporary pop cultural references,celebrity appearances (Pamela Anderson and Leonard Nimoy are among a number ofguest stars to appear as disembodied heads in jars), and Bender, a distinctlyHomer Simpson-esque robot. Part of Futurama's charm is that with decadesof sci-fi junk behind us, we've effectively been living with the distant futurefor years and can now have fun with it. Hence, the series stylishly jumblesmotifs ranging from Lost in Space-style kitsch to the grim dystopia ofBlade Runner. It also bridges the gap between the impossible dreams ofyour average science fiction fan and the slobbish reality of their comicreading, TV-watching existence. Groening himself distinguishes his two seriesthus: "The Simpsons is fictional. Futurama is real."

    The opening season (premiered in 1999) sees nerdy pizza delivery boy Frytransferred to the 31st century in a cryogenic mishap. There, he meets thebeautiful, one-eyed Leela (voiced by Married with Children's Katey Sagal)and the incorrigible alcoholic robot Bender. The three of them join Fry's great(great, great, etc.) nephew Professor Farnsworth and work in his intergalacticdelivery service. Hyper-real yet strangely recognizable situations ensue--Frydiscovers he's a billionaire thanks to 1,000 years' accrued interest, Leela mustfend off the attentions of Captain Kirk-like Lothario Zapp Brannigan, and Fryaccidentally drinks the ruler of a strange planet of liquid beings. --DavidStubbs ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great, superb!!!
    I love this show!!! It's equally as funny as Family Guy and almost as funny as the Simpsons. A must buy if you love those 2 shows. The features aren't the best, but they are good enough to polish off this set. Good commentary, but otherwise lame animtics and deleted (for good reason) scenes, and a so-so documentary, but the shows are worth the buy. Get it now!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This season and the second season are great.
    I have watched and owned every season of Futurama, except the 3rd season, and the first season I think is one of the best. The humor is new, and very funny. I like it much better than season 4, which was dry, stupid, and the humor made no sense, like they would make people saying, "Huh?" and that would be the joke. Get the first and second season, but borrow season 4. As for season 3, don't ask me.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly strong season
    Many of my favorite shows always tend to have a rough season because they have to establish their characters and all the relationships. Futurama, most likely due to the seasoned veterans who worked on Simpsons and this at the same time or did this after leaving Simpsons, ended up making a great show without the kind of mishaps first seasons tend to have.

    The series starts off with the pilot Space Pilot 3000 when 24 year old Fry is working a dead end job and has a cheating girlfriend. While on a prank pizza delivery to a cryogenics factory, he accidentally gets frozen 1000 years, waking up on New Years Eve 2999. From there he meets strange aquatic semi-doctor Dr. Zoidberg, his great great great.... nephew Professor Farnsworth and his crush, one-eyed Leela. The Professor runs a delivery service through space to help fund his research projects so Leela, Fry and amoral bending robot Bender become his crew.

    One thing you should know is that the series had many scheduling problems or pre-empts(thanks to Fox and their stupid football games), many episodes didn't even air during their original air-date or were only half-aired. So if you look at many first season guides, the 9th episode "Hell is Other Robots" is often regarded as the "finale" since it aired in May while next episode "Flight to Remember" was in November however on here the 13th episode "Fry and the Slurm Factory" is the finale.

    This first season had many memorable moments including the secret of Slurm, the crew's trip to a big garbage ball with some familiar cameos, Fry and Bender as roommates or the introduction of the most self-absorbed captain, Zapp Brannigan and his sidekick, alien Kif Kroker.

    Also, nicely done is the fact that all episodes have commentary with usually a big number of guests with series creator Matt Groening(also created Simpsons) and exec. producer David Cohen with a rotating staff of writers, directors and voice talent. None of that Family Guy 2 commmentaries-a-disc crap.

    There's highlight episodes and is a great place to start for what was a very hilarious series(stupid Fox and their cancelling).

    4-0 out of 5 stars Every cell phone company has problems...
    AT&T/Cingular:This poor phone is suffering from a rating that is based on some guy saying how he doesn't like AT&T. I've had issues with them too (even issues including identity theft that ended up costing me a lot of money), but I hear horror stories about all cell phone companies. One thing AT&T/Cingular does right is that they don't outsource their customer service (yet) so you can call and speak to someone who you can understand.

    Phone: I've been using a 3620 for a while and have had some mixed reactions. Most people really like it, until they get upset when you sneak pictures of them. Visually it's getting to be a bit dated, it is neither small nor sleak. Performance wise, this phone does very well with signal, and I find that I can make/receive calls where other people cannot. There is a problem I have had with the battery and a friend has had the same issue with the 3650. If you set it down somewhat hard or slide your hand wrote across the battery the phone will shut off. In 14 months this has happened to me all of about 6 times during a conversation, and probably 200 times in my pocket. It's annoying to be expecting a call and realize your phone has been off for a few hours.

    Recommendation: This is not a bad phone, but my recommendation is you click on the "motorola" section and get a RAZR V3 (they're only $99), they are very sleak, the camera image quality is better, more talk time, and most importantly, a firmly set battery. My brother has been using one for about 4 months and loves it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great and Powerfull Phone !!
    I was using the older version the Nokia 3650 with the round keypad when I moved into my new home .. I was receiving marginal service. A friend of mine walked in with the 3620 and was able to use the phone with full bars al lover the house !! .. I switched to the 3650 and BAM !! perfect signal everywhere !! Great phone .. !!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Nokia 3620 - Great Phone
    I bought this Nokia 3620 about a week ago.Now, I know you are thinking "Well, hasn't had enough time to really see how this phone is going to work," and you are right.I don't know if this phone will stand the test of time, but I do know a few things.

    1.This phone's camera is the best that I have seen.My mom just got a Samsung E316.She paid a lot more for her phone, and the picture isn't as good.

    2.The phone's big screen makes it easy to read.

    3.There are quite a few menu's, but each menu item has a picture, and a caption, so you are sure what each one is.All the menu's are easy to understand.If you are in the text messaging inbox you can see who wrote you the message in bold, and then a preview of the written message below.

    I will say though that not everything about this phone is great.The reception of course will vary from service to service.I can't personaly say anything about Amazon or AT&T because I bought my phone at the Suncom store, and they are who I use for service.I will say though that the speakerphone isn't all the great (people often times say they can't understand me), but when I have it on the handset they can hear me just fine.I will also say that this phone is very technical.It requires a lot of patience to learn how to work, but if you have the time, the experience will be rewarding.

    So when it comes down to it, buy this phone if you want a good quality phone, that takes good pictures, has good reception, but is difficult to use, and requires a lot of patience. ... Read more
