In Futurama's latest and most tentacle-packed epic, space itself rips open, revealing a gateway to another universe. But what lies beyond? Horror? Love? Or maybe both, if it happens to contain a repulsive, planet-sized monster with romantic intentions! Nothing less than the fate of human and robot-kind is at stake as the Futurama crew takes on....The Beast with a Billion Backs.
Doesn't quite work as a feature.
- Futurama: The Beast with a Billion Backs review by CP Customer
I'm a big fan of Futurama, the previous four seasons before FOX cancelled the show were in my mind every bit as good as the Simpsons. While it's superb to have Futurama back, as a 85 minute single story feature length episode it doesn't quite work and lacks the pace and spark of the regular 22 minute shows. Of the four new feature length specials 'Beast with a billion backs' is easily the best of the bunch.
