The Planet Express crew flies again! On no less authority than David Cohen (via Billy West), Futurama is returning to a primitive TV screen near you - in the form of not one, not three, but four feature-length direct-to-DVD movies, following the model trailblazed by Family Guy last year.
Of course if TV networks knew what was good for them, Futurama would be resurrected as a series and given the chance it was denied in the show's jumbled, widely-spaced and dismally scheduled original seasons. But I guess consistently high-rating reruns and smoking DVD sales didn't click for the studio that knows how to pick winners and drown them.
Memo to Fox: 'Bite my Shiny Metal Ass!'
