Futurama Season 6 Episode 15 – Benderama

One of the professor’s inventions is used for mischief by Bender – no surprises there – and he creates an army of miniature Benders that may destroy the world… By accident.

This episode of Futurama is a return to form. Millions of Benders of varying sizes? Yes please! The other Benders are just as lazy and bored as their creator and if they are not stopped, they will drain Earth’s resources dry. Not because they are evil, but because they are so damn many of them.

Bender is on fine form in this episode – all 100 billion of him – and Patton Oswalt has a great cameo as an unattractive giant. There are also some fantastic one liners from the living organisms in the show after all the water on Earth is turned into booze. This episode proves that the one that went before it – the premiere after the hiatus – was perhaps an episode that was in the can for a long time, waiting for the right time to be aired. Benderama is reminiscent of the Tales of Interest episode with the giant Bender, and even though this has been touched on before, it is still a joy to watch.

Welcome back, Futurama!
