Featured.png Bender's Big Score appeared on the Infosphere's Main Page as the featured article for March, 2008. This article (or a previous version of it) has been identified as one of the best produced by the Infosphere community. If you can update or improve it, please do.

I looked on IMDB and noticed a American release date on it for the 4 December 2007 I think it should go into the article and maybe on the news section. Also is the main page being changed soon. - Humorbot 0.4 Planet Express Logo.png 07:18, 7 July 2007 (PDT)

IMDB cannot be trusted, usual users can edit it. And it isn't as checked as Wikipedia is. However, Wikipedia claims the same. wikipedia:Futurama: Bender's Big Score. --SvipTalk 07:56, 7 July 2007 (PDT)

References[edit]

Yes yes, it is a bit messed up, but when buddy gets his grip together, and adds the extensions I suggested at the Conference Table, then all will be well. --SvipTalk 11:58, 8 July 2007 (PDT)

Two Release Dates!?![edit]

There were two release dates on this page, one wasn't deleted, the one saying "the movie is set for a november something release". We already know, so that got deleted. User: Relorelo84

Trivia/Miscellany section[edit]

Personally, I think the miscellany of this article will be so big, that I propose creating an article for it (Miscellany of Bender's Big Score), there is no need to make these articles too long. While, nothing has been written for this section yet, when you watch the film, you will realise how much issues we need to debate in a miscellany section. --SvipTalk 04:08, 24 November 2007 (PST)

Prerequisites?[edit]

I watched this movie with my step-dad, and halfway through, he stopped. He didn't get it. Too many in-jokes and references to previous episodes. So, I was wondering if we might add a section to the movie (and perhaps other episodes) called "Prerequisites" that list episodes that would be wise to have watched before watching the current one. For example, "Where the Buggalo Roam" might have "A Flight to Remember" as a prerequisite, since that's when Amy and Kif meet. And "AFtR" (in fact, any episode with Zapp) would probably have "Love's Labours Lost in Space". Thoughts? --Buddy 16:31, 10 January 2008 (PST)

Hm... possibly a part of my suggested "continuity" section. Like a subsection. But I also wanted to discuss "sequels" within episodes. Cause Amazon Woman in the Mood seems like a natural sequel to A Flight to Remember. I was thinking might to add that to the navigation on the top... or something like that. --SvipTalk 17:10, 10 January 2008 (PST)
Sounds good, I prefer "Continuity" as the title, perhaps with "Previously on Futurama" and "Later on Futurama". Though that may sound too much like a commercial. - Quolnok 18:15, 10 January 2008 (PST)
"Suggested Prior Viewing"? Any old title will do, really. And I was also recently thinking that there could be required and suggested levels. The suggested ones will help, but aren't necessary to understand the story, that sort of thing. --Buddy 10:51, 13 January 2008 (PST)
And we could make some small images indicating that.  :} And use templates to for that; {{required episode}} or {{suggested episode}}. Actually, I had no point in that, I just wanted to try writing it like that. Hah. Seriously though, you are not getting this body back. I think I will go make an attempt about this on Where the Buggalo Roam. --SvipTalk 10:59, 13 January 2008 (PST)
I totally did it! And I also allowed for people to add a reasoning. See The Why of Fry#Prerequisites for my first setup of this. I have made 3 types of episodes; required episodes are episodes that is required to understand the current episode, suggested episodes are episodes that is suggested to understand minor parts of the episode and then there are follow up episodes, which are episodes that continues something in this episode in some fashion. --SvipTalk 15:34, 29 February 2008 (PST)
Looks pretty good. I've put one of those onto AoI1 so we have the third kind in use. - Quolnok 19:19, 29 February 2008 (PST)

Act breaks?[edit]

Could someone with the DVD add in the act breaks? I won't have this 'til March and it's currently in the top two nominations. - Quolnok 18:24, 14 January 2008 (PST)

Would that I could. I could take notes later. I assume you want to know where they occur within the story, rather than just the timecode, right? Heh, timecode. Anyway, the DVD is also conveniently split into four sets of three chapters (total of twelve), so we could probably use this to accurately predict where the episodes will split as well. I'll do that if someone else doesn't get to it first. --Buddy 11:54, 17 January 2008 (PST)

Sales/revenue[edit]

If anyone knows of a reliable place to get that sort of thing, it might be relevant to incorporate that into this article. Lbgrowl 10:09, 9 March 2008 (PDT)

I am not sure they have released any such information as of yet. I think we need to wait for a press release on its revenues. It is likely to be part of a larger summary released by FOX later this year. --SvipTalk 15:45, 9 March 2008 (PDT)
