Back to the Futurama

Latest episode


Viva Mars Vegas

Everybody put on your heisting caps, because we're going on a heist! The crew needs to steal 8 million dollars and a mysterious box from the robot mafia's casino. We promise this will be an exciting heist and not one of those BORING heists.

Obviously, Ben and Mike are busy heisting, too, and they're going to heist the coolest thing to steal ever: ooze. Come with us ont his journey in Ooze Heist: Heist the Ooze.

Ben puts $20 on 5. Mike makes demands of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

31st Century Fox

The crew's new uniforms are ruined! But Bender doesn't care; he just takes up an exciting new hobby of hunting and brutally murdering foxes. THIS WILL BE FINE. The crew attempts to thwart his new hobby, anyway.

Meanwhile, we talk about, uh... strip clubs? And also we talk about how to design amazing uniforms for when you're not stripping.

Ben makes a last minute alteration. Mike watches a movie.

Near-Death Wish

The professor's parents come back. As you might expect, they are extremely old. Also, the professor hates them for some reason, so we'll all have to dig into that.

We also say some jazz about podcast awards and Greg the Bunny. Do you remember that show? Seth Green, please tweet @backtofuturama and let's start a Greg the Bunny podcast. Billy Crystal may or may not be involved. We maybe drag J.K. Rowling a bit?

Ben is four times faster than USB-C. Mike gets retconned.

Free Will Hunting

Let's Go Down the Wasp Road

Robots are just a jumbled pile of programming that do whatever the heck their programming tells them to. That include Bender, the lovable rascal! But what if Bender wanted to get free will? That's what we explore in this episode that is definitely not talking about Good Will Hunting. That's a different thing.

Ben starts an improv school. Mike goes into debt.

Fun on a Bun

It's July! And that means it's time for our nations favorite holiday, waiting for three months and then going to Germany for a respectful Oktoberfest!

Bender gets involved in a sausage competition! Fry gets involved in Neanderthal society! Ben gets involved in saying "penis" an awful lot. We were talking about sausages, it was bound to happen.

Ben gives a German lesson. Mike is a dedicated member of the Ska scene.

The Six Million Dollar Mon

Let's face it, we would all love to get some cool robotic upgrades, whether it be a chest harpoon or an extendo-arm or even a Cylon-dong. But if you actually had the back-alley surgeon to do it, would you? Hermes does and he has to deal with the consequences.

We, meanwhile, go on quite a thing about how everybody is trying to be Game of Thrones, including Futurama. And that of course goes into a whole thing about Sean Bean. Why wouldn't it?

Ben does the mash. Mike notes it was a graveyard smash.

The Butterjunk Effect

If a murderfly flaps its wings on the Moon, does a hurricane hit the Earth? No, it really just pummels Amy and Leela a lot. This sentence I just typed makes perfect sense. Also there are drugs involved. Don't do drugs. Or do. We're not your parents.

Ben also gloats a lot about being Ben. Did you know he's Ben and he has done a lot of stuff in his life? He will tell you about it. He also has a not at all crazy theory about Al Gore time traveling.

Ben writes a book. Mike gets surprised by Y.

Zapp Dingbat

What happens when your mom starts dating your ex? Also, it wasn't your ex, it was just some dude you had sex with a few times? And also, they end up getting engaged? Well, if you can't imagine what you'd do, let's take a look at what Leela does.

Meanwhile, Fry and Bender surf in the sewers with Leela's dad. Cowabunga, dude!

We also talk about what the best sewers to surf in would be, and Detective Pikachu (again) and expectations for the new Sonic movie (or Sanic movie?), and we spend way too much time talking about The Borax Kid. We also come up with a plan that is definitely not a scam.

Ben uses the word "scam." Mike makes a statement to the jury.

The Thief of Baghead

Bender gets a new job getting pictures of Spider-Man... I mean, celebrities. And it brings him on an ultimate quest to get the un-photographable photograph and kills a few friends in the process.

Meanwhile at Back to the Futurama studios, we're talking about the World Acting Competition. We get sued by Meat Loaf... maybe again? It's possible we've done that bit once before.

Ben makes a vampire callback. Mike demands pictures of Spider-Man.

Decision 3012

Election season already? But the problem is all the candidates are the same collection of sound bites. But what if... what if there was a great candidate who was definitely probably born on Earth and also maybe from the future? Would you vote for him or would you vote for Nixon?

Meanwhile, we talk about space vampires and sexy ghosts. And if that doesn't get you to listen then I don't know how to sell you this podcast any better.

Ben waits 5 and a half minutes for a hot dog. Mike drags Andrew Jackson.
