Creature Comforts: Merry Christmas Everybody!, a review by Danae Cassandra
Creature Comforts: Merry Christmas Everybody!
Year of Release: 2004
Directed By: Richard Goleszowski
Starring: the voices of the great British public
Genre: Comedy, Animation, Television
How do hamsters cope with indigestion? Why do dogs hate wearing Christmas hats? What happens when a partridge is chased out of its pear tree, and why do dogs find Christmas unbearably emotional? Join in the festive fun with our furry friends.
This is a short Christmas special from the show Creature Comforts, and it's the only episode of the show I've seen. This is the third year I've watched this little special, though, so I should probably check out the rest of the show at some point. I'd recommend it if you like British humor, because I find it really funny, but it is very British.

My PILOT Marathon, a review by Rich
Futurama - Season 1
Space Pilot 3000
This collection presents the entire first season of Matt Groening's Futurama in all of its absurd, sci-fi glory. After accidentally freezing himself in 1999, pizza delivery boy Fry (voiced by Billy West) wakes up in New York City at the beginning of the 31st century. There he meets the fiesty, one-eyed Leela (voiced by Katey Sagal), the beer-swilling robot Bender (voiced by John Di Maggio), and other strange characters. Together they embark on ridiculous journeys as part of a interplanetary delivery service.
Never going to be a favourite show of mine, but my son is a big fan and probably the target audience in terms of age etc.
Personally I am glad to have now seen the original episode which explains the whole concept, how Fry got there, how he met up with the other characters. It helps make sense of the few random episodes I've seen over the years.
There are a few laughs to be had, but to be honest I was glad this finished so quickly.
