From Billy West himself (billywest.com), there will be 4 feature length straight to DVD Futurama movies made. No word on a release date but they start recording in July or August. It may not be a return to television, but I'll gladly take it!
I thought the b-plot was barely there for the first half, but then was the focus for the second. That was odd. Still, it did nothing for me, and like Big Bad said, seemed like a waste of Alyson Hannigan (and even Kristen Wiig).
