Space. It seems to go on and on forever.

At least it was funny! 

And is it just me, or does Al Gore get better and better every time he guest-stars with the F'rama crew?

Apparently he's also reprising his role in the upcoming new Futurama as the "Emperor of the Moon" again too.  :)

Not bad at all, I thought Gore did a pretty respectable job.  I have to say that it didn't really make me want to watch his film but fair play to the guy for not taking himself too seriously.  Nice to hear he'll in the the new Futurama too.
There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning....
And that, I think, was the handle - that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn't need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting - on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave....
So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark - that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.

Al Gore not taking himself seriously is becoming a rare event these days, so it's something that should be cherished when it happens. When he does it, he does it really well. I suspect he missed his calling when he became a politician. :)

The film ain't worth it. It's just a hollywood-budget powerpoint presentation when all's said and done, and the science is questionable to boot, from what I've been able to glean. But that's a debate for another time and another place... :)

Least the trailer's fun. ;D
