Bender from Futurama

He is, per his own testimony, prejudiced against non-robots, often expressing an urge to "kill all humans" but we survived an interview with Bender from Futurama.

Talk us through the typical Christmas Day at Bender’s place?

Where I’m from, it’s called Xmas, and we usually spend the whole day hiding from Robot Santa who malfunctioned some time ago and now deems everyone on Earth “naughty” and goes around putting grenades in our stockings and dynamite down our chimneys. If we survive, we might drink egg nog. The best Xmas ever was the one where my roommate Fry sold his hair to buy me a chain for my pocket watch and, in return, I just laughed at him.

Who’s going to win big at the Oscars?

I don’t see a lot of movies, except the ones that I download illegally and most of them are robot porn. If you want my best guess, the big winners at the Oscars will likely be human actors and George Clooney.

Can you give us some sport tips that we can bet on, Sports Almanac from Back To the Future style.

You see, what you pasties don’t understand... (“pasties” is what we call you people in the past; also meat pies). You see, what you pasties don’t understand is that wagering on sporting events with future knowledge changes the odds and the outcome. Plus it makes your money smell like a wet dog. No one knows why.

Which UK Soccer team do you support?

The one that wins whatever game I’m betting on. (I don’t mind the smell of wet dog money.)

When is mankind’s first contact with aliens and how does it go down?

I never studied ancient history but, according to my random word generator, mankind’s first contact with aliens was on a lonely river boat in the moonlit Sahara at a Sunday poker brunch. And it went down goose.

Have you ever been to Britain?

Oh yes. Many many times. Wait; Britain that's the room in my apartment with the medicine cabinet, right?

Not quite. What are your 5 favourite ever robots?

In descending order, Bender, Bender, Bender, Bender, and a tie between that blonde on Battlestar Galactica and me, Bender.

Finally, what can we expect from the Futurama Season 5 DVD?

You can expect a bunch of hilarious new episodes, a few deleted scenes, some extra behind-the-scenes goodies, and a lot of legal mumbo-jumbo about copyright law. But, most of all, expect no refunds.

Futurama Season 5 is out on DVD & Blu-ray on December 26
