5.0 out of 5 stars Good news, everyone! This is a wonderful box. 3 Nov 2004
Format:DVD
I'm not going to write about Futurama itself, since it has been written much about it in previous reviews (if you still want to know more, visit [...] I'd like to comment on this release: complete box of 4 seasons (72 episodes).
The package is fine. It includes 15 DVDs divided into four separate boxes (= four seasons). Each DVD has its own plastic box. On each DVD there are several special features (extras) like audio commentary by the creators, deleted scenes or so called animatics (working versions of some episodes). I guess the DVDs are pretty much the same as in releases of single seasons. So if you already own all the seasons, it would be probably useless to buy this box, because you won't get anything new (except for the fine box itself, of course ;)). But if you don't have single seasons, then this box is really worth buying. I must add, that the price on Amazon is more than friendly ;).

5.0 out of 5 stars The Future of Entertainment 1 Sep 2004
Format:DVD
Futurama is the child of simpsons creator Matt Groening and I beleive it to be his refined, more adult and better offspring.
The simpsons is one of the best cartoons and entertainment programs there is but Futurama just makes me laugh more. the characters are always great, the stories inspired and if you like sci fi this takes everything you know and love and makes it funny. Even if you just like simple comedy you have to love something where the robots of the future run on alcohol.
This box set has all the episodes of the entire series that has sadly come to an end.
In the far far future alien archeologists will dig up this set from our long dead civilisation and wet themselves luaghing.
P.S Amazon is also selling this cheaper than anywhere else I know.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent (except for commentary) 17 Jun 2010
Format:DVD
This box set is a real gem for Futurama fans. The quality is excellent, and there is an appropriate stack of bonus material.

The only shame is that it is very evident that Matt&co tired of making commentaries after doing only a handful of episodes. The first couple of tracks are funny and informative, but that quickly fades (I wonder if they did them all in one go?). They end up talking about totally unrelated matters and even make fun of the whole concept of commentaries -- at that point, it would have been better to just not include any. I haven't bothered to check the commentary tracks on the last couple of discs...

5.0 out of 5 stars best ever! 24 Nov 2004
Format:DVD
ok first of all i love the simpsons, but for me futurama is so much better. Anyone who is into sci fi or has a sarcastic or creul sense of humour MUST own this dvd there is no negotiation! The needless use of bad language and violence is right up there with fawlty towers for timing, there are hundreds of references to star trek, star wars, space odessy and all the big films and series, the fact that they only made 4 series is the only downfall, but its so easy to watch over and over again.
the extras are handy, some great deleted scenes but its the commentaries that are the best, quite often members of the cast saying silly things in character and some gems of behind the scenes stories!
BUY IT!

A truly superb comedy series with a myriad of fantastic characters and stories. However don't expect to watch them in the near future as Amazon won't deliver for months. I ordered the 1-4 box set on Jan 13th and my (third) estimated delivery date is now March 7th - 21st. I look forwards to watching it after I've been cryogenically frozen for some considerable time........

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST PROGRAMME EVER 11 Jun 2007
Format:DVD
Futurama is without a doubt the best programme ever to grace our humble televisions. There's so much more here than meets the eye. Yes, it is incredibly funny in almost every sense of the word, but it's so much more as well. I have never witnessed such heart in a 1/2 hour programme before, there are a few episodes where I swear if you're not welling up by the end them there is something deeply emotionally wrong with you.

The characters are absolutely fantastic as well, sure everyone knows Bender is the king of cool, Fry is a lovable idiot with a heart of gold and Leela manages to be one of the strongest female characters you'll ever come across as well as being incredibly sexy, which is mildly disturbing as she is a 2d cyclops after all. Some of the real strengths of this programme are the supposrting characters as well, Zap Brannigan is hysterical. His complete lack of any kind of sense plays well with his position as Commander of Earths armed forces and he has some phrases that make George Bush look like T.S Elliot. Zoidberg, well he's a bit of a lost cause really, but he means well and is pssibly one of the shows most lovable characters. There are others of course but I could go on forever.

I'm not kidding when I say Futurama really sets the bar for television, if you don't have it already then maybe it's time to rethink your life.

Also, new episodes should, apparantly, be winging our way to us by the end of the year so make sure you're all caught up so you can take part in the worldwide jump for joy we all experience the first few "bongs" from the themetune, for a new year, a new you, a new lease on life! Sorry I'm getting carried away here, I just love it so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short and very sweet 3 Mar 2007
By S. Moss
Format:DVD
There is much debate over whether futurama is better than the Simpsons and in my opinion it generally is, especially the later seasons of the simpsons where the plot line seems to be wearing thin. Futurama is not only a comedy, it is also very emotional, and at times sad. The story arcs are well thoughout and the Mat groenings year 3000 is absolutely packed with creativity. Billy West makes a charming Fry, who's heart is in the right place, even if his brain isn't quite with Leela, the one eyed object of his desires. Marcus Felix plays Bender, who is absolute class.

The show does seem to better it self as it progresses, Bender the robot isn't as funny in the first season as he is in the final few. It's a sort of Dan Castanaletta situation. His voice is much more developed and funnier late in the seasons than it was to begin with. The last two seasons were by far the best, funniest and emotionally deep cartoon I have ever seen. Shame they axed it.
