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 ;).

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 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.

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 One over on the simpsons 23 Jan 2005
Format:DVD
A box set? Are you mad? Well, if there is any box set that you should but make it this one. Not least because there are no plans to make an extension to the collection. Futurama was deemed unpopular in the USA - the reasons for which must be partly the same as those that make it so funny and poignant to those people who watch it from the UK.
Okay, so the Simpsons holds its cult followers, being able to cross cultures and even language. But Futurama appeals to both those people who just want 'stupid' humour and those who want some intellect slipped in with it.
Each character could have a book written about them and you find out much more about these individuals in a short space of time than you could hope for in the Simpsons, in fact I believe them to be far deeper and that probably serves to deepen their appeal.
Its got comedy moments for all the family, I have sat down with a three year old and watched an entire series back to back. But ive also sat at work with a dude, who would hate me referring to him as 'old' right now, quoting phrases and laughing in bursts at favourite sketches and memories of each series.
Its also one of those rare specimens that actually has the ability to thrown in a few new bits each time you watch it.
My favourite? When they are superheroes and running about to their theme song. You will see!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love The Simpsons? Adore Futurama! 9 Nov 2007
By Mr. Tristan Martin VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Futurama is Matt Groening's superb follow-up to The Simpsons, a cartoon that reinvented the genre. Futurama follows the very silly exploits of Fry, an intergalactic delivery boy and his human, alien, robot and other assorted weirdo friends, as they deliver subpoenas (to Sicily 8 - the mob planet), jump dimensions, get beaten at atomic-mutant basketball, blow up planets, have snoo-snoo, start wars, meet Al Gore and have problems tuning the television in in their new apartment.

On first glance, this series bears striking similarities to its predecessor. The animation is of the same simple yet effective style (only with more 3D modelling) and the humour is in the same vein of ironic, post-modern tomfoolery. As far as this highly opinionated reviewer is concerned, none of that is a drawback. On second glance, first opinions are reinforced. Futurama has the same high standard of sophisticated and low-brow humour; (numerous) references to Richard Nixon and the dense symbolism of Melville's Moby Dick sit alongside Fantastic Voyage journeys up a main character's arse.

Perhaps a major difference, that might have no importance overall, is that whereas The Simpsons is populated by either children or adults, Futurama mostly focuses on those in between those age groups. Standout characters include Zapp Brannigan, a Shatnerian, pompous buffoon, who sees himself as an intergalactic alien-killing, velour-adoring, love-making machine ("Have the boy fetch me my shorts!" "The `boy' sir?" "You. You fetch my shorts!") and Calculon, a thespian-bot whose overly dramatic pronouncements are distinctly at odds with his career in the robot soap opera `All My Circuits.'

"Who's that guy?" "Him? Token human character?" "Yeah! What's he do?
