Product Description

All the other galaxies will be green with envy. In the most epic Futurama ever, dark forces older than time itself are on the attack, hell-bent on stopping the dawn of a wondrous new green age. Don't you just hate it when that happens? Even more shockingly--Bender's in love with a married fembot and Leela's on the run from the law--Zapp Brannigan's law. Fry is the last hope of the universe, recruited for an ultra top secret mission. Could this be the end of the Planet Express crew forever? Say it ain't so, meatbag! Off we go, into the wild green yonder!

5.0 out of 5 stars were back baby!!!!! 1 Nov 2009
Format:DVD
'Futurama: The Specials' contains all 4 of the 'epics' that have been released since 'those assanine morons at B(f)ox' cancelled the show. The box set includes 'Benders Big Score', 'The Beast with a Billion Backs', 'Benders Game' and 'Into the Wild Green Yonder'. Each dvd comes with a huge amount of extras, (as is expected with Futurama) including commentaries on each, plus the usual stuff such as deleted scenes etc. They have even compiled the 'Futurama: Video Game' cut-scenes into a 'Lost Episode', which is nice. (It even has it's own commentary)
I must say that the quality of the 'epics' is far from the quality of the first 4 seasons, yet they're still very enjoyable, and I highly recommend this item to all futurama fans, not only because it's enjoyable but because it's a great bargain, the price here on amazon is almost the same as buying just one of the movies separately, but you get all 4!! Now I'm really looking forward to the new season 5 which is currently in the works.

In the words of Bender 'We're Back Baby!!!!'

5.0 out of 5 stars These are brilliant! 24 May 2010
By N Snow
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It was a bit annoying how the team at Futurama decided to release these feature length DVDs one by one over a year, but when you get them altogether in this collection it's like owning Season 5. The show is as whitty, snappy, satirical and hilarious as ever, full of intriguing plots, copious amounts of play-on-words and the usual array of awesome characters. Each 'film' is great in it's own way but I have given them each a rating and a short summary below:

1. "Bender's Big Score".
9/10. My favourite of all. I think that when I first watched it I found the overly complicated cross-time plot a little too much, but in actuality it is genius. Bender and the others get tricked into losing everything they own to a bunch of horrid nudist aliens hell-bent on scamming the entire world. Eventually they and some of the other inhabitants of earth have to defeat them . Of course, there is a hell of a lot more going on as each of the main chracters has their own hilarious part to play. Bender, Fry, The Professor and Zap Brannigan remain my favourite characters each with some fantastic moments.

2. "The Beast With a Billion Backs".
8/10. The first half is absolutely brilliant. Admittedly the second half is a bit weird even by Futurama's standards, but it still works overall. After failing to find happiness with his new girlfriend, Fry leaves the Universe via a tear in the space time continuum. Bender is also ready to abandon normal life as he joins a secret robot society and eventually declares war on all humans. However, Fry re-emerges, bringing with him a pretty creepy being whose tentacles end up penetrating every human on Earth in a bid to connect everyone. As I said, it's a really silly plot, but still very funny.

3. "Bender's Game".
7/10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Stuff 14 Jan 2010
Format:DVD
I won't comment on the actual movies themselves, you can look up the movies separate for that.

This is a VERY good deal, you literally get all four Futurama movies in the exact same boxes they would come in normally but slimline. All the packaging, special features and printed discs are identical and the only differences are the thickness of the cases, the fact that they come in a cardboard box as pictured and the fact that you are saving a lot of money!

Seriously though, this is the bargain of a lifetime and a must have for any futurama fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hit and miss 15 April 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a long time Futurama fan (ever since it aired on Sky 1 in 1999), I was looking forward to these specials. But then I watched Bender's Big Score and I didn't find it anywhere near as good as the original TV series. It played like an episode stretched out rather than a feature-length special, the jokes and visual gags were sparse as the creators concentrated too much on plot. I then lost interest and didn't buy the other DVDs until Amazon priced this box set at a throw-away price.

The other three specials were hit and miss, but they did live up to my expectations more. The Beast With a Billion Backs was good, Bender's Game was very good for the first half and awful for the D&D inspired second half, and Into The Wild Green Yonder was the best of the lot. That said, I enjoyed The Simpsons Movie more than any of these specials, which as I usually greatly prefer Futurama over The Simpsons, says something.

Bender's Big Score - 2.5/5
The Beast With a Billion Backs - 3.5/5
Bender's Game - 3/5
Into The Wild Green Yonder - 4/5

So overall, if you are a Futurama fan then you should buy this box set just so you have seen them, and if you don't think that sounds like a ringing endorsement, its because it isn't. Here's hoping Season 5 is better.

Update: good news everyone, season 5 is much better and it looks stunning on blu-ray too!

3.0 out of 5 stars Very hit-or-miss 31 Dec 2011
Format:DVD
When Futurama was cancelled back in 2003, I'm sure that I wasn't the only fan to get angry at Fox for doing what they always do, so when I heard that four feature-length episodes were being released over the course of a year or so around 2008, I got pretty excited. These four episodes - split into sixteen episodes for TV-viewing ease - all ran concurrently, beginning where the previous one ends, which gave Matt Groening the possibility to develop characters a lot more closely than they had otherwise been, and offering them up a chance to revive old feuds or relationships. What we were left with was a varying mish-mash of animation goodness (and not-so-goodness).

Due to the feature-length nature of these specials, I found that the humour that was usually crammed into one episode of Futurama had to be dispersed throughout a show four times as long, meaning that a fair few of the jokes just fell flat. There are moments of absolute hilarity, and my personal favourite special, Bender's Game, revolves around Bender becoming obsessed with Dungeons & Dragons so much so that he begins to play it in real life, which I found pretty original. Into The Wild Green Yonder is another decent feature, and Bender's Big Score has moments where it really shines. Although this is all just opinion, I personally found The Beast With A Billion Backs, the second out of the four features, to be a huge let-down, with only occasional pieces of anything original, and very little laughable content.

Overall, if you're a Futurama fan like myself, this is an essential piece of your collection, but for people who aren't avid viewers of the show or don't know it at all, this isn't the place to start. Season Five has just been released on DVD/Blu-Ray and I'd heartily recommend it over this; it packs a much more potent dose of comedy than this does, and it's split up into 22 minute episodes (the way it's supposed to be), not 90 minute movies that feel a bit too thin to stand on their own.
