5.0 out of 5 stars Season 3 - the only complete one., 25 April 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Futurama - Season 3 [DVD] (DVD)
Out of the 4 production runs Futurama had (stretched to 5+ seasons on TV), Season 3 is the only one with a complete set of 22 episodes.
Quality of the episodes is a bit mixed. You get "stinkers" (by Futurama standards - still being great entertainment) like "That's Lobstertainment!", "A Leela of Her Own" and "A Pharaoh To Remember" but you also get a great share of real gems: The Emmy nominated "Amazon Women In The Mood", "Parasites Lost", "The Luck of the Fryrish", Emmy winner and Annie directing winner "Roswell that Ends Well" and WGA winner "Godfellas" to name a few.
As for the extras: Full length commentaries for the episodes (an extra one for "Roswell"), an Animatic of "Anthology of Interest 2" (early animated drawing version), more than 15 minutes of deleted scenes and then some. I've interviewed WGA winner Ken Keeler ("Godfellas") before and it was fun to get to know some of the backgrounds. The commentaries are a great surrogate to get that yourself.
Full episode list:
DVD 1:
* Amazon Women in the Mood
* Parasites Lost
* A Tale of Two Santas
* The Luck of the Fryrish
* The Bird-bot of Ice-catraz
* Bendless Love
DVD 2:
* The Day the Earth Stood Stupid
* That's Lobstertainment!
* The Cyber House Rules
* Where the Buggalo Roam
* Insane in the Mainframe
DVD 3:
* The Route Of All Evil
* Bendin' In The Wind
* Time keeps on slippin'
* I Dated A Robot
* A Leela of Her Own
* A Pharaoh To Remember
DVD 4:
* Anthology of Interest II
* Roswell that Ends Well
* Godfellas
* Futurestock
* 30 % Iron Chef
Futurama fans will have to buy it anyway, but I also suggest others to have a look at it. The show might be cancelled, but the quality of entertainment it induces is still great.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST for fans of Groening, 20 Sept. 2002
This review is from: Futurama - Season 2 [DVD] (DVD)
This is THE merchandise event for Futurama fans in 2002.
The episodes in this set originally aired from November 21th 1999 to December 3rd 2000 on FOX in the USA. With 19 episodes, it was the first full season for the show. Many fans currently see this season as plainly the best. Gems include "Xmas Story" in which SantaBot comes to town to see who was naughty, "The Problem with Popplers" with a weird twist and "Anthology of Interest I" where the authors show us three "what if?" stories - the equivalent to the treehouse of horror episode of The Simpsons.
The extras on the discs are rich, too. We get full episode length commentaries by the authors and voices for each and every episode, promotional clips, cut scenes that didn't make it into the TV version and then even more!
Let me add that I'm happily surprised by the low price on amazon with this release. Usually I buy from brick and mortar stores, but this they just can't beat.
