Futurama makes it through to another season
on 31 January 2012
First, I have to agree with everyone who mentioned the packaging. It's the shoddiest I've seen in a long while. It's a crummy cardboard sleeve that holds another cardboard insert with 2 discs protected by cheap plastic bagging. Fortunately, I put all my Futurama discs into a single Aluminium wallet, so they just went straight in before they were damaged.
Again, it's only region 1 at the moment. I have no idea how long you'll have to wait for a Region 2 version, but the price from the States isn't too bad, it's just the waiting a couple of weeks unless you find a UK supplier.
The actual show I felt was on top form again. I was a bit worried with the first episode about Clamps as there was a lot of beeping to cover swear words and I wasn't sure where this new series was going, I've seen too many funny shows resort to cheap smutty language when they run out of genuine jokes, but I needn't have worried, the beeping was just part of that particular episode, and the show remains consistently funny.
I won't go into each episode here, you can find detailed info for that elsewhere, I will just say, if you have followed the show to this point you'll be happy also with the latest batch of episodes. All are very re-watchable.
Re-house them though in a proper case!
