The Most Underated Televison Show of All Time!,
This review is from: Futurama - Season 3 [DVD] (DVD)
Futurama launched with season one, got off to a quick pace with season two and with season three breaks off into an intergaltic speed!
Season three is by far the most stuuning,wittiest,bizarre and laugh your pants off season of Futurama to be realeased on DVD yet! Like its bigger brother The Simpsons, Futurama awards the eagle eyed viewer with hillarious jokes that only the quick will spot. The Factorthat makes Futurama as funny as The Simpsons an at times even funnier (can i say that?) is the that since Futurama is set in the future the makers of the show can get away with alot more far fetched ideas. For instance: In the episode "Thats Lobstertainment!" you will find the DNA of Jack Nicholson reconstituted with the body of a gorilla! I laughed for hours! The show is a Science Fiction fans dream with many of the shows jokes having a dig at SCI-FI movies and shows.
Major episode highlights of this boxset are:
"The Luck Of The Fryish": Who said animation couldnt be upsetting? This episode is so moving! Look out for Noticeably F.A.T (an excellent character!).
"Time Keeps on Slipping": The Globetrotters challenge Earth to a Basketball game with nothing but shame at stake! Cue atomic super babies, uncontrollable time jumps, More bad luck for Fry and Sweet Clyde!
"Roswell That Ends Well": The Planet Express Crew travel back in time to Roswell! Zoidberg is probed!, The Professor wears the swankiest outfit known to man! and Fry becomes his own.........watch it and see!
"Godfellas": A very philisophical episode. Who'd have thought it!
"Amazon Women in The Mood": Zapp Brannigan and Kiff on a planet full of women! Worth the price just to see the scene where Zapp is doing kareoke!
I say these are the highlights but these are just my personal favourites. Every episode is of a high quality that you come to expect from Matt Groening.
Okay.........Extras! Pretty cool. Every episode has audio commentary from the cast and crew which is quite amusing itself as they talk you through how they make the episodes. Also on each disc are deleted scenes which never made the final cut. You can only see them here! Also the menus are nicely animated and always a pleasure to watch.
Overall this is an outstanding collection that i would recommend to anyone. Especially fans of The Simpsons and Science Fiction. Buy this DVD now Futurama will go down in History as the most underated cult classic of all time! Crack open a Slurm and enjoy!
