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 ;).
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.
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!
Season 1 is the one with 3 discs, and an "Owner's Manual". It is less than impressive, as it only gives a brief summary of a few major characters (Fry, Leela, Bender, Prof. Farnsworth, Hermes and Zoidberg) - I'm guessing they needed to fill space, because it's not very good, and looks to have been made and crammed in at the last minute. I was expecting a lot more than what was in it, I guess I was being too optimistic.
The boxset comes with all the special features the other boxsets come with, and it's basically the discs from the normal boxsets put into this one (not very impressive or original). The DVDs themselves are placed into a cardboard slip case, which has the list of episodes on one side, the usual DVD art on the other. The DVD box art is that of the DVD cases, and you can line each Season's discs up to make the "scene" they depict.
One thing I will say is that beware of the sticker that keeps all the seasons together - I thought it could come off (it can in retrospect), but it is very annoying, and peeling it off leaves all the sticky residue on the boxes, which you will then have to peel off.
Overall, it's a good product, but it needs a new refreshing look to really make people want this boxset.
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!

Unfortunately season 1 and 2 are interlaced and a lot of the special features are hidden in menus, which is quite annoying.Published 2 months ago by H. Doyle
Fantastic value but one of the disks was faulty/ a repeat, unfortunately we didn't realise for many months. Saying that, there are so many episodes that we didn't miss a few... Read morePublished 4 months ago by Hels
