Most people assume that the future will be better than the present. Not so in Futurama. Even a thousand years from now, politicians are still crooked, the Internet is still full of porn and people are just as stupid as they ever were. Maybe even slightly more so.
Futurama is Simpsons creator Matt Groening's second animated show, crashing together the worlds of Star Trek and Springfield in a fast-paced comedy that combines social satire, farce, movie spoofs and hot alien chicks. Loser delivery boy Fry is accidentally frozen on New Year's Eve 1999, getting thawed out a millennium later just in time to see in the year 3000 - in his new job as, you guessed it, a delivery boy. Hooking up with cyclops space captain Leela and surly robot Bender, as well as the other misfit employees of the Planet Express delivery service, Fry gets to experience all the malfunctioning wonders of the 31st Century.
At its best, Futurama is easily as funny as a top-whack episode of The Simpsons - hardly surprising, since many of its writers moved over from Groening's first show. The jokes come just as fast and are every bit as sharp, and each episode stands up to multiple viewings because of the sheer number of sight gags and hidden details tucked away in the background. The writers all appear to be huge science fiction fans as well - spotting every reference, from the obvious to the obscure, is an almost impossible task, but if you get them it's yet another layer of comedy to enjoy.
This boxset actually contains more than the 'official' first season of the show - the four episodes on disc three were held back until the show's second year. Their inclusion here is a definite bonus, bringing the total up to 13.

In my opinion, 'Futurama' is a clear cut front runner for being the best animated TV show ever. Shaking off the shadow of 'the Simpsons' is difficult, but if they have to be compared, 'Futurama' is certainly the more original, witty and imaginative of the two, with a stronger cast of characters and a more inventive context. And, for a pilot series, this is a pretty darn good collection, filled with sharp jokes and some surprisingly poignent moments. So be uncynical and just sit back and enjoy these fantastic adventures of feisty Leela, alcoholic Bender, immature Fry, accident-prone Amy and eccentric Professor Fransworth. Sci-fi and comedy doesn't come any better than this!

When I heard that Futurama season 1 would make it to DVD, I was over the moon! Season 1 is my favourate season out of the 3 seasons which have currently aired and it contains many classic episodes.
I think that Futurama is better than The Simpsons but only a little bit. I'm also very happy that it contains all 13 episodes rather than just the 9 which aired followed by a gap before the remaining episodes aired at the begining of season 2. Here is a list of the episodes included in this 3 disc set:
01) Space Pilot 3000
02) The Series Has Landed
03) I, Roommate
04) Love's Labour's Lost In Space
05) Fear Of A Bot Planet
06) A Fishful Of Dollars
07) My Three Suns
08) A Big Piece Of Garbage
09) Hell Is Other Robots
10) A Flight To Remember
11) Mars University
12) When Aliens Attack
13) Fry & The Slurm Factory
I can't wait for this DVD set to arrive, surely the best DVDs money can buy. I hope that subsequent seasons are also released just like The Simpsons, One Month to wait!

In light of the shabby treatment given to Futurama by the Fox network in the States (and by other networks in other countries as well), I was overjoyed to have the first season of this innovative program finally made available on DVD. I'm the first on my block with a set, and probably the only one in town with one, as it is not available yet here in the States. Go figure! But as Matt Groening says in an interview on one of the discs, if you love science fiction, you'll love this. And if you hate science fiction, you'll love this. One word of caution: Disney it ain't, with suicide booths, a malt liquor-swilling foul-mouthed robot, and some rather adult situations. If you like your toons with an attitude, then go for it! It's well worth the price, and the special features will provide hours of enjoyment.

As Matt Groening himself admits, first seasons of TV shows are particularly difficult, but when the show is set 1000 years in the future things are even trickier. This was the task set for the shows on these three DVDs. The shows meet the challenge admirably.
The pilot episode ('Space Pilot 3000') is the introduction of loveable loser delivery boy Fry, the suicidal alcoholic renegade bending robot Bender, the morally upstanding cycloptic alien Leela and Fry's 164 year old nephew Professor Farnsworth. The pacing of the first show is utterly superb and any budding comedy writers like myself will be extremely impressed by the sheer amount of plot that is stored in these 23 minutes.
The season continues at such a high pace, but the viewer is never left wondering what just happened. The other main appeal of Futurama is that it being set 1000 years in the future allow the writers the freedom to alter standard Sci-Fi plotlines. In particular, the episodes, 'Love's Labours Lost in Space' (the introduction of my favourite character, Zapp Brannigan), 'My Three Suns' and 'When Aliens Attack' give novel spins on old Sci-Fi ideas.
The amount of features is equally excellent. There is an insightful commentary to each episode, an animatic for the Pilot episode, and a couple of featurettes. The only criticism perhaps is the slightly clunky menu system.
It's well worth buying whether you're a Sci-Fi fan or not. Fans of good comedy would be well advised to buy this now.
