This show is one of the best shows ever created.
Thomas J. Newcome
This episode is reason enough to pick this season set up alone, especially if you are a Star Trek fan.

Thankfully, they've gotten these DVD sets out more quickly than the Simpsons.

Very little on television could match Futurama. At it's height (seasons 4-8) the Simpsons squeaked a narrow lead in the laughs-per-minute category, but it was also allowed a better chance to grow and mature than Futurama did.
Futurama, quite obviously, takes place in the future. And while it has sci-fi themes and many references to "classic" sci-fi, it's more a show about the pop culture of our time. Pop culture references are mostly endless, and always very, very sharp. One needn't appreciate science fiction in order to adore this show.
This season gives us the following:
- Kif Gets Knocked Up a Notch - Not one of the best episodes, but still quite humorous. As the name implies, Kif finds himself pregnant. 6/10
- Leela's Homeworld - Slightly better than the previous episode, this explores Leela's past, and how she came to the orphanage. 7/10
- Love and Rocket - A Bender episode, and a high quality one. Bender woos the new AI in the Planet Expresship. We all know how serious Bender is about commitment, and you can see disaster coming lightyears away. 8/10
- Less Than Hero - Fry and Leela manage to aquire superpowers and fight evil with Bender, who forces himself in the group. Largely a parody of 60s superhero shows, this is another quality episode. 7.5/10
- A Taste of Freedom - An episode with deeper meaning, and an episode centered on Zoidberg, leading to an episode low on laughs. 4/10.
-Bender Should Not Be Allowed on TV - Bender finally makes it onto All My Circuits. Biting commentary on the impact of television on children. 8/10
- Jurassic Bark - Fry delves into his past and manages to find his dog. His petrified dog. Hilarity certainly ensues, 9/10.

I have never laughed so hard as I have at the Planet Express crew. Matt Groening pokes fun at everything imagineable and it all adds up to absolute hilarity!

You've got a displaced human, a one-eyed alien love interest, a homicidal robot, a scientist boss with a love of sending his crew on hopeless missions... and, of course, I can't leave out Kif, the straight guy to Zapp Brannigan (an even more arrogant send-up of Captain Kirk). In other words, great characters with equally funny storylines. The writing is absolutely brilliant and never underestimates the audience's intelligence.

You just can't go wrong with this set. I have pared down my DVD collection, but couldn't bring myself to part with ANY volume of Futurama. In my opinion, it outshines The Simpsons by far. So do yourself a favor... order all four volumes and sit back and enjoy!

Futurama is a really cool and funny show and any one that's a fan of almost any Fox cartoon show will like this. There are a few Easter eggs (secrets) in this DVD set. I don't know what they are yet but I'll have to buy it to find out.

The end of Futurama. :( I don't see how people can badmouth this show. it was great. Unfortunatly it was NEVER given a chance. I can't say how many times I tried to turn this show on and the beginning of the show was cut oof due to football or other sports shows. I am a Simpson fan from season 1 and by the time Futurama came on I acually liked it better than the Simpsons. I still watch them but they are getting more and more off course and just coming up with stupid plots. Futurara However stayed freh. with the show based in space it was left lot more open to plots. Buy this DVD!!!!!

Futurama is one of THE best cartoons ever. It's hilarious, very clean and cool looking, with tons of memorable characters. For some reason FOX likes to put alot of crap on the air that sucks and then take the good shows that are actually worth watching and move them all around the schedule so that no one can find them. I used to watch this show when it first debuted then after that i never knew when it was on. They did the same exact thing to Family Guy, but unlike Family Guy, Futurama didn't get picked up again. It's airing on adult swim on Cartoon Network right now. And now that i actually know what time the show is on i watch it everytime. I can't believe how funny it is!! Fox is stupid they need to pick this show back up!!! But until then, we'll always have the DVD's.
