5.0 out of 5 stars A Fond Farewell December 10, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
It's tragic that this may indeed be the final season of Futurama, yet I can't help but smile when I think back on all the years of enjoyment this series has given me. This was a great season that had some fantastic episodes, including the unforgettable finale, which was every bit as touching and soulful as I was hoping. Along the way we saw Bender realize his dream of becoming a folk singer, Zoidberg found love, the Planet Express crew learned to work together, and Fry and Leela finally found what they were looking for together. You can't ask for more than that.

The packaging and special features are typical of what you would expect at this point. Those who were hoping for a regular plastic case will still have to suffer through the same cardboard packaging that we've been getting for the past few years, which is unfortunate but at this point it's unavoidable. The commentaries are top notch as always, finding the perfect balance between humor and insight. I hope Futurama can come back in some form but if this is truly the end then it's a bittersweet and wonderful one. Definitely add this to your collection and raise a can of Slurm to finest delivery crew this side of Mars.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Fans Will Miss Futurama!!! November 13, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Futurama was probably the most loved show by geeks everywhere. Volume 8 has some memorable episodes that will crack you up. There is always commentary and cut scenes to look forward to. It also has delete scenes, bonus animator commentary, and an in depth three-part exploration of the animation process, and inside Futurama: The Writers' Room of Tomorrow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five star show. October 22, 2013
By Seech
Format:Blu-ray
Great show. It is the last show that deserves cancellation, in my opinion. I really hope that somehow a way will be found to bring the show back to life in the nearest future. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hypnotoad approves of this review. December 9, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
No Futurama fan's collection could be complete without this set. The only thing U will be disappointed with is that there is no more new Futurama coming.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sad but brilliant end (yet again). February 8, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The final half of the final season of Futurama doesn't disappoint (save for the fact its the last).
The packaging, like the other volumes, is a great design. The artwork and color is a nice addition to the dvd shelf, the only problem is the cover art is so good it beckons a Full Display. Which, lets face it, is an awesome problem to have.
The episodes are brilliant, the commentary is the full flung fun its always been full of nerdy facts, technical tidbits and insight into a lot of the writing and voice work.

For the fourth time, I own the entire dvd collection of Futurama. A weird notion. Speaking of, the Series Finale 'Meanwhile', as it currently stands, is among the better episodes and is certainly on par with the previous (at the time written) Series Finales; The Devils Hands Are Idle Playthings, Into the Wild Green Yonder and Overclockwise.

A bitter sweet addition to the collection to be sure but considering the talent everyone behind this show has, the potential for further stories and its past reluctance to stay dead I'm sure that in the not-so-distant future I will be again buying new volumes of Futurama

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong Finish January 29, 2014
By Alayna
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love this show. It's funny without being overly crude. There's only one episode in this set that I won't let my kids watch (the zoo). The final episode is the best ending that a show could have. It gives a sense of finality while still having the option of continuing on. I believe that when shows end in this manner it means that writers/creators/producers still like the show and they aren't just "phoning it in" or collecting a paycheck. They respect their viewers and want to give them a good product. Futurama has succeeding in doing just that.

If you're a fan of Futurama like I am (if I had a kid he might be named Bender) then you'll want to get the DVD box sets for each season. They contain the audio commentaries by the producers the writers and the voice actors and they are a great time. It adds a whole new dimension to re-watching episode you watched in the past. Something you definitely want to dive into it you haven't yet. I mean it's something that is worth buying all the previous seasons just to enjoy these commentaries.

I want to say that season eight wasn't the greatest season of Futurama ever but there are memorable quotes and great episodes. Will this be the final season that remains to be seen but personally I think it will rise again. But yes if you're a diehard fan be sure to check out the audio commentaries for each episode. It's one of my favorite parts about buying the box sets.

Thanks for reading!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as nice as the original release sets December 30, 2013
By SmW
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
At least you will have a copy before the cartoon is gone forever! These releases are sadly a cheaper quality than the ones you could order from the original seasons...the envelopes are just stiff paper and the features are really lacking. I like the art and the ability to watch them whenever or to keep a hard copy around. This rating is for the disc set, not the show content, as that is a review best left for a blog or an internet argument.
