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.
However, even though the main content is pretty awesome, there are some details that subtract a star for me.
The commentaries (which are really the reason I wanted these seasons on disc, when I could just watch it on Netflix) are a mess. On this set, you can choose to "play all episodes," watch each episode separately, or play episode with commentary, but not "watch all episodes WITH commentary." You can either watch each episode with commentary, and keep having to wait until the end of the episode, and the return to the main menu, to continue on, or use the Extras menu to directly select each commentary. Even Season 5's idiotic mess of options allowed me to set all the commentaries on (granted, one at a time), and then "play all episodes."
And the box itself, while having pretty snazzy artwork, has some piss-poor disc slots. Nevermind the fact you'll likely scratch the discs after a while having to slide them in and out, but the slots themselves are so loose the discs fell out when I turned the folded insert upside down. There's no grip at all to them. Granted, it means you won't scratch because of force, but seriously, allowing them to just fall out isn't any better. And the box overall is quite flimsy.
Here's hoping for a Blu-ray complete set, with sturdier packaging and uniform menus.
