There's not much to say plot-wise: if you're reading this review, you've probably watched and loved the first five seasons, and the sixth is much like. I do have to say that it's a drop in quality from the previous, but you'll get more than your fill of the crazy adventures of Fry, Leela, Bender and the whole Planet Express crew in this 13-episode set. Highlights include the Zoidberg-centric "The Tip of the Zoidberg", "Cold Warriors" and the non-canon anthology "Reincarnation". I would recommend purchasing this DVD to any Futurama fan or fan of comedy in general.
I wasn't sure how much of difference blu-ray would make on a cartoon, but it looks great on my TVs so I'm glad I bought them.
When I received this item the DVD case was wrinkled and damaged, but luckily the disc inside wasn't damaged and worked fine when I tested it in my DVD player. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU TEST OUT THE DISC AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
The only reason I gave this 3 stars instead of 2 is because I like Futurama. Very poor design.
They got too lazy on this one in my opinion both on the packaging and also the show. The shows comedy seems to be slipping up a bit compared to earlier episodes. Other than that my biggest dislike is the packaging and harder to keep discs from getting ruined. I will not re purchase this item just because the discs got ruined like the company probably hopes for. If I knew they were packaged like this I wouldn't have even bought it to begin with.
The packaging for Season 6 was made of a thinner card stock. The discs were mounted directly into the doubled cardstock via slots cut into it as makeshift sleeves (scratch promoting friction mount). This allows the discs to fall out and jostle in transit. Due to Amazon's "no hassle" packaging, one of two discs rattled about in transit and delaminated due to impact. The tri-fold sleeve is mounted into a thin cardstock sleeve, but this did not increase the sturdiness of the packaging nor prevent the violent jostling in transit as a proper DVD case should.
The discs themselves were both partially delaminated from the inner ring. The delamination from a single side to one disc indicated severe jostling and impact during transit, but the delamination from the inner ring, radiating outward indicates cheap manufacture, not unlike those "Four Movies for the Price of One" DVDs at WalMart. I expect the one good disc to delaminate to a non-working condition within a year or two.
Given these quality standards, it's no wonder folks pirate these products. I've seen highschool students make higher quality copies.
By contrast, the video quality on the working disc is what I expected in a professional DVD. Also the creative work contained on the physical product is excellent.
Physical product - 1 star
