This show is one of the best shows ever created.

I'd also reccomend buying the Season 4 set (which contains the last 18 episodes of the series) even though this set is slightly better.
J. Hudak
The dvd's set is great, it has a lot of extras and very silly pictures on all the dvd's and behind them.

Futurama is so sharp and so funny at times that it manages to be dark, cynical, funny and uplifting all in the same episode, as in The Luck Of The Fryish. That episode and many other truly clever and funny stories are included in this set. Matt Groening's vision that technology improves with time, but people rarely do is alive and well in the 22 episodes in this set. Many classic as well as grade-B science fiction themes are explored with hilarious results, such as in Godfellas and Amazon Women In The Mood respectively. The show gives great comedic treatment to ideas seen in countless SF movies, TV shows and stories from the past. Episodes in this set range from good to great; there are no bad ones.
Extra features such as commentary by creator Matt Groening and deleted scenes make the set a special treat. With comedy this dense, you can watch these over and over again many times and still find new things to laugh at as with other great comedy shows like Mystery Science Theater 3000 or Monty Python's Flying Circus. I highly recommend this set and I hope to buy it as soon as it is available!

This is a great collection of the third season of Futurama. Note that this is the Complete Production Season of Futurama of 22 episodes, and is not listed in the same air order as shown of FOX. This set includes commentaries for every episode (IMO the funniest and most entertaining yet!), the Emmy award winning episode "Roswell that Ends Well" with an alternate commentary, deleted scenes from several episodes, a story board for "Parasites Lost", an animatic for "Anthology of Interest II" 3D Model tests for several effects used in the show, a table read for "A Tale of two Santas" (hidden easter egg), still art gallery, and more!
Even if you've seen all of the episodes in this set on the Cartoon Network, I'd still buy it for the commentaries alone which to me, are a lot more fun to listen to that the Simpsons commentaries. I'd also reccomend buying the Season 4 set (which contains the last 18 episodes of the series) even though this set is slightly better.

I must say, I was skeptical when I first saw this show being previewed to air on FOX. I thought "Oh great! A ridiculous spin-off of The Simpsons." But when the show started airing on Adult Swim after it was cancelled, I thought, "What the heck? I have nothing to lose right?"

Well! I was astonished at how well everything went together! Matt Groening has certainly out-done himself this time! I couldn't believe how much imagination and wit was put into this show. It made me think: "If Matt Groening has this much talent in imagination and humor, then why is it that "The Simpsons" has been stale for a period of time now?"

It also raised the question: why did FOX cancel this show after only a handful of seasons? And why did they cancel "Family Guy"? Then the stupid number of reality shows began to emerge and FOX's so-called "reason" for cancelling this show and "Family Guy" began to surface. The reason for cancelling the shows in favor for reality shows (American Idol and all that other crap) was that FOX felt behind the times and decided to go with the "reality" trend. BAD MOVE!!! Now that the show "Family Guy" has had such a cult following in DVD sales, FOX has "miraculously" revived the show. But, chances are "Futurama" is not returning to FOX anytime soon, which pisses me off so bad because it was on for such a short while. Anyway here's the story about the show and characters. Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

The series begins with Philip J. Fry, a New York City slacker who is cryogenically frozen by accident on New Year's Eve, 1999. He is defrosted one thousand years later on December 31, 2999 and finds himself in New New York City.
