I waited and waited and waited and was finally rewarded when the last season came out. The creative force behind the series is still fresh, and the animation is stellar (no pun intended). The 2 best episodes: "The Late Phillip J Fry" and "A Clockwork Origin", both had complex plot lines and some of the most intricate scenes as far as the actual layout and art. Looking forward to many more seasons!

Season 5 is a very good season overall. The first couple episodes are great. All your favorites are back, and not just the main characters... Kif, Zapp Brannigan, Earth President Nixon (head), Elzar, etc... Besides the funny episodes we've come to expect Season 5 also gives us a couple of emotional roller-coasters too- while not quiet as sad as the fate given to Fry's dog in earlier seasons (later fixed in the first movie-Futurama - Bender's Big Score) you might shed a tear on the episode about Bender's birth or the Time Travel episode where Fry gets stuck in the future (again.. I guess.) Without giving away too much if for some reason you couldn't see this season when it aired on Comedy Central you will NOT be disappointed by this release. ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD!

Despite what everyone else seems to think, amazon is correct in saying that this is season 5 of futurama. There were 5 aired seasons of futurama, but for dvd purposes they produced the series into just 4 volumes. I make that point so that people dont get too excited thinking that they've not season an entire season only to be dissapointed that they already own these episodes. But regardless this was a great season of futurama. Also be sure to check out the new season starting on june 24th on comedy central.

First off I am so glad to see the series return, and to return in fine fashion with all of the original cast intact. Thankfully the episodes are just as fun, varied, and clever as you remember....for the most part.

There were a few episodes that did not have that "oomph", and a time or two where it felt like they were trying a bit too hard to deliver a joke, but I would chalk that up to a bit of rust for being off the air for so long. Again this is absolutely nothing to try and deter any Futurama fan, or even those new to the series as there is plenty of wit, charm, and story to be found here with two episodes in particular I found to be not only fun to watch, but very...moving for a lack of a better word. The quality of episodes ramp up quickly, but I do feel it's only fair to dock them a half star for it.

So this is really a 4 and a half star review? No, the other half star comes off for the packaging. The artwork, while simple I find to be the best of all the others to date. My problem? The DVD sleeves. Yes I said sleeves, not cases. Even worse they are cardboard sleeves, so to continue using the original packaging to house your DVD will mean scratches will be inevitable. It's very disappointing to see them packaged this way, especially comparing this packaging to the previous 4 seasons where you got not only plastic cases for your dvd's, but episode names and a brief synopsis of each episode on the back of each case. The was not a step, but a leap back. Hopefully complaints of the packaging will mean that Season 6 will be packaged much better, even if that's just me being optimistic. I would advise getting some cases to house your DVD's instead of the packaging itself, especially if you are a repeat viewer like me.

I am so grateful Futurama came back in amazing quality. Season 3-4 were starting to lessen and the movies were a big disappointment. This new season was a jaw-dropper...it was very, very, very good! A total shock and pleasant surprise to say the least. I am an avid, crazed fan again.

I'm SO glad Futurama is back, love this show. The only thing bad I have to say about this dvd release is the packaging sucks tired of this cheap crap already, the discs are placed in a slit/pocket no protection what so ever. So, if your planning to buy this make sure you have some empty dvd cases to place the disc in. But all in all the show gets 5 stars :)

If you are a geek, a nerd, a hacker or just someone who gets fidgety when Star Trek fan jokes are made and you never grew up this is what Saturday morning cartoons should have been, or at least now that you're an adult this is what your evening cartoon looks like. While the Simpsons lives on forever like a mutant zombie and Family Guy milks another joke tied to a bodily orifice or chicken suit Futurama sucks us in with superb character development, cutting edge humor, easter eggs for physics majors and makes a robot saying "death to all humans" all too lovable smoking cigars and chugging beer. What could be better? Well I could go on with numerous homages and quotes other than my title, but if you're here you probably know them and you probably saw the show.

I bought the first four seasons so I could watch them over and over... and over... and over... Until I went insane in the mainframe and needed to go out where the buggalo roam. I was sucking down slurm and snarfing popplers waiting with delight when the movies came out. Yeah, they screwed with the format and it was kind of like a watered down fix. This season proves that David X Cohen keeps with funny and never allows himself to get too preachy even though he's all over the kind of things that is bound to upset someone. Nicely done on sticking to funny. Even those of us not a fan of Al Gore find him enjoyable when he shows up in here (his daughter works on the show). If you missed some episodes or just want to watch them until you can recite the lines without dealing with commercials that aren't beamed directly into your brain get this. Otherwise explain to the class what you are doing in your underwear and why they aren't lightspeed briefs. After all you can't just sit there all day in your underwear listening to classical music. Oh, yeah... underpants is funnier...

Here's hoping for many more seasons of the best animated show ever!
