Good news, everyone, the third DVD volume of Futurama is just as funny as ever--irreverent, boundlessly inventive, warmhearted, and chock-full of in-jokes, sight gags, and fleeting references to all manner of pop-culture icons and obscure genre classics. In fact, if the show has a problem, it's that it's all so lovingly crafted that scarcely a frame goes by without something both funny and clever going on: when a horse wins a race by a quantum fraction, Prof. Farnsworth fulminates, "You changed the result by observing it!" Recurring minor characters (Elzar the chef, the robot mafia, the mutants in the sewers) pop up unexpectedly throughout, providing another wink to dedicated fans; like Red Dwarf, this is a show that loves the genre it sets out to spoof. Shame, then, that the show has had a troubled broadcast history and never quite found the mainstream appeal of its stablemate The Simpsons.

Fry and the Planet Express team find themselves stranded on a planet of unfeasibly large women ("Amazon Women in the Mood"), standing in for psychotic Robo-Santa ("A Tale of Two Santas", with John Goodman reprising his evil robot), and variously falling in love with each other and sundry other humans, aliens, man-bots, fem-bots, virtual reality constructs, and even the Planet Express ship itself.

Futurama, Vol. 3 comprises 22 episodes on four discs. As with previous DVD sets, the animated menus are a treat, and there's a selection of bonus features including deleted scenes, storyboards, commentaries on every episode, animatics, "How to draw" tips, and more. Sheer heaven. --Mark Walker

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.
