Futurama: Volume Two
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
In one of the best episodes, Bender is given a "feelings" chip in order to empathize with Leela after he flushes Nibbler down the toilet. Elsewhere, Fry falls in love with a mermaid when the team discover the lost city of Atlanta, Fry and Bender end up going to war after they join the army to get a discount on gum, and John Goodman guest stars as Santa Claus, an eight-foot gun-toting robot. Brimful with blink-and-you'll-miss-them hip jokes (such as the sign for the Taco Bellevue hospital) and political and pop satire, Futurama isn't a stern warning of things to come but rather, as the makers put it, "a brilliant, hilarious reflection of our own materially (ridiculously) overdeveloped but morally underdeveloped society." --David Stubbs

The only problem with Volume Two is that, again, there is not 'Play All' option on the discs, which is really annoying. You have to start each episode separately and hit Play a second time. (This is fixed by Volume Three). There are more commentaries and deleted scenes though, available for each episode.
Here's a rundown of the episodes:
Episode One-I Second That Emotion.
Nibbler chips a tooth biting Bender's hinder. Everyone makes a fuss over Nibbler and Bender gets jealous. Bender flushes Nibbler down the toilet. Bender has to wear an emotion chip tuned to Leela's frequency so he will feel her pain of loss. Everyone winds out down in the sewer looking for nibbler and finds the mutants colony.
Episode Two-Brannigan, Begin Again.
Zapp and Kiff are stripped of their titles for destroying the DOOP station. This episode spoofs Midnight Cowboy in a hilarious, side-clutching parody. Professor Farnsworth hires Zapp and Kiff. Zapp fools Bender and Frye into mutiny against Leela, but then they have to reinstate her so she can save the day.
Episode Three-A Head In The Polls.
It's election day. Bender sells his body for cash, and Richard Nixon's head buys it to run for presidency against clones John Jackson and Jack Johnson.Read more ›
Cedric the Entertainer.... still on the air
30 Seconds to Fame.... still on the air
Futurama.... Cancellation Announced
You have got to be kidding me. Shows like Cedric, The Pitts, and 30 Seconds to fame...not to mention Married by America, Temptation Island 3, and Wanda at Large still get production dollars, but they are cutting Futurama, and they already cancelled the Family Guy? Jeez. There truly is no accounting for taste. Futurama really hits it's stride in Season 2, but even Season 1 was sharp, and well written. Buy this DVD and you will be turned on to the best show you've never seen. Trust me and everyone else that write a review for this DVD set, you will be glad you bought it. And try out Season 1 and the Family Guy Seasons 1 and 2. Now that is MUST SEE TV.

There are only a couple negative things I can really say. For one thing, there's no play-all feature. It's such a glaring omission that I was actually astonished to see that it wasn't there. The other bad thing is that there's only five episodes per disc. I've seen many season collections of other shows that had as many as eight. Since Season 1 is so much shorter, they probably should have bundled the two seasons together on five discs total.
But these are negligible. I say buy it!

I love futurama and the price was great for an early season. I gave this four stars only because I did not get the pictured cover. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
Great show, however there are two things that bug me about this set. The dvd case is made of flimsy cardboard/paperboard and won't protect the discs from anything. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Caitlin LaBounty
