Product Description

No more good news, everyone--this fourth volume of Futurama is the show's last. By turns frenetic and far-sighted, Matt Groening's futuristic comedy provided belly-laughs for self-confessed sci-fi nerds, but somehow failed to connect with a broader audience, even though it was often funnier and sharper than stablemate The Simpsons. So now bid farewell to the Planet Express team--Fry, Leela, Zoidberg, Bender, Amy, Hermes, Prof Farnsworth--as well as to kindly Kif, cloned Cubert, megalomaniac Mom, mutants in the sewer, the cast of robo-sitcom All My Circuits, swashbuckling space lothario and William Shatner wannabe Zapp Brannigan, Elzar the four-armed chef, and all the other characters that made Futurama such a unique experience.

This fourth and final year has all the elements that fans enjoyed so much--but also those elements that partially explain its cancellation. Recurring characters are great if you've watched the show before, as are the in-jokes; and the many parodies of classic science fiction are fine for the initiated, but risk leaving other viewers out in the cold. The show's strengths and perceived weaknesses are exemplified in the episode "Where No Fan Has Gone Before," in which the original cast of Star Trek play themselves: hilarious for Trekkers, but not really for anyone else. Elsewhere we find Leela discovering her real parents aren't aliens at all but in fact live in the sewers; Kif getting pregnant; Fry discovering the fossilized remains of his faithful pet dog; and Bender being converted to steam power. Despite some ups and downs, it's still the funniest animated TV show. Multifarious DVD extras include cast and crew commentaries, deleted scenes, animatics, galleries and Easter eggs. --Mark Walker

5.0 out of 5 stars Final DVD Nov. 13 2006
By Tommy Sixx Morais TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
INTRODUCTION:Futurama was created by Matt Groening who also invented the popular t.v show The Simpsons the show was great but the show only aired 4 seasons as the FOX network cancelled it.A show with the potential of becoming as big as the Simpsons Futurama keep getting known because of re-runs and the 4 seasons dvds.

REWIEW:Futurama`s last season had great episodes like `The devil`s hand are idle playthings`and `Where no fans has gone before`are among the serie`s best episodes.The final season is to buy for fans of the serie.Futurama was great while it lasted but i still dont know if futurama could have got better.I say that because the simpsons was in its prime starting from season 4 to the season you decide and it might just have been the case with Futurama.

SHAME ON YOU FOX!!!:I am very mad at FOX for cancelling Futurama one of my favourite shows.The network really didnt give a f*** about futurama.They also cancelled Family Guy so FOX is used to cancel great shows that people care for.Next thing they will cancel the Simpsons and King of the hill and i predict that they could ruin t.v.

FUTURE-RAMA:FOX cancelled Futurama but now they had plans for movies and there is negociations to get the show back on air.Look like they realized they goofed.They did the same thing to Family guy they got it back on television and its a hit now the same will happen if futurama comes back.

DIFFERENCE?:Futurama was quite different from the other shows like the simpsons,family guy,american dad,south park,king of the hill and the list goes on.Because it was in space and it didnt focused on a family like many of those shows did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Football killed Futurama Jan. 10 2005
Format:DVD
The official editorial review neglects to mention that although this DVD is titled as "Season 4" the episodes actually ran in two seasons. In season 4, the show was quite frequently pre-empted when Fox's NFL Sunday Night football games ran long. Those pre-empted episodes aired the following season (so-called season 5) after the show had already been cancelled. It can not be said that the show did not get a wider audience because of too many in-jokes, or that it contained too much sci-fi to appeal to non-nerds. The fact is that in season 4, it was difficult for even die-hard fans to actually catch an episode. The kicker is that just prior to season 4, it won an Emmy for best animated series.
There are a few stinkers on this DVD, but not significantly more than in the previous seasons. Futurama got funnier each season, period.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why'd they cancel such excellance? Sept. 16 2006
Format:DVD
This show was awesome and much better then The Simpsons. The Simpsons has exhausted its exsistance and should turn it over to Futurama because like previously stated, won an Emmy for best animated series. Leave up to FOx to cancel another highly demanded series because of Fox's NFL Sunday Night football games. Rumor is Futurama is coming back so look forward to the series making a come back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Futurama rocks Aug. 25 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I have to say that even though I love all those other cartoons (IE; simpsons, family guy) I think that Futurama is the best cartoon show on television. Each episode may be totally different, while keeping with the overall story line of the series. For example Fry has frozen himself, impregenated his great grandmother, and even fuflilled a prophecy written some 1000 years before he get frozen. With shows like this its easy to froget about the simpsons.

5.0 out of 5 stars great July 14 2004
Format:DVD
it's a shame this show got canceled because it is superior to the simpsons in almost every way. while the simpsons is funny, it is hasn't changed at all and is way too politically correct. the story in futurama actually evolves and it managed to be an interesting show throughout it's run. one main reason for this is because there are so many more different characters, places, and situations in the 31st century.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and Touching July 14 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I don't want to parrot everyone else's review, but I have to say this series is one of the best animated shows ever produced. I still watch all the re-runs on CN even though I've seen every episode many times.
This is a great season, with my two of my favorite episodes - the Sting and Jurrasic Bark. Call me a baby, but these actually moved me to tears.
I am holding out hope that the show goes back into production (a la Family Guy), but it doesn't look good...
