Futurama: Volume Four
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

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.Read more ›
Futurama, quite obviously, takes place in the future. And while it has sci-fi themes and many references to "classic" sci-fi, it's more a show about the pop culture of our time. Pop culture references are mostly endless, and always very, very sharp. One needn't appreciate science fiction in order to adore this show.
This season gives us the following:
- Kif Gets Knocked Up a Notch - Not one of the best episodes, but still quite humorous. As the name implies, Kif finds himself pregnant. 6/10
- Leela's Homeworld - Slightly better than the previous episode, this explores Leela's past, and how she came to the orphanage. 7/10
- Love and Rocket - A Bender episode, and a high quality one. Bender woos the new AI in the Planet Expresship. We all know how serious Bender is about commitment, and you can see disaster coming lightyears away. 8/10
- Less Than Hero - Fry and Leela manage to aquire superpowers and fight evil with Bender, who forces himself in the group. Largely a parody of 60s superhero shows, this is another quality episode. 7.5/10
- A Taste of Freedom - An episode with deeper meaning, and an episode centered on Zoidberg, leading to an episode low on laughs. 4/10.
-Bender Should Not Be Allowed on TV - Bender finally makes it onto All My Circuits. Biting commentary on the impact of television on children. 8/10
- Jurassic Bark - Fry delves into his past and manages to find his dog. His petrified dog. Hilarity certainly ensues, 9/10.Read more ›

ALL TOGETHER--- 414 MINUTES LONG
a) the show was a little too risque for 7:00 which lead to many arguments with the network (and the delay of the second X-mas episode)
b) It was cancelled week after week after week by football. Sometimes it wasn't even cancelled for football but for the aftergame commentaries. King of the Hill usually got shown, but Futurama was rarely seen.
Midway into the fourth season (right after they had one an emmy for "Roswell that ends well" actually) fox pulled the plug. They had never liked the series (too far out and weird) and the rating just weren't high enough. So the plug was pulled. Too add insult to injury, alot of the last episodes were delayed into the summer instead of being shown during the regular season. It wasn't even replaced. Two King of the Hills woudl be show rather than Futurama. The season faded out in the summer where few were aware that new episodes were premiering. It went on to get good ratings in reruns on CN, though those rating were still less then what it got on a average night on fox.
This is a Great Season. It's the first that had a few week episodes but overall it was still fantastic.Read more ›

First off, I'd like to say I'm a huge Futurama fan. I watched and recorded this show from it's pilot. I purchased the 1st volume on DVD before I even had a DVD player. Read morePublished on Nov. 9 2012 by revone
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... Read morePublished on Sept. 16 2006 by Josh Rawlings

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. Read morePublished on Aug. 25 2004
It goes without saying that FUTURAMA was the greatest cartoon television cartoons ever produced. It is more hip and far more witty than the corporate produced The Simpsons. Read morePublished on July 17 2004 by Marc
