Futurama is so sharp and so funny at times that it manages to be dark, cynical, funny and uplifting all in the same episode, as in The Luck Of The Fryish. That episode and many other truly clever and funny stories are included in this set. Matt Groening's vision that technology improves with time, but people rarely do is alive and well in the 22 episodes in this set. Many classic as well as grade-B science fiction themes are explored with hilarious results, such as in Godfellas and Amazon Women In The Mood respectively. The show gives great comedic treatment to ideas seen in countless SF movies, TV shows and stories from the past. Episodes in this set range from good to great; there are no bad ones. Extra features such as commentary by creator Matt Groening and deleted scenes make the set a special treat. With comedy this dense, you can watch these over and over again many times and still find new things to laugh at as with other great comedy shows like Mystery Science Theater...
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.
