This DVD collection of Futurama episodes, loosely based on the theme Robot Maniac Fun, rips a page from The Simpsons' playbook, offering newbies and casual fans an attractive option to full-season sets. Everything here revolves around robots, since the 'bot Bender voiced by John DiMaggio is in all four episodes, one from each of the show’s four seasons. In "Anthology of Interest I," the Professor Billy West allows the crew to see what would happen in various situations, including a 500-foot-tall Bender, using his "What-If" machine. "Roswell That Ends Well" -- the 2002 Emmy winner for Outstanding Animated Program -- finds Fry also West becoming his own grandpa, after putting the moves on his grandma. "The Sting" finds the crew on a mission to gather honey from killer space bees, which ends badly after Bender insults the queen. And in the best episode of the release, "Hell Is Other Robots," Bender is invited to a "jack-on" party and gets addicted to electricity. To save his soul he joins the Temple of Robotology, but he easily succumbs to his old ways during a trip to Atlantic City and is sent to Robot Hell. There he is tormented by the musical stylings of the Robot Devil the fantastic voice of Homer Simpson himself, Dan Castellaneta. Eventually, Fry and Neela Katey Sagal rescue Bender, and Neela muses, "Who would have thought Hell would really exist, and that it would be in New Jersey?" Each episode opens with a short audio introduction, and "Hell Is Other Robots" offers an optional commentary track.

    This is a great collection!

    First things first, I love the idea of putting these four episodes together, they are fantastic! But, I have to add to what the last reviewer said and give my opinion that 'The Sting' is much better than okay. Although it may not be as out there as some of the others, it's a really interesting episode and it is one of my very favorites.(probably due to my infatuation with Fry and his unrequited love for Leela!) The other episodes are just hilarious - I love Roswell that Ends Well. If you aren't willing to pay for all of the seasons, this is a great alternative, but I think you'll be reeled in by this set. (I'm off to buy volume 4 now!)

    Great for true Futurama fans!!

    Well I have to admit right off hand that I am really not the biggest fan of animated television, though I do like it occasionally. While channel surfing I would often find myself watching Futurama because it really is a funny show. But this collection is awesome!! It contains what Matt Groening, the creator of the show, finds to be the 4 funniest episodes ever, and I have to say that I pretty much agree with him. One of the episodes in particular, Hell Is Other Robots, is my favorite episode of the entire show overall. It has a guest appearance by the Beastie Boys, and it also has Dan Castellana, the voice of Homer Simpson, as a robot devil, who takes Bender to hell. Its hilarious!! Roswell That Ends Well is another funny episode that I really love! It has an alien interrogation scene that is very crazy and funny. The episode called The Sting is ok and interesting just for its view into bee culture. Anthology of Interest 1 is a very cool episode featuring a “what if machine”, that can show how things would be if people and events were different. Overall, I really like this collection. I think its great to see what episodes the creators of the show liked the best, and that knowledge lets the audience see these episodes in a new light. If you really like Futurama, you will love this collection. I love it just for Hell Is Other Robots!
