Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Cree McCree
"The Simpsons is fictional. Futurama is real." Thus spake Matt Groening, creator of both Fox animated series. In fact, while Springfield's ostensibly normal citizens often launch into wildly surreal adventures, the outrageous alien life forms of Futurama's sly dystopia have not yet evolved beyond sleazy politicians and annoying roommates. The release of this bonus feature-filled three-disc set, which includes four episodes that were held back until Season 2, is a fine consolation prize for the more than 150,000 fans who signed a virtual petition to keep the show on the air, unsuccessfully. Newcomers, meanwhile, can see what they've missed. Our human stand-in is Fry, a cryogenically frozen pizza delivery boy who thaws out in A.D. 3000 and becomes an intergalactic delivery boy (albeit a very rich one, with 1,000 years of accrued interest on his paltry savings account). Teamed with Cyclopean bombshell Leela and boozy robot Bender, Fry boldly goes deep into the dysfunctions of the 31st century, where Leonard Nimoy and Pamela Anderson live on as disembodied heads. Sci-fi fans will lap up every clever homage, from Sleeper to Blade Runner to Lost in Space. Simpsons devotees will appreciate the Homer-like Bender. And anyone who roots for lovable underdogs can't help but fall for Fry, who squanders his fortune on a can of anchovies and inadvertently drinks the leader of a liquid race.
