Editor's Note
After a decade spent with one of television's most important and consistently hilarious families, THE SIMPSONS, cartoonist Matt Groening branched out with this animated science-fiction comedy series. Set in the year 3000 or Y3K, FUTURAMA follows the delivery routes of Phillip Fry, a pizza boy who has awakened 1000 years into the future. He joins the crew of Planet Express Corporation which includes a beautiful cyclops named Leela, a substance-abusing robot named Bender B. Rodriguez, and the brilliant yet bumbling Dr. Farnsworth. This collection contains 13 episodes from the series.

"...Wary sci-fi phobes should rest assured that underneath the hovercrafts lies pure Simpsonian satire..." 04/04/2003 p.84

DVD Movie Guide 8 of 10
While other programs like Beavis and Butt-Head, Ren and Stimpy and King of the Hill rode the wave of TV animation popularity created by The Simpsons in the early Nineties, the folks behind that series took a while to try something different. But attempt something new they did. Back in 1999, we got a new series unrelated to The Simpsons. Futurama bears a lot of similarities with its older counterpart. The art retains the look of Matt Groening's drawings, and the comedic tone and style seem close between the two shows. However, Futurama was never just a Simpsons wannabe, as it created its own identity. Pound for pound, Futurama's provided better material over its run. The Simpsons remains the superior series overall, but during the four years in which they've gone head to head, Futurama boasts somewhat stronger work. - Colin Jacobson
