Performance

Futurama broke new ground with its animation style, using 3-D intercut with hand-drawn animation to create a rich visual world. That world isn't populated with as big a cast of characters as the Simpsons (also created by Matt Groening), but it has the same high quality and irreverent humor. The DVD set is very similar to the Simpsons, also: quality transfers, group commentaries, a few deleted scenes, but not much else. The commentaries do a good job of cluing you in to some of the secrets and side jokes. All in all, a very worthy addition to any geek's collection.

Never should have been canceled!

If you never watched Futurama when it aired on Fox, you missed out. Fortunately, you can now pick it up on DVD! This first season introduces the main characters and pokes fun at a lot of different things: the new millennium, television, science fiction, the 20th century, and everyday life in America. Although some of the later seasons are a bit funnier, you need to watch this one to enjoy all the joking and character rivalry you see later on. The voice acting is superb, the humor often over the top, and the animation skillfully mixes 2D and 3D elements. By and large, it's one of the most enjoyable television experiences I've ever had.
