Nice. That "table read" of one of the episodes would be interesting if it wasn't just audio. Maybe its just me, but I would be interested in seeing that process.

How many volumes do you expect there to be in all? I think this is Groening's best work since Life In Hell. And yes, I'm including the Simpsons.

Walter Koenig: "Hrrrmm. When we woke up we had these wodies."
Fry: "Wheeee, now say nuclear vessels."

The R2 Season 3 set has been out since june, and Season 4 (the final set) was just released this week.

I have Season 3 and it is definetly on par with with 1 and 2. It ends at 30% Iron Chef.

Here is what Season 3 looks like:



Amazon UK review:

Amazon.co.uk Review
Good news, everyone, the third series of Futurama is just as funny as ever--irreverent, boundlessly inventive, warmhearted and chock full of in-jokes, sight gags and fleeting references to all manner of pop culture icons and obscure genre classics. In fact, if the show has a problem it's this very fecundity: it's all so lovingly crafted that scarcely a frame goes by without something both funny and clever going on: when a horse wins a race by a quantum fraction, Prof Farnsworth fulminates "You changed the result by observing it!"
Recurring minor characters (Elzar the chef, the robot mafia, the mutants in the sewers) pop up unexpectedly throughout, providing another wink to dedicated fans; like Red Dwarf, this is a show that loves the genre it sets out to spoof. Shame, then, that the show has had a troubled broadcast history and never quite found the mainstream appeal of its stablemate The Simpsons.

This year, Fry and the Planet Express team find themselves stranded on a planet of unfeasibly large women ("Amazon Women in the Mood"), standing in for psychotic Robo-Santa ("A Tale of Two Santas", with John Goodman reprising his evil robot) and variously falling in love with each other and sundry other humans, aliens, man-bots, fem-bots, virtual reality constructs and even the Planet Express ship itself.

On the DVD: Futurama, Series 3 comprises 22 episodes on four discs (see below for complete episode list). As with previous series DVDs the animated menus are a treat and there's a selection of bonus features including deleted scenes, storyboards, selected episode commentaries, animatics, "How to draw" tips and more. Best of all, though, each disc now has a "Play All" facility for the first time. Sheer heaven. --Mark Walker

Synopsis
Features the episodes 'Amazon Women In The Mood', 'Parasites Lost', 'A Tale Of Two Santas', 'The Luck Of The Fryrish', 'The Birdbot Of Ice-Catraz', 'Bendless Love', 'The Day The Earth Stood Stupid', 'That's Lobstertainment', 'The Cyber House Rules', 'Where The Buggalo Roam', 'Insane In The Mainframe', 'The Route Of All Evil', 'Bendin' In The Wind', 'Time Keeps On Slipping', 'I Dated A Robot', 'A Leela Of Her Own', 'A Pharaoh To Remember', 'Anthology Of Interest - Part 3', 'Roswell That Ends Well', 'Godfellas', 'Future Stock' and 'The 30% Iron Chef'.


Season 4

Sounds awesome, but I'm prettysure John Goodman didn't reprise his role as Robo-Santa. I think they had Billy West play him in "A Tale of Two Santas."

I can't wait for that episode about Fry's dog. It was so sad, but it remains one of my favorites.

Good News, Season 4 came in the mail today, and I have watched a couple of eps. The packaging IMO is the best of the bunch. Also something new, the menues have characters cracking jokes on them. Like disc four has Zoidburg, and 3 has Zap going on about Leela. Funny stuff. I'm getting ready to watch the Star Trek episode right now.
