Default Futurama - Volume 5 DVD Review

It’s back! After a 7-year hiatus and a handful of direct-to-DVD films, Futurama returns with a vengeance. The show originally had a five-season run on Fox before being cancelled in 2003. It was revived for four direct-to-DVD movies beginning in 2007, and finally in 2010, all new episodes premiered on Comedy Central. Being a fan from the Fox days, I can confidently say the show hasn’t missed a beat. It’s every bit as funny and irreverent as the original run.

For those unfamiliar with the series, here is the basic set up. Fry (Billy West) was a pizza delivery boy in the year 1999. Just as the millennium was about to change, he accidentally cryogenically froze himself while delivering a pizza to a lab. He then awoke in the year 2099 and ended up working for his future relative Professor Hubert Farnsworth’s delivery company Planet Express (Billy West) along with co-workers Leela (Katey Sagal) who is a mutant Cyclops and the object of Fry’s affections, robot Bender (John DiMaggio) who is a foul-mouthed heavy drinker who likes to steal, and Dr. Zoidberg (Billy West) a lobster-like alien who claims to know medical knowledge about humans.
