This new Futurama: Volume 6 2-DVD set by The Simpsons‘ creator, Matt Groenig, encompasses the 2nd season after being off the air for a few years when Fox decided not to pick up the show mid-season. Dubbed Volume 6, it definitely lives up to the high standards of animation their previous volumes provided with its weird and quirky style, and the humor is spot on as usual.
Fry (Billy West) and Leela (Katey Sagal), the two main characters, continue to build a relationship and the script remains funny and fresh with enough sight gags and immature humor to keep any 20-year old guy happy. Satire runs rampant and no one is safe from the jabs and pokes and stereotypes are are exploited – exactly what Futurama is known for. The writers weave current events into the futuristic context and send the gang on covert missions, through time, and they manage to find a way to spoof politics, politicians, big business, and more. You’ll find new things to laugh at each and every time you watch this DVD.
The quality of the picture is fabulous with quality color and sound and the HD makes for a crisp and clean presentation.
Futurama: Volume 6 is still as hilarious as the earlier seasons and I’m looking forward to seeing more from this talented group of people.
