I waited and waited and waited and was finally rewarded when the last season came out. The creative force behind the series is still fresh, and the animation is stellar (no pun intended). The 2 best episodes: “The Late Phillip J Fry” and “A Clockwork Origin”, both had complex plot lines and some of the most intricate scenes as far as the actual layout and art. Looking forward to many more seasons!

Season 5 is a very good season overall. The first couple episodes are great. All your favorites are back, and not just the main characters… Kif, Zapp Brannigan, Earth President Nixon (head), Elzar, etc… Besides the funny episodes we’ve come to expect Season 5 also gives us a couple of emotional roller-coasters too- while not quiet as sad as the fate given to Fry’s dog in earlier seasons (later fixed in the first movie-Futurama – Bender’s Big Score) you might shed a tear on the episode about Bender’s birth or the Time Travel episode where Fry gets stuck in the future (again.. I guess.) Without giving away too much if for some reason you couldn’t see this season when it aired on Comedy Central you will NOT be disappointed by this release. ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD!
I am so grateful Futurama came back in amazing quality. Season 3-4 were starting to lessen and the movies were a big disappointment. This new season was a jaw-dropper…it was very, very, very good! A total shock and pleasant surprise to say the least. I am an avid, crazed fan again.
