Futurama: Monster Robot Maniac Fun Collection

Having definitely found a niche beyond the Simpsons' monstrous fanbase, Futurama delivers quick-witted, off-kilter humour. There is a a growing and loyal fanbase that are as devoted to the show as many are to the Simpsons. This DVD is a mini release of 4 favourite episodes chosen by executive producers Matt Groening and David X. Cohen. Episodes inclue 'Hell is Other Robots', 'Anthology of Interest I', 'Roswell That Ends Well', and 'The Sting'.

The Emmy Award-winning sci-fi comedy has many great moments throughout the 4 twisted episodes. The characters all have great identities and sarcastic wit. The stories are far fetched and ludacrous, adding to the funny and bent jokes. Not quite as continually as funny as Simpsons, futurama holds its own with its unique style of humour that safely distances itself away from its comic bretheren.
