A few weeks ago we passed along the word that December 10th is the release date for Futurama - Volume 8 on Blu-ray Disc and DVD, and that Futurama - The Complete Series is also in the works for DVD release very soon. Today, in an alert notice sent out to retailers, Fox Home Video showed that The Complete Series has been scheduled for the same street date: December 10th. They've also put pricing on these: $199.98 SRP for the complete set (which has "all 124 outrageous episodes, plus 4 feature-length epic adventures and enough DVD extras to last you until the next millennium...& an Exclusive 2014/3014 Calendar!"), and then $29.98 SRP for the DVD version of Volume 8, and $39.99 SRP for the Blu version of that same 8th volume. The Volume 8 sets, in both versions, will have these extras:

  • Audio Commentary on All Episodes
  • Precious Trimmings: A Compendium of Deleted Scenes
  • Futurama University
  • Inside Futurama: The Writers' Room of Tomorrow

The Complete Series is a letdown. All DVD, no blu-ray? At the very least, a DVD and blu-ray mix would have been nice. At least there isn't an exclusive bonus disc, that those who bought the individual sets would miss out on.

Also, I would love to have the first two movies on blu-ray.

Oh well, I can live in hope of a truly wonderful set down the line if David X. Cohen and Matt Groening take it upon themselves to make sure we get something special if it becomes apparent that the show isn't coming back.

My dream set would be:
  • Seasons 1-4 presented on blu-ray, upscaled, etc.
  • Proper blu-ray releases of Bender's Big Score and The Beast with a Billion Backs
  • All of the previous blu-ray releases available
  • All of the special features previously available
  • New commentaries on every episode (or, more realistically, on selected episodes)
  • The episodic versions of the movies
  • A retrospective documentary of some kind
  • "Simpsorama" and some "Simpsorama" special features such as deleted scenes, a making of doc, a commentary from the Futurama crew, a commentary from the The Simpsons crew and a commentary from everyone, together
And this might be pushing it, but
  • A soundtrack CD containing clean recordings of Christopher Tyng's music used in the show (and all of the musical numbers)
  • A presentation of the game in some form, either made playable for the PS3 or PC or downloadable in some capacity - I'm not sure how easy this would be for them to do

Wondering why the Futurama Vol 8 is not less expensive yet... blu-ray $36, dvd $27... if I can remember, Amazon offered lower prices for the previous volumes in preorder.

That or I'm being poorer every year frown

I agree with the last three comments.

The complete set is a letdown on dvd, and no new bonuses.. I guess it's good since its on dvd anyway.

Your dream complete set sounds great.

Are these volumes getting more pricey?
It seems so.

Interestingly, we'll most likely have Volume 8 in Sweden by December 11. I'm guessing this is before UK even gets Volume 7 (which I've seen in stores for a year now)

Well.. that's strange.
My first thought was that it wasn't released there because our versions usually share subtitles, but I just found out that Vol. 7 only had Swedish and English ones.

Btw, re: Bluray/DVD
I myself get the blurays from England. The (noticeably) better quality is worth it.

I love the Hypnotoad art for Volume 8. Without a doubt my favourite of the collection.

As for the DVD/Blu-Ray release. I'd probably get The Complete Series if they release all of them on Blu-Ray. No point getting most of the original episodes and movies on DVD again. I don't have a problem with the original episodes not being in HD, as it would be nice for them to have no graininess or artifacts in the Blu-Ray releases.

    First time ever that I went out to buy it (futurama) vol. eight on release day and Target didn't have the Blu-ray or even the damn dvd!
    Target has gotten volumes 5, 6, and 7 on Blu-ray all the December's previously.
    I guess they figured it's canned..  so who even cares.

    Walmart had the dvd.. and I bought a copy for my cousin for x-mas.
    But that's not what I wanted for myself.

    Even the video rental store didn't get any copies in to rent, and they previously got volume seven.

    So I had to go order the Blu-ray on Amazon.com in the end and wait even longer for the final commentaries.

    I'm not going to buy a dvd for myself of something when I have every other volume on Blu-ray since they switched over.

    Stupid Target... and my is rant over, thank you.

    P.S. I was actually going to buy two copies of the BD this year, and it pissed me off more b/c of that and the fact that it's probably the last set for many, many years at the very least.

      Listening to them right now (just got my copy from Amazon today). Will post whatever interesting trivia I hear starting right now.

      Forty Percent Leadbelly

       *When Bender was walking across the railroad tracks, it was supposed to have gone on 3x the length, with trains keep missing Bender.
       *Bender switched himself with the duplicate while they were attached by octopus’s.
       *The selling out song was voice recorded with a big base note ringing the entire time, shaking everything in the room (cans, pens).

       2-D Blacktop

       *The start of the episode was actually supposed to have had a lot of long scenes for a delivery to Ms. Aster’s Astroid to deliver the chandelier. This was to demonstrate why the ship was dangerous and the problems with it.
       *The ship crew was based on the one’s in the Fast and Furious movies.
       *Eric Rogers thought of the Minx backstory joke….get him guys. Wasn’t that funny to the writers until he called it unspoken verbal abuse.
       *There was an idea for the 2D plot before this episode where the crew goes diving for treasure and find a 2nd dimention by going into a bathosphere, but the writers couldn’t think of how to make it work quite right.

      T.: The Terrestrial

      *There was going to be more statues cut to such as the Holocaust Deniers Memorial.
      *Lrrr was supposed to have been interested in other modern TV shows like Hot in Cleveland and Downtown Abbey. He was also looking forward to the series premiere of Allen Gregory (why was that not put into the episode!?)
      *The sacred weed thing was supposed to have been expanded upon, including Omicron Persei 8 being OP8.
      *(Deleted Scene) The scene with the crew sneaking onto Omicron Persei 8 was supposed to be longer, with Hermes dressing up like an Omicronian and having his dreadlocks being horns.
      *Fry was supposed to get addicted to actual candy, but after about 10 minutes, it became turds, then it was all downhill from there.
      *Matt shows his dislike for poop jokes here, refusing to have the poop be brown here, or in the sewers.
      *Besides the you are my hero line at the end, all of the voice recording stuff from Bender was actually Billy West’s original recording being altered around with.
      *There was more Ndnd lines that were cut out.
      *There was going to be a long backstory with Lrrr as a young boy who also had a human pet, Neil Armstrong VIII. He kept him until he was 50, where he got all cranky and horny, so his father forced him to kill and eat him.
      *There was going to be a song at the end called ‘’Turn Out Your Butt Light’’….yeah. By Butt Turd Overload/Neil Diamond Phillip.

      During the tour of the writers room, a never used plot on a card reads something like: "In Bender's Plot To Steal God's Treasure; Bender Kills God And Claims Self Defense".

      Also in "Meanwhile" the crew slowly built a time button skip impervious mud tunnel that took weeks to manage to reach Fry and Leela; Instead of just moving it by lifting every ten seconds like in the finished episode. This resulted in Zoidberg, Hermes, Bender and the Prof. all growing beards and mustahces in the weeks it took to build the time button resistant tunnel leading to the Vampire State Building.

      Ken and DXC slightly fought over the bulk of "Meanwhile" taking place during sunrise or sunset b/c of the Vampire State Building.

      Ken Keeler was not a fan of Zapp and Leela hooking up in any and all episodes it happened.

      If you have any issues with "Meanwhile" Ken Keeler's original draft addressed many of those.

      Ken Keeler believes Futurama will in fact return for more ... years from now.

      Fry and Leela’s Big Fling

      *The zoo plot was thought of for years, some thoughts being to have it as a normal human zoo, another thought having it being a way for aliens to study human seduction, with them throwing Zapp Brannigan in the zoo with Fry and Leela to see the reaction.
      *Zapp was also thought of instead to ruin Fry and Leela’s vacation instead of Shawn, even having Shawn being very Zapp esque when first written for the role.
      *Matt’s been pushing for a lot of nudity this Season.
      *David X. Cohen played alto sax in middle school (loose use on the word ‘’played’’).
      *There was going to be more of traveling around the city on Simian 7, like going on the Swing Ways.

      The Inhuman Torch

      *Was originally just a concept by Dan Vebber about Bender starting fires and being a hero stopping them, but then mixed with plot about the crew going to the sun.
      *In the scene where Bender gets his medal, there was supposed to have been an orphanerium of baby models burning.
      *The writers got very interested in vampires at the end of Season 7 with this and Meanwhile. Also, Dan Vebber jinxed this being the final Season, thanks Dan.

      Saturday Morning Fun Pit

       *Matt Groening came up with Regretto.
       *Was made as episode 19 because at the time, they were running out of ideas (half laugh from everyone in the commentary).
       *At the time, it wasn’t decided yet whether to air it as the Season finale or not.
       *The “reuse in every episode” frame joke is wrong because that’s where Fry’s nephew lives, but the gang goes to a different place in every episode.
       *Discussed whether or not to have Hermes as Fred or just regular Fred because they have Frank Welker.
       *Wrap around with Nixon wasn’t in first draft. At first it was going to be the FCC, with their president Norton Anthology.
       *Purpleberry Pond originally had a “In the News” parody with Morbo.
       *A School House Rock parody was starting to be written, but wasn’t finished because the Simpsons did it.
       *Because David wanted to have some sort of script to do a table read with the next, and Patric didn’t have anything for the 3rd Act, he wrote something in exactly 45 minutes, which the writers immediately tossed out the next day.
       *G.I. Zapp was written in just one day just having the writer’s room make jokes and commentary.
       *G.I. Zapp had no table read.

       Calculon 2.0

       *Bottle based on I Dream of Genie. Robes based on Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.
       *There was a sequence before the play where Calculon had a series of acting adjusters in his chest that would change his acting abilities, such as a Shatner level. The sliders were also going to be in the play, with Calculon going back and forth between 12 voices and acting personalities.
       *Already said before, but Calculons play was originally written by Mike Rowe for The Butterjunk Effect for the start of the episode during Fry, Leela, Amy, and Kif’s date. After 8-9 good months floating around, it was eventually reused in this episode.
       *There was originally a rule that robots couldn’t blink on the show, but it does happen with Calculon for his acting purposes or if robots try like winking.
       *It makes sense that the director and actors didn’t recognize Calculon because there are other robots that are the same model as him.
       *Originally, it was going to be Fry and Bender who say bad things about Calculon to make him sad enough to act, but was changed due to how much they loved and supported Calculon in previous scenes.
       *Did follow the rules of Ghost in the Machines because technically, it was Calculon who killed himself.
       *David suggests a plot where Calculon haunts the theater.
       *The Walk of Fame was put in NNY to make it easier instead of having them fly back to Hollywood.

      Assie Come Home

       *The original draft had the first act being much longer, including Fry and Leela going through a gang initiation and killing members of the gang one by one.
       *Matt admits Simpsons episodes first acts used to introduce the main story, but are now completely just throwaway.
       *Originally they did show a scene with Bender getting bot jacked by a hand in the window.
       *Bender originally was only going to be a mouthpiece after getting bot jacked, with his eyes sold to Ms. Aster for an ocularium, including Betty Davis eyes.
       *There was a cut out joke with the Porno Dealing Monster yelling at Leela, saying she’s standing on a carpet made of scrotums.
       *Matt changed the 50 uses of the word ass in the episode with synonyms for it.
       *There’s a brick shoot on the design of the circuitry of Benders rear end.
       *Tarquin is a play on words of Quin from Jaws and a French word.
       *There was a scene cut out with the trio and Tarquin talking on the ship.
       *There was a scene cut out where they try to find the location of the ship wreck and it’s found on a map on Fry’s hand that was a wart or something.
       *Ken Keeler came up with the title of the episode.
       *Ken also was the one who put in the Bible passage said by Tarquin, remembering it out of thin air.

       Leela and the Genestalk

       *David said fucking…or bucking, I really couldn’t hear it that well.
       *A shout out to Australian fans by Cohen himself.
       *The western bar scene was wasn’t written until the end, with the writers focusing on a way to make Leela’s hand get sticky.
       *Fairy tale stuff was written after getting the genetic engineering plot made.
       *The bean selling guy originally had pointier shoes and skinnier legs (jeggings).
       *The window where the beans are thrown through was originally about 50 ft. higher in the buildings normal design, but they just went ahead and moved it down.
       *The porcupine was gonna be microwaved and filled with syringes.
       *The scene where Fry and Bender find out where Leela is was gonna be longer, with Leela dropping pebbles out of her cage spelling out that she needs help.
