Iíve never really watched this show. Iím not at all an expert on the show. If you have the first three volumes, then of course, buy this set to complete your collection. The set has tons of special features and behind the scenes stuff, so its any fans dream. So, buy the DVD before Bender eats it!

Ah, well I guess we could part with one of our Region 1 secrets and still be feared. I'll start you off with some of the comments on the episodes themselves SJM, seeing as how you were the one who answered many of my various Season 4 questions throughout the past few weeks.

On Disc 1: Bender
AWITM: This episode is kind of unpleasant and sexy... like me baby! Woo!
PL: Ooh, if you like intestinal parasite, you are gonna l-o-o-ve this.
AToTS: (gasp) Ooh, goody gumdrops, it's the one with Santy Claus! And a horrific onslaught of brutal violence.
LotF: You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you may vomit a little.
TBBoI: Eeh, this ones pretty good.
BL: It's a loove story. (girlish giggling)

On Disc 2: The Male Nibblonian and the Big Brain
TDTESS: (MN) 1000 years ago, our sages foresaw that you would pick this episode! Our sages had a lot of time on their hands.
TL: (BB)Two lobsters and two robots make a Hollywood motion picture? Yes, that's logical.
TCHR: (MN) In this episode, Leela gets two eyes. But we Nibblonians have three eyes! Is no one concerned about our feelings?
WTBR: (MN) The buggalo is a creature that is crucial to the Martian ecosystem. If you want to know more about the buggalo, watch this episode.
IntM: (BB) Even a big brain, might go insane, etc. (rambling speech with a lot of words that rhyme with "ain" )
TRoAE: (MN)Paper boys in space! Heh. Great
work, everyone!

You know, a lot of those are funnier on paper then they were delivered.

The Insane in the Mainframe one is;

Even a big brain might go insane from the strain, placed on the brain, from trying in vain, why a human trapped in a robots domain, would fail to entertain.

.....or something like that.
I'm ordering S4 when I get home from school today, but stupid Amazon took a week to deliver S3, so it's going to take a while to get S4 as well.

Alright, I have my set and have watched it. First let's get what I don't like about it out of the way: TOO LITTLE JOHN DIMAGGIO. He is the driving force, and he was only in no more than 8 commentaries out of 18. That really disappointed me. And, in the easter egg table read of "Devil's Hands," John must have missed it, because Maurice ended up doing Bender. But besides that, this is the BEST SET EVER. The main menus, episode menus, language menus, scene selection menus, special feature menus; they're all fantastic, and the best we've seen ever. Judging on the DVD itself, this is the best set ever. What a way to go out on.

Yeah, the package and art is pretty sweet.

And the glow-in-the-dark-effect is a cool little feature, but nothing I'd call earth-shattering.

I wouldn't call John Dimaggio a driving force, although he's certainly amusing.  I really like that Maurice LaMarche is there more often.  Maybe because he's been my hero since the days when Animaniacs was on.

I really liked the all-writers commentary on Jurassic Bark.  I'm glad SOMEBODY pointed out the horrible spelling of archaeology.  Being a student of it I was really upset when I first saw how they spelled it.

... well, not really upset, but come on!

Oh, some more things:
 - Watching the DVDs, I see that KGKUAN actually had some funny lines in it, while Leela's Homeworld had only a few, and no other redeeming qualities. So, Leela's Homeworld is now my least favorite episode evah and KGKUAN takes second.
 - On that note, some of the delelted scenes for KGNUAN and Homeworld were actually pretty funny, like the hangman and the comment about the child conceived with the sperm truck collided with the egg truck. Those would have made the episode better! You couldn't cut some of the crap out of them and made room for that. Oh, and 'The Sting' had this really great line of Fry's that was cut right before Leela packs the baby queen some honey, but I don't remember what it was, but I knew I would have laughed if it remained in there.
 - I am extremely amused by the commentary for "Spanish Fry," I think I'm crazy.

You're not crazy, I found the commentary for Spanish Fry highly amusing as well - if not just for the great sound effects.

I'm a big fan of "boing" kind of sound effects.  Especially when made by people.

I just finished listening to all the commentaries.  I think David Cohen's experience with Ikea story from Less Than Hero almost made me pee my pants.

Thanks so much for the compliments! I was wondering if anyone liked the menus. It was soooo fun working on the project and, since I'm a huge fan of the show, I was very thankful to have the opportunity. Long live Futurama!

So I stopped by Wal-Mart today to finally pick up S4 (I've been woprking way to much this week & this is the first chance I've had to try to get it).  In any case, I get there, & they are completely sold out.  Although bad news for me, I guess thats good news for DVD sales.

Was it this thread where we were comparing prices?

In any case, I got mine for $36. It's one of the lowest prices I've seen so far, but I think someone beat me with $34. It was on sale because it was brand spanking new. Watched a couple episodes on disc 1, laughed my ass off in Less Than Hero when Bender got punched by that kangaroo and it said "0100101!!!"

Don't know if you noticed, but the little man was almost hung in the hangman scene. Pretty funny if you consider that Bender's word was made up of 1's and 0's.

Favorite deleted scene:
"I wish mom had bought me the green jacket."

I love Mr. DiMaggio, but I wouldn't call him a driving force. I like that different people got to do the commentaries.

And I'd have to agree that this is the best set ever! I like the random sound clips better than Season Three where you'd hear the same thing each time. (Although, those were awesome.) Very nice set, indeed it is.

But a question? Does the R1 package glow in the dark? I've been keeping it in sunlight during the day so that it will, but it just won't glow.   hmpf It INFURIATES me so!

Well, now I can say I've watched all 72 episodes at some point. The ones I hadn't seen before buying this DVD were Kif Gets Knocked Up A Notch and Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles, watched them both, not the best episodes but they definetely did it for me. It's pretty hard to top episodes like A Head In The Polls or A Big Piece Of Garbage though.

Get ready for a buncha muncha cruncha boring comments. Or, you know, scroll past 'em. It's a free country internet.

When I bought my copy, the guy in line behind me was buying not one but two of them. I greeted him with, "Hey, fellow nerd!" and he said, "I can't help it." Then I paid and skipped merrily on my way, muttering, "I'll take eight!"

I thought the commentaries were as great as ever, though I'm mourning the lack the DiMaggio. He rocked when he was there, at least. Singing about finding honey and such. Maurice was about as good, though. He cracked me up three times on the commentary for The Why of Fry. Correct me if I'm wrong, but was Chris Tyng absent for the whole set? If so, I miss him. He's never scored a bra, and he taught me about boobams. I'm happy that Ken Keeler was featured on three commentaries, despite having only written one 4ACV episode. I like him. Oh! And David A. Goodman totally sounds like a muppet.

Some of the singing on the table read made me shudder (especially from the real opera singers), but it was worthwhile for the cut Leela lines. I got a kick out of "You want me to climb on your head?", "That doesn't seem seemingly reasonable," and that bit about being deafened by her own applause.

Agreed with newhook_1 about the favorite deleted scene (with the LH hangman thing as a close second). The line was funny for the skewed Fry logic, and then it was funny again when it sunk in for me how pathetic it was that his mom bought his jacket for him.

The cover art? Suh-weet. Hopefully, we're not missing out with the lack of glowing.

I'm glad the scene selection is broken into "opening credits, act one, act two, act three, closing credits" again. The Volume 3 scene selection annoyed me.

The subtitles blow as usual. Some of the spelling is funky, and they don't put song lyrics. Their lame-osity did get a laugh out of me on The Why of Fry. In the scene under the desk, they have Fry saying, "Mmm, Leela," like she's donuts.

I found Leela's Homeworld a lot funnier than I remembered. My Obsoletely Fabulous not-quite-hate, however, has nearly doubled. So has my annoyance at Love and Rocket's avoidable continuity issue. And Leela's Homeworld's. Gah, now I'm all worked up. Deep... calming... breaths. That's better. I either like or love the others. $36-ish well spent.

I don't know if this is what Tongue Luck is referring to, but the whole sequence where Farnsworth is discussing the modifications to the ship is a walking continuity issue (intentionally, I might add). And of course the HAL style panels.

None of which stops me from listing Love and Rocket as one of my favourite episodes of the series.  wink

Plus there's the part with the crazy additions to the bridge - like the lion, and the addition of the brain room, which will never be seen again. But I don't mind, they're all just jokes anyway.

For some reason the line in the table read about the "scary red ink" made me crack up.  Anyone else love that line?

Anyways, again great commentaries, Maurice LaMarche in particular really shined.  "You watched it!  You can't unwatch it!", "(in Kif's voice) This is really how I sound....", etc.

And if he's still reading this, GREAT menus Futufan.  smile In general I think these sets should be the gold standard for all tv animation sets to follow.

The lion and stuff, I liked. But it irked me that they pretended the ship had always had a personality. I don't know. It seemed like they could've just added the personality as one of the upgrades, instead of setting it up at the top of the episode and then tweaking it. I guess there's no objective reason for it to bug me, but it does anyway.

I forgot about the scary red ink, DTB! Now I'm amused again!

"I love Harry Dean Stanton in this scene, it's so creepy."

By the way, I noticed that they got the James Bond reference wrong in KGNUAN. It's You Only Live Twice dammit!  mad

And about the Table read. Was Dan Castelleneta (sp?) actually there? Because someone did a very good impression of him in A Tale of Two Santas. Also, did John DiMaggio come in late? It was obviously Maurice LaMarche earlier, but I think John showed up later. And one last nitpick. I really wish that you could fast forward or rewind those things. I didn't quite catch a line towards the end, and I don't fancy sitting through 35 minutes again just to hear it.  sleep

The commentaries are fun. I remember thinking, in the earlier seasons, that it'd be nice to have more Billy West. Now Billy's on almost all of them, and so is Maurice, and I miss John DiMaggio. Maurice is great, though. "I'm Maurice Lamarche, and I'm not in this episode!"

I think it was Crimes of the Hot where Ken Keeler doesn't remember the space suits he wrote in the second episode. Maurice's "You wrote it, you can't un-write it!" was the best moment of the commentaries so far for me. I've still got three or four I haven't watched yet.

The writing one for Jurassic Bark was great. I wish they'd been doing that all along. A commentary of just Cohen and Groening talking about development. One with just directors about the directing process. One with just actors, all of them praising Frank Welker's genius and talking about how Morbo, HG Blob, and Lrr DONT sound the same.

Also, the Morbo thing reminded me of one of my favorite jokes of the season. In 300 Big Boys, Mrs. Morbo adjusting Morbo's tie. And Morbo, in hushed tones, says "It's fine. It's FINE. I will DESTROY you."

Very good DVD set. And I'm still holding out for Vol 5. Don't mess with my fantasy world, all right?
