A Fond Farewell Dec 11, 2013
By Lunar Boulevard
It's tragic that this may indeed be the final season of Futurama, yet I can't help but smile when I think back on all the years of enjoyment this series has given me. This was a great season that had some fantastic episodes, including the unforgettable finale, which was every bit as touching and soulful as I was hoping. Along the way we saw Bender realize his dream of becoming a folk singer, Zoidberg found love, the Planet Express crew learned to work together, and Fry and Leela finally found what they were looking for together. You can't ask for more than that.
The packaging and special features are typical of what you would expect at this point. Those who were hoping for a regular plastic case will still have to suffer through the same cardboard packaging that we've been getting for the past few years, which is unfortunate but at this point it's unavoidable. The commentaries are top notch as always, finding the perfect balance between humor and insight. I hope Futurama can come back in some form but if this is truly the end then it's a bittersweet and wonderful one. Definitely add this to your collection and raise a can of Slurm to finest delivery crew this side of Mars.

The Fans Will Miss Futurama!!! Nov 14, 2013
By Adam Silvia
Futurama was probably the most loved show by geeks everywhere. Volume 8 has some memorable episodes that will crack you up. There is always commentary and cut scenes to look forward to. It also has delete scenes, bonus animator commentary, and an in depth three-part exploration of the animation process, and inside Futurama: The Writers' Room of Tomorrow.

Five star show. Oct 23, 2013
Great show. It is the last show that deserves cancellation, in my opinion. I really hope that somehow a way will be found to bring the show back to life in the nearest future. Highly recommended.

Strong Finish Jan 29, 2014
I love this show. It's funny without being overly crude. There's only one episode in this set that I won't let my kids watch (the zoo). The final episode is the best ending that a show could have. It gives a sense of finality while still having the option of continuing on. I believe that when shows end in this manner it means that writers/creators/producers still like the show and they aren't just "phoning it in" or collecting a paycheck. They respect their viewers and want to give them a good product. Futurama has succeeding in doing just that.

A sad but brilliant end (yet again). Feb 08, 2014
By Kristin H.
The final half of the final season of Futurama doesn't disappoint (save for the fact its the last).
The packaging, like the other volumes, is a great design. The artwork and color is a nice addition to the dvd shelf, the only problem is the cover art is so good it beckons a Full Display. Which, lets face it, is an awesome problem to have.
The episodes are brilliant, the commentary is the full flung fun its always been full of nerdy facts, technical tidbits and insight into a lot of the writing and voice work.
For the fourth time, I own the entire dvd collection of Futurama. A weird notion. Speaking of, the Series Finale 'Meanwhile', as it currently stands, is among the better episodes and is certainly on par with the previous (at the time written) Series Finales; The Devils Hands Are Idle Playthings, Into the Wild Green Yonder and Overclockwise.
A bitter sweet addition to the collection to be sure but considering the talent everyone behind this show has, the potential for further stories and its past reluctance to stay dead I'm sure that in the not-so-distant future I will be again buying new volumes of Futurama
