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.

Hypnotoad approves of this review. Dec 10, 2013
By Riddler Santa
No Futurama fan's collection could be complete without this set. The only thing U will be disappointed with is that there is no more new Futurama coming.
Cancel Simpsons, keep Futurama! Also, fix the menu options. Jan 06, 2014
By Sokudo Ningyou
I was pretty excited to get Futurama on Blu-ray (note to company: put the first seasons and movies on Blu-ray too! Upscale the damn things and be done with it), and this is definitely a nice set. The picture is crisp, the sound is great, and the menus and animations are pretty snazzy. Season 8's menu music and animations are particularly nice.
However, even though the main content is pretty awesome, there are some details that subtract a star for me.
The commentaries (which are really the reason I wanted these seasons on disc, when I could just watch it on Netflix) are a mess. On this set, you can choose to "play all episodes," watch each episode separately, or play episode with commentary, but not "watch all episodes WITH commentary." You can either watch each episode with commentary, and keep having to wait until the end of the episode, and the return to the main menu, to continue on, or use the Extras menu to directly select each commentary. Even Season 5's idiotic mess of options allowed me to set all the commentaries on (granted, one at a time), and then "play all episodes."
And the box itself, while having pretty snazzy artwork, has some piss-poor disc slots. Nevermind the fact you'll likely scratch the discs after a while having to slide them in and out, but the slots themselves are so loose the discs fell out when I turned the folded insert upside down. There's no grip at all to them. Granted, it means you won't scratch because of force, but seriously, allowing them to just fall out isn't any better. And the box overall is quite flimsy.
Here's hoping for a Blu-ray complete set, with sturdier packaging and uniform menus.
