Guide Review - "Futurama - Season One" DVD Review
I laughed myself silly watching "Futurama" on DVD. Both fans and those new to this animated TV show will probably like this DVD set. I've always enjoyed the work of "The Simpsons" creator Matt Groening. I loved "Futurama" on DVD as it followed the adventures of Fry (voice of Billy West), a hapless pizza delivery boy who stumbles into a cryogenic chamber and wakes up in the future. I loved his hilarious exploits as he adjusts to life in the year 3000, making new friends along the way. The cartoon characters and backgrounds looked terrific on DVD. Plus, the DVDs gave me the option of re-watching the episodes where previously I had laughed so hard I missed some of the dialogue.
