I didn't even realize they re-did all the old Futurama volumes to match the new designs that started with Vol 5. I watched the show through Netflix and loved it, but at this price I may have to bite

Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image


My OCD is annoyed, slightly. South Park (and several other shows) changed up their casing a couple of years back too going from cardboard cases to slimmer plastic packs and re-releasing everything in the thinner cases. Then of course Blu-ray releases makes you wonder "Why bother with DVD at all?" And then its like - Do I really want to own this physically as long as its streaming on something like Netflix?

I love the new designs so much, I already have all the volumes. The redesign just came out a couple weeks ago I think. I suggest buying them, they have commentary for EVERY episode, and sometimes they are even funnier than the episodes. They make fun of Fox and talk about which "finale" episode is everyone's favorites. Make fun of writers with degrees in writing and English, loads of fun.


Did the earlier releases of Vol 1-4 not have commentary? I don't know that I ever checked on mine. Amazon seems to indicate the older versions have commentary.

I'm also wondering how long this sale is. I only own Seasons 6 and 7 of Buffy (1-5 were all $30 or so) so I'd love to grab the other 5 for $30 + tax but can't spare it for a few days.

Ever since they released the new design with Vol 5, I've dreamed of them doing the same for the older releases so this was a nice surprise. Now I do wish they were on BD, but I'm not sure if there's any chance of that happening.

Even with Netflix, I do feel like there's some shows that are worth owning. I felt that way after watching this, as well as Avatar: The Last Airbender through Netflix. The commentaries certainly help justify the purchase too for me since it'll sort of be a new experience unlike what's available on Netflix.

Found my post from 2 years ago when Vol 5 came out. I've caught up on Futurama since :D

I really love the cover art for this. Reminds me of something Criterion would put out. Sadly I've never seen Futurama (don't stone me!) but I really want to.

This sounds like a really great deal. I wish Fox would release the older seasons with this art style

My point is that Futurama has commentaries that are worth the price alone and that you won't get through Netflix who could drop the show at any time.

Are the first two seasons of Louie worth picking up? I like Louie CK and heard a lot of good things about the show, but could never really get into and thought the pacing was really slow (admittedly only seen a few bits of the first couple of seasons). I did like the most recent season though. Had some funny moments and the plot was decent.

I really like them. The episodes aren't really related to one another, though there's some recurring plots I guess. I watched it through Netflix, so if you have that you can check them out

Oh shoot--quick, people, I need your opinion: All seasons of The X-Files are $10.49 on Amazon right now. Should I buy the remaining seven seasons at that price (i.e., is that a good enough price point?)? I definitely have enough Amazon credit to cover it.

Erg, Simpsons seasons. I can only imagine that someday there will be a megaset on Blu but it might look awful on the early years. I only have S1 as it stands, to get a bunch of the great early years might be the way to go. Also might be in for S1, 2, and maybe 4 and 6 of Buffy as I have the rest.

I don't have any of the Simpsons seasons but I know they were at their best at Seasons 3-6 which I'll pick up of course.

I remember when the seasons retailed for $100. Of course those were the bulky originals and they now gave slim packs, but still......thars like 90% off. Yah....its worth it. I got these on average for like $50-$60 years ago.

Just got shipping confirmation for my order from yesterday and it gave me a code for 10% next purchase. Code is SHOP10 (enter on cart page). I'm going to assume it's a generic code; don't know if it messes with free shipping or not. Enjoy!

Yep, came in the same email as my tracking number. Oh well, I didn't plan on picking anything else up anyway, just figured I'd throw it out there if anyone else had wanted to use it.

I picked up both seasons of Dollhouse on blu ray. I will say that the Futurama Volume 7 blu ray is only $25.99 on their site as well. It's only $4 cheaper than Amazon, but if you're going to be placing an order anyway, it would also get you free shipping by itself.

ssjmichael you should absoluetly buy Futurama 1-4 at that price. I owned all of the original releases and still bought the new versions for $15 apiece when they first came out. They look very nice on a shelf side by side, and the discs contain all the same material as the original releases. I've actually considered trying to get a print of all the cover art they've done as it would also make a great poster.

If you don't own volumes 1-4 on disc already, the commentaries alone make it worth picking up at this price. I listened to and loved every one of them. Rarely are they your typical "oh, hey this thing just happened on screen. Yeah, I remember that." type of commentary.

So it looks like it might run through Saturday because the Simpsons deal has been going for awhile. Then maybe new deals on Monday?

I'm in the process of checking out now, and there's an option to check out as a guest. Maybe you clicked on that instead of register? That would probably explain it.
