I love Futurama.  I haven't seen every episode and I don't watch it that often, but I love Futurama.  It took me a while to realize this, when it first came out I didn't much care for it and only saw it if one of my friends was watching when I went over to their dorm room.  But a couple years back I finally began actually watching the show and I must say it is hilarious and has so many jokes packed into an episode its astonishing.  Any show that makes the hero his own grandfather is one to watch.

And if you or someone you love is a fan of the show then this set is going to be a must buy.  On October 13th Fox is releasing a 19 disc box set that includes every Futurama episode and movie ever created, along with a ton of extras including a letter from creator Matt Groening.  But you better get it fast as only 25,000 sets are being created.  You can see more info in the press release below.


All The Fry, Leela, Professor Farnsworth And Bender
The Earth Can Handle In A 19-Disc Set Arriving October 13th
From Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment

The Entire Collection - TV Series And Four Feature Length Adventures -
Housed In A Collectible Bender Head, Only 25,000 Produced

LOS ANGELES, CA. - Blast off into space with the ultimate out-of-this-world collection over a thousand years in the making when "Futurama" The Complete Collection 1999-2009 lands as a 19-disc set October 13th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Join the Planet Express crew in their comical adventures across the universe with this intergalactic mind-blowing set, packaged together in a collectible Bender head, including a detachable rubber antenna. A must have for die hard "Futurama" fans, proven by the enormous popularity of limited edition copies sold during this year's Comic-Con, the set includes all 72 episodes from the hilarious animated cult series, as well as the four feature length adventures - Bender's Big Score, The Beast With A Billion Backs, Bender's Game and Into The Wild Green Yonder.

From "The Simpsons" creator Matt Groening, "Futurama" debuted in 1999 and immediately gained a faithful cult following. Cancelled after four seasons, an outcry from the fans and the show's success on DVD helped revive "Futurama" for four all-new adventures that debuted on DVD in 2007-2009. Recently the series has been resurrected again for its sixth season set to air on Comedy Central in 2010.

The "Futurama" The Complete Collection is highly collectible, with only 25,000 copies being produced one time ever. The collection is jam-packed with bonus materials including a letter from the "Futurama" creator Matt Groening and producer David X. Cohen, commentary from various cast members, numerous deleted scenes, an interactive still gallery, blooper reels and more. The complete 19-disc collection will be available for $169.98 U.S. / $199.98 Canada. For those fans that already own every "Futurama" adventure on DVD, a limited number of empty "Bender Heads" will also be available for purchase. Prebook is September 2.

Looking to get your FUTURAMA fix in great, big, hilarious, planet-sized chunks? Then this is your lucky light year! Now, in one shiny collection, you'll find all seventy-two original TV episodes and four epically amusing, feature-length adventures starring your favorite spaced-out space crew, plus enough extras to fill a moon base, if you're into that sort of thing. So buckle up...and blast off for laughs!
