The Future Looks Blu for Futurama: Volume 5

The people have spoken and the future is Blu.  Wait!  That makes no sense.  That’s so 2008!  What I meant to say is that Matt Groening’s Futurama: Season 5 will see a Blu-ray release on December 21st.  Fans of the show have to be ecstatic!  I never seen the show before, but I heard it is hilarious.  But don’t worry about me.  Check out the full press release below from Fox Home Entertainment and pre-order your set today!

Attention Planet Express staff,

We’re back in business! Planet Express is now delivering “Futurama” Volume 5 to terrestrial locations beginning December 21, 2010 just in time for the holidays! The Simpsons genius, Matt Groening, placed a large order of these shiny discs featuring the animated series truly light-years-ahead-of-its-time! Join my friends Fry, Bender, Leela and the rest of the gang for 13 hilarious new episodes that tackle some of the most controversial subjects in the galaxy…including evolution, mind exchange, feline intelligence and even robosexual marriage. Bender believes it can happen!

Planet Express will deliver “Blu-ray” for the first time and both sets contain hours of exclusive features such as deleted and extended scenes; audio commentaries; featurettes including “Bend it Like Bender”, “Previously On…”, “Fry’s Crudely-Drawn Comic Book – The Crudely Animated Edition”, “Behind the Fungus: Makin’ a Hit Song”; and more. It also features voice talents of famous people from centuries ago such as Coolio, Chris Elliott, Craig Ferguson, Al Gore, Matt Groening and George Takei.

The 2-disc Blu-ray version arrives in very stylish packaging. Cigar not included.

    Yup yup. Easy by for me. I think the thing I like most about my Futurama DVD sets are the commentaries which are both hilarious and surprisingly educational, given all the obscure math and science humor that mixes with the great sci-fi satire/social commentary. And now that I’ll have a blu-ray version of this series, it can only get better.
