Can't Get Enough Futurama reports that
This might be a good reason to pick up the new DVD even if you have the episodes from the boxed sets.  (Of course, Fox might have started the rumours to encourage us to do just that.)

I'm almost positive Fox only give a fuck about domestic sales, not international. Futurama was at one point the second highest rated show on Sky One after The Simpsons, something that had no impact whatsoever on their decision to axe it. Family Guy DVDs never really sold very well over here did they?

-edit-
I notice that they've put The Sting on it, one of the shittest episodes of the entire run. What are they thinking?
For new extras though I'll buy it. I'm a loser and it's my favourite TV program ever in the history of telly. Ever.

I understand that The Sting is very popular among the fans, but I've never really liked it much either. Instead I would have added an episode like Xmas Story, Hermes Requisitions His Groove Back ('Do a back flip!') or The Problem with Popplers ('You can't, like, own property, man.' 'I can. That's because I'm not a smell hippy.').

I 'm suprised at the episodes the've chosen but i guess everyone has their favourites. I'm shocked The Farnsworth Parabox isn't on there though- that's one of the best. huh.gif

Billy West has apparently dropped this little nugget on his message board confirming the talk at FOX:
QUOTE (Billy West)
Well, I spoke to David X.Cohen because we did promos for a new Futurama compilation and he said that they did have talks with the top guys at FOX and they were extremely impressed with the sales of the Futurama DVDs. The idea was to make a Futurama movie right to DVD and then a 2nd and a 3rd. That's what's being discussed. Fox is trying to figure out a budget for the whole project, and it sounded like David X. was very jazzed!

I would love more than anything to do that show again. I thought it was best experience on every level... creatively, voice-wise, writing, animation and the laughs. The laughs. Writers and performers that respected each other.

Heh. "Jazzed"

I never understood why Groening doesn't just front the money himself. Expensive for a TV show but cheap for a feature, that's what they always said. He can afford it and reap the DVD sale benefits all to himself.

If anyone has shopped around for the season boxsets and knows of some good online places, please give me a heads up. I'm looking to get the lot in one go, if I get the funds together.

I really hope that a Futurama film or two will get made, I love Futurama and the possibility of more Zoidberg is just two good to be true. This would be so great for all the Futurama fans out there, and i'm quite surprised to see that the Futurama DVDs did sell well, i know that Family Guy did but I've never heard much about Futurama sales.

I know at least two people who cite 'The Sting' as their favorite episode.

Mine's 'The Luck of the Fryrish' - gets me every single time.
