It seems odd that LOCUS Online has just posted a review of Futurama , but its a combined review of the three released DVD sets. Well, the three in the US that is.

I agree with most of the sentiments expressed in the review and I think its ultimate demise was, in part, that it was too SF. In other words, the general public, those who aren’t SF fans, might feel they were left out of some of the jokes, and they would be right. I think this also contributed to the Hollywood types not “getting the show” (along with a complete lack of imagination), which is what led to the cancellation. I do think this show has a lot to offer everyone, and it should be a candidate to bring back to the small screen, over other “lesser” shows like, oh, Family Guy….
