    While I might have preferred a new series - 4 DVD movies are good enough for me.

    Does that mean that the Series is officially dead now because of these movies?

    I thought I have listened to all the commentary tracks on the DVDs and I have never heard Katey Sagal on any of them. I found it strange that the other commentators rarely even mention her. The only time I remember is when she played Leela like a Peg on Married...with Children. Is there a reason she was left out of the commentaries or did I just happen to miss them all?

    So, having all the DVDs, I AM a big fan and this is definitely "Good news, everyone."

    Now just let Arrested go somewhere else, and Fox can burn in a slightly cooler hell!

    NoThru, that page (and basically any occasion to show the toad on Futurama) are hysterical! I love it.

    Now, as I said, I'm still skeptical of anything happening (ever, basically), but here's an unofficial "official" stance from FOX:


    "Peter Liguori, who took over the position of president of the broadcasting arm at FOX (FBC) from Gail Berman in 2005. While at the TCA Winter Press Tour, he talked some about the prospects of Futurama coming back to life at his division:

    In terms of 'Futurama' -- there's no doubt that the 'Family Guy' model worked outstandingly. It's great to be a network exec and have a decision made for you by an audience. In terms of 'Futurama,' there haven't really been any active negotiations at this point. But I'd be an ostrich to just stick my head in the dirt and not realize what's going on with 'Futurama' as well. "

    Not a yes to future futurama episodes/movies, but clearly closer to a no, at least IMO.

    Since this thread is now about a DVD and not a TV show should it move to happy hour? :D

    I think they couldn't get her for the commentaries because she was too busy working on "8 Simple Rules..." So it was out of sight, out of mind while they were recording the commentaries and she wasn't in the room, but Billy West and/or John DiMaggio were in the room to talk about the 78 characters they had voiced in that particular episode.

    I thought they had her on at least the one for the episode where she finds her parents...it was her favorite.
