    Your Opinions and Comments

    8 / 10
    Season 2 of Futurama is even wackier than the first season. Fry is still stuck in the 31st century and the situations are basically more of the same, but better! :)
    The video transfer is good. There are no compression signs and picture is pretty clear of defects.
    The DD 2.0 soundtrack is ok. Of course, a DD 5.1 soundtrack would`ve been even better, since the surrounds could`ve been used for the numerous effects in the series.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The extras include a commentary for each episode, several deleted scenes, storyboards, animatics, a picture gallery and a multilingual clip.
    Bottom line - the second season is at least as good as the first one and the 4-disc set is a great buy. Enjoy! :)
