Our Google Play movie deal of the week isn’t a movie at all, but one of the greatest TV shows of the last 20 years. For the princely sum of £24.99 you can own the complete collection of Futurama TV series/movies. It’s costing you about 20 pence per episode, for a total of 128 half-hour shows. First airing in early 1999 from Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons and the recent Disenchanted. Futurama is the best and most consistent of his creations. Following cancellations, recommissions, season breakups, airings played out of sequence and different season lengths depending upon syndication it’s hard to pin down how many seasons and episodes there should be, but rest assured they’re all here up to the final aired episode from 2013.
That’s 64 hours of entertainment for less than half a tank of fuel, bargain. Check out the original trailer below:
Half-hour animated series about a pizza delivery man named Fry who is accidentally cryogenically frozen in 1999 and wakes up 1000 years later to a brave new world–that in some ways hasn’t progressed much beyond the 20th century.
