Critic Reviews for Futurama: Season 5

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

To this day, the final image of a crudely drawn Fry and Leela walking hand-in-hand into the sunset remains perhaps one of the most heartwarming images in television history.

Futurama's first series finale is still its best, demonstrating the show's deft balance of absurdist, gag-heavy comedy and unexpected poignancy.

Though there were some shaky moments early on, the new episodes of Futurama ultimately reminded us why we wanted the series back so badly in the first place.

When Futurama is good, it's really, really good, and "The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings" is one of those "really good" episodes.

And as far as codas go, it doesn't get much better than Fry's squeaky, beginner-level holophoner sendoff, which I'll always at least partly consider Futurama's final bow.

In its final moment, Fry plays for Leela with his own hands, at her request: the result is a story told clumsily and not always well, but with passion and love. I can't think of a better note to end on.

Audience Reviews for Futurama: Season 5

Incredibly hilarious, Futurama enters into its fifth season as sharp and clever as ever. The satire gets especially topical, dealing with current controversial issues such as global warming, violence on T.V., and flag burning. But the show handles it all in stride, bringing a unique comedic edge that's free of political agenda. Irreverent and hard hitting, the humor delivers non-stop laughs. Additionally, there are some nice character moments, with Fry finding his long lost dog, Leela getting a second chance at a childhood, and Zoidberg embracing Earth as his new home. Yet unfortunately the voyages of the Planet Express Ship came to an end in Season 5 of Futurama, when the series was abruptly cancelled by Fox.

Season 5 is a compilation of all the Futurama films, some were good, some were bad, overall it shouldn't be classified as a season per se.
