Futurama Lives

I just read on gotfuturama.com (which I hadn't checked in on in a while) that there may be as many as 3 direct to DVD futurama movies in the works at Fox. The original show had a good run with 72 episodes, but I heard somewhere that there was supposed to be more to the story about Fry going to the future to save the world, or something, don't really remember. Anyway, there is a good chance that DVD sales will play a role in detemining the budget for the films (if they even decide to make them). So if you don't already own them and you would like to see Futurama return with new material (and if you want the DVDs) pick up the original 4 seasons (the five airing seasons were released by production season, hence 4 sets) or even the Futurama Monster Robot Maniac Fun Collection DVD (U.S. release date is in August I think), which is less expensive than a whole season and has four great episodes.
