The Season 2 episodes originally aired from November 21th 1999 to December 3rd 2000 on FOX in the USA. With 19 episodes, it was the first full season for the show. Many fans currently see this season as plainly the best. Gems include "Xmas Story" in which SantaBot comes to town to see who was naughty, "The Problem with Popplers" with a weird twist and "Anthology of Interest I" where the authors show us three "what if?" stories - the equivalent to the treehouse of horror episode of The Simpsons.
This Futurama DVD set is a must-have.
