There are three featurette videos included. The first is "Professor Farnsworth's 'Science of a Scene'" (17:10), which is more of a standard making-of — detailing some of the steps involved with a scene from "Overclockwise" — bookended by voiceovers from Professor Farnsworth. Next up is "Reincarnation Explained" (6:46), where director Peter Avanzino discusses the inspiration behind the different animation styles used in the season finale. Finally, various crew members pitch in to answer fan questions in "Futurama F.A.Q. (Frequently Axed Questions)" (11:27), although, unfortunately answers are a bit corny and hit-and-miss as it looks like they were just made up on the spot.
The packaging is basically the same as Volume 5, with a cardboard slipcase housing a cardboard inlay for both discs. It's not optimal and is highly prone to damaged artwork and scratchy discs, but I guess the "future-friendly" decision makers at Fox once again won out.
But the episodes themselves are the real draw here — and, for the most part, things still hold together well. Although not as immediate and energetic in pacing and humor as Volume 5, there are some real gems in this set. Some episodes often strive for higher nerd quotient and it's usually at the expense of more general laughs (think of the four hiatus movies for an example). But hopefully the overriding balance of the past will be regained for the next season.
