Good news everyone! This week's light list of new releases includes more Futurama on DVD.

Futurama 6
After being prematurely axed by Fox, Futurama fought its way back to the airwaves, first through a series of direct-to-DVD movies and then by a 26-episode order by Comedy Central. These 13 episodes make up the second half of that bonus season and find the crew of Planet Express -- the 30th Century's most accident-prone interplanetary delivery service -- embarking on such adventures as hunting a four-dimensional space whale and traveling back in time to the American Revolution. And, in the immortal words of Professor Farnsworth: Good news everyone! Futurama will return for another 26-episode run in 2012.
Extras: Audio commentaries on every episode, deleted scenes, an FAQ (that's "Frequently Axed Questions," by the way) and two additional featurettes.

One Tree Hill: The Complete Eighth Season
Presidents have changed, business have started and gone bust and countless shows have been cancelled and yet The CW's One Tree Hill still bravely soldiers on. Eight seasons into its run, the show has shed most of its original cast members (including Chad Michael Murray, whom it was essentially built around), but Sophia Bush and James Lafferty are kicking around the small town of Tree Hill. In Season 8, Lafferty's character Nathan embarks on a new career as a sports agent, while Bush's Brooke gets hitched and becomes a mom. Believe it or not, there's still one more year left to go. The show comes back for its ninth and final season in January.
Extras: Commentary on two episodes, unaired scenes and two behind-the-scenes documentaries.
