They’re all good episodes, but I just like Why of Fry best. Explains some of the secrets in the pilot episode.

Those kinds of episodes are cool, but I prefer parody-esque or satirical episodes, like that of Rosswell Tthat Ends Well.

I voted for Roswell that Ends Well.  I love all these episodes, but Parasites Lost has too narrow a focus, and TWoF has that annoying time plot-hole that DXC couldn't be asked to make sensible.  Devil's Hands was much closer, but I voted against it on the basis that I'd have liked to see more of the non-Fry and Leela characters, given that it was the apocryphal series finale.

Also, RTEW was funnier, in spite of my love for musical episodes.

Roswell came outta nowhere!

I voted for Devil's Hands (a few days ago).

3 of the 4 episodes are Fry/Leela episodes, and one is Fry/Mildred - so much love

I also voted for The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings.  What can I say, I like ridiculously circuitous plans.

And the ad-libbed opera took 'What's Opera, Doc?' to the next level.

Yes! The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings is drawing again.

Wouldn't it be nice if all four episodes drew? I think it would, that way there wouldn't be a loser (except the other 68 episodes).

Indeed I won't have it. If it is between two or three, new poll. If all four are tied, the first two to receive a certain amount of votes get into a new, tie-breaker final.

Well, congrats "Roswell That Ends Well". Even though "The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings" got screwed, life is life.
I shall now move on to things that I should actually be concerned with, like my summer homework! *Hurrah for summer homework!

Well, yet another Survivor ends. This time around Roswell beat out The Devil's Hands by one vote. With voting officially over, I think it's time for the closing of the thread. Any last thoughts on the results before a mod closes this? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

How many of these survivors have there been, and how often are they conducted? And why can't there be one for other shows?

Other shows? Well because this is the General Discussion section of a Futurama message board.

Take it to the TV Forum if you want to try it.

I forgot who, but someone tried to do a 'Family Guy' Episode Survivor, and the thread got closed. I don't understand why.

What? On this board? There have been only 2 of theses Survivor things. One was Futurama episode survivor (this one), and one was Futurama character survivor. i_c_weiner invented this method of survivor, and he made both. If someone tried to make a Family Guy survivor here, then everybody would be confused because not everyone here is a Family Guy nerd. When you start making game threads about other shows on a single-show forum, you know you've gone too far. Take it too the Family Guy forums.

Yes. I totally agree with you GTW. But, since I haven't been on as long as you, I've seen just this one Episode survivor....

I believe JDB tried the Family Guy Episode Survivor, but Nix shut it down with something along the lines of "No".

For Eyedol's questions, there have only been two of this type of Survivors on PEEL. There has been Character Survivor polls in the way-back-when-Futurama-was-new times with Kryten I believe, but there hasn't been anything like that other than Fall Madness. This method was formulated by myself with inspiration by the Video Game Console Survivors on the g4tv.com forum. The spacing between this Survivor and Character was about two months from Character's end to Episode's beginning. The Survivors themselves range from 65 days with Character to only 47 with Episode. What's next? Well, I'm trying to organize the Line Survivor, though that is going to be quite different, but it will probally be up in Octoberish.
