I had seen Futurama before, but it was when I was young and I didn't really remember it, so the next time I went to Best Buy I picked up volume 3.  I have been hooked ever since.
It was Anthology of Interest II.

I can't remember how old I was, but I'm pretty sure it was when Futurama was still airing in its regular run, though I don't remember the episode. I was over at my cousins' and they were watching it and I just remember thinking it was really stupid, not funny, and I didn't get why Leela had only one eye and it pissed me off (so I must've been fairly young then).

The second episode I watched, a few years later, was Amazon Women in the Mood which I thought was absolutely hysterical and I loved it. The third was The Luck of the Fryrish and that sealed it for me.

I must have been years ago, around 2000/2001 but I really can't remember which episode I saw first.

I only really starting getting into Futurama when I got the Season One DVD boxset for a birthday about five or six years ago, before then I'd only ever seen the odd episode on TV - but it was enough to spark my interest.

If I had to hazard a guess I'd say that Loves Labour's Lost in Space was the first episode I ever saw. The only episodes I can remember seeing on TV before acquiring any of the DVDs were Loves Labours, A Bicyclops Built for Two, A Clone of My Own and Time Keeps on Slippin' so I'm guessing it was Loves Labours based on that.

Really enjoyed it though but it wasn't until I got the DVDs and watched them in some sort of order that I realised just what a great show Futurama is.

Similar to what happened to me. I saw "Parasites Lost"  and thought this is pretty funny....then a few days later I saw "Fryrish". That one totally blew me away.

The first Futurama I saw was the second half of A Pharoah to Remember.  I guess that had to have been back in the summer of '04, because I remember that it was right before I started my freshman year of college.  By the time the episode was over I was so confused I didn't know quite what to think.  Somehow I got it into my head that Bender was the captain..

Same here.  Hard to believe that it's been almost ten years.

What was your first episode?
