epic fail.  The voter has spliced together a ballot from about 10 votes ago with the current tally for Devil's Hands.  There's no effin way this should be taken seriously until the voter fixes it him/herself, 'cause I seriously can't tell if it's real or a joke.

That wasn't intentional and I didn't sleep at all tonight...

This isn't something frivolous like a presidential election...I wagered $50 at even odds that the final spread would be >= 2.

So that 'break' that was to occur after an episode had been voted off wasn't even a half-hour break? Oh, well then...

New Rules
1. All rules remain the same except what's listed below.
2. The remaining four have had their tallies reduced so the least voted against episode has 0 tallies.
--a) Please note that Roswell has 5 so whoever should space the next tally against it.
3. An episode requires 16 votes to be voted off.
4. There will be a break when the next episode has been voted off.

I'm no longer in a rush to kill off any episode now. They're all pretty good (though I'm surprised that "Insane in the Mainframe" made it this far). Heck, even "The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings" is deserving to be in the top fifteen.

I'm surprised by your surprise when it comes to "Insane in the Mainframe". That episode is easily in my top ten; it demonstrates everything that's great about Futurama. You have a compelling story that is both hilarious and kind of dark (Fry's whole "I'm not a robot!" mental breakdown thing is kind of intense, by sci-fi cartoon standards); and there's some nice, organic ship that doesn't consume the episode; and there are homicidal robots. That's really all I require, as a highly sophisticated viewer.

The problem with iPod touch is you can't copy and paste so I can't vote now. Be voting in a few hours but send my rather sarcastic regards to Steve Jobs.

By my own standards, I'm not really surprised since that was a superb episode. I was acknowledging the fact that it gets little attention. It's certainally not a homerunner episode like "Jurassic BarK", "The Why of Fry", or "Parasites Lost", but it was still really good. It just seems that episodes like "Love and Rocket" and "Insane in the Mainframe" get lost among those headliners. Despite that they may be better than those great episode, they just don't leave the same impression and therefore are left unnoticed.

P.S.: For the record, "Insane in the Mainframe" is better than "Love and Rocket". Sheerly based on the funny factor.

Completely agree, and it's been my favorite of the episodes left for a while now, even before this round I think. Much like TKOS, IITM has got a bit of everything. It's pretty much always in my random top 20 episodes or so. Plus even reading the transcript [which I've done] is still funny. GO INSANE IN THE MAINFRAME, wooo.

It just seems that episodes like "Love and Rocket" and "Insane in the Mainframe" get lost among those headliners. Despite that they may be better than those great episode, they just don't leave the same impression and therefore are left unnoticed.

Not by me.

I can't really rate Love and Rocket with the other eps you listed above.  Most of the first 15 minutes or so (esp. Fry's quest for the perfect candy heart) made me cringe.  The epilogue is brilliant though, what with the string music, quasar, and Zoidberg's narration.

By the way, did Fry know that he'd start to suffer irreversible brain damage if he'd gone without O2 for more than a minute or so?  Would it have mattered if he did?

Apparently he did, since he surely wouldn't vote for the same ep in consecutive voting periods.
