The Honking for me. Just because it's a silly, dare I say cartoonish, concept. It was still funny though.

Even though I do rather like that episode, I'd agree that the were-car situation is indeed a bit too farfetched.

When I first saw it i really hated (well as much as you can hate futurama) Futurestock but know i like it so now i'd say Insane in the Mainframe

Aw, shoot, I love "Insane in the Mainframe." But I do agree that "Future Stock" is one of those episodes that sort of grows on you, simply because it's so un-sci-fi (the stock market in the year 3000--big flippin' deal), and it takes a few viewings to get used to that. It's definitely one of the more underrated episodes, though. (I believe a few of us actually discussed that point in the "Best Episode Ever" thread. Damn, are we nerds.)

I showed a clip of Insane the in Mainframe in grade 12 for a prestentation. It was something about One Flew Over the Cuckoo's nest, I also showed the Simpsons clip where they parodied that. I dropped the remote once and that was really embarrassing.

You mean "Stark Raving Dad"? 'Cause I really love that episode of The Simpsons, too. Perhaps I just have an inborn appreciation of episodes that explore mental illness. Can't imagine why that would be...

I always really enjoyed "Future Stock" because it has some really memorable one liners and seeing Fry's transformation into and 80's business jerk makes me laugh. Best line in the episode definitely has to be "Hey Mom look at my butt!"

I noticed someone on this thread mentioned Umbriel.  In the episode, "The Deep South", which is one of my favorites, Fry kind of reminded me of Don Knotts in The Incedible Mr. Limpet.   

Fry fell in love with a female sea creature, as did Mr. Limpet
Fry wanted to live in the sea just like Mr. Limpet did. 
All his friends thought he was crazy, just as Mr. Limpet's wife and his friend thought he was as well. 
Fry also had a crab friend (Zoidberg) who lived in the sea, and Mr. Limpet's friend was a crab.

Well, off that Deep South reference, I'd like to mention three episodes that I like, but don't like the endings to (all happen to be from S2).

The Deep South, The Problem With Popplers, and The Cryonic Woman.

My main problems with these episodes is that they all end in unbelievable ways for me. In the first and third Fry decides to abandon his life in NNY for no adequate reason (for me). I mean, we all know that no matter what a reset button is going to be hit and everything will return to normal, but that's no excuse to have a character perform a completely illogical action. Why the hell would Fry abandon NNY (and his entire new life there) for two female characters who weren't interesting in the first place? It's too much of a stretch for me.

On TPWP, I never liked the ending because it's a lucky break. Out of nowhere, Jrrr comes in and saves Leela from being eaten by Lrrr. It's just so written. I mean, the kid seemingly comes from nowhere (they could have at least had Leela mention that she brought him or something) and Fry and Bender to nothing to save their friend. The writers couldn't have done anything else? They couldn't have had Fry go and get Jrrr as a backup plan to the Orangutan failing? I know this one seems needlessly picky, but it always sours the end of the episode for me.

It's just hard to believe the woman who did the voice for Dot of The Animaniacs also does Mom's.

I was born in Marietta myself. A pity they couldn't put in a reference to the miserable beltway highway.

I would say Cryonic woman, but fry keeps that episode together.
I would have to say teenage mutant leelas hurdles, but by no means does this mean I hate this episode, I would take this over any family guy episode.

I'll agree on the Cryonic Woman but TMLH is one of my favorites because it defines Leela's strength of character beautifully.She is urged by the professor to let them perish in the fountain, and she does think about it for a few seconds,but she selflessly plunges into the fountain extends her hand and pulls most to safety.
This shpw apart from the humor exhibited is great because of the everyday (lifesaving) heroism shown by the characters.
This shows us the right thing to do.Many of us will never be called to make the tough decisions but Futurama shows what true friendship is all about.

And of course that's Tress MacNeille.
If you are going to give her a namecheck,at least spell it correctly.

The guy clearly has no idea about the show, no idea how to use the internet and more than likely no idea where he is.

Anyone who is going to come on to a forum about a show which has been cancelled for 5 years will be big fans who will atleast know who the stars of the show are (or so i thought until this guy came along)

Yeah, "Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles" is one of my favorite episodes, too. I like how it utilizes the entire PE crew to a certain extent, but also keeps itself grounded emotionally when it comes to Leela, her relationship with her parents, and what was essentially her lost childhood.

OK, everyone to a neutral corner.  Please remember that Willsterdude3000 is, like, 10 years old.  He's opinionated, but also enthusiastic about the series; this forum is for people like him that love Futurama.  It's our job to show him the ropes regarding what to say & how to say it, while not discouraging him.  So, I say, "keep posting little dude".  Just try to remember that many of us here have been fans (and some of us have been posting here) almost as long as you've been alive; most of us are hardcore fans that know the cast & a lot of the trivia already...

I dont believe hes 10 years old, he wouldnt understand half the things in the show...... wait a minute. Also many people on several occasions have tried to help him understand the rules (not me because im only new aswell and well i get annoyed easily and hes extremly infuriating). Surely you have to consider everyone elses sanity when you use the internet, maybe when hes older and knows how to work a computer then he should consider interacting with people online.

I'm going off his profile, which shows 10 years old.  If he's a lot older, then he needs to grow up quickly.

Back on topic.  I've thought long & hard about this, but I can't come up with a "worst" episode.  I think all the Futurama episodes are still heads & tails way better than anything on TV right now; great dialog (just reading some of the scripting makes me laugh out loud), hilarious voice characterizations, awesome animation.  I guess, if I had to pick one I like least, it would be "The Cryonic Woman"...
