My least favourite of the original episodes was The Honking, I think Attack of the Killer App might be my least favourite now but I've only seen it once, further viewing might change my opinion... or reinforce it!

IAGDL...almost made me not watch the rest of the new season.  Glad I did though.

Between that episode, Attack of the Killer App, and Prop Inf, that has to be the worst string of 3 episodes in a row in the show's run.

I dont like the episode when fry gets killed by the bee it was  sleep

While I feel that ep is overrated in a lot of people's eyes, I don't find it one of the worst.  But I do see how you could find it less entertaining than say, Roswell that Ends Well or The Farnsworth Parabox.

@benderrulez, you should that it's called "The Sting".
@Free Hot Meal: Yeah, not the worst... Patric Verrone is hilarious when he explains where the idea comes from, fun commentary. Also, IAGDL is 50/50% First half's good jokes and fun references, Second half, boring... Yawn...  sleep
I really thought that "Attack of the Killer App" was the best of the first 6 episodes. No one seems to agree with me... And let's not talk about Prop ∞. shudder

IAGDL....worst ending ever.  Characters felt out of character.  V-giny?  Sounded like a lame joke out of the new Family Guys (where everything has become sex/race oriented or ... well, let's just say it has been 95% trash since the movie came out).  I will admit the "think tube" made me laugh (if I am getting my episodes correct...I'm not going to rewatch that one to be sure), but that was in the first half that was decent.  Also I will admit I am a shipper. smile

Attack of the blah blah blah wasn't all that bad, but the whole singing boil think was just plain awful.  If they had left everything to do with that out, I think it would have been received much better.  Plus the goat throwing up thing went on too long for me (I wasn't watching South Park you know).

about the juvenile vag... name joke, that's my problem... I admit that I did haha a bit. But it's not that funny. But the joke is probably the only choice they could've made. V'Ger was a space probe, satellite, whatever... (Trekkies forgive me...) that combined in a energy cloud... (Once again, forgive me). Somewhat funny... tongue

The ending was just SO bad, just so bad. The episode was ruined the moment Bender hooked up with the satellite dish. Purity Chant... hmpf

I never said it was laugh-out-loud funny. I only found it to be a mildly amusing name/joke, but it annoys me when people say that something is like Family Guy or South Park or whatever just because they don't like a joke.

No...but while we're at it let's turn all the humor into poop/sex/racest jokes.  Because that is what everyone between the ages of 12-19 finds funny.  Let's not have "funny" jokes like "huh, did everything just taste purple for a second?" or "The president is choking on my gas bladder, what an honor" or "I'm going to remind Fry of his humanity in a way only a women can...your going to do his laundry?"  No, that's too complex to understand so let's have jokes like v-ginny and "Censor it!"  Does the audience need a laugh track as well to know when to laugh?  Hey, let's bring that boil back too!  That was laugh-out-loud funny.  And every episode should have at least 1 puking goat too.

Comedy is created by situations and that is why Roswell that Ends Well, etc are so funny.  The way things are said and by whom.  If you just want dull straight jokes like V-giny, then go back to watching South Park.

Did I say that I thought V-giny was the most hilarious joke ever and that all of the situational jokes in Futurama should be discarded and replaced with stuff like "V-Giny"? No, I said that it was a pretty Futurama-esque joke when you think about it and that I thought it was pretty funny. One of the things I like about Futurama is that they combine more complicated and subtle humor with immature humor.

Also, on the subject of Family Guy-esque humor: Firstly, "V-Giny" isn't actually like something that would be in Family Guy, how many people who claim that a joke they don't like is "like Family Guy" actually watch Family Guy?

And secondly, how is "I'm going to remind Fry of his humanity in a way only a women can." "You're going to do his laundry?" an example of a joke that wouldn't be likely to occur in Family Guy?

"A joke about women doing laundry? That was in the original series so it's brilliant! Ah, you'd never hear a joke like that in Family Guy..."

I agree. What the heck are you saying?

Also, as much as I still hate the singing boil...I caught Killer App again not too long ago and I was surprised at how funny everything was leading up to the boil. It was almost a classic episode. I can't call it the worst episode. Worst moment, maybe, but definitely not the worst episode. There was plenty of good stuff in there. The episode is over-hated.

I'll admit, that Attack of the Killer App was funny up until that boil scene.  The boil was what ruined it for me.  Also, Lrreconciliable Ndndiferrences would've been a good episode if not for that comic strip and if Leela wasn't caught with Lrrr.  It should've had no comic strip and ended with Lrrr and Ndnd never finding out Leela was hanging out with Lrrr.

One thing we all can agree on, is that no matter how bad we think a Futurama episode is, it's still better than what Family Guy has become.

And for the record, I used to watch Family Guy...I found out about it in HS and watched it there (someone would bring in DVDs to our Film and Lit class (there was a huge TV there) and a crowd would watch it there during lunch hour).  I could not watch that sort of stuff at home because my parents were extreme conservatives and anything like that would have been considered "evil" to them or something.  Anyway, I did not find out about Futurama until I went to college.  But back to the topic at hand, I found Family Guy funny at the time but it has steadily gone downhill (or maybe I am maturing...or both).  I found it unwatchable shortly after their big movie...Stewie's something...I forget the title.  I shifted my attention to Futurama and it has been there ever since.  I never "disliked" FG, it's just the show became stale and the jokes bad.  When I saw the start of Season 6 of Futurama, I feared they were going down the same path...but I was totally wrong (and glad of it) when TLPJF came out.

In due time we might view these episodes differently.  People have a tendency to rank what they just saw as either the best or worst ever.

\Also, as much as I still hate the singing boil...I caught Killer App again not too long ago and I was surprised at how funny everything was leading up to the boil.

That's exactly what I thought up to that point.  First half was really good.  And then the boil made it's appearance and then... hmpf

Yeahp, The Cryonic Woman is a hit.  As in, pretty much among the worst.  The first act is neat - in fact hilarious - but then it takes a turn for the worse.

Bendin' in the Wind, I like.  No, not because of Beck, I could have done without him, actually, but because the plot isn't terrible at all.  It's consistent and make sense.  And fun too.  Sure it is the classic 'something happened, but didn't really and now everything thinks it did so I have to continue to fake it' routine, but it wasn't as pathetic as most sitcoms does that sort of story.  In fact, not cringe worthy at all.

Sure the whole tour part of the story is boring and nothing really goes on, but at least it's not terrible.

I also don't get the criticism "Where the Buggalo Roam" get.  It has my favourite Zapp Brannigan line of all time and some awesome Zoidberg moments too.  The story is a decent exploration of the Kif and Amy relationship, and while I'll gladly admit that the Brannigan plot is subpar (for instance, no mention of the Leela-Zapp relationship?), it isn't terrible either.

"The Cryonic Woman"'s plot is terrible to me.  It's not funny at best, and it partly annoys you and doesn't have a decent conclusion.  It's more like just a set piece to the next for a couple of jokes and then wrapping the episode up.

For instance, "In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela" is one of the few very little rushed episodes of the new season, but I am thinking that might be in part to the fact that it almost seemed like the writers' couldn't really think of more.  'Stranded on an Eden Planet?  Okay, now what?'

When I look back at it, there is really not an episode I dislike from the first season, but as the seasons progressed, the amount of episodes I don't like or dislike have increased.  But I dunno, the second run of Futurama can still be saved.

The reason why I didn't like Fry's comic strip in Lrreconciable Ndndifferences and I now I realize my dislikingness towards it is because of this: It seemed like Fry really wanted that scenario in his comic strip to happen. And also, probably wishes Leela could really be like that.
