I have just attempted the impossible, by ranking all 100 episodes of Futurama from favourite to least favourite. It took quite some time, and quite some thought, but I think I've decided on my list.

There may be some shocks for people on certain episodes ranking low/high, but just remember - everyone watches Futurama for different reasons. Each to their own and all that. So feel free to post your own lists as it may be interesting to see where some eps rank with people.

So yeah, here's my list, with the new series eps in bold.
(Note - The movies take up 4 positions each, as each is 4 parts)

1 - The Prisoner Of Benda
2 - The Late Philip J. Fry
3 - A Clockwork Origin
4 - Teenage Mutant Leela’s Hurdles
5 - A Flight To Remember
6 - That Darn Katz!
7 - A Fishful Of Dollars
8 - Fry And The Slurm Factory
9 - When Aliens Attack
10 - Xmas Story
11 - Parasites Lost
12 - The Duh-Vinci Code
13 - The Farnsworth Parabox
14 - A Bicyclops Built For Two
15 - My Three Suns
16 - Amazon Women In The Mood
17 - Put Your Head On My Shoulder
18 - A Clone Of My Own
19 - The Deep South
20 - A Tale Of Two Santas
21 - The Luck Of The Fryish
22 - Time Keeps On Slippin’
23 - Kif Gets Knocked Up A Notch
24 - Roswell That Ends Well
25 - The Sting
26 - Why Must I Be A Crustacean In Love?
27 - Love’s Labours Lost In Space
28 - Bendin’ In The Wind
29 – The Honking
30 – The Series Has Landed
31 - I, Roommate
32 - The Day The Earth Stood Stupid

36 - The Cyber House Rules
37 - Rebirth
38 - The Problem With Popplers
39 - Anthology Of Interest I

71 - The Birdbot Of Ice-Catraz
72 - The Devil’s Hands Are Idle Playthings
73 - In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela
74 - Crimes Of The Hot
75/76/77/78 - Bender’s Game (Parts 1-4)
79 - Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences
80 - Spanish Fry
81 - Obsoletely Fabulous
82 - Love And Rocket
83 - I Dated A Robot

Go back and watch all the seasons, so you will come to your senses and realize this is an awful list.

Top 3 in season 6? Oh my sweet penguin guru ancestor of the pacific dairy farm in Jerusalem. What is the world coming to?

I'm going to focus on the bottom half. Godfellas bottom and 41 episodes (including Devil's hands?!?!?!?! WTF?!?!?!) are worse than Cryonic Woman?!?

Your list is bad and you should feel bad!

But then you were expecting abuse, weren't you? Any such list is bound to provoke it.

In Jarvio's defence, season 6 has actually been pretty good and The Late Phillip J. Fry and The Prisoner of Benda are awesome episodes. But yeah, having Godfellas at the bottom pretty much makes the whole list void anyway...

Applauding the initiative to do this, since I don't think I could ever pick most over others. I just know Cryonic Women is last and The Luck of the Fryrish is first.

I'm not getting defensive, I just get a little annoyed when people try to imply that my opinion is void. Things like this are so subjective, but some people here seem to think it's objective.

But anyway, thanks for applauding my initiative to make the list. It was extremely difficult. As for the cryonic woman, I never thought it was that bad. I actually really like all the episodes on my list up to approximately number 79

In were back baby!'s defence, his opinion about season 6 has already been made up for him and he hates it.  Regardless of what it contains.

Doublepost and getting defensive, tsk tsk.

Maybe something useful then?  Like a general consensus list?  That might actually be interesting.

Could not have stated it any better myself.  People get so worked up at times thinking what they JUST saw was the best ever...but to each his own.



I just started a "group consensus" episode list thread...vote there, and let's start a group list.

Thanks Svip for the idea! smile

Svip I actually was pleased with futurama's return was not a big fan of the first five episodes and that darn katz but I actually liked all the others especially The prisoner of benda just would not rank them in top 10. Good season give it a 7.5.

Cyber Turnip's list is pretty good. Might have to fire up excel, devise a ranking system complete with tiebreak formulae and throw my head into the ring. When my vacation is over, obviously.

Jarvio: There's nothing wrong with putting the new episodes in the Top 10. The Prisoner of Benda is definitely Top 5 for me, and The Late Philip J. Fry gets into my Top 10. But to have 5 of the Top 12 being new episodes doesn't seem right. I liked That Darn Katz!, but no way it's in the Top 10. And to put it 6th but put Jurassic Bark 56th? You should've mulled this over more.

And cyber_turnip, you're really going to rank Bender's Game Parts 3 and 4 so highly? Parts 1 and 2 were the good parts of that movie. Once it got into the fantasy world, the movie did a total bellyflop.


I'll do my definitive list later, but so far:

Sure, it's a high feat to create the ultimate list with which everybody agrees for a show with such a fervent following, but so far I only think Mongo's gotten close to the definitive rankings.

Most of part 3 is set outside of Cornwood and I wouldn't say part 4 is rated that highly. It's pretty much bang in the middle, making it 'average'. I didn't think it was awful, it just wasn't amazing.

Data and calculations got thrown out halfway through. So do your own list your own way. tongue Series 6 episodes bolded to show quality distribution of the new eps.

I say calculations got thrown out but really I just decided to tweak things when I wasn't happy with the overall standing of an episode. I rated them out of 5 on animation, story, "heart" (squishy emotions or shippiness), rewatchability, and my overall enjoyment of the episode. Then converted that score out of 25 into a percentage and perhaps adjusted it by a point or two to fit. Tiebreaking was simply a matter of which episodes I felt deserved to be ranked higher, and the movies received the mean average of their component parts.

I'm happy with the list. It's a good one, IMNSHO.

Compare your list to mine, and then kill yourselves! tongue

Wow...it's interesting to see how people can rank episodes so differently.  For example, The Problem with Popplers is ranked here anywhere between 8 and 52!

I guess this goes to show you people have their own tastes.

You know what would be great?  If Futurama would allow the fans (ie us and others) to write the script for 1 episode through forums....obviously written on a consensus nature.  That could be great....Or, this would just create utter pandemonium and ciaos.  It would be interesting to see if this happened, where that episode would fall on our lists.

Jarvio: There's nothing wrong with putting the new episodes in the Top 10. The Prisoner of Benda is definitely Top 5 for me, and The Late Philip J. Fry gets into my Top 10. But to have 5 of the Top 12 being new episodes doesn't seem right. I liked That Darn Katz!, but no way it's in the Top 10. And to put it 6th but put Jurassic Bark 56th? You should've mulled this over more.

I mulled it over as much as I could. Just because Jurassic Bark is such a critically acclaimed ep, doesn't mean everybody will think it's one of the best. As I said, many people watch Futurama for different reasons.

Sure, it's a high feat to create the ultimate list with which everybody agrees for a show with such a fervent following, but so far I only think Mongo's gotten close to the definitive rankings.

I didn't intend for anyone to agree with my list. This is MY list, just as your list is YOURS. Also, there is no such thing as "definitive rankings" because it's all opinion, why can't people see this? Mongo got close to YOUR rankings, not the 'definitive' as there's no such thing.

Honestly, I don't know why so many people are offended by my list. I didn't expect people to agree with it, which is fine. But to actually be offended? This is not aimed just at you by the way i_c_weiner, it's aimed at many who have posted here

Prisoner of Benda?  Really?  I thought that was a pretty bland episode.  Godfellas at the bottom?  You're crazy.

Not crazy, just has an opinion like everyone else in the world.
I actually think Attack of the Killer App took a beating here. It may not be a top 10, but I think there were some funny parts in it. MHO.

If I actually do a list like this, I'll just rate the episodes out of ten, then sort them in bunches.

I have entered all six (so far) lists onto a spreadsheet (minus the movies, which are treated differently in the individual lists, either worth four spots, one spot, or no spots at all) and took a straight average of the six listed positions of each particular episode.

The top ten and bottom ten episodes by that method:

1. Roswell that Ends Well (5.67 -- 1, 1, 1, 2, 5, 24)
2. The Late Philip J. Fry (5.83 -- 2, 2, 3, 6, 7, 15)
3. The Luck of the Fryrish (8.00 -- 1, 2, 3, 7, 14, 21)
4. The Farnsworth Parabox (8.67 -- 4, 4, 7, 12, 12, 13)
5. Time Keeps On Slippin' (15.17 -- 5, 6, 8, 22, 24, 26)
6. The Prisoner of Benda (15.83 -- 1, 4, 12, 20, 25, 33)
7. Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles (16.33 -- 4, 9, 13, 21, 25, 26)
8. Parasites Lost (17.50 -- 3, 9, 11, 11, 13, 58)
9. Jurassic Bark (18.83 -- 4, 6, 9, 16, 30, 48)
10. The Why of Fry (20.67 -- 5, 8, 11, 14, 27, 59)


75. Spanish Fry (66.17 -- 57, 65, 65, 68, 70, 72)
76. A Pharaoh to Remember (66.33 -- 57, 57, 57, 64, 80, 83)
77. In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela (66.50 -- 30, 65, 72, 72, 80, 80)
78. Bendless Love (67.67 -- 50, 61, 70, 73, 73, 79)
79. Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences (68.33 -- 56, 67, 68, 69, 74, 76)
80. A Leela of Her Own (70.00 -- 35, 74, 74, 76, 79, 82)
81. Where the Buggalo Roam (70.17 -- 34, 67, 78, 79, 81, 82)
82. The Cryonic Woman (74.50 -- 51, 66, 77, 77, 83, 84)
83. That's Lobstertainment! (75.67 -- 54, 77, 77, 79, 83, 84)
84. Attack of the Killer App (79.50 -- 60, 82, 83, 84, 84, 84)

I will likely post the entire "combined list", once there are a few more personal lists posted on this thread, for greater statistical meaningfulness.

Just finished my rankings. They're very different from everybody else's. Big differences seem to be:
  • I rank The Late Philip J. Fry, Space Pilot 3000, Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles, and other "big name" episodes lower than everybody else.
  • I rank The Farnsworth Parabox, War Is the H-Word, Where No Fan Has Gone Before, and The Beast with a Billion Backs relatively high.
  • I put Bender's Game pretty low comparatively.

I started by ranking the episodes from newest to oldest. This may explain why some of the new episodes are grouped so closely. I thought this method would've given them a better shot at being ranked fairly because I wouldn't have gotten all nostalgic before ranking them. My average Season 6 ranking is 40.333, so that puts the season as a whole as above average! I didn't sit down and do the math on the other seasons because I don't have the time right now, but I can quickly see that I ranked the movies a bit past above average (34.25 average).

I redid the spreadsheet, adding each of the movies as a single episode (in the personal lists that gave each movie 4 ranking spots, I took the average rank for each movie), and added i_c_weiner's list for a total of seven personal lists.

1. Roswell That Ends Well (5.0000 -- 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 5, 24)
2. The Late Philip J. Fry (6.5714 -- 2, 2, 3, 6, 7, 9, 17)
3. The Luck of the Fryrish (7.2857 -- 1, 2, 3, 3, 7, 7, 21)
4. The Farnsworth Parabox (8.2857 -- 4, 4, 5, 8, 12, 12, 13)
5. The Prisoner of Benda (14.5714 -- 1, 2, 4, 12, 21, 25, 37)
6. Time Keeps On Slippin' (14.7143 -- 5, 6, 8, 8, 22, 24, 30)
7. Parasites Lost (16.1429 -- 3, 7, 9, 11, 12, 13, 58)
8. Jurassic Bark (18.0000 -- 4, 6, 9, 11, 16, 30, 50)
9. The Why of Fry (18.8571 -- 5, 6, 8, 11, 14, 27, 61)
10. The Sting (19.1429 -- 3, 4, 10, 25, 25, 31, 36)
11. Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles (20.8571 -- 4, 9, 13, 21, 27, 29, 43)
12. Anthology of Interest I (21.2857 -- 14, 15, 18, 19, 20, 24, 39)
13. A Clockwork Origin (24.2857 -- 3, 18, 22, 25, 32, 32, 38)
14. Where No Fan Has Gone Before (24.8571 -- 5, 8, 15, 16, 19, 26, 85)
15. The Day the Earth Stood Stupid (25.0000 -- 9, 11, 15, 28, 32, 34, 46)

41. Bender's Big Score (43.1429 -- 20, 23, 42, 48, 51, 59, 59)
46. Bender's Game (46.5714 -- 14, 16, 19, 53, 69, 71, 84)
50. The Beast With a Billion Backs (49.4286 -- 21, 22, 49, 52, 60, 60, 82)
57. Into the Wild Green Yonder (53.0000 -- 7, 43, 47, 50, 61, 80, 83)

84. A Leela of Her Own (75.1429 -- 35, 77, 78, 80, 83, 86, 87)
85. That's Lobstertainment! (75.4286 -- 54, 56, 80, 81, 82, 87, 88)
86. Where the Buggalo Roam (75.5714 -- 38, 70, 81, 83, 85, 86, 86)
87. The Cryonic Woman (79.4286 -- 53, 69, 86, 86, 87, 87, 88)
88. Attack of the Killer App (83.4286 -- 64, 83, 86, 87, 88, 88, 88)

Two things I noticed about this list:  The top three episodes are Fry episodes, and the two Harlem Globetrotter episodes are ranked consecutively at #5 and #6, just below the "Big Four".

I actually haven't seen anyone being "offended" by your list, just disagreeing with it. The only one getting offended here is you.

I ranked it 34th out of 88 episodes/movies. That puts it squarely in the top half of episodes. I think that's sufficient love right there.

Two things I noticed about this list:  The top three episodes are Fry episodes, and the two Harlem Globetrotter episodes are ranked consecutively at #5 and #6, just below the "Big Four".
I would call the classical "Big Four" episodes to be The Luck of the Fryish, Roswell That Ends Well, The Why of Fry, and The Sting. The Late Philip J. Fry could be a new addition to those. There never really seemed to be a consensus classical Big Four for the more comedic episodes, but I always thought that War Is The H-Word and The Farnsworth Parabox were always in that elite group. The Prisoner of Benda would be the new addition there.

I have always loved How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back. I am happy to see other people liked it.  I would not say it was the most amazing episode, but it always brings a smile to my face.  So many good jokes and great energy.  I only wish they could make a Zoidberg episode that good.
