PEE Poll: Who's The Best Writer on Futurama? (Among Writers of Two or Fewer Episodes).
David A. Goodman
Mike Rowe
Evan Gore & Heather Lombard
Jason Gorbett & Scott Kirby
Eric Rogers
Darin Henry
Brian Kelley
Carolyn Premish
Maiya Williams
Indeed, Jeff wrote more than two episodes *disregard*
Well, this poll has had some errors and flaws, but now it's good.
And, I'm just adding him, finally... Matt Groening.

I'm going with David X. Cohen as he's the showrunner and you know, polishes up all of the scripts. And his joke injections are usually pretty good -you get a good sense of his joke-writing skills.

Also, his credited episodes aren't half-bad.

@Futurama_Freak1: Yeah, the poll consists of writers of three or more episodes. That's why Mike Rowe, Eric Rogers, Carolyn Premish, Maiya Williams, Kristen Gore, etc. isn't on the poll. I'm thinking about making a poll with them later.

Oh!  I met Kristin Gore once.  Yeah, it was at a bookstore once, in July 2007, shortly before I joined PEEL.  She was on a book tour, promoting some novel she wrote, and what I did was I went there and hung around while she was giving her talk, browsing the books and such, and then went up to her once she was done signing autographs for people and started burbling about Futurama.  She was pretty nice.  She talked to me for about ten minutes.  She probably already knew at that time that she wasn't going to be coming back as a staff writer again..

Also Dan Vebber went to my college.


As for other writers, well Keeler wrote two of my favorite episodes, Time Keeps on Skippin' and Prisoner of Benda, but then again he also wrote BBS, so I wouldn't necessarily go with him....
Most of the above are all right.

Ken Keeler has written most of my favourite episodes, plus the best Futurama movies so I voted for him as the overall best.

Yeah, I made the poll a little wrong, because Matt is credited with 3 stories: Space Pilot 3000, Rebirth & In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela. There wasn't room for him, so I had to drop him.

I think I'm the only one here who actually liked In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela, despite the 2nd half being worse than the first. I guess you could call it the Season 6's "Cryonic Woman" for me. :P

You are so right, the first half was pretty good, the V-Chip, Cape Kenievel. I just thought it was becoming bad from Amy's orgy part. I just don't think that it belongs in Futurama.

Popular here, he's not as popular among some of the "Simpsons" fans, after what he "did" by writing "The Principal and the Pauper".

The poll says "Among writers of two or less episodes".

I'm resisting the urge to edit that to replace "less" with "fewer". Barely.

I voted for Jeff Westbrook, but I feel the need to point out that he wrote three episodes: The Day the Earth Stood Stupid, The 30% Iron Chef and Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles so surely he shouldn't be included in this poll at all.

David A. Goodman would be my second choice followed by Maiya Williams.

The poll says "of two or fewer episodes."

That makes Ken ineligible for this particular poll. I think the title should be changed to reflect this, actually. I came in all ready to vote for Keeler and then saw that the poll was all... different.

It was originally a thread with a poll about people who've written 3 or more episodes but the OP changed the poll instead of starting a new thread.

Ken Keeler won last time, by the way.

Well, on that note Rogers won't be on here for long. Considering he's written 1.3 episodes, if you add 2.5 more, well, you do the math! big grin
