Thanks for clearing that up for me ^^,

He also has a self-destruction code. (When no Fan Has Gone Before) Which is useless apparently. Unless you want to just cause his head to explode.

Been getting a lot of totp lately  wtf?

"Don't you have a self-destruct button?"

"Yes... but it's on my body!"

Apparently Bender knows barely anything about himself, or he had it installed on his head after the events of "I Second That Emotion".

I have to say that, even though 'TFHS' was terrible, I found 'Gadda-De-Leela' to be the very worst episode of the series. It was desperately trying to be edgy in order to fit in with Comedy Central's other programs, had no funny jokes, and an overall horrible story. Honestly, it felt like Family Guy in Space to me.

Better than that stupid president one. Actually a good parody of 80s cartoons. But for an episode of Futurama, I agree. It doesn't stick.

I give ATPH credit for having a pretty decent middle act, but othwise I agree that it's a really poor episode.

President's Heads is definitely the worst of the Time themed episodes, mainly because of it's stupid explanation as to how they went back to colonial times (Really, it felt like they came up with it in 30 seconds), and because of how stupid the British stereotypes were (They were all rehashes of the same stereotypes I've seen in every American show dealing with England).

Shit Pit was very bad, as well, but G.I. Zapp was good enough for me to save the episode from being the very worst; however, it's still bottom 10 worthy.

Killer App is disgusting, stupid, uncreative, and overall unwatchable; While this one didn't force as many unwanted low-brow jokes at us as Gadda did, it's still horrible, and has no saving factors. The only reason I hate Gadda more is because of how stupid and brainless it was; at least this one had some thought put into it (Although it obviously was little).

I feel like the only person who liked Saturday Morning Fun Pit. frown I mean for an episode of Futurama, it's completely out of place. But to me, It was just a typical parody of 1980 cartoons. Which was pulled off quite nicely. Hell, even the characters didn't act out-of-character, and played the roles of each 80s cartoon parody quite nicely as well.

I also liked Killer App. I mean there was things I didn't like in it, of course. But I still enjoyed a few select jokes, and was entertained by the overall episode.

Yo Leela Leela, I understand the hate for this episode. I hated it ever since it aired. It was really awful, for Futurama's standards anyways. It's still entertaining TV, and beats whatever else was on by a mile. But I was disappointed in such a slapped together episode like that one.

Also, no mention for Neutopia, or even T?? Both truly awful episodes, and the only episodes I wouldn't consider good, entertaining TV.

Neutopia, was just boring. PE had Financial Issues, had an commercial airline service (what? Don't you mean something more sci-fi-ey, like an interstellar travelling service?), crashed on an extremely boring and bland planet, got Genders swapped, made nudes, magically returned back to normal by an alien. Not to mention the amount of boring Men vs Women stereotypes.

T may be my least favorite episode of the Series. Lrrr gets worse and worse every season. Most of the jokes failed pretty badly, a tad bit too many pop-cultural references, and the plot just failed to amuse. It was crap. For TV Standards, it was mediocre. But for Futurama standards, it was shit. Which is disappointing. If the series kept going on and made more episodes like these, I'd be rooting for it to end.

But yeah, just my five cents.

Although SMDM isn't my #1 favorite episode, I will admit that I think It's at least a little bit underrated. The idea of a human becoming a robot hadn't been dressed before in the series, and the episode mad good use of the concept. The episode also gave us more of a look at Hermes' life, and it's always nice to learn more about members of the Crew. The only thing I didn't really like was the way that Roberto died, but at least the spiciness of LaBarbra's food had been addressed earlier in the episode.

Sorry for going off-topic, by the way.  hmpf

Seriously, can we stop abbreviating every episode like this? It's a headache trying to remember/decipher all these initialisms, and surely it can't be saving anyone that much time typing them out. roll eyes

I usually try to only abbreviate the really long episode titles, Like The Late Phillip J. Fry or (above) The Six Million Dollar Mon, so I can save myself about 3 seconds to think about how excellent I am.

😒 Yes. That would be Free Will Hunting.


The worst episode for me is actually Lethal Inspection. I get that it's sentimental and blah blah blah, but to me the story is random. I think if they did a Bender/Hermes plot going in a different direction it would have been better. I've said this many times, but I don't think that any episode of Futurama is too appallingly bad to ever watch again.

I heartily second this. People using an acronym for every single episode is one of my biggest pet peeves. I normally only abbreviate the titles of the movies and the more notable episodes such as "The Late Philip J. Fry" (TLPJF) and "Space Pilot 3000" (SP3K).

The only episode that I don't like any part of is Yo Leela Leela. I mean, I kinda like the Slurmies (I think that's what it was called) but everything else is pure awful.

Saturday Morning Fun Pit and Naturama. It was really boring to go through those episodes, they were just amazingly boring. As of "normal" episodes, Neutopia. It got terrible towards the end.

I can't hate an episode that I find funny. Neutopia is bad in every other way, but I find it stupidly hilarious. Same reason I like Beast With a Billion Backs and Less Than Hero.

Less Than Hero wasn't trying to be anything other than hilarious, though. It seems that Neutopia and The Beast With a Billion Backs were attempting some sort of observational satire in the midst of everything, and frankly, their efforts just weren't very good.

Yikes, I don't think "Less Than Hero" should be mentioned in the same breath as either "Neutopia" or "The Beast With a Billion Backs." Don't get me wrong, I like those latter two episodes fine; however, I think LTH is one of the best episodes of the series, hands down, whereas "Neuotpia" and Billion Backs are just kind of average. I'd argue that this is because "Less Than Hero" is not aimless in its stupidity, the way "Neutopia" is; rather, it is a knowing and unapologetic send-up of Big, Dumb, Campy Superhero Movies (in the same way that Billion Backs parodies the tropes of Big, Dumb, Campy Monster Movies, to more mixed results). "Less Than Hero" goes balls-out with its stupid hilarity, and that is what makes it so damn enjoyable. Meanwhile, "Neutopia"--though not as bad as people like to make it out to be--is kind of a tired Battle of the Sexes story that was already done much better in "Into the Wild Green Yonder," and is therefore not as awesome, in my opinion. Also what Beamer said.

Oh, and I have recently decided that "2-D Blacktop" is the worst episode ever in terms of plot construction and pacing, and that the laziness of its writing is an open affront to me as a dedicated viewer (I've already pontificated on this point here). The only thing that keeps me from hating it as much as "Proposition Infinity"--which is now, and always will be, my personal Least Favorite Episode Ever--is that the drag-racing stuff on its own is mildly entertaining, and the story itself doesn't take a big ol' dump on two or three seasons' worth of established characterizations (see: Amy and Kif in PI). Still, it's a pretty lousy episode and I wouldn't mind if I never had to watch it ever again.

Don't get me wrong, Less Than Hero is my second favourite episode ever. Ever. But I think it's in the same category of episodes as Neutopia and Beast With a Billion Backs, personally.

2-D Blacktop is just inoffensive filler to me, like a Bendless Love or a Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences. I wouldn't skip it if I was marathoning through the show, but I wouldn't put in a DVD just to watch it.

I thought that Bendless Love was a pretty good episode. I certainly wouldn't call it filler, and I wouldn't lump it in with tripe like Lrreconcilable Ndndifferences and 2-D Blacktop. They're not just filler, they're actually bad.

Attack of the Killer App is my choice. As much as I love Futurama, this failed on many levels. The parodies on Apple and Twitter were forced and tired, and felt reminiscent of modern Simpsons episodes' parodies. I mean, eyePhone? Surely you can come up with better than that? The plot felt rather weak and disjointed, and the goat vomit gag was too lowbrow for Futurama in my opinion.

The Twit-worm was wasted potential, and the fact that the episode ended in the midst of that plotline annoyed me, as it just left viewers hanging, and then everything was back to normal in the next episode. The Susan Boil gag... let's just say it's the worst joke in the entire series.

There were some good jokes, but the whole thing seemed like Futurama trying to prove their relevance to new viewers... and there was Susan Boil.

Neutopia is the only episode I've ever hated. Unfunny but had a good plot line with a lot of wasted potential. However, I've still got to see Naturama and all the episodes after it, so my opinion might change.
