Yo

I found "Series has landed" bad. It stick too much to the "fry in future" theme, which is quite boring.

but the very worst episode is "Big piece of garbage". Its really the biggest piece of garbage i ever seen in TV, this episode just annoyes me.

The reason why s/o could find "Crust. in love" the worst episode is imho that he identifies too much with the story. i mean its damn sad, poor loser zoidie doesnt get the girl, but i find its very funny. especially the violent end is quite funny. Maybe someone identifies with the loser and is upset that the loser doesnt get the girl. Ok, it wasnt that good an episode, but i use to laugh about myself  smile

But the only place i could laugh in "Series has landed" was when the "whalers on the moon" song is sung, haha whalers on the moon, my ass

"Raging Bender" was too good too, but that may be because its the prime female identificationer (leela) who's succesful...

Mars university is an episode who only people may find funny who watched enough of these 80' flics. Too many references, so who didnt look these kind of movies, will not find that episode too funny. btw, the Simpsons had a similiar one, when Homer goes to university with nerds...

"The Cryonic Woman" hurt a little in a place a former girl was. Besides, I found it a nice episode. not too funny, but interesting because of the topic.

I find "War is an H word" not too interesting. But maybe just too much boring (w/o blood and guts and stuff) violence. But i had very much it was kinda standard episode, nothing special at all.

Anthology of Interest I, the 3rd part, was bad. Hawking in a pizza shop, my ass...

Head in the polls is moderate. But its worth to see Fry and Leela in those Ninja Suits

What against Cubert? Hes just an arrogant child with a small wiener...

Lotsa writing? Gheez. And pauly shore IS annoying.

I think that these are the worst episodes starting with the worst:
1. Fear of a Bot Planet (too many robot jokes, quite annoying)
2. The Lesser of Two Evils (they build up to the end and then it turns out Bender stole the atom and they promptly forget about the whole incident - what the hell was that?)
3. Mars University (Guenter, and was it just me or was it exactly Like "Homer Goes to College"?)
How anyone can say that "Love's Labours...", "War is the H Word", "A Head in the Polls" or "Anthology of Interest" are the worst episode is amazing. They're some of the best episodes. And just because "A Clone of my Own" had Cubert in it I don't think it was bad. It was still very funny and great special effects.

Damn straight! "War is the H-word" and "A clone of my own" are some of the very best episodes ever!

After reviewing the episodes over and over again, I think "A bicyclops built for two" and "The cryogenic woman" are two of the worst episodes.
They suffer from the same problem as "Why must I be a crustacean in love?" does; A fantastic first couple of minutes, but the rest is just such a huge anti-climax.

"A Head in the Polls" It's got Nixon's head on a giant robot body rampaging through Washington DC - what more do you want?  Look at my sig for some great lines from that ep.

"A Clone of My Own" Funny just for one line - "Look! It's the Near-Death Star!"  Cubert almost negates it, though.

"Brannigan Begins Again" and "Love's Labour" Can't stand Zapp - one of the most annoying characters.

"War is the H-Word"  Lots of toilet humor - "Balls thoroughly licked"

I was defending 3 episodes that I didn't think were the worst, and I guess I should carify - I hate "Brannigan Begins Again," because I can't stand Zapp or Kyp.  Same goes for Love's Labor.  My two votes for worst episode.

Toilet humor is like good food - early and often.  At least in context.

And whats wrong with toilet humor?
I am getting sick of these kind of people who think they're above toilet humor.
Most episodes with zapp in them are classics, Brannagan begins again and War is the H word are both in my top 5.

Now I'm not shy of some toilet humor, I'm a big fan of South Park and have been since its pilot episode.  BUT in Futurama I do get turned off by it b/c I think of Futurama as a smarter sci/fi comedy and when they go to the toilet for most jokes it seems Famliy Guyesque.  I also liked Family Guy too but that is a clear example of over using toilet humor to where it wasn't a lastable show.

Just MY opinion
---Baz

edit** I did like Brannigan Begin Again though, funny parody of the Midnight Cowboy was classic.

"The honking wasn't that good, by "Cryogenic woman" (or so) was the worst episode so far for me.

Well I guess it had no chance becoming one of my favourites, because I really hated the idea of Michelle coming to the future.

Definitely 'Bendless Love' just not the one I'd watch over and over. (and I do watch them over and over.) Now if they had added some of those gap Swing dancing scenes and mixed in a few matrix odd jump moves...maybe an all out 'Rocky Horror' kind of dance number between all the robots or something.  Ah well. 'Death by Snu-snu' will have me smiling for the next 5 episodes

If it's not impossible, it isn't worth doing

Yep, I agree, "Bendless Love" beats out "Lesser of Two Evils"for worst episode. Maybe I just don't like Flexo.

I think all episodes of futurama was fairly good. I hate Qubert so AOI was best and clone of my own was worst,because we can see Qubert first time.

Yeh I resurrected this thread to see if one of the moderators would close it. I tried to make it obvious that there were two threads the same so that they would realise & I guess they did & the only reason they did'nt shut either thread is because they have too much pride.
 The question I ask (moderators) is why did they shut my thread on the TV forum just because there was a simular topic if they don't shut this one?
