"Fear of a Bot Planet". One of my favorite episodes, and I rarely hear any mention of it. I think it's gold all the way through.

Agreed. Itís criminally underrated just like most of Season One. Hillarious throughout and one of the eps that which made me fall in love with the show...

Future Stock.

It's usually considered a good episode, but it's literally one of my all time favourites. In fact, probably my second favourite, under "The Why of Fry."

Yes, Futurestock is one of my favourites as well, I simply love it. In fact itís one of my most re-watched eps of the whole show, thereís a fun fact Iíve never shared before. That Guy just makes it, the whole thing is excellent though and itís just different to other Futurama eps in a good way, you know what I mean?...

Oh for me Frida is my favorite Waterfall member.  Gorky you are just a victim of the patriarchal manocracy.


I find Frida kind of grating, though I guess that's the point. Hutch, meanwhile, has that slackery surfer-dude thing going for him, which I find quite amusing.

And I must admit that I love me a man who wears tinfoil on his head and pees himself. Incidentally, if anyone has a crazy, incontinent grandfather, I'd appreciate it if you got me his digits.

I would have to say Obsoletely Fabulous.
A solid, funny, and very surreal episode. I've always loved it, but apparently I'm not in the majority here.

Why would I put them in a freezer bag? They're much tastier when they're fresh.

Exactly. Bender is also very sweet and pitiable in this episode, which I like. I find it hard to stand him when he's being too much of a heartless jerkwad. Also, that waterwheel robot (Lisa?) is hilarious ("I WANT TO LIVE!"), and her declaration of love to Bender (and his response) always makes me giggle.

Not to be the party pooper, but I'm going to be the party pooper and say that I wasn't so keen on Obsoletely Fabulous. I liked all of the NNY scenes, but the stuff on the island (apart from the obsolete robots themselves) just wasn't that great for me and let it down...

I loved the obsolete robots, but Lisa stole the show. "OH GOD!  I'M NOT GOING TO MAKE IT THIS TIME!"

Plus the title is a reference to one of my favorite shows ever.

Lrrenconcilable Ndndifferences, I know I am only one of 5 who really enjoyed it...it fits in so much with the classic run of Futurama, I don't see why it doesn't have more of a following....AND it had a Comic scene where Bender cosplayed as a big boobed mutant! Come on!

I'm also one of this 5 people who really enjoyed Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences, Randi. Great ep, one of the best from 6A. Lrrr is one of my fave characters, and this ep really was just great fun and classic Futurama if you ask me. Light hearted and fun big grin...

Okay dude, there are 26 episodes in Season 6. 13 of them aired last year. They are Season 6A. The next 13 aired this year. They are 6B. Same with Season 7.

Also, the reason they aren't called 7 is because the 26 eps were split in half and all have a 6ACV production code...

Lrreconcilable Ndndifferences was definitely in my top five, probably in my top three from Season 6B. The Comic-Con spoof was so freaking hilarious, and Lrrr is always a fun character (in moderation!).

Obsoletely Fabulous is a good one, too. I love the whole final act especially. "Oh, lord, he's made of wood."

I agree.  I loved LrrcorricibleNdndifferences, and I was actually astonished it has such a bad reputation on here.   I loved the Comicon, and the fantastic Orson Welles appearance.  Plus I think Lrr and Ndnd are both fantastic characters, and they are even better together.  They both had fantastic lines, and lots of funny little gags at Omicronian society and biology (like Ndnd eating a priceless ruby like an apple, or wearing a face to the theatre.)  Plus if any of you have ever had a very pushy female presence in your life, there is plenty to cringe but laugh knowingly about.    "Lrr!  I'm in here now!  Not out there!" "Coming, gigantums."   That and PI are easily the two most underrated episodes of 6a.

Oh and the ending was adorable.  "Mmmmmmwah.  Good ending.  Not great."  Was so cute.  

And another thing, I thought Ndnd's Lrrrrrr purr growl was very sexy.  I'm surprised Tress doesn't have men levitating into her bed when she does that.   Grrl was also quite sexy, despite furries mostly being... well.  You know.  (I have also dated two.  Never again.  Never, ever again.)

The Comicon was the worst part of that episode. Too self-referential/meta.

It felt like a filler episode over all, but there were a couple of nice touches saving it from being a bad episode. Just average, though. I don't think we got much of amazing brilliance (other than a couple of scenes and several small moments like Ndnd biting into a gigantic ruby).

As for furries, it's hard to think of a creepier set of sexual fetishists that don't do anything illegal. Except maybe the folks who are into being tortured.

You don't need to remind me.  I'll never forget the day I was tricked into attending a furmeet.  No sipping overpriced hot chocolate and nibbling pastries by the Thames.  Plenty of being pawed at by fat people dressed as cartoon horses. 

I swear I am way too tolerant for my own good sometimes!

And I like "The Honking," too. I don't understand why people rag on it so much. It's a little wacky, sure, but I love seeing the trio embarking on zany transcontinental hijinks! It also showcases the dynamic between the Fry, Leela, and Bender in a nice way, and is one of the better episodes to deal with the jealousy inherent in Fry and Bender's friendship.

Wait, people rag on "The Honking"? That one is also I think in my top 20. I have to check/update my list pretty soon. I love Honking. I love any episode that focuses on the trio, pretty much, and I think this one does a really nice job with both the Fry/Bender and the Leela/Bender relationships. Plus it is just a lot of fun.

I think I'd have to cast my vote for Frida as my favorite Waterfall, too. Those slogans, man. Too funny.

Why do people bash on the comic con scene? I have seen that said before. That was the most hilarious bit of all the episode to me.

Why do people bash on the comic con scene?

It's something from the 21st Century. It's something that feels too close to the modern era. It's also full of leaning harder on the fourth wall than anywhere else in the show. It just feels like it shouldn't have been there - perhaps the scene could've been better served and Lrr's humiliation better set up by some other means.

The only parts I liked of that segment were Fry gaining a mustache, and Zapp's figurine with the recording blooper. The rest of it was cringe-inducingly awful.

I agree with tnuk: the whole Comic Con thing is waaay too wink-wink/nudge-nudge. I probably wouldn't have minded it as much if not for that Futurella thing; having MG and DXC appear as themselves in an episode was too much for me.

That said, though, I quite enjoy "Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences," even though I don't think a tertiary character really required an entire episode devoted to his marital problems. That Leela and the rest of the PE crew play a big part in the story (and that Fry has his own cute little subplot) definitely helps, though.

I love Honking. I love any episode that focuses on the trio, pretty much, and I think this one does a really nice job with both the Fry/Bender and the Leela/Bender relationships. Plus it is just a lot of fun.

Exactly. And, though it's way zanier than "The Honking," I love "Less Than Hero" for similar reasons. Of course, I don't think "Less Than Hero" is really an underrated episode, so I guess that's kind of pointless to mention.

But maybe this is slightly less pointless: I also feel like people are unfair towards "The Route of All Evil." The Dwight and Cubert stuff isn't awful (it's not brilliant, but it has its moments), and the beer-brewing subplot is easily one of my favorite stories the show's ever done (I love when Fry, Leela, and Bender team up like that).

About Comic Con, why does Zapp Brannigan have an action figure? Do all Army leaders have action figures in the future?

I don't get why everyone hates Dwight as well.  Cubert is an obnoxious character who needs a smack in his pug nose, but Dwight is such a mild, inoffensive character.  I think if he was ten years older, no one would hate him (a lot of people just hate the kid characters on principle.)

Dwight is ok; I have no strong feelings one way or the other about him. The prospect of knowing he's in an upcoming ep wouldn't fill me with dread, nor would it excite me. I actually prefer Cubert myself because I find him funnier. Also, I do agree that The Route Of Evil is a tad underrated...

I definitely feel that "Put your head on my shoulder" is severely underrated. It's one of my favourite episodes and has a lot of great moments.

"Bend Her" is also a personal favourite of mine that a lot of people don't seem to like. It's a great Bender episode, as is "Raging Bender" and "Fear of a Bot Planet".

Of the newest season - "Proposition Infinity" is probably underrated as well. Initially I didn't like it that much, but I've re-watched it and it's actually quite funny. There are still a few things I don't like about it, but it definitely doesn't deserve a lot of the hate it gets and it is a lot better than the two episodes preceding it.

There's so many more I could list, but a lot of them have already been mentioned anyway, so I'll just stop here before I get carried away.   wink

I always thought it was quite well liked, it's definitely a fantastic ep. The ending let it down a little, but on the whole it was classic Futurama in my eyes, a great ep!...

I love "Put Your Head on My Shoulder," too (especially the ending, actually); it's one of my favorite episodes of the second season, which can be dodgy in spots. And "Bend Her" is perhaps my favorite Bender-centric episode of the series (with the possible exception of "Godfellas"); it's non-stop hilarity for twenty-two minutes.

After having watched it yesterday, I can say with even more certainty that "The Route of All Evil" is seriously underrated. The first two acts are great, and I think the episode only falters once the beer-brewing subplot ends and all that's left is the Cubert/Dwight/Hermes/Farnsworth stuff. That feels a bit too much like a cheesy family sitcom to me is all. But Cubert and Dwight don't really bother me (and I actually really like their appearances in "Bender Should Not Be Allowed on TV" and, to a lesser extent, "Bender's Game"), so that probably allows me to enjoy episodes featuring them more than most folks.
