They painstakingly type their genius and then it's animation and voiced and then... FOX shunns it down to a 7pm timeslot again, those dirty bastards! Anyway, vote for your favorite writer. If you're unsure, go to any episode guide to see what episodes they've written.

If I had to pick just one: Eric Kaplan gave us Hell Is Other Robots, Why Must I Be A Crustacean In Love, A Bicyclops Built For Two, I Dated A Robot, and my all-time-fave, Parasites Lost. Descriptions of his yet-unaired Jurassic Bark and Three Hundred Big Boys frighten and thrill me. "Go man, go!!"--Bender

Can someone please provide a list, citing examples of each writer's work?  You know, for the less hard-core.

Tough choices, I'm torn between Ron Weiner for "Fryrish" and J. Stewart Burns for a bunch of goodies, including "Mars University," "Roswell," "The Deep South," and "A Head in the Polls." I'll get back to ya.

TLZ has a good complete list. Easy way: pick your favorite eps, go to The Leela Zone's Episode Guide, look 'em up, watch for the recurring name(s).

CGEF's "episodes by writer" might be some more helpful for this, but I need to add the latest few eps to that...

[edit: updated]

I myself must say that I'm kinda impressed with Ken Keelers record. All 5 but The Honking of his episodes (1ACV12 - When Aliens Attack, 2ACV07 - Put your head on my shoulder, 2ACV16 - Anthology of Interest I, 3ACV14 - Time keeps on slippin', 3ACV20 - Godfellas) are on my alltime favourites list.

Eric Kaplan:
1ACV09 - Hell Is Other Robots
2ACV05 - Why Must I Be A Crustacean in Love
2ACV09 - A Bicyclops Built for Two
3ACV02 - Parasites Lost

I'm going with Ken Keeler, not because he's written the very best episodes, but because he's consistent and imaginative.

I chose Bill Odenkirk, even though he's only been around for so long, "A Tale of Two Santas" and "Insane in the Mainframe" are my top two favorite episodes.

I'll say Lewis Morton. His episodes are generally hilarious. Bill Odenkirk is also a solid performer.

I like Ron Weiner, but he's only had two episodes to prove himself, and while Pharaoh is seriously underrated, it's no Luck of the Fryrish.

I voted for Dan Vebber. He may only have directed one episode but that one is my favourite episode out of all them: The Bird-bot of Ice-catraz. I really like that episode and love the Penguin Bender moments. "I don't know why, but when I look down at their little faces it makes me want to puke. In a good way".

Well, I dunno where in the show do they show the credits. Is it in the end? In the beginning I only see credits for the co-producers, co-executive producers, and supervising producers. I noticed some of the writers' names, but with these other titles. I'm not able to see all the end credits, as Fox smushes them in with their 'upcoming feature'.

Writing credits are somewhere in the beginning of the show.

From the two episodes I checked: the writer is usually towards the end of the 15 or so producer credits.

              J. Stewart Burns is probably my favourite writer.

              1ACV07 - My Three Suns
              1ACV11 - Mars University
              2ACV03 - A Head in the Polls
              2ACV19 - The Cryonic Woman
              3ACV19 - Roswell that Ends Well
              3ACV19 - Where the Buggalo roam

            I'll forgive him the little mishap known as "The Cryonic Woman", and the rest of his episodes are generally very funny, and wellwritten. "A Head In The Polls" and "Roswell That Ends Well" are both high on my top-10 list.

            Honorable mentions go to:

            Ken Keeler for
              1ACV12 - When Aliens Attack
              2ACV07 - Put your head on my shoulder
              2ACV16 - Anthology of Interest I
              2ACV18 - The Honking
              3ACV14 - Time keeps on slippin'
              3ACV20 - Godfellas

            Brian Kelley for
              1ACV04 - Love's Labour's Lost In Space

            Dan Vebber for
              3ACV05 - The Bird-bot of Ice-catraz
              4ACV03 - Love & Rocket

            Eric Kaplan for
              1ACV09 - Hell Is Other Robots
              2ACV05 - Why Must I Be A Crustacean in Love
              2ACV09 - A Bicyclops Built for Two
              3ACV02 - Parasites Lost
              3ACV15 - I Dated A Robot

            and ofcourse Ron Weiner for
              3ACV04 - The Luck of the Fryrish

            Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!
