Speaking for myself, I would most want to see another Reincarnation-type episode, with three stories each in a different animation style.  The possibilities are almost endless -- claymation, marionettes, 'South Park' style paper cutouts or 'Shrek' style CGI, as well as more traditional styles: Hanna Barbera Saturday morning cartoon, Disney classic, etc.

But I would be open to something completely different from the four episodes already aired.

Of those, either a new Anthology or a new Reincarnation. But probably actually a new Anthology, now that I think about it, even though I voted for a new Reincarnation. I think the old Reincarnation would be incredibly hard to beat, whereas an AOI 3 would more easily feel fresh and follow well in the tradition.

AOI, definitely. The format for a "Reincarnation"-type episode is just too boxed-in, I think, whereas AOIs give you more breathing room and story possibilities. Plus, part of what made "Reincarnation" so awesome was its uniqueness; though I think the writers could easily come up with three more animation styles to send up, I don't know that the parodies would be quite as interesting or inspired this time around.

I was going to post my reasons for voting for another AOI episode but then Gorky posted my thoughts before I could.

Ah well, I suppose that means less effort on my part. Thanks, Gorky!

I want to see another 'Reincarnation' above all else eventually, but I voted for 'Anthology of Interest III' because that's what I'd like to see next. 'Anthology of Interest III', then something new entirely, then 'Reincarnation II'.

I'd love to see (And think Futurama could do it really well) an episode made up of three different stories focusing on one characters events on that day (Similar to 'Go' or more closely related to the Simpsons episode 'Trilogy of Error')

Over on IMDb, someone was floating the idea of a trilogy of extended "Scary Door" episodes. I'd actually love to see that, although I could see it probably working better with one segment being "The Scary Door", one being "All My Circuits" and one being something else like Elzar's cooking show.

Well, we already have a full-length episode of "Everybody Loves Hypnotoad" on the DVD of "Bender's Big Score", so I could see such a compilation.

p.s. -- Should the "Everybody Loves Hypnotoad" episode count as an actual listed episode in the Futurama series?  There is no Fry, Leela or Bender, but you do have (lots and lots and lots of) Hypnotoad!

Reincarnation 2, and another Holiday Spectacular, because the original had so much potential but it just flopped.

Can't you make this a multi-vote poll, please?

AOI III is something I'd really love to see. I thought the first two were great and I was kinda surprised back in the day when Season 4 never had one. It's high time for another, there is much potential!...

Another AOI would be a great opportunity for a brief live-action sequence with the voice cast in cheap costumes playing their characters.

Dumb idea? Yes. Awesome idea? Yes.

I'd like to see a short inspired by the movie "run, lola, run." Perhaps involving some sort of device that creates a standing time loop and threatens to destroy the universe. Maybe the interaction of some sort of quantum measuring device and another device that allows you to see into the future, interacting to create a paradox that the universe can't quite deal with.

Sleeping, for reals, right now.

Yeah, Futurama's "Trilogy Of Error" equivalent could be awesome if done right.

Reincarnation 2.  It's basically AoI with extra artstyles.

The Run Lola Run idea sounds awesome.  Expecially if Franka Potente made a cameo.

I immediatelly had to think of  this

I am not afraid of a "live action segment". What I am REALLY afraid of would be a live action theatrical release, should some company purchase the Futurama rights after the shows final cancellation.
(Fry would probably be an Elite Marine frozen in some experiment, and the final scene would show him hissing an American flag on a crashed Omicronian starship, after he nearly single handedly stopped their invasion on earth....)

Oh and he would also be very shy and unsuccessful with women, and the last shot would be Leela declaring her love for him, despite them having no chemistry whatsoever.  Also Leela would be portrayed as a top female soldier.... that is captured by the lowest level Mook with no resistance and would need to be captured.   Also Amy would have no dialogue but simply be a white actress with enormous boobs.

Oh my, yes. I would look forward to a new Reincarnation episode. But for the love of God, stick with cartoon-y styles! I would also be fine with 3-D animation... but no live acting. Just the sheer thought of it freaks me out.

I still voted for AOI III. Simply because it's overdue and because both AOIs so far have been great. I think the very concept of these kind of episodes is naturally funny and less emotional which is the way I tend to prefer Futurama. So the nonaverage episodes like AOI and Reincarnation are always highlights for me.

I disagree with this. I think all six AOI segments were funny and Reincarnation was absolutely brilliant.

I would say AOI 3 but pretty much most episodes past Bender's Big Score have been an AOI...ya know? Characters get decapitated like its not issue anymore....I remember when they actually tried to explain those sorts of things, and for one episode, Put Your Head on my Shoulder, it was the crux of the plot.

Reincarnation was as close to an AOI episode as anything else, though. All it was missing was the What If machine.

The only new ep I can think of where unrealistic injuries occur is Tip of the Zoidberg, but correct me if I'm wrong. I do agree that the new season is a little more zany, but it's not as eccentric as the AOI premises.

Fry got impaled by a pole in "Parasites Lost". His arm was chopped off by Zoidberg in "Why Must I be a Crustacean in Love?". He also damaged his brain further in "Parasites Lost". His head and body survived a hovercar crash in "Put Your Head on My Shoulder". The heads of dead celebrities and historic people are alive in jars.

All valid points. Admittedly, the scene in Tip of the Zoidberg was over-the-top, but don't let that overshadow your perception of the whole sixth season.

His head and body survived a hovercar crash in "Put Your Head on My Shoulder". The heads of dead celebrities and historic people are alive in jars.

The 'Parasites Lost' points don't count because the first one would have probably killed him had he not been infected with the worms and he damaged his brain "but no more than a week of binge drinking or 5 minutes on a cell phone".
And we didn't see the crash in 'Put Your Head on My Shoulder' so we can't really complain about it. It most likely put him in a critical, mangled condition, so Zoidberg cut his head off and grafted it onto Amy's body with futuristic methods we don't know of yet. Then he took the body and repaired it over the course of what? A week?
And the heads in jars was explained by the opal substance causing a time-bubble of sorts, allowing them to stay alive.

'Why Must I Be a Crustacean in Love?' is the only really valid one, there.

Gotta go with an Anthology of Interest. Those are always good. And I'm not sure what they would do for another Reincarnation.
