I, too, am going to have to change my list, as I've recently been catching up on Futurama by watching the newer season 6A, 6B, and 7A episodes online. I've gotta say, the newer seasons are way better than I expected them to be. I was worried they'd be all dumbed down and meant for a more low brow crowd, but thank goodness they aren't.

Looks like my previous list will just be my 'favorite FOX run' list of episodes, then.

I'll review my top 10 once the season is over. In fact, I might just review my top 140 ( There's a thread for ranking the entire series).

I actually just started to watch the show and thought this would be a good forum to ask which episodes are some of the best. I already know the basics.

It's good in both a Sci-Fi sense and a Fry/leela sense. Great for any shippers out there,  especially.

I think my favorite season has been 7A - and if you don't count A's and B's ans induvidual seasons, then I'd go with just overall season 7. It's got a lot of great episodes in it, such as Farewell to Arms, Decision 3012, and Bots and the Bees. The only stinkers in 7A, to me, are Naturama, which is probably my least favorite episode in the entire series, and 31st century Fox, and does that one has some good moments.
Plus, it's DVD cover has Zoidberg on it! Who doesn't like him?

Actually, I'm changing my favorite season to 6B- It had so many cool story-driven episodes that managed to be very Sci-Fi and Hilarious at the same time, and even the lesser episodes of that season were somewhat good. 7A is still my 2nd favorite, however.

Season 7 as a whole is actually shaping up to be really great, bar a few small exceptions... But no season has been truly perfect. Season 3 was my favourite of the original run, and even THAT had my then-most-hated episode A Leela of Her Own.

Favourite episode ever? Tough call. Roswell That Ends Well is a fantastic all-around one. I always loved The Sting for its dark humour and general WTF-ness. War is the H-Word and Reincarnation are probably the most I've ever laughed at the show. And The Prisoner of Benda deserves a mention for being so damn convoluted and hard to follow... Eh, I'd probably have to go with Roswell.

There.

That ends well.

You said it so I didn't have to. All I'd add would be Less Than Hero, as parodying campy superhero tropes is like my favourite thing ever. Proof that Futurama can spoof a genre without making it the only joke (looking in your direction, Fun Pit).

I think my favorite episode of the entire series is A Farewell To Arms.
I like how large of a scope the story has, for starters. I mean, It's not only the possible end of Earth, it's also the end of Mars,  Fry is stuck without Leela,  Earth's society is collapsing, Mars and Earth are about to collide, and Leela had broken her leg. It covered all the needed aspects of a classic episode- Great humor, Touching storyline, Sci-Fi themes, and almost every important charatcer was in it.
I think this episode could've worked as a Movie, myself, because of it's epic story and great writing.

Actually, the first three episodes of Season 7A are all excellent, when I think about it. TBATB was very cute, as you never get to see that much of Bender's soft side, AFTA was awesome because I just told you why, and D3012 had some cool callbacks to BBS, and had great writing in the same way AFTA had.

Farewell to Arms is surprisingly unpopular around here, considering the feneral consensus elsewhere on the webz.

Now, I know I'm going to get alot of "Boos!" and "You Suack!"s from this, but I personally like the Comedy Central run better than the FOX run, at least in this moment in time.

For starters, the CC run episodes all, for the most part, revolve much more around Sci-Fi plots than the original run does. This makes the CC run feel much more consistent with it's story types, while episodes in the FOX run could have gone anywhere at any time.  Basically, FOX run feels much more Sitcom-y at times, epecially during Season 2 and some of 3.
Also, I've gotten many more laughs from the new run than the original. It almost feels like there's a better sense in timing with the new ones, especially when the joke isn't pointed directly out ("A Solemn Testicle to the who Died" for example, wasn't reacted to by any of the characters). Yes, the original is very funny to, specifically in S3 and 4 episodes to me, but I think there's just funnier quotes in the new run.

Now, don't get me wrong - The new run is excellent, and I love many, many episodes from it. Yes, the CC run has had more low points than the FOX one, true. But, for the most part, I just find the CC run to be a bit more engaging and fun, due to the great plots and dialogue.

I will say, though, that newcomers should watch the entire FOX run before wading into the CC run, first of all because it introduces and develops the main charatcers better than the CC run does, and also because some episodes' jokes refer to earlier episodes, such as when Bender say "Shut up, ____, I know it" or when Zoidberg says "Hello, you!".

I found the FOX run superior to the CC run. I respect your opinion, MRM. But I just think the FOX run had more memorable quotes, memorable episodes, better writing, and the characters were more likable.

I like the CC run. It wasn't bad. But it definitely was not as good as the FOX run. The Characters are a bit less likable, not so many memorable quotes, and finding memorable episodes is a bit harder than it was for me in the FOX run. The writing, is still kind of the same. The jokes eventually thawed out, and turned into a mix bag. But it still has the same Futurama-ey writing.

The characters have changed. Fry was at first turned into a complete dope in Season 6, but then in Season 7 he turned into a total childish sap. Bender, is still kind of the same. He's a bit more of a attention-whore than he was in the FOX days. I mean he was already a attention whore in the FOX days, but in the CC run, he became somewhat more of it. Leela, her differences are hard to cope with. Usually she's the confident, life-risking brave captain. Nowadays, she's sunk more into Fry's shoes, and became somewhat lazy, and got rid of that confident personality. Every now and then, we'll see some of her old Personality. But she's just different. And I don't exactly like it. Hermes, is still kind of the same. But in 2 episodes, he's been portrayed as the pop-culture "typical Jamaican". More Specifically with the weed jokes. Amy, I guess is still the same. But her voice-time is so annoying, and usually unnecessary. The Professor, is still the same. If he ever changed, I'd probably stop watching. He's one of my favorite characters. His character is just awesome.

Pop-Cultural references have became a little bit more involved in the CC run. In Season 6A, they were really involved with the first 5 episodes. Later episodes of Season 6, they become less involved. In the beginning of Season 7, they once again become pretty involved. Once again, they eventually became less and less involved as the Season went on.

I'm not dumping on the CC run. I liked it's return. There's a good 7 or 8 episodes that I really, really loved since the return. And as long as I got that, than I am pleased to say that I was kind of happy with the return.

I still think they have enough material for one more season, and could make it the strongest returning Season ever. I mean the Zapp and Kif show? An Agnew and Nixon head-thing parody? (I forgot what it was about), the backwards in time guy who's actually Fry and Leela's son? I say they are good for one more season. Anything beyond that, might be really bad. I could be wrong. But it's just my opinion.

I agree that the Fox run was better than the Comedy Central run, but Bender's somewhat-memorable quote "Let's go already!" was introduced during the CC run. Though I'm not sure if anyone besides me actually likes that quote.
