I should've mentioned, though, That my preference is a little bit biased due to the fact that all of the CC episodes are still pretty new to me, as I just started watching them online about two weeks ago.

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.

I agree with the CC>Fox statement.
The CC episodes seemed more routinely done.
Also, during the CC run, I give them credit for at least trying to be equal opportunity offenders sometimes.

The Farnsworth Paradox is an episode I always find myself wanting to watch after not having seen a Futurama episode in a while.

Whatever epsiode that's playing, usually!

Even the 'slow' episodes, like one where Leela becomes a
blurnsball player, I come to enjoy after more viewings.

Every season there are fave eps...

The last season, '40% Lead Belly' was a fave, cause I love
it whenever Bender plays guitar and sings (I play also...)

REALLY LOVE THESE:

XMAS STORY
ANTHOLOGY OF INTERST 1 AND 2
PARASITES LOST
THE LUCK OF THE FRYISH
BENDIN' IN THE WIND
ROSWELL HAT ENDS WELL
THE 30% IRON CHEF
LOVE AND ROCKET
LESS THAN HERO
BENDER SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED ON TV
WHERE NO FAN HAS GONE BEFORE
THE FARNSWORTH PARABOX
THREE HUNDRED BIG BOYS
THE DEVIL'S HANDS ARE IDLE PLAYTHINGS
BENDER'S GAME
THE DUH-VINCI CODE
THE PRISONER OF BENDA
MOBIUS DICK
LAW & ORACLE
OVERCLOCKWISE
A FAREWELL TO ARMS
ZAPP DINGBAT
VIVA MARS VEGAS
and many, many more...




Fly me to the Moon... any moon!

My fave is "The Sting". Yes, still. Well-plotted, brilliantly paced, very funny and extremely touching. Should have won the goddamn Emmy, goddamn it.

Second fave: The Devil's Hands etc etc.

God this is tough. I'd say either The Devils Hands, X-Mas Story, 300 Big Boys, or Forty Percent Leadbelly. Or maybe Fun on a Bun. Or maybe The late Philip J. Fry. I don't know anymore.

All I can really say is that my all-time favorite episode is "The Sting," which was only ranked #4 on my original list. Was I drunk or something? I had to be.

My all time favorite is A Farewell to Arms, but the rest I'm very unsure of. I'll have to do some extensive rewatching before making a definite, final list.

Devil's Hands has far more depth to it, but there's something about The Sting that really grabs me.

WELCOME TO PEEL, I agree, The Sting is a GREAT episode!! For some reason I'm not really the biggest fan of Jurassic Bark even though it's seems to be on most PEElers top 10 hmpf

I didn't even think it was held in all that high regard until after that Comedy Central marathon. I always thought most fans considered Luck of the Fryrish to be the superior flashback episode.

I agree that TLOTF is superior episode to JB, but I think the latter is more of a heavy-hitter emotionally (and it's one of the few episodes to end on a tragic note).

They're still both excellent episodes that are among the show's very best. Strangely, "The Sting" never really did much for me.

I like The Sting more for its relentlessly trippy weirdness as opposed to the Fry/Leela plot. We all saw the ending coming a mile away, but that didn't stop the journey there from being utterly fantastic.

Time Keeps on Slippin' is a fantastic emotional episode too, which also ends on a note of tragedy (coupled with also being very funny, AND having a cool sci-fi plot). Shame it often gets overlooked in favour of the flashback episodes, I really do think it's a much better example of the show firing on all cylinders.

This is the other episode I was thinking of when I was talking about JB ending on a sad note.

Are there any others? I can't think of any.

Some episodes end on slightly dark/sombre notes (ie. A Flight to Remember, A Tale of Two Santas), but Jurassic Bark and Time Keeps on Slippin' are the only two I would consider to be downright tragic.

Yeah, I'd still say nothing has dethroned The Sting for me when I first saw it 10 years ago. It's still the perfect Futurama episode plot and humour wise. I'd probably say The Late Philip J. Fry and Roswell That Ends Well are the closest to what The Sting achieves, so that's no easy feat. Also, I prefer Time Keeps on Slippin' over Jurassic Bark and feel it's a little underrated here because it gets overshadowed by Jurassic Bark like Beamer said.

Jurassic Bark is overrated. Way too overrated. It was a good episode, but nothing amazing or gasp-worthy. Just good, the way I like my Futurama.

I pretty much agree with SolidSnake there; to me, The Sting and The Luck of the Fryrish are better "emotional" episodes than JB.  I rank it just below them, along with Leela's Homeworld, TLPJF and even Meanwhile.

You are a refreshing new peeler, sir and or madam.

I do agree that Jurassic Bark is ridiculously overrated. It's a good episode, but not as good as the kind of credit it gives, being dubbed by many, " The Best Episode."

Yeah, I think it was very good (not top 10/20, though) and only location of Mars issue bothers me little, but many PEELers are bothered more.

I think the location of Mars was more of a problem with 'Viva Mars Vegas', as that episode completely ignores the fact that in 'Arms', Mars is supposed to be destroyed. All 'Arms' did was change up the storyline a little by obliterating a planet,at least for a few episodes.

I've always assumed that Mars went into a new orbit somehow, and didn't end up being destroyed.

I'm perfectly happy with the "Mars in a new orbit" explanation, but they still should've acknowledged it in some form, given how major a plot point it was in A Farewell to Arms. They could've easily gotten it out there with one damn line.

I agree with Beamer, but it doesn't really bother me that much. Also, I prefer to stick the blame on "A Farewell to Arms" anyway since that whole sequence with Mars going out of orbit was incredibly weak.

Not to most PEELers. I as well think it is quite overrated, if you like the episode, post it, get bad rep and responses, then foget-a-bout-it.

We all know your opinion on it and, as you can see, disagree. Time to get over it.

Anyways, I finally watched "The Sting," and loved it. It has such a great plot and is overall a phenomenal episode!!!
9.5/10 because I was able to guess it was all a dream after about 3/4 of the episode. Still one of the best I've seen.
