My favorite episode is The Problem with Popplers.

Really? Out of all them? Oh well, who am I to judge. Welcome to peel, Note!

Are you really that surprised?  I've seen Problem with Popplers in tons of top 10 lists, so I'm not surprised that someone would have it as there number one spot.

Yeah, The Problem With Popplers was a particularly popular episode back when the Fox-run episodes were still coming out. It's been a little overshadowed by some of the more sci-fi heavy/emotional episodes that have been released since, but it's still one that a lot of fans hold in high regard (myself included). It's also the favourite episode of one of my very close friends, and after watching it with him and seeing the sheer delight on his face while it was on, I totally understand why.

Also, welcome to PEEL, note. smile

I'm starting to let Meanwhile get very close to my number one spot.  It feels like it won't be long before it takes the crown.

I mean I love the episode, I'm just used to episodes like " The Sting" and " The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings" being people's number ones, so it surprised me a bit.

Futurama is primarily a comedy, so it's not too uncommon to see a joke-heavy episode as someone's #1. Mine's Roswell That Ends Well, which is largely centred around the comedy, despite some prominent sci-fi elements. War is the H-Word would also easily crack my top 5, and that one's completely humour-based. smile

^ Oh, yes. War is the H-Word holds a special place in my heart because it's the first episode of Futurama I ever saw. smile

What would be better thing to do than report your favorite episodes as your first action in a forum about a TV show? smile

My top 5 in no order would be The Honking, Luck of The Fryrish, The Sting, Godfellas and I, Roommate, all practically just because they are funnier or have deeper plots than other episodes. But you really can't go wrong when naming your favorite Futurama episodes, there are at least 75 good episodes to choose from.

Hello Futurama people! I finished watching the Futuramas!

Season 7B was surprisingly good. Not great, but never cringe-worthy like some of the Comedy Central episodes have been (except Saturday Morning Fun Pit, that was terrible), and often surprisingly clever and pretty funny. I've been a bit down on the CC episodes, but I'm actually kind of sad they're gone now.

Anyway, I think it's been like 7 years since I watched most of my favourite episodes, but I want to make a top 10 favourites list anyway for some reason. These are the episodes I remember most fondly for whatever reason. I've tried to include at least one from every season.

10. Meanwhile
09. The Why Of Fry
08. Xmas Story
07. Roswell That Ends Well
06. The Late Philip J. Fry
05. Space Pilot 3000
04. Bender’s Big Score
03. Jurassic Bark
02. The Luck Of The Fryish
01. Godfellas

Like, I haven't seen Godfellas since 2007 I don't think, and it never even used to be one of my favourites, but... for some reason I'm convinced it's my #1 episode now.....
Sure, why not. wink

I like your list, ThinkyWhale!

And yeah, the CC run wasn't as good as the Original Run, but still decent. Whenever they hit the right chords, they fucking hit it.

10. Jurassic Bark
9. When Aliens Attack
8. The Day the Earth Stood Stupid
7. Roswell that Ends Well
6. Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles
5. The Luck of the Fryrish
4. Bender's Big Score
3. Fry and the Slurm Factory (lest we forget Slurms MacKenzie)
2. The Sting
1. The Late Philip J. Fry

Possibly not a conclusive list, but that's what my mind's currently set on including. The Tip of the Zoidberg, The Deep South and Mother's Day could all get in this list somewhere, because even though they're not fan favorites, they make me laugh a lot (and in the case of Mother's Day, deeply disturb me).

And you gotta love Zoidberg, especially in The Deep South. I'm close to perfecting my impression of his "homeowner" line.

There some episodes I like.  Some I don't.   Really don't want to waste time going through the list of episodes or reviewing them.   That's my answer.

Tina-Rannosaurus Wrecks would be my favourite episode, though I pretty much love any Tina-centric outing the show has.

There's a thread on the fan art section entitled "The Bob's Burgers Cast Picture 2.0", but for some reason it's got Futurama characters in it.

The creator of that must be a massive asshole.

I know it's unusual, but my all-time fave has to be lethal inspection. It has it all: Hermes (who's the best character), Bender, existential angst, plot twists, and a surprise ending. The flashback episodes like luck of the Fryrish are all good too.

Lethal Inspection's a pretty underrated episode, in my opinion. Not my favourite, but certainly one that gets unfairly overlooked in best episode lists.

I feel that Cold Warriors was a real let down in comparison to the other flashback episodes, though.

Yes, Lethal Inspection is one of my favourites and it is seemingly underrated.
Cold Warriors was just decent episode, but I think I like it more than others seem to.

I love Cold Warriors, but that's mostly because I think its story is great; flashbacks or otherwise. Also it was pretty funny, which certainly helps.

The story is the main problem with Cold Warriors for me. The whole episode just seemed like an exercise in pointlessness, and tried too hard to invoke sentimentality at the end, with the "Fry and his dad bonding" moment feeling ultimately tacked on. The fact that the episode is also lacking in laughs and the fact that a fucking Futurama comic handled the common cold storyline BETTER than the episode only made it worse, in my opinion.

I think the sentimental ending worked better in Cold Warriors than it did in Game of Tones. Fry and his mum (or mom for you Americans) felt more tacked on than him and his dad, since we actually see him mainly spending time with his dad throughout the episode. In Game of Tones, he just randomly starts missing his mum for no real reason.

Cold Warriors wasn't awful, and I definitely agree that the emotional connection in that episode (whilst no less blatant a manipulation of the audience) felt an order of magnitude less forced than in Game of Tones.

With that said, Cold Warriors was let down by the handling of the major plot, and the minor plot suffers by association. I can't say that it's a great episode, but it's certainly not as bad as some of the back end of the revived show's run. Shitfests like the Butterjunk Effect, T the Terrestrial, or Leela and the Genestalk spring to mind as far worse examples of the show overall.

I also have to agree with UrL in an important respect: CW is pretty funny, which helps it somewhat.

It's a really good episode, it might bottom out my top ten if I bothered to make one
