As a long-time Star Trek fan, I absolutely loved Where No Fan Has Gone Before--that was my first Futurama episode.

TLPJF May be my favorite, or Reincarnation. I don't really know, Season 6 gave us some really good eps with a good amount of stinkers as well. But I'll give my top 11 below:

11 I Second That Emotion
10 The Problem with Popplers
9 The Why of Fry
8 Roswell that Ends well
7 Anthology of Interest
6 The Luck of The Fryrish
5 Jurassic Bark
4 The Bots and the Bees
3 The Sting
2 The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings
1 The Late Phillip J. Fry or Reincarnation.

It may be Reincarnation for me.

but I have alot of honorable mentions to: The Prisoner of Benda, A Clone of My Own, Hell is Other Robots, Mothers Day, Time Keeps On Slippin', Cold Warriors, That Darn Katz, Law and Oracle, and The Tip of The Zoidberg.

Not to me. I enjoyed the Fleischer style and the Anime style, both were cleverly written in my opinion. It's just hard deciding on which episode is better, because both were cleverly written and had a few good moments. But I think Reincarnation tops the cake for me.

Remember, Reincarnation is non-canon and has some moments that fit into whatever animation style they were doing, and shouldn't be taken as seriously like a canon episode would.

Strictly speaking, that's not true: he has enough imagination to picture a world where "Reincarnation" is not an awesome episode. tongue

Seriously, though: I get why that's a divisive, love-it-or-hate-it episode. It's so far removed from what Futurama typically does; I think it's impressive that the characters themselves still retain their basic personality traits from style to style and from story to story (it helps ground things, somewhat), but there is still something very different about the episode that makes it hard to compare to both other canon episodes, and to past AOI-style non-canon fare. Besides the obvious visual differences, the pacing is different and the jokes are different. The episode is essentially an extended pop culture reference, a protracted and multifaceted homage, and I can definitely see how that would not be every fans' cup of tea.

'Course, I don't mean to put words into flesheatingbull's mouth; his reasons for disliking "Reincarnation" might be totally different from the ones I've described, which is (obviously) quite all right.

I know it's regarded as a strong episode. It's just that, so many people here are negative about the 'comedy central run', therefore I expected to be flamed simply because it's not from the original fox run.

The prisoner of benda is up there for me too, and might be my second favourite of all time...

I agree that the Comedy Central run has produced quite a few outstanding episodes, about as frequently as the original run did.  It is also true that the frequency of stinkers has been somewhat greater than in the original run, but there were more than a few bad episodes in the original run as well.  (I do think that "nostalgia goggles" prevent some people from realizing that fact.  I find it amusing when original run episodes that were not liked that much when they first aired, are now regarded as better than almost all the new episodes.)

That's pretty normal. In ten years time I'm sure people will complain about season 14 not being as good as classics like Yo Leela Leela and TFHS.

Over time, people will accept seasons 6 and 7 more. New stuff gets hated all the time just for being new.

I think both FOAB and TSMDM have beaten it. Maybe ZD as well. (Yes, I'm aware that you think more highly of MD than I do.)

If your real question was "will any episode be top 3 worthy", then probably not. Not from 7A, anyway. "Near-Death Wish" and "Free Will Hunting" both sound pretty cool though.

TSMDM

It took me waaay longer than it should have to figure out that that was an abbreviation for "The Six Million Dollar Mon." God, am I bright.

On the subject of season seven episodes beating out "Mobius Dick" (of which I'm actually quite fond; I'd say it's a solid 8/10, and definitely one of 6B's best episodes): I think "A Farewell to Arms," "Zapp Dingbat," and "Fun on a Bun" are all superior to MD. They're not as laugh-out-loud funny as that episode, but they all do a better job of keeping everyone in character and utilizing the whole PE crew in a balanced way--and, to me, that matters more when rating an episode than does the volume of jokes.

Of course, like UrL says, what Danny's really wondering is if any 7A episodes are better than anyone else's all-time favorite episodes...in which case I'd have to say no. The only episodes of the new run that would come close to besting my top three (roughly: "The Sting," "Roswell that Ends Well," and "Insane in the Mainframe") are "The Late Philip J. Fry" and "Reincarnation." "Fun on a Bun" is probably Top 25-worthy, though.

Well, since reincarnation is my favourite episode ever, I guess you could say yes for me. I'd also put Zapp Dingbat into a renewed top 15 list.
