I'm sorry, Boxy, but this has been going on for far too long and I can't take it anymore.  The word you want is "definitely", not "defiantly".

If you insist on trying to correct every common spelling error in the ontopic forums, you'll end up butting heads with brick walls before too long. Seriously. Some people don't care, and others will spell things wrongly just to annoy. Some people have a hatred for correct capitalisation, some people have a hard-on for spelling words like "colour" wrongly (most of America does that tongue ) and some people just can't tell one end of a keyboard from another. no no

If you demand a higher literacy level from your conversations, try the offtopic portion of the site. I'm not saying you'll definitely get it there, but you might find it freer of what irks you. Maybe.

I appreciate the warning; let me point out that I don't insist on trying to correct every common error; this was a special case.  As implicitly acknowledged by his/her reply, Boxy has made this mistake both often and consistently.  (That is, as a search will show, (s)he used "defiantly" on several occasions and never -- or almost never; I can't recall -- used "definitely".)  Moreover, (s)he took the correction graciously.  So pointing out the error seems to have gone as well as it possibly could have, and no brick walls were harmed.

Enough offtopic, I hope.  Thank you for your attention.

I thought this was a pretty great episode. Good plot, Nice (though slightly reused) plot of Bender wanting to win at cooking, even suasage Fry was adorable haha. Good shipping (even though I'm not a shipper, but it was on the level of shipping in the original run, with a sweet ending to it all). Love Zapp's appearance and his one-liners (Ahha Leela we meet again, but this time I'm the one criticizing the sausage!). Nice colorful scenes. What I didn't like was actually the animation of the legs in the opening scene, just looked, comic-y lol. Anyways, one of the greater ones this season I would say. I'm thinking of maybe giving it a 9.5....but I guess I'll be generous and give it a 10, there isn't really anything I disliked about it.

Yay, ff. FoaB is probably my favorite of the last batch. Great little jokes, attention to detail, and then, of course, that orbital kiss.

I'm glad you are getting around to finally watching last season's. Are you doing it because the world is ending soon (or did that already pass)?

Oh, well. There's always 13/13/2013.

Haha, I gave in and got the season 7 dvd set. Partly due to curiosity, partly due to modly duties, partly due to price (it was only $14.99), and partly because I wanted to watch them brand new with Frisco tongue

Damn........Surprised this wasn't nominated for an Emmy. But then again, I'm not so surprised, since the Neanderthal parts were a teeny bit cheesy. But then again, it did lead us to an ending kiss that's probably nailed into the show's wall of fame.

Still, I wonder how the hell BOBS BURGERS got nominated.  confused

Yeah, something about Bob's Burgers annoys me. It couldn't possibly be the crappy animation, or unfunny jokes. Hmmm... I wonder what it is 😕

This. It seems people are turned away from the show due to the poor animation. Not only does the animation get increasingly better, I still don't see that as a reason for not watching the show...

It's better than Family Guy and some of the New Simpsons. I watched the whole first season of Bob's Burgers when it premiered on FOX in 2011. I just didn't like it.

It wasn't anything about the animation, it actually kinda fits for the show. But the jokes were just bland for me. The concepts and plots the story does just don't click. It's always going to involve Bob losing business somehow, or him being competitive with somebody. I mean don't we already see stuff like that in "American Dad"? The kids are just plain annoying. They really do not have any characteristics. It's like they're just there to try and bring a cheap laugh.

I don't hate the show. Just saying, I would LOVE to know how it got nominated for an Emmy, while a great Futurama ep is out in the dust. I'm happy that its getting some recognition. But still. It beat Fun on a Bun? That's unpossible!

There's your problem, the show (like many) doesn't really get great until season two. I recommend watching any from the second or third season and I can GUARANTEE you'll enjoy them (if not, definitely more so than anything from the first season).

I've watched a few episodes outside of Season 1. One of which involving Bob play this video game, and Bob's Burgers in competition with this other guy's restaurant. It seems like every episode involves Bob either;

A: Being in Competition with Somebody

B: Losing business at his restaurant.

It's always that same kind of plot. I mean if it's entertaining for you guys, then that's great. But it's just not appealing to me.

Eh, if you do wanna give it another try I recommend any of the following episodes...

"Bob Day Afternoon"
"The Belchies"
"Bad Tina"
"The Kids Run the Restaurant"
"Boyz 4 Now"

It's entirely your call but I do think the show is better than your giving it credit for.

That's what they said about mlp:fim, it does vary from person to person... never watched BB, probably never will. But I suggest you'd continue this on another board before tnuk, winna or face or someone else removes this^^

Cool episode!  Great to see Elzar again and Bender's 'sausage' incident!  The whole battle with the cavemen and the PE was just priceless!  Leela and Fry losing their memories of each other and it took a fight for them to remember!

Totally awesome episode!  And it was an even fight between Fry and Leela.  Fry hit Leela, and Leela hit Fry.  That was fair.

I recently got around to rewatching this. And I gotta say, I forgot how much I loved this episode!

Jeez. where to even begin? I loved the drunken Fry parts. Too funny.  I didn't exactly mind the Jersey Shore reference. The show always craps on Jersey. And the ending was really great.

This had a spark I haven't seen in any Futurama episode. Ever. Kinda similar to the one The Late Phillip J. Fry gave me when I first watched it though. But this one just came, out of nowhere, out of the infamous world of reruns. Like I don't think I ever liked the episode as much as I do now.

I think I'll keep my original rating of a 10/10 for this episode. It was Fun on a Bun, and lives up to the catch phrase. It definitely resides as one of my top 10 episodes.

I still don't see why it wasn't nominated for an Emmy, while the mediocre South Park episode was.  confused

To my understanding, the producers have to pick one episode from their run that year for Emmy submission. Was this even the episode they submitted?

Though yeah, very bizarre that Matt and Trey picked Raising the Bar. There were much better (and much more poignant) episodes that were eligible for consideration. I'd have gone with A Scause for Applause.

Yes, this episode was sent as their option for the emmy nomination. Here's the full list of the programs sent for the 2013 Emmy Awards. http://www.emmys.tv/sites/emmys.tv/files/Animation-Ballot-2013.pdf As for the South Park sent episode, Matt and Trey have already said before in commentaries that they really don't care about the awards, knowing that something like Simpsons or Futurama would probably win it anyway. Though Raising the Bar is one of the better episodes from Season 16s run (though I'd rather have had Ziplining or FaceTime sent instead).

Ziplining would've fallen into the 2012 submissions though, it aired in the first half of season 16.

As a Freela shipper, this episode is definitely a win! Fry's line "We were going out?!?" made me laugh so hard. I'm glad the writers joked about that aspect of Fry and Leela's relationship. The 360 degree kiss and Leela's memories of Fry coming back are really shippy moments for me.
Bender trying to get 1st place for best sausage was hilarious.
Hermes and the sloth were pretty funny too. Plus The Flintstones reference in the end.
I was surprised when Fry let Leela embarrass him for once by doing the chicken dance. I thought that was unexpected and sweet.
