7B so far:
  1. The Inhuman Torch
  2. Calculon 2.0
  3. Assie Come Home
  4. Fry and Leela's Big Fling
  5. 2-D Blacktop
  6. Forty Percent Leadbelly
  7. Leela and the Genestalk
  8. Saturday Morning Fun Pit
  9. T.: The Terrestrial

Those will probably change, when I watch them all in a row.

7A only:
  1. Decision 3012
  2. Near-Death Wish
  3. Viva Mars Vegas
  4. Fun on a Bun
  5. Free Will Hunting
  6. The Thief of Baghead
  7. A Farewell to Arms
  8. Six Million Dollar Mon
  9. 31st Century Fox
 10. The Bots and the Bees
 11. Zapp Dingbat
 12. Naturama
 13. The Butterjunk Effect

Something like that. It was surprisingly hard to rank those, lots of fairly good ones.

Combined after season ends.

I love how you always have a giant stick up yours ass. It's actually entertaining to read your thoughts on Season 7 in the winiest, most snarky voice I can come up with.

SGB, that was by far one of the funniest things I've read on PEEL yet.

I'm going to start doing that from now on! I mean he's entitled to his opinion and everything, but I don't see how MotPE was in any way "predictable" and "lazily written". That threw me off. I thought it was cleverly written.

I agree about cyber_turnip's hate for Season 7. I know Futurama has high-standards, but he expects a groundbreaking classic every week.

I don't expect a classic every week. I just feel that season 7 has been hugely below the standard of everything that the show has ever done before and I'm not one of these people who complains about everything new because I was hugely defensive of both the DVD movies and season 6. In fact, I'd say that I probably prefer season 6 to seasons 1 and 2 of the original run.

It's also not as if I'm unable to give praise when I feel that it's worthy. I really liked "Fun on a Bun".

So yeah, it's not that I expect a groundbreaking classic every week. It's that I expect one of two groundbreaking classics per season and none of season 7 really cuts the mustard for me. "Fun on a Bun" is as good as it's gotten and that episode isn't remotely close to being on par with the likes of "The Luck of the Fryrish" or "The Farnsworth Parabox".

For the record I agree with a lot of things cyber_turnip criticises about Season 7. Not all of it, but a lot of it. Mainly, how screwy the continuity has gotten.

I'm with you Danny. A fair amount of cyber_turnip's criticisms I actually agree with, except on a much smaller scale.

Funnily enough, I think 7B has actually been very good with continuity; at least compared to 7A. I can't think of a single episode so far that's made a severe violation of the show's "laws".

Oh, and I almost forgot:

1) Game of Tones
2) Murder on the Planet Express
3) Leela and the Genestalk
4) The Inhuman Torch
5) Assie Come Home
6) Fry and Leela's Big Fling
7) 2-D Blacktop
8) Calculon 2.0
9) T.: The Terrestrial
10) 40% Leadbelly
11) Saturday Morning Fun Pit

7ACV as a whole:

1) Game of Tones
2) Fun on a Bun
3) Murder on the Planet Express
4) 31st Century Fox
5) Viva Mars Vegas
6) Leela and the Genestalk
7) The Inhuman Torch
8) Assie Come Home
9) Zapp Dingbat
10) The Six Million Dollar Mon
11) Fry and Leela's Big Fling
12) The Thief of Baghead
13) Decision 3012
14) The Bots and the Bees
15) 2-D Blacktop
16) Naturama
17) Calculon 2.0
18) Near-Death Wish
19) A Farewell to Arms
20) T.: The Terrestrial
21) Free Will Hunting
22) 40% Leadbelly
23) The Butterjunk Effect
24) Saturday Morning Fun Pit

I do believe that 7B deserves some criticism. However, some people act like the tiniest  problems with an episode is World War 3. Honestly, I feel cyber is far too incredulous. Overall, I have enjoyed Season 7. It had more good than bad overall, and had a fair share of laughs. It's also the seventh season of a show, which is far past its prime. However, I feel like Season 7 is just as good as Season 6. They're both pretty good but not as good as the prime was (obviously). But the new run has been a welcome and beyond acceptable addition to the original run, in my opinion.

I think there's a world of difference between seasons 6 and 7, honestly. I think that "The Late Philip J. Fry" is one of the show's very best episodes of all time. To be honest, if season 6 consisted of 25 "Holiday Craptaculars" and "The Late Philip J. Fry", I'd probably still be happy that they'd revived the show, overall. Nothing in season 7 comes close to that level of quality.

And more importantly, season 6 didn't have too many horribly awful episodes. Sure, there were more than any previous seasons, but season 7 feels like the first season where there are more bad episodes than good ones.

If anything, I'd admit that the quality in season 7 is much more consistent than in season 6, but it's consistently lower than I'd say the average quality of season 6 was. Season 6 had some really poor episodes dotted around in it, but the highs were spectacular and I've always been one to favour a few amazing episodes and a few terrible episodes over consistently decent episodes (hence why I think I prefer season 6 to 1 and 2).


Also, it's ironic that you posted that Breaking Bad gif up there, because the fact that new Breaking Bad is airing along side new Futurama has only confounded things for me. Breaking Bad is every bit as incredible as it has ever been and it shows no signs of doing anything other than blowing us all away whilst it rides off into the sunset. Futurama, on the other hand, is nothing like as good as it used to be and each new episode is just furthering how tarnished the show becomes in my memory. I used to eagerly anticipate each new Futurama episode over the course of the week, to the point that I stayed up till 4 in the morning a few times, just so that I could watch new episodes as soon as possible (time differences). Nowadays, I get that excited for Breaking Bad, but I just don't care about Futurama nearly as much. I don't know, I suppose that contrast of quality just hasn't helped.

Anyway, I'm sorry if me having a different opinion to you is somehow threatening or something, Solid Gold Bender. As others like UnrealLegend and Danny have said, I like coming here and seeing the range of opinions that these episodes drum up and I don't see why mine is any less valid than anyone else's just because I feel like season 7 stinks. It's not like I'm just trolling; I've been justifying my opinion as the season goes on.

It's okay, Cyber_Turnip. None of us are going to agree with everyone's opinions. Personally, people call me crazy for putting The Cryonic Woman, Decision 2012 and Near-Death Wish so high on my list, but it's all cool. Honestly, I'd put Season 7 as the second weakest season of the entire series (The worst, for me being by far the Season 5 movies), but maybe the last two episodes at least one of them will be on par with Fun on a Bun for you. Otherwise, at least we can all say it was worth reviving the series just for The Late Philip J. Fry, right? smile

I actually like how skeptical you are cyber_turnip (in contrast to my standards). And yes, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
 
I also believe that Breaking Bad is the new Arrested Development. Nothing like it has ever been seen before. Every drama after it is going to try to be as good as it is. But nothing will ever be as good as it. Ever.

My favorite episodes of season 7:
-Fun on a Bun
-Murder on the Planet Express
-Zapp Dingbatt
