Mine was Space Pilot 3000, when the show premiered.  When I first heard about the show, I thought it was going it was going to be a lame spin-off of the Simpsons.  Since I was a Simpsons fan, I decided to give it a shot nonetheless.  That episode was surprisingly fresh and funny.   It really seemed to start out the series strong.

I can't really remember the first ep I saw. I saw the first seasons eps when it first came on and loved it but the bits I can memorably recall back then was Benders robot wash moment and him getting addicted to electricity and changing his attitude/finding religon. The last ep that was shown back then was the AOI1 and I loved that giant Bender one.     love
Also Fry saying hehe that'll show him when the professer said he'll have him and Guenther neutered if they don't stop fighting. And Ziodberg's line did someone say something about a free hot meal    laff

I saw the premier and liked it a lot.  I have always considered myself a futurama fan, but I kinda got away from watchting them midway through the second season, then when i went to college i discovered the joys of a highspeed interenet connection and now i can happily say i have seen all the episodes.

mmm... I believe my first one was "My three suns", about two years ago - I didn't realize many things of the show as I didn't saw the first two episodes (Fry's freezing and then joining the PE crew and so on...). This show works differently than Simpsons, unlike many people thinks. You can sit in front of your TV and watch Homer in any episode even if you never did before. With Futurama, sometimes you miss some humor or could not understand some gag if you didn't see some old episode before. After I watched more and more episodes I found the show more and more funny  smile

I watched Space Pilot 3000 when it Premiered on Sky One. I was thinking along the same lines (ish) as Joe25 and was pleasently suprised and thought it was a great show. I watch the occasional Futurama - but my parents kept switching most of them over. I didn't get into watching it the way I do now until The Cyber House Rules showed on Sky One

I saw the first episode and liked it.  I've tried to be a faithful fan by following all the horrible schedule changes FOX gives the show.

I remember when Futurama first came on.  I remember the first commercials being shown months before it came on.  I remember the first episode and watching several times over before they started showing new episodes.  I remember the heads in jars, but MOST of all I remember Bender crapping that brick and me hitting the floor with laughter.  I was HOOKED!

Mine was SP3000 also.  I was a little dissappointed at first, but went back to it again, and now LOVE IT!

It's good when it's a grower, I think we can appreciate it for longer.

Space Pilot 3000 was the first one I saw. I got interested in watching it cuz I knew it was from the same creator as The Simpsons. If The Simpsons sucked way back then, I probably would've taken scant interest.  tongue

SP3k - saw it the day it was first broadcast in North America, and I was hooked.

"Space, it seems to go on and on, then you get to the end and a gorilla starts throwing barrels at you"  What a great start ot a new series.  This really set the tone for the level of intelligence we would be seeing in Fry.

I started watching it from the beginning. I saw all of Season 1, then most of the first half of Season 2, I missed the last half of  Season 2 ( because of things I had to do on Sundays), I missed the beginning episodes of Season 3, but I saw most of that season and then I saw all of Season 4. Really, I only missed a handful of episodes. Plus, since then I was able to get a VCR where I could set tapes up to start recording at 7:00pm so I wouldn't miss the episodes.

^Same has Otis and Tweek^ but I recorded it as I was watching it at a friends house. I think it was part of C4's Animation Week. South Park was on afterwards - the episode with the "Brown Note"!

Space Pilot 3000 Premier on Sky 1.

My world changed forever as soon as I set eyes on the vision of beauty that is Leela.

It's also the episode that made me a dedicated shipper those hand-holding scenes in Old New York did it for me

I heard about it from a Simpsons site, but it didn't sound like my kind of thing, then C4 showed A Flight To Remember and I thought it was cool, everyone was talking about it the next day at school so I felt popular  tongue
Then C4 showed Loves Labours Lost In Space and I was hooked. I saw the C4 documentary and then Space Pilot 3000 at a later date, but of the first series of 13 episodes, before purchasing the video I had only seen 4. The video finally convinced me that this was the best animated series on Earth, a great mix of comedy (Loves Labours Lost in Space), Drama (The Series has Landed) and romance (Flight to Remember). Name another animated series that gives you all three. Bam!

Actually I didn't really fall for Leela until I watched most of Season 3 - but I watched that season before most of Season 1 and 2 anyway so..

First episode I saw was "The Series Has Landed". I'd been kicking myself for a week for missing SP3K, and was ready when the second episode rolled around. I wasn't disappointed, the introduction of Zoidberg was one of the most hillarious scenes I'd seen in a long time. I thought it was a great comedy show, and then I saw that beatiful scene in the lunar lander, I knew then that I was hooked.

Roll around "Love's Labours Lost in Space" and the introduction of one of my favorite characters, Kif Kroker, and there were no turning back.

The fair cyclops Leela caught my interest right from the start, but LLLIS sealed it for me.

Ah, yes, Leela.   love   love

I like Kif too, but I didn't like his acting in "Brannigan Begin Agan". I watched this episode after "A fligh to remember", "Amazon women in the mood" and "Where the buggalo roam" and found he was acting in LLLS somewhat different than in those episodes when his love for Amy was introduced in the show. Maybe the writers didn't worked too much on Kif's personality before.

[confession]
my first episode was "mothers day". i saw it on a LAN party i was at. I thought it was pretty funny and then let it go since nobody had any other episodes on their comps.
At another LAN party the guy who showed that episode during the last LAN party, showed us a few more of them on the projector. Needless to say, i was really getting to like what i saw and asked if he had any more of them. He told me he had the full season 1 and 2 right there, and so it all began...

i hate to admit that the only episode i saw on TV was "Thats lobstertainment", and that was also the time i found out that the subtitling was horrible. Nearly all the jokes lost their meaning.

Since then, i have paid little heed to the show as it airs on our TV4 network almost two full seasons after, in the middle of the night and with distracting subtitles.

I bought the DVDs though, that ought to remedy my sins somewhat...

you're lucky swedish
in Italy you have to watch Futurama with Italian *dubbing* not just subtitles

initially I liked the italian voices, but after downloading (can I say the word?) some episodes in original english... well that was another world  big grin

anyway now I'm going to buy the DVDs  smile

I eargerly awaited the premier of SP3000 for a week, and saw that first.  I stayed around for the first season, but somehow I just quit TV altogether until in early 4th season, when at college I found that someone on my network had ALL the season 1-3 episodes on shared.  I rediscovered Futurama there, and now I watch every episode on TV, even reruns, and watch my "aquired" collection when the I feel the need to see an episode again.

I started watching it from Space Pilot 3000, saw every episode (except A Clone of My Own) on Fox.  It went from being one of my favorite shows into being my favorite show ever after Luck of the Fryish and rewatching all previous episodes.

I think it was When Aliens Attack, I seem to remember the bit when Fry knocked Fox off the air as one of the first bits I saw anyway.
My Three Suns was one of the first too, a fine way for an introduction.

That reminds me of a great story. In Norway once they were showing a show on classic comedy scenes from shows. In the room were some Norweigns and some Canadians when the "Dead Parrot" sketch from Monty Python came on. There was subtitles for the benefit of the Norweigns, but unfortunately they only have one word for 'Dead', so the scenes translated as "This parrot is dead, dead, dead, dead, dead, this is a dead parrot". The Canadians were LOL, but the Norweigns didn't get it.  big grin
