Space pilot 3000. Saw it back when I was 5 or 6. I didn't really get into futurama until I was 8 and thanks to fox's stupid schedule i rarely got to see any episodes until the series had ended and teletoon put the reruns on in 2005.

I saw the original premier. Then I watched that episode two more times before they finally aired The Series Has Landed. Now I creatively edit articles about Futurama on wikipedia!

Space Pilot 3000, back when it originally aired. I didn't fully appreciate Futurama at the time though, I kind of just watched it because it was on TV. I definitely like Futurama more than Simpsons or anything else Fox plays now.

Space Pilot 3000, when it originally aired.  There was no chance that I would miss this show.

I first started following Matt Groening back in the mid 1980s with his "Life in Hell" strip, that was carried by the local alternative newspaper.  It stood out to me as being a good deal more insightful than most of its competition.

When I heard that the then-new FOX network was going to include a series of Matt Groening shorts in its show, "The Tracy Ullman Shaw", I made sure to watch.  The shorts involved a bizarre family based around a brat named Bart, his perceptive sister Lisa and his dim-witted balding father.  They also had a stuffed toy in the shape of a rabbit that was instantly recognizable as Binky from the Life in Hell strips.  These shorts of course became the wildly successful "The Simpsons", which propelled the infant FOX network into the Big Leagues. (And we all know how FOX later repaid Matt with their shabby treatment of Futurama.)

So when Futurama debuted, I was primed for a high-quality series. The fact that it was science fiction was a plus as well, I had been a fan of SF for a quarter of a century by the time Futurama first aired.

Space Pilot 3000, and yes, when I saw the first seconds I thought: No, this is shit, nothing for me.....But then, when Fry went to the future, meeting Leela and Bender, all began to be interesting. And now I´m a big fan of Futurama!!!  wink

The first episode I watched in its entirety was "A Fishful of Dollars". It was a pretty good way to start my experience with Futurama.

The first one I watched was "My Three Suns", but I missed the first half of it.

The First Episode I Watched Was "The Day the Earth Stood Stupid". I think it was sometime in 2004, when the third season was broadcast where I live. (I live in Sweden).
And I thought it was really funny, and I still do. big grin :P

My first was Love's Labours Lost in Space, I was told it wasn't appropriate for my current company (i. e. young family members) and the channel was changed, but I was still hooked from there on

The part where they have sex probably isn't appropriate for children either.

the first episode i ever watched was the premiere. being a fan of the simpsons(not religiously, but pretty damn close) and an even bigger fan of classic sci fi(twilight zone, tos), i was extremely excited for it's release. indeed, i even bought a magazine that had a preview for it.
i watched the whole first season in it's entirety, but wasn't really able to catch it for the final four(broadcast) seasons for a few reasons. i had just started working, and for the occasional times that i would be available to catch it, fox would end up not airing it because a football game ended too late or some other lame reason.
anyways, when the dvd's were released, i bought them immediately. soon after, i became a super nerd in regards to watching each episode WAY TOO MANY TIMES, including the commentary tracks.
and here we are, good times.

Don't quite remember. The first time I actually watched Futurama, I was only 9 or 10 and don't remember much from that long ago. I'm pretty sure I started from around season 4 and on, though.
But when I started watching again last year I started from the very beginning, Space Pilot 3000. Only way to go.

Yeah, I think it was during the 'freeze' sequence when the second time the flying saucers fly past, destroying civilization again -  that's when I thought: "this is fricken awesome."

Recall looking forward to "Groening's next thing," way back when, so of course "Space Pilot 3K" on the day of the premiere.

I believe I viewed it on some sort of "cathode-ray" device.

Same here, watched the first Simpsons skits on The Tracey Ullman Show.  And I found Futurama better than the Simpsons.  Got all the dvds and comic books in the collector's edition.

I remember Tracys show and the skits. First Futurama was the pilot when it first aired. I knew this wasn't your average crap. And what's kept me is how the story develops. Not like your average cartoon. The relationships, the inventions, the past. It all ties in. I like that.

I watched Space Pilot 3000 the first night it premiered. Strangely enough, I didn't love it...which is crazy, because looking back on it, it was just about perfect as a pilot episode.

Even more crazy, is that I remarked to other friends that that night's Simpsons episode (a completely forgettable episode where Homer gets a job as a truck driver, if I remember correctly) was funnier. Bleh...what a stupid kid I was! My only explanation was that I, a diehard Simpsons fan, was in denial that it had become so crappy, and saw Futurama as a "threat"...and so I got ultra-critical about it.

Interesting note: one of the very first times I ever met VelourFog, we (and another friend) sat in her living room and watched her vhs recording of Fear of a Bot Planet. At that time, we were not huge fans of the show, and we were not huge friends. But we watched it and laughed. Who ever would have guessed that it would lead us here?

Despite my criticism of the show, I tried to keep up with it before kind of forgetting about it when it moved to the 7pm timeslot. Eventually, sometime in season 3, VF sent me a bunch of episodes online and I fell in love with it. Watched every episode a million times, and then caught brand new episodes as they premiered on Fox.

The 1st one.

A friend told me the time and the tv channel that would be coming up with this 'new' show created by Matt Groening.

Xmas story, Fear of a Bot Planet, or A Head in Polls. I watched them all together ~4 years ago, so don't really remember the order + I wasn't interested in Futurama back then.

Mine was "A Big Piece of Garbage." That was also like my third and fifth episode. I really don't like it, oddly enough. laff It was just good enough to get me to tune in to what happened to be a really good episode later on a whim.

First episode I saw was "Roswell That Ends Well".  I was happy to find anything on TV that was as sharp, witty & satiric as that episode, and instantly became a fan.

"Space Pilot 3000" was also my first episode, and I liked it all right. But I didn't LOVE the show until the third episode, "I, Roommate". The Professor's alien mummy jerky sealed the deal for me.

I honestly can't remember, which really surprises me.  I was immediately drawn in by the interplay of the characters and it just hooked me.

The first thing I ever saw was the last third of The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings (don't remember how this happened, I guess I went to Hulu and clicked something randomly and that came up) and I was pretty much just "what is this madness." Space Pilot 3000 was my first full episode.
