Hate to sound like a broken MP3 but my first was Space Pilot 3000. I was a huge Simpson's fan and was very refreshed that Futurama was witty and very funny.

I first saw a Clone of my own on Sky, before Futurama had started on C4.  I thought it was hilarious, especially the smelloscope  big grin and couldn't wait until it started on terrestrial (as I don't have sky at home   frown )

Welcome to PEEL, Osiris. Enjoy it here.   big grin

And just to make this post look less like spam:

I remember joining PEEL after only a few episodes (the first season or so, I think) and everbody was raving about season 3 and the upcoming season 4. I was totally out of the loop, and had several spoilers thrust upon me. Not that I complain, I'm drawn to spoilers like a moth (so kill me, Patrick Stewart!  tongue), and luckily I've managed to close the gap.

Anywho, first episode is still "The Series Has Landed".

My first episode was also 'The Series Has Landed.' Still one of my favorite episodes and probably has more to do with it being my first, although it is a fun episode.

Space Pilot 3000, first airing.

SEX SEX SEX!  Now that I have your attention:

Bookmark this one, kiddies.  The first I heard of the show was a year before the premiere.  Matt Groening was a guest on the NPR program "Fresh Air" with Terry Gross.  He was interviewed by TV critic David Bianculli about The Simpsons, and discussed The Simpsons movie plans, his plans for a live-action Krusty The Clown show, and finally, Futurama.

I waited impatiently for a year, not really ever believing that Futurama would see the light of day.  So to simply say I saw the pilot episode is an understatement of great magnitude.  I have not been disappointed with a single frame of what instantly became my favorite show.
Now, if you are interested, you can hear that clip from NPR on RealAudio.  Go to: http://freshair.npr.org/dayFA.cfm?todayDate=archive
Then do a search for "groening" under "Guests."  Listen to the April 22, 1998 stream.

For the more impatient among you, here's the link to the stream: http://www.npr.org/ramfiles/fa/19980422.fa.ram

The entire interview starts at the six minute mark (6:00) and goes to 16:10.  The bit about Futurama starts at 13:40. 

(Do yourself a favor and check out the whole site - Fresh Air has had some great programs.)

My first time *blushes* was the season premiere Space Pilot 3000.   When I saw the commercials for Futurama I thought it looked like some neat looking animated show that would probably be around for a season.

After seeing SP3k I was annoyed by the voices of Fry and Bender but I liked the "freshness" and futuristic feel.  So I kept the show on my radar but really didn't become an obsessive fan until I, Roomate and My 3 Suns turned me into the rabid Futurama fiend I am today.

I learned to love the voice acting as well.

I saw the second episode, "The Series Has Landed"

I think it is amazing how Futurama has the ability to make one step seem like a million miles.

I didn't see it for ages as i didn't have sky tv when it first came out. The first episodes i saw were from series two and i loved them. I've since bought the first series on DVD and really enjoyed all of them, can't wait for the next series to be released. Any dates yet?

I think it's 19 on this one, and seeing as we managed 13 episodes on the old shifts, we'll be fine getting in these 19.

Roll on......etc.

Nuff said, we're off-topic now.

*bump*

 First one I saw was "When Aliens Attack" on Sky One, and I remember very much enjoying the Ally McBeal parody (seeing as I was a fan of that show at the time...oh dear). To be honest though, I didn't really become obsessive about the show until I bought the Season 3 DVD boxset on a wild impulse earlier this year.

My first episode was Fish full of Dollars, which I... acquired through devious internetty means.  But, I made up for it, I bought the DVD sets.  Oh, and if I wasn't bored enough to watch more episodes, that would have been my last one, too.   I was unimpressed at first viewing (I appreciate it more now, though it still isn't my favourite).

Does the very first commercial promoting the show count?  It's either that or the afterthesuperbowl showing several months early of the pilot that I saw... and then I saw it again... and then again....

I missed Space Pilot 3000 (and in fact never managed to see it 'til the dvd came out), so my first episode was The Series Has Landed.  I'd been looking forward to Groening's new show and was instantly hooked.  I haven't had cable in a couple of years, but luckily have most of broadcast seasons 1-4 on tape, which are getting a bit worn out from excessive viewing.  Thank god for dvd!

Hmmm my first episode was SP3000 on the C4 premiere and I carried on watching the episodes there until they stopped showing them after shoving the show to late night slots. Very annoying when you don't have Sky.

The first ep I saw was Space Pilot 3000 the first time it aired on Fox (or was it Global?  Eh, doesn't matter, same difference).  I was underwhelemed, but figured The Simpsons took a while to get going, too.  Then, the next week, I saw The Series Has Landed, and thought it was great.  I never looked back.

Did any of you have a problem with Fry being a real person, a human? I thought it wouldn't be as funny as the Simpsons, because of it, but oooh I was wrong. (But what's with the word "crud"?)

Mine was: The series has landed. and i turned it on to see bender trying to finnagle the keys from the crane machine, and heard him say his "thats the woman who programmed me for evil" line, as he ran off with this extremely extended arms. since ive been a fan.
