Rank order each segment of Reincarnation from best to worst.

My order goes section 2, section 1, then section 3. But I liked them all. Just found section 2 the most interesting, especially in terms of story.

Your thoughts?

2, 3, 1.

Y'know, since there are only a few possible combinations of the numbers 1, 2, and 3, it might be a good idea to add a poll to this thread, where people vote for the order that they agree with.

I loved the 8-bit universe for the nostalgia hit and general joke density, I loved the anime segment far more than I should've, for being an almost-perfect parody of the genre, and I enjoyed the B&W segment for being a brilliant piss-take of the source material.

I can't really say much more than that. Except that it's in good agreement with my original short review:

The middle segment amused me the most, but overall this was a fantastic episode. A brilliant way to end the season.

Loved the anime, too. The B&W stuff... meh.

Good thinking. Poll has been added!

1,2,3. The Black and White segment was by far the funniest of the 3 segments with lots of neet visuals and parodies of old cartoons. The 8-bit segment could've been done without the 8-bit style, but still had alot of good jokes and nostalgic video game references that made me smile. And for the anime segment, I liked it, but it didn't have as many laugh out loud jokes and I would've like a few more jokes about newer animes instead of only early, badly dubbed animes. Either way, I liked all 3 segments none the less, but segment 1 was my favorite.

The anime segment, to me, is one of the most hilarious seven-ish minutes of anything the show has ever done. It is just nonstop, madcap absurdity--and it is thoroughly delightful. In particular, I appreciate the nods to some larger continuity--the backstory with Leela's brother, whose loss she mourns, for example--beyond the confines of the particular segment we're made privy to, as if this ludicrously convoluted anime series actually exists. Oh, and the self-seriousness of normally goofy characters (Fry and Zoidberg, in particular) tickles me so; the straight-faced intensity with which they deliver each and every crazy line makes the whole segment about ten times funnier.

So, yeah, the anime segment is my favorite--but the Fleischer and 8-bit segments are just as brilliant in terms of both content and animation. I suppose I prefer the former just slightly over the latter--it has a few more laugh-out-loud-worthy moments, courtesy of the "aw, shucks" delivery of such scandalous lines as "So far I only got Amy pregnant" and "I thought you snuck off to take a dump"--but honestly, all three acts of this episode are 10/10-worthy to me. For this poll, though, I went with the fifth option: 3, 1, 2.

I agree with Gorky. The anime segment I believe is quite possibly the funniest thing Futurama has ever done. Simply everything was spot-on.

The 8-bit segment was also very good, but I feel like it didn't make the most out of the animation style compared to the other two.

The black and white segment was another hilarious parody full of references, and I thought the "new colour" idea was really clever.

So, I guess I'd rank them 3>1>2. All three of them managed to both parody the respective animation style while not straying too far from what makes Futurama great. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for SMFP.
