This means plots that center secondary (or even some tertiary) characters such as Lrrr or Richard Nixon.

In my opinion, I liked "Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences" the most.

I loved that Time Travel song. I still do. It's far from forgettable.

The Late Phillip J. Fry was arguably the best episode over hands down. Each of those futures represented something that's been in Science Fiction, or a few may have been just put in there for the sheer fun of it. It's Futurama, not Doctor Who. Not everything needs to be 100% realistic. The ongoing plot should have been enough to keep you at the edge of your seat, not scratching your invisible beard thinking about what possible flaws you can point out.

Also, I loved Fun on a Bun and Inhuman Torch. The premise of Oktoberfest and Love sound a bit far fetched, but the episodes themselves were executed brilliantly. In Fact, I wouldn't exactly call a sun-creature from the sun really far fetched. I mean it's Science Fiction, and that's what Futurama is all about. The dude who wrote it writes plenty of other Sci-Fi stuff as well.

Oh, and the future with the intelligent pink aliens isn't "too far fetched". They basically explained that it was human evolution, which is still ongoing. (Although it is weird it takes 47 million years until such actual progress is made.)

It's accurate, but only to within one-tenth of a plausibility unit. Accuracy and precision aren't the same thing, and we don't know exactly how large the gap between reality and a reality that's off by one-tenth of a plausibility unit is. In a universe that's off by one-tenth of a plausibility unit, winna could be some sort of mighty galactic entity hellbent on devouring all of creation. And in this reality, I would never do that because all of my stuff is here.

The actual answer is that in the real world if Fry changed even the slightest variable his dick would fall off and he would become a cop by eating a scorpion that had been on his healthy purple berries.

Also, Bender would become a pony robot. CRUSH; KILL; DESTROY; SWAG.

Do you write poetry or do you consider it more free form like painting?  I think I always thought of myself as more rigid. smile

I think I may have misused the term 'forgettable' in my last post. What I was trying to say was that I didn't think it stood out as much as past songs from this show have. For example, I didn't think it was as catchy as 'Robot Hell', or as funny as 'I May as Well Jump'. It definitely was memorable, though. I can easily recall the tune, along with some of the lyrics.

I suppose the Pink Aliens future does make more sense when explained as Human Evolution, and I didn't exactly catch on to the fact that most of those futures were parodies of sorts (I know, I know, I'm Stupid  roll eyes). For people who don't catch on to that fact, those futures seem very odd, the way I did.

 I do think that this episode is very well done, and Is one of the show's very best episodes. That doesn't mean that there's not any flaws in it, however. For example, I think the episode could've done without is all the sex scenes with Bender. I Felt like there very just pinned on there to give the episode an unnecessary edge. However, Like UnrealLegend said, the main plot was great enough to perfectly conceal the few faults.

Also, thank you for noting my Invisible Beard's existence. It shall receive an extra stroke tonight in honor of you, Unreal.

Where did I say that? I don't think TLPJF has any faults. Though I guess your point still stands. The plot was great enough to conceal the lack of faults. tongue

I actually remember being a tad disappointed with The Late Philip J. Fry upon my initial viewing, purely because it was the episode I was most looking forward to and I was expecting something far different. Obviously, that sentiment completely disappeared shortly thereafter, so I'm going to have to disagree with UrL and say that it was perfect. smile

I agree. I personally think that the reason most people like it is because it's shippy. Yes, there were other reasons to like it, but for alot of people I think that may very well be the sole reason. In fact, have you ever noticed how every shippy episode has either a 9/10 or a 10/10? I understand that they're usually great, but even the poor shippy ones have pretty high ratings. Has anybody else noticed that?

I've noticed that too. Not4You2Know was actually right - basically all the episodes that are praised as "the best of the series" (apart from Roswell, Bark and Fryrish) have shippy elements. Unfair, IMO.

It's not because the episodes were "shippy".

For example, Overclockwise was a abomination of an episode, do you see me praising it for it's shippy elements?

Also, the "overrated shippy episodes" show the best of Futurama's writing and creativity most of the time. Like Parasites Lost. Yeah, it had some really good "Shippy elements", but it was still hilarious at the same time with the crew wiggling through Fry's worm infested bowls. And look at The Devils Hands Are Idle Playthings. Shippy-ness played a big part on that episode, but it never stopped you kids from praising it, now did it?

Fun on a Bun was also a great episode, because:

A) Was Really Funny
B) The plot moved along quite nicely, and the story was actually really good.
C) Everything was executed brilliantly.

This seems to be the case with most "shippy episodes", hence why I find them to be so good. I don't know about others, but I find them good for mainly these 3 reasons. Again, it purely shows the best of Futurama's writing abilities.

Saying that an episode is overrated because it's very shippy is just plain stupid. Leela and The Genestalk was shippy as well, do you see people praising that episode?

My whole post just goes to show that your post is invalid in so many ways.

But people don't praise "Leela and The Genestalk", even though that episode had more than enough of it's fair share of shippy moments.

No, those weren't very good either. Professor one was meh, but Bender+Freela one sucked.

People do seem to praise Leela and the Genestalk quite a bit, way more than Overclockwise.  

Overclockwise people used to love but for some reason now hate. I also get the feeling that LatG (much like Three Hundred Big Boys) will be praised way more years after it aired.  

Also what's wrong with the Bender segment in Overclockwise?  I think it was you that used to praise that subplot...   confused

The shippy episodes are often well-written. I don't consider myself a shipper, but a lot of the best episodes are a load of ship.

Forgive me if this has been discussed before.  In some episodes such as The Route of All Evil, Bots And The Bees, the 2010 X Mas special, and The Six Million Dollar Mon, it shows that Hermes and his family all live in space.

Is that space house of his in NNY?  Or does he live in space and work in NNY?

LaTG was good in different ways.
There was part of the plot that centers genetic-engineering.
You got Fry vowing to love Leela no matter what kind of thing she turns into.
I think LaTG is the best Leela-centered episode in the entire series (not including series finales and other exceptions).

Right, but what statement are you actually trying to make about it? And how does it pertain to their brief appearance in The Simpsons? From all I can tell, it was a throwaway cameo with absolutely no further meaning behind it. Not to mention it pre-dated Meanwhile by over a year. roll eyes

You were the one who brought up their Simpsons cameo and then implied that it somehow had something to do with that Futurama episode (which, again, came AFTER it):
