Attack of the Killer App [39]
The Futurama Holiday Spectacular [42] +1
Yo Leela Leela [8]
The Butterjunk Effect [15] -2


"A Leela of Her Own" would be one of my weakest FOX run episodes, but still an 8/10.

Pretty good bottom 10 list. There's only two I don't agree on ("The Cryonic Woman" and "A Leela of Her Own")

Most of the original run is a lot better than the Comedy Central era in my opinion. Then again, I watched all the episodes for the first time in their broadcast order

That'd be it. I didn't notice Boxy had put SMFP in already and it had been edited later. tongue

Pay no attention to this post.

The FOX run isn't perfect. However, I will stick to my guns on saying there were no episodes in the original 72 that sink as low as the worst Comedy Central episodes at the very least.

Still, presumably not a single FOX run episode is in your bottom ten? That's...surprising.

"Kif Gets Knocked Up A Notch" and "Where the Buggalo Roam" will probably escape it now, as quite a few Season 7 episodes aren't holding up for me on second and third re-watch.

I'm with AdrenalinDragon on this. The worst episodes from the Fox run still get a 7/10 from me, but when the Comedy Central run was bad, it was really bad.

Minus two to TFHS because of the second segment which I actually love and can forgive the episode a little for. I can't forgive Susan Boil.

The second segment in The Futurama Holiday Spectacular is definitely the most watchable part of that episode. Too bad the other two were really awful though. Those talking bees still give me the shivers after all these years.

I concur about "Holiday Craptacular". The second segment isn't too bad at all. It's not great, but it's passable. If the whole episode had been to that standard, I don't think it would come close to being considered "the" worst episode of the show by so many people.

No way is the Holiday Spectacular a worse episode than Attack of the Killer App. The former had a reference to "the 30 years squirts" and can at least be forgiven for being non-canon. The latter had a shitting/vomiting goat, jokes about iPhones and YouTubes, and *shudder* Susan Boil. AND IT WAS CANON. cry

I found Susan Boil less cringeworthy than the talking bees, and it's the funnier episode for me.

Yeah, for sure. As much as I don't like AOTKA, I can at least think of a handful of funny gags.

The best I can come up with for TFHS is that it made me exhale slightly more air than usual a few timers.

It's hard to argue that Susan Boil isn't one of the worst things Futurama has ever created because, well, it is. It's incredibly unfunny, disturbing, breaks continuity and will lose all meaning in years to come. However, I've never really disliked "Attack of the Killer App" as it has a pretty cohesive story, some good gags and nice uses of future technology.

"The Futurama Holiday Spectacular" is incredibly dull, the stories feel thrown together with no rhyme or reason, has very few jokes and ruins the Space Bees from the previous episode in which they appeared. It's not very good at all.

I know I've probably said this before but I really don't see how something from a non-canon episode can actually ruin anything. Saying the stuff with the bees in TFHS ruins them is like saying The Un-Freeze of a Lifetime ruins Space Pilot 3000.

Yeah, the story basically, without all the shit, isn't bad at all in my opinion.

TFHS is just forgettable, non-canon, unfunny and uninteresting for the most part.
