Very hard question, and it's almost impossible to limit it down to one. So I'll just pick one of my favourates, 'Fry And The Slurm Factory'  smile

I possibly couldn't tell.
It 's too soon, and they still have to show the rest of the new episodes.

I'll go with "Luck of the Fryrish" but I haven't seen the rest of season 3 yet. Or season 4. Or 5.

Tough decision, although "Parasites Lost" and "Roswell That Ends Well" are one of them.  I really enjoyed Jurassic Bark, but since I saw it about a week ago, I can't really say its one of the best yet.

If I had to choose then I would go with Luck of the Fryish. It's just a really great episode.

Best ever? Wow, that's a question that's hard to answer. I like a lot of episodes for different reasons. It's difficult just to grab one, and say this is the hands-down best Futurama-episode in any field ever.

I love some for their emotional impact, the way they really get to you, and make you care deeply for the characters. This is an animated show, yet for some reason you care more for these people, than you do for 99% of the real-life shows out there. Episodes representing this segment is "Luck Of The Fryish", "Leela's Homeworld", "Time Keeps On Slipping" and "Parasites Lost". Of those it's a tie between "Luck Of The Fryish" and "Leela's Homeworld".

Some episodes are great because of the non-stop hillariousness the throw at you. Laughter from start to finish. Examples: "Xmas Story", "Love's Labours Lost In Space", "Roswell That Ends Well", "Amazon Woman In The Mood" and many more. Of those I'll have to go with "Roswell That Ends Well".

All shows however have at least one moment that make them standout. A clever parody, obscure homage, scating social comment or simply breathtaking animation.

To end with an obviuous comment: [ URL]They're all beautyful, baby.[ /URL]

Too tough to narrow down to one, But here are a few of my personal faves:

When Aliens Attack
The Problem With Popplers
Parasites Lost
Anthology Of Interest I

At the risk of listing them all, I'll stop here.

I still think Parasites Lost is the best episode.  It must be the hopeless romantic in me.  If you'll excuse me, I have to go read the latest issue of Hopelessly One-Sided Romance.

S1: When Aliens Attack and in a close second the Series Has Landed.
S2: The Problem with Popplers
S3: Amazon Women in the Mood
S4: Leela's Homeworld
It is hard picking out the best one from a season let alone for the entire run. Each episode has so much to offer. As Teral said some are funny and that is what strikes a chord with the viewer while others are sweet and tender like Leela's Homerworld or Luck of the Fryish. And still others knock you out with that Wow! factor. For me Jurrasic Bark was like that as are many of the shows that are heavy in 3D work. I just watch them and think how great they look without even paying attention to what is really going on with the storyline.

Futurama has to be appriciated in its entirety - no single episode can capture all the great things about this series. I notice how many folks have selected episodes which focus on one specific character - I'd say that's a sign of how great this series is....we love the characters as if they were "real" and not 2 dimensional drawings.
My favorite (not necessarily the "best" ) episode is "Godfellas" - mostly for personal reasons.
And of course - anything involving the Omicronians would go on my fav list.
