"Mars University" Solid episode. I always liked it, particular Snooty house and Bender's quest to make Robot house cool again. Fry and Gunther were okay, but the real star is Farnsworth. He's great in this episode. The parody of Animal House was neat, and Gunther becoming president of FOX is an instant classic.
When Aliens Attack" Brilliant episode. Almost three seperate episode, merged to one. Good story, lots of jokes and awesome animation. To quote someone from the audio commentaries: the animation of the battle between DOOP and the mothershipe was "too good for tv"! Splendid work.
Fry & The Slurm Factory "Okay, not great. I wont destroy your planet." Average, but still entertaining.
I Second That Emotion" Good episode. Lots of Leela moments (as opposed to the last 3), and good use of Bender. Solid work, could've been outstanding if Katey Segal could do a convincing crying. That still irritates me. Last but not least this episode set in motion that fatal process, that made Leela a mutant.
Brannigan Begin Again" The best of these 5 episode, beating WAA just barely. Brannigan at his best. And Kif gets some screentime. Leela was great. Best Bender joke ever: "Don't worry Leela. Soon we'll look back at this and laugh. ... HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA...."
