I voted Ken Keeler . . . without his episodes, the series just wouldn't feel complete to me.  A good portion of the classics (which have already been mentioned) were his babies.

:\ I'm so conflicted!

Lobstertainment and ALOHO were both too backward-thinking for my liking. Hollywood in the 31st Century was too similar to the way it is now, and ALOHO ruined the Blernsball game they invented in FOABP by turning it into merely baseball with a rubber string.

BTW, Kristin Gore wrote "Leela's Homeworld".

Yes, and she should NOT be nominated since that episode sucked donkey balls. Anyways, I already made a thread like this a while back, I'm glad to see that the thought has been resurrected.

As I said in my own writer thread that I made oblivious to this one, my vote goes to Ken Keeler for always writing interesting (if nothing else) episodes that keep with the futuristic/sci-fi theme of the show.

DXC has probably the most consistant list of good episodes to his name, go David!

I personally wasn't a fan of DXC's AOI1 segment. It seemed too much like David writing an episode simply to make his celebrity fantasies come true.  hmpf

I don't think Ken Keeler's written an episode I haven't really loved. PYHOMS, TKOS and Godfellas are all amongst the very best, and I loved Devil's Hands too.

Yeah, I agree with you.  His segment in Anthology of Interest II was so much better.

Yeah, "Godfellas" is a really funney episode I can't belive it's losing to "The Sting" in Fall Maddness thing.

*bump*

After watching the whole of Season 4 on DVD, had I not voted already I would've given Dan Vebber a vote. Love & Rocket and Obsoletely Fabulous are both big favourites of mine, and unlike a lot of people, I enjoyed The Route Of All Evil too. I thought it was pretty cool how the episode centred around the two somewhat-unexciting activities of brewing beer and delivering papers (which Vebber mentions in the commentary as a tribute to his dad) and yet turned out to be a pretty good episode.

 On a side note, has anyone else noticed patterns in the types of episodes that certain writers are credited with? For example, J. Stuart Burns often writes episodes that take the PE crew to a different world/enviroment/time, Lew Morton's episodes tend to be more down to earth with a lot of social commentary and Eric Horsted frequently (though not always) writes Bender centred episodes.

FRY: So this your lair
Zoo keeper: of course not you think i'd show you my lair, my lair is a thousand times nicer than this
FRY: Ok take it easy.

Bill Odenkirk -- because "The Farnsworth Parabox" is such a clever, entertaining episode. It is such pure sci-fi and also one of my favotites!

Ooh, I hadn't seen DHAIP at the time of posting... ack!

It's a draw, I think.  Ken Keeler as well.

Actually, every single one of them has written at least one good if not superb episode...
And you forgot Jeff Westbrook! (And Brian Kelly, Aaron Ehasz, Mike Rowe, David A Goodman and Kristin Gore).

I agree with Uns. You can't really compare the work of Kristin Gore, who has written one episode, to Lew Morton who has written nine.

 Also, Mike Rowe has not written a good episode.  tongue

It's so frustrating when a writer who is normally very good writes an episode that is very bad.  For example, in a single season, Eric Kaplan wrote one of the best episodes ever (Jurassic Bark), and one of the worst, if not THE worst episode ever (300 Big Boys).

Now I have to admit something, I saw 300 Big Boys recently and I really liked it. How come so many others don't?

I dont know people are crazy and probably dismiss episodes as bad because there's a guest star like roseanne or it doesn't revolve around fry and leela or it isn't very emotional

Oh, apart from the Roseanne part, that was pretty pointless. But the rest of the episode I really enjoyed.

I also liked 300 Big Boys alright.  It wasn't the best episode, but it gets a bad rap.  And Kaplan also wrote Parasites Lost.  In fact, if I could vote again, I might vote for him.  But J. Stewart Burns is another example.  He wrote Roswell, but also Cryonic Woman.  These are respectively close to the top and bottom.

Eric Kaplan doesn't really seem to have any particular pattern with his episodes though. He's got quite a range, although I guess one theme that crops up a couple of times is a scene based around a parody of an old sitcom.

ok does everyone here actually really like it or something.

i actually prefered cryonic woman to roswell
and 300 big boys to jurrasic bark.

roswell was good but its a little overated and jurrasic bark is very overated as is parasites lost i think actually.

but i wont to get into why i think that unless people actually want me to

 I liked them i just think there overated.
but ok 'parasites lost' was lacking in comedy, not much funny stuff in flying through fry's body or the worm battle.
'jurrasic bark' i didn't care for some stupid dog and maybe the first act was good but then it just got very slow and emotinal, not that i only care about the comedy all the time, it just didn't work for me, and why does fry care so much about his dog all of a sudden, he'd been coping fine until then.
As for 'roswell' i just didn't find many of the jokes funny and dont think they were as consistent as people made them out to be.

so there you go, your not going to change my mind so I wouldn't bother arguing.

I would vote for David X. as I loved TWOF although Rob Weiner has a special place to me as he wrote LOTF. Yet looking at all of them they have all written great episodes and it is very hard to choose! I think they're all great!

Lewis Morton and Bill Odenkirk.  They wrote for Newsradio and Mr. Show (The latter being my favorite show of all time) and brought their incredibly wacky senses of humor to Futurama.  Check out my actual averages of the writers in the greatest futurama writer thread

I voted for Ron Weiner because of LotF. That was probably my favorite episode.
