i never really jugde shows before i see them, but i dont really like the bender episodes much, there are couple of good bender ones but bender is basically not what i would call main charcter material (no offence to all bender lovers)

I agree, I think Bender is good in small doses(I.E being a background character).

I liked all of the Bender episodes. Even "A Pharaoh To Remember".

I'm not sure what to think.  Bender is the greatest character in the history of television, but they tend to screw him up when they drift too far out of character.  His whole strength is that he's so consistently dead-on.  When they do things like make him cry in I Second That Emotion, it doesn't work as well.  So the kind of foray into new territory they're planning for Bend Her could backfire. 
On the other hand, Bender is great, so it could be awesome.  Now that I think about it, I Second That Emotion wasn't that bad.

Yeah, but like Teral pointed out on the previous page, episodes centered around a gender change are usually not that good.

What I don't understand is how anyone could say "Three Hundred Big Boys" was a good episode. "Three Hundred" was a disgrace to Futurama; a disgrace to all that is Matt Groening.

Bender-centric episodes are great. Not the best episodes but still great. Futurama doesn't have to involve all the characters in every episode.

Futurama can't get much crappier than A Leela of Their Own, or Crimes of the Hot, so these last 5 episodes should definitely be decent. Unless they're also like "Three Hundred Big Boys". Gwuck.

Why don't we wait until those shows are aired before we judge them negatively? Reading this thread reminds me of the Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons going "Worst episode ever."  smile

Oh come on! Crimes of the Hot was great, so was Big Boys! But I agree with you on A Leela of her Own, it's definetly the weakest episode 9there's lots of good stuff in it though).

Big Boys was a season 14 Simpsons episode that just happened to have Fry and crew. Now, some people like season 14 Simpsons episodes, but I don't care for their outdated attempts at being topical, the poor "we're so wacky" comedy that isn't really that wacky or inspired, the incidental characters who have an unfunny gimmick that repeats itself throughout the episode, the lack of direction and structure in the stories, the cheap attempts to make us sympathize for characters for the stupidest reasons, and the lazy-ass endings which often break the fourth wall. "Three Hundred Big Boys" had all that and more (and the incidental character? the whale biologist). It is the worst Futurama episode of all time, and a mockery of what the series is about.

Oh yeah, forgot: Lame guest star cameo who serves no purpose in the story, and is inserted only to put money in the person's wallet. AKA, Roseanne Barr.

It reminds me of the Critic episode "Jay in LA", where the executive tells Jay about how he wants to put a giant 50-foot duracell battery in the film, voiced by pat merrida.

I rather liked that episode. Fry almost kills himself with coffee but in the end reaches a Zen-like state of transcendence, Zoidberg's quest to live like rich people... it had good moments. Much better than the Simpsons episodes you are talking about, that feel like mediocre fan fictions... Man, I used to love that show but somebody should put it out of its misery.

Why are we judgig things already?

Let's let things air... look forward to what you think will be the good monets.

I can't wait to see Benmder (a great character) scamming calculon ( a crappy but easy-t-hate character).

I can't wait to see space poachers come after Fry.

The upcoming episodes are all we have left! Don;t damage what may become your greatest memories of Futurama!

Count on FOX to screw up the production order again. According to the production order, "Bender should not be allowed on TV"(4ACV06) would have been before "Bend-Her"(4ACV13)...
