Okay, here's the second of our polls, covering the first part of Season 2 (and once again, we're going by airing season here 'cause it works out better). The polls close at Midnight on Saturday Night ('cause I won't be here Friday night), so you've got an extra day to vote!

Crustacean in Love. I mean come on, what's better than a (good) ep about Zoidy and his species' mating rituals?

EDIT: How are you separating these eps, Kryten? You said you were going by airing season, but PYHOMS aired the week before Lesser of Two Evils.

Wow, it's a tough call considering it contains Mars University, Xmas Story, Brannigan Begin Again and Why Must I Be A Crustacean In Love, but I'm voting for When Aliens Attack. It's just so damn funny!

Oh, and for the record - I'm predicting that WMIBACIL will win this vote, as it seems to be incredibly favoured. Still, that's not changing my vote one little bit.

I voted "Fry and the slurm factory" purely for the joke about Fry still being hopelessly addicted to Slurm, even after finding out what it is....it's so damn funny it's like when I found out how Mcdonalds make the ice cream for their sundaes....I didn't care cos they are so nice  tongue

Also it's so hard to pick a fave for this season, in my opinion this is where the show really took off and started to become the laugh a minute fest that we all love....  big grin

As much as I love Zoidberg, 'Why Must I Be A Crustacean In Love' wasn't particularly amazing, however 'Xmas Story' is both great and has great Zoidberg...

"You've all been very naughty boys and girls, except for you Dr. Zoidberg this is for you." - "Weeeeeeeee, a pogo stick!"

So Xmas Story get's my vote.

Hmm, though decision between "A Head In The Polls" (political satire, and Nixon, how is that not hillarious?) and "Xmas Story" (the perfect Futurama episode).

I guess I'll go with "Xmas Story" just for the extra added bonus of Robot Santa.

I know my fav episodes of seasons, but since it's not on this list, 'Xmas Story' is my close second.

A Flight To Remember vs. Xmas Story. Toughy.  Well, Zapp and Kif are in A Flight To Remeber, and since it's the under dog, I'll go with it.

I'd have to say WMIBACIL. The gags are constant (especially earlier in the episode) and its the first time we get to learn more about Zoidberg's characters. Funny stuff.

10 good solid reasons why Mars University deserves your adoration:

1. The Coney Island College gag. (also, his awesome mullett in the flashback scene)
2.Lite-Brite joke.
3.Fry's slitty eyed "I don't like you"
4.Fry's fruit punch spit-take (although you really need the commmentary to appreciate this moment)
5."I'll need ten kegs of beer, a continuous tape of 'Louie Louie', and a regulation, two-story panty-raid ladder."
6.Marilyn Vos Savant reference... priceless.
7.FatBot. (best robot ever)
8."All I want out of life is to be a monkey of moderate intelligence who wears a suit. That's why I've decided to go to business school."
9.Woodpecker joke.
10.Fry snickering when Geunter tries to put the hat on his butt despite the fact that his life is at stake.

Mix all of these gems in with the great Mars landscape and the fact that EVERYONE loves a good Animal House/Revenge of the Nerds/etc. spoof...

It's pure magic.  I see no rational argument against that. But, apparently I am always the unpopular vote.

Oh well, I guess that means that I can keep this episode all to myself.

mh I find many of those episodes equally good for different reasons. I more or less just randomly pick Xmas Story.

Wow, this is a tough choice! Having said that, I went with Fry & the Slurm Factory. The Grunka-lunkas and the Professor's 'Tell them I hate them!' line put it over the top for me. Probably the best parody episode Futurama has done.

If it had just been the whole of 'proper' season one i would have gone with fry and the slurm factory as well. but well wmibacil is such a good episode.

Best of Season 1. But in a close second is... Why Must I Be A Crustacean in Love.

Why so little love for A Head in the Polls?  It had hilarious writing, great political satire, some of the best voicing ever (can't go wrong with West as Nixon), lots of great subtle gags ("Who's kicking who around now!" )....best of season 2 easily.

It's a tie between "Why Must I Be A Crustacean In Love?" or "X-Mas Story".

The Most Perfectly Balanced Episode (TM), and extra points because the ending music makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.

Ack! Too many good ones in this list.  Hmmm.....

Got to go with When Aliens Attack, although three others are tied for a very, very close second.  I'm just using my "when in doubt, go with Lrrr" system of voting.  Put me down for "Popplers" in the next round.

Lest anyone wonder why the song would affect me that way, I was talking about the little instrumental riff just afterward.  I can give myself goosebumps just humming it.  Too bad we can't display musical notation here.

OT: Is there a thread for people whose experience of the music on Futurama is unusually vivid?

I voted for Brannigan, Begin Again because it's about one of my favorite characters on the show: Zapp Brannigan.

Favorite Quotes-
1. Zapp: "Rock crushes scissors. But, paper covers rock and scissors cuts paper. Kif we have a conundrum."

Kif :(Sighs)

Zapp: "Search them for paper and bring me a rock".

2. Zapp: "One day a man has everything, the next day, he blows up a 4 million dollar space station and the next day he has nothing. It makes you think".

Kif: "No it dosen't".

3. Zapp: "Come Kif, we have work to do". (holds razor)

Kif: (whispers to Leela) "I'll call and tell you about it".

Leela: (sighs)
