'A Big Piece of Garbage'
A classic, especially from a Professor Farnsworth point of view. And we are introduced to his arch enemy, Wernstrum! Well written, plenty of great humour, Bart Simpson dolls, and a satisfying ending. Awesome ep  cool

Bendless Love
I love this episode, especially the begining parts: "Dark Matter Indicator?" "Making the noise." Bender's sleep bending, and Zoidberg's "cuddly pet slinky" exploding...that is one of my favorite parts of Futurama.

Watched it last nite and i really forgot how funny an episode it was. The scenes with Bender's frat and the Dean were hilarious. And the smart-ass monkey, that was one big perk.

'The Deep South'
I love this epsidoe, the whole fishing trip scene is some of the best Futurama ever written! The Atlanta part, although good, doesn't quite match up to the first half. However the ending picks up the pace again, making this one of the best overall Futurama eps  smile

Uh, the slurm one.

I usually don't go for these eps that turn into single movie parodies, but this episode was amazing! The Fry and Bender relationshop is beginning to bloom, as we see them eagerly playing with their new x-rayish toy. Fry is especially lovable in his fits of self destructive behavior, the apex being "Ow, my sperm!"  and him trying to gnaw off his arms making funny "nyeiah" sounds. Both jokes have the special Futurama brand of being at once cute and outrageous. 
The professor. Easily my favoritre supporting character, is top notch here. His line, "Tell them that I hate them" was pure wacky gold. another perfect joke. The ep gets a little slow once the gang boards the boat, but the finale is great, in which Fry discovers a how he can
have his cake and eat it too. Finally, the episode reaches legendary status when Slurms Mackenzie teaches us all the true meaning partying. "Babes...go on, there will be other parties for you."

Obsoletely Fabulous
Great episode, especially compared to 'Bend Her' I saw before this one. Some of the great scenes: robot fair, Bender in a can, sixpack of ducks, boar ("Now turn around" ), waterwheel ("Oh God, no! I want to live!" ), snail... I especially like the ending; there's quite a lot of thinking behind it. 5/5.

"Fry and the Slurm Factory"

If I had to point to one episode as my favorite of them all, it would be this one. It contains some of the funniest dialogue of the series, and actually accomplishes the task of spoofing a film without being obnoxious about it. In particular, the Grunka-Lunkas are a hilarious parody of the Oompa-Loompas.

--
Favorite moments:

Amy: Then take some Echinacea or St. John's wort.
Professor: Or a big fat placebo! It's all the same crap!

Professor: It may well be the cause of Bender's illness. But more importantly, it's a flimsy pretext to try out my latest invention.

Professor: Who are those horrible orange creatures over there?
Glermo: Why, those are the Grunka Lunkas! They work here in the Slurm factory.
Professor: Tell them I hate them!

Glermo: No food or drink allowed on the tour. You'll have to wait until you're partying with Slurms McKenzie.
Fry: When will that be?
Glermo: Soon enough!
Fry: That's not soon enough.
 
Fry: My god. What if the secret ingredient...is people?
Leela: No, there's already a soda like that. Soylent Cola.
Fry: Oh. How is it?
Leela: It varies from person to person.

Fry drinking the Slurm three times after he learns the secret ingredient.

Bender: I can't see what's happening. Are we boned?
Leela: Yeah, we're boned.

Fry's single tear falling into the Slurm.

The gnawing noise Billy West makes when Fry tries to chew off his arms.

The Slurm Bender drinks draining down to Fry through the hole in his casing.

Hilarious episode.

Anthology of Interest. I've always felt this episode to be overrated. It's a bit too mean spirited with somehow cheap writing. I can't put my finger on it, but the first part was just kind of cruel and the second part had too many winks to the audience. I love the third part though. Anyone wonder if maybe the entire Futurama series is just the "What If" of the Professor? I hope not. 7.5/10

Just finished watching (recording) :

Philip J Fry - VIP (The why of Fry)

I haven't seen the original for some time now, so this judgement is based on the German translation.

The first part (until Nibbler kidnapped Fry) was on one hand kind of annoying, and on the other hand boring.
Annoying because I think it doesn't fit in the "normal" image of Futurama, that Leela and Bender are assholes like that against Fry, normally these three were the best friends, even if somebody of them fails. Boring because there was no joke, not even the smallest, in there. Emotional wasn't it either.

The second part (until the end) got better. Combrink (the translator-guy) finally arrived in the fun zone. The dialog with the Nibblonans and the brains brought some laughter, although the english version is much better as I remember.
The kissing/hugging scene in the end again was too flat, not really emotional.

I rate the German-version 5/10.
Mainly because of bad translation / lack of jokes.

The plot was very good though 9/10.
only 9 because of Leela and Bender in the beginning.

Mother's Day
This episode is very good at making me cringe--as soon as I got over the geezer lovin', Comrade Greeting Card's voice started to make me shudder; I can only assume something new will replace that one when I get enough of a brain callous to endure it--but it's among my most watched Season Two eps. I figure this either serves as a mark of how funny and well-written it is or proves I'm a masochist. Either way, I give it full points.

I Second That Emotion
I watch them on Cartoon Network not cuz im too poor to afford dvds im just not gonna pay forty bucks for something cartoons network shows five time a week. Anyway its a hilarious episode w/ many great Bender quirks. It starts his rivalry w/ the can opener, it shows how much he loves the Globetrotters..... Id give it an 8/10 a good episode but it really lacks in some aspects.
Best Line: "How could you flush Nibbler down the toilet?" - Leela
"Well first I had to lift the seat.... that was the first annoyance. Am I right Gentlemen?" - Bender

Good times

I shall review for you souls 'The Farnsworth Parabox'

Now, this is a very good episode for me, had enough laughs and ideas to keep me thinking. Nice to see the parallel characters from Universe 1A (or whatever, it's been 2 days since I saw it) and I think it was just one of those fun episodes (though I hate the PAL mastering of it, every character is pitched too low!)

Grade: B

A Head In The Polls

Whilst many people feel that the latter two seasons of Futurama are where it's at in terms of plots, characterisation and whatnot, an often overlooked aspect of said seasons (mainly Seaon 4) is what I'd consider to be a diminished quality in gags. On the other hand, maybe they used up all their best material on Season 2 episodes like this gem.  big grin

 In terms of gags, this is pure class. The first act packs in the political gags in thick and fast with "The Thrill Of Politics" and the voting registration scene. Zoidberg's line about testing cosmetics on humans bypassed me up until now and the Hemp party man is always hillarious.
Bender's pompousity as a disembodied-head-with-money is a master-touch and adds a nice dash of character to follow the political gags.
The head museum section, despite the president jokes not translating too well to my UK cultured ears, is solid, bar the near pointless Claudia Schiffer cameo.
From thereon, the plot takes over, with plenty of Nixon gags (again, a few lost on me but I can certainly appreciate them) thrown in before the final run of politcal gags at the end - "Well it's not my fault either: I forgot to vote!".
But the best joke in the entire show? "Magic Tentacles - Thought Activated". So utterly ludicrous and yet perversely I don't think any other gag could've taken it's place. I'd love to know who pitched that one so I could steal their DNA and use it to make my own show.  wink

For me, the best episodes of Futurama are those so jam-packed with good material you notice something new everytime you watch it and for me this is one of them. Despite sagging (very) briefly in the middle, this is one of the classics.  smile

Hell is Other Robots

This is one of the first episodes of Futurama I saw. I love the song and the jokes about "Jacking On". Also, we meet the Robot Devil for the first time...I love that guy. overall I'd give it a 7/10...good but not great.

*Bumped!* I've had some time off from my classes, so I watched my DVD's

"Jurassic Bark"

The best episode ever. 'Nuff said.

Grade 10/10


"The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings"

Brilliantly plotted, brilliantly scripted, brilliantly writen music. It was all done so... brilliantly! I tend to like shippiness better when no one makes a huge deal about it (eg "The Farnsworth Parabox" ). This is the exception. The Fry/Leela stuff was done perfectly and put in to such an awesome plot. That scene at the end was so touching.

Grade: 10/10


"The Sting"

Ugh. See, this is what I consider "bad shippiness". Not only is the episode excruciatingly over dramatic for the most part, but some scenes are downright painful to watch. On top of that, I honestly didn't laugh once. I can't believe that a genius like Patrick Verrone is behind this.

Grade: 2/10


"Where No Fan Has Gone Before"

Fantastic episode. I've never really seen a full episode of Star Trek, but I actually managed to pick up some of the references.

Grade: 9/10

Last episode seen: "Episode Two: The Series has Landed", last night, on Adult Swim.  It's not the best episode, and not necessarily in my favorites list, but this time it really hit me with some nostalgia.  I've seen it before, right after watching the end of the series on Adult Swim, but how far the series came in such a short time really struck me this time.  I don't know if it was the huge difference in the Professor's voice, or what, but it did relly hit me this time.  Overall, it's maybe about a 7/10.

The Sting

Leelaholic sucks.  I have explained why this episode kicks ass many other places on this board, but I just re-watched it and thought I'd say that this is still my favorite episode, and is still the only thing ever on TV to make me cry.  No, not this time, the first time I saw it.  I'm not a complete pussy.

And another thing, Leelaholic, you complain about them going overboard on the shippy?  (Something they never did on the show, in my opinion, it was always tasteful if sometimes depressing)  This was one of several episodes where any feelings beyond friendship on Leela's side were purely implied.  I know I'd go crazy with grief if I held myself responsible for the death of my best friend.

No comedy?
- The first act
- The funeral scene
- All the ridiculously random callbacks
 
Quote
Some sort, yes.  In France it's called a guillotine

Did I miss something fun
- Bee Happy, though to be honest I seem to be one of the few here who likes random musical numbers.

And many others (though it was usually dark humor,) but this is way longer a rant then I expected it to be, so I'll stop here.

Your other scores are pretty spot on, though.

I didn't see this recently, but the 'Spanish Fry' commentary had me crying tears, it was so funny.
As for the last episode, I am currently in the process of trying to watch one episode per day on my DVD's, in Production Season order. (Including the commentary, & bonus features.)

Last Episode I Saw: 'I Roomate'
Score: 7/10
Comments: It was funny, and expanded the relationship between Bender and Fry, but shows you that Futurama would've been cancelled in the 1st Season if the writers had listened to FOX's notes. (Hell, even in the commentary, they say FOX hated the episode, even though the writers WERE WRITING IT TO FOX'S SPECIFICATIONS!)

N-o-r: Second.  Although "The Sting" isn't my favorite ("Luck of the Fryrish" is), I do think it was the best written episode.  A while ago I almost changed my favorite, and that wasn't just because of the Emmy nom.

Nes: Isn't that the one where Billy just sang "Fu-tu-ram-a" over and over again for the theme song?

Eyedol: That's one of the things that assures me FOX was stupid in their "handling" of the show.  Though I liked "I, Roommate", it wasn't the best.  "Down to earth" sucks.  Oh, I watched that tonight, too, and that's sorta my review.

Everything N-o-R said about The Sting, plus the Bender randomly on fire bit, minus the part about crying.  Not to say I wasn't moved, becuase I was, but just not as much. Like I said on another thread, the only thing I would have changed is that I would have had Fry last longer after he reformed from the royal jelly.

Last Episode I Saw: 'Love's Labors Lost In Space'
Score: 9/10
Comments: Hilarious. The best episode with Kif, hands down. Loved the song when the crew was catching the animals. Unfortuantely, not a 10/10, because it was just lacking something I can't quite place my finger on.

The last episode I saw was 'A Pharaoh to Remember. Its a bit annoying when Bender proceeds to the throne; he still treats Leela and Fry like slaves.  Aren't they supposed to be friends?  I did not quite like that bit, but other than that the rest of the episode is funny as usual. 6.5/10.

Again, I apologize.

Last Episode I saw: 'Raging Bender'
Score: 8/10
Comments: It was OK. The story wasn't that good though. But the story the commentators talked about sounded extremely cool.

Same thoughts. But the commentary for that is a 10/10.

EPISODE: "The Deep South"
SCORE: 10/10
COMMENTS: The entire episode had some good jokes throughout. I especially like the Laws of Physics joke at the end (Zoidberg's house burns down & Bender smoking his cigar), since I'm currently in that class. But the funniest line for me is when Fry is running away at the end and says the following.
"Why couldn't she be the other kind of mermaid, with the fish part on the top, and the lady part on the bottom?"
^Or something like that.

'Insane in the Mainframe'

I can never tire of seeing Roberto rob that bank. Had the show continued, I could see the P.E gang in the Bank in a future ep, and then suddenly Reberto comes back in to rob it, in Season 10 or something  laff But yeah, cloolsome episode, the whole vibe is great, and it's really funny too...

Jurrasic Bark (DVD)- My favorite episode of all time. I cried the first time I saw it, but now it brings a smile to my face to watch it. I love rewtaching this ep because it reminds me of all the good times I've had with Futurama and how it's tugged at every one of my emotions at one point or another.
