Hey guys! I’m kind of new here, so I don’t know if this have been debated before.. But what is your all time worst futurama episode experience? The worst episode I have ever seen, is the one I saw last night on Norwegian tv (In Denmark they started to run the oldest episodes a couple of months ago, so if I want to catch up with the newest episodes, I need to watch an episode every day. And they do that on Norwegian tv). So, anyway, the episode is where Dr. Zoidberg.. uhh.. gets horny, if you will... So they travel to his planet and stuff. I didn’t think it was funny at all. Okay, Benders "What is this, the middle ages?"-line was pretty funny, but that was it.

But what about you?

Personally, I like pretty much all of them...
however, The Cryogenic Woman started out really well but died when he met his old girlfriend. I hate the second half of that episode, and the ending wasn't very good. Im pretty new too and i havent seen his done before

It's easy to talk about your favourites, but when it comes to the real pants...tricky.

The Slurm Episode was funny, but the scene when they're in the factory and the gnomes sing was just...castrated. I can't tell it in any other way. The joke was just sterilized...but maybe it wasn't meant to be a joke at all?

Looks like I've been thinking too much again in the last few minutes  sleep

Bendless Love was a really painful experience. The worst Bender episode, and there are quite a few contenders for that honor.  sleep

It's not too hard to discern 'bad' episodes, but 'worst' causes more trouble. Every episode of Futurama has at least one great gag in it, which saves it from being utter crap.

That's Lobstertainment was pretty bad...but I think it had a few redeeming moments, I just can't remember what they were.

However, there was nothing that could've saved Bendin' in the Wind.  Even thought I liked the beginning, it started sucking once bender got caught in the can opener.  I can't stand when they use celebrity guests for more than a joke or two, and they went so far as to make Beck a central part of the plot.  I don't know about the rest of you, but I couldn't stop cringing while watching this one with my family...it was just so bad.

Bendless Love also had a pretty high cringe factor, but at least it wasn't a celebrity sellout.  So I guess out of the three, I'd have to pick Bendin' in the Wind as the worst.

"That's Lobstertainment" wasn't that great. I never really liked "The Honking" but that might have been because I only got to see the first half of it when it first aired. A lot of episodes haven't been far above par, but they've all had their moments.

One thing I know for sure: the worst episodes were in season 3. Bendless Love, Th honking, Cryogenic Woman (or whatever the name was) were horrible. I guess I'll vote for Cryo-something woman.

I don't know why so many people hate the honking, I though it was about average, my worst would be the cryo women, 2nd worst was bendin in the wind.

Bah...everyone's down on Cryogenic Woman. I thought it was pretty good. Sure, the premise is unbelievable, and Pauly Shore sucks an [edited], but the show had a lot of hilarious jokes.

I'm surprised no one's mentioned The Lesser Of Two Evils.  It's the single most forgettable ep.  Seriously, I can't remember one joke from it.  Everything else I can think of at least one.

It's the one with Bender's "evil" twin. And yeah, that was a weak ep. Not bad, just forgettable. Plus it led to "Bendless Love".

what about the ep in which leela fighted against her former trainer (i really can't recall the name of that ep....but i hope some of you will).
everyone isn't really happy with season three - i haven't seen it yet (thanx to german-tv) but i hope that it will not be too bad!

i think he was called fnog

german season 3 ... march 2002
like in the usa, malcom stole its slot

worst episode: i have to vote for the cryonic woman, too. a comeback episode would have had to be much better, plus it makes the story of fry being frozen less unique. Whats next ? Luigi ? I dont want that ...

Just what on earth are you talking about?  Comeback episode?  Luigi?  I'm confused.

Now I’m confused. Why would anyone dislike the "Lesser of two evils" episode? I found it hilarious! And I remember it perfectly. But then again, maybe it’s because I saw it today?  confused

"That little scamp you pulled did a little number on my back. Do you mind rubbing it for me?"
"Of course not. How is this?"
"Lower.. Lower.."
"What about now?"
"Excellent. A little lower though.."
"I.. I can’t get any lower than this."
"I’ll say, you’re rubbing my ass! Aahahahaha.."

Or something like that. Hilarious!

I thought Hell is other Robots was pretty funny. I liked the song, it sounded cool with the Beastie Boys.

I didn't like 'Mothers Day' that much, but haven't seen any of Seasno 3 yet, bloody Australian TV, and some of them don't sound that good so it could change.

I just watched an ep which may already have been mentioned (I never know the names of them) but it was the one where they get trapped underwater, and it was so forgettable.

There's a few actually not so good episodes in Futurama history. Those are "Fear of a bot planet", "Why must I be a Crustacean in love?", "A bicyclops built for two" and maybe a few others. Season 3 was a bit of a disappointment for me all together, but I can't remember the bad ones.

The worst episode is definately "Fear of a Bot Planet". The animation and CGI is crappy, the plot is thin and the episode is just...boring. "Deep South" is not very good either, although I love that fishing sequence.

'The Cryonic Woman'... "Worst. Episode. Ever."

Closely followed by 'That's Lobstertainment!' Spoofing silent movies? Cutting-edge stuff!

My top three worst episodes(1 being the worst):
1. Fear of a Bot Planet
2. The Lesser of Two Evils
3. Bendless Love
You'll see from that I don't really think Flexo works as a character
I really can't believe someone just mentioned The Deep South as a bad episode. It was one of season 2's best episodes
