Reading through different peoples thoughts regarding Futurama episodes I've realised that Teral has almost exactly the same opinions as me. I've read many of Teral's reviews in other threads and our opinions are frighteningly similar. For example I loved "AOI 1" and was dissapointed with "AOI 2". I still though "AOI 2" was great but not what I hoped it would be, and just like Teral I thought the "wizzin" part was best.

Reading your review in the AOI II-thread, I had the exact same feeling, Otis. Our oppinions was frightingly similar. Spooky, eh? (Que, Twilight Zone-theme)  smile

Dude, that sounds like the coolest song ever. Beachie Boys rules.

Once they do make Leela-toboggans, I'll see you all on the slopes.

the honking was crappy crap crap, but just because it was so obscure. if you do a horror movie spoof, do it right. the modem thing was pathetic, and bender's teraforming was ridiculous. the psychic nearlly made it, but not quite. the one good bit i can remember in that ep, the son and daughter bit. is that a lot?. hmm. also, how it was a spoof of the simpsons ep. still, worst ep ever.

Personally I didn't think that 'The Honking' was that bad. I suppose as a season opener it was a bit weak, but compared to 'All Roswell That Ends Well' it was a freaking Emmy winner. They should have started S4 with AOI-2.

What! you though "The Honking" was better than "Roswell That Ends Well"? I like "The Honking" but it's not one of the best or anything. As for "Roswell That Ends Well" I think it's one of the very best Futurama episodes ever. I don't understand why so many people are bad mouthing it.

"The honking" was a brilliant episode, but it was nothing compared to "Roswell that ends well"

I think "The cryonic woman" was the worst episode, i just saw it for the first time today.

I havent seen most of the episodes you talk about, but the Roswell one was rather tiring with Fry constantly going round trying to stop his grandfather from being killed. Fishfull of Dollars was fairly poor too, probably worst from Season 1.

The one where they get trapped underwater has probably the funniest animated sketch Ive ever seen, where Leela keeps catching the boot and the fish stick to Farnsworth's face. heh heh heh

I must be seeing different episodes from everyone else, Roswell was a work of genius and Bird-bot was the funniest thing I've seen on tv in a loooooong time. Lobstertainment has to be the low point of Futurama, five minutes into it I just wanted it to end. If I get short of hard disk space, Lobstertainment is the first one to go.

OK, it seems that the newbies are infected with  the "Roswell hater" bug.

But "The Honking" was a decent episode.

I agree that "Mothers Day" is one of the lowlights of Season 2.

I remember Mother's Day being good, yet for some reason it is easily my least-watched episode. I think I've only seen it twice.

Honking was decent, I'm surprised anyone would put it on their worst episode list, or even their best episode list.

Recently rewatching Godfellas, I think that may be one of the worst episodes ever. At first I semi-appreciated it for its cool and creative story, but the lack of jokes makes it seriously painful to watch.

1) A tale of two santas (the worst I ever seen; it isn't matter of Santa or Xmas atmosphere, I liked "Xmas story", but I found this second Xmas story too stupid, except for Zoidberg cameo as "Jesus"  big grin that was the only real funny scene of the entire episode)

2) A Pharaoh to remember (though the Stargate parody, the plot sucks)

3) The honking (enjoyable, but mixing horror and sci-fi parody doens't -always- work)

speaking of whole seasons, I think my favourite is the first one, then comes the second. Season three and four are average (with exception of some very excellent episodes of course).

Worst episode is "The Cryonic Woman" (or was it cryohenic? I don't care), no competition. The joy-ride was good, the rest just meh. And Michelle? Urrggh! Let's never see her again okay, I'd rather have some Cubert-centered episodes.

Also I found it very wierd that the Professer fired Fry at the end of the episode and tried to kill him (how the hell did Fry survive that fall anyway?)

It's called "A Flight To Remember", and I think it's a great episode smile

Worst episode?

Leela's Homeworld.  Should never have revealed where Leela came from.

I have to aggree.  It was more interesting when we thought Leela was an alien and could have led to much more varied story lines.

i loved Leela's Homeworld, it's my favorite, right after Love and Rocket, but i agree they shouldn't have revealed her history so soon. And they should have thrown us a curve, like instead of giving her a family, how about telling her shes a rejected genetic experiment. talk about a mind trip.

I'd have to go with That's Lobstertainment and The Cyronic Woman.  The other episodes, like Bendless Love had a few moments that really saved the episode.  I had to pause the playback of "Bendless Love" for a full minute because I was laughing so hard at Zoidberg's slinky spontaneously catching on fire.

I agree, any episode with the Robot Mafia really does it for me - it had a few dull moments (mainly involving Angeline), but the side gags are hilarious. Poor Zoidy!

My three least favourite episodes were:

3) Mars University: Guenthur (whatever its name was!) was irritating ad nauseum, and the plot was mainly ridiculous. I mean it revolved around Fry challenging a monkey for the affections of everyone.

2) Bendless Love: Argh!! The whole scene where Bender is pretending to be Flexo for the affections of Angeline (sp?) just runied it. What did he hope to gain from that anyway?!!

1) Pharaoh to Remember: It had NO plot whatsoever, but I didn't find many of the gags funny either. The funeral scene had the possibility to be funny, but instead it was just plain irritating because Bender was too evil. And the way Bender kept interupting the Pharaoh was really annoying, and then Fry and Leela being enslaved and accepting it. This also was the low point of Futurama for another reason - it was the first episode my Dad decided to watch with me.

I would like to say that I haven't seen Lobstertainment yet, and I'm not a fan of Zoidberg, so I expect that to race into the top 3. Also I really do not see why everyone keeps bad mouthing The Cryonic Woman. What was so awful about it? It wasn't great, but there have been many worse episodes. Indeed most of Season 4 was worse than that.

Some episodes have had bits that I didn't particularly like, but I can watch any of them without complaint.  I really don't think there is a worst ep.  Quality like this, you don't get every day.
