The worst episode was the Cryonic Woman.

Fry drops everything to go 1000 years into the future with a girl who'd previously dumped him?

And all that Mad-Maxish stuff with the kids looked like a pale imitation of the Simpsons episode where the kids get stranded on a desert island.

About as funny as doing a TOTP dance with a poisonous spider in your shoe.

The y4000 stuff was dodgy I'll agree, but Bender scaring the defrostees was brilliant.  Tremble before ARGH, Gorilla king!

Welcome to PEEL, Osiris!

Yeah, it was okay for the first half, but once Fry and Michelle got frozen it went downhill fast.

Welcome to PEEL, Osiris! Fine name, by the way...
--> Freddie: You're right about "Cryonic Woman" how could Fry do something like that? But I'm mad about them sometimes, 'cause I think it isn't realistic...

All eps have thier good points. In Cryonic Women the story wasn't good but it had some funny moment. I liked it when Bender said to Fry: By the way I broke your bed  laff It was an ep for laughs probably and brings back Fry's past again not for the last time  smile

There has been one already, and I expect there to be another soon. Pharaoh sucked big time. Lobstertainment sounds awful already. It shows on Friday. Can't wait!!   big grin

Can everyone please stop bad-mouthing Cryonic Woman. Yeah sure, why would Fry go 1000 years into the future with a girl who previously dumped him (because he is lonely and desperate - its all Leela's fault  tongue), but the episode had some funny bits. It explored how a city other than NNY has evolved in 1000 years. Michelle may be a pain in the butt but she wasn't nearly as annoying as Cubert, Guenthur, Zoidberg in Buggalo episode etc. There have just been worse episodes out there. Read CGEF's episode reviews and I think you will see Cryonic Woman is not by quite a margin the worst episode.

And you stopping saying bad thing about A Pharoah To Remember. Its got great animation and setting. Not to mention its about Bender and how could you go wrong, any ep about him always interests me. I haven't seen it but know a bit about it and the only reason some don't like it because there is insensivity there.  roll eyes Benders cool  cool

"Pharoah" sucked. You know why? Not because Bender's antics from the funeral onward were obnoxious... but because they were obnoxious without being the slightest bit FUNNY.

Well, since you asked, I just found the average of Bender-centric eps ratings at CGEF, and I got 78.6%, compared to the average rating of all Futurama eps to be 86.7%, a difference of 8.1%.  I don't have the figures because IE hates me.  So, obviously, most people found Bender-centric eps in general to be below average for Futurama.  The exceptions were Fear of a Bot Planet and Godfellas.

Incidentally, Pharaoh was the second lowest rated episode at CGEF, at 58%.  THat's Lobstertainment was the worst, at 52%.

Obnoxious wihthout being funny? This is Futurama Y'now, and everyone who responds this way to this ep are reflecting Fox's attitude to the whole of Futurama.

I think Bender is funny in pharoah, its all about watching it with a mind that matches the worlds blankiest blank (Which I consider myself to be an expert in). If your mind is blank, nearly everything is funny, and you'll be happy, and happy is good, yes?  tongue

Sure Pharoah is probably one of my least favorite eps, but that doesn't mean I hated it. I still enjoyed watching it even though there were some parts I didn't like.

How is thinking that Bender was being a complete bitch, which I don't consider to be funny at all, the same as hating a show because you don't have control of it?  That makes ZERO sense to me.  Just because I like a show doesn't mean I have to blindly love every moment of it.  I can admit that some episodes blew the big one.

Clap clap, a FEW people who put there ratings in at CGEF give it a total of 58%, like I care what others think    no no And that bit about Bender eps having a lower percentage than the rest of the eps: how can they have a higher rating with there being more of the other eps than Bender eps   roll eyes

It's called averages, pal, you should check it out, in your local basic mathamatics book.

Haley, you gotta stop arguing. Some people are just not amused by watching Bender whine and bitch all the time. Just because you love it doesn't mean everyone else should. And you've definitel hit a low point, by the way, in telling Nix that because there are a lot of Bender-centered episodes, the series' total average rating MUST be lower than the average Bender show rating. As directed above, I suggest you seek the aid of someone able to perform middle school mathematics.

Averages then. You didn't seem to respond to the fact that is unfair to compare the Bender eps to rest of them in which got the higher voting average.

I am so confused.  It's unfair to disprove your statement "How can you go wrong with Bender?" by using supporting evidence that shows that, on the average, people dislike Bender-centric episodes more than the rest?

Haley, it doesn't matter how many there are right now and how many are due out. I'll explain it without any confusing math or numbers. Nix looked at the overall rating of the series, every episode. And he looked at the scores of the Bender episodes. The results - Usually, non bender episodes get better ratings.

I do not understand how you could possibly not understand why averages aren't really affected by sample size. Seriously, how old are you?

There are more non Bender epsiodes than bender eps.
Plus it doesn't mean anything because the averages of the eps are based only on a few peoples opinions which are probably biased.

Wow, it takes two mods and a Mad Capper just to argue with one haleys_comet.   tongue

Seriously though, why are you guys arguing?  We don't all have to like the same episodes, do we?  You guys don't have to like "Pharoah," and haley doesn't have to dislike it.  Just agree to disagree.

Anyway, "Pharoah" was a great episode.  I liked everything about it.

Wow, this is fun!  tongue

static: If you go into life with a blank mind thren anything can be funny or enjoyable. That doesn't make it good though!!

haleys: Seeing as you don't seem to understand averages properly, try this for size... From Season 1, Fear of a Bot Planet got 86%, tied lowest rating with A Fishfull of Dollars.
From season 2, the only two episodes to get less than 80% were I Second that Emotion (why!!) and Lesser of Two Evils which both heavily involved Bender.
Only 4 episodes have ever got less than 70%, 2 had Bender as a central character (Pahraoh and Bendless Love) and Lobstertainment involved him quite heavily.

I'm sorry if you don't agree, but in my opinion and many others, Bender does not make good plot lines. And finally before you try and claim that a few people have caused the low rating of Pharaoh, it got over 100 votes, and if you look through many give it a 2 or 3. While this is a problem with some of the earlier episodes where only a few votes have been cast, with the more recent episodes there are so many votes that that problem doesn't really arise.

Of course there are exceptions, as Nix stated. Godfellas and HIOR both got excellent ratings. You are wlloed to like episodes that other people don't like, it is what makes people different, but please can you just accept that the majority of people thought Pharaoh sucked.

-------------------------------------------------

Now here's my opinion on Lobstertainment. This has to be the most pointless episode ever made. It wasn't nearly as bad as I was expecting but it just reminded me of the Simpsons, and so many bits were just pointless. What was with the Tar pit, and Silvester Stallone?? Personally I would rather watch this than Pharaoh because Bender's bitching was actually annoying, whereas this was just stupid and pointless.

haley's_comet, the number of Bender episodes to non-Bender episode are irrelevant when counting averages.

Last time I looked, the average rating for each episode was an average of the individual ratings awarded to that episode by the people that rated that episode.  One person's rating for "Pharoah" doesn't alter the average rating for "Godfellas", but it DOES alter the average rating for "Pharoah".  If the person gives it a good rating, the average rises.  If a person gives it a BAD rating, the average falls.

Why do non-Bender eps get better ratings than Bender eps?  Anything to do with the number of F&L shippers and Amy fans, perhaps?

Perhaps the people that don't like Bender episodes give them really low scores and the people that dislike other episodes for one reason of another just mark them down slightly   hmpf

I personally enjoyed the obnoxious Bender in Pharaoh.  I don't want to see him like that all the time, but it made me laugh.  I haven't run into an episode that I dislike yet.  Some stand above the rest, but I'm entertained by all.

That would actualy make sense.

What pisses me off is when someone goes into one of the review threads and gives an old episode a 1 and says something like "what is this shit". Good example: When Aliens Attack. Of 11 reviews, 10 gave either or 4 or 5, and one person gave a 1 and didn't even explain why. This gives this great episode an overall score of 87%.  frown

True, but it makes you happy, and happy is good, yes?  big grin

incidetally though, i do agree with some people on the point that there have been a bit too many Bender centered episodes lately. Perhaps it is so because its easier to make episodes about Bender since he's a robot and works around the censoring and all that?
