I like Obseloutly Fabulous (sp?). I didnt at first but then after a long time i watched it again and when bender says "Take that Beethoven, you deaf bastard" always got me laughing. And the two killer robots that go for a paddle boat ride.

And Fry "I get it"...."Oh, NOW i get it"

Probably A Leela of Her Own.

And I think I'm the only person in history who actually likes That's Lobstertainment.

The Star Trek one isn't funny...?  Oy, do I feel old....

See, if you've watched Classic Trek, or been to even one Star Trek convention, it's freakin' hilarious.  But I guess since Diet Trek, Lime Trek , Caffeine-free Diet Trek and Vanilla Trek, no one can get past the cheesy 60's conventions to appreciate the good drama at the original Star Trek's core...  *sigh*


(btw...

Diet Trek = Next Generation, because it lacks the "kick" of its predecessor;

Lime Trek = DS9, 'cause it's the best  and tastiest variation;

Caffeine-free Diet Trek = Voyager, because what really was the point?

Vanilla Trek = Enterprise, because it was a sincere attempt to do a good retro version, but ended up not to everyone's taste.)

I vote for "A Leela of her own" as well. Despite I love Leela episodes, this one was a disgrace. The second-worst is probably "Bender should not be allowed on TV", the third-worst "Spanish Fry". But fortunately, Futurama has produced only a handful of really bad episodes this far, most of the others are top notch and interesting in oh so many ways (Tales of Interest!).

They 'WNFHGB' ep was kinda weak, but they did the best they could trying to cram all the characters into a 22 minute ep.  I had to laugh at all the 'swipes' they took at Trek fans (living in the parents basement, having bad skin, having no life, etc).

Shiny, you wanna talk about old?  I went to the first Trek convention held in Atlanta, GA back in 1978. I met Bjo Trimble (the lady who single-handedly got ST:TOS renewed for a third season) and the ENTIRE Trek cast.  Shatner was his normal, scene stealing self, Nimoy was aloof, Takai, Doohan, Koenig, Nichols and Kelly were signing autographs for hours.  Even Commodore Decker was there.  A good time had by all.

I never could get into Captain Picard and Cmd. Riker always seemed to have a steel rod up his ass...

I agree.  I feel that the writing was excellent and Avery Brooks portayal of Captain Ben Sisko was the epitome of any Trek captain.  He was in Denver last year doing a speech about the Twelve Disciples (I didn't attend); he has retired from acting and teaches Religion at some university.

 
Quote
Caffeine-free Diet Trek = Voyager, because what really was the point

They should have renamed it to 'The Jeri Ryan Show' or 'The Seven-of-Nine Show'.  Voyager tried to make a female Kirk out of Janeway.  Unfortunately, they gave her wayyy too much anst and too little humility.  They also made her seem almost obsessive/compulsive in some eps.

Considering the low ratings, it wasn't to anyone's taste.  On paper it looked good, but Scott Bakula (great in 'Quantum Leap') just didn't do it as a Starship captain.  The rest of the cast were one-diminsional (except T'Pau - or whatever); she had large breasts, but damned!  Eat a sandwich and gain some weight!  I managed to watch one season and finally had to admit that the francise was tired and needed to be put out of its misery.

So speaketh a fan from the very beginning...

Really?  I thought it was a pretty strong episode myself.  Leastwise, my roommate and I laughed our asses off.  When Bender appeared in the "Jeffries tube," I almost literally rolled on the floor laughing.

And yet, so clearly the writers WERE Trek fans and geeks, that I knew it was affectionately meant.  Hearing the DVD commentary only confirmed this.  Like Galaxy Quest, it was clearly a labor of love.

Yeah, I went to DixieTrek once.  In the late eighties, early nineties, somewhere in there, with three friends.  We drove all night, struck a deer in our rental car (thank goodness we got insurance) and got to Atlanta at four A.M., and of course we couldn't get our rooms until noon, but there were plenty of people up in the lobby, talking and filking and such.  We dozed a bit and talked to other people...I recall talking to this one guy about ghosts, and he told the story of his haunted dorm in college.  It was the biggest convention I'd ever been to (and remains so) - 10,000 people.  It was pretty amazing.

So, er...what were we talking about again?  roll eyes

Hey everyone sorry if I'm not supposed to revive old threads but this is such an awesome one lol.  Anyway, here are my opinions on some of the weaker episodes (in no particular order):
------------------------------------------------------
1) That's Lobstertainment - Nothing too memorable here, it's not that bad of an episode but it's not that good either.  I like Bender's dialogue though (ex. "hey call me bender" after calculon calls him boiler).

2) Why Must I Be a Crustacean in Love? - Besides Fry's dialogue, I didn't really like this episode too much.  It was too Zoidberg-focused for my liking lol  smile

3) Where the Buggalo Roam - I'm sorry but I just don't find the Amy/Kif relationship that interesting to merit an episode based on it.  Zapp and Zoidberg save this from being a total disaster.

4) Kif gets Knocked up a Notch - Basically the same as above lol - I haven't seen it in awhile though so there may be more to it.

5) Obsoletely Fabulous - Don't get me wrong- it had some good moments (ex. snail watching, wooden bender's attack, and "uh, i never got the change" LOL), but overall it was too Bender-focused.  I usually prefer episodes that cover more than one character.

6) Bend Her - Oh God as if seeing my favorite main character go from super macho to super girly isn't bad enough, I have to see Calculon act all mushy as well.  This just might be my least favorite episode.

7) Cryogenic Woman - lol I don't think it's as bad as everyone is making it out to be, and even though I actually like some of Shore's movies, Michelle and those crazy kids brought the episode down in my opinion.

8) HHRHGB - Out of all the PE members, Hermes is my least favorite.  Thankfully, the Fry subplot and the funny poker game kept the episode from being too annoying.

9) Jurassic Bark - It's weird because I usually like the deeper more emotional episodes, but this one didn't really get me.  Also, Bender as a magician bothered me for some reason lol.  However, it was cool getting to see more of Fry's family.

10) Bendin in the Wind - This wasn't that bad of an episode either, and I think Beck is awesome, just nothing too memorable here.  Haha "pickatures of george washington" was a good one though.
------------------------------------------------------
As for Leela of Her Own and The Honking, I wasn't too keen of those either, but at least they don't heavily depend on one-liners to make some of their scenes enjoyable (lol I still think Fry getting mad at Bender for not trying to kill him is hilarious). 

Regardless, Futurama is the best cartoon ever!

That's Lobstertainment - It really doesn't feel like Futurama to me. Also, Bender and Zoidberg together constantly for 22 minutes is not a good thing. (but I love 'em both!)

Probably That's Lobstertainment or Route of all Evil. I didn't find those in the least entertaining. A Leela of her Own isn't great, but watchable, same with Where no Fan has Gone Before (I'm not a Star Trek fan).

I liked parts of "A Leela of her own".  You gotta love those Signoids, with their "immigrant babbling".  Also, when they're playing blernsball, and the one Signoid at the plate says "Please, Lady, I want to live...".  That's just classic Groening dialog.

I also liked "That's Lobstertainment", but not as much as most of the other episodes.  Even with a lame episode, Futurama is still miles ahead of the overwhelming majority of other TV shows past & present...

The majority? I'm not sure about that. I still find a lot to laugh at.

For me its a tie between That's Lobstertainment and A Leela of Her Own. Both episodes are not even funny at ALL to me, the Star Trek one is ok but nothing great about it either. Other than that I think every other episode at least has some funny parts.

Oh why not, here are my runner-ups.

The Cryonic Woman - I loved the first act; the moment Michelle was introduced it crumbled apart like a cookie when you drop it in your milk. Or a donut in your coffee. Whichever you prefer. She was a bitch - not a funny bitch, just an annoying, pointless bitch
A Pharaoh To Remember - Again, the first act was great, but once they got to the planet everybody suddenly became OOC, except for Bender, who's obnoxious attitude was just unbearable for once in the series. Why they did that I'll never know. I cheered at "the pharaoh suddenly died".
Crimes Of The Hot - I think Adult Swim really likes this episode because I've seen it 5 times on cable alone. It just can't be seen that much and still be enjoyable.

For me, the Star Trek episode was one of my favourites, a definite highlight. Agree with others about Cryonic Women, though I still thought Zoidberg was funny even after Michelle was introduced. That's Lobstertainment was average, Bendin' in the wind had it's moments.

I don't like a Pharaoh to remember, instantly forgetable. I also don't really like "Teenage mutant Leela's hurdles" that much.

Good Question....maybe just felt like more Opera than funny musical? (Any Adult Swim folks Opera fans?)

Also...I love Bender, but many of the other crazy robot characters that try to co-star, just haven't worked. Devil robot reminds me of that "stabby" robot that robbed the bank with Bender. They go for high-energy, but just come arcross as annoying?

by the way...Thanks       cool

It was an opera, of course it's going to feel like one. I guess as a fan of the Robot Devil, the Fry/Leela pairing, the irony jokes sprinkled over a base of a deal with the devil turning against the devil, and being a romantically frustrated musician myself, I'm a little biased towards it, though.

But still, worse than A Leela of Her Own?

I've given this some thought, and I think the worst episode I've seen is Bending in the wind.  Something about futurama doing the "60's hippy thing" just rubs me the wrong way...

As much as I love Bender, I despised Bendin' In the Wind. That's the only episode out of the entire series that I think is the worst, the only redeeming quality was Bender singing.

We don't all dislike that episode; as a matter of fact, I really enjoyed it.  It's hard not to like an episode where Chekov plays against type & refuses to say "Nuclear Wessels" in it...

Gotta disagree with you on this one.  One thing about Matt Groening is he knows the secret to a great series; it can't always be just funny.  Gotta tug on the old heartstrings sometime as well, like he did at the end of "luck of the fryish".  He did the same thing in The Simpsons with the episode where Homer meets his mom who had deserted him as a child, then has to watch her leave again.  The episode ends with Homer sitting on his car, looking up at the night sky & it's shooting stars.  Great stuff, just like Jurassic Bark.

Yeah, that's why I like Futurama, it's more than just one cheap joke after another. If that's what you want, get out of my fandom and watch more Family Guy.
