What's your favorite script/screenplay of futurama?
I really like the one of The Farnsworth Parabox because of its complexivity, even though the one of Roswell that Ends Well is also one of my favorites.

There's a page full of Futurama scripts but I forgot how it was called.

The Sting. Everyone knows I love Devil's Hands, but that's mostly because of the music. The Sting was actually amazingly well written.

I was not surprised by the end of The Sting.  In fact I was half-expecting it.

I was, however, completely surprised by the end of Luck of the Fryrish.  THAT was great writing.

I can't believe everyone's voting for 'The Sting'.
The ending was very predictable, although I was thinking to myself 'surely they wouldn't do something as lame as making the whole thing a dream' but they did. It's been done many times before and can't believe that it is perhaps the most popular episode.

I'm thinking either A Roswell that ends well, Jurassic Bark or Luck of the Fryrish.
Probably Jurassic Bark.

i expected the ending to the sting too, but that's not the fault of the episode, it's the fault of everyone knowing that Fry wasn't gonna die since he still had half a season to appear in.
However i am not disputing that LOTF was indeed several shades of awesome.

Roswell!  My 2nd favourite episode!  {Where No Fan... is my favourite, but it needs the actors to get the humour across, it's not as funny in plain script form.)

Would you rather have them do the "royal jelly magically restore Fry using DNA from the couch" ending? As Venus mentioned, everybody knew Fry wouldn't remain dead at the end of the episode, so making it all a dream was actually their best option.

Since "Godfellas" isn't on there, I'll go with "Roswell That Ends Well".

 The other option, of course, would be to not kill Fry at all...  tongue

Where's the 'all' option?   tongue

I'm going with 'The Sting'. I just can't believe the same guy wrote that as 'That's Lobstertainment!'   eek But I'm not complaining   smile

I love the Sting, too!  I don't care if the ending was stereotypical.  The contents of the episode were quite original.  I like it how the episode screws with your mind.  The first time I saw this episode, I got duped by the part when Fry comes alive from the royal jelly.  Although every single other episode listed is really good, and makes it hard to choose (except for Devil's Hands, which I am not a big fan of).

I'm gonna go with an old favourite in "Love's Labour's Lost in Space" as it was the episode that got me hooked and it still one of the best and funniest scripts of them all.

Looking at the votes here - the 2 leading episodes are The Sting and Roswell That Ends Well. Now, as much as I love The Sting's morbid humour and trippiness, the ending was far from original. Roswell That Ends Well was also brilliantly crafted episode with terrific jokes and many entertaining moments... but still, the "twist" ending was also far from original.

My choice, however - would be Luck Of The Fryrish. There are many good episodes out there, but LOTF, on the other hand - was well written the whole way through, with a twist to the ending that I don't think ANYONE saw coming. Sentimental humour at it's finest. LOTF gets my vote for sure.

A good point, and I'll agree that it's one of the more original episodes in the series, but there was so much stilted, unconvincing dialogue in the second and third act that I personally couldn't get into that illusion.  hmpf

LOTF has the best ending, some of the early parts weren't as good as other stuff written for Futurama.  I'll vote later.

I must say that I do quite like "The Devils' Hands" but that is mainly for sentimental reasons more than anything. All the episodes here have great scripts as I see it but I would have to agree with saying that "The Sting" was the most well written. The first time that I watched that episode, I felt that it did an excellent job of keeping me intriguied and thinking a lot about it, while at the same time my perception of what was going on was shifted every few minutes by the script.

Watched 'The Farnswoth Parabox' yesterday, and it gets my vote for the best written one, as it is very clever, and is also one of the funniest episodes to me.  laff   wink

Gotto say The Sting, when i first saw it i didn't know they were gonna do more episodes or anything, so i thought it might as well could be the last episode.
I wasn't shure about anything, would they really kill of the main charecter, eaven if this is the last episode?
I recon i saw it they way it was ment to be seen.
