What is your favourite of these (regarded as) worst episodes?

(Also, They are all 'bad' just not as good in comparison)

I like all those episodes! Maybe Cryonic Woman could have been better though..

Out of those, I'd say the best worst ep is 'A Pharaoh To Remember', closely followed by 'A Leela of Her Own'  smile

What's "A Leela Of Her Own" doing up there? It's one of the best around.

"Mother's Day" is pretty good too.

Of those ALOHO is the best, by a Cardassian mile.

A Leela of Her Own, if not for having Leela in a very nice uniform but also for the quite funyy Hank Aaron and Bob Uecker.

I voted for "Lobstertainment" too soon. Why the HELL is "Mother's Day" up there? That episode rocks!

'A Pharoah to Remember' is probably the best up there, probably followed by 'Cryonic Woman'.

I vote for "A Pharaoh to Remember" because I like the episode.  I enjoy seeing heartless Bender.  I like "Cryonic Woman" and "Mother's Day" too.

Bend Her
Never knew this one to be bad. I thought it was quite good.
The Cryonic Woman   
Meh, yeah this one was not too great, but it was a good tie in to the first episode and Fry's backstory.
That's Lobstertainment   
I can see why this one was bad. I mean ripping on silent movies isn't the freshest idea. But since I've seen enough silent films, like Zoidberg and think Hank Azaria is a great voice actor I wouldn't rate this too be the worst.
Mother's Day
Never knew it was disliked, I've watched it quite a bit on the DVD.   
A Pharaoh To Remember   
I can see why people don't like this, but I love the heartless Bender. I guess people don't like anger because it scares them. But anger in a comedy is funny, so it makes me happy. Hooray. I also loved Egypt as a kid so I enjoyed the jokes.
A Leela of Her Own
Ugh...Blernsball was NOTHING like it was when it was first introduced in the show. Nothing was random about it. Infact, it turned into baseball on a string. I think the writer never watched Futurama. (waits for someone to quote every episode that the writer wrote to contradict me, also waits for that person to use the episode "3afoba1" jargon rather than episode titles)

You know, I really don't think Bend Her was all that bad. Nothing to write home about story-wise, but it had some funny jokes, and moved along fairly quickly.

I voted for "The Cryonic Woman," although A Pharaoh to Remember comes awfully close.  I really didn't like "That's Lobstertainment" or "A Leela of Her Own" all that much.  I agree with Binder about blernsball not being as random and amusing in ALOHO as it was back in "Fear of a Bot Planet," and I think part of why I didn't like Lobstertainment was similar: aside from a few robots and heads in jars showing up, there wasn't anything particularly wacky or futuristic about 31st-century Hollywood.  Yes, I realize "The Magnificent Three" was supposed to be pathetic, but I still think they could have gotten a lot more mileage out of the future of the film industry than they did.

 Agreed.

 I would personally go for Mother's Day on that list. Ignoring all the old people love (because unlike many I make an effort not to judge a whole episode by one scene  tongue), there's actually a pretty good story about society's reliance on technology in there.

"A Leela Of Her Own"

There just weren't enough Leela episodes! This one was probably my favorite of all of hers.

Tough one.  "The Cryonic Woman" is the only one of those I don't like.  Although if it was up to me, "Obsoletely Fabulous" and "Bender Should Not Be Allowed on TV" would be on the list.

I've always really liked APTR for some reason. Maybe because of Zoidberg's Oh Danny boy scene...

when it comes to futurama, there is no such thing as a worst episode, however there are episodes, I would not want to watch as much as others.  One is Kif gets a notch up.  The whole Kif having babies thing was lousy.

I'm voting for "Bend Her" because i found it to be quite watchable and reasonably funny. Ok, not a great episode of Futurama but i didn't mind the plot or the jokes.

I'm not voting for "Mothers Day" because that should just plain not be up there.

As I've made it pretty clear before - A Leela Of Her Own is my least favourite episode, so I'm sure as hell not voting for that. Being the huge Zoidberg fan I am, Lobstertainment easily gets my vote.

Also, why the hell is Mother's Day up there? Hardly anyone considers that to be a crap episode. Because it's a good episode.

Bad episode? No such thing, how can you say that 'Mother's Day' is bad, the sequence with the Professor is so horrifying it's actually good! I'd say of the episodes I'm less keen on they're 'That's Lobstertainment' and 'Cryonic Woman'. Not so much becuase they're bad, but because I thought the storyline wasn't that strong.

Gotta agree, Mother's Day is an awesome episode. I just watched it on DVD last night and it is as good as the first time I saw it. An interesting story coupled with some excellent animation with the robots rioting make this one of the better Season 2 episodes in my opinion.

The only negatives would be Mom's somewhat annoying sons and the disturbing sex scenes with Mom and the Prof. I probably shouldn't have watched this episode right before going to bed. I don't have to tell you I had some strange dreams  smile

Mothers Day is a great episode, shouldnt have been there. Cryonic woman had a very interesting story line with Fry's old girlfriend, so its probably the best of "the worst".
And the starting parts of working in the feezing building were actually really funny, scaring people and such.

To be honest, I don't think there are any "bad" Futurama episodes.  All 72 of them have great storylines that are completely different from the rest.

Sure, there are ones that I prefer over others, but I can't say any of them are bad.

Pharoh to Rememeber is in my top 10 episodes, so I think it's farely obvious which one i think is the best there.  That funeral scene is just an absolute classic.

And yeh mothers day is great.  The worst out of that lot is probably A leela of her own tied with Croygenic Woman. Where's the HONKING? I HATE THAT EPISODE!!
