Well, I'm undecided at the moment since I like pretty much all those episodes, but can I ask why you decided to single out Ken Keeler as a writer to make a poll about?

Didn't Ken Keeler also write a segment of 'AOI 1'? Anyway, I'm going with, 'Devils Hands'  smile

Out of those I would say "Godfellas" although I beleive that the two best written Futurama episodes are "The Sting" and "Luck of the Fryrish".

I think I'll vote for "Godfellas". Easily one the best episodes ever, although Keeler's made a damn fine collection of episodes.

He, along with Patric Verrone, Eric Kaplan, and David Cohen is my favorite writer (in the future, I guess I could make a pole about those fine writers as well).
Oh, and Otis, Keeler wrote segment two (the Leela one) in AOI1.

My vote goes to The Honking. PYHOMS, TKOS and Godfellas are all favourites of mine as well, but to me, The Honking is a real underrated gem. I love the blend of traditional horror with a futuristic, sci-fi twist showcased in this ep.

Ah, one of Futurama's best writers.  Anyways I like all of these, but "Godfellas" is one of the top episodes ever and is a fairly easy winner for me.

It's probably been asked before, but was Godfellas based on the game Black & White? There's loads of little similarities but they didn't mention it at all in the commentary. That alone makes it a very decent episode but I'll have to go with Time Keeps on Slipping

Godfellas is great, it has some very insightful lines, and some very funny ones too.

You know what? I should probably post my favorite Keeler ep. It's The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings.

My vote is for The Series Has Landed, the first truly great Futurama ep.  But I could have just as easily voted for When Aliens Attack.

Keeler also wrote Herme's song in HHRHGB, didn't he?  Or am I off my medication again?

Yeah, in fact he had a hand in nearly all the big, original musical numbers in the series.

BTW: Futuramamama, what was wrong with PYHOMS?

I wuv them all!  love

All very fine episodes, even The Honking - I know people deride this one, but I really enjoy it - lots of visual gags and clever jokes.

Though I've decided to go for Godfella's, there's just something about that one. In my mind (and memory) it's one of, it not, the best Bender episode(s)

Most likely not, "Black & White" wasn't even released when Ken wrote "Godfellas".

Ken Keeler is one of the best writers "Futurama" had, and all of his episodes are great, with "Godfellas" as a clear #1. One of Futurama's best, and in my top-10.

I can't believe I neglected it earlier, but Time Keeps on Slippin' is a tie with Devil's Hands. If I had to choose, though, it would be TKOS, simply because it was a deeper episode.
