Where's the most of the above bar?
All of them are good but celebrity appearances is I think less important than the others.

I think it's lots of 1) a good portion of 2) and then some of 3) every few episodes, but please no more celeb centereed episode anymore ...

I voted 2 but 1 is also essential, 3 is cool, and 4 is a bad idea, unless the celebrity has a stupid role like when George Clooney played "Sparky the gay dog" in South Park   tongue

cool, another sp fan. i think 1 is the most important, 2 is pretty much in every ep i saw, 3 can be nice if hey know how to make it funny (good example - put your head over my shoulder) and 4, although not necessary, can be very sweet. i personally think that a celeb is very cool, and remeber that celebs dont have to be people - they can be even cartoons like that cheestos cheeta (ok, bad exmp) or the simpsons 3001 or somethin'.

1 & 2.  I just voted for 2.  A good episode has a good story and is really hilarious.

It was a tie between 1 and 2, but eventually I voted 2.

3 and 4 would be welcome now and then. Especially if they were anything like "A Flight To Remember" and " A head in the Polls" (The Nixon head really stole that ep.)

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

hmm.. I voted one, because if you've got a few funny jokes/ quotes etc, they make the story work, and if the story falls flat at least you can say.. well, that episode wasn't too good, but it did have that scene with fry...

A bit of Bender is fine, but not too much, I think he is great fun but I'd hate to see him overused.
