Parasites Lost. My Brother brought over season 3 and I watched that one in the middle of my busy daily activities. Thats what got me hooked, and encouraged me to show all my friends too.

great question Y_L_B! well i'm one of the younger people here so i wasnt actually a huge fan till it was cancelled. But i'd say the episode the got me into the show was a ree-run of How Hermes at my friend Maggie's house. But what probably started my insane devotion to the show was The Problem With Poplers (also at Maggies). Odly enough, Poplers is now far from my favorite episode.
edit: I got my friend Jeremy on the show a few months ago with raging bender and loves labours. He's obsessed now. just one thing...........he doesn't know its canceled. I dont really have the heart to tell him though  frown

The first episode of Futurama I saw(and remember) was the Super Hero episode, where Leela, Fry and bender form a team of heroes to "fight crime" at a personal cst to leela.
I laughed, i cried, I laughed some more, good times. Hooked me for life(though before that I still watched the show on and off).

I think it was 300 big boys.  It was amazing when fry had his 100th cup of coffee.  One of the coolest moments in cartoon history? Definitely.

One of the younger people? You know that I'm thirteen, right? And that I started this thread when I was eleven?  wink Of course, I always was a precocious little bastard...

The very first, it was heavily advertised "from the creator of the simpsons" and averyone in school was awaiting it. If you missed an episode you didn't know what the others were talking about  wink

But it took several years until I watched my first episode via internet in english - I don't know which episode it was, but it was much better than the synchro. Since then I'm addicted, or something...

When i was 10 years to 11 years old i always thought futurama was stupid and every time i saw it turn on i just turned off the TV or changed the channel. But in 2003 i saw the first episode made, and just watched it because i was to lazy to get up and get the cliker to turn off the TV but after i watched it and was hooked.

I can't quite remember, I know I watched the first episode when the show was relatively new, but the show wasn't a top favourite then.
Futurama really only became a favourite about 3 years ago and, if I recall, the episode that sealed it for me was "Where the Buggalo Roam".
I think a combination of the Wongs, and a small grammar joke (of sorts) were just enough for me. Heh.

The first episode, Space Pilot 3000, was the show that got me into Futurama. I knew I would like it even before I saw it since I was a huge Simpsons fan, but I never knew i would end up liking it even more than I do the Simpsons. I must have been 8 or 9 at the time, but I still remember watching it, and it having such a great impact on me, that it was what first made me want to become a writer of some kind(even though I've decided I don't want to be a comedic writer). Futurama has definately had a huge impact on the me of today, or should I say, the me of the . . . FUTURE.

May 2005 - channel surfing with my head turned, I heard Katie Sagal's voice.  I stopped my pressing the remote button and watched.  It was a cartoon with the characters from Star Trek - Where No Fan Has Gone Before.  The first thing I said was, "What the Hell is Peg Bundy doing on a cartoon?" followed by "What the hell is this?"

Sooo...  I pressed the 'Info' button on my remote and got the name "Futurama" on Adult Swim.  The next night I watched "The Sting".  Not having any background, I thought that Fry and Leela were husband and wife by the way she was grieving over his death and of course, his protectiveness over her.  If the last scene doesn't get a tear from anybody, then they have a heart of stone.

I was hooked.  That night I found FM/TLZ, PEEL and TTP's via Yahoo.  After two hours, I went to Wal-Mart and bought all 4 seasons @ once.  I lurked for a couple of months on the sites as I watched the show from episode one to get a feeling of the series.  Now, 15 months after buying the entire series, I still find things that make me laugh.

Of course the wife thought it was stupid until she started watching it - anything that gets past her perversed Irish sense of humor gets a slim chance of being liked.  She fell in love with the Fry/Leela ship and identifies strongly with Leela.  My wife survived a terrorist attack at an early age, was shipped to Wales to live with a crazy aunt who hated Kelly and where Kelly was treated like crap because she's Irish, moved to America where she didn't know anybody, had a  string of bad relationships until she met me. 

Let me re-emphasize that point: She strongly emphasizes with Leela!  X-Mas Story was the turning point for Kelly - her first Christmas in America she didn't get a single Christmas card; she spent it alone in the dorms of her college because she had no home to go to for the holidays.  She emphasizes with the loneliness that Leela suffers.

So, in my longwinded way, "The Sting" got my attention whereas "X-Mas Story" won my wife over.

Bendless Love made me like Futurama.
I liked Dr. Zoidberg's Slinky!
Than I started to like Bendin In The Wind because I was a fan of Beck.

I would have watched the whole series based on the strength of the first season. What hooked me and got me into the fandom was watching season four all in a row. Seeing "Leela's Homeworld," "Love and Rocket," "The Sting," and "The Devil's Hands are Idol Playthings," back to back for the first time, was a powerful experience.
