The first episode that I saw was Fish full of Dollars, but I wasn't impressed. I kept watching, and ran across Luck of the Fryrish a few episodes later (watching in random order) and thought "Jeepers, this show is GOOD!" I've been watching ever since. Except for now. And now. But not now.

I was trying to get my mom hooked on Futurama, but she didn't really like it until she got to the ones that were spoofs of movies, like AFTR or Mars U.  smile

I invited all my pals over to watch the first episode cause I kept telling them how awesome it'd be.

Well it's a while ago... but i think it was "Hell is for other robots". It was running on TV2 and i was channel-surfing (nothing but soap going on at that time) and then i came across something that looked amazingly like The Simpsons (Little did i know...). So I came, I saw, I got hooked.

Also some people had watched a few of the episodes and really liked it, but nobody really got into the time it ran. Now they come to me to borrow the DVD's everytime they want to watch it.

My first episode was Space Pilot 3000. I watched most of season 1 on tv despite the lousy time it was broadcast here (saturday afternoon I think).

After that I've seen very little eps on tv, but I did buy the first two seasons on dvd. And seeing play.com has a great offer on the dvd's I'll buy the last two seasons soon too   smile

The 1st episode I watched was SP3K. I watched most of the 1st and 2nd season when it was on here in Oz, but I wasn't obssessed by it, propbably becuase I was a bit young. Then late last year I saw Futurama Season 1 DVDs, remebered how great Futurama was, and I bought it. SP3K is also the episode that got me obseesed. After that I bought season 2 + 3, then I found PEEL. And on Feb. 18 season 4 came out  big grin smile big grin!

Once upon a time I might've seen a part of one episode or another- I couldn't even tell you which one.
The first ep I remember seeing was "I Roomate." What hooked me wasn't one particular episode though: I like that rarest of genres, the science-fiction comedy. Before Futurama the last one I remember liking was "Red Dwarf," but seeing it was dicey at best for me in the US. Before that, it was "Hitch-hikers Guide," (Thanks to 'Auntie Beeb') before that you'd have to go all the way back to a short-lived 1970's sitcom with Richard Benjamin called "Quark." Though llooking back on it, "Quark" wasn't particulary good.

I used to watch the show when it was on Fox, and I always liked it, but it was impossible to plan to watch it.

I knew I liked it when I saw the first episode, but I didn't really get hooked on the show until they started showing them on Cartoon Network regularly and I could plan on a regular viewing.

But the first time I knew this show was great was much like Mr. Cohen; I found myself laughing my ass off during the "National Anthem" in Why Must I Be A Crustacean In Love, and I knew I loved this show.

I watched since the beginning but didn't really get it until a "Flight to Remember". I am a really big Simpsons fan, so when I heard Matt Groening was doing another show, I really wanted to check it out. So I sat down and watched it and I enjoyed it but as I said I really didn't get a grasp on it till "Flight to Remember", since then I have been hooked.

That's actually a fairly common genre in anime.

My friend used to talk about it a lot, and I had nothing to do for a 1/2 hour until the Simpsons was on.  (Forgive me)  So I thought I would check it out, and the 1st episode I saw was Where the Buggalo Roam, and I just
kept watching.  Here's all the magazines that Futurama has been on from CGEF.

I've been watching Futurama since the pilot, but Sky 1 in the UK always seemed to put the episodes on at really odd, random times, so I missed out on practically all of Season 2, and most of Season 3. This is coupled with the fact that my mother doesn't like Futurama, as the first episode she saw was one where Zoidberg screams and flaps his mouth bits, which freaked her out  roll eyes  Whenever Futurama does come on TV now, it's on at dinner time, and I have to watch programmes about antiques  frown

My girlfriend first got converted with Love and Rocket; not being a fool, I suggested we watch the Valentine's Day episode on Valentine's Day, which made her more susceptible.  love

I remember for some reason I was still watching Nickelodeon when I was 14 and 15(hell if I know why) so I never saw it much until adult swim. I remember seeing How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back on FOX a long time ago, the only one I saw on the channel. One of my friends got the first season set, and saw Fear Of A Bot Planet, didn't think it was anything terribly great, then I saw A Flight To Remember on Adult Swim and started thinking "Hey this is pretty cool" so I would actually watch it. I think the one that really got me into it was either The Why Of Fry or The Sting. The Sting particularly freaked me out. I knew there would be a catch, but still, the idea of a dead main character still freaked me out.

I was in the midst of a very short lived compulsive Simpsons watching stage, and since Futurama was on after, I checked it out.  I'm pretty sure I saw all of the first three episodes first run, and then I started missing it and whatnot.  I definitley remember seeing "A Flight to Remember" and thinking "wow, this show is great, it has everything, action, comedy, romance, and it's a cartoon".  Although later looking back I can't believe the show only premired in 1999, because I remember being much younger than 14 when I first saw it.  Or I'm getting senile...

When I saw they were re-running the show on Cartoon Network, I was overjoyed.  And also surprised at how many episodes I had never seen.

I made a point to run home and see the first episode (SP3K) the first time in aired. The reason was, all my friends were in to the Simpsons, and the first episode I saw of it was the one where Lisa's saxophone was stolen by tree gnomes, and I didn't know what the heck was going on! So I wanted to find out if Matt Groening was crazy. I fell in love with the show, and watched it when ever I could! (I now have a better appreciation for the Simpsons as well, but Futurama is my favourite)

nobodys probably even going to consider me a true futurama fan after this but...
 when futurama still came on fox, i watched it once in a while when i caught it, but made no real effort to remember when it came on, etc. and then kinda forgot about it.
 but i saw first season used in specs (store sells new+used cd's and dvd's)one day about a year and a half ago for $20 bucks, bought it not knowing what to expect, and got hooked. since then i think i ve seen those 13 episodes about 12 times each.

The first (terrestrial) airing of SP3K in Britain, whenever that was til present. The airing after that was pretty random and sporadic, but I watched whenever I could, and eagerly snapped up the DVD's whenever they became available.

I remember seeing Space Pilot 3000 all the way back in 1999 when the series premered, snd i watched aboot the firt 9 or 10 episodes until I lost interest and stopped watching.

But just recently, I've been turned back on to Futurama b/c of both the DVDs and reruns on C.N.

My story is actually a sad one. I had no hobbies, no sanity, no life, but when I first saw, I think a rerun on Cartoon Network(unaware of fox's situation at the time)about a year ago, I made it my a hobby and I've loved it ever since that one episode "Bendin' in the Wind" Season 3, so late! I ask myself, where have you been all my life?

Space Pilot 3000. But when I REALLY got in to it was when I bought season 1 on DVD. That special feeling of watching the episodes in the right order, when ever you liked.

I know a lot of people have said this already, but I think the starting point for me was SP3K. Back in the day, I was really REALLY into the simpsons, so a show that spawned out of the mind of m.g. was gold to me. So I watched the premiere. The only problem that I found was that the NFL was always on the Futurama time-slot, so I couldnt see it.
  Fast forward to season 2 release on DVD, for one reason or another I bought it and fell in love all over again. The episode there that had me was "the problem with popplers". So I guess it was a join effort on the parts of both television and TVD's (i dont know if anyone else calls them TVD's [television discs) but I do). Sorry for rambling, but thats how it all when down.

Quite simply, Space Pilot 3000. I had heard of Futurama a bit before it first aired on Fox, but I never watch that channel so I never really heard of it again. I frequently watch CN, mostly Adult Swim, and when I saw the advertisements for it, I decided I'd give it a try. So, the first one I saw was what got me hooked.

The same deal happened with Family Guy, except I had never heard of it before it was on AS, and I never thought I would like it until I saw the first episode.

When I saw the first episode I knew I was hooked, though I'm not sure I saw it the first time it ever aired I know it was around that time. I remember Fox promoting it heavily, and I was and am a big fan of scifi TV animation[I don't think America makes enough of it]. I know I saw Invader Zim the first time it ever aired, but I'm not sure about Futurama. Anyway, despite my having watched it for 5 or 6 years, I still haven't seen every episode e.e Obsoletely Fabulous, most notably. It was on Adult Swim recently but I missed it.

The first episode I saw that got me into it was the Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings...when it FIRST came out. That was a WHILE ago. But I can't wait to see it again this Tuesday! I am going to record it and watch it everyday...
