Oh, so it's spam.  Thanks for clearing that up.

You know what, leelaholic?  We all know how you feel about that episode already.  You don't have to open yet another one of your pointless threads just to tell us that.  If you really feel a need to keep reminding us how you feel about "Devil's Hands", put it in your sig.  Then you could tell us how much you hate it in every post.

Worst episode EVER!

I wish that I could say that this was the worst thread ever, but I can't because I've seen your other threads, and this is pretty much average for you.

Speak softly. Drive a Sherman tank.

Okay. I'll stop, I promise. I don't know why I even did it anymore. My motivation is gone.


Now that that's over, here's my two cents on all of these...


Bendless Love - I enjoyed it, but nothing really clicks when I watch this. Still an okay attempt, though.

Amazon Women in the Mood - I just don't get the allure of this. It's a good episode, but I don't understand the big deal. It's good, but everyone seems to think it's the best ever, and I just don't see it.

A Tale of Two Santas - Awesome! The song was hilarious and everyone seemed to have a satisfying role. The jokes were funny and it was cool to see Santa again.

Devil's Hands - Sorry to anyone who likes it, but this just doesn't work for me. Sorry.

I voted for Devil's Hands, although given a full list I would have gone for Anthology of Interest Part II.

Bendless Love: After rewatching this recently, I've come to the conclusion that it's actually pretty enjoyable overall.  I think the second half doesn't make much sense story-wise, it loses some of its steam by then and the emotion at the end just feels a little too plastic, but there are a good number of bending-related laughs, hilarious Farnsworth, and good Flexo lines.  B

Amazon Women in the Mood - A very funny episode that really pushes the limits of good taste.  Zapp, Fry, and Bender's sexist jokes are among the highlights of this one, though the story as a whole feels a little empty to me.  Ah well, outside of a few slow moments, and possibly a few too many sex jokes, this is a very strong Season 3 episode.  B+

A Tale of Two Santas - Another enjoyable Season 3 sequel episode.  The first half is really top-notch stuff, with the attack on Santa and the Neptunians' song.  I think the second half isn't as good, though, with Bender posing as Santa, then wreaking havoc on the town along with Santa.  Good jokes scattered throughout though, just not as good as Xmas Story.  B+

Devil's Hands - I really liked the episode, and thought it gave good closure.  I loved the Donkey Kong joke, the stuff involving Fry with new hands, the jokes revolving around Beelzebot's "bony hot dogs", the Gift of the Magi storyline, Bender's "Bite my shiny metal...OH NOOOOO!", and the opera itself.  If they had a few more jokes and ditched Hedonism-bot, this could've been an A+.  Oh well, still a great episode and a good sequel.  A

The Why of Fry - Why this one isn't on the poll is anyone's guess.  Great episode, what it lacks in number of jokes it makes up for in wonderful pacing, emotion, and storytelling.  A

AOI 2 - Absolutely hilarious, especially Fry's segment.  A

I'm giving it to Devil's Hands, overall.
