Hmmmmmmm thats a tough one, cause there really ain't one episode that I do not love. But since I have to pick one, I'd have to say um .............. The Luck of the Fryrish. I'm pretty sure I cried just one tear the first time i seen it.

 I especially like the deus ex machina resolution to the story.


Although I am glad that the writers didn't go on to end too many other episodes in this manner.

I LOVE The Luck of the Fryrish. It really took me by surprise the first time I watched it, and every time after that it still makes me laugh because its so clever.

I also love the Farnsworth Parabox. "Well, that was pointless."

Then again, its hard to choose, because I love them all.

Does that mean that the week should be eight days long?

Would the extra day be Blernsday?

It's so hard to pick just one favourite, and my mind changes from time to time, but I'd probably say Amazon Women in the Mood is my favourite episode. Plenty of sleazy Zapp humour makes it a winner for me.

Point of clarification: Is in more properly "Blernsday," or "Blurnsday?"  confused

Another brilliance about that episode in particular is the controversy surrounding it, and I am still attributing that to be the reason Matt Groening decided to develop Futurama with David X. Cohen.  So while even being hilarious, it also has importance for our existence.

Now I know this isn't mentioned anywhere, but the timing of the production fits.  If you have to imagine that Cohen and Groening showcased Futurama in early 1998 to FOX.

I remember reading about it, how pissed off James L. Brooks was with Groening, who hated the The Critic tie-in, thought it was cheap, etc.  But, this is the first time I've heard Futurama being a consequence of that incident.  Thanks for bringing it up, cyclops duck...

I think Groening may have wanted to develop a project over which he had more creative control--and I've heard, in commentaries for both The Simpsons and Futurama, that Groening really does spend more time with DXC and company. I think "A Star is Burns" is an awesome episode, but if it's what Groening needed to start developing Futurama, then I'm glad it was so controversial.

Well, I don't know if it was the kicker for Matt Groening to start developing Futurama, but I would argue that it certainly was a motivation factor.  "A Star Is Burns" proved to Groening that he had lost creative control over The Simpsons and despite his objections an episode would go ahead anyway.

and do you know that Cubert was one of the first characters of futurama.. before Leela and Fry and maybe Professor Farnsworth... and he is in the series minimally...

I know he is an early gimmick character, but I am not sure how early in the process he appeared.  I think his original incarnation was basically 'a kid who points out the scientific flaws on the show'.  Something I am certain David X. Cohen and Ken Keeler would find hilarious.

His lack of usage in the final version is pretty obvious, such a character would get either overused or underused for this purpose, and you would quickly run out of gags, which would simply turn him annoying rather than funny.

But again, a lot of early ideas never made it into the final version of the show.  And also, what does this have to do with anything?

The writers kind of dropped the whole "point out everything that's scientifically inaccurate and physically impossible" part of Cubert's character after "A Clone of My Own." I mean, he's almost tolerable in "The Route of All Evil" and "Bender Should Not Be Allowed on TV" (and, I suppose, "Bender's Game"); once they paired him up with Dwight, it was easier for me to like him, at least.

Xmas Story has always been up there for me. The professor getting naked at the end is just hysterical!

I think my number 1 episode however is Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles.

Honourable mentions to A Flight To Remember, Kif Gets Knocked Up A Notch, and Fry And The Slurm Factory.

My 'guilty pleasures' are The Deep South, The Honking, and Bendin' In The Wind.

I must go with "Why of Fry", as it's always felt like the perfect Futurama episode balancing humor, story, and romance.

I will say though, that "Mother's Day" does hold a special place in my heart for being the first episode I ever saw.
