Ugh, I hate all the negative opinions towards Ocw. mad

Free speech.

[Insert Kif sigh here.]

"Overclockwise" isn't my favorite episode of season six, and it's definitely the weakest of the Last Episodes Ever (though the standard for Futurama finales is really high). I do think the Fry/Leela story gets a lot of unnecessary criticism, but I am admittedly more amenable to the mushy-gushy, borderline heavy-handed emotional stuff than a lot of other posters. I do wish the awesome sci-fi premise had gotten more play; the whole episode was jam-packed to a fault, and it just felt really rushed.

Like the freedom of speech allowing them to express distaste for the opinions of others?

They didn't say "Ugh, I think all the negative opinions towards Ocw should be removed from this site".


And Gorky, I personally think that 'Overclockwise' is a hell of a lot better than 'Into the Wild Green Yonder', but that's probably just me.

Yeah, free speech has ruined the internet!

...No, wait, the other thing. Made it worthwhile.

Fair enough. I enjoy both of them quite a bit, and consider them among my favorite episodes of the series. My main complaint about both of them, really, concerns pacing; Wild Green Yonder's first quarter is almost entirely unnecessary from a storytelling standpoint, and "Overclockwise" has too much going on and doesn't adequately address every issue it brings up. I happen to find the writing missteps in "Overclockwise" slightly more problematic than those in ItWGY is all.

Instead we got Leela being a bitch, Fry's suicide attempt and a tacky ending...

Even when she's experiencing legitimate feelings and concerns, they still manage to make her seem like a selfish, demanding, unreasonable bitch.  

Leela is a bitch, plain and simple. It's a shame the writers had to accentuate that side of her, but she's always been a bit selfish and too big for her boots...

Wild Green Yonder's first quarter is almost entirely unnecessary from a storytelling standpoint

Regardless, it was the best part of the four movies...

I completely agree with the pacing issues for both of them. You hit the nail on the head with that, Gorky.

And I suppose, whilst Leela is a bitch, it's never really bothered me with regards to the shippy nature of things. I still feel for Fry because quite frankly, I've been there. I've chased horribly bitchy-types that have messed me around and treated me terribly with little regards for anyone's feelings other than their own... and just like Fry, it's never really had an impact on my desire to keep at it. Call it pathetic if you want, but it's a form of pathetic I can identify with.

As I've said before, from a storytelling perspective, the hapless good-natured halfwit finally melting the heart of the frosty warrior bitch is a lot more satisfying than the abovementioned halfwit winning the already open heart of a kind and empathetic lady. The former is more of a trial, more of a journey. More interesting to behold for the audience. So they made Leela a bitch. Logical from a writer's perspective.

Of course, that ought to have changed somewhat now that he's already won her. Sort of.

My favourite episode would be entirely dependent on my mood.
Right now... Leela's Homeworld.
Excellent animation and music in that. Emotive, but not overly so. Good smattering of action, continuity and hilarity. Very well-balanced episode that showcases all the strengths of the series.

Out of curiosity, is there a thread that lets you post your overall fave ep from each season?

Perfect for me, I'm fine with people having their own opinions, but in my own, it's my favorite episode. It was a great mix of humor and emotions (IMO, please don't counter me) that was paced on a good scale. I would say 10/10 big grin

I suppose my current favourite has to be TLPJF, although RTEW is still close.

Those 2 are among the top 5 for most common favorite episode.

I finally decided on my new favorite: Parasites Lost. It was absolutely hysterical, it introduced that emotional depth (and that warm feeling big grin) between Fry and Leela, and the story was just really cool in general! love

Oh, yes, I loved Parasites Lost! It was so great to see the Fry and Leela relationship progress, yet I was mad at Leela for kicking Fry out...and the story, the crew going inside Fry was just hilarious. "Nobody make a smell" big grin. Also, SGB, are you a shipper for Fry and Leela?

I'm not crazy about it, but I think it's one of the best aspects of the show. But sometimes I enjoy it very much. But I for sure don't get to mushy gushy with it...

So true, I hate how some shippers are always like "I want Fry for myself!" or make creepy ass sappy music videos with their fan art and snapshots from the show.  hmpf. I'm like "You...do know it's a show right?"

Exactly. For example, Freako draws pornographic pictures of Leela. It's a lowdown form of dignity I say! Leave the show's beauty the way it is! frown

I agree with you word for word pumpkin. wink

Overall, I reckon that The Sting is my favourite episode. It has a great premise, and a clever twist for the first time you watch it. There is some good humour and a nice shippy ending.   big grin
There are a lot of very close episodes though: Parasites Lost, The Luck of the Fryrish, The Why of Fry and The Late Phillip J. Fry. They're all pretty Fry or Fry+Leela based episodes I guess.

I can definitely agree more or less with Cinimod's list. Good stuff there. I think some of their best stuff - and often, some of their worst stuff - centers on Fry/Leela.

The Sting was in fact a great episode. A lot of people don't consider it's emotional level up there with: Parasites Lost or TDHAIP, but I do. The fact that Leela went mad because she missed Fry, the guy who she rejected numerous times up to then! That's what drives me to love this episode! Plus that heartwarming ending was awesome! love

It's an interesting episode that's certainly very well written, but I can't say it's a favourite of mine. I think it's the weakest Fry/Leela shippy episode. Perhaps it's just been too long since I've seen it.

But nothing beats the first time you watch it, when you don't know Leela's in a coma. It's magical the first time you watch it...love

It has to be either "The prisoner of Benda" or "Roswell that ends well".

I like TPOB because it's similar to "300 big boys", each character got a sub-plot (even Scruffy) and everyone got some air-time for shenanigans. Also, they took mind-switching, an idea that's been done a lot before, and still managed to make it funny and creative and give it a touch of their own.

On top of all that, Fry/Zoidberg and Leela/Farnsworth sex scene. Hell yeah.

RTEW is just hella funny, I love the idea and it's the first episode since the pilot that has something to do with time-travel. Awesome and memorable Zoidberg quotes, of course, and how Leela and the professor tried to blend in in the 20th century was hilarious =] That episode that made me ROFL.

Yeah, I mean...I would love to have Grrrl as an avatar. It's always funny to see a great big monster with, not only, a "normal" voice, but also to us nerds an outsider voice. It really tickles me.

She really goes crazy with that character. Ahh, the layers.
