"The Sting", aye I am an emo-hearted romantic and this episode is just awesome.
Epic love story.. :*(



"The Sting" is indeed a very good emotional episode. I really love how Futurama puts in those really emotional episodes sometimes and yet manage to include a lot of jokes in them (Like Luck Of The Fryrish and Jurassic Bark)

The problem with the sting, for me at least, is that it's not very re-watchable. It's not as exciting for the second time since you already know it's all a hallucination and Leela's actually the one in a coma. The more funny episodes have jokes that you can hear dozens of times and still laugh each time. That's why I prefer them.

However, I don't doubt that the first time you watch The Sting it's a really amazing one.

The emotional side of some of the episodes is what really makes the show stand out. Parasites Lost turned my favorite show from The Simpsons to Futurama. And yes, I agree, they simply added that new depth without taking away the already great comical side of the emotional episodes! smile It's a recipe for success...

I think it was DXC who mentioned that they often start with a serious story, and add comedy elements later.

Well..I do not have certain preferences regarding serious or whacky episodes, a good mixture is imhO the key.

Either "Amazon Women in the Mood" or "The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings." The latter epitomizes everything that makes the show great to me, while the former is just fuckin' hilarious

Yeah, plus Safety Dance.

And Boneitis, the stockholders' meeting, Mom and all the 80s references. It'd probably crack my 20.

My favourite part is at the beginning, when Hermes shows the chart of Planet Express' earnings.

"This blue slice is the money we earn from deliveries, and this large green slice is an 8 dollar bank error in our favour."

Any episode sexually involving Leela or - even more as Leela isn't as sexy as once was - AMY
That said, I believe the best episodes tend to feature the Robot Devil.

1. Dan Castelleneta.

2. He'd done voice acting before. In fact, another Matt Groening cartoon made him quite famous for it. It's not like he's "adding another string to his bow" by doing Futurama.

3. Lists are cool. I like lists. They're not as awesome as graphs, but they're pretty neat.

Anyway, I got Vol. 3 of Futurama from my Dad today. big grin I plan on watching my favorite episode: Parasites Lost soon.

His IMDb and Wikipedia pages show nothing before The Tracey Ullman Show except a small part in a live action movie called Nothing in Common. He was cast as Homer on The Simpsons shorts because he was already a cast member of The Tracey Ullman Show and the producers didn't want to hire too many outside actors.

My point was that he'd done voice acting work for Groening before Futurama. I'm well aware that voicing Homer and various other Simpsons characters was the extent of this previous VA work.

Which is unsurprising, given that Groening hasn't produced any other cartoons.

Between The Simpsons and Futurama, he's done other shows.

Dan's a highly profilic voice-actor. Just because he started on The Simpsons doesn't mean that he hasn't voiced countless other cartoon shows.

Off the top of my head, he was a regular on Earthworm Jim, Hey Arnold! and Taz-Mania as well as being the voice of the Genie from Aladdin during the period when Disney had fallen out with Robin Williams - and he did a lot more than the stuff I've just mentioned.

I really liked Anthology of Interest I, especially the part with Leela killing everyone, XD. I also liked HHRHGB and The Farnsworth Parabox. It's so hard to choose one. Oh and another favourite is Neutopia.

Hi welcome to PEEl! smile I would just like to warn you that this:

Don't worry Fabien, I liked Neutopia too, but what SGB said, a lot of people on PEEL don't... hmpf

But relax, they're not gonna hunt you down. Maybe just question why you like the episode, then respond to you with a huge paragraph about (what they think are) it's flaws.

Recently re-watched 'Yo Leela Leela' and I used to just think of it as an average season 6 episode but now I really like it, it's up there with 'The Late Philip J. Fry' and 'The Prisoner of Benda' for the best of the season. The plot is so original and all the characters are spot on, I recommend everyone else to watch it also...

Thanks for the welcome! I didn't know Neutopia was a hated episode by many, I only liked it because of the hilarity of it when their genders were reversed.

I'm also a Hermes fan, as I do live in the Caribbean, and one of my favourite quotes of him is "You're making me highly Selassie," which can be found in that episode.

Also can someone tell me why people hate it so much?

It's hard to explain. A lot of people look for more in the show than just comedy, they look for good plots and sometimes emotional portions of the episodes. A lot of the jokes seemed off, and they were barely body-switched. I don't hate it, I find it mediocre. But it had a lot of problems. A LOT.

If you still hadn't found out, that was my lame excuse at an April Fools gag (Although I really don't hate the episode that much, it's nowhere near the best of the season)

Here's my rant against it. A few people didn't approve of me rating Yo Leela Leela higher than it, but that's only really becasue I like YLL slightly more than the average person.

Yeah, Neutopia and YLL are probably the worst episodes they ever made IMO. But I digress - this is the favorite episode thread!

With that in mind, it certainly isn't my favorite, but I think That Darn Katz! is quite underrated. I don't see why all the meh for it. But I do have a particular affinity for kitty antics and singing/dancing cats.

I have no idea why it gets so much flak either. It's a pretty solid episode in my opinion, and I liked the lame cuteness.  love

Although, I guess disliking it would make sense if you didn't like cats...

"Katz" was imhO a rather solid episode, the plot was absurd/grotesque enough wink
Just one thing was missing:
With an Asian girl foiling the plan of evil cats, you'd expect her key to victory would also bear some "culinary" aspect tongue big grin (Yep, that was not really politically correct.. tongue big grin )

That Darn Katz rubbed me the wrong way, and I have two cats.

1 - Yes cats are cute. Cuteness as an outright mass mind control device is a stupid plot point.

2 - Why do they need to screw over the Earth specifically? Surely there exist other less populous planets they could have leeched spin from with less of a fight.

3 - I did enjoy Bender asking "Why am I full of sand? And tootsie rolls?".

I was appalled  at TDK upon first seeing it but it grew on me a lot over subsequent viewings.

I only have six cats, dammit.  SIX!
