I'm rewatching 6B in anticipation for the new season. I forgot how much I liked last season. Mobius Dick, Benderama, All the Presidents Heads. Even the only episode I hated at first, Yo Leela Leela isn't half bad. I seriously can't wait for new episodes.

For some reason, I much prefer watching 6B in the correct order. I don't know who's moronic idea it was to start 6B with Neutopia.  no no

Hopefully, 7A will be in order. Randomly mixed episodes just don't feel right...

The first 2 episodes will be in order, and obviously everything else should be too. Well, now lets pray for a good great season.

Both are awesome eps, but I think the Sting slightly edges it for me. The Sting is in my top 5, as where TLPJF isn't, but it is in my top 10...

I concur.

I don't like the idea of Leela living her life without Fry as she had to in the first (and ultimately second) universe. Not that I hate the episode, but it's not one of my favourites cause I'm not fond of the ending.

The Sting = My favourite episode by far because it confirms the Leela loves Fry back ~ <3 Wheras most other 'shippy' episodes prior to that had Leelas affections for Fry purely for her own gain. (ie: A Flight to Remember, Parasites lost, etc).

Someone can still love something and think it's overrated.  Half Life 2 is one of my favourite games, but I also think it's overrated.

However I still disagree in this instance. TLPJF is among the series' best.

Why, because i think it's a little over rated? I like the episode but not as much as some other people.

ImhO, TLPJF works best when seen first, but loses a bit upon repeated viewing (maybe due to the fact the no character really acts...at least not much).
While others (e.g Devils Hands) get better when seen multiple times.

So, upon first viewing, TLPJF might be considered the greatest episode ever.
Upon second viewing, it may be considered "Okay..but it's still top five",
and third time "Okay..maybe top ten", and there it will stay.

E.g. in direct comparison to TDHAIP, both episodes feature muscial numbers:
- The "In the year..." montage works really brillant. It's a catching famous song, underlined by funny scenes. Due to the originals fame, everyone gets the music, is immediatelly familiar with it, and the jokes are spot on. But they are "one time jokes"...(none of the dystopian future setups has any significant plot influence, expect the "no time machine here" aspect. Wether huaminty is enslaved by giraffes or intelligent toasters does in fact not really matter). So, this song does not really gain upon repeated viewing.
- "I want my hands back" is an unknown song, and by far not as catching as "In the year..." when heard first. But it is no "one time joke", it supports the plot, and will still do so, upon 10th, 20th, 30th etc.. viewing. The more often you see it, the more familiar the song gets, the more does the episode gain upon several viewings.

TLPJF had imhO the best "first viewing" start, but some (not many) other episodes bear a greater "repeated viewing" potential, and therefore will manage to catch up and/or get ahead of TLPJF in the long run...

I would have to say my favorite episode is Roswell that Ends well, or The Devils Hands are Idle Playthings. But I would put The Late Phillip J. Fry in my top 20 list, mostly because I thought a few other episodes from the new season did somewhat better, like Lethal Inspection and Law and Oracle.

That's because you don't understand the ending.

I understood it perfectly. I would have prefered they had found a way to go back in time to Leela in the first universe. Hated how they just brushed off the first universe and left it without Fry, Bender and the Prof.

Anyway, whatevs.

Some of my favorites are "The Farnsworth Paradox", "Luck of The Fryish" (mainly for the ending, makes me cry everytime), "Jurassic Bark", "A Flight to Remember", and basically any episode where Leela and Fry have those moments where they show affection for each other. They make such a sweet couple ^_^

Nice choices, besides what Danny already pointed out. wink

I was watching "Crimes of the Hot" and "Bender should not be allowed on TV" on the weekend, and they're much funnier than I remember them being. Lots of great jokes. A bit of a shame that Cubert spoils BSNBAOTV though...

Hi, Im new here and been a huge Futurama fan since the show started. Some of you may know my brother who posts on here, The Anvil! I have been reading this post and its pretty cool to see which eps people have personally warmed to.

My thoughts of my fav episodes go straight to "The Farnsworth Parabox", "Luck of The Fry rish" and the first 3 episodes. Im yet to see Season 6 here in the UK, I have the DVD order but have to wait till september. Grrr. Cant wait to see season 7.

Bare in mind tho, I love all the episodes, movies, so its hard!

O how could I forget I love the episode with Slurms. Fry and the Slurm Factory!

My favourite episode is 'Luck Of The Fryrish' because I like the ending of that episode the most, it gets me everytime... 'Amazon Women In The Mood' is also a classic.

Welcome. Read this. Before you say anything else, read it. All of it. There will be a test later.



Really enjoyed rewatching The Mutants Are Revolting early this morning when I was having trouble sleeping. It's by no means a new favourite (I also watched TLPJF, RTEW, and TKOS), but it stood out as something that I perhaps underrated on first viewing. For some reason, it really cracked me up this time.

TLPJF and TKOS are close to eclipsing RTEW for me at the moment as favourites though. So much goodness.

All the Presidents Heads, Fry am the Egg Man, and Möbius Dick were my favorite from last season.

ATPH was plain ol' fun and I'd compare it to another episode I love, the deep south.
FATEM had a solid and well executed plot, and they also went to another planet.
MD was a space adventure!!! Need I say more?

In season order my favorites include (using full title names, not initialisms - with a few fave quotes thrown in):

Season 01:
Space Pilot 3000
I, Roomate
Hell is Other Robots ("who knew that Hell actually existed - and that it would be in New Jersey!")

Season 02:
When Aliens Attack ("camera one. camera two. camera three.")
The Problem with Popplers

Season 03:
Parasites Lost
The Luck of the Fryrish
The Day the Earth Stood Stupid
Anthology of Interest 2 ("but he just said 'woo!'")

Season 04:
Jurassic Bark
The Why of Fry
The Sting
The Farnsworth Parabox ("I am not evil.  My loan officer said so." and "Bite my glorious golden ass!")

Season 05 (the movies):
They were alright, but none of them make my favorites list.

Season 06:
The Late Philip J. Fry
Benderama ("All that and a small weiner?  This guy's got it goin' on!")
Reincarnation

Season 07:
still to come!

If I were forced to pick a top three, they would be:
  • 1st – The Sting
  • 2nd – The Luck of the Fryrish
  • 3rd (tie) – The Day the Earth Stood Stupid / Parasites Lost

This list merely indicates the ones that I feel are superior (in the 9/10 range) and which I could watch again and again and never tire of them.  If something isn't listed it doesn't mean I disliked it (for example: Where No Fan Has Gone Before is a solid 8.5 to me but I'm not a Trekkie).

However, I do dislike episodes with too much Zapp Brannigan.  I realize he is so over-the-top as to be funny, but the character irritates me to no end.  It would be great to see him knocked down a few notches - BAM!  Kif deserves mad respect.

The Late Philip J. Fry and The Sting are great and strong episodes, my favorite ones.
Others than them, my personal favorites are The Prisoner of Benda and Three Hundred Big Boys.

Benders Big Score is perfect, it has so many layers that come together in the end. I think Futurama works as a movie very well.

So many good episodes...
