I actually think the first episode I saw was Space Pilot 3000, Sky1 were playing them all in order, I'd heard of it, within about 10 minutes I was completely hooked as well. It was that long ago now that I can't really remember though.

Hi Kornography - nice episode choices, same favourite one as me, that's always a good thing big grin

I think my first episode may have been "A Leela of Her Own", which may explain why I am much more fond of it than a lot of other PEELers.

Likewise, as my first episode the somewhat unpopular "The Honking" elicits warm smiles from me.

I still haven't managed to determine one favorite episode though.

"The Honking" is somewhat unpopular?  That's one of my favorites.  I always love it when cartoons do episodes that are holiday themed, like the Simpsons & their Halloween shows (and Futurama's 2 XMAS shows).  This one is about as close as they've come to a Futurama Halloween episod, and I love it.  It has one of my favorite Futurama lines of all time: "I can't keep running people over; I'm not famous enough to get away with it..."

My first episode was Spanish Fry, and despite it's rather lukewarm reception, I'd still put it in my top ten somewhere.

@Gorky: AMEN! ALOHO is the most underated episodes out there!

My first episode was Space Pilot 3000, it is a great episode. I do not know if I would say it is my favorite. It is great though.

I think a really underrated episode is My Three Suns, that has some great lines by Fry

"That's the saltiest thing I've ever tasted, and I once ate a heaping bowl of salt!"

"It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long, the grasshopper kept burying acorns for the winter, while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. But then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns. And also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you?"

"My vision's fading! I think I'm gonna die!"

I also like When Aliens Attack because pretty much everything Zapp says in that episode is hiliarious

Everything Zapp says is hillarious D:, my favourite episode is probably the why of fry, for storyline and pure epicness. The best in a comedic way for me is probably amazon women in the mood, I was in stiches throughout that whole episode, especially the comparisons of fry-zapp and kif pure comedy genius.

War Is The H-Word to me embodies the best humor of Futurama. The entire episode is packed with winning jokes almost every second. It's by far my favorite and I can recite almost the entire episode by heart. big grin

Semi-related anecdote: I once played "The Sting" (more or less in its entirety) in my head during church. It. Was. Awesome.

Also, I agree with Josh that "War is the H-Word" is one of the greatest episodes. I just got done watching "Amazon Women in the Mood", and I feel the same way about that one--it's just non-stop hilarity, with the teensiest bit of heart tossed in there for flavor. That's Futurama at its best right there.

My favorite episode of Futurama is also my least favorite. Mainly cause it made me bawl. That one is "Jurassic Bark". My second favorite is "Kif Gets Knocked Up a Notch". Mainly becuase I love the idea of pregnant men.

And yet "Where the Buggalo Roam" is at the bottom of your list?

"Where the Buggalo Roam" is just so boring to me; it drags. I think "Kif Gets Knocked Up a Notch" is funnier, and moves at a faster clip.

Choosing my favourie episode of Futurama is like Sophie's Choice...

I have to say Amazon Women in the Mood. It's the funniest episode of Futurama. It has everything. Sex jokes. Sexist jokes. Slapstick. Zapp Brannigan. And funniest of all: Zapp Brannigan singing like William Shatner! Also, the episode probably has the funniest DVD audio commentary of the series.

Tied for second are A Head in the Polls and The Day the Earth Stood Stupid. My other favourites are War is the H-Word, Brannigan, Begin Again, Roswell That Ends Well, The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings, and Where No Fan Has Gone Before.

I have a lot of favorites.  Just to name a few:

My Three Suns
Space Pilot 3000
Amazon Women in the Mood

and I know some people didn't care for Bender's Game, but I really enjoyed it, probably my favorite of the movies.

Here (as a .xls) is the mighty grand spreadsheet dissecting Futurama Episode Survivor 2005 and 2009 and comparing them to CGEF (Rotten Tomato Community for movies, as there are no CGEF) ratings. The ^ and v are how many spots the moved from 2005 to 2009.

I tiered episodes into 8 almost-even groups based their ratings: God, Great, Good, Okay, Meh, Bad, Ugly, and Stinker. The most interesting stat is the tier averages, which are found below the rankings. As you can see, the 2005 Survivor was closer to "truth" with the tiering.

The disparity in 2009 (high tiers actually being lower, low tiers being inflated) is due to the movies. Into the Wild Green Yonder was at 10; being a good tier, that was actually inflation. However, Bender's Big Score was a great tier and dropped to 64 (should be at lowest 18), Bender's Game was okay but dropped to 70 (should be at lowest 37), and The Beast with a Billion Backs was okay but dropped to 76, also known as last place. Due to these deflations of the movies, the lower tiers moved up on average.

This deflation could've been due to sentiments about the movies in their immediate wake. Additionally, CGEF rankings may be a little kooky; The Farnsworth Parabox is meh by their standard but 10th in 2005 and 14th in 2009 (Great Tier territory), and Mother's Day is a stinker but 42nd in 2005 and 33rd in 2009 (Meh and Okay Tier territories respectively).


Hopefully that file uploaded correctly!

Doesn't the difference in the voting pool also account for some of the discrepancies between the 2005 Survivor and the one from last year? For example, I know I participated in the more recent Survivor, and not-so-much in the first one (at least not extensively; I think I may have been around for a wee bit before my Not-So-Great Disappearance). A lot of people who participated in 2005 did not participate in 2009, and vice versa.

At any rate, excellent work there, i_c.

I liked some of the Zapp-isms in IAGDL. I think the problem with that episode is that Zapp really is the male lead, and maybe he can't sustain an episode of his own when

There were decent lines. Such as the whole... shit. I can't do this here. I hate putting things in spoiler tags... but overall, there was nothing as magnificent as that one line. That one word. It was just that good.
