People are just voting for their favorites. That being said, I think these episodes rated so poorly because they only appeal to certain people. I personally love APTR, can see some good in TL and hate the others. They all have some good in them, although at the moment I cant remember any in ALOHO

The most potential you ask?

I think 'A Pharaoh to remember' was good as it was. 'A Leela of her own' and 'That's Lobstertainment' were stuck in the plot, I think it would have been hard to add more jokes, etc. without blowing it up too much.

'The cryonic women' had the most potential, if Michelle wouldn't have been so annoying and if the writers didn't forget about the future having no wheels and other stuff, this episode would have been better.

I agree with a lot of what's been said already.  I voted for "Lobstertainment," because I think they could have done a lot more with the Hollywood setting, the movie industry, and Harold Zoid.  A lot of missed potential there.

As for the others, I agree with Mouse On Venus that ALOHO would have been better if they had kept the wacky spirit of blernsball from "Fear of a Bot Planet."  As it was, I think it (both blernsball and the episode itself) came off as a little dull.  I really have no complaints about APTR; I liked it quite a bit.  I wouldn't really give it "classic" status, though.  Indeed, it often seems like the episodes that people consider classics tend NOT to be ones centering around some weird new planet, as funny as those episodes can be.  And I agree with pretty much everyone that "The Cryonic Woman" would have been better without Pauly Shore and with a decent conclusion, but I liked it overall.

 I voted Pharaoh... since it was the best to start with of the four and just had oodles of potential with Bender as Supreme Overlord... pity the plot just wandered, I still liked it though.

I think ALOHO could have done with a better secondary plot; those immigrants grated on my nerves. Some of their bits were funny but some of them just fell flat. Also, they could have done a LOT more with Blernsball, filled it out more; I would really have enjoyed that. Would love to have seen Steinbrenner's head for example...

I voted for TL! because Hank Azaria's great to begin with and Uncle Zoid would make a hilarious character to apear from time to time, kind of like Troy McClure from The Simpsons (except Zoid knows he's washed up).

I voted for The Cryonic Woman, i don't feel it's the best episode ever, but out of the four, it's the one that has truly stuck with me. Hilariously well crafted but had greater potential when it came to character building. Hands Down to the genius of Matt Groening, that's all i can say...

I'm voting for the The Cryonic Woman as i think that could have potentially had a really amusing second half. 

But i'm sorry, i'm a HUGE FAN of pharoh, i think it's a classic already and always will!  Obviously i'm in the minority tho, the poor fraudy sexy minority!
