Which Futurama episode do you think has the most clever storyline and why?  One that you really have to admire the writers for, and it doesn't have to be your favourite episode, just one that you think is really imaginative and well done.

Mine is Roswell that Ends Well, because I think the idea that the alien space ship in 1947 in roswell turned out to be the planet express ship is pure genius and they pulled it off brilliantly. I also love AOI2 with the Wizard of Oz take off because I loved how they were able to match the characters to the ones in the movie, it really stood out for me and i always enjoy watching it!

Your thoughts??

This'll probably get moved...maybe even lockinated, thought to be honest I haven't seen a thread with this exact topic.  To answer the question though, I've gotta go with either Leela's story form AOI 1 ("I REALLY like it" ) or The Farnsworth Parabox.  I generally like eps that feature every character, and TFP slightly edges out Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles because it makes more sense.

Like N-o-r said, I really like The Farnsworth Parabox and Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles, and I also liked My Three Suns and Brannigan, Begin Again. MTS really showed how dumb Fry can be and how his stupidity can somehow get him ahead and BBA showed Fry and Bender's laziness and how far they'd go to take the easy way out.

I think that The Why of Fry is a really clever episode. It finds a way to put about five totally unrelated episodes together into a coherent story. Brilliant...

'Roswell that Ends Well' and 'The Birdbot of Ice-catraz' both had excellent writing, I'd go as far as to say the best.
And it's also likely this thread will be closed, too.

My favourite story line? 'Time Keeps on Slipping.'
I always loved it whenever the show went nuts with some sci-fi concept, and I feel that this one was the most original, and used the best.

Runners up:
Why of Fry
Roswell that Ends Well
The Farnsworth Parabox

Yes, Roswell has a great storyline, and so does Parabox. What about The Sting? I was astonished by that episode since the first time I saw it. Letting one important character die, making it look real the whole episode and then revealing that it happened conversely... I don't know, I'm not experienced enough to tell if it's original or not, but I liked it a lot.
