to get things out of the clear, I believe there is no Amy centric episode, some may argue that Where the Bugaloo roam, but that was mainly Kif, along with Kif gets knocked up a notch, also put your head on my shoulder which was mainly a Fry episode, not really Amy. I think Amy should get an episode just like everyone else did, who agree's with me, also what kind of episode would you want her to be the main character of it

Well, I'd disagree... I'd say "Kif Gets Knocked Up a Notch" was an Amycentric episode, since it was less about Kif's pregnancy than about Amy's reaction to it.

Also, "Where the Buggalo Roam" and "Put Your Head On My Shoulder" are Amy centric as well.

Disagree. 100%.

Give me any example and I can give you at least one side-story per episode that does not feature the character in question.

Nothing. Nothing. There is absolutely no truth to the rumor that there's a secret unlockable episode on Disc 4 of Season 1.

Each one of those has just as much as a side story involving another character as an of the more Amy filled episodes do.

LH: Bender's job dumping trash.

OF: Got me here.

ALOHO: The Sigmoids and their pizza business.

T30%IC: Zoidberg ruining the ship in the bottle. C'mon, that was an easy one.

ATOF: Earth vs. the Decapodians sorta became a side story.

TWOF: Leela and Chas... the mayor's aide.

But Bend Her was really almost just as much about Calculon as it was about Bender.

Well, the trash-dumping storyline was not so much a side story as it was more just a way of getting them into the sewers. Unlike in LoTF or ISTE where what got them into the sewers was a more integral part of the plot--Fry's clover-search and Nibbler getting flushed, respectively.

I agree that Amy was probably the most under-used character, but I do think PYHOMS, KGKUAN and WTBR were sufficiently Amy-centric. It would be nice to see a couple more episodes about her, though.

For Bend Her yes it was also about Calculon but there was no side story to it.

So of the episodes you've listed, I'm willing to concede exactly 2 - "Bend Her" and "Obsoletely Falbulous."  Oh, and The Sting, which you didn't mention but just occurred to me.  And I'll give you half-credit for Leela's Homeworld.

So that's two Bender episodes and 1.5 Leela episodes (both of which are major characters) where the story is 100% focused on the one character.  Not exactly compelling basis of comparison for your complaint.

In fact, I'd argue that Hermes has been even more shortchanged than Amy.  Amy has 3 episodes where it can be argued that she was at the center of the story, Hermes has one (HHRHGB), and he's not even in a good portion of it.  Two, if you count his buddy act with the Professor in Route of all Evil.

I would love to see an episode dedicated to Zapp and Kiff (sarcastic Kif, not pussified Kif).

As for being one of the three major characters, looking back Leela really didn't have many eps dedicated to her.  Definitely more than Amy but not as many as one would think.

My belief is she is the 'straight man' and needs the foils of Bender and Fry to play off.  Alone, stories totally dedicated to her would be difficult.

If the series ever gets totally revived - maybe a 'girls-only' ep dedicated to Amy and Leela (no, no lesbian scenes - get your minds out of the gutter).

But I like the gutter. Its were I found my couch. That does sound like an interesting idea for an episode. There's a mini comic that's like that. I think its called "Hostile Makeover".

The latest comic book had an Amy-centric story.

I think its stupid to say that an episode isn't centered on one person just because there's more than one character or story line.
No ep can hve one character who has all the dialougue and major role.
 I think that even though In the 'why of fry' leela dates chaz it's still a fry centered episode, in '30% iron chef' just because zoidberg ruins a bottle it doesn't make it any less of  bender centered episode and for the same reason i don't think 'where the buggalo roam,' 'kif get's knocke up a knotch,' and 'put your head on my shoulder,' should be not be seen as amy es just becaue another character is relevent to the story.

Saying 'Amy centric' means the story should revolve around her not star her and her alone.

"Put Your Head on My Shoulders" is the closest thing to an Amycentric episode there is.  "Amazon Women in the Mood", "Where the Buggalo Roam", and "Kif Gets Knocked Up a Notch" are really more Kif episodes.

I don't think that Futurama really needed more Amycentric episodes though.  I just think that she should have been used alongside the other characters more, instead of just being part of the scenery.

Sure.  That's why she spends a good third of the episode off-screen while Fry, Bender, and Leela escort Kif to his homeworld to perform the birthing rites.

Really, the only way to tell if an episode is centric for a character is by saying wo's perspective it's in the most. Where the Buggalo roam is from Kif's perspective on Amy missing and trying to impress her parents. In "Kif gets knocked up a knotch" it is Kif facing the pregnancy and Amy briefly leaving him.

 Like Hermes (has no real own episode, as his story in "How Hermes requ..." is more of a B story and Fry's affair is bigger) Amy is a character who has a a simple character trait and it is harder to right from their perspective and keep a story going.
