You love using the word ass in you titles eh?

Some are pretty good. Not many that are actual deliveries... just like the real series.

Actually, there have been loads of delivery episodes. For you see, in most titles I use, "On the way back from a delivery" or "Professor Farnsworth asks the crew to go on a delivery to..." and it kind of sets up the main plot - so in the actual episode it would have a bit before the main plot about the delivery.

As for the ass bit, I've only done it in "The Ass Chip" and "Brain in the Ass." I wouldn't exactly call it using it alot. And, er, thanks for the compliment.   smile

I’m not meaning to criticise every episode. If I see something that I think is good I’ll tell you but I assume you posted this here because you wanted our opinions.
First: You seem to like things just attacking for no good reason. These don’t make the best episodes.
Second: You seem to like swapping Farnsworth and Mom around. Do it once, it could be okay. Do it hundreds of times, it gets boring.
Third: Do you realise how much you just parody. I’m sure I saw two Jurassic Park parodies.

94. "Anthology of Interest IV"
Okay ‘What if Fry took a job as a pizza delivery boy’ doesn’t sound too exciting. ‘What if Leela was the only person left alive’ sounds interesting. ‘What if Fry and Leela started dating’ that’s basically part of The Farnsworth Parabox.
95. "Leela the Linda"
Don’t like episodes that just swap two already existing characters like this. Though it would be nice to see some more of Morbo.
96. "Reality Game 3004"
Like the concept here.
98. "Sophisticated Fry"
That concept is trying too hard.
102. "XMassacre"
Once again this is working the concept a bit hard.
104. "Jurassic Planet"
Like Zoidberg’s role in this one. A good idea.
107. "Secrets of the Titanic"
Hmm, no. I just don’t like this idea. It sounds like you’ve started with the title and worked backwards.
108. "Run Leela Run"
Nice idea here. I like this one.
109. "Valentine's Day"
No. I think you’re trying too hard to put these two people together.
111. "The Soul Demon"
Could be good, but that title needs work.
112. "Anthology of Interest V"
Question One: Possibly. Two: No, Earth is invaded all the time. Three: Nice idea for this one.
113. “Clip Show II: Future Futurama”
I don’t like clip shows. And how do you work out that Zoidberg will ever become successful?
114. "The Frylight Zone"
Maybe. Maybe not. It all depends.
115. "Bender vs. Nixon"
Don’t like. Plain and simple.
116. "The Smart of War"
Could work. Would like to see Morbo host a game show and do something horrible to the loser or something.
117. "Leela's Date With Destiny"
No, pushing too hard.
118. "The Wong Way from Home"
I’m not sure. The concept could be done well I suppose, but I just don’t like the sound of it.
119. "The Hip, New Professor"
Could be good. Depends upon what type of new professor there is. Perhaps you could get Wernstrum?
121. "The Model Delivery Crew"
No, don’t like. It’s another automatic attack episode.
123. "Home for Xmas"
Don’t like. Concept doesn’t work. Why would anyone think that people would care about Zoidberg. And anyway, you’d have to be as dumb as fry to actually accept the invitation.
125. "The Bot That Knew Too Much"
126. "Campaign in the Neck"
Nope next.
127. "The Day Roberto Returned"
You just sound like you want to see Roberto again.
128. "Fatmates"
Lose the idea of Bender having stolen too much, he has an infinite inside, it seems. Plus it also seems he can grow to fat anyway. (BirdBot of IceCatraz) Just have him fat the old fashioned way. Could be good other than that.
128-9. "3106: A Futurama Odyssey"
I don’t think anyone out in New New York cares about Fry and I think that the second part is strange and confusing.
130. "The Blast and the Furious"
First 100 MPH is slow for a spaceship.  And second I don’t think that he’ll be coming for revenge.
131. "Anthology of Interest VI"
1. Do you mean Adlai. We’ve already seen him, lets move on people. 2. Could be a good question. 3. You mean like we could see everyone with lots of money, and Zoidberg still being paid nothing. Good idea actually.
132. "Lifestyles of a Pornographer"
That’s a bit of a weak episode.
133. "The Walking Television"
First, you’d have to be really bored to do that. Second, nice idea the tv hallucinations, but they should really be used to run into something else.
135. "Fry in Wonderland"
A definite maybe.
 
137. "Frynority Report"
Same as 119 isn’t it?
138. "Out With the New, in With the Old"
He probably already stole all their organs. Plus he doesn’t seem to care about bad deliveries. If he did then the crew would be out of there by now.
139. "The Gamesmaster"
I wouldn’t recommend this one.
140. "The Silencing"
Oh god, no.
141. "Xmas Stories"
Nah, don’t like this.
142. "Planet of the Primates"
More mindless invading. Although all the blokes trying to form civilisation would be pretty funny.
143. "Love, Alien Style"
Don’t really like this.
144. "Guess Which Alien's Coming to Stay"
I was waiting to see an episode where you’d have lrrr and ngdn (?)
145. "Me and My Space-cow"
Like the effect, don’t like the cause.
146. "Cubert's Birthday"
Nah, leave Cubert alone, he’s boring.
147. “Nixon's Body"
Okay idea but don’t you think that Nixon could find another body to fit onto or have one custom built as he’s the president. Plus you might want a better title than that.
148. "Where's YOUR Career Chip?"
Scrap career chips, thing of the past.
150. "Scruff Daddy"
Too much scruffy is a bad thing.

I would continue but I need sleep.

You, my friend, are a complete nitpicker. I doubt you could think of 200+ episode ideas that a load of people actually like rather than bitching about them.

A couple other complaints. 1)Some of your episode titles are already in use by fanfics. "The Frylight Zone" by Kryten and myself which IMO is much better than your idea but I could be wrong. "Beat the Parents" by BBT and the description matches her story almost word for word. 2)You need to change your disclaimer. You do not own the characters, you are borrowing them, say so.

Thank you

I think some of the ideas sound pretty good, but I think that the Fry/Leela ambiguity would be going on too long, I mean you're up to 16? seasons, and they're still not together?  It seems like it would just get too ridiculous, I mean I could see the relationship gradually increase, but it just seems like it goes on for too long.  My two cents.

Also, I notice that the plot of "Amy the Leela" is suspiciously similar to my own "A Wong and a Prayer". Right down to Zapp and the space pirates.

Horay! Thats what I was thinking!

And isn't 'I, Smartass' a bit close (in title) to 'I, Roommate'? What a joke! And "When Mutants Attack!" It's like they are copying their own show.

And what's with all the 'Blank the blank' episodes. Sounds like the Simpsons. And all the 'Blank vs. blank' episodes. More Simpsons.

But other than that, thats a hell of a lot of descriptions.

Indeed it is the same as that episode i changed how it happened for one reason. In the Futurama universe space travel is not easy lots of your ideas involve time travel for no explainable reason. plus thats a really good parady. Sorry if u thought i was a nick picker but i said it was fine. The difference is i didnt rip of the whole of the episode and the name with concent. your episode also makes no sense. Plus you have said numerous times you try writing 200+ episodes...how many have you done? you ripped mine off so who knows? i also said i didnt care if you took my idea. not nickpicking just a passing comment...sheesh.

Yeah, I think I see it...wait...almost...aw damn it turned to garbage again.     laff

I said it before, I'll say it again. Saying "You think up 200+ titles" is not a good defense to criticism. Criticism, learn to love it or get out.

Edit: Change this or open yourself to a lawsuit

All characters and episode ideas copyright © 2003,

Those characters are NOT yours. Nowhere on your page do I see something saying otherwise. If you're going to bother with a disclaimer, do it right.

Edit of some outrage:

 "The Impressionable Mind"

Leela feels incredibly guilty when she discovers Fry has been sent to hospital after being hit by a bus when he was attempting to show his love for Leela - again. When Leela visits him at the hospital, she becomes suspicious that there might be something going on between Fry and another patient, and she tries to discover what is really going on. A week later, Fry comes out of hospital and him and the other patient, who is named Wanda, hit it off really well and Leela becomes upset. She decides that there is only one thing left to do - ask him to go out with her. Fry becomes tangled up in a web of confusion, and soon, the time space continium plays tricks on him and all of his past memories appear in front of him, demanding things from him. Fry is stuck with what to do because he loves them all, and Leela feels even more guilty than she was before http://leelazone.com.ar/fanfic/impressionable.shtml 

This link leads to MY story. It's so similiar I almost believe the idea is not yours.  no no

Here's a synopsis:
"The Impressionable Mind": After a hard day's delivery, Leela's condemnation of Fry reaches new lows, forcing him to run for his life... into the path of an oncoming bus. At the hospital, a guilt ridden Leela finds that Fry has lost his memory, as well as his personality, and has found a new love... what can she do?

Pixilate, you've got mail.

Anyway,  you do need to chill just a bit.  We criticize ACTUAL episodes, so of course we'l criticize fake ones.  It's no big deal.  Some of them were real winners, some not. 
And as for ripping ideas...
"Little Devil Bender" is the EXACT plot of a Futurama comic.  The Robot Devil takes a vacation and Bender replaces him.  EXACT same plot.  But it's no big deal.  With all the people in the world, odds are, they sometimes come up with the same idea.  It happens.

I still think a ton of your episodes are impressive.

PS.  You seriously should change that copyright thing.  People get  websites shut down when they admit they don't own the characters, I can't imagine what would happen to you.  And I really don't want your site to close since I haven't finished reading it yet.

Re: the dispute about who ripped of who.

This is the exact reason, Matt and Co wont read fanfic (or visit messageboards). Not because they think it's rubbish (Matt have said he like the idea of fanfiction), simply because it opens up a world of grief for them. Sometime, somewhere, someone will notice how a tiny aspect of an episode resemble a fanfic they wrote, or a offhand remark they made in an obscure post. Most people will be flattered (although it probably happened completely by coincidence), but there'll always be someone who take great offense at not being credited.

Now, this is not directed at anyone, I'm just telling an anecdote.
