The only episodes that I didn't like were the ones that I didn't see. ie Cartoon Network Episodes.

You forgot to add 'That's Lobstertainment'.  Nothing could save that turkey of an episode.  Only 1 joke - and of course it was Leela's (I always knew that I'd die in the bottom of a pit, but a pit of tar?').

Either Cryonic or Buggalo for me. I didn't like Michelle at all and Buggalo was dull.

The Why of Fry was a great episode. I liked the Scooty Puff Jr and Sr gags.

Fascinating going through this thread, and seeing how the active fan community has shifted over the years since it was started. Early on a lot of people didn't like Deep South, but it hasn't been mentioned in anyone's hate list for a while. Regardless, it has at least one great line "Why couldn't she be the OTHER kind of mermaid, with the body of a woman and the head of a fish?"
I liked Cryonic tho, even though the initial premise seemed a bit contrived.
Guess I should mention my least favorite episode while I'm posting. I'm gonna have to go with "Bendin' in the Wind" as my least-favorite (though there's not a single episode I actually dislike)

My least favourite episode is "the Route Of All Evil" If not for the Bender brewing beer subplot, that episode would've turned into vile vomit in my mouth!

By the way, i enjoyed "That's Lobstertainment" Does that make me a bad person? But maybe that's just because I Love Calculon and his fantastic "ACTING TALENT!"

worst episode ever! How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back

« #615 : 12-08-2005 14:07 »

Aw, man, I really liked "How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back." I guess it might be concidered a little dry, but I thought all the beurocrat jokes were hilarious. Sortof like the "neutral" jokes from "Brannigan, Begin again" which some people don't seem to get either. ("All I know is my gut says maybe." )

And since my last post on this thread I watched "The Honking" again and it wasn't as funny as I remembered, though Fry being jealous that Bender tried to kill Leela was amusing. Seems ridiculous to say this about a show like Futurama, but somehow the episode seemed nonsensical even by futuama's standards. Don't get me wrong, Calculon's claim that he was "All of history's greatest acting robots" including David Duchovney was funny, but it's a bit bizarre to reveal him to be over 1,000 years old, and a Were-Car to boot.

Why I must be a Crustacean in love is one of the best! Mas Rarraf, you got to see Zoidbergs homeworld! You got the gag about teaching Zoidberg love! With the funny quote "Its all so conmplicated with the love and the romance and the lies upon lieess" LOL Also you got to see the deathmatch between 2 of the best characters Zoidberg and Fry with the funny things like Fry choosing the nutcracker etc! I completely disagree and think that Why must I be a crustacean in love has no right in this topic! Its one of my favourites.

I'm a big Zoidburg fan myself. Zoidburg is an essential character; there has to be a character more pathetic than Fry, since we're supposed to relate to Fry. And since Fry is extremely pathetic himself, that's no small order!  ;)

I have only just started reading this site after a break of 12 months and I see in the news area the following quote

Futurama was cancelled because there was nobody at Fox at the time who cared enough about it to give it the proper time slot.

Well really it was cancelled becuase people were not watching it because the ratio of good eps to bad eps was not high enough. Sure even the worst eps had a few gags that were gold, but too many eps had only the one. Over the last 2 weeks I sat down and re watched all the DVD's one after the otherand was actually a bit disappointed with quite a few eps. Kiff gets knocked up a notch was just plain excremental, closely followed by any ep heavy with the Leela and Fry love thing. If they want to bring it back they need to fire David Cohen or at least ban him from the writing room (most of his Simpsons blow as well), de-nerd the show a tad and drop the whole Fry and Leela thing.
Don't get me wrong, I like the show and I do not regret buying all of the DVD's, but as a series it has some flaws in the writing that made it less than it should have been.

Are you kidding?The Deep South wasn't my favorite but I didn't think it was boring.I liked the part where Zoidberg's house caught fire in the ocean.

and mine is 'the deep south' now. having donovan guest star was kind of pointless and the worst celebrity appearence. the episode kind of reminded me of a good 'American Dad' episode which is terrible.

I agree that dropping Fry and Leela in love would be a major improvement! I hated those eps, she doesnt love u Fry, get over it.

But to fire David Cohen would be terrible! Without him the show would become a Family Guy or... *shudder* new simpsons. Although, the Why of Fry sucked.

  :hmpf:

Gee, maybe they should just eliminate that whole “science fiction” angle, too. 

Tell me, why are you even bothering to watch Futurama?  It seems you dislike everything that makes it, well, Futurama.

I think you’re confused.  You probably want the "Tripping the Rift" forums down the hall.  Or some other gutless, shallow, by-the-numbers sitcom that never challenges its viewers or transcends its genre.

Worst ep.?  I'm trying to decide between "That's Lobstertainment" (good premise, bad ending), "Cryonic Woman" (lame premise, OK ending), but I finally decided on:

"A Leela of her Own".  Yeah, I get it.  The plot is so straightforward that it's impossible not to get the point.  But it's just not funny enough.  At least Lobstertainment and Cryonic had a few funny jokes.  (A few more than ALohO, at least.)

Worst episode? I must say Raging Bender. Just didn't do it for me. And it was really too cliche and standard.

Also I must respectfully disagree with the guy, and anyone else, who holds the view that the Leela and Fry thing should be dropped.

In my opinion, that is just one of the things that makes Futurama great. What I love about Futurama isn't just it's hilarity, but that the characters have *depth*, and I actually find myself caring about them. The show isn't afraid to have genuine sad and depressing moments either, and is quite good at having those without failing miserably and just ending up with something so cheesy it makes me cringe.

If I wanted a show that was just straight comedy with shallow characters I didn't really care about, I'd watch Family Guy. It's a hilarious show, it truly is. I rarely see an episode I don't laugh at...yet it pales in comparison to Futurama, because I really don't care about any of the characters on Family Guy. The entire world of FG just seems alot more flat and static than Futurama.

And one of the main reasons? It all comes back to the Leela and Fry thing. It's a romance handled excellently, very rarely becoming cliche and corny, and actually making you *feel* for Fry; that he tries so hard for Leela, yet is again and again knocked back to square one, but for those few fleeting moments where they actually get something going, some romance. And I *don't* (necessarily) mean sex.

And despite this, and this is also what sets it apart from other shows, it can have this depth and romance, and *still* be a hilarious show. Most shows can only manage one or the other, they are a show with depth and romance but incredibly lame attempts at 'humor', or a show like Family Guy, which is hilarious but has very shallow characters and lame attempts at actual depth.

That is what makes Futurama great and what would make removing the Fry and Leela romance a bad idea.
