I wouldn't call you a cyst CT. :)
I heard that only something like 11% of Welsh people speak Welsh. I guess they want to keep it because the English took it from them...
I'll watch that next time I'm on a computer, (my phone doesn't stream stuff) I watch QI at every opportunity, so I have probably already seen that episode. Still, I'll watch it again anyway. :) I love (most) comedy panel shows. David Mitchell is a funny man. Do you ever watch 10 O' Clock Live? I'm somewhat in love with Charlie Brooker! XD

I think of both of you as cysts on the uterus of the human race, if that helps at all.

I feel like Cubert is underrated. I like him a lot, and I wish he would get more time on the show. ANy other Cubert fans out there?

I would have laughed in your face if this was posted pre-season 6, but now I sort of agree with you. He was fine in TLPJF, and pretty good in Overclockwise.

But still a pain in the rear during the original run, unfortunately.

Yeah Cubert has turned into a pretty likeable character, I wouldn't mind seeing him get a lot more screen time. As long as he doesn't go back to be an annoying dick.

I do (and always have) loved Cubert and Cubert-heavy episodes. Perhaps in part because I grew up watching Rugrats, which had a lot of Kath Soucie in it. :rolleyes:

I'm sure we'll at least see a bit of him during "The Bots and The Bees". Ben is sure to have some interactions with him and Dwight. Sure, it might only be 10 seconds, but I'm sure he'll appear.

I kinda think the opposite. I liked him more as a brat, he was a funnier and stronger character. Now he's toned down and weaker, just more familiar and established, starting to become part of the furniture. He's more like a convenient predictability and not a loose canon charged with potential for excitement...

He's kind of annoying either way, but I did like the original idea of letting the viewers take pleasure in watching Leela-Fry-Bender smack Cubert around when he gets too mouthy.

Now I really want to see an adaptation of the New Testament starring David Duchovny as Jesus.

Which replaces my earlier desire to have the story updated and set in the year 666,666AD (retitled The Adventures of Space Jesus in 3D).

I like Igner as well. I'm glad they kind of decided to turn him into the show's stupidest character, because... well... I don't even know why. I just like it. :)

Also, he's one of the best things in Bender's Game. We're owwwwl exterminators.

...Second.

Actually, Zoidberg is my favorite. He may be pathetic and inept, but EVERYTHING he says and does is hilarious. And I love that he can just fly into a psychotic rage for no reason at all. "ORDER THE CAKE, DAMMIT!!"  :laff:

Plus there's the voice. I have a feeling that Billy West could simply read the phone book in Zoidberg's voice, and I'd be entertained.

Zoidy's been my favorite since I registered here.

He's just funny, doesn't really have a handle on how to get by on Earth. In some ways, his alien origins and earnest personality make him more of a shellfish out of water than even the temporally displaced Fry. Zoidy's actually not a bad guy aside from the horrifying ineptitude in practicing medicine and his behavior in mating season.

I've never really thought of it that way, but you're right. Fry is supposed to be the one everyone can relate to, because he's out of place, but he actually fits in on Earth a LOT better than Zoidberg.

And yeah, Zoidy really IS a nice guy; probably one of the most consistently nice characters on the show. He just fails at life, that's all. :laff:

I love zoidberg. He's so nice and innocent, and just wants to fit in. plus, his small knowledge of basic human anatomy is really funny too.

Definitely Fry.  Bender may be the breakout character of the series, but Fry is the one who holds everything together.  There's a direct correlation between how much Fry appears in an episode and my enjoyment of said episode.  More Fry =  more enjoyment.  :)

While Fry isn't the womanizer that Bender is, he has gotten into interesting sexual relationship situations that have actually worked well.

Definitely Fry.  Bender may be the breakout character of the series, but Fry is the one who holds everything together.  There's a direct correlation between how much Fry appears in an episode and my enjoyment of said episode.  More Fry =  more enjoyment.  :)

Early Fry worked the same way as the duo C3PO/R2D2 in the classic Star Wars movies. Though that character does not have to do very much, the "regular guy" is best suited as the centre, so to speak. A theme explored in "LaO", when without Fry everything seemd to fall apart.*

As I stated before, Fry held the Trio together, via the "Bender - Best Buddy" and "Leela - Love interest" link. By putting Fry and Leela seemingly together in season 7A, I was hoping the writers did repair the "love intereset link" (that was basically removed from season 6B), and the whole trio character constellation and dynamics would be restored.
Yet, as season 7A seems to focus heavily on Leela and Bender by now, removing Fry from the centre can once again destroy the link.

*(A theme already explored by Yeates, in "The second coming": "Things fall apart, the centre cannot hold. Though some folks pursue the daring theory Yeates did NOT refer to Futurama in that poem.... :D :p )

While he isn't my favourite character (that accolade belongs to Fry) I have to say the most underrated character in the show, in my opinion, is Joey Mousepad. There's something about his New Yorker/Italian American one liners that get me every time. But these days, the Robot Mafia seems to be all about Donbot and Clamps, and that makes me sad.

I love Joey. Just the way he muddles his words up.

"You see this over here over there?"

"Ain't that your wife what you had that wedding with?"

And of course, Calculon's impersonation of him. "I'm a big idiot Hollywood dumb guy what does dat sorta ting."
