"Luck Of The Fryish", where Fry believed that his brother Yancy was stealing everything of his out of spite.

That's a great episode. Futurama was really REALLY good up until I think it was season three or four where it all turned to crud.

Speaking of futurama, did anyone see the season finale of the Simpsons? The (not-so-hard-to-catch) Futurama reference in there was great.

"Why did they cancel futurama?!"

*plunges off cliff*

"Luck Of The Fryish" was part of the third season, "30% Iron Chef" (where Bender takes on Elzar in an Iron Chef cookoff) was in season four, and the greatest Futurama episode ever was in season five: "Jurassic Bark".

So I dare say Futurama stayed pretty good up until its end.

I love that episode of Futurama, everytime I watch and Yancy says the line about naming his son Fry after his uncle strikes an emotional chord with me.

It was hardly crud. Season One has zero bad episodes. Season Two has Zero bad episodes. Season Three has one bad episode (That's Lobstertainment) and Season Four has one bad episode (The Sting).

You won't find a better good to bad ratio in any other show.

Yeah, this is all subject to opinion, but I thought "The Sting" was pretty good, but only after you see the last episode. It was the best setup of Fry & Leela, and not to mention Bender's lament about waffles.

I think the main reason I disliked it, was the way it's positioned in the series. It's very, very close (When watched in order) To obsoletely fabulous. Which is *SPOILERS*

Another dream sequence episode, which I think on the whole was far superior. I've never been a fan of Dream sequence episodes in any show anyway, which probably didn't help the cause either.

Yeah, but you've got to figure that "Obsoletely" focuses primarily on Bender. It's a similar premise in how the character develops, but story-wise, "The Sting" was necessary.

That being said, there's no better Bender moment than when he...

Makes a canoe out of a "Boating Prohibited" sign while bawling his eyes out.

I've never laughed as hard while watching the show than with that.

Man, I loved The Sting. It's quite possibly my favorite episode. I thought it was really meaningful, and the ending was perfect. I loved That's Lobstertainment, too. Man, I miss that show.

I think my favorite episode was Spanish Fry from Season Four. It has All my favorite Bender lines in it. I very much doubt I can convey the absolute hilarity of them in text, but I shall type them out anyway to refresh the memories of those who have seen it.

Bender: Hey look! Bigfoot! He's bacK!

Animal Conservationist Guy: Where?!

Bender: Up your face!

Bender: Everybody do the Bender!

I laughed so hard at the up your face line, and the dance he does afterwards is just as funny. I almost had a heart attack.

Then, just as I was recovering from that line.

Bender: Fry, Fry wake up! It's me! Bigface!

I love how Bender makes absolutely no effort to disguise his voice. So funny.

Then just as you thought the Bender-funny was over for the episode, he starts making the aside jokes. So someone will say something, and Bender will yell from offscreen a responce. Example.

Fry: Yes! I never thought I'd escape with my doodle, but I pulled it out!

Bender: Just like at the movie theatre!

:lol:

I miss that show :(

Bendless Love would be my favourite, with Bender Should Not Be Allowed On Television, 30% Iron Chef and Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles being other great eps.

The dvds are worth the money for those who don't have them, btw. The commentary on Bender Should Not Be Allowed On Television is hilarious.

What happened in Jurassic Bark?

Back in the past, Fry finds a dog on a way to a delivery, which turns out to be a prank call. He eats the pizza with the dog and it follows him back to the pizza place. From then on, Fry and the dog, who's name I can't remember, are best friends. On new years eve 1999, Fry does out for his last delivery and the dog tries to stop him going, which causes, IMO, the best line ever in Futurama.

The dog's pulling at Fry's trousers and Mr. Panucci says

"What's up with the dog? He either doesn't want you to go or he thinks your pants are too short, which is crazy 'cause you look fabulous"

Anyway, Fry says to the dog to wait and he'll be back soon. So the dog waits outside until he actually dies, but you get to see the dog aging as the years go on.

But, in the future, they find the dog's fossels. The professor says they can clone him. Bender gets jealous that Fry is paying too much attention to the dog and not to him and Bender ends up throwing the dog's fossels in lava, but he feels bad and goes in after them.

During the cloning, the age comes up saying the dog was, I think, 14 when he died. Fry says that although he never forgot about the dog, the dog would have forgotten about him and stops the cloning. That's when it goes to the dream sequence of the dog waiting.

It's a great and well thought out episode. I got choked up the first time I watched it.
