After getting into a bit of Futurama recently, I’ve recently put together what I believe to be the best 5 episodes to date. Of course, this is all in my opinion, and could well be the worst 5; I’m putting them here for my own future reference. However, if you did want to watch some Futurama, I genuinely believe you could do a lot worse than these 5.
Roswell that ends well (s3e20)
When the Planet Express ship travels through time to Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947, Fry becomes his own progeny.
The Farnsworth Parabox (s4e15)
The Planet Express crew goes to a parallel universe made accessible by Professor Farnsworth’s latest experiment.
The Late Philip J. Fry (s6e7)
The Professor invents a one-way time machine that takes the crew ever further into the future with no hope of returning.
The Prisoner of Benda (s6e10)
A revolutionary invention allows the crew members to exchange minds.
Bender gains the ability to self-replicate, threatening to overrun Earth with vast swarms of copies of himself.
Due to the movies being classed as “season 5,” Netflix lists them by “volumes” and the movies separately. As such, season 6 = volume 5 and season 7 = volume 6; and so on and so forth when future seasons are released.
As a bonus, I am pretty sure the worst episode ever is Reincarnation (s7e13.) It may have been a good idea on paper, but it turned into one of the worst episodes I’ve seen.
