Day 12 - An episode you’ve watched more than 5 times

There are quite a lot of contenders here. I comfort rewatch. There are definitely episodes of Whose Line is it Anyway? I could write about (the 'tapioca' one springs to mind, and now, tapioca will never not be funny --- hence my ecstaticness that it's used in a joke in Life on Mars as well.) I could mention any number of panel show episodes. The "Kids TV" episode of You Have Been Watching has been seen at least five times --- I showed it to my brother and my mother when I was down in Adelaide at one point, and laughed uproariously at Nick's reaction to Charlie/Mr Fuggles. I think I've seen 1.02 Life on Mars five times, but if I'm totally honest, I never actually comfort-rewatch LoM. Sometimes I'm compelled, and there are certain scenes I replay, but mostly canon-checking comes by way of transcript, and I've not seen many of the second series episodes all the way through more than twice. I really should. But I haven't.

The episode I think I'll put here is the Futurama episode 'The Farnsworth Parabox'. There are many, many Futurama episodes I could put, actually, but this one is one of my stand-out favourites. It mixes everything I adore about the show. The brilliant, brilliant humour (which gets quoted A LOT between Nick and myself --- from "now, now, perfectly symmetrical violence never solved anything," to "bite my glorious golden ass!," to "doooooooooooomed!"), Fry and Leela's romance, the awesome use of the SF element, the existential pondering, the genuine emotion, the fantastic animation, the outstanding voice acting --- especially by Billy West, who at one point is playing so many characters, I hope he gets paid by the hour. There isn't a single thing I don't adore about it. It is Futurama at its very, very best. This is, sadly, the episode the latest series of Futurama is about nine miles behind.
