So what's the consensus here?

Should I only watch S01-04 of Futurama? What about the movies? Is the Comedy Central era a skip or a whip?

      Basically this. The quality drops really hard after the first movie. If you still want more futurama, I’d google “best modern futurama episodes” and follow that, but it isn’t much.

    The Comedy Central seasons are fine, it's the Hulu ones you should skip.

      Thanks for the perspectives, anons. I wasn't even considering the new Hulu reboot since the writing staff for it looks like cancer.

    Watch what you want and then skip what you don't like.
    Are you really so used to being manipulated that you HAVE to have other people tell you what to do?
    For frick's sake...

      I've seen a lot of discourse over the years regarding Futurama and its many revivals. I wanted to see what other anons thought. Not a big deal.

        Don't bother with CC or hulu.

          Is the CC era a big downgrade?

            Bigly, there are some horrifically dated jokes and episodes it's just terrible overall.
            Hulu doesn't have that problem, but it runs into nostalgia bait and weak writing.
            Trust me, stick up to the 1st 2 films, anything after is up to you.
            I include the 2 films but you don't have to watch them, I kinda like them for what they tried to do but they are not very good.

    1 through 4 are better, 3 and 4 are peak imo, early CC is mostly okay but definitely feels like comedy central compared to the earlier seasons. As long as you keep that in mind it has a lot of good still. I think the movies are honestly kind of skippable. Not bad, I just find that while there are lots of great good parts, the slow parts of the movies reaaaalllly draaaaaaaag. It's neat how they're kind of connected though.

        If you find yourself really enjoying the characters and setting you should probably watch all of it anyway. You’ll definitely have to sit through some episodes you dislike, but and skip them if you ever do a rewatch. But outside of maybe one or two episodes across the whole thing I can’t think of many episodes that are actually offensively bad, although that depends on your sensitivities.

    Some of the CC episodes are fine - good even -, but there are some hardcore stinkers in there.
    The only season I'd say isn't worth giving a chance is the Hulu one, even putting aside that it has some shit episodes to top the worst of CC's run, every single episode has awful voicework.
    And it's coming from the lead role, Fry's VA Billy West just cannot do the voice any more.

      Yeah I've heard nothing but bad things about the Hulu run. The animation is also supposedly worse and I saw people complain how the voice actors are all old now and sound like shit especially the main character. Very bizarre decision to revive the show out of the blue like this, it seems like a very half-assed money grab.

      The first four seasons are classic. Some people argue they even top the Classic Simpsons (I’d agree in some areas)
      The movies are hit or miss. The best one is Bender’s Big Score mostly because of fan service and some decent jokes. The other 3 are kind of garbage but I mean you can watch them if you want. For reference Comedy Central split all 4 movies into episodes and aired them as Season 5
      Season 6+ is Comedy Central and it’s eh. I skipped out after the first 4 or so because I wasn’t feeling it but I never heard anyone call them outright bad
      The newest revival from last year I haven’t heard anyone talk about ever

      watch all of it Most episodes are good. Don't skip the Comedy Central ones.

      Well that settles it, I will torrent seasons 1-7 (I've also seen them listed as seasons 1-10). Depending on my enjoyment of S01-04, then I can definitely figure out what to do with the movies and the CC era, as I'll have them downloaded. Hulu era is a hard skip. Thanks again to all the anons who pitched in.

    S1-4 are in a completely different league of their own, and even then 4 started showing some signs of slipping. Everything after just doesn't feel right.

    There's no perfect watch of Futurama but there are perfect endings

    And Meanwhile is gonna be the perfect jumping off point even though it's from a somewhat inferior revival
