I really like Homer as a character, but hard to say if he is my absolute favorite.
And also I really can't name one particular episode as my favorite, after seeing them all multiple times.
I do like the way the series has evolved from the first episode to the latest season, but still I guess I'd have to go looking
for the best episode in some of the first seasons.
Futurama ain't bad, but not as good as the Simpsons.
