Hot Take: Gene might have fewer episodes, but he has some of the best ones

  1. Gene is pretty great and I agree his episodes are underrated but he also has my least favorite episode of all time - Mommy Boy.

  2. Definitely my least favorite episode. It was super weird but it kinda shows a theme of Freud's theories and Im not certain of that but that was the first thing I thought of the first time (also only time) I watched it.

  3. I hate that single episode so much that it makes me hate Gene. I don’t think he can be redeemed in my eyes. Definitely a black eye on the show.

  4. Huh, I think of Spaghetti Western and Meatballs and Electric Love as way more Louise-focused than Gene-focused. I love Gene but I find his episodes hit and miss. I did love OT-The Outside Toilet (it has "Wipe that baby off your face!" which I contend is the best line ever spoken) and Work Hard or Die Trying Girl, and the cheerleader one was also fantastic. Into the Lazer-inth is also a fave. And he has many where I'm not in love with them, but they're still pretty dang good, like the Blob and the dumb skating one (I don't know why it makes me laugh, but Eugene Mirman singing Alone gets me every time). But he also has some of my least favorites--Beefsquatch, the sleep-over one, the one where he was obnoxious about Linda not doing spa night. He's such a great character, but sometimes the writers of his episodes seem to play on his more obnoxious traits rather than his charms.

  5. Gene episodes are so great. I love when the creators are expanding Gene more than just witty one liners (and his relationship with Linda).

  6. Work Hard or Die Trying Girl and Stand By Gene are two of my favorite episodes even though I wouldn’t consider Gene my favorite belcher. So- I agree! He’s got a lot of good ones. Outside Toilet also rules

  7. That's actually a very unpopular opinion. Most people consider the Gene-centric episodes overall to be the weakest and most frustrating episodes.
