Over time Killed by Death has grown on me. Think its a really solid episode overall. I would keep that one out of the three. Bad Eggs is solid too, but less interesting to me. Think Killed by Death does more with the characters.
I would want to keep all of them, for different reasons.
-Some Assembly Required really sticks out in my memory for how entitled these boys felt to multiple girl's bodies for their Frankenstein friend. I haven't seen that episode in nearly a decade and that still made a strong impression on me.
-Bad Eggs is creepy, even if it's a little on-the-nose with its motherhood/pregnancy metaphor. Reminds me a bit of The Thing.
-Killed by Death is probably the scariest episode of the series, the most like an old-school horror movie, with the possible exception of "Helpless."
If I had to choose one to get rid of, I guess I'd choose Bad Eggs. But I like them all for different reasons.
Re: Season 2: That's one the reasons I hate "Bad Eggs." I watched Season 2 on the first FX Rerun, so "Bad Eggs" usually meant "Surprise/Innocence" (among the finest episodes of the season) would be delayed. Although, Cowboy Vampires were pretty fun. Or at least better than eurotrash in need of speech therapy.
I liked Killed by Death on my first watch (I've only seen it once anyway,) and I don't understand why it gets so much hate. I like the Nightmare on Elm Street reference, Buffy and Xander's bond, "Buffy's white knight," Cordelia telling Buffy that she created a monster so she can fight it since she can't fight illnesses, kid's drawings...
I don't care for Some Assembly Required. I dislike Bad Eggs, it wasn't fun to watch at all...
