i agree with allen. It was very misguided of them to rather let her shoot them then tell the truth. Obviously she would have unmasked them after she shot them and then realized what she had done and that would have been bad. Anyway, this is my new fave ep. i have already watched it 4 times and love it more with every viewing. The montage at the end was adorable and i desperatly want to know the name of that song so that i can burn a cd of it. oh, and i loved the Leela/Fry interaction, it filled my insides with hot chocolate and fuzzy kittens.

To Xenomorph: You can find it in Space Pilot 3000. I've never seen it, but been told it's there when Fry falls into the freezer.

I though it was an average with not too many laughs but more solid storyline. It was more episode that mirrored Luck of the Fryish in discovering the past of a main character.

Also did anyone else notice Zoidberg seemed to be MIA or am I wrong.

Why don't you just type out all the jokes that got cut? I vaguely recall something along the lines of "dumping toxic waste is a victimless crime--like punching someone in the nose in the dark!". That's pretty funny...is there anything else good?

That joke might have been cut because it was straight out of the simpsons.  (I think it was like, "stealing is a victimless crime, like punching someone in the dark").

D'oh. I knew I heard a joke like that SOMEWHERE. I just checked through the old Leela's Homeworld threads and didn't see that line posted anywhere...I guess I subconsciously mixed up homerjay's old posts and that Simpsons quote. Yeah I'm an idiot.

I thought it was a good ep, but I liked last week's better. For those wondering about Nibbler in Ep. 1, I snagged this screencap off an MPEG I had on my HD. I'll grab a clearer DVD cap later. Anyway, it's a quick shot just as Fry falls backward into the cryotube.

The song is called "Baby Love Child" on the "Made in USA" album by Pizzicato Five, an old Japanese pop group.

Aw, I can't wait to see it! I will when it has gotten to a special website from which I download my new Futurama episodes. That means sometime this week. Can someone please tell me if Fry and Leela got any closer to eachother this episode? Just with a Yes or No.

Liked it quite some, not top notch, not just medium. Still I think they should've kept this ep for like the 3rd last of the series or so. I sort of think they'll ignore her parents in future episodes (in the bunch of 3ACVX for sure). What's this with FOX changing the order all the time for no coherent reason anyway ?

Another geeky joke added, well done! (The "There is no way of knowing how long it will take. It can take an hour or a million years." DING!)

Good jokes included, like it   smile

"Like all of us, especially him!"

This episode was pretty good, but something about it didn't smack right.  The ending seemed a little forced, and Leela's parents' logic seemed a bit flawed.  Maybe it's because I didn't think Leela's past would end up that way, or maybe it's just too much new information.  I didn't like the bracelet.  Was that ever mentioned or seen before?  I know she wasn't wearing it in "Mother's Day".  My question is: what happened to Leela's ring (from "Space Pilot 3000")?  That would've had more connectivity to the entire series (and it's what I used in my fan fic).  Oh well, it was a pretty good story aside from certain, questionable plot holes and story jumps.

Edited to remove annying smilies.

Lots of great humour - I'm just so very disappointed that Leela is a hot, sexy mutant babe instead of a hot, sexy alien babe.

Good ep.  It could have been great if Leela didn't turn out to be a mutant.  I'm really disappointed with that.  I'm afraid to think where the story line will go from here.

That episode was craptacular....   Not quite as bad as "Luck of the Fry-rish", but mighty close...  Strange when an show involving mutants and aliens plays more on drama than comedy....

Well, I didn't find it all that funny. I agree with those who said Luck of the Fryrish was a better job balancing humor and drama. I did like this ep, mind you... and I'd like it even more if I was a Fry/Leela shipper, with how it fits in my analysis of that... anyway.
Her parents did seem pretty stupid, didn't they? What got me was they've been watching her her entire life, so how can it not be perfectly clear that she wants to know them more than anything else? She says it all the time! But no, they'd rather have her shoot them, that wouldn't be traumatic at all.  big grin
Uh... because lots of newbies who aren't me will ask it anyway... right... because I'm just generally out of it, actually... can someone expand on the earlier clues to this that were mentioned?
...I still use too meny ellipses... don't I...

Funny how tastes run around here...  I can't recall a single joke from "Luck of the Fry-rish", or "Leela's Homeworld", and yet for some strange reason, these episodes seem to be favorites around here...

Oh well, c'est la vie, eh?

Maybe that should tell you something.  Something along the lines of "cut back on the Nutrasweet and America's Funniest Home Injuries."

I think this was a great ep. Not the funniest, but then again you don't always need humor to make it a good ep.

Hmmm...it's hard to see in that picture, but does Leela's mother have an arm? If so, huge continuity error. This show has no forethought at all, what a bunch of crap.

It looks like the arm stops just before the hand, so you can't tell if it's a tenticle or not.

I think the real question here is how Leela didn't seem them standing right there and how come they didn't do anything to save her from the mutants the first time?

Eh.  Still a really good episode.  smile

First-time poster, but fan from day one.

SPOILERS


To paraphrase Lrrr of Omicron Persei 8:

"This new plot twist angers and confuses us.  Leela won our hearts as a single-eyed female alien, and a single-eyed female alien shall she remain!"

As far as I'm concerned, Leela's parents *are* mutants, so the sludge wouldn't change any of them, but they're *alien* mutants.  They just don't know it, because they themselves were left on Earth shortly after being born.

The quest for homeworld continues!

"A billion miles?"
