I'm of the opinion that kids should have pets which suit their ability to provide care for. Kids aren't all able to look after a dog, which is why so many young children end up with a rabbit, or a hamster, or something else that can easily be replaced if it dies without anybody knowing.

All kids should be exposed to dogs. Preferably by having somebody point out a dog and saying "see, that's what you get if you're not smart enough to be owned by a cat".

I had never owned a dog back in 2002 when Jurassic Bark first aired, but it still crushed my heart into little pieces.

It remains my favorite episode. Though having a dog now, I can't watch it without being near him so I can hug him and sob profusely for the following hour.

I found JB absolutely heart-wrenching the first time I saw it. It made me feel so guilty for not spending enough time with my dogs, and I had to hold them and cry for a long time afterwards.

Now, though, after seeing it many times, the effect has worn off to a certain extent. It's still extremely touching and makes me tear up, but at least I don't outright sob every time I watch it.

Yeah, I do the same with my cat if she's around when that ep airs.  smile

As Anna says, it's lost a bit of its initial impact for me.  The Sting, on the other hand, still chokes me up good...

Am I the only person who has never even got the slightest bit upset at "The Sting"? I found the end of BBS
to be way more touching.

I'm sure you're not the only one Danny, but I had the opposite experience of what you had. I saw the reveal at the end of BBS coming, and while it was sweet, it came nowhere near to matching the impact of "The Sting," in my opinion.

Like Tachyon said, "The Sting" still makes me choke up. The part when Fry tells Leela he loves her and says, "Just wake up, Leela. Please. Just wake up," has never lost any of its effect on me.

I've said it before, but I seem to be the complete opposite of most others here when it comes to seeing plot twists coming. I saw BBS and The Sting coming, but not Yo Leela Leela or Lrreconcilable Ndndifferences.

But to continue the conversation, I've never got very emotional at a Futurama episode. The closest I got was probably either Time Keeps on Slippin' or Lethal Inspection.

To be honest, "The Sting" has never fazed me even slightly. Yeah, it's sweet and all but it just doesn't do it for me.

I like JB ,even if I didn't have a dog (I'm a cat person and I lost mine when I was little) I think it's sad and all ,but I can't stand when people ONLY talks about that episode,that's why even if is really well written I don't think that is the greatest thing ever.

In change, "The Luck of the Fryirish" makes me cry like a baby everytime I see it and I don't have siblings,but yeah I feel sad for Fry.

And other episodes that I really like personally are: Neutopia (I don't care if 90% of the people hates it,it's pretty cool),Zapp Dingbat (Classic Futurama,imo),Brannigan Begin Again (I can see it 1000 times and I never get tired  big grin ) and Insane in Mainframe (was my first Futurama episode,so yeah has a special spot in my heart).

I know,I have weird tastes.

Other than Neutopia, ( mad ) I can't imagine many people disagreeing with those choices. They're generally well-liked by the citizens of PEEL.

I think that other than UrL, not too many people will give you a hard time about liking even Neutopia.

Neutopia's only real failings for me are the weak and contrived jokes based on gender stereotyping, and the reliance on an archaic, outdated trope ("battle of the sexes").

Many people overlook these failings entirely, and simply enjoy the episode. There are a few episodes like this, that have a single minor flaw which ruins it for a few people (eg: UrL and Neutopia, Inquisitor Hein and Mobius Dick. Me and The Six Million Dollar Mon). But overall, the fandom won't give you a hard time in general about liking episodes in particular.

Unless maybe it's the Holiday Spectacular, The Cryonic Woman, Yo Leela Leela, or one of the handful with a really heavy-handed or hamfisted "message". Then you might run into more than one person disagreeing with you at once.

I agree somewhat about JB, being a fellow cat person - TLoTF resonates with me at least as much, and episodes like Time Keeps On Skipping have a deeper emotional core (IMO), so it's kind of odd that this is the episode that the entire universe has agreed upon as the most moving.

Still, it's at least somewhat awesome. I won't say it's not one of the greats.

I think it's the long montage at the end with a dog waiting to it's owner. It's showing Seymor getting old lonely and music is affective and intense. And the very end with him closing eyes is suddle and intriguing.

But Lethal Inspection is better imo, because it's overall excellent and so funny episode.
I might even say it's one of my favorite episodes, but not quite.

Even if I like Neutopia a lot, I can agree when someone says that could be better (they *can you blame the writters or CC because the promos* sell you as a gender bender episode and then they have you waiting for that part) and has troubles with characterizations then ,yes I can say that is bit dissapointing.

Anyways was a good experiment,at least they tried something different talking about character designs and for someone who isn't a huge Futurama can be an enjoyable episode, isn't trash either,was just a wasted opportunity.

By the way,I understand when you have an episode that you can't stand even if you try to re-watch the episode, I have the same problem with Butterjunk Effect.Doesn't matter how many time I see it , I still thinking that it's bad and the Butterfly!Fry is the stupidiest thing ever and that wasn't and ending, but again is just my opinion.

Also I don't like Bender's Game (the humor there isn't my style ) but at least I admit that Roberto is the only reason of why I would see it.

And weird I have no problems with YLL, CW or Holiday Spectacular, I know these aren't perfect episodes but if an afternoon after a long day of school I'm tired and bored well, I can easily sit and see these if are on TV.

And I totally agree with Quantum Neutrino Field about JB, music is a really important element in Futurama,and is really well used in that episode.

My problems with Neutopia are more do with the fact that they rush the ending really badly, and don't come up with a resolution that's even remotely clever or plausible. I'm also not a fan of how the character's regular personalities are compromised for the sake of cheap gender-war jokes.

I could go on, but there's a more suitable thread for that.

Oh yeah. I forgot about the "magic" ending. That is pretty lame.

I suppose I should watch it again, keeping an eye out for the bits I liked versus the bits I really disliked, and see if my opinion changes.

I know I'm in the minority on this, but "The Luck of the Fryrish" has never really had any impact on me. Maybe it's because I have no siblings, but I've watched it many times and have never gotten even slightly teary or emotional.

"Neutopia" is the only episode I really cannot stand; I didn't even want to finish watching it. I agree with everything UrL said about it; I've never found the battle of the sexes funny at all and especially hated the characters' changes in personality. I've made myself see it multiple times to try and find something I like about it, but I failed to find anything.

I know almost everyone here disagrees with me on this, but I actually really like "That's Lobstertainment." For some reason, I've always found it very charming and funny, even though it's nowhere near being one of my favorites.

I cannot single out a particular episode as my personal favourite, the top dozen episodes are all very close to each other, and which one is my choice for "best" depends on what I am in the mood for on that day.  My top dozen episodes, in chronological order:

1ACV12 When Aliens Attack
2ACV15 The Problem with Popplers
2ACV17 War Is the H-Word
3ACV02 Parasites Lost
3ACV04 The Luck of the Fryish
3ACV19 Roswell That Ends Well
3ACV20 Godfellas
4ACV11 Where No Fan Has Gone Before
4ACV15 The Farnsworth Parabox
6ACV07 The Late Philip J. Fry
6ACV10 The Prisoner of Benda
7ACV08 Fun On a Bun

There are actually probably another dozen episodes I would consider to be almost as good as these ones, but then the list would be too long.

Why am I being singled out here? Plenty of people hate TFHS! My dislike for Neutopia is a bit more... iconic.
