Roswell that Ends Well


I'm amazed at the diversity of favourites on here -it's a testament to how Futurama works on so many levels.

Spanish Fry is top 3.
The Why of Fry is top 3.
Space Pilot 3000 is top 3.
For me.
I am a fan of fry, but Bender is great.
There's just too many good ones... Roswell, Love and Rocket, Parabox, I, Roomate, they all have awesome qualities, probably one reason I watch at least 2 episodes every day.

I still love the first few episodes of the series. I always love going back and seeing the very first episodes ever made knowing everything that I do now.

I am starting to have a real appreciation for Love and Rocket. Like many episodes of Futurama there is a lot going on here. A "romance" between Bender and the rocket ship. Lucy Liu and her cameo. The trip to Romantic Corp and the engineered "Lovey Bears"
Really for me the best part of this episode is the selfless way Fry risks his life to save Leela. I think that this episode along with the Why of Fry, shows Fry's maturity and the depth of his character.
The ending is bittersweet, however. The candy hearts into the quasar and the beauty of the light, merged with the destruction of many planets and especially the cowboy world. Pretty sad stuff, that a careless act can have horrendous  consequences..

I think the destruction of the planets was supposed to be funny but ok.

It was supposed to be funny; it was tossed off kinda like "oh, and by the way, planets were destroyed;  The end".

I think the moral of the story is that you have to be very careful with your actions, because they have a ripple effect and can affect people you don't know

Yes... That story about a robot having a relationship with a spaceship that goes crazy and tries to kill them all has the moral "be careful what you do because there can be a ripple effect" because of the throwaway joke at the end about planets being destroyed...

I actually think the moral of the story is that candy hearts are toxic. WARN THE PEOPLE.

So the robot breaks up with the rocket ship and imperils the crew because he thought the time was right. This is not another instance of the effect of an ill timed thoughtless act?

I think Jezzem's point is that Futurama isn't a find-the-hidden-moral sort of show. The characters act the way they act because, simply put, it's funny. More power to you if you're getting some deep, life-affirming meaning from the episodes, but I don't think that's really what the writers intended.

I think it's the pieces of dark that sometimes surround the joke that make said joke stand out. If a show is constantly funny with no breaks to shoot a lesson in, it lessens the impact of the humor.
Just my opinion, but those last few lines were too structured to be throwaway.IMO

So what's the moral behind the line at the end where he says "It was? Hooray!"

And thanks Gorky, that's pretty much what I meant. There are some episodes that have some meaning or lesson or whatever but I just don't think that Love And Rocket is one of them.

The only episodes I can think of that involve characters sort-of-but-not-quite learning some quasi-moral lesson are some of the later Bender-centric ones. "A Pharaoh to Remember", "Godfellas", and (maybe kind of sort of) "Bend Her." I really don't think the writers were (or are) interested in tackling big moral dilemmas. I mean, they're able to generate a lot of emotion from the characters and their situations; I don't think they need to go to Very Special Episode territory.

Those are the episodes I was talking about. The ones that sorta have some kind of lesson or meaning but I can't ay that I think any of them have an actual moral to tell the viewer how to behave in their day to day lives like "Be careful of your actions."

There are others
A Big Piece of Garbage. Recycle now and have less problems later.
Lesser of Two Evils. Appearances can be deceiving.
Cyberhouse Rules. Different does not mean inferior
Leela's Homeworld. Don't shoot first and ask questions later. Leela almost lost her parents.

Most episodes are pure comedy, no moral intended, granted.But to me the better ones either advance the Fry/Leela relationship or cause us to think about something  other than how stupidly Fry acts.

I'd have to disagree with the Leela's Homeworld thing. It's an episode about Leela finding her parents and discovering that they are mutants and not aliens, not a story about safe firearm usage.

That they were her parents and not mutants that murdered then. If she hadn't listened to Fry, and put down the gun,she would have killed them.

Most of the victims in domestic gunplay are accidental and known by the shooter.
Just Like "Leela's Homeworld"

Given the immense emotional storyline that "Leela's Homeworld", I think it is actually shitting on the writers and the episode in general simplifying it down to that moral.

You, sir, are a bastard.

I assume you mean this as a sarcastic joke. Your comment came straight out of nowhere. You have no idea of my familiar status. Are you drunk or argumentative or drunk and argumentative?

You are not even responding to my argument, but rather spewing talking about how I argument, come back when you have a real response.

I call them like I see them.  You seem to be missing the entire point of that episode entirely.  So either you are just dumb or you are a bastard.

Pick a side.

Wait til we start debating the issue before you call me a bastard. Oh wait! Monkeys will fly out of your ass before I start having a sensible conversation with you.
If you feel so strongly about my points of view to make this personal, why don't you follow me around the PEEL board and chime in nonsensically as above.

Guys, your arguement is over a futurama episode.  A FUTURAMA EPISODE.  While Futurama is great & all, maybe we all could cool down a little & leave the insults & taunts to more important things.  Like making fun of TNUK?  I know this is something we all can enjoy together...  smile

Seriously, there's more important things to be at odds over.

I would vote "The Sting", "Roswell That Ends Well", and "The Farnsworth Parabox".

I like the Farnsworth Parabox because of the humour in it. I especially like the part where Professor Farnsworth meets Professor freaksworth, because of this:  Professor freaksworth- Dude, there's a universe in all of us
Farnsworth- Get a job!

Willster- The annoying rascal ya love to hate

I really think that the best Futurama Episode ever is the Star Trek Episode "Where no fan has gone before", where Mellvar kidnaps the original Star Trek cast.  Best line, I am Mellvar seer of the tapes!!  And i love how Sulu says Karate.  Also Fry say " You know Star Trek, 70 episodes, about thirty good ones."  Friggin Hilarious.
