Well as long as you realize that all Futurama episodes are great in their own way. Sorry if I seemed too harsh.

Parasites Lost was more touching than funny, more dramatic than comedic.  The Sting was a little trippy and sort of hard-edged funny, which overshadowed the sweetness/bittersweetness of the ending for me.  You know, before I joined this message board, I thought surely there was general consensus about which episodes were stronger than others, especially among people who all love Futurama enough to join a message board.  I am proven wrong!

The Sting is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better! I love that episode. But You must be new to Futurama, cause that's nothing to The Sting or Jirassic Bark.

Well Im new to the Futurama message boards, but certianly not to Futurama.  I started posting here so I could fully realize there were people out there who are more into futurama than I am.  Jurassic Bark, Parasites Lost, Luck of the Fryish, The Sting, I'm sure there are more I can't remember right now as I pretend to write my paper, are all the sappy ones.  I guess I just haven't seen The Sting enough to get over the trippiness of it.  Personally my fav of the bittersweet/drama/touching ones is Luck of the Fryish.  With the Breakfast Club song at the end!?!?  I was certainly tearing up.  But then I cried in Lilo and Stitch.

Wanna here a crap story about Lilo and Stitch? My friend's aunt went to see to asure her mom if it was "parental" enough. And her Aunt said it was terrible, it was stupid, and my friend was too young to see it. Such bull. Some people wouldn't know a good movie if it bit them in the ass.

I love Lilo and Stitch!!! It single-handedly kept me from dismissing Disney forever.  That's a wack story Spacedal11.  To confess I was indeed bawling by the end of it.  When Stitch is like... Ohanu.. mean.. family... means no one gets left behind... woooo, I LOST it.  Just bawling.  soooooooo cute.  like Bender.  le sigh.   smile

Lilo and Stitch is my favorite animated movie. I saw it in the theater 6 times and put little stitch stickers on my computer as well as the back of my mobile phone. And i wept like a baby several times. And the show is one of the few movie-turned-tv shows that is actually worth watching.

I respect that, Venus.  I also wept on a repeated viewing, embarrasingly enough on a plane crossing the Atlantic, so for the next eight hours all the people around me knew that I was a total baby.   smile  I don't know if I could stay what my favorite animated movie is...... are we counting sotp motion?

you want embarrassing crying? I'll give you embarrassing crying: me watching Titanic. I saw it 7 times in the theater and cried Every Single Time. The woman siting next to me during my 7th viewing thought i was gonna hyperventilate. But to save a shred of my dignity i feel i must point out that i was mostly crying over all the people dying horribly rather than at the love story, although it did make me cry as well.

Venus, how could you! I used to think you were cool...   tongue

Yes. But that didn't make me sad, it made me laugh. But I enjoyed it for the same reason I enjoyed Planet of the Apes... interesting concept, hilarious execution ('cept POTA didn't have an anonying love story getting in the way of my apreciation of neat stuff).

EDIT: That'd be the original POTA... don't see the remake... it bites more than a pit full of crocodiles.

People falling to their deaths almost made the three hours of tripe worth watching. Plus everyone else was seeing it... I didn't want to be left out of the loop.

I didn't catch PotA and I don't think I will.

no! the only laughing on the inside that i did was at this part:

Rose: I'll never let go Jack, i'll never let go!
She then prys his cold dead hands off of hers and let's go. Now that was funny.

But then it wouldn't have been so romantically tragic when he fell down into the deep dark ocean, dead.  i cried at titanic too, hating it all the while.  i also cried at finding nemo.  much better movie.

I remember the one adn only time I saw "Titanic". At the end I burst out loud "Why did she drop the diamond into the ocean? That piece is worth a fortune". My sister turned towards me and said: "Haven't you learned anything from this movie?" "Apparently not" I said, and she just shook her head in disbelief.

But returning to our usual programming: "Parasites Lost" still rank as one of the best episodes. Nice doses of shippy scenes, spoofs and funny jokes. I give it an A+ (and that's the first time I use the A-scale).

Couldn't find the original "thoughts on" thread. Weird.

Quite understandable, this is the original "Thoughts on..."-thread.  wink Radjis just beat mArc to the punch back then, and forgot the "Thoughts on..."-part.

Did we watch the same episode? Or is there another "The Sting" out there?

"The Sting" was indeed very bad. Sorry.   frown

Anyway, upon second viewing, "Parasites Lost" was an okay episode. I guess I was looking too harsly. You know, the episode being so shippy and all  wink

The Sting rules! TDHAIPT is overrated!

Well now, I feel more punches coming...
In more related aspects, Parasites Lost is a great episode. It's one of the reasons Season 3 rules so much.

I like that it's touching, but it doesn't really have that I'm-gonna-make-the-audience-cry-now moments like the end of Jurassic Bark and Leela's Homeworld.  Maybe the part with fry playing the holophoner, but i felt like the sweetness was sprinkled throughout the episode.

Both The Sting and Parasites Lost are in my top 5. I didn't think there was anyone out there who didn't love The Sting. I don't think Parasites Lost was gross at all. You must have a weak stomach. I loved that it made 'potty' jokes while being touching at the same time. I don't even know if touching is the right word. It just left me with this feeling of "wow, I want a boyfriend". I guess its good for chicks that like mild toilet humor.

I cried when I went to go see that movie. Only cause everyone made me and I was fighting not to. And when that Celin Dion song came on I had to leave...to go to the bathroom I had been crying so hard. When I was little Junamgi (i don't know how to spell it) freaked the crap out of me! NOw I watch it and laugh. I don't think I've ever cried in a movie I might of gottin weepy in Spirit: Stallion of the Cimeron. I have gotten scared in a lot of movies, Scream 2, Chuckie, The Exercisit, 1.5 seconds of Acrachniaphobia, Birds, Letters from a Killer. And whats funny, every movie execpt that last one I only saw like five minutes of it!

  laff But I love suspense horror. Like 1st to Die or Night Scream. I can't stand horror/horror. I'm out before the beginning credits role. I'm done now...

I'd put both 'Parasites Lost' and The Sting' in my top 5 list of episodes. The Sting made for a particularly good episode, both because of the touching storyline and the jokes.

Spacedal11, when you cried at Celine Dion was it because of her crimes against music?

Or were you crying with laughter maybe?

how can you hate something just because it's popular? You should judge it on it's actual content, not by other peoples opinions on it.

He does have a point though. When you don't like an episode and everyone else does for some reason, it's infuriating because you can't understand why.

Exactly. I think the episode is average, but the fact that everyone loves it and claims it as the best episode gets me angry, so that draws me to dislike the episode more. But, the episode itself matters, and it just was average. Nothing to go crazy about in my eyes.
