One of the best Futurama episodes.

This was, without a doubt, the episode where "Futurama" turned the corner.  I recently saw it for the first time in quite some time (thankx to the DVD box set) and I loved it even more than before.  This episode is an example of what animation is truly capable of through great storytelling, pacing, and real emotion.

Now with that sappy stuff out of the way...Hello, little man.  I will DESTROY YOU!

same, i loved the ending. Up until then, i really didnt think Futurama could get that emotional. I think that The Luck of the Fryrish was really the first touching episode of Futurama in a long line Sting, Why of Fry, Jurassic Bark, TDHAIPT. I love this episode!

i did grow upin the eighties and that part was really radical. nothing like a new pair of parachute pants. but it really was a sweet touching ep.

Anyway, it's got to be my favorite episode. Futurama seems to differ from most other animated sitcoms in that it has episodes that are truly meant to be serious. I mean, I guess this isn't to say that the scene with Fry sitting by his nephew's opened grave and crying isn't meant to be a bit ironic, but the episode is still basically serious. This is true for other episodes too, I know, but yeah.
Anyway, I've always been emotionally moved by this episode. But yeah, I saw it again tonight, so it's cool

^That's why it got cancelled. There weren't enough people to appreciate things like that. (Plus, the reason we all know it got cancelled. FOX.)

This episode is what made me love futurama even more.  It was smart, touching, and funny.

WHAT THE HELL! What was so emotional about this episode? I usually like these eps (liked Jurrasic Bark and The Sting) but this one had no emotional part and no jokes.. final grade.. C

it seems it was a little over the top for me... i mean... it had subtle qualities with the break dancing... and the part where he loses the dollar... but in the end... it's called futurama... most people care about what happened in the future, not something in the past that basically has no bearing on the other episodes

au contrare, cujoe, it affects everything that happens afterward, 'cause Fry changes from finding he was loved and never even knew it.

I totally agree with passerby. Luck of the Fryrish is my favorite episode, because of the facts we get to know about Fry and his family. Hardly giving him attention, but deep inside loving him.
Also I can think that the plot of this episode was just the start of a new plotline of episodes which should have come later.
Perhaps something along the lines of Professor Farnsworth ancestors, or that he/Fry are the real owners of Mars, or that the son of P.J.Fry Junior as frozen himself to search his uncle...

just some ideas of me. Groening, DXC and their writers were much more creative than me though.

Futurama isn't just about the future, it's about the characters, and this episode is one of the great character building episodes that Futurama produced.

Aww... U know, I really don't have a brother, but if I did, this episode would really make me cry even harder. I especially LOVE the "Tounge Luck" gag. and the "To hell with your spoiled baby! I need those shoes!" LOL

Damn it, this episode is definitely in my top 10.

The beginning was pretty funny, and I love how the episode slowly got better and better as it went on. The Flashback scenes were great, and that ending. Oh, my god that ending! It's probably the only TV Show scene that made me cry, and chokes me up every time. It was beautifully done for Futurama's first time, and no ending ever had the effect that this one gave to me.

10/10

This is probably my favorite 3ACV episode. I shed a tear at the end, to be honest. This episode was absolutely perfect.

9/10

Fantastic episode. The ending was beautiful, excellently done. Any glimpses into Fry's past life are great, and this one was wonderfully timed. I was completely absorbed in the episode the first time I watched it, so much so that I didn't even notice how it made me feel until the end. I do wish Yancy had been a bit kinder to Fry when they had time together...his family really didn't miss him, it seemed. It makes sense that Yancy would name his son after Fry, but I think his emotions were a bit overdone.
