What a great episode! I just finished watching it for the first time. This episode is wonderful. I loved the twist at the end and the subtle jokes. Also, it's hard to be serious and funny at the same time and they pulled it off beautifully with this episode. Truly a classic in my view!

BTW, they should've played Porteris' Wandering Star as the ending song. Fits the scene very well! Listen to the song and tell me what you think!  smile

See the thread Thoughts on [3acv04] "The Luck of the Fryrish" for most answers to your questions.

Yes, it makes sense that they played a song from the Breakfast Club soundtrack, but just listen to Wandering Star! The lyrics soooo fits the ending of Luck of the Fryish.

I really like the song but hey, that's definitley not the kind of music for a comedy-show like Futurama. I really like Portishead, but it's far too depressive.

Not very perfect this episode but nice.

Although many of you will know, for the unknowing:

Not just Fry has his middle-name starting with 'J', but also Bart, Homer and Grandpa from the Simpsons

Translated from a German Simpsons FAQ:

| Q: What does the "J" in Homer J. and Bart
|    J. Simpson stand for?
|
| A: Matt Groening says that Homer's and Abraham's
|    (Grandpa) middle-initital 'J'is a dedicated
|    to Rocky and Bullwinkle (Rocket J. Squirrel and
|    Bullwinkle J. Moose), whose initiales in turn are
|    dedicated to their creator Jay Ward.
|    Episode AABF02 tells that "J" actually stands for "Jay".


well, your decision what is better and if it applies to Fry  wink

I'd have to go with Matt Groening's explaination.  Makes sense, don't it?  Besides, Matt seems to have a thing for naming characters after people.  Like Fry, who was named for Phil Hartman.

He said, "Shut up, Kif."  Homer, Bart, and Fry, all have the middle initial J, for old-school animator Jay Ward, who's two most famous characters, Rocky and Bullwinkle, also had J as their middle initial.

Zoidy, Lady Madge (Madonna) was in 'The Breakfast Club' as the drummer. How can you like it? Courses for horses I guess. Madonna is better on her own.
That ep. is brilliant though, ain't it?
I'm gonna shut up now,
