What was your worst ever ending of Futurama? How would you have ended it differently? Did it ruin the whole show?

I thought the ending on 'Cryonic Woman' wasn't that great. It is kinda funny, but it had a wacky feel like it was just thrown in at the end because they didn't know what else to do feel. What made it worse is the fact that not only was it the ending for the ep, but also the ending for the entire production Season 2.

Also, I have to register my extreme hate for the ending of '300 Big Boys'. The whole Roseanne, what was that all about? it was total crap, and shouldn't have been there IMO, worst, ending, ever.

Second!

I really disliked the ending to 300 Big Boys from the first time I watched it. It sort of just ended. I was thinking 'Huh, is that it!?' It didn't really fit and didn't round off well at all. It seemd a bit rushed actually. And Roseanne should not have been in that ep full stop! I dont know what all that was about. The ep was good, but good have been made better if the ending was better  smile

I liked the ending to 300 Big Boys, but not the Roseanne bit. Not at all.

@Bobby King: And many people would disagree about Parasites Lost being bad.

The ending of Parasites Lost makes perfect sense. More than just cute, Fry's crude drawing of Leela with the holofonor shows that, while he may have seem to have given up on her, he still loves her, and the Fry - Leela thing can continue. That is obvious now, but it wasn't at the time of first airing.

Well, right off I can't think of an ending that really disapointed me.  Yet some people really didnt like the ending Jurrasic Bark.  Personally I liked it.

The ending for Jurassic Bark is the single greatest ending for any TV show ever in the history of the universe!........ever! Truely touching, beautiful.

Anyone who says otherwise, oh, you just wait! I can't think of any bad ending right now, but I think that the BEST is possibly I Roommate. The first time I saw it, was a genuine surprise, it's a great joke.

In the US, it wasn't!

Anyway, Cryonic Woman was definitely the worst end of the actual episode ever.

I felt upset at the ending of paradise lost, but then I felt enlightened. I was thinking "Keep the worms you fool!" but in reality, that would make Fry's conquest for Leela less meaningful.

The "Hell is other robots" ending I didnt like, I mean, it was what easy to get out of hell? Just climb out? I dont know...I cant think of anything worse at the moment.

Lucky you.

I feel sorry for anyone in the US that saw it on TV there, and doesn't know about that bit, but than buys Season 4 on DVD in the future and gets a nasty shock.

I'm also no fan of the way Cryonic Woman ended.  It's like they came up with all that just because they had no other way of explaining why Fry and Michelle thought they were in the year 4000.

The ending for The Deep South, is by no mean particullarly bad, I actualy find it pretty funny. But it is VERY strange, you wouldn;t see it coming.

I didn't like the ending to "War Is The H-word" because Bender blew up in the end! Also, it suggested that the world blew up. I don't like endings where something really bad happens yet, in the next episode, it's all back to normal. I especially hated the ending to "The Cryonic Woman". In the end when the Proffesor drops Fry out of the ship, I was expecting to hear a splash if he landed in the water, but he actually hits the ground! That would really kill him! I hate these bad note endings!

Oh yeah, also the ending to Insane in the Mainframe doesn't fit the episode, IMHO.  Sure, Bender pulling the human heart out of his chest closet was funny in a disgusting sort of way, but it still felt like an odd way to end the episode.

Sad ending != Bad Ending. Endings like Parasites lost and (I'm surprised nobody mentioned it) Time Keeps On Slippin' were very well done - the fact that you were saddened and genuinely cared for the characters in a cartoon registers it as a damn good ending.
I honestly can't think of a "bad" ending. Some weren't as good as others, but they all fit their episodes quite well. I wouldn't have expected a deep, meaningful ending in an episode like "Insane in the Mainframe", for example.

"The Cryonic Women". In fact the entire last act was encredible weak.

I even knew that before hand, why I wrote Cryogenic I have no idea.

It's Cryonic, not Cryogenic. Sorry, if I hadn't said it someone else would have. It's a paraody of The Bionic Women.

The ending with Roseanne is definitely the absolute worst ending.  Why have Roseanne in the show at all?  Who gave that idea?
As for actual story ending, I don't think any episode had a flat-out bad ending, but the ending of cryogenic woman definitely wasnt very strong.

I have to agree on the cryonic woman, apart from the trip to 4000 issue, it never sat well that fry learned his lesson and became a better person only to revert to the same situation as on new years eve 1999 chasing Michelle driving away with another guy.

Cryonic was the worst.  LTH was just too abrupt.  That was just the last few seconds, in Cryonic as Teral has rightly stated, the entire final act was weak.

Because, you know, Fry's never had something done to him that would kill a real person.

The VERY ending of Cryonic with Farnsworth dumping Fry out of the shop had it's charm.

What's this about 300 big boys' special US ending?

The Cryonic Women had a freakin' hilarious ending...ligthen up, people!  The episode itself is just a fun episode really, and that's what the ending was supposed to be. 

The worst is definetely Three Hundred Big Boys.  That episode just wasn't funny to begin with, but the ending was one of the worst scenes in it.  Luckily, that's the only truly bad ending I can think of, though Less then Hero did end abruptly.

Yeah, what's this ending you're talking about in 300BB?  I didn't see it with Roseanne and all.

I think the ending to My Three Suns was funny and not rushed!

I agree The Cryonic Woman was bad. Three Hundred Big Boys was silly too because I hate endings where they make fun of the episode. Its too Simpsons-esque.

I didn't like the end of The Farnsworth Parabox - I found it too light, considering the PE crew are now the gaurdians of the Universe.  And I was expecting some wrap-up on the whole Fry/Leela romantic subplot.
