Hopefully a nice (although unintentional, due to season 5 being mostly previous seasons's rejects) buildup to the grand finale - "Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings"

    No, not really.

    In fact I think she's getting more relaxed and developing a hint of "yeah-whatever" attitude.

  • Drinking beer for breakfast.
  • "Yeah, I wasn't really concentrating" when Fry points out she burnt his cheek.
  • "Enough emotions, this isn't a fat camp for gods sake. Although you wouldn't know it from looking
  • Punching the clerk with no hesitation when he refuse to help
And that's just in "Spanish Fry".

I actually like this new thing.

I dunno, your point is based strictly on one episode, where it was most prominent... yet, when you look at Bend her, Sting, Teenage mutant Leela's hurdles, ending of The Why of Fry, even Less than Hero (she agrees from the get-go to steal the gemerald, so she can free her parents, tells them her secret identity so they wouldn't be disappointed in her...), she gets pretty emotional.

Just my 0.2 $, though.

She's only human, of course she gets emotional. And Leela have always been an emotional character.

In "Bend Her" Bender was making a mockery out of her gender, so it's a bit understandable she's irritated with him. As are Amy.

"The Sting" was mostly a dream, a dream where Leela thought she were losing her mind. Those weird things would make everybody nerveous. The first part showed her controling her fear and emotions, just to prove they were a skilled crew.

TMLH. If I got the chance to relive a lost youth, I'd probably be just as excited. Though I wouldn't insisit on a cerfew [?], or say no to beer/tequila.

In "The Why Of Fry" she was just happy to see a good friend do something nice to her, after a rotten date with a heartless sleazeball.

"Less Than Hero", okay that one I can see. I'd expect Leela to come up with some kind of rescue plan instead. Although as obnoxious her parents were portrayed in that ep, I see why she didn't feel like taking risks.

What I'm saying is: she reacted emotional in all of them, but I don't see this as a new development, or signs of a stronger emotional drive, since it has always been part of her character. If anything I see what I mentioned above.

Just my .02 kroner.   wink

I was thinking more of her sobbing at the end of Bend Her, watching "Coilette: A Calculon's tale", that being a chick flick... As i said in my forst post in this topic, she DOES seem a tad bit more emotional than usual, but that is just due to the fact these episodes are rejects from seasons 3 & 4, so, while she seemed more independant and bossy in the first 4 seasons, these rejects unintentionally have focused more on her emotional life. When i first saw Futurama, i figured she was the strong one, both physically, and emotionally, the only adult person among them.

Besides, noone said that it was a new development of the character, she always had her emotional trips, it is just a teeny bit more accented in this final season.

just my 0.2 dinars (and maaan, you DON'T want to know how insignificant that is...)
