In response to Slurm's post, some aspects of the show would be changed if L&F got together.  But other shows have been able to pull serious relationships off and still make it funny.(I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but bear with me.)  Look at Groenings OTHER show.  We have Marge and Homer as a perfect example of two people committed to one another.  They obviously love each other, but their relationship has almost always served the purpose of being funny.  They're completely mis-mathced, Marge being smart and responsible.  Homer being...well, stupid and childish.  Hmmm...now who in Futurama do these two sound like?  See my point?  Even if Leela and Fry did become a couple, it won't destroy the comedy aspect.  And what do you have against two people who are complete opposites in a relationship?  Maybe our society's just so sex-crazed we can't accept the fact that not everyone's a bedhopper like sluttly, little, Amy!!!!!!!  mad   Okay, I'm sorry.  I was lashing out badly at an innocent bystander like Miss Mary Magdelene(Ooh!  Biblical insults!).  Sorry to all you Amyholics out there!  She's not a bedhooper, she's liberated.  wink   But this romantic needs to quit while she's ahead...  love

Yeah, but the thing is, The Simpsons is about a family, with a husband and wife who love each other. And you mentioned King of Queens earlier--actually a pretty good show, but the show is specifically about a married couple. Futurama is about a loveable idiot who gets sent to the future and hangs out with his hilarious robot/alien/mutant/jamaican friends. Romance might change the show too much.

But whatever. If the writers want to go there, I'm sure they could make it work.

I don't think time keeps on slipping had too much romance... But I think that more romance as you proposed (getting them together) would slow down the pace of futurama and remove the flirting and trying of fry, which is part of what makes him funny.
And overall, i got to say that season 3 was a little overromanced for me ... at least the episodes we got to see.

realistically, if they got together there would be no more romance...

How so?  As in, once they were a couple we wouldn't have anymore developing interplay?  Some elements would still be there(i.e. Quotes along the line of my siggy) but most people would agree that it'd be a lot less annoying than having Fry keep pining for her and her mercilessly rejecting him.  At least, that's my opinion.

Foxxy, this topic is over 4 years old and your post wasn't even on topic.  Be reasonable.

But to be on topic, I think it's a very good episode, mostly for the comedy when time jumps around.

i love the episode.....definitely one of my favourites.......i don't think it's too emotional, it's just sad....

Just think, if Leela hadn't let Fry take the ship back to a safe distance, she would've seen the note in the sky

sod's law or what????

I got mad at Leela for ignorant. Also, the whistle ending does me in. But still, I can't not like Futurama. It was a good episode.

Frasier actually pulled off the coming together of two main characters incredibly well. Before Miles and Daphne got together, the comedy was all about miles trying to get Daphne. Afterwards it simply shifted to comedy about them as a couple, it didn't detract from the show at all, it just changed it. If  Futurama were to do something like this it would be truly unique among cartoons. Too be honest, it already has more of a linear storyline underpinning the entire series than most cartoons, where time doesn't flow and everthing is back to normal at the end of every episode,(they even reject this mechanism themselves at the end of 'when aliens attack'). Futurama DOES of course do this to some degree, and this is needed to keep it funny and watchable, but watch all the episodes in chronological (production series) order and it makes a lot more sense. It has elements of a drama series and other 'true' live-action sitcoms about it that you just don't get from other cartoons.

Hurrah! Gerds and neekery. Whoops.

Back to subject, I thought it was a great episode! Some seriously good jokes and Ethan "Bubblegum" Tate was great, but the ending is so damn sad that I have only watched it a few times.

Hehehehe. You had to be there though...
