If you could Change One Thing in Futurama what would it be? (aside from it being cancelled)  I would have more Zoidberg Episodes (like Why must i be in love with a Crustation? where Zoidberg is the main Character)

I dunno, the only thing that I can think of is perhaps actually showing the deliveries, instead of just mentioning them or showing the crew coming back from them.  It would be a good way to see lots of innerestin new places. That isn't a big thing, I would be much more likely to leave the show the way it is.

Neil McNeil, the episode that you are referring to is titled "Why Must I be a Crustacean in Love?". Though, an episode with the name you used could be quite interesting...

I would've had AMy graduate from Mars U. and make her Full time engineer and have her go more on missions with Fry, Leela and Bender.

I would give the Fry/Leela storyline a more definative ending. I would have liked to have actually see them together for an ep or two.

The Unofficial PEEL Faq by PEEL's own aslate! I think i speak for all experienced PEELers when i say: READ THE ENTIRE THING BEFORE MAKING MORE POSTS!

tom123, i have pointed this out to you at least twice, yet i still do not believe you have read it. let me quote:

Spamming? Spam? Whatís that?
On message boards it refers to posts with no real value, i.e. they donít contribute to the topic at hand in a constructive way. Sure, a quick off-topic remark and bad pun is appreciated now and then, but posting "Me 2" every time another member have made a post isnít. Spam includes: "Me too", "I agree", constant posts of "He is/isn't right", just quoting another PEELer, posting exactly the same as another PEELer, posting something of no value to a thread. Also donít double-post, use the edit button instead.
you have posted 59 messages to date, in the 3 days you've been here. that's 20 posts a day! and all in just the general discussion board! i would estimate that about half of those posts have been spam.

belive me, i'm usually friendly to new users, but you just don't seem to get the message! if you don't stop, i am going to contact moderators and ask that you be punished appropriately.


now, back on topic: i would have added more of the amy/kif relationship, but i would have changed kif's personality a bit. in "where the buggalo roam", he just seemed too pathetic, and too scared to actually do anything romantic with amy. however, in "kif gets knocked up a notch", he was too bold. he should have been right in between.

Yes, I would have liked to have seen Kif being a lot more like he was in 'Love's Labours Lost in Space'.

More resolution on the Fry/Leela relationship would have been nice. Some more coverage on the Robot Mafia would have been nice.

Not even necessary. I've driven out people nobody wants from message boards before. All it takes is extreme cruelty. Just swear at them after every post they make, and they will go away. This must be a group effort this time though, considering this is such a large and active board.

And I have to say the reason the whole love conflict pissed me off is because of mainly what it did to the show. All the characters started acting different, the whole thing was overdone, everyone got nicer, blah blah blah. It was so obvious Leela wanted Fry but she refused to accept it because she felt she could "do better". What the hell could be better than a guy who honestly loves you for who you are? Fucking christ. It made Leela look like an evil conniving bitch, and it somehow made Fry look normal, certainly not the innocently stupid Fry we all came to know and love. Damnit, I made myself mad now. I'm going to go piss all over my neighbor's car.

I change Kif in "300 Big Boys" from the pathetic lapdog he was portrayed as in that episode to the slightly shy and exasperated XO we saw in "Amazon Women In The Mood".

Similarly with Leela's parents, take away a layer of patheticness or two, most notably in "Less Than Hero".

I'd have loosened up the dialogue a bit. I can understand having to play up to the audience but sometimes I felt the dialogue in Futurama to be a bit too obvious in pining for laughs.

Bold? Outgoing? Something like that?

Anyway, I would like to see more relationships between the characters, not necessarily Fry/Leela, or even loving relationships, but kind of like the Hermes/Zoidberg relationship, that's hilarious. Maybe more Fry/Bender stories, they play off each other very well.

Personally, I'd like to see a few more war-related episodes, some more death or drama of some kind, only to be played off with the usual blast of comedy that is Futurama in general.

Or maybe atleast something that would pair up an odd couple, like Leela and Zoidberg, or Amy and Bender (as a robot).

I think one of the reasons I Second That Emotion was one of my favorites was because we got to see Bender and Leela reacting to each other and arguing and whatnot. A rare view, and might I say it was priceless.

TheLampIncident actually does make a valid point about the whole Fry/Leela thing.  I don't necessarily agree that it's a bad thing, I just think that Leela did seem unusually thick-headed in some of these episodes.  On another note, I would have liked to see Kif have a bit more hostility towards Zapp, and maybe make Zoidberg a little less pathetic.

Stretch the running time of an episode to 50mins and some episodes with alot more of Morbo and Linda featuring, maybe exploring there backgrounds.

So Love's Labour's Lost in Space and Amazon Women in the Mood are what? Non-existent?  He as at least as much focus in those two episodes (particularly the first) than Hermes does in HHRHGB. Get out of the Angry Dome and watch those episodes.

Edit: Not to mention BRANNIGAN Begin Again... which I didn't...

Yes, more relationships between the members of the crew who seemed to have never interacted throughout the entire four years they worked together.

And I think Hermes could have been a more likeable character.

I wouldn't want to see a definative end to the Fry/Leela love conflict. Characters getting what they want just isn't funny, leave that kind of happy fulfilment crap to Friends.

More views of other planets and other Earthican nations.
More depth to the backstories of races such as the Neptunians, Omicronians, Amphibiosians etc.
More deliveries.
More Zapp.
More Morbo.
More consstency in te Kif/amy relationship.
More crazy Farnsworth inventions.

Scratch what I said before, if I could change one thing, and one thing only, I would give Kif's race a cooler name than Amphibiosians. Seriously the Futurama staff can do better than that.
