Probably just bigger accent on continuing storylines and have some characters acting less childishly (I mean just characters like Kif, etc. those who weren´t supposed acting that from the begginning).
And like I said on previous threads - some relationship devolepment or even new offsprings would be nice.

We don't know that for sure. It was left open-ended. In my universe they are together, but i don't know what the writers would do.

If they really are together, I dont think their relationship would last very long. Their personalities are so different, there would be a nasty clash; Leela would get fed up with Fry's stupidity and slobbish behaviour, and Fry would soon tire of Leela's bossiness and short temper. But I could be very wrong.

I think if Futurama came back, Leela and Fry would instantly break up for the simple reason that one of the hooks of the show was Fry's struggle to get Leela to go out with him. And with the season ending so unfortunately, they (being the writers) wanted to make sure that Fry did score. However if the show came back, having Fry and Leela as a couple produces less storylines than them being seperate. Also, more strong Bender... Now turn around...

As for my favorite question about return of Kif´s tadpoles, I know that there are as some troubles. Firstly, to indruduce them to the „cast“ would probably mean to create some silly way for overcome those 20 years which they are supposed to growing up in swamps ( „chronitons“ or something like that). Secondly, it would be hard to concentrate on them as specific characters since there is so much of them (like in Simpsons Apu´s octuples). Anyway I would realy like to see   various individualitis among them and having Leela wants one or more as her own.
I´am pissed that even in fanfictions they are pretty ignored, except „Delicious surprise“ and „Universe of Malice“(but in latter just that they were killed by Planet eater).

I think Kif's tadpoles are ignored mostly for two reasons:

One - Some countries may not have even seen the episode yet on TV.

Two - Because it will be 20/30 years until they come out of the pond.

However I see where you are coming from. It would be the equivalent of giving birth to a baby and then ignoring the fact.

I think that Chris had reacted primary to my posts - just for avoiding confusion.

I agree with the points Rhodan made in his first post. Also, I think the writers have written themselves into a corner now (that is, if they ever make more episodes) by putting so much emphasis on the Fry/Leela relationship that they're gonna have to do something about it, because if they don't, it's just gonna be endless, repetetive episodes about Fry trying to bag Leela, and that would just be heinously dull. However, getting Fry and Leela together also seems to be an unpopular option because, apparently, that gives the writers less storylines. So in a sense, 'shippyness' may have done as much harm for Futurama as it has good.

Also, I would like to see more development of all the main characters. The reason being that I don't want to see characters get to the point of being 'Johnny One-Joke' and the show just becoming lazily formulaic. There's only so many times I can laugh at the fact that Zoidberg is poor or Hermes is a druggie, and they'd need to have more strings added to their bow to avoid the danger of becoming a pastiche of themselves.

i belive that the leela fry thing could just be a trick to get them together for the big brain this becouse thats what nippler seid ant it and plus even if they did try to make more episodes it would be a waste becouse we already now whats going to happen nexted if they do make more ep oh well carry on

I agree that if new episodes were produced, there would have to be some sort of relationship between Leela and Fry (as hinted in many Season 4 episodes). But it shouldnt last long. It would be funny if this long-awaited romance lasted only one episode with the two comming to blows. It'd be a nice twist and a good one to extend the series's romance parts.

But mostly i believe that the show should basically just continue where it left off. It shouldnt really have a huge triumphant return, only for the crew to come back to TV and continie doing what they do best...Deliver packages, have sex with aliens, and enjoy the 31st century...

Personally I think there wouldn't be a corner for writers if The Why of Fry was the finale and The Devil's Hands never existed. It's much more suiting because The Devil's Hands is not as good as episode as it could have been. Instead of The Devil's Hands (which would be half way in the season), I'd put an Anthology Of Interest there.

they have gotten together, albeit in What If machine episodes and Time Skips but you can't deny it!
Not to mention the last episode where it looked bleedingly obvious!

I would definitely have Fry and Leela together, but I would kind of shove the whole thing to the back burner, maybe have at most one or two episodes where their relationship is at the forefront.

While getting Fry and Leela together would be a risk, I think the writers could pull it off provided they didn't make it the main focus of the show and let Fry and Leela maintain discrete existences rather than making it so that everything each of them did has to involve their relationship (Technically referred to as the Do-Exactly-the-Opposite-of-Frasier strategy).

Looking at season 4, the only episodes that simply would not have worked with Fry and Leela as a couple are L&R and TDHaIP. TWoF would have required a bit of a rewrite and TFP would need to drop the Fry & Leela 1 subplot but other than that, the remaining episodes would still work. Even the extremely shippy The Sting would work just as well with Fry as Leela's official boyfriend.

I would hope they don't get together if the series was re-newed. They should take it back to where they left off before TDHaIP and make the Leela/Fry thing a bit more subtle.

yeah, i agree. as much as i liked to see struggling to win leela's heart, that's why i likes it. fry with leela's heart wouldn't be as funny. besides, we've seen other reletionship episodes: PYHOMS, HHRHGB, probably other's that i'm forgetting, in any of those, once fry gets in a relationship (amy, morgan) their jokes just get kind of stale. but fry and leela's jokes now...   laff
Leela: I love all living creatures!
Fry: Even me?
Leela: As a friend.

Because the thread is for ideas you would like to see in Futurama if it came back on air.
Also, your replying without adding to the content of the thread.

@ski faster - I doubt that would happen in Futurama as Matt Groening said something before about the two shows saying that Futurama is set in the real world, and in that world the Simpsons is still a TV program coming up to its 500th season or something and considering also that Matt was recently in a Simpsons episode signing Bender dolls, Matt said it would confuse the fans if they had to many crossover episodes.
that was confusing to write! I bet I still got it wrong..
Plus there has already been quite a few Simpsons references in the show already coming in the form of old merchandise in the background....
