hi everyone i'm new, just got the dvd and got to thinking, wonder if you have any thoughts.  forgive me if you've already talked about it.

part of why i liked the simpsons so much were those episodes that had heart, like And Maggie Makes Three and Homer's Mom.  they were funny, sure, but they were also really poignant, almost sad at times. 

anyway, about futurama, i was watching Luck of the Fryrish and thought about the episode Jurassic Bark, and started thinking that maybe that's why i've gotten to like futurama more than the simpsons...it manages to be heartfelt even in a completely fantastical world. it was cancelled just as it got to start developing really close emotional connections, while continuing to be really freaking hilarious at the same time.  meanwhile the simpsons has lost a lot of its emotional core.  just a thought.....

any of you guys have any moments from futurama that you think elevate it above the level of basic comic cartoon?

Welcome to PEEL! By the way, Futurama definitely has heart. It is evident in episodes such as "The Luck of the Fryrish" and "Jurassic Bark".

No moment in Futurama I've ever seen affected me more than the ending of Time Keeps on Slippin'.

While that ending did get to me on the inside a little, I found it to be very sudden. It almost came from nowhere.
