Last night. I try my best to keep the fics as close to the show as possible. whens the last time you took your head out of your ass and took a look at the world?
(I'm not trying to be insultive but I have to respond to yer question lol
There would be a handfull of times that there has been elements of drama in an episode of Futurama. It is first and formost a situation comedy. There is a situation and around that funny things happen.
I'm not questioning what type of comedy it is. And I know its a comedy first but there is more drama in it than you apparently have noticed.

Ah screw this! I'm trying to say practicaly every
episode has at least a little drama in it!
Just becuase you don't like that part of the show doesn't mean it dosen't exist!
And that list was all from memory! should someone go thru and watch the eps and list all the moments of Drama
Im shure there be even more!
You've made mention of shows such as Friends and Mad About You. There is one slight advantage that Futurama posesses over these shows. It doesn't suck.
I never said Friends was good. I said the Monic/Chandler Relationship was good.
And what the hell is wrong with those types of shows?!
They're funny and romantic(when written well).
This is why I don't particularly like fanfictions, whether they be Simpsons, Futurama or whatever. There's a reason professional writers get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Oh? so your saying that the professional writers of today didn't
get that good by writing stories of there own?
Funny, 'cause I was under the impression that you have to practice writing to get good at it.
Fan fiction wrting is the perfect tool
to practice writing.
... just out curiosity, how old are you?
I'm 21(22 in June).
