I despised all the flashing to the beat -  extremely annoying and pointless, wasted effort - but other than that I liked it.  Especially the fact that there was a range of clips from different episodes. 

I've only really seen ones with clips from The Sting and TDHAIPT.  It gets old, but finally one uses Parasites Lost which I think is my favorite shippy epside.

Any shippy things to discuss...hmmm

Missed shippy opportunities in episodes..?
1. In 'That's Lobstertainment' Fry and Leela were stuck in the Planet express ship for a (week or so?) and we were hardly given any insight to what they were doing, what sexual or romantic tension insued inside.  Grr! mad


2. In the Cyber House Rules, I would have liked to have seen a little more jealousy from Fry.  Leela was thinking of having a child with Adlai and Fry didn't bat an eyelid at that!


Just some ideas... did we discuss this already...?  It seems somewhat familiar...

In That's Lobstertainment, it was two weeks. Maybe Fry asking to play "tic-tac-toe" again was code for something else?   flirt

Exactly. And the tar pit could even have chronotons in it to explain how two weeks only took up a few hours. On second thought, a few hours alone would probably be all it would take, and that joke can stay!

As for Cyberhouse Rules, after Leela starts dating Adlai he sort of becomes a mindless drone. Not that going along with Bender is odd for him, but it seemed moreso than usual.

1. My head would have exploded after a few hours. I don't see how Fry can work around his dreamgirl when she's in combat boots. Put her in an evening gown slit all the way up her thigh and...! (BTW, that would make a great new episode: the lost week in the tar. It could start and end with actual clips from Lobstertainment of them getting stuck and then emerging but in between spend the whole episode on them going through a range of emotions as they react to one another. "Wuthering Heights" with just two characters. Sort of a "My Dinner with Andre" with romantic tension and inuendo.)

2. Fry did react pretty strongly when the tall handsome doctor first came around the PE building and again two or three other times. You could chalk it up to his general take-it-or-leave-it attitude, but I think his lack of reaction at that moment may just have been to give other elements of the story some space to develop.

I have an idea for 'disscussion'  tongue.
What would happen if Fry lost interest in Leela? How would Leela react and ditto for Fry?

I think Fry would find someone, leela would be dead jelous and make Fry choose between herself and fry's gf and Fry would probally choose Leela, though. i'd wish he'd choose his new gf, if they're happy together that it. I think Fry is too good for leela, and that Leela is really horrid  tongue

I've confused myself. I do want F&L together, i just feel sorry for Fry having to wait so long. Leela should take him now or else Fry will eventually get bored and Find himself a GF who likes him. That's what i was trying to say  tongue.

also that i think leela is quite mean. There are people like Zapp, adali, sean... who come in do one think that impresses her and wins her over but fry seems to do amazing things for her all the time and she, for some reason, can't love him even though he's a million times better than the rest of her BF.

She seems to be easily blinded by power and/or pity. She also has deep psychological issues, which result in her not being able to love herself, which inhibits anything good relationship-wise with her. She's scared of pushing Fry away, and while she does look down upon his lack of importance it becomes a cover for her fear and self-hatred. She thinks getting someone powerful will give her self-worth, but power-seeking people are typically assholes, and that's all she's come across. Sean was just a bastard. In fact, maybe one of the reasons she's so reluctant with Fry is that he reminds her of Sean somewhat. Jesus, you could right an entire dissertation on Leela's mental and emotional problems, but I'll cut my rant here.

I don't hate leela. I just don't see how she can refuse to date Fry when she dates jerks like, zapp, adlai, chaz...

on a related point - is anyone watching Primeval? if not DO. I need another series  tongue and it's amazingWell Fry/Leela remind me of Connor/Abby. Connor is a bit of a dork/geek. Abby is independant, loves animals. Connor really loves abby. You can tell Abby kinda likes Connor but whenever somethying is about to happen eg hug kiss... this dude called Steve who abby likes gets in the way, even though Steve is a jerk He flirted with Abby while he had another gf and connor is so sweet he saved her single handedly from a mosasaur

So what i'm trying to say is - watch Primeval And that it's not that i hate Leela, i just find her... difficult and annoying.
Watch Primeval - It's sorta over now but hey...(It has dinosaurs!)

No offence taken, there are more than enough legitamate reasons for Leela not to want to date Fry, but as fry said "We both know there's something there."

Shiny wrote a reeeeeeeeally good fanfic about that called "The other side of Parasites", which explains Leela's actions at the end.  It's somewhere in the fanfic/art section...

SW will clarify, but I think Don Vito is some gross lackey connected to pro skate punk Bam. I'll further venture that his point is that a person/character can be so vile and repulsive that it doesn't matter how much love they express for you, a person just can't return it.

I've wondered the same about Fry. If I were a female I think I'd find his expressions of attraction cute but he'd have to shape up a bit to be worth making a commitment to.

@SW - disturbing. Please don't tell me you are comparing leela liking Fry to some chick liking him. please don't.

@ HipNoJoe - I disagree with that bit about Fry. Fry is sweet and kind and deffinately already worth Leela making a commitment to. No person doesn't have any flaws. But Fry, has very few major issues compared to Leela's other dates. Which is why i still don't see why Leela wont date Fry but wilol date zapp, adilai, chaz...

HipNoJoe hit my point on the head.

Pazuzu, while you may think Fry "deserves" a chance with Leela, you can't force someone on another. Zapp was a mistake, Adlai gave her part of what he always wanted: to be normal, but she realized (much like Fry in PL) she'd rather be loved for who she is. Chaz wooed her with his power, giving her a feeling of self worth or something. Also, could Fry support a family?

I've been booed before for defending Leela's decisions to ignore or rebuff Fry's advances, but putting myself in her place, I don't think I'd want to live the rest of my days with someone who seems to be head-over-heels for me but can't take care of themselves let-alone me/us. Sure, that's un-romantic but I'm influenced by personal history in that attitude.

I'm biding my time 'til 2008 to see if Fry continues on his path of progress that he seemed to be on late in the first few seasons. At some point he'll meet Leela's minimum expectations ("All I want is a boyfriend who when you go out with him no one says he's crummy." ) and maybe in Devil's Hands he did.

PazuzuJr, I can totally understand you being blind to Fry's shortcomings. You know that I have a hard time seeing anything wrong with Leela.

I think they both need a good shove into each other by their respected friends. If they somehow had to let eacho ther see new people, I don't know if that'd even be qualified as Futurama. The way I see that, it's as if they've shoved content in from some other show and used Futurama in it's place.

Fry's sweet, caring, loyal, and pretty much the best guy for Leela that we've been introduced to in the series so far.  But he does have flaws that could easily repel a woman like Leela.

Leela would have to lower her standards when it comes to men(which may be a good thing actually).

She'd have to give up the man in her dreams who's ambitions have lead him to working in the senate, as well as a man who's also a romantic who loves and cares for her like nothing else. - Fry's the latter, but his ambitions are so low it naturally turns Leela off.

He's a horrible slob, but I'm not sure if it's the messiness that Leela dislikes.  Maybe just the fact he takes long breaks between showers...

Well, people would still see him as crummy, (he's now well known for the crappy 'world's best opera') but Leela doesn't.  And probably doesn't care anymore at this point what others think.

She's not ashamed of her parents at all, so I could easily see her not caring anymore about what other people think of her boyfriend/husband.  She's grown out of it.  I hope.

   *sigh* You little rascals floating around here. You've lost the touch, you have. Shiny, send me your spirit, please!

   [Silence]

   Ok, maybe I'll just wing this. One step at a time, eh?

   A certain Average-Looking Guy whom I will not name asks Leela to have children with him. Has Leela entirely forgotten where children come from? This is the only blemish upon an otherwise exemplary episode. It could just be a joke on the tendency of women to put all other concerns aside when it comes to offspring, I don't know. But I can't say I found it very funny.

   So anyways, Leela agrees. Now, where do children come from? You can bet your genitalia, two livers and spleen that Fry's jealous! But before he can get too far into his anger at the Certain Average-Looking Guy who's gonna be making love to his woman, Bender's phone rings.

   Turns out they're gonna adopt a child instead. Ok, not so bad, but still not ideal. Fry, being the devious-at-times kind of guy he is, thinks up a way to save the orphans from misguided Bender and save his girl from The Certain Average-Looking Guy Who Doesn't Give an Electrocuted Dingleberry About the Real Her at the same time.

   Fry gives an anonymous tip-off to the police just when he hears that the couple is acomin' over. Now, his only job is to sit back with a forced non-nonchalant look on his face until the Time of Arrival.

   “Leela, there's nothing wrong with anything.”

   There certainly isn't, kiddo.

I mean, from reviews, it ranked down with A Leela of Her Own, which I agree, wasn't very good. But Lobstertainment? That was wonderful! But then I realized what the problem was...

Fry and Leela were trapped alone on the ship for four entire weeks and nothing happened!

Terrible episode, terrible!

Dammit, that's my story idea and my stuff about tic-tac-toe from like two months ago when I first saw the episode. You're quite welcome to write though.

In my experience if two people write a fic as opposed to one the whole thing doesn't turn out so good. There are the different styles of each author to take into account, and a lot of the time two different styles just don't work that well together. I'd still read it though.   wink

Also, about Leela:

Leela's too fussy when it comes to men. What about that guy with the frog tongue? What's his name - Doug. She liked him before she saw the tongue, but afterwards she went right off him. She doesn't like people discriminating her because of her eye, so she shouldn't be such a hypocrit and do exactly that to others!!! Ding! My ranting tme is up.
