Naw, I find aliens sexxier than mutants plus they could have got a lot more stories if she was an alien but I guess that doesn't mateer cos Fox are cancelling the show anyways DIE FOX DIE!!!!

I was disappointed.  I thought the fact that she was an alien made her cool.

I've said it so many times, but I'll gladly do it again: making Leela find out of her heritage so early in the series was a bad move. They never touched upon her search for her people, except for half of "A Bicyclops Built For Two". There is so much potential storylines lost in that.

Furthermore it's anti-climatic to the entire build-up to find out she was a mutant. After 3 seasons of "alien orphan"-builduċ I expected something grand, mesmerising, a tour-de-force.

The episode itself was good, and incredible cute, particular those last 2 minutes. It's the timing and the result I object to.

And I agree with wanker, "sexy alien babe" has a much nicer ring to it than "sexy mutant babe". Well, to me she is still a sexy alien{ babe.  love

And I blame the evil FOX execs. BTW, welcome to PEEL, Evil FOX Exec.  Enjoy it here. I admire your courage.  wink

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

If FOX don't renew Futurama, and the rest of the DVDs stick to production order, won't "Leela's Homewold" be fairly late on in the series?

I think the threat of cancalletion might have forced Matt Groening to show his hand earlier than he otherwise would have.  Imagine if they hadn't made "Leela's Homeworld", and then FOX placed the show on hiatus.  We'd all be bitching that we never got to find out the truth about Leela's origins.

In the coming months we may find the same is true of "The Why of Fry" and "The Devil's Hands..." - that they're quick wrap-ups to outstanding storylines.

As for Leela's being a mutant, it doesn't matter to me; she's still the cutest chick on TV!  love

First: No, "Leela's Homeworld" would still be a mid-season 4 episode, with hardly any episodes devoted to the search-for-her-heritage thing before. Mid-season 4 is too early to wrap up such a huge part of a character, IMHO.

The script to LH was written around spring 2001, or earlier. The script HJS won said it was from 3/2-2001. Way before the hiatus-thing.

I stand to be corrected on this point, but various websites I visited in 2001 gave the impression that Futurama was in serious trouble long before it was actually put on hiatus.

Leela's homeworld was a good episode plus I have the script of it that I won before the episode even aired.

The whole Leela is a mutant thing was just a rap up of what leela is.

i don't mind that she's a mutant. And i hope her parents show up in several more eps. I know they will be in at least one more.
 i do agree however, that there should have been at least one other ep dealing with her actually LOOKING for her parents rather then having them just appear as they do.

Her parents do appear in a future episode "Less than Heroes". It was aired at a Comic-convention last year.

Also her parents were in a MUCH earlier episode " I second that Emotion" in the mutant crowd. Some people thought that this was just a coincidence that the production crew ran with later on thinking "Hey yeah these 2 are one eyed mutants... lets make Leela a mutant."

But if u look at the concept art for that episode (Included on Season2 DVD set) they are labeled then as her parents (Disc also includes Season4 concept art of Leela's Parents).

I didn't think much of Leela's Homeworld when it first aired.  After watching it a couple of more times on tape, it has grown to be one of my favourite eps.  I'm not disappointed at all over Leela's origins.  She's a mutant, meh that's just fine with me.  Makes her more down to earth. *rimshot*  As far as purple haired, cyclops mutants go, she's all that and a bag of chips!  love

If Leela would have been an alien, she would be unique woman on earth.
