This has probably already been covered here by the various Yankee, Canadian, Australian, Slovenian…OK posters of every nationality but mine though I have just seen the episode Jurassic Bark and it was so bloody sad. I was literally on the verge of tears- at a cartoon, a very silly cartoon at that with no pretence of reality.
Why did they have to make me suffer so much, I don’t think I can ever watch Futurama again…
They can kill people by the bucket load and make them infinitely suffer and I won’t care however as soon as a dog becomes involved it just seems more real.

The point of this post? I do not know, I seem to be telling the world just how depressing that episode was, if I wasn’t in a semi-fit state of mind that episode could have made me contemplate suicide (or something else slightly less extreme)

If Fry had brought back the dog would it have been its 15 year old self and finally get to see him? That’s the way I have interrelated it and it just makes everything all the more worse.

I’m just sad and angry thinking about it… I don’t get why I am even overlooking the traditional silliness and total non-seriousness of Futurama in this, even in that episode that was clear (Fry’s dad not noticing him)  :cry:

Does anyone know if any follow up to that episode will come?
Or has Futurama been cancelled again?

Again?  It was cancelled once and stayed cancelled.

Honestly it was sad, but saying it might make you contemplate suicide... are you being literal?  Because that's a little bit of an extreme reaction.

My friend cried when she saw that episode...

But it's just a cartoon.. and the fact that animals dying make you more upset than humans dying... I think you should be questioning that a little more.

As for the topic, I cried even more after I watched JB than TLOTF. It does seem so much more sad...   :(

You can talk more about Jurassic Bark here.

'Jurassic Bark' is a very powerful episode, and just shows what Futurama is/was capable of...

Watch any Season 2 ep, that should cure your emotional problems...

Feeling more grief for the death of an animal over the death of a human doesn't mean you've got your priorities messed up, it just means you were more attached to the animal. I know I felt sadder when my dog died then I did when some the father of some guy I barely knew did.

And that's what the ep does, gets you rather attached to Seymour, or rather, brings you understanding of Fry's feelings for him.

Plus, rather then a bittersweet affirmation of brotherly love, as seen in LOTF, JB ends on a far more tragic note. There's no shame in feeling bad for a loyal animal pining away for it's entire life...

Where you from, anyway, Leej?
