English exam has inevitably come up again...and this time, I must choose my own text!

I decided to do Futurama, but was procrastinating between Jurassic Bark and Luck of the Fryrish, the two most poignant, and very meaningful, episodes.

The essay must be about the Human Condition, so they both fit the criteria. However, I can't decide which one to do, because both episodes are so dear to my heart.

Which one do you think I should write about?

In my mind, Jurassic Bark isn't so much about humans, its more about non-humans adopting human emotions, such as Bender's jealosy that eventually turns into self-sacrifice after he realises that Fry is his best-friend who he wants to see happy. Seymour also displays love and loyalty for Fry, waiting forever for his masters return.

Luck of the Fryish is about sibling rivalry and jealosy, not the finest of human emotions, lasting for a thousand years, long after Yancy had died. And the fact that Fry did not give up his jealosy until he found out that Yancy really did love him as a brother and wanted his son to live his missing brothers life.

Despite this sounding a bit more like a psychology paper than an english essay, I personally would write about Luck of the Fryish because it concerns the main character of the show, and humans, which could be related to the audience. An audience might have a harder time relating to Jurrassic Bark. Though what do I know, I'm an English dropout.

I'd go with Fryrish, too, based on pretty much everything anonymoose already pointed out (although I's like to think Yancy's motive was to honor his brother, rather than replace him with his son...).
