If Bender was to get killed off, I'd stop playing my Mario games because Mario would be a good friend to Bender.

I'd get on with life, move this thread to HR, and check you into a clinic.

I would also wait for Juliet to swear at you for even bringing up such an idea.

I'd, like most, people be disappointed that one of Futurama's most beloved character's would get the axe.  I'd still watch it though.  If it was Leela or Fry, I'd quit watching it.

I'd be saddened, and then I'd eagerly await his reappearance in a following episode. A la How Hermes Got His Groove Back, they could find a backup disk of Bender's memories, and put those in a new bending unit, resurrecting Bender. If he stayed dead, I'd be sad, and then watch to see how the series was affected, what directions they take it in.
And Andrea... NEVER turn aside from your N64, as these barbarians suggest. That's a horrifying idea and they should be more ashamed of themselves than usual for suggesting it.

What the hell are you talking about?  Overdosing on video games is bad for you.  For most of high school I was addicted to the damn things and spent all my free time playing on my computer.  Soon after I cut back I actually developed a life.  Improved my grades, got in shape, went on dates, etc.

In my fanfic that I'll be writing today, Bender first met the Mario bros. when he invited them to Planet express. I can't think of anything else to say...

If Bender was killed, I'll expect something along the lines of TMC's post to happen. This is Futurama, written by Star Wars fanatics, Trekkies and other sci-fi-type people. People die, and spring back to life on a regular basis in these shows.

Just ask Harry Kim, Chief O'Brien, Neelix, Data, etc.

Which reminds me of a Family Guy quote:

Kirk:Alright men this Mission is very Dangerous,There's a slight possiblity that one of us might be killed.The Crew that will come with me on that Mission are Spock (?) and Ensign Denny
Denny:Ah,Crap !

Also there is another Ensign Denny in one of Bernerd Cornwell's Sharpe's series.He also dies.It's tough being a Ensigh.

That is looking on the bright side of things.

In the unlikely event that Bender got killed off I'd still watch the show (assuming it wasn't going to be killed soon anyway) Bender is a cool character but he isn't needed, it isn't "The Bender Show" after all.

Then why did the God say he was doing fine until everyone died. It was for our humour that he bungled it up. Like when he blew out the fire and it caused some of the shrimpkins to get swept away.

That's the point, everybody died.  What kind of god lets the entirity of his worshippers die off?  A pretty crummy one, if you ask me.  Even so, Bender was not a god in the true sense of the term - he was just some unlucky fella who got pelted with a rock that had a buncha tiny lifeforms on it.  Go see MIIB, where J is worshipped as a god by a bunch of little aliens living in a locker - he sure as heck was no god.  In fact, some have theorized (Teral, need your linkalicious help here) that the Shrimpkins never existed, that they were the figment of an imagination jump-started by a blow to the head. 

Go read Small Gods by Terry Pratchett and tell me how great of a god someone is that lets all his or her believers die off.

Ok lets go over this:
God: You were doing well until everone died
Bender: It was awful. I tried helping them I tried not helping them, but I couldn't seem to do them any good.

The Shrimpkins had to leave some how for continuaty's sake. The writer just choose for them to die.
Bender could have been a greater God but as I wrote before: It was for our humour that he bungled it up. Like when he blew out the fire and it caused some of the shrimpkins to get swept away.
Would it had been a better episode if Bender was out of character and suddenly did very heroic deeds?

Haley. Give it up. Bender sucked as a god. And really he was no more a god to the shrimpkins than you are a god to your head lice. They landed on him and eventually he killed them all. Power over life and death isn't godhood, it's just being bigger and stronger.

So Bender could have been a good god if the writers wanted to.  Fry could have been a functional member of 20th-century society if the writers wanted.  Homer could have been a model nuclear power plant employee if the writers wanted.  Tim the Tool Man Taylor could have been as good as Bob Villa if the writers wanted.  But guess what.  Tim was a horrible tool man, Homer was a horrible employee, Fry was a complete loser, and Bender was a horrible god.  End of story.  Bender was doing fine until he tried to be a god.  He failed miserably.  I don't understand why you take offense at even the notion that maybe, just maybe, Bender isn't perfect and great at anything he does.
