it's never a good idea to kill off characters indiscriminately. Not unless you've already worked out exactly how to bring them back without the fan community screaming "ass-pull!" at you.

Futurama deliberately went for nerdy sci fi audience. Folks known to pick every minor, little plot detail apart.
So even the most elaborate, hilarious, brillant plot bringing a character back (I am talking of (TLPJF*TDHAIP)^TKOS) brillant will automatically spawn "Ass-pull" comments.

What about TTOBH, doesn't that count as a death in the crew or of the crew?
My bad. Thought we were talking about episodes.

(TLPJF*TDHAIP)^TKOS

* Xanfor approves of this notation.

So, if I'm right, what you're saying is...

{NOTATION}Xanfor(Approval) > 0

At least, that's how I'd write it as a chemist. I assume that a physicist would do so in rather similar terms. A mathematician might interpret it differently, and a symbolic logician would probably complicate it beyond understanding, then spontaneously ejaculate* in excitement.

*As in a verbal exclamation, seemingly apropos of nothing.

I'd say:

Xanfor(notation) --> approving, when notation --> (TLPJF*TDHAIP)^TKOS

They could pull a South Park at the end of every episode.

"Oh my god, they killed the Professor!"
"You bastards!"

Hehe...no, that would be a terrible idea.

It wouldn't be a bad idea for a troll on fanfiction.

If I had to pick one character out of the ones given on the Poll, I'd say Hermes. He's not a very important character, and he's already died three times in the show, even if they weren't permanent (BBS, TSMDM, MOTPE). Plus, if they needed him to return, he could come back as a Robot TSMDM style, or as a head like in BBS.

Yeah, he'd be fine if his guts just took a few classes or something.
