    My friend and I talk about it all the time...saddest Futurama moment by far. I used to turn it off everytime, so I didnt have to see poor Seymour. :(
    Yeah, I get way too overwhelmed there. I end up petting my dog Kramer afterwards too and now I just turn it off. It's such a depressing song too.
    Is that a rash?

      Did anyone else feel insanely depressed at the end of Jurassic Bark?
      Luck of the Fryish is pretty emotional too.

        I have yet to listen to "Don't You Forget About Me" the same way again.

        • I think the difference between Futurama/The Simpsons and Family Guy is that the former shows bring about a decent emotional connection to the characters. Plus the jokes are vital to the plot too.

            Well here's the typical episode of Family Guy.

            -Chris has a crush.
            -Peter says "Man, it's better than the last crush he had!"
            :Flashes back to Chris making an incestous shuffle to a family member"
            -Stewie wants to kill Lois.
            -*** joke regarding Stewie.
            -Meg is hated.
            -Someone viciously hits Meg.
            -"Too Soon?" joke that's more stupid than insulting. "What's the deal with that dead goose that died 'cause of that plane?!?"
            -Brian wants to have secks with Lois.
            -Story ends with Chris's crush..dying.

            The other shows have better writing and you can tell.

            Did anyone ever see Mission Hill? Love(d) that show.

              Mission Hill was great in it's run. Great music in the show and Stogie the Dog FTW

                Jim was great too! It was ridiculously appealing to the eye as well, I like the way it was written and drawn. I'm pretty certain it was one of the last real "drawn" shows out there which is a shame IMO. It was immature but it was also funny in that regard.

                  Jim was hilarious. Brian Posehn fit the character to a tee.

                  • Since I didn't watch Mission Hill (shocking since I watch everything humanly possible that gets raved about), I'll just bring up the fact that I just bought the entire Batman Animated Series. Good stuff.

                      Oh man without a doubt, I loved the episode with the hot pants.

                      Brodeur-I'm shocked you haven't. It's hilarious. Kudos on Batman though, but here's the first half of the pilot. You can just youtube "Mission Hill" if you want to see any of the rest and the other episodes.

                      • I never liked that one...I've seen a bunch of episodes but, it never clicked with me.

                          I loved that show. The over-usage of "d-bag" made it even better.

                          • Meh I blame the producers for what happened to the Simpsons. They did whatever they could to continue putting it on TV. They were out of ideas. So lets just bring in celebrity guest stars as much as possible to generate ratings. Then they made Homer soooooo pathetic. He would end up crying in a corner every episode. He was always sort of pathetic in the way he was so stupid and got into crazy situations, but they turned him into depressingly pathetic.

                              Even moreso yes.

                              It's like they took the worst parts of Homer and amped them up. How is watching/hearing Homer angrily moan for 15 straight seconds funny? They accentuated and drew out his worst nuances.

                              • I can't remember the name but the episode where Leela meets her parents for the first time was a good one too. Great song during that flashback montage.

                                Edit: Leela's Homeworld, that's the one.
