Futurama (Fry is Sad)
Oh God, you know what, if I ever express an interest in rewatching Futurama's 'Jurassic Bark', can you please remind me that all six times I've watched it I've sobbed uncontrollably for five minutes afterwards? It's the most gut-wrenching and depressing fucking thing I've ever tortured myself with on multiple occasions --- and every time I think 'this time, I won't cry.' LIAR! If anything, I cry more. UGH.

See, the trouble is, it seems like you usually tell us after the fact, so we may not have an opportunity to try to talk you out of it.

Still, I'll keep a note on hand at all times. :)

This isn't the first time I've made this post, is it?

:( I'm sorry to hear that.

I don't have a Seymour and it still wrecks me.

Most depressing episode of anything ever. And I'm counting Farscape and The Wire in that.

YES. Thank you!

I don't have this violent a reaction to anything else I watch, but then, I don't tend to watch them more than once.

Bugger! Now I'm depressed and a bit choked up and you just *mentioned* the episode... *slinks off*

MY WORK HERE IS DONE! *dusts hands*

I cry my heart out at that episode, too. EVERY TIME :'(

The MUSIC makes me well up.

Though Bender's Big Score did help me to reconcile myself to the episode... Somewhat.

I can think about it without putting my head down on my hands and sobbing, at least.

I don't consider any of the films canon. I know I should, but I can't. So, no, it doesn't help :(

It's weird that 'I will wait for you' means so much to me because of that episode as opposed to The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, but it does.

I saw that a couple of weeks after my dog died -- I don't even watch it, but my wife does -- and it just about killed me... even though the idea that cloning anyone or anything will produce the same individual is ridiculous.

If humans ever learn to love the way dogs do... we'll be a much finer species.

:( Oh God.

(Oh yeah, the premise is ridiculous, but Futurama does that a lot.)

It is absolutely one of the most devastating things I've ever seen on tv. I can't even handle it.
5th-Nov-2009 07:26 am (UTC)
Neither can I. But I continually subject myself to it.

Just thinking about that episode makes me tear up a little.
5th-Nov-2009 07:26 am (UTC)
I'm sorry. :(

Oh, god, that episode leaves me bawling, everytime!!!

It's the most downer ending for a comedy series episode barring, like, Blackadder II, EVER.

I don't think any episode of anything has every made me cry as much...except perhaps once at the end of Doctor Who's 'New Earth' where Chip!Cassandra told Human!Cassandra that she was beautiful...I just lost it.

The ending to Life on Mars is the only other episode to hit me so emotionally --- and guess what? I've watched it twice and vow never to do so again.

(I properly cried for about 40 minutes, and then would think about it in the next few days and cry more --- for different reasons.)

Shit. I wondered what you all were talking about and went to read about it, found a summary on Wikipedia, and now I'm crying like a baby.

I'm so sorry. It's a truly devastating episode of television.
