“It gave us the arrogance to do extra episodes like that,” David X. Cohen admitted to Purple Carpet Information. “That was a turning level within the present for me.” Positive sufficient, as “Futurama” went on, the collection grew to become extra snug going to darker, sadder locations. Two seasons after “The Luck of the Fryrish,” the present would outdo itself with “Jurassic Bark,” which basically serves as a sequel to the aforementioned episode. Though Cohen notes that the sooner episode was “very tough to jot down, as a result of it had quite a lot of flashbacks,” the latter episode retains the identical construction. It jumps forwards and backwards between Fry attempting to reunite together with his canine Seymour, to flashbacks exhibiting us his and Seymour’s relationship.
However whereas the sooner episode ends on the heartwarming be aware of Fry realizing how a lot his brother missed him after his disappearance, “Jurassic Bark” ends with Fry selecting to not deliver Seymour again to life. When he learns Seymour lived for 12 years after he was gone, he assumes his canine should’ve lengthy forgotten about him. We’re then handled to a montage of Seymour ready alone exterior Panucci’s Pizza Store for over a decade, hoping in useless for Fry to return.
It is devastating, but it surely nonetheless has that optimistic message that made “The Luck of the Fryrish” so nice. While you’re gone, as “Futurama” tells us over and over, folks will miss you greater than you’d assume. Fry usually considers himself a loser, somebody who lucked out by touchdown in that cryo-chamber as a result of his life was so mediocre, however Fry’s disappearance haunted his brother for the remainder of his life, and poor Seymour by no means recovered. “Futurama” is a humorous present, however when “Futurama” returns with the Hulu revival, we hope it nonetheless has the center beneath all of it that made it so particular.
