I love this episode. has to be in my top 5 of Futurama. We finally find out the truth about Leela... and how great it is! The song at the end is very sweet.

Being a Johnny come lately (Heeeliew it's 2008!) to the series, I have enjoyed watching the series so much on Comedy Central, I have gone out to get all the Volumes. Leela's Homeworld, as all the episodes, require a much deeper analysis. Futurama continuously defies formula. It is not simply comedy, it is a mixture of many things done in a well made sit-com. Despite all the inconsisties of contenuity from episode to episode, Futurama provides food for thought. This episode is a great introduction to Leela's parents. I especially love Dad's misformed mouth (opening like normal, but with teeth moving in from the side; it plays tricks on the mind). It is an excellent piece of work. I just wish I had seen all of these episodes first run.

Yes I know I'm coming late, even though I did see the episode years ago. However I could pass the opportunity to comment on this viewing all those "Not the funnier" episode. What make an animated sitcom is a good mixed of emotions and laughter and the Simpson and alterego Futuram are very well reknowned for mixing those two together.

I for myself prefer Professor as a character and Leela come in second, then Bender, then Fry. Leela comes in second because of her history (I was an orphan) and that story just writes by deepest dream of meeting my real "Parents" unfortunately mine are dead.

So I have a particuliar affection for this episode since it dealt with something that really not everyone understands plenty. And there was some very nice jokes in it too, and yeah the drama of that episode made me like Futuram even better and I have purchased the all Seasons DVDs and the Game and The two movies.

There's a fine line between Laughter and Cry my dear friends, check that episode again and think of it again you might change your opinion about it.

This is one of the emotional episodes and whilst it's probably the weakest of the emotional episodes, the emotional episodes have set a ridiculously high standard. This episode stands strong with a great plot and great humour.

Not how I envisioned Leela meeting her parents, but the payoff at the end was just as rewarding. Great episode.

This is a really good episode. I kind of wish they had waited until the end of the episode to drop the big secret, but I watched Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles and The Mutants Are Revolting after this episode, so it didn't make a big impression. But it was really good.
