Good episode which finally clears up Leela's parents. Nasty that they called it Homeworld as it makes you think of her as more of an alien like that!

This one was one of the lamest episodes. I watch Futurama because of its great humor. But this episode was all about Leela and his parents and... blabla... I thought that I'm watching some kind of soap opera.

I'm not sure why people are complaining that it wasn't funny. How could it have been? A topic like this demands a serious treatment - one of Futurama's great aspects is that it is capable as both comedy and serious. It was the most touching piece of Television I have ever seen and credit must be given to the composer, Christopher Tyng, for his absolutely beautiful score, which I am not ashamed to say, had me in tears by the end. Low on comedy, but exceptionally high on quality - first rate Futurama.

I liked the scene when Bender used Fry to break the window. And the ending sequence showing Leela as she grew up was very nice.

I thought it was great. It was really touching at the end. But could someone tell me what that song's title was and the artist?

Though this may make me sound like a tired nerd, this was probably the worst episode so far in Futurama. I don't care about Leela as a character, and the jokes were completely flat, some pointlss (such as the balloon.) The timing seemed off, as the big shocker was revealed in the first 5 minutes. Futurama as a whole is still excellent, but getting unnessessarily more dramatic, and the quality suffers when it does.

I thought this was a pretty good episode. I wasn't expecting Leela to be a mutant. That's pretty cool. I likie it better knowing she's a mutant then a one eyed alien from another planet. Maybe she could use the "I'm a mutant," excuse to get Zapp Brannigan off her back. Something I noticed in the episode was that when she saw the time line of her life in her parents house, there was a picture of her from the episode "Godfellas," which was supposed to have aired before this episode, but got postponed. She said, "Hey, this is when I dropped out and bummed around India for a while."

They can't all be hilarious. Still, even a bad Futurama is better than most other things on TV.
If anybody knows the name of the song used at the end of this episode, please email me! It's stuck in my head and I must buy it!

Overall a good episode, with a great plot, but unfortunately the execution left something to be desired:

- What is the point of the wall-hanging at the orphanarium? was there a joke here?

- Leela's suicide-dive into the radioactive waste didn't feel right. Why would she dive into waste when she thought she'd be mutated? Just because of a hunch? please. Come up with a better reason for your characters to dive a few hundred feet into waste please.

-Alot of the jokes fell flat or were out of place. The episode seemed confused as to whether it would be a drama or a comedy

-I can only compare it to Luck of the Fryish, which was better.
