  1. Gordon Jump was a devoutly religious man (Mormon, I’m 99% sure), and it seems like I read an interview with him once where he said that he felt that the message the episode was trying to get across was more important than the damage it might do to his fanbase or career.

    I do wonder how much criticism he got for it over the years, though.

  2. I’d have to vote for the ending to Dinosaurs. It had been a fairly solid riff on the usual family sitcom, but the end was REALLY dark.
