I read it, if it makes you feel any better. Your transition explanations certainly went above and beyond the typical responses. However, while people may debate what constitutes a supporting or peripheral character, I don't think Bender is anything other than a "main" character...

lol, Bender as a supporting character?  Man, SpaceMaN, you should have not have wasted the rest of your post with content, I stopped reading at that point.

I could get on-board with the notion that Fry is the star of the show, while every other character provides varying degrees of support. Like a pyramid structure, with Fry at the very top, Leela and Bender one level down, then the rest of the PE crew on the bottom. But that's only if I'm really stretching it and/or playing devil's advocate.

I suppose, but if that's the case, then doesn't 'favourite main character' seem kind of pointless, if it's only Fry?

LOOK AT MY CHOICES, PEOPLE!

I'm glad you saw it that way everyone, as free will and your opinion is yours to do with what you please.  After further review, the call on the field stands, I am not charged a time-out.  Resume posting as normal, I'm ready to incur and ignore the wrath of Svip and everyone else.

I am not sure I understand, you posted the way you did to get people to read it and some responds?  And then you now intend to ignore our posts when we did read and respond to it?  Contradiction, much?

Well, I see Bender as a supporting character.  He supports the lead.  If you really want me to retract my statement, how deep do I have to go for supporting?  Hermes? Robot Devil? Billionaire Bot? Hank Aaron XXIV? Mr. Panucci?

I'm pickin' him.  Favorite supporting character:  Mr. Panucci.  No, Seymour.  No, Bender when he turned human in the one episode.

I feel like we've had this argument before, about what distinguishes main characters from supporting ones, but I'm way too lazy to find a link. I think your opinion is unconventional, SpaceMaN--but, like I said, I can see where you're coming from.

Edit: Never mind, I wasn't too lazy.

It's all good, I'll go edit it in a minute, but for now I'm still trying to think of how I'm going to.  Stay tuned.

It's up to you how deep to go for supporting; some see only the Big Three as main and the rest of the crew, even the Professor, as supporting, while some see the crew as main and then branch out. Are Zapp and Kif supporting or peripheral? And should people be looking at the series as a whole (since in a specific episode, say "A Head in the Polls," Nixon is certainly supporting if not a "main" character within the plot, while overall I'd say he's more peripheral...or is he? He's a recurring character with decent-sized roles, so is that enough to make him supporting?)? I seem to recall Svip making some sort of clarification list about this issue before, but even then it's still rather subjective. But I'm not trying to attack you here; it's just that, as Svip said, if Fry is the one and only lead (unless you think Leela is too but not Bender), then that category does lose its meaning.

Yeah, there we go, on the second page.

I can't even type anymore.

For all the time I put into that, I'm sure regretting that post now.

Never underestimate the anger of nerds.

edit: not you Tedward, I appreciate that, but Svip had his list and I abused it, so I just have to take it like a man for a few days till it hopefully blows over.

edit2: I figured out my edit.

I was tempted to add another section to mine

'Favourite quote'

but actually thinking about it would probably take a long time try to figure out which one was my favourite.

Wow...I looked through my old profile and my least favorite episode has definitely changed to Yo Leela Leela...how was Jurassic Bark not mentioned as one of the saddest? Silly one year younger me.
