I have noticed some parallels in futurama and in other shows as far as the fry/leela type of relationship goes.

you know how their love is like a siderunning plot/theme and they will not admit to their relationship. well, i think we should make a list of shows that use this same type of relationship.

SHOWS I KNOW:
Farscape: chriton/aaron
Inuyasha: Kagome/inuyasha

what shows can you list that have this same kind of love theme?

Yes, it is original, but there are other shows simular.  I can't think of many right now, hmm.
Well, that show Jimmy Neutron or something has Jimmy and Cindy repitivetivly showing signs of liking the other one but they won't admit it.  I could only think of that show because it was just on.

The whole Mulder-Scully thing was certainly a long running hook during The X Files duration.

As far as InuYasha is concerned, that approach runs through pretty much all of Rumiko Takahashi's work: Ranma 1/2, Maison Ikukou, and Urusei Yatsura.

In the beginning the Universe was created.  This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

Julian Bashir and Jadzia Dax in the early seasons spring to mind.

Maggie O'Connel and Joel Flieshman in Northern Exposure. Although it got clumsily but not fully realized towards the end.  To a lesser degree Daphne and Niles in Frasier, but that was just nauseating from the get go.

[Smackes head]

Being a startgate sg1 fan i cannot believe that i forgot this one.

Samantha carter and colonel jack o'neil

seriously i thought of freaking inuyasha and was waching stargate sg1 while writting this tread and forgot it! [smacks head again] i mean they were married in two out of three dimensions as far as we know!!! and they most likely wouold have more of an open realtionship if it wasn't for the regulations....

I was thinking the same exact thing, MrB.  Although, they did finally get around to it, somewhat.

yeah, somewhat is always how these types of relationships end. it is always ambiguous, and i hate that. i hope futurama is not as ambiguous. guess we will find out in the coming months.

So there's still hope for Fry. All he has to do is wait for the next Leela.
