Generally speaking, I'm neutral towards the shipping stuff, really. ^^
I'm neither for it, nor against it.
To be honest, I rather like how the series has things currently. Fry chasing after Leela and her not liking him just yet - in my opinion, I think this adds something special and interesting to the show.
But if, in the last movie (or the end of the series, cause I'm not sure how many episodes they'll have), they do have Leela get together with Fry finally, that would be nice. I wouldn't hate it or anything like that. Because I think seeing Fry together with Leela for a certain amount of time would be cute, and something that many fans want. So it would be a good thing, as long as their dating or whatever doesn't last too long.
However, if something like that does happen, I'd be worried that Fry and Leela getting together would bring too much romance into the series. And personally, I don't want that to happen. I like the way the series is now
, and I don't want it to change.

It was me who said that. XD
Originally posted by Frisco17:He isn't dense because he got alot of life experience during his, for lack of a better term, time oddesy. But he is definatly just as playful as Fry, he just knows that there's a time and place for it. For example when he hoisted Hermes' head into the jar, "Up and away!", that's a pretty Fry thing to say. An even better example is the glass trick at the restaurant. That one made me realise that Leela doesn't mind people being immature and playful, she just minds when Fry does it because she's always looking for imperfections in him to use as excuses whenever she feels close to him.
You know what, I didn't notice any of that. O.O
But then again, I've only seen the movie one time so far....
I agree with you though, on the fact that Lars does still have some of that childishness in him. And also that, he just knows when to act like that, and when not to. However, I still don't like how Lars doesn't have as much childishness as Fry.
Anyway, yeah, I need to watch the movie through a second time, and then again a 3rd time just be sure I caught everything. I'm gonna watch the movie again tonight, cause I lovead it. ^^
I'm waiting until after I see the movie a second time, to do my review of it.

And I can't really view Lars as Fry either. To me Lars just lacked most of the characteristics that make Fry charming. It seems as if most people don't have too much of a problem with him though.
I completely agree with you there, km73.

My opinion on Lars is kinda divided.
On the one hand the whole idea of Lars being a time paradox copy of Fry was brilliant. I also think the "getting Leela together with Fry, without actually getting her together with Fry" thing is extremely clever.
As a character Lars is a tad annoying. I mean he's not Cubert annoying but just a little annoying. The main thing is that Fry is my absolute favorite character and he just isn't Fry.
I guess the short version is it isn't so much I like Lars but I like what he represents. (Not old boring Fry but a knock on the head for Leela) He'd get real old if he was a frequent character. Then again he's dead so that solves that.
It's like you took the words right out of my mouth! XD
Those are my exact thoughts and opinions on Lars as well. And I think you summed everything up nicely there.
Like you, I like the fact that Lars is a duplicate of Fry, and I like the idea of them getting Fry and Leela together without actually doing that. That was awesome!! ^_^
On the other hand, I don't like Lars as a character though. He's just not the Fry I know and love. He's a more mature person, someone who's perfect for Leela in every way possible.
And to add more to that, he's also missing some important aspects of his personality, things which I like most about Fry.
So yeah, overall, I have mixed feelings about Lars. I'm pretty neutral towards him, because I like him, and at the same time, I don't like him. ^^;
