Last week Booking Through Thursday asked about favorite literary couples and I just couldn't think of any literary couples that I LOVE LOVE LOVE.
But I almost immediately thought of my favorite TV couples. (who I do sort of feel strongly about) I think (and agree with Florinda) that it's easier to think of favorite TV couples because you get to see the relationship develop overtime and see the chemistry of the actors, etc.
So while I should probably save this for Valentine's Day or something, I thought I'd talk about my favorite TV couples.
For some reason, I just LOVE Felicity and Ben. And a great deal of it is probably that I love Felicity. I know some people found her annoying, but I found her incredibly endearing. Maybe because I related so much to the trying to find meaning in everything/overanalytical side of her. And Ben was so mysterious with that barely above a whisper voice. And that smile.... Long before the bigger successes of Alias and LOST, J.J. Abrams worked on this little gem of a show. There's nothing more romantic than a girl chasing a boy across the country, learning to stand on her own two feet, and then eventually winding up with him anyway. Sometimes, the on again off again tension could get to be a little much but I loved these two. I love this show.
Here's a perfect example of why I love Logan and how all the intense relationship scenes always seemed to play out. (Logan pouring out his heart and Veronica freaking)
My favorite epic love story! I just really hope there is no killing of the Penny or the Desmond in the next 34 episodes. Penny and Des forever!!! In fact, let's have a look at that beautiful phone call again.
There aren't any other couples I really care about. I would be interested in a Naomi /Dell relationship on Private Practice, but I don't know if the show will ever go there. I prefer Kate and Sawyer together on LOST, but I won't die if she ends up with Jack. (talk about some really fervent shippers, though...) Once upon a time, I loved Meredith and Derek but that show did a great job of making me just not care.
So, um, do you like any of the same couples? Who are your favorite TV couples?
