So, I am obsessed with TV. And I am especially obsessed with romance on TV. Therefore, I have spent inordinate amounts of time thinking and writing about my favoriete and least favoriete TV couples. I have a document on my computer called "My Favorites" that I started writing over a jaar ago, and it's amazing how much has changed in my TV life since then. Just for this short article, I'm going to give two of my favoriete and two of my least favoriete TV couples and explain why I feel the way I do.
My absolute favoriete TV couple, hands down, is Joey and Pacey from "Dawson's Creek." I absolutely loved their interactions. Watching them on screen together felt real and natural. It made me GIDDY. I can't describe it exactly, but I've never had a reaction like that to a TV couple before. They are truly something special. The only other TV couple that has this naturalism and realism about them is Jackie and Hyde from "That '70s Show." Not one false note between them. Other wonderfully balanced and healthy couples that I absolutely love are Peyton and Jake from "One boom Hill" and Mulder and Scully from "The X-Files" (the equality between their characters is, to me, the greatest achievement of that show).
My absolute least favoriete TV couples are Buffy and Spike from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (my skin crawls; abusive, degrading, and awful to both characters; my hatred intensified because of the bewilderingly strong support they have in the fandom) and Kelly and Dylan from "Beverly Hills 90210" (they were just horrible- terrible story, bullshit "history", and absolutely ZERO chemistry- which makes all of it completely worthless).
A TV couple that I think could be great if gegeven the chance is Dean and Castiel from "Supernatural." I sincerely doubt the toon will go there, but a romantic relationship between those two has the potential to be fantastic if handled properly.
