Love is All Around: TV Couples We Adore #AtoZChallengeApril 14, 2016
This post is part of my #A2ZChallenge for April 2016 where my theme is TV Sitcoms.
For the letter L, I choose Love: the TV Couples we adore.
I always have a soft corner for couples in Tv shows over those in a movie. It is just that with a Tv show, you get to flesh out the bonds between them so beautifully over a long period of time. You get to showcase the intricacies of what makes them tick, something which often gets lost in a 2 hour movie.
There are so many couples from TV shows whom we adore and probably yearn to emulate in our own personal lives. Here are my choices for TV couples I love.
Kate Beckett & Richard Castle, Castle.
The two who showcase how the little moments matter and take you through the whole cycle of first meeting, disdain, annoyance, infatuation, crush, caring for one another, fear of being rejected, realizing it is love. My Gold standard for love in a TV show.
Marshall & Lily, How I Met Your Mother
So much positive energy. So many ways to showcase how keeping each other as a top priority matters.
Chandler & Monica, FRIENDS
Tight call between these two and Ross & Rachel. I am choosing these two because they constantly boost each other up. In spite of being polar opposites, they fit together, accepting each other's 'crazy'.
I agree. Loved that season
Phil & Claire Dunphy, Modern Family
Again a show where all 3 couples offer something positive to covet. I choose Phil & Claire over Mitch & Cam because as a couple married for 16 years with 3 grown kids, they still manage to keep the magic alive with their own cute & naughty ways.
Claire: Honey, do you want popcorn or anything?
Phil: No, I’m good… ‘N’ plenty. So hold your water ‘cause I’ve got some “twix” up my sleeve.
Claire: You may be cool, but I’m… wine cooler.
Phil: I love us.
Brad & Jane, Happy Endings
The relationship I want to emulate someday. Its basically Chandler & Monica, done better.
Quick-witted hubby, perfectionist wife, opposites in so many matters but always knowing they love each other and that they matter to the other.
Will & Grace, Will & Grace
Do you really need sex to be in love? If there is a show that underlined that fact better than this, I don't know which one it is. Neurotic Grace and her gay best friend Will were one of the best stories of loving each other through thick and thin. Most real life married couples would kill to have half the emotional bond these two shared.
David Addison & Maddie Hayes, Moonlighting
Before Bruce Willis was Die Hard, he played arguably his best role ever. As the smooth talking Detective working alongside the bankrupt model now running the detective agency, their tender moments together as they slowly fell for each other were some of the highlights of the best years of that show.
Leslie & Ben, Parks and Recreations
Good guys/girls end up last. Nope. Not on this show. This couple was all about being sweet, funny and caring for each other and yet ending up winning. Which is really something a lot of good people who've lost in love should learn from. You don't have to give up being good in a bad world.
Kevin Arnold & Winnie Cooper, The Wonder Years
The best depiction of one's first love. The best depiction of growing up during those tumultous teenager years too, I guess.
So who did I miss? Which couples do you love and feel should be in this list?Do tell and I will add and update the list as we go.
