Favorite T.V. Couples

I decided to try a different post today than I usually do. I think lists are fun and favorite lists are even funner (yes, I know that is not a word) and I want this blog to be fun, not only for you but for me as well.

I don’t watch too much television, mostly because I am realist and most shows baffle my mind on the situations characters get themselves in. However, every once in a while I do stumble across shows that capture my attention and forces me to invest my precious time. It even less likely for me to invest in loving a relationship between two fictional characters, but guess what? These relationships made me do it and I loved watching every step of their relationship.

Oh and in case you didn’t know, *spoilers ahead*

Dwight and Angela – The Office

Oh were you expecting Jim and Pam? Yeah, no. I did like their relationship, but you always knew they were going to be together. There was no surprise, even when she was with Roy you knew it was coming. Dwight and Angela though, they were entertaining. They seemed to always love each other even when they were apart and their strict attitudes and opinions just complimented each other. I am so glad that they finally got together in the last season and their wedding was one of the highlights of the last season.

J.D and Elliot – Scrubs

I absolutely love Scrubs. It had everything I needed, Comedy, Drama and a T.V. Couple I absolutely adored (No I am not talking about Turk and J.D. That is another list for another day). Elliot is a underestimated character and one of my favorites, her neurosis made me related to her in a way I never had with a character before. When they first got together I knew it was not going to work out, characters needed to grow and mature and that is exactly what they did. By the time they really truly got together towards the end of the show, I knew they were the one for each other. I loved them so much that when the season finale aired I almost cried, and I never done that before.

Willow and Oz – Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Love this little geeky couple to death, so much so that when Oz got wolfy with that girl whose name is completely forgettable I was crushed. How dare he break my poor Williow’s heart, but their quirky love made me believe that I could have a relationship that was simple and sweet. Then he left the show, and I was even more crushed because no matter how much I wished he would come back so they could be together again, I knew he wouldn’t. I got over it though because…

Willow and Tara – Buffy the Vampire Slayer

This couple is why I was able to get over Willow and Tara. Their loving and giving relationship helped get over my initial Oz heatbreak, up until of course Tara was killed off in the most horrible and stupidest way. You thought I was crushed about Oz? well at least he is still alive… My heart went out to Williow and I thought it was pretty understandable when she went to the darkside. Honestly when they introduced Kennedy as a love interest I rebelled and hated it. There is only one girl for Willow and that is Tara.

April and Andy – Parks and Rec

I almost went with Ben and Leslie, because Leslie is my fictional television BFF and Ben is Fictional Husband, but ultimately April and Andy won out. Why? because they compliment each other so well and they remind me of My husband and I. April is always supportive of Andy no matter what he does (as long as he doesn’t get hurt) and Andy’s kindness is a great balance to the rage that April can bring. They mesh so well together and stayed together for so long, still completely head over heels in love with each other that I enjoyed watching as their love matured.

Dan and Blair – Gossip Girl

I’ve never abhorred a show more than I did with Gossip Girl. Why I started watching in the first place is a mystery, why I continued watching it even after they went off the deep end with some of the story arcs? Well I think it is because I was temporarily insane, or it could be because I was waiting for these two to get together. Was I the only one who thought they would have been great together since their first on screen meeting? I hope not. When they finally did get together my heart was happy, of course it didn’t last long because the writers of this show do not understand that happy, non abusive relationships are better than toxic ones. Think of the message you are sending to young girls! I should stop before I ranting…

Monica and Chandler – Friends

This is couple I based my future relationships on. Why because they are perfect. I was never happy with the Ross and Rachel will they, won’t they plots and while yes I am happy that Rachel got off the plane. I am even happier that Monica and Chandler decided to stay on London Time. Their foundations were so solid and stable and just plain wonderful. Yes, they had their ups and downs, with not being able to have children and what not but it was okay because they knew they could get through it together. #relationshipgoals

Don’t agree with my list? Have some favorite couples that you love? Let me know!

Currently Watching; Riverdale

So I know I am no longer a teenage girl interested in watching teen dramas unfold. I don’t understand teen angst anymore than I did when I was 16, however I couldn’t say I was not interested in one of my favorite comics becoming a live action drama show based upon murder and mystery.

 

I have long been a fan of the Archie comics. The gang that included Archie, Reggie, Cheryl, Betty, Veronica and my very first fictional crush Jughead Jones. To see it live action on T.V. Set into the modern age is something I could not have passed up. So I booted up the laptop Typed in WB then realized I was old and this station was now called the CW. You must be wondering why I had to stream it, well I don’t have cable.

 

I honestly don’t know how I feel about my beloved characters being played by real flesh and blood characters, how Riverdale will somehow become some dramafest murder mystery, but I got to say I am super surprised that it seemed to have worked out. While it is a little bit weird to see Ross’s son Ben now grown up and being teensy, I got over it quick. It’s entertaining and intriguing enough to catch my attention.

 

Am I going to be glued to the T.V and trying to watch every single week it comes out? Probably not. Will I watch the show when I feel like it and have time? Yes I will. It’s a good show, and that much I can admit.
