Favorite TV couples

I almost went with a Friday the 13th post, just to be contrary--but I try to only be contrary with my husband., so I'm talking TV couples today!
In no particular order these are some of my faves:
Veronica Mars and Logan Echolls
Veronica Mars

I was so surprised when they first kissed. I totally did not see it coming. And then I kept waiting for it to be a trick he was playing--because he was so very, very bad. But turns out, he really loved her. And in the Season Four in my head (since the show got axed in three), they get back together. Don't try and change my mind either.

Jack Devereux and Jennifer Horton
Days of Our Lives

Maybe I just like couples that argue all the time. Jack and Jenn were my fave couple in the late 80's early 90's...back when I worked nights and could watch soaps during the day. I loved the fact that they were so opposite and so obviously wrong for each other. I got a little weary of all the strange adventures on deserted islands and wilderness scenes...but whenever he accidentally let his vulnerable side show my heart would break. I really love their chemistry, but I don't think they are on the show anymore.

Buffy and Angel

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

I was never a Spike fan. Sorry fans. Angel and Buffy just...well...he's another one who breaks my heart. He was so much more tortured. I wonder if she's done being cookie dough yet.

So...who are some of your favorite TV couples? (you probably have more than me, I don't watch much tv)

    Lucky and Ricky Ricardo for me. Or, moving further into the present, Ray and Deborah Barone.

  2. Booth and Bones from Bones, Liz and Max from Roswell, Max and Logan from Dark Angel. Oh, oh, and this is such a close call, but, Phoebe and Coop. I mean, I lovvvved Cole, but Coop is way hotter. (Yeah, I'm totally crushing from his old show *sigh*)

    Of course, at the time, I loved Angel and Buffy. Honestly, after a while, I didn't think she deserved him. She went stupid.

    Great post, Gwen! Even though now I'm depressed since I had to remember all these shows that have been canceled. Grr! *shakes fist*

  3. Ditto Lanie mostly - Booth and Bones are my current favorites, and I love Robin and Barney from How I Met Your Mother, even though they don't know they're a couple yet. I was actually more of an Angel/Cordelia fan to be honest. I'd have to say my all time favorites, though, were Laura Holt and Remington Steele.

  4. I'm an Angel girl too. That whole thing broke my heart. Now I'm really going to go old school and say one of my favorite TV couples was Vincent and Catherine from the '80's show Beauty and the Beast. I was addicted to that show. I never thought living in a sewer looked so good. Is it any wonder I ended up going to school in NYC? *sigh*

  5. Oooh, I'm going to have to disagree. Buffy and Spike all the way! I loved Angel when he was on, but after he left, she grew up. And Spike, flawed, cool, smartmouthed Spike, was perfect for adult Buffy.

    Also love: Josh and Donna from West Wing, Brian and Justin from Queer as Folk, Sonny and Brenda from General Hospital, Jack and Ianto from Torchwood, Charlotte and Harry from Sex & the City, and House and Cuddy (I wish!) from House, M.D.

    Josh and Donna from West Wing.

  7. Loisa--we must be opposites! I was a Jax and Brenda fan myself.

    JAC--I loved Angel and Cordy too--until that strange season where they ruined her character.

    I never watched Beauty and the Beast--but it's in my netflix queue.

    And Lucy and Ricky!!! And Bones and Booth!!

  8. ROFL good ones!! I'd also say the people from Moonlighting--Maddie and Addison, I think their names were...? Well, I liked them before they hooked up--so much tension there! :D

  9. Ross and Rachel! I can't believe I'm the first to say them.

  10. Buffy and Spike, all the way!

    And Chuck and Ned from PUSHING DAISIES.
    And Helo & Athena from BATTLESTAR GALACTICA.


  11. Great post and I have to totally agree that of course Veronica and Logan would have gotten back together in seaon four. They were meant to be and I loved him.

    I have to go with Buffy and Spike though. I do love those flawed bad boys!

    I like Sawyer and Kate from Lost, too. Jack just does not really do it for me...he seems a bit whiny for me.

    Happy Valentine's Day!

    Michael and the doctor from Prison Break.
