Zara tagged me with this one -check out her list here. I agree with several on her list (including Malcolm & Inara, and Buffy & Angel), but I decided to use the "little gray cells" as Poirot would say and come up with ten new couples for us to discuss.
Oooh, just as I was about working on this, Orannia tagged me, too. Her list is here.
Onto my list - in completely random order.
1. Booth & Temperance
They're smart, they're funny, and they've got that zing between them. I like that they're friends first - everything else comes after. Though if you want to study sexual tension, Bones is the show to watch.
2. Gambit & Rogue (or where Nalini proves her geek credentials)
I used to wake up ridiculously early on Saturday mornings to watch X-Men. Gambit was my favorite. I loved the whole "he can't kiss or touch her or she'll suck out his lifeforce" thing - talk about conflict!
3. Laura Holt & Remington Steele
I loved this show. I would watch reruns if the powers that be decided to put them on. Hmm, I see a similarity to Temperance and Booth - Laura and Remington are also a smart & funny couple. But they had they own unique chemistry going on.
4. Allison & Joe
They're so normal and real, and yet the love between them is not something you ever question. One of my favorite episodes is when Joe thinks something has happened to Allison, and when they find her, he literally falls on his knees and just holds her.
5. Spike and Buffy
Okay, I know I said I liked Angel and Buffy, but I also kind of have a soft spot for Spike, too.
6. Wash & Zoe
I liked that these two were in love and so settled about it (ignore the other two guys in the picture *grin*). There were no huge scenes, but you knew they'd do anything for each other. (p.s. you that that thing that happens in Serenity? I've wiped it from my memory).
7. JD & Turk
A million reasons, including - The World's Most Giant Doctor and Hide the Saltine. I miss Scrubs.
8. Charlie & Amita Two really smart people, with a great relationship! I like how at the start, Charlie is the more shy of the pair.
9. Elizabeth & Darcy
You didn't think I was going to miss Lizzie and Darcy out? In NZ, they played the original tv series one episode every Sunday. I sat through six torturous weeks to see these two get their happy ending!
10. Mulder & SkullyChemistry among creepiness!
I think a lot of people have already been tagged with this, so I'm throwing it open to anyone who wants to play. Who are your favorites?
