No Sun and Jin? Nope, they decided to die together and leave their kid without parents. Selfish idiots. No Homer and Marge? I love that they love each other no matter what, but Marge is a serious doormat in that relationship, always cleaning up after this self-centered buffoon that I can't find that healthy. Quirky is good. Destructive or one-sided . . . not so much.
So here's my list of my favorite TV couples, beginning with:
10. Meredith and Derek, Grey's Anatomy
Let's not mention how it all ends, shall we?
9. April and Andy, Parks and Recreation
C'mon - they were going to name their kid Burt Snakehole Ludgate Karate Dracula Macklin Demon Jack o' Lantern - or 'Jack' for short.
8. Clarke and Bellamy, The 100
I love a good reformed bad boy story, and when you mix it with a frequently murderous good girl, it's magic. They're not officially a couple yet, but c'mon . . . we all know it's getting there. I ship them SO hard.
How cute are they?? Seriously. Most adorable couple EVER.
6. Roseanne and Dan, Roseanne
I might be dating myself with this one, but they were just the generic, all-American sort of family. You never questioned the love, no matter what they were going through.
5. Temperance and Seeley, Bones
One mega-smart woman and one street-smart guy who isn't threatened by a mega-smart woman. I love how they embrace all the hard things to love about each other.
4. Steph and Lena, The Fosters
Their relationship is who I want to be when I grow up.
"Until the sun rises in the west and sets in the east . . ."
Talk about an unlikely pair - and theirs was a love for the ages.
2. Emma and Killian, Once Upon A Time
And finally, my #1 pick:
1. Pam and Jim, The Office
