We were hardpressed the other night to think of too many TV couples that had great chemistry. The discussion usually demands that the couple be in the pre-marital stage of their relationship because the writing usually doesn't emphasize romance after that. The Taylors on FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS had a great marriage but we didn't get excited about it.
We could really only come up with three: Ross and Rachel on FRIENDS and Sam and Diane on CHEERS and Jim and Pam on THE OFFICE. The only married couple we came up with predates most of you-Paula Prentiss and Richard Benjamin in HE AND SHE.
And I have never seen a homosexual couple with chemistry on any show--that's too bad.
What other TV couples were believable as lovers? Doesn't have to be a sitcom. Extra points if it isn't? Dramas seem to have more trouble cultivating romance than sitcoms.
RE: Friday's FFB theme on crime novels of the 1950s. To save me from checking out the date of your selection, could you indicate the year it was published in the heading. Thanks!!
