Happy Valentine’s Day from The Televixen!

It’s Valentine’s Day, and there’s nothing I like better than a great small-screen romance. So I thought I’d share a list of some of my favourite TV couples of all time, along with clips of each.

What better way to start the list than with the couple that inspired this post – Lost’s Desmond and Penny! This is a couple that would go to the ends of the earth for one another.:

Then there’s Admiral Adama and Laura Roslin from BSG. I was thrilled when these two finally ended up together. In the words of the Admiral, “It’s about time.”:

You know how they say “love hurts”. In the case of Buffy and Angel, love turns some people into soulless monsters. Even though they couldn’t live happily ever after, I still enjoyed watching any brief moment of happiness, or sadness that they shared:

Everyone else can have the saga of Ross and Rachel, but for me, Friends’ Phoebe and Mike were THE couple:

No list would be complete without I Love Lucy’s Ricky and Lucy. I adore this scene, when Lucy lets Ricky know he’s going to be a father:

Last, but most certainly not least, a little Jack and Ianto from Torchwood. Anyone want to play naked hide and seek? Hubba hubba this is one hot couple!

Who are your fave TV couples? Share your picks in the comments below!

And a very Happy Valentine’s Day from The Televixen!

Fave TV Vamps as Selected by The Televixen

Happy Halloween to all of my TV loving ghosts and ghouls!  Speaking of creatures of the night … what better day than today to pay tribute to my favourite dishy TV vampires!!!

#6:  Bill Compton – True Blood.  One of my newest faves from HBO’s sizzling new series based on the Southern Vampire novels by Charlaine Harris.  Nothing like a vampire that’s also a Southern gentleman.

#5:  Mick St. John – Moonlight.  What is it about a vampire PI living in LA that’s so attractive?  In this case, it was Mick’s undying devotion to Beth.

#4:  Eric – True Blood.  The stunning head vamp that sits on his throne at Fangtasia, Shreveport’s vampire bar, and glamours people to do his bidding.

#3:  Josef Kostan – Moonlight.  Brilliant businessman, best friend to Mick, and womanizing vampire.  What more could you want?

#2:  Angel – Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Angel.  The vampire with a soul.  Once a merciless killer, now a defender against dark forces.  His and Buffy’s love rival that of Romeo & Juliet, Heloise and Abelard, Tristan & Isolde.

#1:  Spike – Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Angel.  He was evil.  He was ruthless.  He ended up lovesick.  He and Buffy had the lust that made buildings crumble around them.  Sexy, sarcastic, and ultimately self-sacrificing, That’s what makes Spike my favourite TV vampire of all time!

Now it’s time for you to share.  Let me know who your favourite undead hotties are/were by commenting below!

Will a Buffy Animated Series See the Light of Day?

During the recent WGA strike, I was missing my favourite shows, and was trying to find some TV on DVD to keep me busy. That’s when my friend Sarah lent me Season One of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Before the advent of TV on DVD, I was quite fanatical about not watching a show that had already started. I had to watch it from the very first episode – or not at all! And that’s the very reason I didn’t watch Buffy. Between school and part-time jobs, the start of the series came and went, not even a blip on my radar. So last November, I watched Season One, and I was hooked! Fast forward to Boxing Day sales, and what do you know, I end up with THE ENTIRE SERIES! And I watched it all by April.

The Buffyverse is still new to me, and I’m not completely “in the know”, but there have been some interesting little deets that I’ve discovered which sparked my interest … most recently, a 3 ½ minute trailer for Buffy, The Animated Series. Originally greenlit by Fox back in 2002, Buffy creator Joss Whedon did not find a network to buy the series. A Facebook Group has popped up, complete with a link to a previously unreleased clip. The group’s mission – to get this series on air.

Check out the video clip over on Facebook, and let me know your thoughts. Who knows? This may actually see the light of day!
