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!

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

What Show Would You Bring Back?


I thought I’d try something different, and hand the reins over to the readers by posing this question:

If you had the power to bring back any show, and you could only pick one, which would you choose?

Would it be one that wasn’t given a fair chance, like Firefly? Or something like Friends that had an excellent run, but new episodes would be some good comfort food for the cold months?  Maybe a series that felt unresolved when it ended, like Veronica Mars?
