10. Josh and Donna, The West Wing
Ana luuuuuurves The West Wing, and one of the reasons (besides the awesome writing and acting) is because of Josh and Donna. The assistant to Josh’s Deputy, these two had chemistry from the pilot episode. Years of innuendo and tension pass until the final season, when these two finally get together. Awwwww.
9. Joey and Pacey, Dawson’s Creek
Another of Ana’s favorites! Girl Next Door Joey and Goof-off Pacey begin as good friends, but eventually become something more.
8. Ricky and Lucy, I Love Lucy
Who doesn’t love this quirky, hilarious couple? Not only was Lucille Ball one of the finest comediennes the television has ever seen, this groundbreaking show turned the cultural standard on its head. A bi-racial couple with a non-conventional woman going against her husband’s instructions? AWESOME. Their real life chemistry only makes it funnier.
7. Ross and Rachel, Friends
On again, off again, on a break or not–we fell in love with Ross and Rachel from the get-go. Two words: PROM VIDEO.
6. Spike and Buffy, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Spuffy FTW! As much as Angel and Buffy captured our hearts in the early seasons, for Ana and I it really comes down to the bad boy Spike. That tension! The love-hate-sexy thing they had goin’ on was waaaay hotter than any emo-Angel BS.
5. Starbuck and Apollo, Battlestar Galactica
This is a bit of a tough call really–BSG is full of awesome relationships that would melt the coldest of hearts. Personally, I loved Kara and Sam together–he’s not as whiney as Lee, and accepts Kara for the frak-up she is. BUT…then there was ‘Unfinished Business’. Probably one of my favorite episodes of the entire show. I’ll admit to rewinding that last fight and watching the end of the episode repeatedly on the DVR. Even though they were a royal mess together…I still love them. We’ll see how the final episodes shape up for Lee and Kara.
4. Inara and Mal, Firefly
Our favorite space cowboy and companion, by far. Even though the show’s run was tragically, prematurely terminated (thanks a lot Fox), Firefly lives on as one of the most cherished cult series’ ever. Wash and Zoe were cool, the Doc and Kaylee were cute–but it’s all about the beautiful and wise Inara & hilariously heroic Captain Tight Pants Mal.
3. Jim and Pam, The Office
Three seasons full of angst and bad timing, but finally Jam is together at last! And the best part is–even a season deep of them being together hasn’t made them any less heartwarming. Check out this video of some favorite Jim and Pam scenes.
2. Sawyer and Kate, LOST
You knew it was coming. We love LOST, as you’ve probably surmised by now. There are a number of ships on this show that we adore–Jin and Sun (“Jun”) and Desmond and Penelope in particular (“DoPe”–awmygosh they have a baybay and named him Charlie! Guh!). Considering Ana and I were hardcore, unapologetic Skaters (that’s Sawyer and Kate shippers, for the laymen) when we met, we both share a soft spot for the snarky southern confidence man. These two have C-H-E-M-I-S-T-R-Y, ever since that first trek out into the jungle together. Don’t believe us?
“Baby, I’m tied to a tree in a jungle of mystery.” ~ Confidence Man
The infamous ‘I Never’ scene ~ Outlaws
And just for kicks, two of our personal favorites:
1. Mulder and Scully, The X-Files
The ship that started them all! Just last year, Ana discovered the wonder that was The X-Files. Chock full of mystery, conspiracy, creepiness, and intrigue, this show was so great for so long because of the incredible chemistry between Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. LONG LIVE THE X-PHILES! And, because this scene just kicks all ass:
And that’s it for our top 10!
TAG! You’re it:
And of course, whoever else wants to play.
