I was reading a post on Veronique’s blog ^1 about television show couples, which inspired me to reflect on the subject matter. I primarily watch comedy shows, which is to say that my list errs heavily towards couples in comedies.
Here are my favourite television couples:
- Shawn and Jules from Psych. Shawn sometimes refers to them as “Shules”.
- Niles and Daphne from Frasier. I am presently rewatching this show. It takes a long time for Niles to express his affection for Daphne. When I saw them become a couple the first time I watched the show, I was so happy.
- Amy and Jake in Brooklyn Nine Nine. I haven’t watched this show in a while, but I recall enjoying the chemistry between the characters and its eventual manifestation in a relationship.
- Ben and Leslie in Parks and Recreation. I haven't watched Parks and Rec in a while. All of the characters are loveable. As I write, I recall there being more couples in the series too! April and Andy, Ron and Diane.
