After last year’s Top 20 TV Couples, this year I’m making it a countdown. Numbers 20 to 16, and 15 to 11 are already posted, so here are the numbers 10 to 6…
10. River Song & the Doctor (Alex Kingston & Matt Smith) – Doctor Who
While he’s not my favorite Doctor, she’s my favorite “wife” and probably my favorite companion as well (at least for Matt’s Doctor, because she as a tough competition in Donna). For a highly asexual character, the Doctor sure gets his way with the ladies, going as far as to actually marry River Song. The amazing thing about them is not even what they do as husband and wife, mainly because they hardly see each other, but the great and unique chemistry that Alex Kingston has with her onscreen (and a lot younger) husband, Matt Smith. This makes them my favorite couple in Doctor Who!
“I can’t let you die without knowing you are loved — by so many and so much — and by no one more than me.”
“You are always here to me and I always listen. And I can always see you.”
“They engineered a psychopath to kill you.” “Totally married her!”
9. Sheldon Cooper & Amy Farrah Fowler (Jim Parsons & Mayim Bialik) – The Big Bang Theory
Well, well, well… What a Valentine’s Day episode that was! What a kiss, Doctor Sheldon Cooper! Ok, this is a very different kind of couple, mainly because they have been together for 3 years and shared a great amount of 3 hugs, 3 kisses (but only one real), 1 spanking session and 1 virtual “Dungeons and Dragons” sexy time. Still, we know that Amy deserves a lot more (poor girl), and I do think that Sheldon will step up, in his own quirky way.
“I present to you the Relationship Agreement. A binding covenant that in its 31 pages enumerates, illuminates and codifies the responsibilities of Sheldon Lee Cooper (hereinafter referred to as the “Boyfriend”) and Amy Farrah Fowler (hereinafter referred to as the “Girlfriend).”
8. Robin & Barney (Cobie Smulders & Neil Patrick Harris) – How I Met Your Mother
This season of HIMYM has been mainly about them, oh, and the Mother off course! It’s their wedding weekend, and so far so good. We do know they get married, we already saw some images of after the wedding (Robin dancing with her father), and I’m hoping that it’s a happy marriage. Barney has proved so far that he’s ready for this big step, that he loves her more than anything, he turned from womanizer to a hopeless romantic… so cute to see!
Some reasons why they are so perfect for each other:
7. Lois & Clark (Erica Durance & Tom Welling) – Smallville
I appreciate these 2 even more since I saw the Man of Steel… I do not like that Lois Lane! Maybe because I like this one so much… yes, Erica Durance was everything I expect to see in Lois Lane: seriously bad-ass, sassy, smart, fearless, supporting, etc… and she’s all of this because of her man, her Clark! And I think Smallville nailed this. Not only was their chemistry off the charts, but they really made each other better. Lois and Clark (this L&C) are by bar my favorite coupling in any Superman story.
“I wanted these vows to be perfect, but perfection’s a hard thing to get your hands on. But life is meant to be a little messy. And when it comes to love, it’s like my dad always said when it comes to the army. You only sign up if it’s the only thing you can ever imagine doing, and Clark I can not imagine spending a moment of my life without you, so I promise that I will always have your back as you will always have mine. You’re my best friend, you’re my home, you are my true love and I am yours and will be forever.”
“I, Clark Kent, take you, Lois Lane, to be my companion, forever. With you by my side I will never be alone. Though the world sees a strong and independent woman, I’ve never known someone with such gentle grace and more pure heart. When I’ve been lost you’ve always been there to bring me back, so on this day, at this moment, I pledge the rest of my life to you. You’ve always believed in me, and I believe in you. When you believe in someone it’s not for a minute, or just for now, it’s forever.”
6. Marshall & Lily (Jason Segel & Alyson Hannigan) – How I Met Your Mother
This, so far, has been a tough season for the Eriksen clan. But the important thing is that they love each other and they will make it thru… And they’re staying in NYC!
“Marshall, I love you because you’re funny, and you make me feel loved, and you make me feel safe. And for our anniversary, you gave me a sweatshirt that says: Lily and Marshall: Rockin’ It Since ’96. Kinda wish I was wearing it right now, because it smells like you. But the main reason I love you Marshall Eriksen, is…you make me happy. You make me happy all the time”
