Right now I’m thinking of my favorite TV couples. And I don’t mean characters I would like to see together (there are plenty of those). I mean legitimate couples on TV right now who make me sigh and say “aw.” So here we go with a Valentine’s Day list, dedicated to my own sweetie.
Roses are red. Violets are blue. Here are three TV couples from whom we can all take a cue.
- Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe) and Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones) of Parks and Recreation. She’s a cute nurse and his body is a microchip. What’s not to love here?
- Holly Flax (Amy Ryan) and Michael Scott (Steve Carell) from The Office. They are so right for each other that it can be painful to watch.
- Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) and Avery Jessup (Elizabeth Banks) of 30 Rock. These two Reaganites are a real power couple. And now they have a Canadian baby. But they promise to treat it as they would a normal human baby.
I just noticed that all of these couples are from NBC. What do you know? It turns out the network that couldn’t make a good sci-fi show to save its life is pretty darn good in the romance department.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
