Just a week until Valentine's Day and love is in the air. Today we're talking about our favorite romantic couples.
CLARICE: I think I was born a 'shipper' - in fact I was a shipper before there was a word for it, I think. I vaguely recall watching 'The New Zoo Review' [I bet nobody else remembers that show!] and thinking the human guy and girl on it would make a really nice couple. [All the other characters were dancing zoo animals]. I've had hundreds of favorite couples since then, but right now I think my favorite duo is Nick and Jess [Jake Johnson and Zooey Deschanel] from The New Girl. These two don't even know they're a couple yet, but as far as I'm concerned the show is only about them.
JB: The New Zoo Review "where the animals talk and sing"! (Who could forget a hippo, a frog and an owl??.....hmmmm I wonder if that's where the inspiration for Godzilla and Doomsday come from....)
I'm going to pick a classic couple as my fave -- Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert in IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT...((swoon)).
B.E.: The first couple that came to mind when I thought about this week's topic was David and Maddie from Moonlighting. I was only 15 when they first hit the television, but the back and forth between those two was sooo romantic. And now that I'm concentrating, I have to throw the romantic duo in Remington Steele in for consideration. OMG, I wanted to be Laura Holt (and who wouldn't when Remington was played by Pierce Brosnan?)
And, of course, who can forget the tragic pairing of Mr. Rochester and Jane Eyre? Now there's a romance to last the centuries. :swoon:
Tell us Killer Friends: Who are YOUR favorite couples?
