Tonight is Emmy night…the evening the world stops and honors excellence in television. As a card carrying member of the television generation, and an unabashed romantic as well, here are my top picks for the greatest t.v. couples of all time, by the decade…
LUCY & RICKY
Despite their separate twin beds, the Latino/Redhead heat between these two was hard to miss…much later in life, I met a real life Lucy & Ricky…my two younger boys’ grandparents! RIP Dorothy & Tony Casas…:*)
MARSHALL DILLON & MISS KITTY
Did they, or didn’t they? I guess we may never know…but we all loved the hint of romance between Matt Dillon and Miss Kitty, a classic Good Boy/Bad Girl attraction…:-)
Mike & Carol…ahhh, the perfect, unrealistic blended family (see, The 80’s, 90’s and 2,000’s)…oh man, did they set us all up for disappointment!
MADDIE & DAVID
Sexual tension as plotline on television…and Moonlightling taught us a little something about that, now didn’t it? Once the golden couple actually begins a relationship, the party’s over…
ROSS & RACHEL
The One That Taught Us That Maybe Our Soulmate Was There All Along…
THE NEW MILLENIUM
MARY & MARSHALL
Partners…Equals…Lots in common despite being opposite on the surface….hmmm…the perfect couple perhaps? We’ll see!
