The 6 Greatest T.V. Couples, By The Decade

Standard

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…

THE FIFTIES

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…:*) 

THE SIXTIES

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…:-) 

THE SEVENTIES 

THE BRADYS

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! 

THE EIGHTIES

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…

THE NINETIES

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!
