Who's your fav TV couple?

I've just finished watching the 'Mad about You' collection and was reminded of how much I loved the Buchmans. Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt seemed so perfect together. It got me to thinking, who are the great TV couples?

Desi (Ricky) and Lucy?
Mork and Mindy?
Buffy and Angel?

Who's your favourite?

BTW, romantic couples only, so no Batman and Robin or Starsky and Hutch!!

You asking for full-fledged on-screen couples? Because on Lost, I would've PREFERRED Jack and Juliet over Jack and Kate. And you might get a lot of responses like that without more clarification.

Tony Almeida and Michelle Dessler... although on 24, when they stop to do a romance subplot or any sort of subplot, it seems to be in rather poor taste because the characters take time away from FIGHTING A TERRORIST THREAT to deal with romance or petty office bickering or psychotic family members.

Full-fledged on-screen couples. No "Gee, I wish they'd got together" couples.

Some of mine -

Homer and Marge
Sam and Diane (Cheers)

Re: Who's your fav TV couple?



Nip/Tuck has been described as "a love affair between two men" and I thought that was a nice way to put it. Sean and Christian are closer to eachother than they are to any of the women in their lives.

My other favorite is Brenda and Nate from Six Feet Under. From the moment they met, they seemed perfect for eachother.

They were an awesome couple (and so were Niles and Daphne), but my vote has to go to John Crichton and Aeryn Sun!

Another fantastic couple (easily LOST's best and I love Charlie and Claire), but not quite up there with John and Aeryn.
