Alone this Valentine’s Day? Don’t worry, I’m listing my top TV couples, so you can spend the day watching their romance on screen instead of having one yourself.
Ross and Rachel, Friends (1994-2004) – Ross and Rachel’s relationship has become such a part of pop culture, that other shows look at their characters relationships, and how much they want to “Ross and Rachel it”. In a sense, how far can we drag this out before they get together. Because that’s what David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston’s characters were all about. Everyone could see from the start that they were meant to be, and I think everyone could relate to Ross being “friend-zoned”. After ten years of ons and offs, they finally got together for good, because as Phoebe put it, ‘she’s his lobster”.
