Spuffy, Bangel, Tillow, Merder, Gizze, Skate & Jate.
Just a handful of tvs most famous couples, these couples have people glued to there screens and in my opinion its for all the rong reasons.
I have never and probably will never watch a show because of that shows couples. I think its silly that spots are choc full of people getting seriously angry at each other because there not Spuffy or Chlois.
Shows are now remembered for there couples. Im going to take Buffy as my first example, what I remember that show for is its excellent storylines and intriuging characters but from several sites it seems that people only remember it for its couples. The big Lost debates are not about The Others or The Black Smoke or O6 theroies they are Jate and Skate debates. Personaly I see the couples on these shows to be the least important storylines.
Now dont get me wrong on shows like Greys Anatomy relationships are the main story arcs and I love that show however on shows like Buffy, Lost and Smallville i think that relationships play far to big a part in the minds of the fans when there is a bigger story to be told.
