By now it comes as no surprise to you that I prefer fantasy over reality, and although will they, won’t they couples in real life are exhausting, they make the best storylines in TV series.
Here are my favourites:
Joey & Pacey (Dawson’s Creek)
Series 3 and 4 of Dawson’s Creek are the best purely because of the Joey and Pacey plot – he bought her a wall, watched her while she slept (in a non-creepy way) and bought her chocolate after they actually slept together.
The writers of the show did write and film two endings when Dawson’s Creek reached its final season – and though it was always believed that Joey would end up with Dawson, we all got the finale we wanted.
Blair & Chuck (Gossip Girl)
Never have there been two characters more perfect for each other – the Blair and Chuck love story was full of twists, turns and scheming a-plenty – but despite princes, enough peonies to last a lifetime and a heartbreaking trade, it finally happened.
Three words, eight letters. One word, three letters.
Dan & Serena (Gossip Girl)
It had to be Dan and Serena – six series filled with so many on/off moments, but in the end all was revealed with Dan inventing Gossip Girl to make himself known to the girl of his dreams.
You’ve got the love Lonely Boy, xoxo.
Ross & Rachel (Friends)
The original will they, won’t they couple. There was closure, prom videos, being on a break and babies – Ross and Rachel were each other’s lobsters.
She got off the plane. Yay!
Tim & Dawn (The Office)
Just phenomenal. I was a little late to The Office party, but the Tim and Dawn story completely broke my heart. I’m glad I watched it all in one go as I don’t think I could’ve coped waiting each week.
This scene is sheer brilliance, enhanced by one of the greatest songs ever – Only You. Here’s to holding out for my own Tim.
