All-Time Favorite Couples

16 02 2009

As nears the end of its second month (time flies!), I figured it was time to get personal.  Like favorite couple-personal.

One of the biggest connections audiences have to teen dramas is the couple they root for.  Couples are at the core of all these shows, sparking devotion and debate.

To help us get to know each other better, this week I’ll be presenting my 5 personal all-time favorite couples.  If you look closely, you should be able to find a common theme among my choices that explains why I prefer these particular couples. Please share your thoughts–and your picks!–in the comments.

5.  Marissa Cooper and Ryan Atwood (The O.C.)

Part of the initial attraction to The O.C. was the dynamic between the spoiled pretty Marissa and the rough tough new boy Ryan.  The chemistry between these two characters from different worlds was powerful from the start.  Even after they got together, the course of love never did run smooth for Ryan and Marissa.  They broke up and got back together several times during the series, before any promise of a future was abruptly taken away when Marissa tragically died at the end of the third season.  Any argument that they are meant to be failed since they could never end up together.  Still, theirs was a love of passion and pain and I loved every minute of it.

This is definitely one of my favorite couples too ;). Ryan and Marissa had this great connection from the first time they met. Couples like that seem to capture my attention. They were always there to help eachother even though they had terrible communication. I think that is why they were never able to make it work out. Who knows if they would have ever been able to get past their issues if Marissa hadn’t died? I like to think that Marissa changed Ryan’s life. I think after she died Ryan learned to let people in instead of being so guarded.
