For this post, I’ve decided to take a different turn and focus on something that seems to dominate my life lately.  Yes, that is television.  I can’t say why, maybe because it is a nice change from the real world or maybe because it has the ability to make me forget all the things going on in mine…I don’t know why, I just know (lately) I am obsessed and fixated.

Let’s be honest, there are a great deal of “crappy” shows that dominate tv right now and usually they focus on doctors, lawyers and cops.  To me, its really been hard to find characters that I like and respond too.  There have been a few over the last few years, and that is why this post is going to focus on the best 3…tv couples.  To me, these couples are just perfect.  They make me want to stay tuned for more and more and more.  I love watching them together!  and I love the chemistry that the actors are able to provide to make the characters/couple more realistic and likeable.   There will probably be a lot of people that would not agree with my best 3 but that is ok because this is my own opinion and for those that don’t agree or have others, please post your comments – I would like to see what other couples you might like.

So, here are the Best 3…TV Couples:

1.  Jax and Tara (from Sons of Anarchy)

2.  Eric and Sookie (from True Blood)

3. Simon and Alisha (from Misfits)

My first best pick should be obvious, as I’ve listed the Sons of Anarchy in this blog before (Best 3…TV Shows (on tv right now) and one of the reasons that makes the show great is the couple of Jax and Tara.  They were high school sweethearts, she leaves and then comes back and they can’t deny their attraction to one another and they fall in love all over again.  Trust me, if you have not seen the show or them, please do.  There romance is far from perfect…but somehow they just work and that is what makes them the best.

My second best 3 pick gave me some of my most favorite tv moments ever.  Putting these two together was pure genius.  Yes, I am team Eric.  Sookie and Eric together is this last season of True Blood was simply great (and the best season in my mind).  Their chemistry was amazing.  It pains me to think that they may not be together in the upcoming season.  There is just something about them that just makes their time together perfect.  All I can say is that if you were not fortunate to catch some of their scenes together, I encourage you to tune in…not only are they on a great show but together they fired up the season!

The last couple is from a show that many people might not be familiar with.  Like Sons of Anarchy, I have mentioned this show before (Best 3…odd bu excellent British tv shows) and it has been only recently (thanks to my awesome sister) that I have discovered the show and my last best 3 pick.  That honor goes to Simon and Alisha.  They were a couple that you would never imagine together especially after the first season but through great writing they come together.  I won’t go into a lot of details but they have a great story that will go on and on.

Thanks to all the people that posted these awesome videos!

With this blog, I promised the Best 3 of Everything out there in the world.  I am bouncing from one topic to the next with no consistency and that is just what I intended.  My posts are things that might strike me at one moment in the day and I just run with it.  After my last post of Best 3 days of the week, I thought about what I do on some of those days and that included watching TV.

So, here are the Best 3…TV Shows (on television right now):

1.  The Vampire Diaries

2.  Sons of Anarchy

3. Community

There are some honorable mentions: The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, The Amazing Race, The Voice, The River (which I do like because its different) and NCIS: LA.

Let’s talk about #1 best pick – The Vampire Diaries.  There is so much to say about this show.  It is great – that is the first thing.  It is filled with amazing characters (and great actors such as Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Joseph Morgan and the rest of the cast).  The episodes are great.  This show has a great way of not leaving you guessing which just annoys me in shows that seem to drag you along.

For those that are going to hate me for saying this – I am rooting for Elena and Stefan.  They belong together.  I’ve loved them together since Day 1.   It broke my heart when Stefan became the Ripper – so sad but I like how the last few episodes ***spoiler alert*** explains that he is off human blood!  Yeah!!!   Damon is so good looking but not right for Elena.  I’m also loving the Caroline/Klaus storyline – I hope this is explored – maybe Caroline can love him like he needs to be loved – that is my hope.   There is so much more to say but I will leave it there for now.

As for my second best, I love Sons of Anarchy.  What a great and original show.  Its nice to see a show that isn’t focused on lawyers, doctors or cops.  It has superb acting from Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal, Maggie Siff, Ron Perlman and the rest of the cast.  The episodes are full of everything from romance, to violence to drama to comedy.  It hooked me in from its very first episode.  I was so glad to hear that it is getting another season.  Yeah!!! SAMCRO

As for my last pick, Community is one of those shows (such as Chuck – which I loved – R.I.P. Chuck) that is really funny yet cannot seem to gather the audience.  It is clever, hilarious and like no other show on the tube.  Please, let’s hope NBC gets smart and doesn’t get rid of it.

If you are reading this and have never seen the shows I mention, I encourage you to check them out.
