Kyle's Career Filmstrip: TV Series and Movies

Feb 13, 2011

Hearts Afire

Why does TV have such a hard time with relationships? It’s not you — it’s the medium. But love is there, if you know where to look.

In honor of Valentine’s Day on Monday, let’s celebrate five couples who embody romance in all its guises, from mature commitment, to passion, to crazy-mad drama.

Prime-time TV often seems fixated on how opposites attract, but real-life rarely plays that way. Eric (Kyle Chandler) and Tami Taylor (Connie Britton) of “Friday Night Lights” (which returns April 15 for its final season on NBC) go together, well, like a struggling team of underdogs and a championship ring. This is a partnership of equals. They might pull at each other occasionally, but they’ll never break apart. The actors are so good and their rapport so authentic, you can understand why some viewers are convinced the two must be a couple in real life.
