First I wanted to thank you all for checking up on me. My back is better but I still can’t lift or pick anything from the floor.
Standing still for more than 10 minutes is also difficult; but walking with proper shoes (bye bye heels) is actually pretty enjoyable and ibuprofen helps a lot.
Have I ever told you I’m a sucker for romance ? When February rolls in , I can’t help but fish for chocolates and binge on romance. My easy go-to solution ? Love on screen.
My heart pounds, my breath stops and serotonin invade my system the second the kiss happens.
So, this week, I’m suggesting you guys to list you favorite onscreen kisses, be it on TV or on the silver screen. What smooches makes you swoon, sigh, howl or cheer ? Are there any lips lock you watch over and over ? Have you had the pleasure to see two characters you’ve been rooting for finally find love ? OR are there kisses you wish you’d see on screen ?
Please tell us so we can all enjoy a dose of romance and get a good awww session.
And here’s my list of favorite onscreen kisses :
Veronica and Logan, Veronica Mars
Tension was on the rise for a couple of episodes and, even if the romance between these two characters wasn’t in the original plot, the obvious chemistry between the actors pushed the writers to take the Logan/Veronica relationship seriously. Lucky for them, with such complex characters, it provided enough conflict for the 2 following seasons and the 2014 movie.
Castle and Beckett, Castle
Fans of the show have been rooting for this moment since the very fist episode. I like this kiss scene because it contains everything I love : romance, action, a little spy business and a writing that perfectly sums up each character. You can see the dynamic of the relationship just by watching this kiss. Castle isn’t afraid if his feeling but he tries to hide them because he’s noticed Beckett’s reaction : fear.
Kate and Alex, The Lake House
The emotional tension preceding the kiss is excruciating as both characters are separated 2 years apart ( yes you read right) and they literally fight death to be together, so when the kiss happens, it’s a huge relief.
And Keanu Reeves.
Burke and Cristina, Grey’s Anatomy
Another relation written into the show after the production team noticed the chemistry between the actors. I love how « grown up » the scene is. No fluffy declaration, no fake conflict. Just a mutual understanding that it’s time to move on to the next level.
Jack and Ianto, Torchwood
I’m a huge John Barrowman fan, and any onscreen kiss of his could end up in this list but my favorite has to be in Torchwood, with Ianto. The latter usually is the shy one. In this episode he makes the move after Jack tells him he loves him. And that’s the relationship engine. Jack makes the first step and Ianto always responds.
So, now it’s time to show us which onscreen kisses you fancy. Pictures or video appreciated 😉
