I am so happy about this. I know it’s because of us
obsessed faithful Alex fans, but I never thought I’d see the day when my favorite vampire topped a list like this. Click on the pic to go to the site, but if you don’t feel like it, this is what it said:
“TVGuide.com Readers Name the Best TV Couples: 1. Topping readers’ votes, Moonlight‘s Mick and Beth deliver romantic tension you can sink your teeth into.”
Well, this just proves how great the show was. Even years later we can’t get enough of that vamp. And the building romance between Mick and Beth was so amazing. It’s no wonder they are the top couple. (I just can’t tell when this poll was done, if it is newer or older. Didn’t see a date anywhere. Sorry if it’s old news, but it was new–and exciting–to me.) 🙂
I agree with Alex that stories have to be character driven. He pushes for the character side of things even now in Hawaii Five-0. It was that character aspect that drew us into Moonlight. Mick tugged at our hearts because of all he’d been through and all the angst he carried. It’s no wonder Beth fell for him.
Now don’t get me wrong. I love action, too, but if we don’t have characters to pull for then what’s the use. I use this approach when writing. Character first, action second. At least, I try to. I hope it is working like I intend. Hmmm…sounds like something good for a future post.
So tell me why you loved Moonlight.
