Do you have a TV husband? Be honest. We all have a few fictional men that we have decided would make our perfect IRL partner.
This week on The Binge podcast, Rosie Waterland and Laura Brodnik shared their biggest TV crushes, from funny and loveable Jim in The Office to ruggedly handsome Peter Bishop from Fringe, played by Joshua Jackson (yes, that’s Pacey from Dawson’s Creek. Can we have Pacey too?)
But we think there are a few they missed…
6. Jamie – Outlander
We just have one thing to say: season one, episode seven. Do you need another reason? Jamie’s wedding to Claire to protect her and the sex scene that followed was one of the hottest TV moments ever, and we want to marry Jamie, if only for the honeymoon. The episode was directed by a woman, and it shows. The abs and Scottish accent don’t hurt either.
I do. I do, I do, I do, I do, I do...
5. Chandler Bing - Friends
You know what they say about a good sense of humour, could it BE more important? We love that Chandler and Monica had a slow burn, getting together after years of friendship. She grew to love his wit and awkwardness and so did we. We only hope we could be so lucky to fall in love with our best friend, especially if that friend is Chandler.
4. Coach Taylor
Possibly the greatest-ever husband on TV, Eric - aka "Coach" - Taylor was the guiding light of Friday Night Lights, the American football drama beloved to all TV nerds. Eric was the devoted, supportive, protective husband to Tammi Taylor, who is all of our TV wife, and their union of equals is a thing of beauty. Also, at the end he gives up his job to follow Tammi's dream and he NEVER gave her grief about that ever-present giant wine glass. Swoon.
The definition of couple #goals.
3. Dev - Master of None
Aziz Ansari's character is exactly what we imagine Aziz to be - sweet, funny and just a little bit self-centred. But aren't we all? The aspiring actor is always up for an adventure and would happily join us to eat our weight in tacos. He has a child-like innocence that is balanced with his romantic streak. Plus, he's a feminist!
