Staff Picks: Our Favorite TV Couples
The greatest strength of the TV format is that it allows characters to develop over a length of time. This is not just true with individuals, but relationships between characters. For this reason, as great as movie romances are, they can’t complete with fleshed out TV romances. So, with it being Valentine’s Day, the staff of The Pop Break came together to list off TV couples we love.
Here are our Favorite TV Couples. Fair warning, there are SPOILERS, so read each entry at your own risk. ...
Barry and Iris from The Flash
With all the love floating in the air this month, I think most of it overflows from Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Iris West’s (Candice Patton) relationship on The Flash. I’m sure you’re familiar with Barry as the man who is faster than the speed of light, but you should get acquainted with Iris and Barry’s relationship goals.
The series introduced viewers to a guy who was in love with his childhood friend, Iris, who had no idea romance could even exist between the two of them. After a few seasons of dating other people, being together in parallel universes, and close encounters that were disrupted by alternate timelines, Barry and Iris finally got together by the third season.
Their fondness for each other can be seen as ideal for modern-day “wholesome” TV shows. Barry is a crime scene investigator moonlighting as a multi-verse crime-fighting superhero solely devoted to an interdependent journalist, who is not only romantically committed to Barry but faithful to the S.T.A.R. Labs crew that now includes her brother, Kid Flash. This TV couple’s love story is definitely one worth tuning in for . . . and then tweeting, tumblring, and fan-fictioning about.
A couple of months ago I was considering buying a new city bike since my previous bike got stolen. I was craving nice bike rides to occupy my sunny weekends; the city issued cycles seemed too tax to register for and the bike stands demand a cash deposit along with a return trip. I asked around my WeChat groups for any suggestions and this guy suggested Mobike. At the time of his suggestion, I hadn't seen a single bike in my area. I registered anyway and discovered through the app's GPS that there were a few bikes a block or two away from my apartment. However, about a week or two later, I saw rows of bikes along streets and it was gorgeous! Soon after, I saw competitors like Ofo, BlueGoGo and another bike-share company that's all in Chinese. I tried to register for the others because Mobike was too in-demand and becoming less visible. It didn't work out too well; Ofo and BlueGoGo offer English but failed to approve my registration three times. In addition, my coworker …
After reviewing Flight of the Donn T and being impressed with Donn Thompson Morelli’s sophomore album, Pop-Break was able to get a moment out of the Donn’s packed schedule for a scoop on her latest journey. Flight of the Donn T was released on April 21, 2015 following somewhat of a five-year hiatus from Donn’s last album, Kaleidoscopic. While fans were waiting for more from Donn T and could only nibble on her EP Gramophonica, the songstress had a voyage filled with discovery, new love, and maneuvering around a slight hurdle she needed to overcome in order to deliver her music safe and soundly to the world.
“Kaleidoscopic was recorded and mastered in a week. The day before I made Kaleidoscopic, I didn’t know I was making it,” says Donn T. The album (which was her debut record) was composed with the UK-based French producer DJ Simbad and an international hit as it drew from London electronica and Chicago house while stained with Philly-like flare.
