SO COME JOIN THIS EXTRA SPECIAL CHRISTMAS VISIT FROM THE LONDON OFFICE and help us make our SPECIAL GUEST feel that familiar PINK HEART SOCIETY appreciation of all things CATEGORY ROMANCE related....
And now some unfinished Pink Heart Society business related to last month's HAMPER WINNER!!! We asked the question:
Which couple make up your favourite television romance (or hoped for romance for all you shippers out there) of all time????
Some classics such as Buffy and Angel (Ally votes for Spike there BTW). David and Maddie from Moonlighting - boy that brought back memories. I only wish we all didn't know how much they hated one another off screen ;). And Ross and Rachel in Friends. That one is a great example of a show that didn't lose it's edge or its audience once they got togehter.
A few fabulous soap hopefuls which is too much fun as the whole point of a soap opera is the ever-changing balance of will they won't they! Luke and Laura would be probably the most famous will they won't they and will they again???
And then the sci-fi shows seem to have a whole shipper thing going on too. The likes of Stargate and Battlestar Galactica (which has cruelly been taken off Australian TV mid season!!!) getting lots of votes.
The funniest was the "two skinnies" from the Biggest Loser.
But our winner, is Ellie who was the first to choose Mulder and Scully from the X-Files. Many would say this was the pair who gave "shippers" a home, a name, a voice. Ellie, please email us at email@example.com with your address and all those great prizes are yours!Sharron McClellan's Bombshell HIDDEN SANCTUARY
