Bickering couples are the bread and butter of the sitcom world. Whether it’s the eye-rolling chubby husband with the nagging out-of-his-league wife or the on-again-off-again couple, viewers are often forced to wonder why these characters are together and whether or not they actually like each other.
While there are a lot of things to love about the cult classic, Happy Endings, its subversion of this trope definitely makes the list. Look no further than Brad (Damon Wayans Jr.) and Jane (Eliza Coupe) and you’ll see a genuinely hilarious couple that also happens to really dig each other. Viewers may not have been able to always tell whether they were angry kissing or regular kissing, but somehow you always knew that these two were going to make it.
Happy Endings may have ended, but the love still remains. If anyone can convince us that romance is not dead and buried, these two can probably do it.
