Episode #58 – Fictional Relationships (and Relationshipwrecks)

Romantic subplots drive so much story in western media.  In fact, romantic subplots might be the single most common trait among all genres of storytelling in all forms of media.  Love is always going to be part of the action, whether it’s comics, tv, or film. As in real life, in the fictional world, some couples work better together than others.  With so many examples of popular couples in the media, the panel will examine which romantic relationships work best and which don’t.
