Many if not all of TV’s best dramas and sitcoms are centered around a main couple. For most of the series run, fans are meant to be preoccupied with that central couple and the status of their relationship, yet far too often a “secondary” couple comes along and steals our hearts. It is safe to say that although series creators often had different plans for where to focus their romantic storylines, the chemistry and development between these 10 TV couples stole the show whether on purpose or not. Check it out:

10. Sheldon and Amy- The Big Bang Theory

Since the very first episode of The Big Bang Theory, it was clear that the series was going to center around Leonard and Penny. Over the ten seasons, Leonard and Penny’s on-again off-again relationship has been the focus, but ever since the introduction of Mayim Bialik’s character, Amy Farrah Fowler, fans have been completely distracted by the hilarious couple that is Amy and Sheldon. As pretty much the exact opposite of Penny and Leonard, Amy and Sheldon have provided not only some of the best comedy, but being in a relationship has resulted in Sheldon developing a lot as a character. Before anyone gets upset, obviously Bernadette and Howard are also a great BBT couple, however, no fan could have ever predicted the strides Sheldon has made in the intimacy department, and that would not have been possible without Amy.

9. Callie and Arizona – Grey’s Anatomy

Picking only one other couple that isn’t Meredith Grey and Derek Shepherd who have stolen the show on Grey’s Anatomy was particularly difficult. Over Grey’s many seasons, quite a few amazing couples have come and gone, but when Callie Torres and Arizona Robbins met and sparks flew all attention turned directly to them. After Callie’s history with George, the turn of her sexuality was definitely an interesting twist to breathe new life into the show, not to mention Callie and Arizona went on to have one of the most dramatic relationships of the series.
