Love your Jisbon/Olicity comparison! Great points. I’d love to see you compare how many shows have succeeded in sailing their ships vs. terribly failing. Because everyone talks about the bad versions: Moonlighting. Currently on TV, we’ve got Bones, having a great run with their main characters as a couple, Castle too. (I honestly think old shows like Moonlighting shouldn’t be raised up as an example, as they were pre-internet. Shipping has changed so much!)
Glad you enjoyed the post! I admit I sat on it for awhile after I wrote it, waffling about whether to put it up or not.
I think you’re totally right about the whole Moonlighting argument. Whenever I have this conversation with friends, I find myself debating it from three different perspectives. Be warned, this is a long discussion post so people might want to get coffee first. LOL.
This week has inspired me as an Olicity fan. While I realized that I had not taken the time to do an Olicity article in a fair amount of time, I had a special request from kripnatic to tell the story of how Oliver and Felicity fell in love, from my point of view. Happy Birthday, Krithika!
Warning…super long post!
