Nominees Wanted: TV's Best Chemistry!
It’s been a week since we had an image of Bones‘ David Boreanaz on PopWatch (and even though Abby West’s Mini TV Watch will post in a few hours, I can’t wait). So, tell us: Can Boreanaz (Special Agent Seeley Booth) and Emily Deschanel (Dr. Temperance Brennan) compete for the title of TV’s Best Chemistry? To be clear: “Chemistry” is not limited to “sexual tension” (although I’m willing to bet the clip below, from the Bones pilot, is what scored that series its original pickup). In our book, it also describes the shared sense of timing that makes Calista Flockhart (Kitty McCallister) and Sally Field (Nora Walker) a joy to watch on Brothers & Sisters; that’s earned James Spader (Alan Shore) and William Shatner (Denny Crane) each Emmys for Boston Legal. Because we’re looking for the best chemistry in TV history, feel free to nominate classic duos like The Dukes of Hazzard’s James Best (Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane) and Sorrell Booke (Boss Hogg). We’ll even accept James Best and the basset hound that played Flash, if you can make your argument in 75 words or less…
UPDATE: Here’s Abby’s recap of Monday’s Bones.
