The Top 10 TV Kisses

In honor of Valentine's Day, we rounded up ten of our favorite on-screen smooches.

Kevin and Winnie on The Wonder Years

Aside from the fact that Kevin looks prepubescent in this episode, his first kiss with Winnie really was pretty special.



Roseanne and Sharon on Roseanne

ABC almost didn't run this episode—filmed in 1994—because of this kiss between Mariel Hemingway and Roseanne Barr. But 30 million viewers tuned in to watch the important television moment, which turned out to be a small but important step toward the acceptance of same-sex couples on television.



Angela and Jordan on My So Called Life

The first kiss they shared turned out to be not-so-magical, so this lip-lock was a nice and romantic follow-up.



Buffy and Spike on Buffy the Vampire Slayer

As the entire town of Sunnydale falls under a spell of truth-telling and sing-song, the slayer kisses a rebel vampire who actually has the capacity to love.

Kate and Sawyer on Lost

Perhaps the most frustrating yet gratifying kiss on the island.



Chuck and Sarah on Chuck

Watching this one makes this week's episode even more depressing.



Matt and Julie on Friday Night Lights

Winning the game and the undying love of your girl? Matt, you've totally got it made.



Maggie and Joel on Northern Exposure

Who started it? Who cares?



Bones and Booth on Bones

Thank you, mistletoe, for making it happen.



Ross and Rachel on Friends

He's her lobster!



Happy Valentine's Day! Which TV kisses (good, bad, or otherwise) would be on your list?

Buffy and Spike is the best and I also think there should have been one on here with Buffy and Angel.

LOVE!!!!! the Bones kiss. It was way cheesy how it came about, but I still adored that it happened. And this behind the scene clip is just great to see the actors' enjoying their relationship

Jim & Pam on The Office...right before Pam says she doesn't feel the same way about him (which was a LIE). http://iamnoahjames.com/

In no particualr order... Sydney and Vaughn's first kiss on ALIAS. Any of the Crichton and Aeryn kisses on Farscape, especially the one in 422 when they're in the boat.. Any of the few that Mulder and Scully shared, especially the one in the finale. Doug and Carol on ER. Josh and Donna's first kiss on The West Wing. Luke and Lorelai on Gilmore GIrls. Pacey and Joey on Dawson's Creek. And, even though they were possessed at the time, the Sheppard and Weir kiss on Stargate: Atlantis.

Are you kidding me?!! How can you make a list of famous television kisses and NOT include this one? Are your memories that short or was there no TV in your world prior to 1990?

#1. Chuck and Sarah ♥ without a doubt. We know they they're in love denial big time these days because the writers hate us.#2. Booth and Bones are going to hook up as the kids say, it's just a matter of time.

I like your list but my top 4 would have included:

Farscape, Aeryn-Crichton all their kisses are made of win.

Supernatural, Jo-Dean in 'Abandon All Hope'(so sad :( ).

South of Nowhere, Ashley-Spencer's first kiss.

Heroes, Claire-Gretchen's first kiss.

I'm really happy Chuck and Sarah are on there

How about Maddie and David from Moonlighting? How about Laura and Steele from Remington Steele? How about Meredith and Derek? How about Carrie and Mr. Big? I also liked Mark Greene's goodbye kiss to Susan? Felt bad that they never got together. How about Dan and Vanessa from Gossip Girl? I mean after years of being friends they might be a couple now.

Well interesting lsit but i think there were a few better ones that were left out.

That FNL kiss so doesn't belong on that list. No house/cuddy or pam/jim kiss means this list is incomplete.

Loved the Bones/Booth kiss but COMPLETELY HATED the Buffy/Spike and Kate/Sawyer kisses!!!!!!!! Spuffy and Skate are a few of the worst pairings in history!
Reply

Yes! Booth and Brennan are on here! Their kiss was EPIC!

What about Dawson and Joey from Dawson's Creek?

House/Cuddy and Tara/Willow get my vote for best TV kisses.

The Mulder & Scully kiss in the series finale (the one in his cell) has to be one of the hottest on TV - even if it was a little dark. Darn, I miss The X Files...

IT HAS 2 BE BOOTH AND BONES

Beth and Mick on Moonlight. What a mistake it was to cancel that show. I wanted to see where that would go.
Reply

chuck & sarah's first kiss was amazing, but not even close to logan & veronica's first kiss. how come it's not on this list, or were you one of the bunch who didn't watch the best show on tv?!!
Reply

Reply

Booth and Brennan ftw! And thanks for including Winnie and Kevin! So sweet! And classic Rachel and Ross! :)
