Isn't it interesting, the way characters on TV shows routinely sleep with each other, without batting an eyelash (or even creating a subplot) but declaring "I love you!" can be the cause of am outrageous amount of freaked out screen time? Forget the whole question of whether TV shows revel in extramarital sex. Wouldn't it be really cool to see a show where the "I love you" was, first, plausible, and, second, preceded the first act of intercourse? I don't mean to be a prude, and I don't expect everyone to subscribe to my particular mores. I just want the most intimate thing two people can do to be grounded in something for once.
