Just A Lot Of Really Good Kisses, TBH

We woke up this Saturday to the news that there is Discourse About Kissing, which honestly is a nice relief from the other kinds of news we’ve been greeted with over the past few months. We are united in our opinions about this important subject, in that it is Good, Actually, and especially on TV!

And so, of course, we felt it incumbent upon ourselves to contribute to the rich body of gif(t)s out there with our own list of Best Pop Culture Kisses –

1. Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling at the MTV Movie Awards

K: OMG YALL
I decided to rewatch it
It still gives me a FULL BODY CHILL

T: GOD
C and i were talking about this on our romcom thread!

K: Ryan balancing Rachel easily on his hip and ONE ARM

T: She LEAPS up into his arms

K: Rachel looking up at the lights and stripping off her jacket

T: WHAT THE FUCK TO BE FULYL HONESST

K: The bit where he fucking GRIPS A HANDFUL OF HER HAIR
What the ever loving fuck
They timed it with the crescendo of she will be loved!!!
She looks so dazed and disheveled right after
“Look….. it was my pleasure”

C: The best kiss of all time

T: Better than the notebook

2. Nick and Jess on New Girl

T: Can i also contribute the first new girl kiss
When he’s like I MEANT SOMETHING LIKE THIS
and then he grabs her and kisses her and there’s NO BACKGROUND MUSIC

K: Oh my GOD!!!!!!
When he grabs her elbow
When he kisses her again gently after the first long kiss
PLEASE

T: This is V IMPORTANT

K: “I meant something like that” how about NO!!!!

3. Jake and Amy on Brooklyn Nine-Nine

And Amy stunned into silence with her eyes shining
Be QUIET

T: MMM!!!!!!
I say eloquently

T: i know y’all don’t watch the good wife but can i submit a good wife elevator kiss

K: I don’t know who they are but I cried

T: It’s. so effective

K: The way that scene was shot
Him pushing her hair away with his hands

T: The good wife is honestly so good at the longing and pining and sexual tension

K: Her opening the door for him
Symbolism!!!!
The doors finally closing for good as opposed to the punctuated door openings of the lift

T: When she opens the door and smiles at him!!!!!!!!!!

Wow there’s so many good tv kisses
