Romance on the show

Life is a good show period.


It has a great main character as well as writing that keeps the show watchable.


The only problem I have is with this relationship between Reese and her boss.

To me it feels a little forced.

I mean its fine that there is no romantic relationship between Crews and Reese, but her boss?

Its just weird to me...

Does anyone else agree?

No, I disagree. I like it. It's just the kind of weird, opposites attract kind of relationship that sometimes happens. It starts with professional respect, which often finds a way round an overt physical attraction, then the physical attraction comes along after. It probably won't last, but I think it is entirely feasible.

I don't feel like they have any chemistry, so it feels a little off, but I like what it's doing for her character, and the moment of humor this week with Charlie picking up the hotel phone for the boss's call was well worth the whole deal! I think they're going for making Reese more feminine this season as she doesn't wear as harsh of clothes or a hairstyle as last season, and I guess this is all part of that feminine yet tough expansion of her character.

P.S. What I really want to see more of is the forbidden romance of Charlie and his ex-wife - now that's chemistry!

I also think the romance between Reese and her is forced. Do you guys remember the first episode where Reese gets cocaine on her and Crews grabs her and gets into the shower with her? There was this moment where she was leaning back into him that had me going WOW! That single 3 seconds had more chemistry than what Reese has with her boss.

Yeah, I totally agree with nikitarae65. That one short sequence had more a genuine feel to it than all the ones with Tidwell. They feel forced and too "written". And why include such a scene if nothing's supposed to happen between Reese and Crews. It just causes confusion. Though Crews got enough "relationships" for another season or two:p
There are other situations that opens up for a closer relationship between the two mains as well. The entire relationship between Reese and Crews changes in the latter part of season two. They generally get more personal. In the episode where the three russians are killed, Reese comments on Crews thouching her to get her attention. But this is all probably just to ease up both characters to the viewers.
Btw, if the whole Tidwell-thingy is just to make Reese appear more feminin, I'm not so sure it's working. Making her more human, ease her up yes, but feminin? Sometimes she comes off more like a testosteron bomb hidden in a female shaped shell..
