The Dark and the Light

Xena and Gabrielle

Jane and Maura

Regina and Emma

Three of my favorite shows ever.  The contrast of light and dark, the innocent and the jaded, the pessimist and the optimist.  It’s most fascinating how all three shows started with characters who were polarized in the beginning, yet as the shows evolve so do they.  The characters in each of these shows almost grew together, each pair reaching a middle ground and an understanding of one another.  I wish the relationships established here could be an accurate microcosm of the world.  Each side, recognizing the sameness in the other, grows to appreciate the differences and the way they add to the relationship. Maybe we would find that our positions aren’t quite so different after all.
