Let’s Distract Ourselves With Some of Our Favorite TV/Film Kisses

Recommended Videos

Kisses can make your soul feel lighter. I’m not talking about actually swapping spit with someone but, rather, watching two fictional characters make out. So today, when everything feels like doom and gloom, let’s take a moment to look at some smooches to make us a little happier.

Author Robin Stevens decided to bring some joy to the Twitter timeline today, meaning she asked followers to share their favorite television kisses, and now there’s just a thread of attractive people making out for our soul.

From there, Twitter delivered with some incredible choices for best kiss.

(I will note that there is no sass in this next one, for me. I just want Angel, Spike, and Giles to all live together and fall in love.)

But there are so many other kisses out there in the world that make us feel all tingly and maybe make me want to fall in love. I asked the staff of The Mary Sue for their picks from film and television, so let’s take a look at some of our favorite kisses out there.

To start, here is a beautiful video dedicated to the relationship between Brittany Pierce and Santana Lopez on Glee.

Now that you’re in the kissing mood, let’s begin. First, there is Ned and Chuck from Pushing Daisies with their plastic wrap kiss.
