There is nothing better than sitting down after a long and tiresome day, grabbing your popcorn and watching your favorite TV show with a friend, loved one or just enjoying your own company. Movies and TV shows are the things we look forward to coming out every year or every week. We connect with the characters, crave for the story lines and feel every emotion when we watch them. While Halloween is months away, it is never too early to start planning for our costumes and what better way to commemorate and cherish our favorite TV characters than to be them for one night? Grab your significant other and read on to find the best couples costume for you based on your favorite on-screen characters.
