7) Sam and Diane, Cheers
The genius of Cheers is that Sam and Diane kiss during “Showdown, Part One,” the finale episode of Season One…and the writers could still pull off their spot-on “Will they or won’t they?” chemistry for years afterward.
How do Jess and Nick measure up? Guys? Sam and Diane don’t end up together. Diane moves to L.A. while Sam stays in Boston. We are not ready for such devastation on New Girl. We need a happier ending than that!
