Luckylyn June 27, 2014 Share June 27, 2014 I consider the Moonlighting curse to be a myth because I don't think putting a couple together in a reasonable timetable automatically makes the couple and show less interesting. Poor writing was the death of Moonlighting. I think pulling will they or won't they bs for too long can hurt a show worse than letting the couple just be together. That's the reason I prefer Monica and Chandler on friends over Ross and Rachel. It's like writers lack creativity and think the only option is to keep a couple apart for contrived reasons or have them get together and break up over and over again. I loved Ross/Rachel in the beginning but was anti-shipping them by the end of the show. I think writers can lack creativity in how to keep a couple interesting once they get together and blame the Moonlighting curse as an excuse rather than admit their weaknesses as a writer. Another issue, is poorly written love triangles as if that's the only obstacle writers can think of for a pairing. It's so overdone. 12 Link to comment
