Huffington Post - about 3 years
Intense feelings of affection are on our radar as we celebrate Valentine's Day. We turn to the cinematic mirror for understated romcoms -- those that illustrate some underlying dynamics of the relationships that survive versus those that fizzle before death do us part. Mere laughs will not suffice. What follows is a minute selection whittled from an infinite one. This post begins with the heartfelt apology that many worthy contenders will be omitted.

[...] it seems Marlowe isn't terribly interested in slowing down the Beckett-Castle wedding train at all. [...] should fans be saving the date for a wedding as we head toward the Season 6 finale?
