I'm about as far from being a "shipper" as can be. (A "shipper," from my understanding, is someone who has an obsession with the romantic relationship of two fictional characters.) However, I like this new relationship between Allison and Jack on Eureka. This change to "couple" is working better for me than any other such on-screen union I can remember. I credit most of it to the wonderful chemistry between Ferguson and Whitfield. Both actors are gifted at delivering quiet, subtle emotions. Perhaps I also like it because it's happening in the context of the altered timeline, and it feels as though it may be doomed (or derailed) for that reason. Both the joining and (if it happens) the breakup, feel organic to the Eureka universe. It hasn't killed the sexual tension, either.
Hmmm, this whole idea is Fringe-tinged, too, isn't it?
(except in this case, I actually like Ferguson and Whitfield more as performers than Jackson and Torv)
Hey, I just noticed that this is my 7,777th post. Must be my lucky day.
