2. Completely Evil Mom Character

This lady's only goal seems to be making our female lead miserable. She will do anything to break up the main couple, from evicting them to the classic dramatic slap-to-the-face.

8. Adorable Beta Couple

When the main couple just doesn't do it for you the ever reliable beta couple can make a show tolerable. Retreat to their complete lack of ridiculous drama and be at peace.

9. Everyone is Super Pretty
