7. Sexual Tension

And finally, someone has to want to have sex with someone else – who is typically having sex with yet someone else. There must be sexual tension because there has to be chemistry between cast mates. Otherwise, I don't think a drama would even be allowed to air on TV; the pilot never, ever gets made.

It doesn't have to be overblown, like how everyone is always sleeping around with everyone else in Desperate Housewives or Grey's Anatomy, but you know, a “Huddy” situation is awesome.

So as you can see, I'm picky about my melodrama. It has to be good for me to get interested. Sometimes it takes me a while; I didn't get into Sons of Anarchy until this past season, and now I'm hooked. What's your favorite drama on TV?
