There have been numerous great TV storylines that just complimented the plot and moved it along to greatness. Sometimes, experimenting with storylines leads to good things for the plot. One example is Chandler and Monica hooking up. This was supposed to be a one-time fling. But the fans loved it so much that the writers decided to make them a couple. And look how revered they are in the TV couples rankings now. However, not all storylines work. Some are just bad choices, some are put to feed the airtime, and some are down to just bad writing.
