TMP Television Edition: Rivalry

Hey, guys!
Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
This week, it’s a TV special featuring some iconic rivalries!

#1 J. D. and the Janitor (Scrubs)

The rivalry between J.D. and the Janitor from Scrubs is one of my favorite things from the show. It’s both emotional and hilarious!

#2 Bart and Sideshow Bob (The Simpsons)

This might be the longest-running TV feud. Bart and Sideshow Bob have been mortal enemies for so many seasons and episode, I don’t think any other show can best this rivalry.

#3 Bette Davis and Joan Crawford (Feud)

The entire first season of the show Feud revolves around the rivalry between movie stars Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. They did a brilliant job capturing the atmosphere and the looks are on point!

  1. I never watched Scrubs enough to be familiar with the characters, could not stand Zach Braff. I know they are beloved but I never got into The Simpsons.

    I liked but didn’t love Feud. The acting was fine, though I felt neither Saradon nor Jessica Lange really captured the essence of Davis and Crawford, but they took too many liberties with the truth of what happened between the two real life women. Still it was enjoyable. Catherine Zeta-Jones however was dreadful as Olivia de Havilland….she was right to sue!

    I went with comedy gold and big soapy dramatics this time out.

    The Golden Girls (1985-1992) Three widows and a divorcee-Dorothy (Beatrice Arthur), Rose (Betty White), Blanche (Rue McClanahan) and Dorothy’s mother Sophia (Estelle Getty)-share a home and a close friendship in Miami. Along with that friendship comes multiple times when the various women were pitted against each other in rivalries for men, bowling trophies or just the plain upper hand. Timeless comedy with four of the best comic actresses ever.

    Dynasty (1981-1989) Blake Carrington (John Forsythe) runs oil giant Denver-Carrington while his glamorous scheming ex-wife Alexis (Joan Collins) and present wife Krystle (Linda Evans) are locked in a constant rivalry which escalates through the years. In the era of conspicuous consumption this show reigned supreme and set the tone for over the top luxury (and shoulder pads!) with Collins leading the way.

    Revenge (2011-2015) Emily Thorne (Emily Van Camp) arrives in the Hamptons and immediately crosses swords with reigning doyenne Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) who feels she isn’t who she appears to be. Her intuition is right Emily is actually Amanda Clarke whose father Victoria and her husband had destroyed years before and now she’s back to extract revenge. Week after week the two go head to head in a rivalry that becomes increasingly deadly as Emily/Amanda seeks to ruin Victoria’s family and life.

  2. I almost chose Bart and Sideshow Bob because he is such a great character. I never watched Scrubs but it looks like it was funny. I do want to see Feud because those 2 really disliked each other and I am all on Bette Davis’s side.
