TMP Television Edition: Romance

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.
Today we have a TV show special with romance as the topic!

#1 Skam France

This is a pretty tough topic for me because I’m not a big fan of romance. I have yet to see Skam France but I saw so many quotes and images on tumblr, and it looks brilliant.

#2 Lucifer

While Lucifer is not the first thing you’d think of for romance TV shows, it does feature of my favorite ships: Deckerstar which is Lucifer and Chloe.

#3 Riverdale

The only other show I could think of for this topic is Riverdale. It’s full of romance, heartbreak, and drama. The shows is crazy but the ships are golden.

What’s your favorite romantic TV shows? Let me know in the comments!

  1. You got me this week. I’m 0 for 3 and actually the only one of these I’ve heard of is Riverdale. I’ve been mildly curious about it even though I was never the biggest Archie fan but just haven’t had the chance to catch it yet.

    I’m a big fan of good romantic comedies and through the years have watch many which made it tough to get down to three so I went with three whose formats were quite different from each other.

    The Nanny (1993-1999)-Fran Fine (Fran Drescher) is working in a bridal shop in Flushing, Queens when her boyfriend kicks her out in one of those crushing scenes. What is she to do, where is she to go? She’s out on her fanny. So it’s over the bridge to the Sheffield’s door, she was there to sell make-up but the father saw more….she had style, she had flair, she was there! That’s how she became the Nanny. And for the next five years Fran and her widowed commitmentphobe boss Broadway producer Maxwell Sheffield (Charles Shaughnessy) flirt, fight and fall in love while she raises his three children and causes dozens of calamities assisted her dizzy friend Val (Rachel Chagall), brassy mother Sylvia (Renee Taylor), forgetful Grandma Yetta (Ann Morgan Gilbert) as well as Niles, the butler (Daniel Davis) and Max’s brittle, cynical partner C.C. Babcock (Lauren Lane) who share a love/hate relationship while she too pines for Maxwell.

    Pushing Daisies (2007)-Pie maker Ned (Lee Pace) has the ability to bring dead things back to life with his touch. He yearns for his childhood crush Chuck (Anna Friel) who he has brought back from the dead but at a cost. They cannot touch or Chuck will perish. While they try and find a solution they work with private investigator Emerson Cod (Chi McBride) and co-worker Olive Snook (a scene stealing Kristin Chenoweth) with Ned using his abilities to solve murder cases. Quirky, unique series was cancelled far too soon.

    Love, American Style (1969-1974)-Comic anthology series that each week presented a series of vignettes featuring the various trials and tribulations of falling in love, marriage, falling back in love etc. With a constantly changing cast the show provided an early start for many future stars including Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton, Bernadette Peters, Burt Reynolds, Martin Sheen and many others.


    • I never really was a fan of The Nanny which is probably for two reasons: I was too young to get most of the jokes and I only saw it on German TV, so I assume to the original English version is better.
      Pushing Daisies is such a great show that is highly underrated.
      Hadn’t heard of Love, American Style up until now but it sounds really cool!


  2. Skam France, despite relying too much on cheating plots, is beautiful and very romantic. Season 3 was probably my favourite, but they did an amazing new never-seen-in-the-SKAM-universe for Season 5 with a character loosing their hearing. Can recommend! haha

  4. I haven’t seen any of these. I knew Lucifer would be a bad boy..of course, who has redeeming qualities when he meets the detective. I just never felt intrigued enough to watch this show. I don’t have Netflix so Riverdale is one show I wouldn’t mind seeing even though these squeaky clean kids are anything but that from this interpretation of this comic strip.
