Top five romantic shows to binge-watch this Valentine weekend

Valentine weekend

Love is in the air, and for me, it smells of home cooked food and wine so far in the Valentine weekend. But if you are planning on watching some cringeworthy T.V shows here are USA TODAY’s top picks:

The Mindy Project

Mindy Lahiri played by Mindy Kaling who portrayed Kelly Kapoor on The Office (US) is the rom-com-loving protagonist of the show. Mindy’s love life is a rollercoaster ride, but her unshakable devotion in love makes her sail through the hardship of finding the one.

Chewing Gum

Chewing Gum is a pleasing, sex-scene guaranteed British romantic sitcom. The show revolves around the life Tracey played by Michaela Coel, an early-20s woman who grew up in a practicing Christian family, but voluntarily forces herself to burst the bubble by simply having sex. As Tracey steps into the world of dating games, she encounters some slapstick situations.

 Broad City

Brutally honest adult stuff!

Abbi and Ilana two Jewish American women in their twenties, working in low paid jobs in New York City consistently changing romantic and sexual partners. But the true love story is between these two friends, who share, like and comment on each other’s good, bad and ugly moments.

A Walk to Remember

Nicholas Sparks adaptation about a popular boy madly in love with a lonely grief-stricken girl. Started by Mandy Moore and Shane West the film is perfect for those who deny reality. However, if you are aged less than 15-16, then tears will roll down by the end of the movie.

Thelma & Louise

This Ridley Scott timeless masterpiece depicts the life of two women who are on the loose after shooting an attempted rapist. It reflects the consistent struggles women face in their lives in general, and also the fight to attain equal importance in Hollywood.
