Five Shows that are Great for Date Night

Apr 10, 2013 2 Comments by

A favorite date night for me was to snuggle up with my date, watch a couple of great shows and indulge in some decadent food. Here are a few shows that are great date night viewing…

Date night with your significant other doesn’t always need to be an elaborate outing that costs a fortune. There are some Friday nights that all we want to do is get comfortable and watch a show. Whether it’s a TV show or movie, here are 5 shows that work really well for a night in.


One show that my wife and I love to watch is Parks and Recreation. Date Night copyright permission Annabelle Smyth, Dating Symbol blogWe are also crazy Office fans, but Parks and Rec has been our favorite comedy this last year. Every Thursday night we love watching this show. The characters are hilarious and very diverse. Our favorite person in that show is Ron Swanson and his funny libertarian self. No one wears a better mustache!


The BBC show Merlin is so incredibly addictive. My wife and I are fans of this family friendly retelling of the King Arthur and Merlin story. Colin Morgan, who plays Merlin, is such a great actor. My wife and

I love the interaction between Arthur and Merlin. This is a show that both men and women love.


The movie Sleepless in Seattle is a classic and that will give any guy brownie points. Women love this movie. You can’t go wrong with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. It’s a great mix of comedy and romance.


The Count of Monte Cristo is one of the best books and films ever made. It is full of romance, action, betrayal, and revenge. This is a movie that women love because of the love story and men love for the revenge enacted on the evil best friend, Fernand Mondego.


My final pick for this top 5 isn’t what you’re expecting, but it has been a great date night choice of my wife and I. We love Harry Potter! Harry Potter is one of my favorite books I have ever read. I was grateful that the movies were well done, because we watch all 8 movies at least twice a year. Women and men can both appreciate this series of movies. It’s so fun to see Harry, Ron, and Hermoine grow up together and beat insurmountable odds. If you’re not careful, watching these movies can turn a date night into an all-nighter because you have to keep watching. Our favorite movie is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Seeing the action packed demise of Voldemort and the love story of Ron and Hermione makes it a winner. Make sure you don”t miss out on the action and see what you can do about in your area to see if you can watch all these great shows.

    I am going to have to second the Count of Monte Cristo. It has everything you would need for a date night movie. The combination of thriller with romance is a great watch and at the end of the night you both will have something to say about it. So good!
