Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Season 6)

If you’re a fan of Fitz and Simmons, you won’t want to miss their epic romance continue to play out in what turned out to be an entertaining and fun season 6.

Now, if you’ve never seen this superhero series before, and you’re looking for light entertainment with great female characters and charming TV romances, this is an excellent choice to start binge-watching. The final season premieres next year.

My Sister’s Keeper (Bonus)

Okay, so this movie isn’t a romance or a period drama but it’s a lovely female-driven film based on a popular book. So, if you’re looking for a girls’ night in, you might enjoy this heartfelt drama starring Cameron Diaz.

The Lord of the Rings trilogy of movies based on Tolkien’s wonderful fantasy novels are some of the best films ever made. These fantasy costume dramas have romance and Romanticism aplenty and shouldn’t be missed. They also can be watched time and time again. So, enjoy!
