20. Outlander

Outlander might be one of the most romantic shows ever, but it’s also filled with heartbreak, trauma, and more than a little violence. Don’t go into this thinking it’s going to be all love and sex. You won’t get through the first season before you find out that’s not right at all. But don’t get me wrong, there is still tons of romance. Jamie and Claire are a romance for the ages (literally and figuratively).

The show begins with Claire Randall, a former WWII nurse, visiting Inverness with her husband, Frank. While visiting the standing stones at Craigh na Dun, she touches them and is transported to 1743 Scotland where she is saved and picked up by a group of highlanders from the MacKenzie Clan which happens to include a man named Jamie Fraser.

With an ancestor of her husband’s after her, she must marry Jamie Fraser so she’s under his protection which, as it happens, doesn’t turn out to be so bad after all. Claire and Jamie’s relationship only gets stronger from there as they travel to France and then America over the years.

Despite the fact that Claire has to go back to her time, their love persists and results in a daughter, Brianna, who ends up having her own epic love story.

If you can get through the violence, rape, and trauma, Outlander is one of the most romantic shows on TV right now. It stars Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe, Duncan Lacroix, Sophie Skelton, Richard Rankin, and Tobias Menzies. The first four seasons are available to stream on Netflix.
