TV breakups

13 TV breakups that were so healthy and mature and 13 that were chaotic as heck

While watching TV shows often catch on the character and imagine us as in the same character in the TV. Our feelings get committed with it, which makes me feel exited, scared, emotional and happy. Watching it transferred to a world away from the actual world and felt every moment of it.

If we talk about romantic movies, some TV couples look so dreamy that we start almost believing they would last forever. However, their break-ups break our hearts too. After becoming emotionally invested in the fictional love life of the character, it’s really heart wrenching to see the couple that decides the different path.

However, there are certain TV breakups that are the picture of maturity, whereas others make you want to break your TV into pieces.

Here are some of the best and worst TV breakups of all time:

1. Alexis and ted (mature) – Schitt’s Creek

Schitt's Creek: Annie Murphy, Dustin Milligan on Alexis and Ted decision |

The breakup scene in this show was totally breaking the viewer’s heart, but still, people loved it.  This felt so mature and realistic. In this show, Ted has been offered a permanent dream job in Galapagos for almost 3 years. The half-hour ends in the scene when Alexis & Ted meet for their last romantic dinner in the cafe as a couple.

There are so many times that’s life takes two people on different paths, and the decision of breakup is painful yet needed, and they both handled it with such grace.

2. Cece & Schmidt ( immature )- new girl

Schmidt & Cece Kiss on 'New Girl,' But It's Not Exactly For the Reasons We  Wanted
