This week's Thursday Movie Picks is TMP Television Edition - Rivalry

---



I have been looking forward to this theme. Remember we had a similar one for movies with TMP #144 and I thought we must have a TV one as well since there are plenty of fun rivalries on TV. I'm going with some slightly older series and some very new ones that I like.

Buffy vs Faith - Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997 - 2003)
I haven't seen this in the longest time, and I can't remember exactly why Faith became bad, but she did and she and Buffy battle it out at some point.

Damon Salvatore vs Stefan Salvatore - The Vampire Diaries (2009 - 2017)
Damon hates his brother Stefan but still sort of loves him too and they keep competing for the same girls. Damon has the best lines as well, he is the master of sarcasm, directing it and his bitterness often at Stefan, the more guilt ridden brother.

Miles Elliot vs Himself - Living with Yourself (2019 - )
This is a new dark comedy about Miles who is struggling at life and decides to go to a spa to relax and become a better person but instead finds himself to have been cloned and now have to compete with his clone on which one of them gets to live his life.

Peyton Hobart vs Astrid Sloan - The Politician (2019 – )
The series follows students competing to become class president. I really enjoyed this, I found it funny and I actually expected this series to be much more mean spirited. I mean look at other Ryan Murphy series like Popular, Glee and Scream Queen...the meanies in them are super super mean. In comparison despite this being about politics, school politics, it is less mean than those other series.

  2. I've seen your first three picks. I loved Buffy as a kid and enjoyed The Vampire Diaries when I was still watching it but I just couldn't with Living with Yourself. The concept was so interesting but the execution was dreadful. What a shame.

    1. Living with Yourself - I like it fine, funny and quirky. The only thing is the ending, I thought it was clear who the father was or am I missing something?

    1. That's great...I think my last two picks are too new for most people to have watched them.

  5. I'm here to testify about Mr John Blank ATM Cards which can withdraw money from any ATM machines around the world.. firstly I thought it was scam until I saw so many testimony about how Mr John sent them the ATM blank card and how it was used to withdraw money in any ATM machine and become rich so I decided to risk the opportunity I contacted him also and I applied for the Blank Card to my greatest surprise I have used it to get 10,000 dollars. maximum withdrawal daily $1,000, Mr John is giving out the card just to help the poor. Hack and take money directly from any ATM Machine Vault,If your interested kindly contact him directly on his email (johnlopez1945@gmail.com)
