    27 Times "Love Island" Series 5 Earned An A+ In Entertainment Value

    "I was coming back here to tell you that I loved you."

    I am not joking or exaggerating when I say Love Island UK is one of the best television shows of all time.

    Even though Love Island Series 3 is my personal favorite year of the show, Series 5 is hands-down the most perfect. Nearly every bit of it is masterfully done. If this season had been scripted, it would have won countless writing awards.

    Here are just some of the reasons Love Island Series 5 is arguably the best season of television ever made.

    1. First off, of course, when Tom thinks it'll be interesting to see if Maura is all mouth or not, and her feminism slaughters his misogyny. Oh my god, this is good TV.

    Yeah, the way the men reacted to this whole thing was not flawless.

    2. Ovie. Just all of Ovie.

    3. When Jordan tries to get with India two days – TWO DAYS – after asking Anna to be his girlfriend. Mr. Fucking Boyfriend.

    Anna says, "Mr. Fucking boyfriend, fucking fake dickhead" using air quotes

    Here's more of the whole thing, including Ovie taking India away from everything like the god he is.

    8. What Joanna says to Michael when she gets eliminated.

    9. And Michael announcing he actually does still like Amber after Joanna leaves.
