Shortland Street, the long-running New Zealand prime time drama series, revolves around the private and professional lives of the main characters who work at Shortland Street Hospital.  By nature of the storyline itself, the main theme of every episode is in some form or fashion, relationships, love, and/or sexuality.

This show has been both praised and criticized for its tendency to constantly push the social envelope and feature scenes, details, and story-lines which may be considered controversial, such as non-traditional sexual relationships, professionally inappropriate relationships, and graphic depiction of other mature content.

In order to complete your assignment, I encourage you to watch just one episode of the show and focus on the regular characters (those who work at the hospital or their immediate relatives).  Whether you choose to focus on a more traditional concept of "love" and whether or not it exists, or simply go with what is presented and write your own review of how love is depicted on screen, you certainly will not lack for availability of material.
