Chasing waterfalls

Despite the title, “Hopelessly in Love” isn’t tailor-made for date night. This limited series focuses on famous couples who didn’t live happily ever after. The first episode features Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes and Andre Rison, whose squabbles led to their mansion burning down. Not exactly the kind of fire most couples are looking for.
