  • Abstract
  • © 2015, © The Author(s) 2015.This study examines the extent to which Spanish youth audiences appropriate television fiction and engage in the acceptance and construction of loving stereotypes. It specifically looks at how they identify different kinds of loving relationships. It also explores the intertextual and extratextual interactions they establish in their interpretations. The methodology undertaken is the focus group, and the sample is university students from four different faculties and universities in Spain. The series chosen as a corpus are two from the United States and one from Spain. Interpretive differences and similarities were studied according to the gender and education of the subjects. Finally, a reflection is made on how youth audiences interact in terms of gender and sexual identity markers in the representations of the loving relationships in the series studied.
