SideReel's Top 10 Favorite TV Siblings, Part 2 - Featured

Gossip Girl - Dan and Jenny

Dan and Jenny are by no means perfect children individually. Jenny especially, as a character, tends to piss me off (then again, she's a high school girl, so maybe this is realistic). However, together, I find that Dan and Jenny are adorable siblings. They rarely fight and both seem to legitimately care about each others' well-being. Jenny, from early on in the series, did everything she could to help Dan in his lovelife with Serena. Additionally, Dan knows how to get all brotherly when someone like Nate Archibald takes interest in his little sister.


One Tree Hill - Lucas and Nathan

So these two are only half-siblings, but who would have guessed back in Season 1 of One Tree Hill that the two would become friends (and Lucas a regular presence in his now-nephew's life)? Though Lucas and Nathan started off as the biggest of enemies, it became evident that their shared common father of Dan Scott - possibly the worst father to ever appear on television - was enough to bring the two together. The two are now not just half-siblings, but genuine friends.


Prison Break - Lincoln and Michael

Let's not forget how this series started. Lincoln was arrested (but he was innocent!) and Michael, without question, figured out how to break Lincoln out of prison. This was complete with a giant tattoo of the prison-escape route. Then, Michael committed a crime himself (bank robbery) so that he could find himself in the identical prison as his brother and the escape could commence. And that was just in Season 1. The brothers since have stuck together through even more...


Supernatural - Sam and Dean

Sam and Dean Winchester have to have the best brotherly banter on television right now. The slightly more sensitive (and troubled) Sam and the more sarcastic Dean make up a perfect and wholly entertaining supernatural crime fighting duo. They've rescued each other from death more times than I can recall and almost certainly would not be nearly as successful if they weren't working as a team.


Friends (1994) - Ross and Monica

Though Ross and Monica Gellar frequently exhibited a rivalry between one another, as Monica took issue with Ross being their parents' favorite child, I still always adored their relationship. They were ultra competitive, as demonstrated in the image here from the episode "The One With the Football", but what brother and sister aren't? Though the two were not necessarily the closest when they were younger, as they aged, they became much closer, as many siblings do.

I'd like to say Lincoln and Michael because I mean who would go to prison for the sake of their brother? Well apart from Michael, but then theres Sam and Dean.
Who would sell their soul and go to hell for the sake of their brother. Man, now that's what I call brotherly love.

Um, how could you leave Bright and Amy from Everwood off this list? Their comedic timing was perfect ("Oh my god, you like Hannah!" "I will smother you with my bare ass cheeks if you say a word about this.") and they fought a lot and didn't really share much common ground, but still had this awesome bond. Or what about the Donnelly brothers from The Black Donnellys? That show was way too short-lived and absolutely genius and the way the brothers fought and pissed each other (and the audience off) and yet the whole story revolved around their need to protect each other was brilliant. Without those two this list is invalid. I mean, really? Annie and Dixon from 90210 top Amy and Bright or the Donnellys? That's one topsy-turvy world there.

What about Seth and Ryan from the O.C. - true not genetically brothers but those two were adorable.
And then Vinnie and Drama from Entourage. Drama's hilarious, when he wants to take care of Vincent as his career comes to a low point while Drama has an all-time high!
What about Bart and Lisa Simpson? Or are we only talking humans?
