Winchesters all the way... What were you thinking not including them? Their's is the most funny, challenging, thought-provoking, and best to watch. My vote goes to Sam and Dean.

Sam and Dean by far have the best, and most well developed sibling dynamic of any of the shows presented above. They are epic!! :D

ya, i totally agree with the rest. What happen to the Winchesters? They developed such interesting sibling relationship through the 4 seasons. This show is way under-rated. its one of the few hidden gem on television. at least the show is picking up viewers now, too bad there's only 1 more season thou. But the Winchesters definitely have the most interesting sibling rivalry on television.

I have to go with Sam and Dean as well. When you are in a car with them all hours of the day, you are bound to develop a complex sibling relationship.
The second best one has to be Michael and Gob on Arrested Development. Hilarious comedic dynamic with them. Too bad the show only lasted 3 seasons, it truly was a comedic masterpiece.

I love the sibling rivalry in two and a half men - absolutly hilerious!!

Apr 14, 2009 9:10PM EDT

I agree with Jesshayes, I was just about to say Alan and Charlie Harper from Two and a Half Men.

Apr 14, 2009 9:47PM EDT

Geez...DEAN AND SAM WINCHESTER always get left out of everything. what's up with that? I'm glad to see others who have commented make the same conclusion. Team Winchester all the way!

Dean and Sam from Supernatural are definitely a great one, especially lately since they have things about them hidden from one another. *nods* And they are definitely two opposites. A lot of funny moments. xP
Hmm...another would definitely be the Walkers from Brothers & Sisters. All of them are hilarious! xP

I guess we are all thinking the same thing - Sam and Dean :)))

Sam and Dean are the first ones to pop into my head, like practically every one else!
Brothers and Sisters is also an obvious choice (the name kinda gives it away!), but within them i would say that Justin and Kevin are my faves!

No way you are all wrong i mean i love supernatural but come on! everybody loves ramond Raymond & Robert are the best brothers i love the way robert hates that his "little" brother is sooo loved! however supernatural is a close second (love simpson)

in everybody loves raymond, robert is not even always a necessary character. show would loose very little without him. on the other hand try making supernatural without either sam or dean.

I find it interesting that Brothers and Sisters didn't make the list. And what about Little J and Lonely Boy (Jenny and Dan) from Gossip Girl.

Nathan and Peter from Heroes is the greatest sibling relationship in TV/Movie History.

Second I would vote Eric & Laurie from That 70's Show.

I have to agree with the oh-so-many other Supernatural Fans. I agree that Supernatural is an amazingly great show, but I also have to point out that in this topic, it really packs weight because the show focuses so heavily on really only two characters. Sam and Dean.. who are brothers. There are other great shows out there that have siblings relationships, but I haven't seen any others yet that focuses so intensely one a relationship like this one. Some people might get offended that I'm saying the show only really focuses on Sam and Dean (but what about Bobby? you may ask).. well.. there hasn't really been a "Bobby Episode" yet, so although I love Bobby, he still only play's second fiddle. Oh, and the fact that the show is a) an hour long drama as opposed to a sitcom and b) has it's own uniquely traumatic world to push, pull and rip apart our heroes, the writers are able to dig much deeper that most other shows. I mean, really.. how often did you see any real gut-wrenching sacrifices made on Friends? ... that being said.. another pair of brothers that I missed on the list are Niles and Frasier Crane. boo all you want, but those worked really well for a sitcom.

wtf... wat about the winchesters they should be first

Well since it hasn't been mentioned before: SAM AND DEAN!! :P
But seriously they are the first ones that popped into my mind as I saw the topic for this one. Otherwise I still love Michael and Lincoln, Nathan and Lucas were interesting in the beginning but not really anymore.

Umm..Nathan&Lucas...One Tree Hill...Of course..atleast in the first season.

Maybe it's because I'm behind a season on Supernatural...but I just never saw those two as a rivalry so much as a partnership. Yes, they playfully riff on one another...but they never really fight, do they?

Im sorry but anyone who did not answer with Gob and Michael clearly hasn't seen Arrested Development and therefore has an invalid opinion. I suggest you all go here: and educate yourself on what is without a doubt the greatest television series ever created.
