SideReel's Top 10 Favorite TV Bromances, Part 1 - Featured

House - House & Wilson

House and Wilson have become the most interesting "romance" of sorts on House which was probably done very purposefully since House is incapable of being nice to women and having any sort of real emotions, and Wilson is overly emotional, but still always fails in his love life. This has made them the perfect odd couple as they quip, they squabble, and they just plain entertain us and balance each other to perfection!

Chuck - Chuck & Morgan

While Chuck, the show, quickly showed us it was going to have a great balance of Chuck's very ordinary family and work life and his new adventurous spy life, his relationship with Morgan made this show and our love for Chuck Bartowski grow more quickly than we could've imagined! One moment Chuck is risking his cover and life for Morgan by boxing Morgan's unconscious self up to get him away from confused villains, and the next Chuck and Morgan are sitting in their underwear playing video games. They are adorable, hilarious, and show a profuse amount of man-love that they profess for each other to anyone who might try to threaten the other's life, their relationship, or thier nerd herd statuses!

Flight of the Conchords - Bret & Jemaine

FOTC's Bret and Jemaine are debatably the top most couple-tastic of our fav bromances! This hilarious comedy band duo live together in a tiny apartment, share a bedroom (with separate beds), fight over their low finances, hang out in fleece pajamas, get jealous over girlfriends and often date the same girl until she chooses one and then ultimately dumps that one because of the other guy... and so on. While jealousy may get the best of them, lucky for us, they almost always make up by the end of those too short episodes and the ridiculousness and sweetness of their bromance carries on!

The O.C. - Ryan & Seth

The O.C. showed us just how perfect the cool tough guy and the hilarious insecure nerd could be together if only given the chance... to live together because the nerd's lawyer dad brings the tough kid home from juvie. Ah, such a typical bromance beginning! Ryan may have resisted Seth's nerdy, needy ways at first, but they quickly saw that they very much needed each other. Seth gained some confidence, Ryan learned life wasn't always so impossible, and both of them learned to lean on each other, and be hilarious together - aw.

Burn Notice - Michael & Sam

Yet another bromance pair incapable of successful romantic relationships - I'm starting to see a trend! These two rekindled their friendship over Michael needing Sam's help to figure out who burned him. Most of their time is spent squabbling over what side jobs they should take, what mistakes they're making with the women in their lives, and how to do a job, big or small correctly, all while Sam cracks open another beer from Michael's fridge, and Michael pops open another of his dearly beloved yogurts.

haha footley. I've watched FotC from the beginning and have seen their HBO special and just until a couple of weeks ago I thought his name was Jermaine. But yeah, definitely no "r".
Niiiice House manip, whoever made it. Definitely my favourite same-sex romantic relationship. JD and Turk are a very close second. They may overcome H/W if House continues to suck as much as it does now. I have high hopes for the finale, however, since it's being written by Doris Egan.

I'm assuming this is just for airing shows, but Lucius Verenus and Titus Pullo from HBO's Rome make one of the all-time best pairs on TV. They should top this list, especially since they started out literally wanting to kill each other and evolve continually. They're a throwback to the glory days of manhood in movies and TV, when men would kill for each other but never utter a single syllable of emotion.

Definitely JD and Turk also Christian and Sean on Nip/Tuck, Mike Seaver and Boner in Growing Pains.

Dude, Seth Cohen was anything but insecure. He might have been an outsider, but he was obsessed with himself! (With good reason, what an awesome character...)

one bromance that is really outlooked but i must protest that they be heard. I believe one of the greatest bromances ive ever seen is on Boston Legal with Denny Crane and Allen Shore who are as outrageous as the love they display for life and each other
