The fine folks at Me-TV decided to take a look at The 10 most timeless TV bromances that all friends should aspire to. Their list is a good one. Here are my three favorites from their list (and my thoughts), followed by some that didn’t make the cut but should have.
- James T. Kirk and Spock – ‘Star Trek‘ came in at number 8. I would have put them in the #1 spot. Kirk and Spock’s friendship was never in doubt despite them often having different points of view. Probably the most “equal” friends on the list.
- Andy Taylor and Barney Fife – ‘The Andy Griffith Show‘ came in at #4 and would have gotten my #2 spot. Another great example of male friendship.
- Ralph Kramden and Ed Norton – “The Honeymooners” got the top spot on the Me-TV list. Ralph and Ed were great friends although Ralph wasn’t above taking advantage of Ed when it served him best.
Here are some bromances that I would have included…
- James West and Artemus Gordon – “The Wild, Wild West” would have been in my #1 or #2 spot.
- Matt Dillion and Festus Hagen – “Gunsmoke“.
- Jerry Seinfeld and George Costanza – “Seinfeld“.
- Walter White and Jesse Pinkman – “Breaking Bad“.
- Sheldon Cooper and Leonard Hofstadter – “The Big Bang Theory“.
- Howard Wolowitz and Raj Koothrappali – “The Big Bang Theory“.
