Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and with the “romantic” holiday quickly approaching, I thought it best to embrace the flowers, chocolates, cards and gift-giving day by focusing on some of our favorite current TV bromances (since my bromance list goes on and on, I’ve only included a select few).
After all, who doesn’t love it when men are so tight that they can share their thoughts, feelings, emotions and even hugs with one another? I don’t know about you, but it just brings warmth to my heart.
So, forget about those beloved TV couples (not really, but just long enough to read this feature), and let’s take a moment to reflect on why these men are not only beautiful, but why we also adore their relationships so much.
1. Dean and Castiel, ‘Supernatural’
As a ‘Supernatural’ junkie, for me, Dean and Castiel are the epitome of a TV bromance. Ever since Season 4 when Castiel graced us with his angel presence, he’s bonded with Dean. Whether they’re hunting demons, trying to close the gates of Hell, or tackling Lucifer, they still remain best friends. Oh, and I think Crowley said it best when he dubbed Dean and Cas Laverne and Shirley.
2. Sherlock and Watson, ‘Sherlock’
You can’t beat the bromance that is Sherlock and John Watson on ‘Sherlock,’ amiright? Not only are these two grown men current besties, but they were destined to become BFFs from their very first encounter. Yes, sometimes Sherlock isn’t the best at showing his sentimental side, but there’s no doubt he cares for Watson. After all, let’s all relive that moving Best Man speech Sherlock delivered at Watson’s wedding.
3. Tony and McGee, ‘NCIS’
From Tony and McGee getting arrested together to Tony dubbing McGee “Probie,” among other loving names, to McGee rescuing Tony from falling to his death in a parking garage, these two very special NCIS agents are all about the bromance. They’d probably never admit it, but Tony and McGee are meant to be, even if they are completely different. But, you know what they say, opposites attract.
4. Ryan and Esposito, ‘Castle’
It doesn’t get better than Ryan and Esposito on ‘Castle.’ And, of course, I have to include an amazing and hilarious cop duo on this list. Whether they’re joining in on Castle’s antics, or Ryan’s busy with his wife and new baby girl, or Esposito is off being a ladies man, Ryan and Esposito will always be BFFs. Like their crime fighting skills, these two are unstoppable when it comes to their bromance.
5. Damon and Enzo, ‘The Vampire Diaries’
For ‘Vampire Diaries’ fans, this might not ring true as the most popular bromance on the bloody good series, but, as of late, Damon and Enzo are my new favorite badass duo. Yes, they repeatedly find themselves in deadly and villainous situations, but once you’ve spent years together with the Augustine society, which tortures you continuously, you develop a bond that is somewhat unbreakable. Might I add that Denzo makes one attractive bro-tastic pair.
6. Nolan and Jack, ‘Revenge’
Despite all the lying and “revenge” going on in this ABC drama, Jack and Nolan are pretty tight-knit. Yes, Nolan might have lied about Emily being the real Amanda Clarke, but from the get-go this well-groomed duo have shared a fondness for one another. It’s an unlikely friendship -- Nolan, the fashionable, scheming, computer genius, and Jack, the bar owner with a good head on his shoulders -- but it works.
7. Mike and Harvey, ‘Suits’
You know you’ve found true bromance when a badass super lawyer like Harvey Specter let’s you work for a firm without even holding a law degree. Nothing says BFF like a little lying about where/if you went to law school. Despite all their disagreements, Mike and Harvey possess an everlasting bond. Sorry, Louis, you’ll never get in between this fearsome duo.
