Best Summer Bromances

Friday, Aug 19, 2011

Ah, the bromance. The deep – nonsexual! – abiding love/friendship between dudes. It’s become one of TV’s greatest, most enduring and probably realistic tropes. Nowadays, bromances are everywhere, whether they’re the basis of whole series (“Entourage”), reluctant (“Hawaii Five-O,” “The Vampire Diaries”) or simply the by-product of a good working relationship (“White Collar,” “House”). Occasionally, bromance even occurs between actual brothers (“Supernatural”).

Whatever the case, the end result is usually an awesomely hilarious good time for viewers – not to mention some serious fan fiction fodder for certain people. You know who you are.

That being said, here are our picks for Most Amusing Summer TV Bromances. Feel free to suggest your own favorites.


Eliot Spencer and Alec Hardison in “LEVERAGE”: The hitter (Eliot) and the hacker (Hardison) are a true odd couple – which is precisely what makes their bromance so entertaining. They never seem to know what the other is talking about, they have zip patience and they delight in putting each other in awkward situations. But, whenever they’re on assignment together, they get the job done, no matter how silly that job might be. Whenever they’re separated, which often means “doing something dangerous” – as in last week’s episode where Hardison gets buried alive – they’re never more relieved to see each other when it’s over. Don’t believe the bromance? Check out this Tumblr blog devoted to it, complete with animated GIFs.
