Some things are simply more pleasurable with others, and there are so many television series right now that are better because of how two characters interact. Because of how they bicker, flirt, or fight together, these legendary duos make every episode twice as enjoyable or exciting. Maybe these contemporary television characters have a bromance like Steve and Danno from Hawaii Five-0 or a plain old romance-romance (however stormy) like Betty and Jughead from Riverdale. There’s even a mix of the two: Legends of Tomorrow’s John Constantine and Sara Lance are demon-fighting allies first and lovers only when it’s absolutely necessary. There’s magic when two television characters have an unmistakable connection, whether they’re soulmates, siblings, or passionate competitors, from sci-fi series to comedy. The jokes are funnier, the drama is deeper, and the way the duo grows together throughout the seasons is so compelling that you wish you had friends like them.
