List Rules Vote up the current TV pairs that are greater than the sum of their parts.


Some things are just more enjoyable with other people and right now there are so many television shows that are better because of how two characters interact. These famous duos make every episode twice as enjoyable or intense thanks to how they squabble, flirt or fight together.

Maybe these current tv characters have a bromance like Steve and Danno of Hawaii Five-0 or a plain old romance-romance (however tumultuous) like Betty and Jughead in Riverdale. There's even a combination of the two; Legends of Tomorrow's John Constantine and Sara Lance are demon-fighting friends first and sometime lovers when the time is absolutely the worst for it.

Soulmates, siblings and spirited rivals, from sci-fi shows to sitcoms, there's magic when two television characters have an undeniable chemistry. Jokes are funnier, the drama is deeper and how the duo grows together over the seasons is so irresistible you wish you had friends like them.

What current TV show duo is the most dynamic and makes for the best television today? If we forgot a famous current TV duo, be sure to add them to the list!
