I love a good bromance as much as the next gal. A good bromance in my book makes for a good television. Sometimes, that might be the inly reason I keep tuning in. Getting to watch a relationship that is based on true friendship alone is just amazing to me mostly because I’m one of those people who don’t have that many ‘true’ friends in my life.
Don’t get me wrong, I have good friends but there is a difference between a good friend and a true friend as I’ve come to realize. So getting to see what a true friendship is like, even if it’s on TV and it’s probably faked in some cases, is amazing.
There are so many bromances on TV today and my favorites by far is that of Dean and Sam Winchester from Supernatural (coincidentally, they are brothers) and Steve and Danny from Hawaii five 0, the remake. You wondering why I love these two more than the others that are out there it’s because they are actually friends in real life.
This is so hard to find when you realize that most lead actors are actually not friends, that they are just faking it. It maybe broke my heart to find out that Murtaugh and Riggs of Lethal Weapon, the remake played by Damon Wayan and Clayne Crawford, are not good friends in the real world. It’s kinda sad and makes me appreciate those who actually are friends even more.
Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles are my favorites. If you get to watch Supernatural, their gag reels, their conventions and follow them on social media, you’d know why and they would be yours too. They are not the stick in the mud, I am rich, don’t talk to me anyhow, scandalous, Hollywood type and that’s refreshing. I guess not living in Hollywood and getting caught of in the celebrity life works for them.
I love that they hangout in real life which is awesome, they go golfing and boat rides together, they practically live next door to each other and their families hang out together which includes their children, who go to the same school and have sleepovers, their wives and their parents.
Another reason I love them is that they are both free and act like themselves where ever they are, even on the red carpets. They can be silly and rather than hide that fact, they actually lean into it.
Alex O’loughlin and Scott Caan are the next on my favorite bromance list. Steve and Dani have a wonderful onscreen and offscreen relationship. I especially love their carguments, well I love their arguments in general, it’s always silly and they make me want to tune in next week for the next episode.
They argue about everything, from how they drive to money and food just like real brothers. I love that they give each other advices and I especially love the episode where they had to live together to surveil a suspect and also when they were both trapped underground after a bomb went off because it got them closer and that’s the first time they said they loved each other (this was after they survived the bomb attack), it was amazing, sincere and awesome.
I guess connecting instantly on set, being jn each other’s wedding, having the same amount of kids (two boys, one girl; two girls, one boy), being in a bar fight and winning and just being silly gooses as in the case of Jared and Jensen and also being one day apart in your birthdays and raising your family in Hawaii, as if the case of Alex and Scott, is enough reasons to be best of friends and having a good bromance.
