Straight male couples are all the TV rage
In the process, they examine pairs like William Shatner and James Spader from Boston Legal, Matthew Perry and Bradley Whitford from Studio 60, Julian McMahon and Dylan Walsh from Nip/Tuck, among others. They even include Michael Scott (Steve Carell) and his search for a male friend on The Office in this article as evidence of this "trend."
There are two little flaws with this article, though, which I'll mention after the jump.
1. It contradicts itself by also examining male buddies on TV throught the medium's history, like those on Starsky & Hutch and The Odd Couple, and
2. They don't include TV's ultimate quasi-homoerotic male buddy couple: J.D. and Turk on Scrubs! Of all the straight male couples on TV, their relationship is the most "intimate," bordering on almost girly. The fact that this article doesn't even mention them shows me how low Scrubs is flying on most people's radar these days.So, is this a trend? Who are your favorite TV buddies (male or female)? Let me know in the comments.
