Overall this show gives greater "feels" than Merlin. But because of the nature of the show, the characters and actors often change thus there is no one individual friendship in Dr Who that trumps Merlin & Arthur.

This show might be higher if it took itself more serious. It is by far the most friendship feel comedy I have ever seen!

Same Dr Who type feel. I guess... where everyone loves one character more than anything, and it isn't that the one character doesn't love the whole world back... they do! Can anyone explain this better?

Votes: 10,313

I included this on the list because I can tell it was trying for the epic bromance. I personally could never buy into it for some reason. Maybe it felt too forced. I have only watched the first season so far. It got cancelled after the second season so perhaps it never got better.

19. Forever (2014–2015)

I have only watched the first episode. But the end had such a cute potential for a type of bromance of sorts. This show has also been cancelled but I do intend to watch more, just to see how things play out.

Buffy type feel. Interesting mystery worth watching if you can get into it. It kind of reminds me of a kid friendly similar type to Tru Blood.
