7 classic TV friendships we wish we had in our lives

Let's thank them for being a friend.

When you watch TV, you almost feel like you know the characters. You know their strengths and weaknesses, and you know how they'll react to certain situations. So when you watch some of the best friendships on TV, you almost wish you were a part of that amazing connection the characters have on screen. 

We're taking a look at the best ride-or-die friendships from our favorite TV shows. 

Which friendship is your favorite?

1. Laverne and Shirley


This duo is the epitome of friendship. They were making their dreams come true together and doing it their way. Just watching the show, you wished you could have a friendship as close as Laverne and Shirley. I mean, they had their own show based off their friendship! It doesn't get more special than that. 

2. Lucy and Ethel


Everyone needs an Ethel to her Lucy (or vice versa). Lucy and Ethel's friendship had the benefit of proximity because they lived so close to one another. Even though they got in trouble a lot, they always managed to laugh about it afterwards.

3. Batman and Robin


Okay, we know. Technically Robin is Batman's sidekick. But that doesn't mean they weren't great friends. Batman and Robin fought crime with stellar chemistry, and epitomized the meaning of teamwork. 

4. Kirk and Spock


Kirk and Spock have one of the most beloved friendships in television because they balance each other out. The duo became close during their five year mission, and even became each other's confidants. Kirk and Spock's friendship might be one of the first "bromances" on television. 

5. Mary and Rhoda


It definitely wasn't love at first sight for this duo. When Mary Richards moved into the apartment she wanted, Rhoda Morgenstern wasn't too pleased. However, the two got over their differences to form a close bond that many of us would envy. 

6. Richie and Fonzie


At first glance, you wouldn't expect Richie Cunningham and Arthur Fonzarelli to be good friends. The former is a wholesome suburban teenager and the latter is a greaser with a rough past. Despite their differences, the two become partners in crime, with Richie pushing Fonzie to do better, and Fonzie loosening up Richie to become more adventurous. 

7. Blanche and Rose


Yes, there were four Golden Girls. And yes, they were all really good friends. But Blanche Devereaux and Rose Nylund were truly a dynamic duo when they got together. No matter what they did, they always had a blast doing it. We wonder if Dorothy ever felt left out…
