TV Duos: Wild Card Poll

duooff

In one week, we’ll launch our TV Duos bracket tournament, but first we have to select the 64 pairs of characters who will be competing for favorite TV duo! I’ve already selected 30-some pairs of characters from live-action scripted shows, but I need your input to select the rest!

To keep things fair, we are only including a maximum of two sets of duos from any one show, and no character will appear in the bracket twice. Because of that, this wild card poll will accomplish 3 things:

  • It will be the deciding vote between two duos that contain the same character, for example, whether Hawkeye from M*A*S*H will be paired with B.J. or Trapper John
  • When there are many pairings in one show, it will help me see which one(s) to include
  • It can tell me which shows to eliminate completely

This post also gives you one last chance to weigh in with any additional nominations. Look through both the list and the poll below, and if one of your favorite duos is missing, mention them in the comments! If they’re eligible, I’ll add them to either the confirmed list or the poll. (An ineligible nomination could be a duo with one character already in the confirmed list. For example, in Psych, you could nominate Shawn and Juliet as a duo, but since Shawn is already a part of the Shawn and Gus duo on the confirmed list, that nomination would be ineligible.)

Additional note: While there are romantic pairs in this bracket, that should be only one aspect of their relationship. Duos should have fun together, work well together, and/or have hilarious interactions.

Here, in no particular order, is the confirmed list for our TV Duos Bracket:

Pete and Myka – Warehouse 13
Troy and Abed – Community
Sherlock and Watson – Sherlock
Castle and Beckett – Castle
Booth and Brennan – Bones
Peter and Neal – White Collar
Shawn and Gus – Psych
Kensi and Deeks – NCIS: Los Angeles
McGarrett and Danno – Hawaii Five-O
Rizzoli and Isles – Rizzoli & Isles
Harvey and Mike – Suits
Nick and Monroe – Grimm
Max and Caroline – 2 Broke Girls
Liz and Jack – 30 Rock
Chuck and Sarah – Chuck
Annie and Auggie – Covert Affairs
Peter and Olivia – Fringe
House and Wilson – House
Benson and Stabler – Law & Order: SVU
Jane and Lisbon – The Mentalist
David and Maddie – Moonlighting
Reese and Finch – Person of Interest
Kirk and Spock – Star Trek
Dean and Sam – Supernatural
Mulder and Scully – The X-Files
Lorelai and Rory – Gilmore Girls
Leonard and Sheldon – The Big Bang Theory

Nikita and Michael – Nikita
Laverne and Shirley – Laverne and Shirley
Robin and Much – Robin Hood
Klink and Schultz – Hogan’s Heroes
Meredith and Derek – Grey’s Anatomy
Tony and Ziva – NCIS
Merlin and Arthur – Merlin

Now vote for which ones I should add to reach our final list of 64! Remember, not all of the top vote-receivers will make it in, as two-duos-max-per-show and character-can-only-appear-once rules still apply. This poll will be open for one week, and you can vote for up to 10 duos!

  1. A penguin says:

    Merlin & Arthur?
    The Doctor & Donna? (Or any other companion but I think he had the best duo thing with Donna)

    • Katie Hart says:

      I can’t believe I forgot Merlin and Arthur! They’re on the confirmed list now.

      I added The Doctor and Donna, and The Doctor and Rose to the poll. Would any of other companions be a good choice to add as well? I skipped Amy Pond since I figured it would be more of a trio with Rory around (I’m assuming, haven’t gotten to that part of the show yet myself).

      • A penguin says:

        You could also have the TARDIS? Although I’m not sure if that counts, seeing as she’s a machine most of the time but she did turn into a women on a episode I’ll presume you haven’t seen yet 🙂

  2. Liz Thomas says:

    What about Brenda and Fritz on The Closer?????

  3. mary e. brewer says:

    NATE AND SOPHIE of LEVERAGE are the best

  4. Rabiddogg says:

    Bo and Luke Duke?

  5. Dawn Royer says:

    They didn’t give an option for a group of five, just a duo. Either way Leverage RULES!!

  6. mary e. brewer says:
