Two Guys

Has anyone else noticed that so many current TV shows feature two hot guys?

I mean, "hot" is subjective, of course. And sometimes it's not "hot" in the physical sense, but more "appealing" or "attractive." But just take a look:

Clark and Lex, inspiring feverish slash fiction all over the Internet.

Jack and Sawyer. Or Sayid and Jin. Or Charlie and Locke. Or Desmond and Eko. Or any combination of the above, with more to come this Wednesday. This is the show for every woman!

I already talked about Supernatural. We've got the cocky, protective, no-fear sexy older brother, and the confident, reluctant-turned-driven, don't-call-me-little-brother. Both are smart and funny and cute.

These two are more in the "appealing" category, but they have excellent chemistry together, which I think is a driving factor in any TV show's success. Their friendship is so complex, yet so solid, it makes me want to be their friend.

Dichotomy--the absentminded genius professor who feels too much, and the take-charge FBI agent who won't let himself feel at all, which makes it worse.

What other shows contain two hot guys?

Edited to add:
Trish reminded me in the comments that I'd neglected to upload this pic and mention these guys--probably the hottest brother team on TV (at the least, tied with Dean and Sam):

Two or more arguably hot guys on StarGate, StarGate Atlantis, Battlestar Galactica, and Heroes. Alas, only 1 on the Office.

Stargate!!!!!! Indeed!!!!!!!! Actually on that show there are 4!

Hi Natalie, how have you been? : )

Natalie J. Damschroder said...

I'll give you a big yes on Stargate, though I don't watch it anymore, and even if you don't count RDA (who was the only reason I got Showtime in the first place, to watch the original series :)

Hey, Robin! How've you been?!

NCIS! Mark Harmon and Michael Weatherly.

Natalie J. Damschroder said...

Oh, yes, Mark Harmon! I considered watching NCIS when it started, just because of him, but I don't like procedurals that much.

Since I'm way behind on the shows, can I mention movies?
Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom
Viggo Mortenson and Orlando Bloom (3 if you add Eomer, wait five if you add Faramir and Boromir)
Sean Connery and Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones)
Those are the ones off the top of my head - though I'll probably think about this all day now! :)

Natalie J. Damschroder said...

Hell, yeah, you can! Especially when you come up with such delectable examples!

WarT0rn said...

Doesn't seem to be the other way thou. I wouldn't more than 1 hot girl per show.

Natalie J. Damschroder said...

Yeah, I'd be fine with that, War. You guys deserve equal time. :)

But it has to be SMART, strong, interesting women, not just T&A.

Prison Break -- Micheal (Wentworth Miller) and Linc (Dominic Purcell)

Shoot, Trish, I had a pic for them and forgot to upload it! It allows five at a time and I meant to go back and do the sixth one and forgot. Sheesh.
