I’m back with another 5 Fandom Friday! This time we’re talking female friendships, which is perfect for Galentine’s Day! It’s funny how I wasn’t sure I could come up with 5 but then they just started flowing. I might do my own version with male friendships because why not!
1. Angela & Bones (Bones)
It shouldn’t be a surprise to see these two on my list. I’m in a middle of a “Bones” rewatch and I just love their friendship beyond words. Angela really understands Temperance, even when no one else does. They’re two very different people but the love and friendship they share is something special. I believe they would do anything to help the other, and honestly we’ve seen that over the course of the show.
2. Ann & Leslie (Parks & Rec)
Are you really surprised to see this one on the list? Sure, they had a weird and rough start but by the end of the series, they were each others rocks. We don’t always get to see a friendship actually grow in a show. Most of the time we come in and everything is already a thing. It was really nice to see their friendship progress.
3. Rizzoli and Isles (Rizzoli and Isles)
I still miss this show! I feel like it ended maybe just a little too soon. Again, we have two women who are pretty different but still manage to be the best of friends. I think if we’ve learned anything from some of these shows, it’s that you really shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. A meaningful friendship can come from the most unlikely place. If you haven’t checked this show out, I highly recommend it!
4. Cece + Jess (New Girl)
Another show I miss! And a friendship that I love. I’m not sure it gets more ride or die than these two. Everything from break ups to weddings, they always had each other.
5. Harley Quinn & Poison Ivy
I haven’t picked up a comic in years but I go way back to the Batman Animated Series with these two. We all need that friend that points out that we’re way better than the relationship we’re stuck in. That you are you’re own person and don’t need to stay with some crappy dude in order to have any worth.
I can’t wait to see who everyone else has on their lists. And now I want to go and rewatch pretty much every show I have on this list.
