Brothers and sisters.
Probably the strongest bond that humans can form is of protection of each other from all evil and the relationship between a brother and a sister is a perfect example of people ready to sacrifice for each other to all extents in order to protect each other. Their bond is extremely special and unique, quite evident from the song Dev Anand serenades his gorgeous screen sister in Hare Rama Hare Krishna with the words “Phoolon ka taaron ka, sabka kehna hai, Ek hazaron mein meri behna hai“. The camaraderie is indeed one in a million.
Here are a some of our favorite brother-sister pairs on television who gave us serious sibling goals.
1. Dexter and Debra (Dexter)
They might not have been related by blood but they established such a strong relationship in the beginning of the show itself that it took us by the wonder that family indeed is beyond blood. As the macabre storyline kept unfolding in front of us, we kept rooting for Debra because she kept emerging as the grey heroine out of the shadows trying to help her brother Dexter escape his demons.
2. Ross And Monica (F.R.I.E.N.D.S)
The most loved pair in the history of television doesn’t and cannot be not adored. They are the perfect amount of weird for people coming from the Long Island with super rich backgrounds yet living a perfectly humble life in New York along with a funny and lovable bunch of people they have for friends. 🙂
3. Bart and Lisa (The Simpsons)
Bart Jr. and Lisa are complete opposites. Bart takes to his dad and Lisa is a super smart little lady who knows her brother is super daft but still, is her brother. We love these little yellow people as much as the minions!
4. Claire and Mitchell (Modern Family)
Claire is the quintessential soccer mom and Mitchell is a mild gay man who ironically has the law for a profession. Their chemistry and understanding is far deeper and hidden than their weird-ass disagreements along with their dad Jay Pritchett. This show is beautifully funny and relatable.
5. Oliver and Thea (Arrow)
I protect you, you protect me.
This pair is the perfect example of two kids who are almost parental to each other and love each other beyond bounds because after all, it’s only family which sails through for you.
6. Dexter and Dee Dee (Dexter’s Laboratory)
The most irritating sister on the planet to the unfortunate little scientist named Dexter. We loved them as kids and we still love their shenanigans now. 😀
7. Fox and Samantha (The X-Files)
They work together, they suffer together, they protect each other and in the end, find each other because when everything is over, the family is where you belong.
8. Dan and Jenny (Gossip Girls)
The tumultuous series about the life of a rich girl and her friends features this beautiful pair of a simple brother and an adventurous sister and their struggles through teenage and growing up together.
9. Simon and River (Firefly)
Simon would go anywhere to save his sister. He is the epitome of the idea of a responsible brother. He’d even go and save her when an alien government is trying to attack his sister.
10. Katara and Sokka (Avatar – The Last Airbender)
Those who’ve seen the cartoons, they know how they’ve wanted to have siblings like these water benders who are the best friends of the last Airbender left in the universe.
