There is no simple formula to forge a great bromance. Joey and Chandler set the bar back in the nineties with
many other shows trying to recreate that chemistry. The closest contenders are How I Met Your Mother's Ted Mosby and Barney Stinson.
Best buds don’t need to be cut from the same cloth, they don’t
have to come from the same mould and in most instances, opposites definitely attract. That’s exactly the case between Ted and Barney.
They have an undeniably strong bond. Both
characters are at totally different ends of the spectrum, with Barney chasing
his next score and Ted promoting a far more philosophical outlook in his search of finding 'the one'. This all adds up to a brilliantly rounded bromance, both bringing
a different angle and attitude to the relationship.
How well do you know the ‘other bromance’ in the sitcom
stratosphere? Can you tell Barney and Ted apart from their quotes alone?
