Thank you all!
I want to have "The Office" as the oldest show.
Was not sure about "Hannibal", but ok.
The list is updated.

myststra,

You could add criteria to your list to limit the choices, such as:
Note: Only television series from the 21st Century are considered in this poll.

Likewise, you could change the title of your list/poll to:
Something Special in the 21st Century

Hi Myststra and welcome to the poll board. : )

This is a really good poll and really well constructed, especially for a first poll. I'm so glad that you have Judy and Jen from "Dead to Me" on there but I think I'd have to go with Dexter and Deb. 'Nothing quite like their relationship anywhere else. 

I was going to suggest something from "Orange is the New Black" but there are so many. Since you said "unlikely," though, I'll suggest these friends:

Bog Boo and Pennsatucky / Doggett  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2372162/mediaviewer/rm3420659200?ft0=name&fv0=nm0216466&ft1=ima...

I was also thinking of Taystee and Mr. Caputo but there's no image on IMDb and I couldn't even find one that would work anywhere else online. 

The second poll that I ever made was similar to this one. I made mine in 2014 so many of the characters are from series that are probably too old for your poll but feel free to use any that you like and that fit: https://www.imdb.com/poll/J-3TwNc59G4/?ref_=po_ti

myststra,

Thank you for updating the title of your list to:

Might be better as Something Special in 21st Century Character Relationships 

Also, there's a d missing in "Raylan an Boyd".
