* ''Series/TheMuppetShow'': How about StatlerAndWaldorf? Not only do they argue LikeAnOldMarriedCouple at times, during the ballroom sequences they're sometimes seen dancing with each other. Statler also dated Lionel Barrymore. Admittedly, it was because Ethel was busy.

* Just look at the motivations of [[spoiler: Buddy]], the murderer in the ''PushingDaisies'' episode "Frescorts". Holy crap. DepravedHomosexual anyone?

* Why would ''Series/DoctorWho'' spinoff and ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' sister show ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'' be exempt just because it's (usually) LighterAndFluffier than the other two? In the first episode, new neighbor Maria finds Sarah Jane happily - almost tearfully - bidding farewell to an ethereal butterfly-woman of the same species as [[PsychoLesbian the one Tosh was involved with]] in an episode of ''Torchwood''. The alien leaves Sarah Jane with a heart-shaped communicator and promises to write her poetry. Some viewers tend to read quite a bit into Maria and Sarah Jane's relationship as well.
** No commentary on the Ho Yay present in this show is complete without a mention of Luke and Clyde. During a webchat from university in series three, Luke decides to mess with him by claiming to have really 'clicked' with one of his new mates. Clyde's reaction is pure jealousy.
*** Creator/RussellTDavies has [[WordOfGay confirmed]] in a DVD commentary that Luke is gay and that had the series continued his relationship with his new "friend" would have been overtly depicted as romantic.

* ''{{Series/Damages}}'': if Patty and Ellen were guys the slash would break the internet. Especially in the third season: "you're trying to seduce me with bourbon", indeed.

* ''{{Series/Damages}}'': if Patty and Ellen were guys the slash would break the internet. Especially In the show, both women are lawyers, and Ellen oscillates repeatedly between being Patty's protegee and her rival. They have an extremely tense and emotionally intimate relationship, especially in the third season: season, where Patty recruiting a new associate to replace Ellen is played suspiciously closely to a love triangle with the new associate as the "rebound girl"; Patty, falsely believing that Ellen did something to screw her over, turns up at Ellen's flat drunk and in a state of hysterical rage and despair that seems completely unlikely for a purely professional relationship; and when they are trying to make up we get the memorable line "you're trying to seduce me with bourbon", indeed.bourbon". This is downplayed in the final season, in which their relationship becomes much more a hostile parent-child surrogate one.

** For people who'd just met, [[OverlyLongName Boris Kuester von Jurgens-Ratenicz]] and [[TheMedic Hank Lawson]] form an extraordinarily close bond. How close? After seeing Hank correctly treat of his party guests after his personal doctor misdiagnosed her, Boris fires said doctor then invites Hank to be his new one and come live in the guest cottage on his property. The majority of their conversations are in the form of intimate walks/meals together and the doctor/patient relationship becomes more like that of a LadyAndKnight, though the [[DamselInDistress one in distress]] switches between the two.

** Evan Lawson's tendency to [[AscendedFanboy fanboy]] and willingness to flatter to get what he wants leads to this often. Of course his close SiblingTeam with Hank has some IncestSubtext; their round of skinny dipping definitely didn't help.

to:

** It [[LoveTriangle gets complicated]] when Dr. Marisa Caseras (Boris's old flame) debuts. Things are tense between Marisa and Hank when she learns Boris flew him down to Cuba simply to do the medical work up on him for her clinical trial. Their interactions are best described as meeting an ex your significant other still likes. When Hank sees them dancing, he looks like a pissed off [[ClingyJealousGirl boyfriend]]. Evan once again [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] the situation.
---->'''Evan''': Whoa. Is Boris in a long distance relationship?
---->'''Hank''': Yeah. With the woman trying to save his life
---->'''Evan''': Oh...I thought that was you.
*** Not to mention when things became more amicable between Hank and Marisa, the ThreesomeSubtext shot through the roof. After Marisa seems to have been PutOnTheBus and [[CartwrightCurse none of Hank's relationships]] have ever panned out, it's hard to tell who their [[LoveInterest Love Interests]] are actually supposed to be.

After first dragging Hank out to the Hamptons after getting fired from his job, they spend their vacation in a one room motel room where Evan seems incredibly comfortably being half-naked all the time. Their round of skinny dipping definitely didn't help.

* Despite the cast being largely heterosexual, SpinCity nearly jumps the barrier from subtext to just plain old text. For example, in the episode "My Best Friend's Boyfriend", Mike thinks Carter's boyfriend is hitting on him, so he tries to seduce him to confirm his suspicions. [[spoiler:He's wrong.]]

* ''ThePacific'': Sledge and his best friend Sid. The homoerotic subtext between these two "best friends" is just too obvious to ignore. Their reunion in Part 5 makes it more blatant.
*** Sledge/Snafu seems to be popular in fandom as well. The fact that Snafu seems to have no concept of personal space when it comes to Eugene just adds fuel to the fire.
** ''[[Series.BandOfBrothers The Band Of Brothers]]'': Winters and Nixon are practically the canon ship in the fandom. Also, many a fan has speculated that the writers of the show made the relationship between Webster and Liebgott be more than just friends. Spiers/Lipton is also popular, based mostly around the conversation they have at the end of "The Breaking Point" and how Spiers treats Lipton when the latter is ill.

* Asylum, a show made by a lot of the same people who made ''Spaced'' features a character who would later be the inspiration for [[MadArtist Brian]], (played by [[TheMightyBoosh Julian Barrett.]]) who shares a strange attraction with one of his fellow patients.
