Couldn't find this anywhere. We have Buddy Cop Show
, but that's not quite it. For one, that's a complete genre, while this describes the actual relationship. Plus, this shows up on ensemble cop shows just as often as buddy cop shows. Lots of other subtle differences and distinctions, I can go into them if needed.
Basically, a cop's partnership is the most stable relationship they have. If they have a spouse, expect them to be slightly jealous. By the time they realize how close they are, it may be too late (maybe they let a criminal get away in order to save their partner).
Needs a Better Description
and Title. Just throwing this up for ideas while i finish up on some other YKTT Ws
- only example off the top of my head is Eliot and Olivia on SVU. clearly not a Buddy Cop Show. I know I've seen this elsewhere though...
