About This Quiz

Television duos come in many forms. Often, these duos are romantic couples, so we see various formations of this kind on television. Some are married for a long time, while some are young couples still trying to find their way in the world. There are also couples who are of the same gender now, because that's how progressive television has already become as well, much like real life.

And of course, there are the buddy tandem types of TV duos. They could be roommates, housemates or even coworkers who are preoccupied with other things than their work. They could also be classmates in high school or college. They could also be partners in crime or crime fighting. 

Speaking of crime fighting, there are these TV duos who follow different kinds of buddy cop narratives. There are same gender cop buddies but their personalities are huge contrasts of each other. Of course, this should just be, because that is where TV conflict comes from.

Depending on which kind of TV duo they are, and depending on where their stories take place, let's see if we can assess where you can be best suited to live, or maybe stay for a short while, depending on how you answer this quiz.
