I fracking love Walter as a character. He is one of the most interesting, profound, and well-written characters in TV land. Don’t even get me started on how awesome Olivia is, either. A primo example of strong writing for females. I’m in the middle of season four, so DON’T SPOIL IT.
Also, Life, another fantastic show that was canceled too early for being smart (see Firefly, Dollhouse, Keen Eddie, etc.), has a really good relationship between the two main characters — the inestimable Damian Lewis and talented Sarah Shah. I oftentimes have a male/female duo in my novels and the dialogue between them is one of the important things I work on a lot.
