A myriad of excellent TV shows have centered on just that -- the connections you form with the people you willingly spend most of your time with. Be it roommates ("New Girl"), classmates ("Freaks and Geeks"), co-workers ("The Office"), secret crushes ("Dawson's Creek") or simply those who know your name ("Cheers"), TV friend-families come in many shapes and forms.
