What is the best duo?


The Rambler

This week the staff of The Rambler responded to the question, “What is the best duo?” The broadness of the question prompted a variety of interesting responses. Read the staff members’ answers and explanations below.

The best duo would have to be The White Stripes. They were a rock band formed in 1997, consisting of Jack White and Meg White. They essentially propelled the garage rock genre into the spotlight in the early 2000s. Jack played guitar, Meg played drums, and with both occasionally contributing vocals, they created a simplistic style of music that nonetheless worked really well, earning them a significant amount of success. You may recognize their song “Seven Nation Army,” which is frequently played at sporting events. They released a total of six albums over their career, before disbanding officially in 2011. I have listened to their music for quite a long time now, and would rank them as one of my favorite bands of all time. Their drum and guitar lines are both very catchy, with some meaningful lyrics as well. They would probably be one of the more modern bands that I listen to, with most of my listening material ranging from the late 60s to the early 80s. Consider giving them a listen sometime.

The best duo in my opinion would have to be Jesse Pinkman and Walter White. In the beginning of the series, they’re the last people you would expect to team up. However, in a matter of a few seasons, they become some of the largest kingpins in the country. Together, they survive against their other “competition,” as well as the law. If it weren’t for some personal disagreements between the two, they would have been able to live the rest of their lives lavishly.

It’s undeniable that the best duo ever would have to be SpongeBob and Patrick, and it’s not even close. These two best friends in the show SpongeBob SquarePants, really come together as one to help to fix any problem in bikini bottom that needs to be fixed. And even when they fix the problem, they always find a way to laugh and have a good time in doing so. They fight occasionally, but in the end they will always be friends and be there for one another. SpongeBob and Patrick will always be one of the greatest, if not the best duo of all time.

The best duo is Gob and Michael Bluth from Arrested Development. Considering Arrested Development is my favorite TV show, and these two characters make most of the entertainment of the show I consider them an amazing duo. Their shenanigans play off of each other in a comedic way but they both in the end show they care for each other. Overall, their relationship and appearances on the show make me say Gob and Michael are the best duo.

My favorite duo is Rory and Lorelai Gilmore. They are a perfect daughter and mother duo in the show Gilmore Girls. They have so many funny and sad moments that just define the perfect mother and daughter duo.

The best duo? Obviously the answer is Batman and Robin. No other duo can come close. OK, maybe Shaggy and Scooby, but other than that no one. They are literally called the dynamic duo. You got a light-hearted, but skilled kid to balance out the dark, vengeful vigilante. It’s a surprisingly deep, but also action-packed match made in heaven. 
Dominick Scarpino
The best duo is C-3PO and R2-D2. In every Star Wars movie that they are in, you can be assured that we will see some shenanigans between the two of them. As a viewer, you can always count on the friendship that these two share. We have seen countless times how these two always have each others backs, and will always do whatever they can to save the other. These two are the most reliable characters in all of Star Wars, as well as the best duo that I have every seen.
