18 TV Friendships That Are More Toxic Than You Realized
Sherlock and Watson, Sherlock
This is one of the oldest toxic friendships in existence, but that doesn’t make it any better. On Sherlock, some effort is made to show how grateful Sherlock is to have John as his friend. For the most part, though, their relationship is the same as it always was. Sherlock belittles John’s intelligence and fails to consider how his friend might be feeling at every turn.
Nevertheless, John continues to help his friend whenever and however he can. The two of them may have plenty of exciting adventures, but their friendship is far from healthy. Instead of helping one another, they simply enable each other.
