Bridges and Dominguez [Nash Bridges] Report Abuse
An amazingly funny duo, they alternated the role of straight man and jokester in a way that brought their interracial camaraderie to the fore in a natural and charismatic manner. Their respect and regard for each other added to the wonderful chemistry they brought to this cop show. Don Johnson and Cheech Marin both have a marvelous flair for comedy.

Two brothers that would do anything for each other, that have gone to Hell for the other, that no matter what always can count on the other because they got each others back in the hardest of times and that together (thanks to their in unconditional love) save the entire Universe. What else can you ask of a sibling duo?
