I’m looking for positive fictional stories of mentors and protégées. I’m not necessarily looking for stories of teachers and students, but 1:1 mentorships that bring out the best in both parties.

The Good Place! What especially like about it is the reciprocity - everyone is learning from each other. Bringing out the best in each other is pretty much the thesis statement of the show.
