HIMYM vs Friends

Postby Tyler » Wed Mar 28, 2012 9:25 am

Since we compared the two shows in a different thread I thought this was appropriate.

Haha nice. I choose Friends hands down though. I've seen every episode AT LEAST five times each.

I saw that on reddit, I think and now I compare the two every time I watch HIMYM. I love Friends but I think I'm partial to HIMYM probably just because I'm at an age to truly appreciate it. When Friends was popular I was like 12, I watch episodes now that I've seen before and catch all sorts of inappropriate jokes I didn't understand back then. Also, I don't think Chandler was my favorite on Friends but Marshall is definitely my favorite on HIMYM.

I agree with you arwagner. Friends is a great show, but since I'm more mature now and can understand more I am biased towards HIMYM.

Seen that before and some of it is true. The Ross/Rachel Ted/Robin comparison bothers me because Ross and Rachel end up together at the end of the series. Also, I don't think Chandler is the "best one". Also, Friends is way better.

friends is better by far. id have to say the early on joey chandler combo was great, but joeys role got confused later on and regressed while i thought chandlers role got stronger as the series went on. i still like joey best though.

Honestly I don't think the characters are really comparable.

This is somewhat relevant to this thread. Also, it's very fun.
