Does anyone have an argument to this logic or can it be called truth?

I don't think that either show is very good, so it doesn't really matter.

A lot of shows are better than Friends...not to say Friends is the worse because there are many worse shows out there.

This. Friends is pretty terrible. Even Two and a Half Men is better.

How I met your mother is a show that tries so way too hard to be cool

and all the guidos and teens quote just about every line from it.

Ya I'm comparison, friends is the best show ever made

But I don't want much tv in general, just American politics, 1 talk show, 1 internet youtube-is-funny show, oh ya and whose line is it anyways?

"LEGEND wait for, wait for it, DARY"

Like you are really that unfunny that you have to quote lines from a tv show to get laughs from your peers? kill yourself

Jeez, a lot of different opinions here; How I Met Your Mother is one of my favorite shows; Friends, on the other hand, isn't really that funny. P.S. Someone mentioned Two and a Half Men is enjoyable every time I watch it, but I don't like it too much to record it.

I used to like HIMYM, but then I wizened up and started watching comedies like Arrested Development and Community. Now I can't stand HIMYM or any comedy show with a laugh track that signifies that someone made a lame joke...

Neither one of them is particularly good - With hindsight we can say Friends hasn't aged well, the jokes seem dated, the characters one dimension (which is why the Joey spin off could never have succeeded) and the episodes are fairly uniform. That said it is still really popular, which is another reason it has fallen in my estimation somewhat, the issue isn't the popularity itself rather the constant reruns because always knowing the punchline kind of kills the joke.

How I Met Your Mother, I am not nearly as well versed in, I've only seen two or three episodes - it has consistently failed to hook me, mainly because it has the same pitfalls as Friend (dating aside for now).

Sitcoms need great writing to be of substance, and off the top of my head I'd struggle to think of many that actually work.

What if you don't particularly care for either? Does that make me "mega cool" or "ultra hip"?

I've only seen a couple of episodes of Friends, so I'm not gonna say anything about it. How I met your Mother is decent, but it's not that funny compared to Arrested Development, Seinfeld, The League, or Louie.

I don't like either very much at all, but Friends tends to make me laugh more.

in any case, Community is many leagues better than both of those.

How I Met Your Mother can probably get me more emotional than Friends for some reason. But I definitely like Friends much better.

'How I met Your Mother' has its share of stupid moments, and just plain corny and retarded moments too, like the episode where Barney and Robin got into a relationship, and Barney got relationship gut, and started getting plain fat, and was stuufing his face in every scene, and Robin got pale skin, sh*tty looking hair, deppression and all that crap, it was a terrible episode and just plain stupid. The 'High 6' episode was dumb as sh*t too. even so, I still prefer it over Friends.

This. Friends is pretty terrible. Even Two and a Half Men is better.

Friends isn't an amazing show, but it's not terrible either. What you just said is insulting:P.

Yeah, Arrested Development, Seinfeld, and Louie are awesome, never seen The League. I'd also like to add to that list my personal favorite, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

I rarely watch shows for entertainment. The only shows I watch for laughs are Family Guy, American Dad, and Tosh.0. Any other time, I'm usually watching Syfy (Destination Truth (I like the legends they say)), or Science (Through The Wormhole, How the Universe Works) Yeah, Im a dork.
