It’s cool thing to hate on friends these days . Obviously I agree it’s not the best tv show ever but you’ve got to be kidding if you say it’s not funny . The show was funny during its last few seasons , which says a lot about the quality of a sitcom since 90% of them goes downhill during their 8/9/10 season .
The prerequisites for enjoying Friends are minimal.
Appreciating Simpsons requires solid understanding of American pop culture. Appreciating Seinfeld requires first-hand experience of the New York City life. Appreciating Arrested Development requires benevolent tolerance of the boundaries of humour in the context of family ties. Friends is just the path of least resistance.
so it works for me ... much better than “how I met your mother “.
It is just some disgruntled HIMYM staunch fans posting this stuff.
HIMYM has good framing device and narrative was a bit fancy. A couple of it's seasons were really good but apart from that it was pretty pedestrian. I have rated most of the episodes at 6 to 6.5 in my database. Barney Stinson and Lilly gradually became intolerable, especially Barney Stinson.
The only Saving grace were Ted Mosby and Marshall Eriksen.
One of the major reason I continued watching HIMYM was to know who is the mother and how did Ted meet her. But it became really tedious after some time.
HIMYM is more of a conjob than being a good serial.
Friends on the other hand is pure simple fun and anybody young or old can instantly connect with it.
