I like HIMYM better.
Before you judge my life choices, let me tell you why I feel this way.
People told me to watch HIMYM before F.R.I.E.N.D.S, and I did that.
Let me tell you, I loved every bit of it, right from the beginning till the time when the mother was healthy (where are my tissues?)
When I was done with the series, that’s when I decided to start with the 1st generation, aka’ F.R.I.E.N.D.S. And, I liked it, I really did.
The banter, the sarcasm, and all the camaraderie were worth watching.
I’m not done with the series yet, for some personal reasons. But, I already know that the ending’s better than HIMYM.
All being said, I still like HIMYM better than F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
And the reasons are mentioned below, coz, why not?
1) It’s more relatable. How? Refer to point four.
2) They don’t put so many efforts into making it funny. Which means no character is an adult in their 30s with the brain of a 5-year-old.
3) I have seen weird people. I have known most of them. But, have I seen anyone as cray-cray as Phoebe? NEVER.
Do I hate her? Absolutely not. She’s my spirit animal.
4) There is no point four. Let’s get back to the paragraph.
I have seen quite a few Teds, in my life. Almost every friend group has a Barney. Lily is just another basic woman. Honestly, all of us have a little Lily in ourselves. Fragile, but strong.Stupid, but Lovable. First-person you go to for a bit of advice. Crazy, but not too much.
Robin, well Robin is someone who you want to be friends with, only if you are well settled in your life. Why? Because she is a little intimidating. I can’t put into words how is she intimidating, but the girls who have seen the show know what I’m talking about.
Whereas, in F.R.I.E.N.D.S, other than Monica, Rachel, Ross and maybe Chandler, I don’t think I’ll ever have a fortune of meeting someone like Phoebe and Joey. Is it sad? Yes, but it’s just the way it is.
Both the shows had some of the best celebrity appearances, with George Clooney and Brad Pitt on F.R.I.E.N.D.S, to Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez and Brittany Spears on HIMYM.
Talking about how HIMYM ends, I don’t want to talk about it. I mean, that was like a knife through the heart (Exaggeration? maybe). When we finally got to see the Mother (after 8 long seasons), we started thinking about how are they going to end this thing. Everyone loved the Mother. She was funny, weird, sarcastic, beautiful and whatnot?
But then, they killed her off. I mean, who are you, George RR Martin? Why would you do something like that?
Anyway, I still forgive him, for how amazing the rest of the series was.
Yes, F.R.I.E.N.D.S, I’d still finish watching it. But, HIMYM, I’d still rate it above. Right there with Sherlock, GoT, and Pitchers.
** Dear F.R.I.E.N.D.S fans, that was just my opinion, don’t come after me, I’m weak**
