We all love F.R.I.E.N.D.S., and we love How I Met Your Mother as well. Both of them are best sitcoms that American Television has ever produced.
There was a time in every fan's life when all they wanted to do is go home and watch the an episode of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. or How I Met Your Mother. As a fan myself, I remember myself watching both shows continuously for hours.
Here is a list of similarities between both our favourite shows.
Hopeless romantic, nerd, caring, honest, believes in true love, not good with girls, always makes fool of himself - these terms perfectly define Ted and Ross both. They even have same hairstyles!
We adore Ted's eternal love for Robin and Ross's love for Rachel since early teens, but we can't ignore the fact that both of them were their best friends and crucial member of their social group.
Joey and Barney - they both are full of confidence and hence they both are good with ladies. Their dating life is a major sub-plot of both the shows. Barney with his awesome plays and Joey with his catchy phrases has entertained us a lot. But if you pay attention, we will find out they are almost same characters living in different times.
While character of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. likes to hang out Central Perk, a fictional coffee shop at New York City, characters of HIMYM always hang out at McLaren's Pub, another fictional establishment in NYC. Central Perk is located at the same building where Monica, Rachel, Joey & Chandler live, and McLaren's Pub is located in the building of Ted's apartment.
While it's hard to choose one favorite between Chandler and Monica from F.R.I.E.N.D.S. & Marshall and Lily from HIMYM, as they both are adorable, But looking at lives of both, one can easily find many similarities.
The sacred code of brotherhood forbids a friend to date any current or past girlfriend of his friends. Chandler crossed the line when he started to date Kathy and Barney broke the code when he started to date Robin.
Barney in HIMYM is a registered minister. He acted as a minister in Marshall and Lily's wedding. Joey was a registered minister in F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and he acted as a minister in Chandler and Monica's wedding.
Lily and Monica both have a bossy nature. Chandler and Marshall have feminine nature. Joey and Barney are always full of stupid Idea. Female leads - Robin and Rachel are cute and a little dumb at same time.
Ross has a habit of correcting everyone all the time. Ted also has the same habit. Ross and Ted both know almost every fact of history, science and current affairs. Both Ted and Ross have habit to make list of things. And they both had been a professor at some point of their life.
