never really got into Seinfeld

Friends was the first "adult" show I really loved (I was like 11 when I started watching it). the thing I love about Friends is you can totally compare the characters to people in your life. plus, it's hilarious

and i used to have a huge crush on matthew perry, even before i liked bono now that i'm watching Studio 60 I'm starting to appreciate him again; he's proven to actually be a good actor

Friends was far too sappy and soap opera like. Again, I much prefer the cynical edge of Seinfeld.

Ditto. Gotta love their rule of "no hugging, no learning."

Friends was just sad to watch. Lisa Kudrow's character was such a do-and-say-anything-for-a-laugh kind of character that it just made me feel embarrassed for her.

I don't think Friends even has a shot.

Seinfeld bar none.

Seinfeld in a cakewalk.

Arrested Development is better than either, but maybe also might have tailed off if it had run as long.

Curb your enthusiasm is getting closer to "time to leave while on top of your game" time.

Seinfeld, no contest.

I've only seen a few Friends episodes but always found them much too corny, drama, trendy and just trying too hard to aim at a young crowd.
I have about half of Seinfeld on dvd and the episodes still manage to make me laugh after repeated viewings. And it has oh so many quotes, Curb is probably my #1 favorite show..which again is so full of randomness, brilliant quotes and awkward moments.

Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Office & Arrested Development are in my opinion the funniest shows ever.

other shows that have made me laugh:
old Simpsons, old Family Guy, The Daily Show couple years ago, Conan O'brien, Colbert Report, Strangers with Candy, Blackadder, first 2 seasons of Scrubs

Do you like the British version of The Office?

I like both the US & UK versions of the Office
since they're both hilarious
but I'm more devoted to the US version

I've never seen Fawlty Towers

Well, there's not much to discuss. Friends wasn't funny, unless you're in the Adam Sandler movie demographic. Seinfeld was well-written and funny.

Why does this even need a thread? If you really like Friends that much, isn't there a Kelly Clarkson album or catchphrase you could be practicing right now?

Aw, don't be mean. Some of us like silly things like Friends and Kelly Clarkson as well as smarter stuff like Seinfeld and literature. The two are not mutually exclusive, and it pisses me off when people get all superior and culture snobbish about it.



I hate Adam Sandler and find Friends funny. What do you make of that, smart guy?

Yeah, Friends was cheesy, and sometimes annoying (who cares about Ross and Rachel, really?), but I enjoyed Joey's inanity, Phoebe's randomness, and Matthew Perry's delivery of Chandler's one-liners.

So sue me.
