HIMYM is a show best watched in marathon form. Netflix just added Season 7. I'm about halfway through and still think it's fantastic.

All I know is, the characters on How I Met Your Mother are people I would like to hang out with; the characters on Friends were just a tad snobby in my opinion.

Re: How I Met Your Mother vs Friends

But Rachel has awful taste in men, almost any of us would have a chance with her, and she sleeps with guys on the first date.

You just have to find the strength some how not to offend her by punching Ross in the nose.

This week's Mother was a classic episode. Every time they did a drum snare when Ted found something of his they borrowed and never returned I died laughing

I busted a gut when they found Lilly in the closet too with no forewarning.

Good to see the cowboy boots back too.

Re: How I Met Your Mother vs Friends

I had a funny thought the other day.

Would each show still work with swapped casts?

Who should play whom from the other show and how would it change the stories?

Re: How I Met Your Mother vs Friends

Ted - Ross
Barney - Joey
Robin - Rachel

You still get the on-off again thing with Ross and Rachel and the love triangle (although it was very brief in Friends).

Which leaves Marshall and Lily as Chandler and Monica.

But you'd need an extra person for Phoebe, I don't know who you could have from the HIMYM supporting cast to fill that role.
