How I met your mother - Is it Friends Part II?

I know on the surface it's like a Buffy-verse reunited but I watched from season 1-3 this week and now and again I keep thinking i've seen this before and then it clicked.

How I met your mother
One episode Robyn realises she likes Ted and goes and tell him but he just found a new girl call Victoria

Friends
Rachel finds out Ross likes him and realises she likes him too but at the airport Ross brings back Julie.

How I met your mother & Friends
All the characters tell each other their annoying habits, but not until it's pointed out the others never realised it.

They both have a break up episode and their own "12 step" programme.

Barney has a job that no one knows what it is but pays well, So does Chandler.


Ted is Ross
Robyn is Rachel
Marshall is Chandler without the wit
Lily is Monica but not as scary
Barney is Joey with braincells (Possibly the greatest creation of a character EVER, he's LEGEND............wait for it........DARY !)
No equivalent Phoebe
Carl is Gunther


I am not complaining since I am quite enjoying it, it's comforting in a way and I find it funnier than other Sitcoms at the moment but how much more are they going to borrow from friends !?

Who is this Barney of which you speak?

And you missed out the best character, Swarley.

I think he's referring to Doogie Howser

It's an excellent show. I think it's more of a mix of Friends and Seinfeld. The writing is very good and it's put together very well.

Even Ted's apartment is more or less a mirror image of Monica and Rachels apartment. The bar replacing Central Perk.

I'd have said Marshal and Barney both split equal parts of Joey and Chandler between them.

'Tis a great show. And long may it continue.

Legen...wait for it...dary

My favourite comedy along with scrubs. Though I have to say I think that if Swarley leaves it'll sink without a trace.

Dont like this at all.

Doogie Howsers character is desperately unfunny,

Always good to see more Alyson Hannigan though.

This show is way funnier then Friends, Doogie is by far the funniest of the crew.

There was even an episode where they tried out hanging in a coffee bar, which is where Bob Swarleymon first appeared

Barney to be offered a role in the sequel to Will Smith's current film.

They're going to call it 'I Am Legendary'.

I have been catching repeats of what I think is the first season on Trouble (the last episode I saw was the one in the limo on NYE) and i'm loving it. Think I might pick up the first season DVD. As others have said Barney is a great character.

Just got to the end of series 1 on DVD (having seen almost all of it on BBC2) series 2 is already on it's way from Amazon.com, a great series, but badly scheduled over here, figured it's easier just to go with the DVDs.

I hate Friends, I never thought it was funny :/ this rocks though! Although 90% of it is Barney and the other 10% is obviously Robin Sparkles!

As for Slapsgiving... *spoiler if you've not seen Season 3*
