Both are bad shows but I would have to say that the Big Bang Theory takes it as the worst. That show is cosmically bad. None of the jokes are funny in the slightest and without the laugh-track would be so excruciatingly cringey I think I would vomit. The characters are horribly annoying, bland, boring, and have no personality other than being; the nerd, the other nerd, the Indian etc etc. The plots don’t make much sense and aren’t engaging in the slightest. They feature troubled romances that no one wants to happen, and only serve to make the show even more stressful to watch. They feature extremely tired stereotyping that can make anyone feel irritated at the representation of their group, it’s not even clever enough to actually be offensive, it just makes you feel embarrassed for those involved. They feature references to nerd culture, which are either so obvious you’ve heard them a billion times before (like loving Star Wars or whatever) or are just made up because the writers had no ideas! The show is just super lazy, terrible, cringe-inducing and did I mention, terrible?

So I prefer Friends.

Yes, I agree that Friends is better. TBBT have taken lots of Friends ideas and attempted to turn it into something new. I disagree that Friends is bad though, I really like it.

It is been a while that I watched Friends, but just a few episodes. So it is really hard to compare. In terms of the Big Bang theory, I liked the first four seasons and even the fifth and sixth one were alright. But with the beginning of season seven, I lost my interest.

TBBT was good &original in the first few seasons, but it's really gone downhill.

Now the jokes are obvious and lazy, and there is a huge annoying laugh after every line, even the ones (well most of them, really) that aren't funny.

These are my 2 favourite shows haha! I feel like TBBT has deteriorated a little; it's no longer about a group of nerds but instead focussing on their happy relationships. It's made it less relatable. Friends is a classic though, watch it over and over and it never fails to make me laugh

Think almost the same about this sitcom. And as for the laughings, they tend to be annoying and redundant in every sitcom. As if I have to be remember when it gets funny.

The Big Bang Theory because without it, you’d of never have any Friends.

Friends is actually funny so Friends wins.
TBBT is garbage IMO, Silicon Valley is similar but miles better.

I watched Friends when it first aired. It really is a icon of the 90s/00s and is a classic, although it if aired now I'm not sure if would get the same response.

I also watch The Big Bang Theory - the first few seasons were funny, but the newer ones not so much. It is probably a good thing that the next season will be the last.
