“The following program contains scenes of graphic stupidity among four lifelong friends who compete to embarrass each other”, anybody who has seen this show even once will think of this line in a heavy baritone. The funniest show that will leave you gasping for air like a fish right out of water, yes that exact description. As the name goes, four adults who have been best friends since high school give each other (really) impractical dares that most people would refrain from doing but not these guys. If you haven’t seen this show, you are honestly missing out on a lot in life.
Everybody’s favorite and probably their parent’s favorite too, we give you FRIENDS. The show that gave us ‘How you doin?’, ‘Unagi’, the secret middle finger action and probably the best time of our lives growing up. I don’t think there is anybody out there who didn’t fall for the show and gets a little nostalgic every time ‘I’ll be there for you’ comes on. It does have a pretty simple story but hilarious lines. Chandler’s sarcasm, Joey’s flirtation, Monica’s crazy strength and everything and everybody related to the show.
How I Met Your Mother
Aka HIMYM. It too has a pretty simple story line of a father telling his children how he met their mother (duh!!) with his 4 other best friends but with unique things that you couldn’t have predicted like the ‘The Bro Code’, ‘Wait for it…’ ‘No Questions Asked’ (that episode involved colorful ninjas, could you have honestly been able to guess it?), the slap bet and ‘Have you met Ted?’. Interesting, eh?
The Big Bang Theory
Who would have thought that one of the best shows of our times would revolve around the story of four scientists (Wolowitz is an engineer)? Three nerds and a Sheldon Cooper (he is in a league of his own) are not just obsessed with comic con but also have trouble interacting with the opposite sex and of course they had to have the very beautiful Penny as their neighbor on whom all three of them crush on at one point or the other in the show. From Sheldon’s lullaby ‘Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur’ to the awkward situations that the other cast members either land up in or create themselves will make you laugh out loud.
Five roommates, four guys and one girl. What should seem weird behavior and something that makes you question your own preferences as a human, turns out to be the cutest and most relatable funny scenes that you will ever see. One of a kind show in which every character seems to be out of their minds in some way. Nick’s Night gown aka long man tee, Jess’s likings about everything, Schmidt’s fat phase and adorable obsession with CeCe. Just six best friends hanging out together and miserably failing at being normal adults.
