    Default Friends is a straight ripoff of Seinfeld

    i watched Friends first for the record. then I watched Seinfeld and it was immediately clear. I was pretty young when I started watching Friends, over a decade ago.

    but it wasn't until this decade that I watched Seinfeld. the concept is a straight ripoff it's so blatant. "let's make a comedy out of a group of friends in NY" only let's add prettier women.

    as far as comedy goes, Seinfeld rules. Friends is a poorman's version. Only low-IQ people think Friends is funnier.

    When it comes to broad comedy you put on the TV as background noise, nothing will ever top Seinfeld. Ever.

    Wouldn't say it's a rip off but I agree with you - it's low IQ comedy.

    Plus so unrealistic, can't live in NY on any of the jobs those people had except maybe Ross.

    Anyway, let's spice up this thread:

    All that shit is a ripoff of 3's company.

    Jack = Ross = Jerry
    Janet = Rachel = Elaine
    Larry = Joey = George
    Chrissy = Phoebe = Susan
    Stanley = Chandler = Kramer

    Seinfeld is the GOAT. I watch at least one episode a day.



    Takes the pain away.

    Friends is horrible, Seinfeld is acceptable.

    CONCEPT: an abstract or generic idea

    Seinfeld: facing the conflict that results from sex, romantic relationships and friendships.

    Friends: literally the same blueprint.

    the smaller details are obviously different, hence the "concept". though Seinfeld pulled it off better bc the topic of their episodes was pretty brazen from what I understand of that period in time.

    you can't ignore the facts. it goes beyond copying the 'group of friends in NY'. ffs, they regularly convene in their apartments or a cafe...just like Seinfeld.

    idk why you keep bringing up 3's company old man. Seinfeld was far better.

    and we're talking about straight conceptual ripoffs. Seinfeld talked a lot about sex but it also revolved around everyday things vs the cringe of 3's company. and friends was in ny much like Seinfeld. not to mention of the obvious differences between the sexual gender of the characters. much different dynamic between a dude with two female roommates and seinfeld's ensemble. the fact that i have to break this down to you reinforces how ignorant you are.
