Four Most Loved Sit-Coms of all Times
After a long tiring day, the best way to unwind is to treat yourself with some dose of laughter. Not only does it relax you, but it also adds some moments of laughter to an otherwise dull day. Next time if you cannot decide on which show to watch, it’s always better to stick to the good old comedy shows which have tickled our funny bones for the longest time and never grow old. We take a look at four of these sitcoms which have earned the gold standard in comedy.
The sitcom revolving around the lives of six friends, Friends manages to strike a chord with the viewers every time. The sitcom has enriched our cultural vocabulary with phrases like How you doin’?, Smelly Cat, Joey never shares food and so on. And the places shown like the café The Central Perk, their apartment in New York have been immortalized. The show makes us all chip for Chandler and Monica, cry over the break-up scenes of Ross and Rachel, laugh on the deadpan expressions of Joey and love the quirky expression of Pheobe. Over the years, Friends have inspired a lot of similar shows and started a trend of ‘Friends-like’ comedy.
Another classical show of the nineties, Seinfield is the story of an anxious stand-up comedian and his gang of equally dysfunctional friends. Over the years, the show too has gained a cult status among the fans. Despite numerous reruns of the show, Seinfield still is viewed as a timeless comedy forever etched in the minds of the viewers
How I Met Your Mother
