The similarities are pretty blatant. And not just because it's about six white people who live in apartments they shouldn't be able to afford. Below is how Redditor BadManPuntedBaxter (awesome) broke it down.

- hmm...it's true there's no new ideas anymore...but this is quite funny coinkydink
- It's funnier the second time watching :P
- Ive noticed this before. i didn't pull out all the details like you guys, but i definitely saw parallels. I love both shows evenly.
- So the "real" mom will be Phoebe! Yeah Lisa Kudrow cameo!
- HIMYM only has 5 white people.
- And it will go for longer than ten seasons and be repeated forever and ever amen.
- HIMYM beat you to it; they did an episode in a coffee shop as joking comparison.
- womaniser? Is that the English spelling?
- And yet, How I Met Your Mother is God and Friends sucks balls. It's not what ya do, but how ya do it.
- So true!
- hahaha what a small world!!
- And also, that the womanizer guy fell for the hot new girl, too.
- mmm, Jason Segel....drool
- I still like both, I must say I feel I should of seen this cliche.
- "How I met your Mom" is WAAAAAY Better than "Friends" -there is more cultural diversity on "HIMYM" and a variety of Hot chicas! Why are there soo few black people on "Friends" (It's NEW YORK). Barney is waaaay cooler and believable than ANY "friends " male. Plus the women on "HIMYM" are down to earth & likable - I don't want to punch them in the face whenever they talk about their problems. "Friends" is a liberal paradise view of the world (from Hollywood's view) - "HIMYM" is more East Coast self-mocking culture satire. Plus, You could hang out with ANYONE from "HIMYM" and Not feel like a Douche-Bag - where as everyone on "Friends" was a whiney idiot no matter what the plot was
- People still watch television? You would have thought that eventually they would have found something more interesting to do like collect the wax out of their ears into one big nasty ball of earwax the size of a baby's head.
- Friends for life.
- I really love friends .. HIMYM is nothing compare to friends
- please tell him nadosh
- Hımym sucks friends is the best
