Cracked VS: Friends vs. Seinfeld
What is the best sitcom that came out of the '90s? Let's put two of the heaviest hitters in the ring and see who comes out on top: the schmaltzy FRIENDS (hereafter referred to as "Friends" because that is insane) or Seinfeld that spent 10 years with no hugging and no learning?
The long-running sitcom Seinfeld has been praised for its clever writing and sharp wit. However, some critics argue that the show is actually a commentary on the superficiality of human relationships. The main characters, Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer are often selfish and insensitive to the needs of others. They frequently manipulate their friends and acquaintances for personal gain. Even when they are not actively trying to hurt someone, they often unintentionally cause pain through their thoughtlessness. In contrast, the characters on the sitcom Friends are much more supportive of one another. They may have their differences, but they are always there for each other in times of need. As a result, Friends provides a more realistic and hopeful portrayal of friendship than Seinfeld.
