An Australian news outlet recently opened the oldest can of worms ever by asking which classic ’90s TV show was better — Friends or Seinfeld.
Proving that people will simply not let this argument go, a disturbing amount of fans took to Twitter to passionately defend their favorite sitcom.
OK, let's settle this… 'Friends' Vs 'Seinfeld': Which show is better? pic.twitter.com/a7hLQfwgpY

There were the Seinfeld folks. “There are two types of people in this world. Seinfeld people and people with bad taste,” one user wrote.

Dear Seinfeld, I am so sorry you had to be disrespected like this.

How is that even a question? Seinfeld is one of the greatest tv shows ever and Friends suck.

No serious person will choose Friends.

they are not even in the same league. Freinds is not timeless. It just looks sad now.
Seinfeld is awesome and it always will be.

Friends. Those saying Seinfeld think they’re *so* cool 🙄
There’s a reason why Friends was the number one streaming program on Netflix when it was recently put on there, almost 25 years after it first aired.

And then there were the people sick of the whole Friends vs. Seinfeld debate (THANK YOU, your resistance is like a fresh breeze).
I found them both pretty boring, and about as funny as a fart in a bath.

It’s like comparing apples and oranges. both shows have equal merit. Seinfeld has clever writing and was much funnier, but Friends has much greater character depth and development. Both shows have 10/10 casting and acting. Enjoy and respect both like a normal person.

You know British comedy exists though, right? Or have you not discovered that yet?

What do you think? Team Seinfeld or Team Friends?
