Most Big Bang Theory threads mention how no one would want to be friends with Sheldon. This got me thinking about sitcom characters - and how most of them (even the ones I enjoy watching on TV) I wouldn’t be friends with in real life. Of course the exaggeration of neurotic tics is part of what makes them funny.
But is there anyone in sitcom world you’d actually be friends with? I think I could put up withe Marshall, from How I Met Your Mother; or maybe J.D. or Carla from Scrubs. That’s it. I’d sooner be friends with Sheldon than with Ross from Friends or Frazier from Frazier.
