How I Met Your Mother
Parks and Recreation
I love how I met your mother. Barney is way funnier than all of parks rec. combined. Lets face it people HIMYM is Legen- wait for it and I hope your not lactose intolerant because the second half of that word is- dary
Both are terrific, but How I Met Your Mother's finale kind of puts Parks and Recreation in the lead
Parks and Rec is incredibly witty, and Ann is perfect.
HIMYM has a few semi famous actors, and then Jason Segel and Neil Patrick Harris. I'm personally not a huge fan of the whole flashback format of each episode, and I really don't think it makes a whole lot of sense for the concept to be that this is a Dad telling his kids about their mother in a way that takes so painstakingly long. On the other hand, Parks and Recreation is a show filled with some awesome comedic actors, and throws a government twist on the Office format. Plus, Ron Swanson. That is all.
Parks and Recreation may have been two seasons shorter in the end, but it was just the better series. I prefer the plot of government and politics rather than a father telling the story of how he met his wife to his children. While Ted, Barney, Marshall and the gang's show feels somewhat too long and drawn out, Parks and Recreation finishes the show with only seven seasons, but an incredibly strong finale. In any case, Parks and Recreation has slightly better characters, like Ron Swanson.
