I like to watch Friends as my go-to feel good show. It's funny, makes you feel like a part of the group and just good plain fun. I gave How I Met Your Mother a chance when I was burned out on Friends and looking for a new series to play in the background while I picked up the house and tended to a baby. And boy am I glad I did. It's awesome. I watched all 6 seasons on Netflix over a next month or two. You should give it a try.
