How I Met Your Mother Or The Big Bang Theory – Would You Rather TV Edition

Sheldon Vs Barney

I love “Would You Rather” games. My friends hate me for it because I always like to pose impossible questions that make you ponder before you answer them like “Would you rather be rich and stupid or poor and smart?”

I decided to port that over in the TV realm by posing a question that was a tough one for me to answer.

Imagine that you are in the office of the president of CBS and he tells you the following:

“I need to cancel one sitcom. It is down to two series: How I Met Your Mother or The Big Bang Theory. I am letting you choose. Would you rather cancel How I Met Your Mother or The Big Bang Theory?”

Now in order to play this game, you have to be like me and really LOVE both shows. Otherwise, it is no fun.

Personally, picking between both shows would be like picking between two of my children. But ultimately, with tears in my eyes, I would have to go with keeping The Big Bang Theory for the following reasons:

– Sheldon knocking three times on Penny’s door saying “Penny, Penny, Penny”
– Sheldon saying “Bazinga”
– Sheldon hugging Penny after she gave him Leonard Nimoy’s DNA. (Best Episode Ever BTW)

I am sorry but these classic moments make The Big Bang Theory take it home for me. So in essence, I would rather cancel How I Met Your Mother. (Wow is it normal to choke up as I am writing this? Jeez man, it’s just a game.)

So what about you? Which would you choose? Barney or Sheldon? Robin or Penny? Speak you mind and let me know what you think below.
