Big Bang Theory & Friends fans are only now realizing that Sheldon and Joey are almost the same character
Two peas in a pod?
Friends and The Big Bang Theory are two of the biggest sitcoms of the last 20 years. One is about a group of friends who hang out in New York and the other is about a group of friendly geniuses who hang out in Los Angeles.
Surprisingly, fans on Reddit have discovered that Sheldon and Joey are more alike than they might first appear, and it’s not just superficial, personality-based stuff either.
They both love sitting in the same spot on the couch, they’re best friends with their roommates, don’t share food, read comics, their dads cheated on their moms, don’t take sarcasm, and are the most childish of their group of friends.
Funnily enough, the most recognizable trait of each of them is what sets them apart the most: Joey is a not-very-bright womanizer, while Sheldon is a genius who has sex twice a year.
Is this a Joey and Sheldon thing or are the characters of the two shows the same? Perhaps. Leonard is the Ross of his group and Penny is Rachel, including the couple’s love story in the first seasons of the series. Howard and Bernadette’s relationship is similar to Chandler and Monica as both boys adore the love of their lives and would do anything for her.
That leaves us with Phoebe, Amy and Raj. The character, played by Mayim Bialik, is weird and marches to her own drum just like Phoebe in Friends, and there was always a special bond between her and Joey, so the fact that Amy and Sheldon are a couple still works. Is Raj the equivalent of Gunther von Friend? As always, poor Raj has the worst stories.
