Remembering F.R.I.E.N.D.S

Standard

I am a huge fan of one of the most epic sit-coms of all time- F.R.I.E.N.D.S. And I’m absolutely certain there are millions who still love the show.

Needless to say, I obviously have seen each and every episode ( 24 episodes X 10 seasons = 240 episodes 😀 ). But recently I felt a very strong desire to watch FRIENDS all over again. No, I am NOT jobless! This in fact is a very crucial time of my life. But escapism is my forte.

SO……. This post is an ode to one of my dearest television shows ever.

Things I LOVE about F.R.I.E.N.D.S :

  1. All the actors are (were) so cute! Don’t you agree?
  2. The show is hilariously funny..!! 😀
  3. All the actors are perfect for their respective roles! They all are great actors too.
  4. I love the cohesiveness of the group. Love to see their everlasting friendship.
  5. Show’s scriptwriting is AH-mazzing. No doubts about that. The show makes you laugh and cry from time to time.
  6. Strong character sketch of all 6 of the lead characters.
  7. Chandler and Monica! Bestest couple ever. The episode where Chandler proposes to Monica and vice-versa got (Many) tears in my eyes. It was just beautiful. My eyes still get wet when I watch that scene. 🙂 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyQ9xssFrL4
  8. ROSS! Oh gosh. He’s so damn adorable! Silly at times, honest, has a heart of gold, kind, considerate, passionate. My favorite character.
  9. Rachel! She’s witty, cute, hot, stylish and a lot of other things. Who can not love her?
  10. Chandler’s inappropriate use of humor. He’s such a funny guy.
  11. Phoebe’s sheer randomness. She’s extremely sensible at times and plain dumb at times. Her quirky-ness gives a vibrant color to the show.
  12. Joey’s lovable stupidity! His unconditional love for food (& unquenchable hunger). His cuteness and his smile!
  13. Monica’s dedication for cooking. Her OCD doesn’t distract one from loving her.
  14. They all are GREAT friends. I wish I had a friend as supportive and understanding as these people.

Things I DO NOT like about F.R.I.E.N.D.S :

  1. Show’s ending. Other than not really liking how the show ended, I hated the fact that the show ended! Why couldn’t they give us a few more seasons??
  2.  Joey’s ending. Poor guy didn’t get a chance to find his soul mate / life partner. On top of that was left by his neighbors cum best friends in the end of the series (as Monica and Chandler moved out)
  •  One Thing I don’t exactly dislike about the show but feel very sad about : Monica’s biggest wish right from childhood was to have babies. It’s so sad that she coudn’t give birth to a baby and had to resort to surrogacy.

Though the hoax has been cleared out about FRIENDS ‘Reunion’ season, I still wish to see them together. Rooting for a new season!

They all look different now. They've become old. It doesn't matter! WE STILL LOVE 'EM!!

  1. I rewatched friends in December while studying for the math portion of the gre.

    And it’s still hilarious to watch it as a kid, but I think when you rewatch it during as an adult, a time when you are closer in age to characters you connect with it in a different way. Same thing happened with me and Bridget jones diary, I watched that for the first time in like 10+ years and enjoyed it more as an adult.

    • I totally agree with you!
      I understood the show better after re-watching it as an adult. It was 10 times more enjoyable!
      I liked Bridget Jones’ Diary as I watched it last year 🙂
      By the way, talking of GRE, what was your score?

      • I can’t say my score, because of people linked to my wordpress identity, I over studied verbal and wish I spent more time on math. I did very well on the essay, but I have taken lots of communication courses and philosophy courses especially dealing with logic.

        I’m satisfied with my scores, I just anxious hearing back for graduate schools.

      • Okay, no problem 🙂
        I was not very satisfied with my score though. Thankfully, I did not have to retake the exam.
        Even my grad-school application process is going on. Too stressful!
        Wish you luck.
