Friends

Such a great show. Favorite characters are Phoebe and Chandler. What do you all think of this witty and very amusing show?

“Joey: We're going to London, Baby

Chandler: That's not going to get annoying!

Joey: LONDON BABY!!

Chandler: Oh look I was wrong.

Joey: HAHA”

It's one my top 5 all-time favorite shows. It's brilliant in it's own way. Chandler's my favorite character, mainly because I'm a female version of him. I even talk like him. Case in point, yesterday: Me- "Could it BE any colder out here?"

One of my favorite shows too. Have a couple of seasons on dvd and still watch the reruns on TBS. Gotta love Chandler!

I love catching the old random episodes on late night or while channel surfing when nothing much else is on. This cast had the most awesome comedic timing and chemistry. Classic show for sure

I've only seen a handful of episodes, but I loved them. I'd love to catch up with the DVDs sometime.

I'd have to say that it's neither witty nor very amusing. Sorry to hate, but I never was a fan.

I have all 10 seasons haven't watched in awhile though. I got burnout like with Seinfeld since it's on repeats all the time.

I know it's not the greatest show ever, but I always really enjoyed it. Except maybe the first season or two, before things clicked and before I actually liked any of the characters.

The one thing I wish they'd never done was the Joey-Rachel "will they or won't they" storyline? That was horrid.

I loved the show in the beginning and even went to a taping (everyone who made the show was a total perfectionist so they're tapings lasted forever). I think it lasted about three seasons too long, though. The character that faired the worst in all that was Monica, by the end all she did was yell.

I have it all on dvd. Gotta love the Joey/Chandler moment where Joey wants an acting name and Chandler suggests Joseph Stalin.

Friends had a better-than-average writing staff. I won't claim that it didn't have good jokes. But it's the most generic sitcom imaginable. There's basically no premise. Just....friends. Well, white friends, to be exact. And I find that rather boring.

The idea that this show is some kind of gold standard is unsettling, because it's completely unchallenging in any way whatsoever.

It's interesting, though, because I find that the people I knew in high school who loved friends were, in retrospect, very similar in their mutual lack of depth of character.

I never understood the hype of the show until recently when Babydoll recommended it.

Just thought I'd watched a few episodes to see what it's like. I ended up watching 4 episodes every night.
I think I watched seasons 1 - 9 in a month, and ready to start season 10 shortly.

Not my favorite show ever, but it still has some funny moments.
My favorite characters are Pheobe and Chandler.

Monica and Rachel annoy the piss out of me

Dane Cook : stand up comedy :: Friends : sitcoms


Both wildly overrated and insipid. Both denounced by anyone with half a brain.


But actually, That 70s Show was worse.
