Normal The End of "Friends"

Come on, ya'll. You know you have something to say about this! The media bonanza! The crappy seasons! The really really inconsistent $$ of the characters on the show and their ages!

I'm not ashamed to admit that a) I have enjoyed the show in the past and that b) I am very happy to see it end.

I agree on both counts.


I have not watched for the last few seasons....

I'm with you on both counts, Carrie.

I admit, in a rush of nostalgia last month I went and purchased Seasons 1-3 on dvd, but it's good to see it finally end. Over the last 4 or 5 years it really hasn't been all that good, but back in the day it was a really great, generation defining television show.

I'll be watching Thursday night (even though we all know Ross and Rachel will end up together *gag* ).

I can't wait for this show to end. The series was funny at times, but they should have ended the show 3 or 4 seasons ago.

Yep. I definitely think they should have wrapped around the time Mondler got married. It's ending how everyone would expect.

I'm so sick of hearing about this damn show...I haven't watched in regularly in five years. It was good, then a few of the characters really started to get on my last nerve. I enjoy catching the older ones (aka the good ones) on syndication every so often.

Friends is ending? I hadn't heard, they should advertise an event like this.

Friend of friends?

Is this an untimely trap!!!

I was seduced by the greatest thread title ever... although the quotes were put in the wrong place.

Oooooo!!! I'm glad friends will finally come to the end. I've been excited just thinking about that lately.

This is good news.

LOL.

I've never been a regular "Friends" watcher. I've caught a couple episodes here and there while flipping around, but I never really got into the show.

I still love what Bill Maher said about all the talk about this show ending: "The end of 'Friends' is not a national tragedy." I definitely agree that the attention over this is crazy-"Frasier" is ending this season, too, and that's not getting anywhere near the attention "Friends" is getting (and I liked "Frasier"-I hadn't caught these last few seasons of it, but I've seen most of the seasons-'tis a good, funny show). I understand that this show was quite popular, and it's had a very long run, and I totally understand people will be a little bummed to have their favorite show go, and that the cast was sad to end it. But seriously...life will go on without the show. It did when "Seinfeld" left, right? .

I am curious as to what NBC will do next year, though, seeing as they won't have "Friends" and "Frasier" around anymore to attract people.

Hopefully it's a delightful drama about a working woman trying to make it at a pressure-filled fashion magazine. That witty David Spade is just irking to carry another series. Too bad Brooke Shields has that other gig though.

Originality!!!

I will say that last week's episode was probably the worst I've ever seen of this show. They're trying to set up the whole finale, but dammit its supposed to be a comedy, why was there nothing to laugh at? Was that scene with Rachel and Monica saying goodbye in cry-speak supposed to be funny?

I agree, last week's episode was terrible. This whole season has been bad.. If anyone read The Smoking Gun about that woman's sexual harassment suit against the Friends writers- I think that might explain some of the subpar writing

I'm just glad to be rid of Ross

I totally agree with you about last week's episode. A couple points:

1) If you were saying goodbye to your best friends for possibly forever, wouldn't there be more genuine emotion than that?

2) Are you going with your baby alone to Paris, Rachel?

3) Rachel says to Ross "It's been ten years...!" Has it? Maybe for the show, but in Season 1 you were 26. Does that make you 36, Rachel? Because 3 seasons ago (or so) you turned 30.
