"I'll be there for you..."

Man I miss F*R*I*E*N*D*S. being on. Sure, I can watch it anytime I want since I have all 10 seasons on DVD, but I miss it being on Thursday night. There was excitement leading up to Thursday night TV, knowing that all 6 of my friends would be in my living room. You know what I mean... I loved them all and can't imagine the show without any one of them. Monica, who clearly I am most like given my need to be in total control, was great. I loved her little quirks. Rachel, who I always strived to be. Great hair and all, she had to be my most favorite as far as her character. Phoebe, well, she was classic - who didn't love her blond-ness and her always catchy "Smelly Cat".

If I had to pick a least favorite, it would have been Ross. But I loved his character and the chemistry between him and Rachel. Chandler was so fantastic, I just loved his sarcasm. And Joey, well he was just plain funny. "How you doin'?" hehehe....

Dare I pick a favorite episode?? I would probably have a different answer each day someone asked me this, but right now I would say the one where Monica proposed to Chandler, "The One With The Proposal". Could it have been any better?!

They were great as individual characters and even better as the six of them together. I miss that show. Might have to pull out those DVDs again soon....

  1. Ah, F*R*I*E*N*D*S... That show is the reaosn that Thursday became my favorite day of the week. Still is to this day, but now for no reason other than, well "it's Thursday. Must See TV Thursday. Don't know what that means? Well, then you're just too young to understand." GOD, I was SO obsessed!!! Season 1 was CLASSIC. Pure CLASSIC. My favorite episode? "The One With All the Poker". Oh, and "The One With the Prom Video" and I think "The One With Ross's Pants" to a lesser degree. "Poker" will always be #1. It had the best combination of all the things that made the show so great: the cast interaction, the comedy, the heart and emotion. Phoebe was always my favorite character (I preferred her Shower Song), second was a tie between Chandler and Ross. Ah, I miss F*R*I*E*N*D*S... (No, you're not a fan unless you insist on typing it that way.) We need a marathon night!!!!!!!!!

    I end my comment with this:

    "I am in the shower and
    I'm writing a song...
    Stop me if you've heard it.
    My skin is all soapy and my hair is wet,
    and Tegrin spelled backwards is Nirget.

    Lather, rinse, repeat...
    And lather, rinse, repeat...
    And lather, rinse, repeat...
    As needed!"

  2. I could write for hours about this topic. Hubby and I watch the reruns at night as we lay in bed. We usually have to change the channel because we get laughing and that does not help the "falling asleep" project. Ross was actually one of my favorites until they introduced Emily. It was downhill for about 2 1/2 seasons. He was redeemed, though, I think. I always just wanted to give him a hug and tell him that everything would be ok. And even though I don't agree with what he did, he and Rachel WERE on a break. :-) My all time favorite episode is the one where he's her lobster. I get goosebumps every time I see it...I've even teared up a few times watching it. There has never been a show as well written or with such a great cast as F*R*I*E*N*D*S. I really do miss it.
