Okay, I didn’t really have anything to blog about so I decided to write a review of the show practically everyone’s seen except possibly those lizards who keep living under rocks and everyone in North Korea. I mean that really is one of the best ways to act as a conversation starter. Everyone’s pondered the question as to whether he’s as funny as Chandler, as flirty and as voracious an eater as Joey and as for Ross, well that begs the question, ‘He ends up with Rachel?HOW!?’, whether she’s as crazy as Phoebe, as much a Martinet as Monica or as spoiled as Rachel. But I digress.
Moving along to the review, the first and foremost thing thing that struck me about the show was that it sucked. Okay! I am kidding! I loved it. It was brilliant. It thought it had killer dialogues when I saw it at 14 years old and I still think it has killer dialogues now when I watch and episode for the nth time. The situations were awesome, the plots were nice. The first few seasons were epic stuff. I mean how do you make six friends hanging out seem so awesome? I wanted a group like that. I wanted to lead a life of debauchery and enjoyment. Scratch that. I still want to live a life of debauchery and enjoyment. Cause those people seemed to having just the best time. You know the best part? The bloopers are seriously amazing. The real on stage behind the scenes camaraderie between all of them is awesome and kinda explains how they convey it on the screen so well. And somehow somewhere it seems to bring a sense of nostalgia along with it. Cause when I watch the show again it just brings back memories of when I used to watch it 7 years ago. Like some jokes which were too adult for me to understand then and which I get now.
In conclusion, Friends forms an integral form of our childhood and its one I am proud to have. So if you haven’t seen it yet, you can do two things. Either go out and shoot yourself or tell people you have watched it while surreptitiously speed watching it so that you can defend yourself when the truth comes out.
