Friend's Zealot

Hosted by Hosted by

I miss friends, I really do!!! :-( ...I just cant get enough of them.. ... whenever i watch re runs I cant help but feel nostalgic and i simply yearn for more episodes...I miss Chandler's jokes, Joey's philandering ,Phoebe's eccentricities, Ross's nuptial follies, Monica's idiosyncrasies and Rachel's -well,I jus dig her. Coincidentally, or purposefully, each character has acquired a specific human trait and stuck onto that through all the seasons.

The success of Friends can probably be ascribed to the selection of the awesome cast (Btw Ross is the only one who got the part without an audition)..... When we watch friends (and by "we" I mean all friends enthusiasts), most of us can almost feel the emotions they go through......the ever-existent Ross-Rachel chemistry, the super cool Joey Chandler friendship ; I 'm Monica fussy when it comes to certain things so I can relate to that, Phoebe with her superstitions etc....Friends is unbelievably funny because when we laugh we can actually empathize with the characters....Also, Friends is nicely split up in chronological order, hence there is superb continuity.....Other cool sitcoms that come close to the friends phenomenon are Home Improvement and Frasier.

There are some episodes that are really funny.... Remember when there's a blackout and Chandler gets stuck in an ATM vestibule with a super model...Phoebe's song "smelly cat, smelly cat its not your fault"....the one where Ross gets a tan...all the episodes in London, especially when Chandler and Monica get together....when Chandler and Joey lose all their stuff while Joey tries to make a sale....when Chandler and Monica try to adopt a baby.....Joey gets a role to play as Al Pacino's butt double....And all the retro episodes where Monica looks really fat and Chandler has his funky hair do.

For reasons such as these I really miss them............
