What do you all think about Friends? Personally, i love it! especially bits like Ross saying "Unagi" spelling out love while drunk, *high pitched* E! I'm planning to buy the whole series box-set for £40 :O comparing it to the old price of £99, I'll probably rip them all to HDD so i can watch them anytime :D

I bought the boxset and watched it all during Christmas 08; great value. I'd love to be as witty as Chandler. :)

I love it too - but some things really annoy me!

Like the little bits they show of the outside of their flat when the camera pans up the building. The shop at the bottom CLEARLY isn't Central Perk and there's no balcony whatsoever on the building.

Sad, I know, but it annoys me!

it may be old macdawg but to me its still the perfect comedy series, its 87 hours to watch the whole thing, 87 hours of pure comedy. Btw i love the monkey, what was his name again?

I'll probably get the box set in a few years, it's still quite fresh in my mind from when it first aired. Wasn't bad but not great either.
Then again I also liked Roseanne :eek:.

The entire box set is quite cheap these days however iTunes still want around £11 per season. :mad: I have the first 7.

I'll be taking a break from this thread.
O Rly? :p

Friends is a classic... although I guess, if one were being truly retro, one would go and re-discover the Mary Tyler Moore show instead. :) But I think Friends also celebrates the (at least temporary) end of the sit-com as a focal part of the American weeknight entertainment ritual. Nothing that has come since really comes anywhere near it.

i never really got over friends. from about 1998->2003 it was on tv@7pm-7.30pm. then i had a little break, in 2007 we got austar tv and they have friends on daily, then in 2009 i got all the seasons - i watch a good 4/5 episodes most nights before i go to sleep. it takes me a while to get to sleep sometimes.

there are so many that by the time i get to the end i can just go back to the beginning :)

Did Roseanne air in Britain? Or did you watch it another way?

I love friends! I'm not very old, but still remember clearly when the very last episode aired in the UK. I remember being jealous of one of my friends because it was airing a day early on E4 and I didn't have that channel :p

Roseanne aired in the uk in the late 80's. Was very good! Can't beat friends though.
