many dissers will struggle when it is their time to move into a home, my less discerning appreciation of sitcoms will finally become an asset
sometimes when lots of people are replying, I click reply, just to add to the numbers.
I literally remember very little of the supporting cast besides the punchlines and the two prominent ones, they were pretty bad at writing supporting cast of characters weren’t they?
you were right the first time
In fairness, he’s the funniest one when you ignore his creepiness and entitlement
Cant give it a 5 as it wouldn’t even make my top 5 90s sitcoms. But it was very funny and i still find it funny now, although inevitably some of it has dated pretty horribly. 3.5 but ill be generous and give it a 4, for ross mainly.
Culturally important in all of the wrong ways, it stands as a testament to the pre Internet era of humanity in a way many other shows can’t claim to, because it didn’t reflect life but instead was so ubiquitous and successful it changed life which turned to reflect it.
Sexual politics are absolutely all over the place. Gender roles are insane. Fat shaming is basically a key part of the fabric of the show. As is transphobia.
But it gave us Ms Chanandaler Bong.
If Ross wasn’t in the show there would be very few… if any highlights throughout its entire run. He’s unlikable but then again, they all are.

always post this but really is a masterclass in sitcom scenes
sitcom equivalent of musical counterpoint
The Mighty Boosh being ahead of LOST has successfully irked the shit out of me. You’re all dickheads, cheers x
You’re welcome chief I dont even like boosh much and I rated it above Lost
Just remembered the british episodes. Down to 3.
Milky Joe episode of Boosh was a far more realistic portrayal of being stranded on an island
do you think people in the UK drank coffee before friends?
funniest character, worst person
It got rubbish but the early series are really great and still hold up surprisingly well.
Stole a lot from Seinfeld though
Had a better and more rewarding pay off as well. Basically it covered more ground in 30minutes than Lost did in 5 years
