Friends (Tv Show)
 
Best comedy show of all time!

I must of watched each series about 12 times now and laugh even more every time. Every character is funny in there own way.

Personally, I think Ross Geller is the funniest. He just has me in stitches and the voices and faces he does are just hilarious. I'm not sure what my favourite episode is. It's either 'The Fake Tan' one or 'The One Where Ross Is Fine.'

I know it's not what a lot of people like, but I can't understand why. The earlier series aren't exactly the best, but I think it got funnier every series.

Does anyone else watch this? I'll expect some criticism about it, but I still think it's the funniest show on TV and I wish they carried on making more series.

Loved it when it was on air, love it now. I too have watched it lots and lots of times :D

Just doesn't get boring does it...

Whose your favorite?

RS8MB0R8 06-16-2009 03:15 PM

I watch all the re-runs on E4 every night and was in stitches at the one last night where Ross is obsessed with maple candy and raids the hotel room - I have NEVER seen that episode before. :D

Lmao!! Haven't you?

Aww I love that episode!! The way he keeps annoying Chandler when he is trying to talk to the woman at the desk. 'Check again pleaseee'.

Ross Geller = Legend!

Edit:
Love that episode.

Hmmm... I can't really pick, you know. I actually think Ross is my least favourite (sorry!). But the rest? Impossible to pick one.

Really?

How come?

Not being sexist or anything, but I think the girls are the least funniest.

My order would probably be: 1) Ross .. 2) Joey .. 3) Chandler .. 4) Phoebe .. 5) Rachel and 6) Monica.

Janice and Gunther are hilarious as well! As well as a few more added people.

Oh, I don't know. I find him funny when the others make fun of him but by himself not so much. But still, I don't dislike him or anything, just my least favourite.

As of this second, Monica, Phoebe and Chandler would be all tied in my first position, followed - tied as well - by Rachel and Joey and then Ross. But that's right now.

I don't like Monica much. When she says ' I KNOWWWW' that does my head in!

Phoebe is hilarious sometimes, other times she can be annoying. Rachel doesn't actually do much if you think about it, but she is funny.

Chandler is boss though. His sarcasm is brilliant. Joey makes me laugh a lot as well.

Only Fools and Horses > Friends.


Friends is still great though. I think Chandler and Joey were probably my favourites.

Only Fools and Horses are similar in a way that they never get boring no matter how many times you watch them.

I hate missing an episode of Friends though.

Captain Walrus 06-16-2009 04:14 PM

I love it, the best thing about such a long running series like that, even a comedy series, is that the characters really do start to seem like your friends, and you genuinely do care about what happens to them. Some of the humour does get a bit repetitive, but still a great programme!

Only Fools And Horses is great too, for much the same reason

KeepTheFaith2211 06-16-2009 06:09 PM

My brother bought Series 6 back in 2000, and I used to watch each video every night :p It is probably my favourite show f all time, I remember one day finding E4 and seeing that they were showing the new series(7) and I was very excited.

I think series 1 and 2 are probably the best, along with 5. The early episodes are better in my opinion, shouldn't really have got Chandler and Monica together.

Goldsausage 06-16-2009 07:50 PM

I remember when I was just getting into Friends.


I found out the following week would be the final ever episode <_<


And I couldn't agree anymore James, Ross is DEFINATLY the greatest character. He's just so damn awesome, has me pissing myself from laughter.

My mates used to say I was like Chandler :(

KeepTheFaith2211 06-16-2009 07:55 PM

Chandler is my favourite, worst is Monica.

My brother says, and I agree, they shouldn't have got rid of the side characters who were actually funny and had a gimmick, e.g. Treiger, Big Ugly Naked Guy.

kenobi_on_a_prayer 06-16-2009 08:04 PM

Scrubs is the best comedy show of all time.;)

But Friends wasn't too bad from what I saw; I didn't really follow it though.

Some of the stuff you come out with is 'Chandler like'

jbjrsdc 06-16-2009 08:25 PM

For me Seinfeld and 3's Company is where its @.

I've seen Friends here and there over the years, as it's always on the TV, the 3 guys are funny, the 3 girls are annoying. I acutally preferred the Spinoff Joey.

Joey was crap!

Alex 06-16-2009 09:40 PM

Compared to Friends, Joey was in fact crap. Too bad, as I really liked his character in Friends.

Are you kidding me?

Could Chandler be any cooler?

Yvonne 06-17-2009 12:10 AM

Friends, classic!

Best series for me series 4! I love the episode with Brad Pitt in series 8.

Chandler, the best!

jbjrsdc 06-17-2009 12:15 AM

is there a funnier part than when Ross couldn't get his leather pants back on?

Yeah, ones I started. Or the one last night as well.

There's loads funnier than the pants.

Yvonne, that's a great episode with Brad Pitt in.

Ferret 06-17-2009 12:35 AM

Good show. I don't watch it that much (I'd prefer to watch the episodes in order and E4 always just shows random episodes. Can't be arsed to buy the DVDs either) but when I do I find it very funny.

Chandler's my favourite, always has the best lines, but I like a bit of Monica and Rachel too, cause they're fit :)

All good characters though.

I'll let you know when it starts from series 1 then mate.

KeepTheFaith2211 06-17-2009 12:54 AM

I had every series on VHS, and then when the DVD boxset came out, my mam got me it for Christmas. So I have every episode twice :p

Panda 06-17-2009 01:59 AM

It was pretty funny...

6 years ago when they were still actually filming the show. They need to stop running the show, it's old and boring now and they need something new..

I really did enjoy it, but every time I see it on the TV guide I ignore it.... They really really need to stop airing it.

Scubs is awesome!!

Friends is class. Chandler and Ross are funniest. Not too keen on Rachel's character tbh.

RS8MB0R8 06-17-2009 10:14 AM

I really loved Scrubs when I first began watching it and rated it a lot higher than Friends as well but I think it was just because it was 'fresh'.

Now that I have to rely on repeats of both on E4, I don't bother with Scrubs as it just doesn't have the same spark about it that makes it watchable on repeat like Friends IMO. The jokes and humour, although hilarious on the first viewing, lose all the 'boom boom' factor afterwards. In fact, it may be heresy to say it amongst Scrubs fans but I find Dr Cox's rants and sarcasm extremely boring on repeat episodes.

I just don't think Scrubs has the same longevity appeal factor that Friends has.

Couldn't agree more. I only watched a couple of episodes and that was enough. Not funny - at all.

liljovi93 06-17-2009 11:47 AM

I've never ever been a fan of Scrubs! I just can't get into it.

She is hot!

Yeah, the Barbados ones aren't the best...

KeepTheFaith2211 06-17-2009 08:48 PM

I am the only person in the world, but I don't care.

Jennifer Aniston, to me, is not as good as people think she is.
