Guys, I just realized there is no 'friends' thread yet!

Do any of you watch the show? Who are your favorite characters? What's your favorite season?

Here's a few pictures ;)

I am so glad you opened up this thread. I meant to open it myself. I am a huge fan of Friends it is my favorite tv series in fact. I have rewatched it so many times and I still rewatch some episodes from time to time. :grin:

My favorite characters are the boys, definitely. I don't like Phoebe. She was never funny to me. Sometimes she can be very annoying, I think.

I love this episode and many others but this one where Ross gets a tan is hilarious.

I just started watching this show (I bought the first 2 seasons) and I love it so far! Phoebe is freaking hilarious!

I absolutely love friends!! I own the whole series on DVD my husband and I watch it every single night!! Love love love :luv:
First off love Phoebe.. Rachel kind of reminds me of myself (although I'm probably a lil smarter;)) and I love Rachel and Ross together! I just can't choose a favorite though. I do love the earlier seasons (3-6) but don't have a favorite of those either.

It's funny because when I first watched Friends I really didn't like Chandler, but after having watched more time I find him more and more hilarious every episode!

My least favorite is Monica, I really dislike her whole character, and she's not even particularly funny. (however I find it so funny how she keeps being teased for being overweight when she was small, poor thing)

Joey is also really funny but sometimes I think the writer exaggerated a bit too much on how stupid he is... Even though that's the whole point of his character ^^
Did you know he made a spin-off of the series after Friends? It's called 'Joey': http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0375355/

Some more funny pictures :)





Come on, you gotta give credit for Phoebe to try! I actually like some f her songs.. Shhh :grin:








And the one with Brad Pitt! Loved it!


Hihi, sorry for all the pics guys :oops:

This is a very happy day - the day when SGF got a Friends thread!
I adore this show! It's my favorite of all times. Me and the boyfriend watch it over and over, and are never tired of it.
It was a little strange, when I saw a video of the cast being on Ellen, and she was playing them their own lines from different episodes, and asking them to finish them - we knew all of them, and they forgot almost everything. it was a tiny bit sad, because I mostly ignore the fact that this was a show, and that they were the actors. I like to think this was real life :D

My favorite by far is Chandler - his sense of humor is pure gold.
I cannot say I dislike any of them though, not even a tiny bit. I think the show was absolutely perfect the way it was, that all of the characters had their huge contribution to it, and that you could not remove anyone from the equation and still obtain the brilliant result that this show was.
The plot was also fantastic - they had a set of amazing writers indeed. They always managed to keep it alive and were very ingenious with the twists, while keeping everything moving forward and making perfect sense.

I think I'm gonna go and write something like "An Ode to Friends". BRB.

EDIT: Jennifer Aniston was one of my first thinspos. Watching her lose weight and tone up during the evolution of the show was fantastic (DAT WAIST). Not up to my standards now, but THEN. My Gawd.

Haha! Ross' weird piano song :lol:



:wtf: You haven't lived.

Till now.
Hahaha, I remember when I watched the whole series for the first time, every episode was new to me..!

I wish I could just erase everything from my memory and watch it all over again :cry:

Please do! And post it here! ;)

I know right! She's so tiny in the last seasons.

I could post in here all day. There are so many moments that I love about Friends. Every single episode has a few good jokes in it.

Please keep on posting so many funny memories.

I love Friends. My least favourite is Monica (I mean I still do like her) but everyone says I'm like her :(. I would have thought I was more like Rachel.
I love all the guys though, except I get really annoyed when they dumbed down Joey - anyone notice he seemed smarter early in the season and then some of the stuff just doesn't make sense in the last few seasons.

Yes! I noticed that too.....and my boyfriend calls me Monica.......my work colleagues call me Joey.

This says a lot about me.

:seeya:

We bought the first series a while back and going to start from the beginning again once we've finished Prison Break :nervous:

I also get annoyed that they made Joey look so dumb sometimes. For example, that scene when Phoebe tries to teach him French because he has an audition and he spells it completely wrong. I didn't find that funny.

Joey is such a sweet guy in my opinion. He was so protective and caring with Rachel when she was pregnant.

Oh, I am talking like they were actually real people. :)

Yes it's true , the silliness is a whole part of his character, but where it gets to the point where it isn't believable anymore.. It's not funny :p

I wish people were like that in real life, it would me so much more fun ;)
