Day 4: Television Meme

My Favorite Show

So much has been written about my favorite show: Friends.

I'm not sure what's left to say. It's the go-to show for me whenever I'm feeling anything. Sad, happy, in need of a laugh, tired, angry, excited. 236 episodes of some great comedy. Well, some episodes do misfire a tad (The One with Russ), but when it's good (which is about 200+ of these episodes) it's really good (The One with the Red Sweater). I was too young to watch the series during its incredibly successful, 10-year run on the now-failing NBC. But I found the show in reruns, and now I own all ten seasons on DVD and regularly (very, very regularly) watch them.

Some random musings:
-Season 6 is the best. No wait, Season 9. No wait, Season 5. I can't choose!
-My mind changes on the order of my favorite characters all the time. I posted it on Andrew's blog a little while ago, but I don't remember that order. The order as of today: Phoebe, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Joey, Ross.
-I usually can't bring myself to watch the final episode because it makes me cry. There, I said it!

One day I might rank all of these episodes, is there demand for that though? Sound off in the comments if there is! Also, what are your thoughts on Friends?


  1. You have great taste, Jude. :) And yes, we need a ranking of the episodes. Start the extensive project ASAP!

  2. Lisa K looks so beautiful in that photo (she's so easily the prettiest friend though it's often forgot).
