with no Big Brother and no Friends they might as well turn the signal off during the day time on weekends .
There's no annoying ad breaks and no stupid editing by Channel 4 when it's on during the day.
Thank fuck, Frankly.
There's very little that they can show on there once you take out these two schedule-swamping behemoths.
didn't you read when they announced big brother was being cut that c4 is gonna spend big bucks on producing quality drama, film and comedy? I for on completely believe them and look forward to it immensely.
Scrubs next please.
what the fuck is the point of e4 then?
this will make me finally buy the boxset mind...its only 40 quid!! Must be one or two episodes in there im yet to see
feeling when I'm watching Friends anymore.
It feels so wrong.
I've never got why they don't show The Simpsons on there.
I got confused.
They have the rights; surely they can do what they want with them.
EVERYONE watches the Simpsons
...fuck The Simpsons. What is it with this veneration of The Simpsons? Ground breaking in the 90s...dead as doormat in this ''shining'' new era.
I think the Simpsons is very meh.
TV deals are either for a certain length of time or a certain number of plays - this friends one certainly seems to be the former.
maybe there's a rights conflict with Sky1 for The Simpsons, idk. my knowledge on this subject is rooted in the past when there was a far clearer analogue/digital/satellite/terrestrial divide.
I WONDER. Or maybe they just realise it would be mutually beneficial not to directly compete.
you're all idiots!
Just stop it, will you.
A Passion for Angling every week.
when you turn over and it's a really early one.
But then neither will there be the dizzying high of finding it's the one where Rachael puts beef in the trifle.
^ Ban this mental, please.
Series 1 and 2 are alright, then it went really shit for about three seasons, then it picked up again at the end. The last couple of series were as good as the first few.
plus that fucking monkey in loads of episodes. Who thought that would be a good idea? Had they just has a lobotomy?
The season featuring Emily and the subsequent couple are the worst for Ross's boring whining. Then they realised that they could turn him into a neurotic baby for the last few seasons and he became awesome again.
what's wrong with you
she's even hotter when she looks and dresses like my old german teacher
Because Early Simpsons was pretty patchy.
I like watching early Friends more now-1. Because there's a chance I might not have seen it, and 2. the characters aren't yet parodies of themselves, and it has a more laidback and naturalistic feel.
getting home from work, brewing some tea, sitting down and happening across the one with ross' leather pants
"Your timing couldn't be better, I'm putting out fires all over the place!"
It's the coolest/least cool I've ever been.
but now it's gone TOO FAR.
with Jennifer Aniston's weirdly hot chubby legs.
she gets far too skinny in later episodes
she's still damn hot though
Rachel in waitress miniskirt = guaranteed wood.
I wish one of my girl friends was a waitress. :(
So I'm with on this one, is what I'm saying.
it's the (for want of a better analogy) coldplay of sitcoms. Not offensive or anything, I can sort of zone out and watch occasionally, maybe 3 laughs an episode.
Will and Grace is better. Srsly.
will and grace better than friends?
you're having a fucking laugh mate
also late friends > early friends > mid friends
EVEN MORE TIME FOR COME DINE WITH ME GUYS? MAYBE A LITTLE BIT OF COACH TRIP???
there should have made Gunther
and hits on a different unobtainable lass every week?
That a spin off of Chandler would have effectively created Curb Your Enthusiasm earlier than the original show, that you understand the genius of Friends' character writing.
to show my outrage but only managed to pull off a little number two. Teehee!
Friends is brilliant, I can't believe anyone would be so cretinous as to believe otherwise.
Friends is gash, I can't believe anyone would be so cretinous as to believe otherwise.
(I spent all night on that one)
Unfortunately it's only funnier than most Friends episodes.
I was upset too at first, BUT it's only effective from Autumn 2011 - plently of time to video tape all the episodes off the telly.
Betamax has been the leading format for years now.
1998 was the pinnacle for all things great, WWF (ATTITUDE), Action Man, N64 (!)
I gave up Friends.
She gave up Heat magazine.
We've both been clean for 8 years.
I think we both came out of it as better people without any regrets.
just because the dots between letters are driving my OCD self round the bend... F.R.I.E.N.D.S. ??! Fuck off, it's Friends!!
(ps i'm aware of the irony of bumping it...)
Too many dots, my friend.
And you have the gall to claim OCD?
worth a bump
