    What do people think of F.R.I.E.N.D.S? Is it due for a movie? Maybe you hated it! Bare all in this thread [​IMG]

    Friends is awesome and never gets old.
    Always when there is nothing on TV, there is Friends on E4. :3




    ... See what I did there?

    I, also, completely missed what you attempted to do there, which means by default that you are the one with "de fault".
    See what I did there?

    Also, Friends is very enjoyable.

    Love Friends. I have a full collection on my computer that I watch when I'm bored with surfing. Especially Chandler.

    Absolutely awful, one of the least funny things that's ever been on TV. If you want to demonstrate how terrible it is, laugh along with the laugher track which plays whenever anyone says anything, does anything or looks at someone.

    It's ok. Something to put on if there's nothing better on. It's pretty predictable though.

    Generally people who hate Friends hate sitcoms in general.

    Nope, I love sitcoms - good sitcoms. But this one is just bottom of the barrel, the lowest form of sitcom. It's F.U.C.K.I.N.G.S.H.I.T

    I like Friends. I only really watch a couple episodes here and there though.

    Oh and BTW, please don't tell me you like Two and a Half Men or The Big Bang Theory.

    What's wrong with Two and a Half Men??? I love that show, I have every episode up to the new season which started in US 4 days ago.

    Share which ones you like?

    I only watch friends when nothing else is on. Just like 2 and a half men.
    A sitcom that I really liked, was scrubs when it was still aired here. [​IMG]

    Thank God. But can I ask, do you not like any sitcoms with a laugh track?

    I always imagined the laughter track was to tell the audience when they should be laughing. If the jokes were genuinely funny they wouldn't need prompting.

    I have to say, it's always a minus point. Examples of what I'd consider good sitcoms:

    Spaced
    Black Books
    I'm Alan Partridge
    The Inbetweeners
