"All right, look if you absolutely have to tell her the truth, at least wait until the timing's right. And that's what deathbeds are for." - Chandler Bing, FRIENDS.
If you don’t watch FRIENDS, I judge you. I do. And if you’re a fan, I’d feel instantly connected to you, as though there is this special good-taste-in-30-minutes-sitcom bond between us. Haha. Tapi betullah, how can one simply not like FRIENDS? I could watch the same episode over and over again and laugh at the same punch lines, it is that good. And timeless, like P. Ramlee comedies. Their first season was more than 10 years ago yet the jokes are still relevant. At least to me. But yes, to each their own lah kan? Maybe Frasier does it for you. Eeeek.
We managed to score complete 10 seasons box set of FRIENDS on sale and it’s so handy that every time I feel a need for a good laugh, my FRIENDS (pun intended) are just within reach. I’m currently watching the 5th season, when Monica and Chandler are secretly dating. Too cute, really.
How I Met Your Mother cuba membawakan the same premise; a bunch of best friends, always hanging out at a bar (instead of a coffee shop) if they’re not at Marshall and Ted’s apartment (instead of Monica’s) and sometimes they date each other but when that fails, they remain friends. Familiar sangat tau premise tersebut. Hubs call HIMYM a failed imitation. I quite like HIMYM lah, but it’s nothing compared to FRIENDS.
Everybody Loves Raymond, Seinfeld, Gary Unmarried (too bad it only lasted for 2 seasons), Arrested Development, 2 Broke Girls (can’t wait to watch Season 2), The Nanny, 3rd Rock from the Sun (Gordon-Levitt!), That 70’s Show and Scrubs are among my other favourites (Eeek that’s a lot! I used to be a TV addict, remember?) What’s yours?
