"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?

Eh, i tak minat Friends. I still don't know why! Dah cuba menonton, tapi masih tiada perasaan. Kahkah.

I don't really have fav sitcom coz i'm more into Law & Order, CSI kinda series (Eeee tak dak sense of humour kah aku?). Sukalah tengok Everybody Loves Raymond, 3rd Rock From The Sun etc tu tapi tak macam i suka siri macam CSI. But my husband is a big fan of Arrested Development.

Reena: I think you dah pernah bagitau you don't like it. Haha tak acilah jawab drama, itu entri lain nanti. Ini kategori gumbira. Heh.

Becker,
Friends,
Everybody Loves Raymond,
That 70s Show,
3rd Rock From The Sun.

It was only Friends though that I finished watching.

But, before all these, anyone still remember Mad About You and Home Improvement?

(Haha, you are probably old too if you still remember these two.)

So this is the sitcom section, when the drama post coming up?

Rin said...

Kaki sitcom juga! Dari zaman Full House, Sabrina The Teenage Witch hingga zaman Hannah Montana :D

yatt said...

sbb skang dh xde friends, so layan HIMYM lah.. kalau pasang dua2 tu pada masa yg sama, mestilah friends menang.. am!! nak one complete season.. cakap nak carikkannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

Marliza Radzi said...

X: Suka Home Improvement! JTT! Hehe. I remember Mad About You tapi tak tengok sangat, maybe dulu it was irrelevant to me. Heh.

Rin: Hannah Montana comel jugalah.

Sato oreo: Haha you listed tv drama, not sitkom.

Yatt: Eh babe, kan aku dah pernah tweet pada kau aku cari di tempat yang aku beli tapi tak ada yang murah. Kalau box set DVD pirate, adalah, tapi taklah murah. Almost RM200 (maybe more?) juga rasanya.

~SaTo OrEo~ said...

eh eh.. terkeluar topik rupanya.. :P ngehehe.. ades.. nampak sgt tak layan sitcom..uhuhu..(*_*)

Marliza Radzi said...

Haha I suka layan sitkom sebab dia kejap. Dan tak perlu follow semua episodes ikut turutan sangat.
