Super

ProVery funny show.

ConsApart from their pay nothing.

Ah, the joy that is the television series known only to most of the planet as Friends - and I guess in whatever language or version you are watching of it! But how does one keep all the magic that came about from this, in one small and humble review? Well, I am at least going to try and give it a...

“There'll always B There 4 Me”

published 14/09/2007

Proamazing actors, eppy's and humour.

ConsThey're not consistant.

I have always been a fan of friends from as far back as I can remember, I would have only have been three when the first ever episode came out, so I can't say I watched it from the start, but I came into the show around the 5th season, which ironically is my favourite. It's a simple concept, 6...

Prolaughs all the way through.

Consthe adverts in the middle

ProSide-splittingly funny!

ConsAren't any...

I often ponder – Has Friends had its day? Is it getting less funny, and more desperate? I’m not quiet sure. After hearing that series ten was the final astounded me. I had often heard a rumour that it was finishing after each series, but for this to be confirmed officially by the real...

Prohalf an hour of escapism and good laughs

Consscripts not as sharp as they used to be

Friends – a group of six people who hang out together, have relationships with different people (and each other) and generally appear to enjoy life. The six Friends are Chandler, Joey, Monica, Phoebe, Rachel and Ross. Here is my A-Z to characters both current and past who make up the cast...

“MY FAVE ALL TIME COMEDY SHOW”

published 16/08/2001

ProGreat program

ConsGetting old and beginning to wear thin

Over the last few years Friends has surely been one of the best TV shows around, it's highly entertaining and really great to watch. The TV comedy has now been around for a grand total of 7yrs and in that time 7 series have been made and shown on national television, the famous cast are now in...

“Friends no more”

published 12/07/2001

Prowas superb when it started

Consformat ran dry

Is it time to break up the friendship? It may be harsh reality, but I think it is time for the bubble to burst for our 6 musketeers. We all know the format, 6 friends, 3 girls and 3 blokes living virtually in each others pockets. They've been through college together, they've done this that and...

ProWitty, engaging, well written

ConsGlossy, canned laughter

Friends Generally, I have little or no time for American sitcoms (for every Frasier there are fifteen Veronica's Closets), especially American sitcoms set in coffe bars and apartments, and most especially when they feature monkeys (BJ and the Bear anyone?). Friends however, has grown on me and I...

ConsBecoming a victim of it's own success

Friends is perhaps becoming a victim of it's own success - it does at the moment seem to be one of those shows that is fashionable to dislike and even it's fans say it is losing it. I have to say I'm a massive a fan of the show and will watch it til it ends. People say it is in decline but this...

ProFunny, Fresh and Great characters

ConsNew episodes on E4

I know there have been lots of reviews of Friends but as its my favourite TV programme I have to review it. Friends mainly revolves around the lives of 6 characters. They all live in New York and tend to meet up in either Monica or Joey's apartments or their favourite coffee shop Central Perk...

“Friends”

published 08/07/2003

ProFresh, witty, original

ConsNot so fresh, witty and original anymore

Everyone knows what Friends is, and if you haven't heard of it - where have you been for the past decade?! If I had to sum it up in one sentence it would be: it's a light-hearted American sitcom following the daily lives of a group of six twenty/thirtysomething friends living in New York. It is...

The 6 friends are- *Monica* Monica is beautiful, but a compulsive cleaner. Monica works as a head chef, and once cleaned 7 dirty cars outside her apartment...
