I liked it too but it seems we're a minority :( It only has ~14 chapters.
Then again, this means I can recommend for you to watch them without worrying about losing too much time on it :wink: And afterward, the movie "Serenity" which pretty much finishes it.

How can that be?
Everyone knows I have no friends.

You let your boss know you are slumming around forums on work time? tsk tsk tsk.

He must be a pushover.

Does your boss have a first name starting with a letter of the alphabet?

Let's see...
Ris sjen...

- Rome
- Lost
- Medium
- Southpark
- Family Guy
- That 70s show
- Frasier
- Lil' Bush (in this category also the Daily Show, but that's not really a series) / (yn dizze kategory ek the Daily Show, mar dat is gjin echte searje)

I'm sure I'm forgetting something. Well, I also like most (old) animated series like Alfred J. Quack. :partyhat: And I think I'll check out the Greek series στο παρά πέντε soon.

Ik ferjit grif wat. No, ik mei ek in protte oer 'e measte (âlde) tekene searjes lykas Alfred J. Kwak. :partyhat: En ik sil tink de Grykske searje στο παρά πέντε ek fluch ris besjen.

Oh my god. It's the first time in my life that I see someone saying something different than "Friends is great". I've been called AMAZING in more than one occasion when saying that I never watched Friends, that the only time I tried I lasted about 5 minutes...
My housemate watches it so sometimes if I'm attempting to talk to her I kind of have to, and it occasionally makes me giggle.

I dont really watch TV anymore, so I don't follow anything, only watch whatever is on while I'm eating. 99% of the time is nothing interesting. I still adore The Simpsons, Futurama and Family Guy, but I hardly ever catch them. Oh and I watched Sex and the City with a friend and got into it but again I just watch random episodes when they happen to be on around my dinner time.

Oh and I'm in love with British show Peep Show, I was given a DVD and watched the first two series, then caught up with 3 and 4 on youtube, and the 5th was on a few months ago, though I watched half of it on youtube anyway.

I'm with you! I think Friends is one of the stupidest shows I've ever seen.

Nice choice - I've seen all of them a million times and will probably watch them all a million more! :D

At the minute, I'm really liking Soupy Norman - it's a Polish soap opera dubbed by Irish people - it's freakin hilarious!! check it out on youtube! (although the humour is quite Irish, in the same vein as Father Ted, so might not be funny to everyone...)
The British Isles are awesome - I know, I live there - but Ireland is not a part of them. K thnx bai!

Best series ever:
ROAD TO AVONLEA
Canadian, it was rerun this year about the third time at least, and today there was the last part. It was the most beautiful series ever.

Here's another person who hates Friends. My partner likes it, but thankfully not so much that he wants to buy the DVDs :P I also hate all those other "classics" like Seinfeld, Frasier, X-Files, Everybody Loves Raymond, etc.
