I love watching sitcoms.
From the newest season of ‘Ugly Betty’, ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’, ‘That 70’s Show’, to ‘Scrubs’. I love watching them all. And my all time favorite sitcom would be ‘Friends’.
I think most television viewers are familiar with the show’s six main characters that live and work in New York City. Those six characters would be Chandler and Joey whom share an apartment across the corridors from the apartment shared by Monica and Rachel.The remaining two friends comprise Ross and Phoebe.
Ross is Monica’s brother who has his own place, while Phoebe is full-time masseuse and a part time singer who sings the most unmelodic songs which she composes herself. When each half-hour show starts, we hear the title song ‘I’ll Be There For You’ which is a really catchy tune. Love and friendship are the themes of the sitcom. In fact, although they might bicker with each other over some things, all six of them are wonderful friends to one another.This friendship is sometimes complicated by the fact that Ross has always been in love with Rachel, or when Monica and Rachel fall for the same guy. However, every time one of them gets into some kind of scrape or sticky situation, the others are sure to rescue him or her.
What makes this sitcom so appealing is the cast. The actors and actresses in the show are all very good-looking and talented. Of course, the fact that ‘Friends’ has many witty scriptwriters who give the cast wonderfully clever lines to say helps a lot!The writers also create the craziest situations for each character. For instance, Phoebe has a twin sister she absolutely loathes, while Joey who is sweet but rather a slow-witted actor sometimes finds himself at the weirdest auditions.
The great chemistry all the players share with one another off-screen is evident onscreen, as they meet and chat in their coffee place called Central Perk. Some people might say that ‘Friends’ does not depict good moral values since these young Americans indulge in pre-marital sex, but I do not care, for I love this show for its comedy.
