You know how they say love can get you through most things in life? They’re retards. F.R.I.E.N.D.S is what will get you through pretty much everything in life. That too without asking for anything in return. And it doesn’t leave you broken hearted in the end, because once it’s done you simply start over.
F.R.I.E.N.D.S -1 Love -0
If you’re having a bad day, and this show cannot cheer you up, you’re REALLY screwed. Here are 5 reasons (not that we need reasons to state the obvious) why F.R.I.E.N.D.S is still the Sachin Tendulkar of all sitcoms!
1. The F.R.I.E.N.D.S
By the time you’re done watching the show, there’s a Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler and Ross inside each one of you. At some point or the other, you’ve lived the life of each character albeit for a little while, and that is what makes it so relatable. You might not have a gay ex husband or a third nipple. Nor must have you gotten a turkey stuck on your head. But we’ve all had a Janice, fallen in love with a best friend, and used an alias to pick up women.
2. The H.U.M.O.R
The show started 22 years ago, the show ended 12 years ago. Till date whenever you’d watch an episode, you’d laugh harder than you did the last time you saw it. The show’s humor is timeless. A lot of the scenes don’t even need words. The expressions and the reactions are in themselves good enough to make you go bonkers. ( 7 7 7 7 7 7 #ifyouknowwhatImean ).
You don’t need double meaning jokes in every episode, or boobs flashing, or messed up sex scenes to make it click. It just does because it’s effortlessly portrayed and the wit, sarcasm, and sheer weirdness of the jokes is beautiful. Now there’s a whole new generation discovering the show and they can relate to it all the more. Well that’s because these days you have your heart broken at 13, find new love at 15, and with the number of partners that an individual has these days there’s a fairly good chance you’d end up saying the wrong name at the altar. Damn!
3. The T.E.A.R.S
There’s plenty a times in the show where you’d probably break down, or have a tear in your eye (YES, IT’S OKAY TO ACCEPT IT EVEN IF YOU’RE A MAN). The Ross-Rachel breakup, The Lobster, Chandler-Monica proposal, Phoebe’s wedding, Rachel getting off the plane, everybody leaving their keys in the apartment in the end is just some instances where the show left you in waters.
These were happy tears (well most of them) in hindsight, because a lot of the situations turn out for the best later. But as much as it makes you happy, there’s plenty about the show to tickle your sensitive side. The last scene where the keys are left on the table is probably single-handedly more sad than all of Taylor Swift’s breakups combined a million times.
4. The R.O.S.S AND R.A.C.H.E.L
Now before I go into details into this one, ‘WE WERE ON A BREAK’ is never to be used as an excuse for sleeping with someone else (although they probably were on a break at the time). If there’s ever anything that makes you believe in Happily Ever After, it’s THIS! That scene where Rachel says ‘I got off the plane’. You’ve got to be either Kirsten Stewart or dead inside to not be left water-eyed. The way it’s set up, through all the turbulent times and the many partners they go through, the way both of them end up together. The story just writes itself.
5. HOW YOU DOIN’
For anyone who’s followed the show religiously, you know the memories you carry are priceless. Even though there are a lot of decent shows out there, nothing can ever compare to F.R.I.E.N.D.S. It’s like once you’ve had sex with Mila Kunis, you won’t mind doing Sunny Leone. But you know it’d never be as good as it was with Mila. Or once you’ve been wowed by George Clooney, you’d still go out with Hrithik Roshan but you’d always have George in your thoughts.
Lastly, if you are of the opinion that HIMYM was a better show than FRIENDS or even bother comparing the two, please throw your laptop/PC/cellphone down from your balcony and then jump behind it to save it because that is exactly where your IQ level stands.
Could you BE any more STUPID?
The next time someone asks you to find a better show than F.R.I.E.N.D.S, ask them to come back when Ross hates marriage, Phoebe becomes normal, Monica can live in a dirty environment, Chandler isn’t funny, Joey shares food and Rachel doesn’t return gifts.
