i swear. theres nothing i hate more than tv shows that waste perfectly good air in the name of numbing the minds of the american middleclass.
completely unwatchable show that appealed to the most generic middle of the road portion of the lowest common demoninator.
friends lost it when they canceled the monkey, who was easilly the most talented and interesting character on the long running series.
not that friends ever had it.
and i know it was popular and i know that most of my friends loved it and even my truest loved it and the people that i work with love it and my mom probably loved it.
all i can say is the germans loved hitler so there.
hitler woulda loved friends. perfectly scrubbed white people sitting around pretending to have lives. no black people anywhere until the producers realized that although the show was supposed to be taking place in the most diverse city in america, new york, that it had gone years and years and years without having any black people on the show, sending the crystal clear message that in the white-only fantasy that is friends black people are neither funny, interesting, or a good fit for such milquetoast “humor”.
just end already.
in real life jen is married to the most handsome actor in the world and she cant get knocked up. in real life chandler is addicted to pills and monica has an eating disorder and is married to a freak.
think any of those real issues that many people can relate to find their way into the show somehow? of course not. that would involve even a whisp of risk. the jokes might not come as easy, but big deal, there was very little that was truly funny about the show in the first place, so go for it.
if you ask me david arquette is one of the funniest people out there. why wasnt he on the show, and dont tell me its cuz he had a huge career going cuz he never had a huge career going. let him date monica on the show. duh. let him be the coked out freakazoid that he is in real life and then you’ll have a little edge to your perfect little hallmark card of a programme.
in a very special friends have chandler risk his entire career because of the legal pills that he became addicted to. if america loves the friends as much as they seem to let the boy act for once in his worthless life and release the pain he must have gone through as he found himself spinning out of control, only to be saved by one of the most beautiful black women in all of entertainment who will become his girlfriend in rehab: lil kim.
instead friends gave you aisha tyler. who is funny. who is beautiful. but is unlike any black woman that youve ever seen in your life as shes constantly smiling, incredibly approachable, perfectly harmless, and although darkskinned as safe a pick for a “black” character as nbc could have found.
lil kim however is her own woman has her own style and is far more new york than anything one would find in the central perk.
in an era where america has shown that they want reality shows, it is not suprising that friends, the most unrealistic top rated show since leave it to beaver (which had more edge) is now calling it quits.
my only plea is that they get on with it already and die.
