A night with my ex-F.R.I.E.N.D.S
Every night, before I head to bed (and no matter how tired I am – or drunk), I will watch at least one episode of the sitcom Friends – although sometimes I fall asleep while watching it.
I’m not sure whether it’s because I grew up with it but the show was such a big part of my life. Maybe I could relate a lot to it, maybe I just really enjoyed the acting, comedic timing and the amazing script every week.
Because our TV stations were behind, I actually bought the special edition final episode DVD from Amazon.com. At that time, the box set for season 10 was not released yet so I couldn’t purchase it (at that point, I actually owned the original DVD box set for every season up to then). This meant that I watched the final episode of Friends before the preceeding episodes from that season.
The first few times, every time I watched that episode, I would cry. I really, really love the show. After I got the complete set of DVDs, I started a tradition. I would watch at least one episode a night from season 1 to season 10. When I was done, I would just start all over again.
When the last episode was aired, there was of course a lot of publicity. Oprah even did a reunion of sorts on her TV show bringing all the cast members back together again. She referred to them in the interview – and it broke my heart – as the former cast of Friends. Hence, my “ex-Freinds” reference in the title.
Previously, I had searched frantically online for the episodes but I think I only managed to watch one part. The rest of the videos couldn’t be found, I suspect there might have been rights issues with YouTube and therefore, they were removed.
Well, yesterday, I came by the videos on YouTube by accident! I am so thrilled I found it (although it wasn’t the greatest interview, truth be told) that I wanted to share it with you guys. There are three parts and here there are!
I spent the night watching them (and countless other Friends and, er, Oprah interviews) even though I had to wake up early today. *groan*
