My favorite TV show

Don't suppose you can guess what my favorite TV show is, can you?

Why, of course, it's Friends! Friends began airing in the Fall of 1994 while I was in college. I have the fondest memories of gathering around the TV with my sorority sisters and watching the newest epi before getting ready to go out on Thursday night. It's also one show that the husband and I agree is absolutely perfect comedy- for a few years right after we got married, reruns were airing at 10 pm weeknights, so we always watched Friends right before we went to sleep.

I have to admit to you that I'm a little bit Monica. Oh, who am I kidding, I'm totally Monica. Totally. I even have a phone pen.

As you can see above, I have all 10 seasons on DVD (randomly, Season 4 does not have a 4 on the spine). Note that Season 1 is not in the pic, because it's in our bedroom since I was watching it while running on the 'mill recently. I watched the entire series, in order, several times while doing the Couch to 5K plan. It was such a fabulous distraction and really kept me going on the exercise plan.

Here's a partial list of some of my favorite epis:
  • Holiday Armadillo
  • "It Tastes Like Feet!" English Trifle/Shepherd's Pie
  • Vegas
  • Ross's Teeth
  • Ross Got High
  • Leather Pants
  • Monica and Ross's Dance Routine
  • Pivot
  • Jellyfish
  • Switching Apartments/Chanandler Bong
  • All the flashback epis/Fat Monica

I could go on and on.... What's your favorite episode? Any I missed?

I love Friends and own all the seasons, too. My favorite scene is at Monica and Chandler's reception when Rachel takes the pregnancy test, what a great scene!

I adore Friends! I could watch it over and over and still love them all. Our couple friends refuse to play the trivia game with me ever again....I beat the pants off them every time!

My favorite episodes:
- Ross' music (keyboard and the bagpipes)
- Any Thanksgiving episode
- Emma's favorite song (Baby Got Back!)
- The Ultimate Fighting Champion (gotta love Gutter from PCU!)
- Rebecca Romijn as the 'dirty apartment girl' Ross dates.

God, I could go on and on...

I was literally envisioning all of these episodes! I love when Chandler goes to Yemen to escape Janice and when Joey puts Chandler in a box. How about the episode with Denise Richards when they all fell in love with her. That is still my favorite show EVER!!!
