Friends: A Completely Unsolicited and Vaguely Thorough Review of the Entire Series

Despite being a huge lover of sitcoms, there’s quite a few that I like, but haven’t watched in their entirety, or in order. Friends ran from 1994 to 2004 and despite enjoying it whenever I caught it on, I never saw the entire series, and I definitely didn’t catch it in order. So I decided to finally right that wrong and I set out to watch every episode from start to finish in their proper order. That was quite the journey!
I’ve decided to compile some of my thoughts on the show as I progress through it. Watching ten years of a show is quite a commitment and I had to talk about it somewhere… I know… no one asked for it, but you’re getting it anyways!

Top Ten TV Characters I Loathe

Last week we said goodbye to my favorite NCIS character: Abby Sciuto. I was really bummed when I first heard that she was going to be leaving the show after playing such an integral role in it for 15 years. I’ve honestly struggled to understand how the show could feasibly continue without her, especially after the team has seen so much loss in one way or another, in recent years (Ziva and DiNozzo being the most poignant departures). But alas, the show must go on…

I often think about the television characters that I love. The ones that make me laugh, or cry, or whom I just feel some sort of connection to. It’s easy to think about all the characters who are such an important part of the team, and it can be difficult to picture a show without certain characters. This might be an unpopular opinion, but while I wasn’t a huge fan of Derek Shepard (sorry!), it was still really hard for me to envision the show without him. Some shows continue along after the loss of significant characters, and others don’t. I know that many still aren’t over losing Derek. I get it, even if I don’t feel the same sentiment towards his highness. 😉

But today, I’m not looking to talk about my favorite characters or the ones who have had a strong impact on myself, or the program in which they exist. Today, I want to talk about the characters I loathe. The ones that make me cringe – who, no matter how many times I’ve seen a particular episode, still irritate the piss outta me. Read More »
