The One Where She Watches Friends

Friends Logo

I have a confession to make. I’ve never watched Friends. Well, I’ve watched maybe a handful in my lifetime, but never really paid attention.

So here I am, potentially a third of the way through my life, and I’m just watching this thing. I’ll share reactions to each episode when I watch them, potentially sharing multiple episodes at once, SO SPOILER ALERT for everything. 

SPOILER ALERT for those like me who have not watched the show either. Well, here goes!

Season 1, Episode 1: The One Where Monica Gets A Roommate

  • Well, here goes…
  • Oh, 90s style should never make a comeback.
  • These characters are very over the top – mostly Rachel and Ross. I kind of want to mute this when Rachel talks…
  • I need to keep in mind this is just the Pilot, so it’ll be a little messy.
  • Phoebe is interesting.
  • S1E1Phoebe’s acting is on point.
  • I do like Rachel’s hair, though.
  • A box TV set! Throwback!
  • Poor Paul.
  • So this was in front of a live audience, but the laughs were definitely modified.
  • Oh, Paul… Noooooo….
  • Yup, Rachel is a whinebag…
  • They’re all baaaaabies.

Season 2, Episode 2: The One with the Sonogram at the End

  • Back at Central Perk. I do like this setting.
  • The theme song is catchy, but of course I knew that before jumping into this show.
  • Lots of unnecessary movements for a TV show – head bobs, extraneous hand movements, etc.
  • Oh, so here’s the lesbian ex. I love that she’s not a stereotype.
  • I like Monica and Phoebe so far.
  • Ugly naked guy, huh? 
  • That lasagna looks awful.
  • This sidebar conversation between Ross and Monica would be overheard so easily.
  • Good delivery on the Carol situation.
  • Wait, people used to go home with videos of their sonograms?! 
  • It does look like a little sack of potatoes. Baby J did, too.
  • Oh, Rachel, you were doing so well. Kind of.

The One Where She Reviews Friends

A New Livre It To Me

I’ve been toying with the idea of overhauling this blog for quite some time, so here goes. Book reviews are great, but I’ve been drawn in many different directions, so reading is at a much slower pace. Editing, family, friends, theater, TV, relaxing, taking care of myself.

With this in mind, knowing this blog is just sitting here, I found myself wondering why I don’t move into reviewing other forms of entertainment, such as tv shows, movies, theater, and whatever else may come up. 

Consider this blog a life blog now. I’ll still review books, but there’s going to be a lot more going on here now. I understand if that means I lose followers, though I do hope you’ll stay.

Up first? Check out my next blog post to see which TV series I’ll be responding to as I go.

2018 A-Z Blogging Challenge – M

I’m taking part in the A to Z Challenge again this year and my topic is Writing Prompts! I tend to have a close, intimate relationship with writer’s block, so I figured I’d turn this year’s challenge into one that can hopefully help a few others let loose with their words. For those who aren’t authors/writers, definitely still participate! The more the merrier. Have fun with this!

Here we are for letter M!

Write for as long as you want/need, share in the comments (if you are comfortable doing so), and pass word along to your friends. Follow my blog and Facebook page to get all these A-Z posts and more.

Happy writing! ~Samantha
