Sitcoms and Me

I love watching Television – it’s a different thing now that I’m struggling for time to catch up with regular viewing of the series on TV. So the deal now is to either grab the DVDs or hunt for downloads.

F.R.I.E.N.D.S remains my all time favourite comedy series. I have watched all seasons a million times over. The two episodes that remain my all-time favourite are the one with the crazy quiz in “The One with the Embryos” and the “One where everyone finds out” – Phoebe saying “They Don’t Know That We Know They Know We Know“

Although I must confess, I haven’t watched Seinfield or Frasier in their entirety and maybe I will get to them someday.

Then came along SCRUBS – not everyone may have liked the series but I liked every character – JD, Eliott, Turk, Carla, Dr.Cox, Janitor, and the madness that took place at the Sacred Heart Hospital.

And of late I’m tuned into How I Met Your Mother. I’ve watched this series in bits and pieces before , so now I’m watching every episode from the beginning. I’m already into Season 5 and needless to say ”Barney Stinston” is ruling the roost with his advices and quotes and ploys. Every character on the show is unique and you can’t but help wonder how they land up doing all the crazy things they do and yet survive their friendships.

As Barney Stinston would say and I’d agree that the show is indeed on the brink of being “Legend…..wait for it…ary”

    Minal,
    I am a die hard HIMYM fan.. if you liked Barney’s antics, you must check his blog. i think this is maintained by the producers and they update it frequently.. you can read so much more about the Bro Rule ;)

      Now that you mention it I must – in real life I may never befriend a Barney Stinston or defend his antics but on TV he makes for great hilarious viewing :)
