Has anyone heard of a show called "Friends?"

It's this obscure comedy I found on Netflix, I think it's a Canadian import. It's about a bunch of white people living in Manhattan and it's funny. It's no "Full House" but it's charming. I'm working my way though the whole series.

I found another show called "Seenfield" on Hulu Plus, I believe it's also a Canadian import about white people living in Manhattan and I'm planning on watching that whole series afterwards. The description says it's about nothing, but how could that be? Everything is something. Well it's kind of funny, it's no "Home Improvement" but it's cute.

You should also check out "Everybody likes Raymond" and "Mad about you baby" also a Canadian import.

I like both of those, AFAIK I'd have to buy Mad about You on dvd, but they're cheap. I'd like to stream The Mary Tyler Moo show but there's only 3 seasons available.

Yeah, it's a popular show in the nineties, so is Seinfeld. Didn't watch it too much.

Boring and overrated - that goes for Seinfeld too.

My favorite episode of "Friends" was that one where Chandler acted obnoxious, Joey did something stupid, and Ross didn't get to kiss anyone.

I was about to tell you who hasn't heard of Friends...I guess I'm beginning to show my age....

Glad you're enjoying them. I was not into those shows at all during it's run though I remember the popularity, and everyone including me had the Rachel haircut in the late 90's, and I remember the theme song being a top 40 hit.

I really tried to watch a couple of Friends episodes...but it was just not funny or entertaining at all. Guess I couldn't relate at all.

Seinfeld, on the other hand, is the best network sitcom I've ever watched - and I've seen every episode, probably several times.

Me too, most my age grew up on it, but I really could not get into it even then.

I think I was watching Living Single the time and night Friends was on in the 90s.

I think around that time I kept up with music way more than tv, though when I did watch shows, they were daytime dramas, music documentaries, beavis & butthead and award shows when they were still ok.

Some other good 70's shows are "M.U.S.H" , "Happy Todays" and "Lavern & Suzie".

Friends is okay, Seinfeld I like. Have you heard of 'Fraiser'? I like that show, been watching it almost every night on the Hallmark channel. It's a spinoff from 'Cheers' (which I didn't care for too much).

Living Single was not funny at all, nor was Martin. In Living Color was funny. Liked 227 and Amen.

I'm planning on doing chronological watches of the following now that the dvds have significantly dropped in price.

Cheers (netflix)

Frasier (netflix)

Roseanne

The Nanny

The Golden Girls

I Love Lucy

The Dick Van Dyke Show (netflix)

Three's Company

All in the Family/Archie Bunker's Place

Everybody Loves Raymond (netflix)

The Mary Tyler Moore Show

Wings

The Honeymooners (classic 39)

Mad About You (if 6 and 7 ever get released, damn music licensing issues)

edit: and Designing Women. I may remember some other shows I've forgotten, though a lot of popular ones you may think of I have little interest in.

Check your local library, they may have them.

Frasier is awesome. I miss that show!

I also recommend The Jeffersons and Different Strokes.

I did the comprehensive Cheers and Frasier chronological marathon for a few years, its a great view and its neat that later on in Frasier certain folks pop up from Cheers. I'd love to do all of the Norman Lear programs chronologically someday.
