    I just caught about half an episode that my daughters were watching. That show has not held up well at all. I was never really a fan, but I remember at least being a bit amused. Now I just found it had questionable writing, below-average acting, and a very annoying sense of humor.

    There are genuine laugh til your sides hurt moments but those are few and far between.

    The whip episode still cracks me up

    I sometimes watch a bit when reruns are showing and it truly doesn't stand the test of time. the early episodes were passably funny, the latter ones are shitty and the characters are but empty caricatures of themselves.

    The earlier seasons were funny. I still watch them. After Chandler and Monica got married, the writing went down. But there are still some funny episodes.

    I never understood why Jennifer Aniston never wore a bra on that show.

    It didn't do any good. Those glasscutters shone through like a couple of pink, pointy morning stars. Not that I minded.

    episode recap:

    ross: I'm a loser and I make sad puppy face because I fucked rachel and now she hates me

    monica: I'm reaching 40 and yet I cannot move on to the fact I was fat back in high school and now I have ocd which my friends think is hilarious

    chandler: sarcastic comments makes me looks so fucking cool, no?

    phoebe: I am dumber than a box of nails but I have a guitar and act spaced out and people find it adorable

    joey: the older I get, the stupider I get

    rachel: my nipples rule them all.
