30 Day Blog Challenge: #3

The third day of the blog challenge is....your favourite television programme. I am torn between two programmes here. It is....

Friends versus Glee

I grew up with Friends. I remember being so excited for 9pm on Channel 4 every Friday because Friends was on. The characters are hilarious and SO well written. I have to admit I did shed quite a few tears when it ended. My favourite character is Rachel, her sarcasm is brilliant! My favourite episode is in series ten "The One Where They All Forget Thanksgiving" and Emma is entered into the beauty pageant. It cracks me up every time. I also love the episode when Rachel and Monica pretend to fight over who wants Phoebe's picture frame 'Gladys' - the final scene where Rachel scares the daylights out of Joey in bed is genius.

Lastly, I cannot ever get bored with Friends. There are so many episodes that I have not seen in a while it is quite nostalgic to watch over them again. I have the whole Friends wardrobe box-set at home. For me it one of the best shows ever created, written and acted. When it ended there was not going to be a show that could compete with it.

Until Glee.

Glee is one of those shows that you will either really love or really hate. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. It really is a breath of fresh air and after only the first season I am hooked. I very rarely get into a TV program as I hardly watch television these days. The songs and the way they are sung are awesome. I love how the characters perform the songs to relate to their situation. Plus, their personalities mould so well together as a Glee group. This show has made singing and choir fun! My favourite episode so far is where Kurt and the football team dance to Beyonce's "Single Ladies." I was crying laughter tears and Sue's one liners are priceless. 

Do you like these shows?

I LOVE Friends and grew up watching it as well, even though my mom totally disapproved. Glee has become a sure favorite as well and totally makes my day because of my love of Theatre!!!

Love, Mere

Yay Friends!! Definitely one of my favorites. I watch reruns every day on TV. The finale made me cry pretty hardcore. So good.

I've been a fan of Glee, too... Though this season I haven't been so anal about wanting to watch it right when it's on. I still like it, just not as much? I dunno. Still brilliant.

I LOVE Friends.
I think I can quote just about every single episode word for word. My fave character is Chandler. My friends at uni used to call me 'Monica' (mainly because of my weird organisation everythinghastohaveitsplaceandorder quirks as I'm not tidy like she is!) and my sister thinks I'm like Phoebe.

Fave episodes - the one with Phoebe's boyfriend that was 'hanging out' - Chandler's facial expressions in that episode were PRICELESS. Oh, and Hugsy the penguin! And the one where they have the girls vs guys quiz for the apartment...and when everyone finds out about Monica and Chandler...

...ok. I'll stop now!

Ooooooh, I was a big fan of friends!!!!

But, I have not joined the glee crowd. No matter how many facebook updates I see about how great it is, I just can't seem to get into it.

However, I am overly obsessed with the new show sister wives...even though I spend most nights explaining to my husband why he can NOT have more than one wife. lol

I lovelovelove Friends. We have it all on DVD too. In fact, I'm watching it right now! It's the premier of Season 10, where Joey&Rachel hook up and Ross&Charlie and all the shenanigans. Also, Monica's hair! ;)

I really like Glee too, but I feel like this season is not as fabulous as the first. I'm like four episodes behind, and don't even really care anymore :(
