     When you think neat, organized, un-spontaneous, frizzy, fun, kind, caring, your mind probably wanders to your more deranged housecat. Well, stop that, and start thinking about F.R.I.E.N.D.S femme Monica Geller. Fans dissect the shining qualities, for good or ill, making up the “mother hen” star of the show. Monica and Rachel’s apartment boasts more scenes than any Manhattan layaway for the entire season run, for good reason. Monica hosts and boasts, bends-over-backwards for her friends and loved ones, and sometimes turns heads trying to win table-tennis tournaments. Let’s take a closer look at our contortionist, shall we? “Okay,...

I try and stay mindful of the other holidays people acknowledge this season, even though I myself celebrate Christmas, by looking for all-inclusivety in our three favorite TV shows and episodes. By a happy accident, this morning someone asked if I remembered Phoebe Buffay’s Central Perk holiday song? I had. Then I felt possessed to write an article about it. I actually wouldn’t put it past Phoebe to go up to the nearest mall Santa and ask for Christmas wishes for her friends, as she describes in this little number: Went to the store / Sat on Santa’s lap /...

   Someone brought to my attention that show casts—especially comedies, where the set is rife with slapstick and tongue-in-cheek—aren’t always perfect. Acting requires takes, extra shots, that extra go, and the rest? The “bloopers” reel.Once I remembered “bloopers” existed, I had to check out some of F.R.I.E.N.D.S best and brightest blunders.

But what really makes every one of these bloopers shine…even if you’re merely tripping over set, like...

    On the days I feel like I’m suffering from more F.R.I.E.N.D.S withdrawal—I know, I know, ‘don’t you suffer every day from F.R.I.E.N.D.S withdrawal?’—I comb social media websites and see which episodes fans love best. Today, oddly enough, the not-so-hidden Season 10, Episode 3 gem kept sifting out of the mud: The One With Ross’s Tan. Half-tan. “The eight.” Mississippi’s rating went down in the course of a half-hour time slot.   Worker: “You got two more two’s?” Ross: “I am an eight!” Ross tries, and fails, to achieve Monica’s lustrous spray-tan glow this episode, nor does he properly...
