    I know it was a new episode, but I can't help thinking that I've seen this one before. Ross and Rachael are so close to being together that you can almost feel it, then something gets in the way. Then they fight like little kids over it.

    It's getting really old now. We all know they're going to end up together - just make it happen already! Quit dragging it on. The writers need to come up with an original storyline for a change.

    I've come to realize that the reason I love & hate Friends is because the writers are brilliant at jokes, but lousy at story. Yes, we all know Ross & Rachel will get together. Or else they'll "surprise" us and they won't get together. At this point, who cares? They've waved Ross & Rachel in our faces for how many years now? It's stupid. I miss when the days when the Friends were FRIENDS and not all banging each other or trying to bang each other.

    Nonetheless, I find that whenever I tune in (like last night) I can't help but laugh at the gags. The show would be so much better if the situations weren't always about the characters getting together/not getting together.

    The nanny is Melissa George of "Dark City" and "Thieves" fame.

    Screw Ross. I wish they would kill him off! That's comedy to me.

    Joey and Rachel, now that's what I wanna see. [​IMG]

    No way! The "lovable doofus" syndrome is stale. Let the geek get the girl (a plot line that has NEVER been used before)... [​IMG]
