I did not know that about her being pregnant and such. Interesting.

Watching post-Emily FRIENDS. Tonight caught up to “The One with Chandler’s Work Laugh”, which is the one in which Joey is seen with copies of GENERATIONS.

 QUOTE:
My paternal grandmother was 4'11", as was one of my College girlfriends. Now THAT'S short.

My wife is 5'. At 5'10", I'm the munchkin in my family. But the height difference definitely ruins any dancing cheek to cheek. (Her best friend is 4'11", so it's always a double-take for me to see them together and observe a person finally shorter than my wife.)

Speaking of my wife, she recently marathoned through all of FRIENDS herself, and I caught some of the episodes with her. I was surprised not to have recalled how many of my favorites were in the early seasons, even Season 1, and how by Season 4 the show was losing its charm. If not for the new romantic engine of Chandler & Monica, I am not sure that Season 5 would have held onto me as a viewer. In any event, in realtime viewing, Season 6 lost me.

FRIENDS held me until Season 9. Season 10 they lost me to TRU CALLING.

My mom used to be 4’9”. She has shrunk in her old age to 4’7 1/2”. The way cars are built now, she can’t even see out the door windows in the driver’s seat.

That's funny. Season 5 is when I started watching and became a fan (had only seen 2 episodes before that point), and it and season 4 are my favorite seasons of the whole series.

Season 5, which I’m currently watching, is probably my favorite. In later seasons the show began to fall victim to the real world, as with writing in Jennifer Aniston’s anticipated pregnancy, which didn’t happen.

The secret Monica-Chandler relationship of season 5 was a great hook for someone like me who was aware of the show but not that familiar with it. I remember feeling weird at how quickly it seemed to be over years later watching the whole series on DVD when it only made up a night or two of binge watching instead of playing out over several months or even a few weeks in syndicated reruns (the once daily kind, not the current 6-8 episode blocks of today on TBS or Nick).

The season that really hasn't held up as well for me these days is season 8, which for a long time, including when it first aired, I would have put right up there at the top. And it did win the show's only Emmy for Best Comedy. But the farther we get from the context in which it first aired, where it was comfort food for so many of us right after 9/11, it feels more "ordinary". It still had a few gems like the Brad Pitt episode, even if that one feels kind of sad now in its own way.

Just starting Season 6, and remembering this is when Ross began to turn more and more into a caricature, a cartoon even.

An odd direction to have taken Ross in, wasn't it, considering he was among the "friends" the romantic lead from the start? Meanwhile, originally quirky oddball Phoebe had ultimately had a much more balanced character even up to the final episode.

Ross, with his failed marriage (to a lesbian!) and unrequited love for Rachel, started out of a sad sack, but kind of devolved into the writers punching bag.
