As I have been re-watching the best ensemble show, the brilliant comedy series F.R.I.E.N.D.S. during every free moment on this experiment week, and going throught all the posts, and things, I realized something. Something, that I have thought of before, too, but now I really undertood it.
Everything that I was looking for in the crimedy show BONES, everything I wanted it to be, and wished for Brennan & Booth, I had already gotten. While watching the ensemble comedy/sit-com FRIENDS, and Monica & Chandler.
(Yes, I realize that I am comparing what most thought were a secondary couple, with the main couple, but I don’t care. For me Rachel & Ross will forever remain the secondary relationship of Friends. But so will Angela & Hodgins (be the secondary cuple of the show for me) in Bones.
So this got me thinking: was I hoping for things happen for B&B because I remembered in the back of my mind the Mondler moments. Even though I did not make the connection right away. But so many of the moments/scenes/things I thought could happen with B&B, and the UST/tension remain (and maybe even get more powerful), for seasons/years.
I am so happy for the FRIENDS writers. They had doubts, but they took the “risk”. And it paid off. Tons. I love them for it. Seriously. I may think differently tomorrow, or in next life, but right now, after considering all the on-screen couples I’ve loved, Monica & Chandler were/are the best! I loved their scenes together since the beginning, but the moment I really knew they should be written as a couple were the beach episodes. I was certain then. And I really don’t know if they had decided this storyline alr eady during those episodes, or was it still undecided. I am sorry the BONES fans won’t get as much awesomeness. So many things that will never happen. Because they just ran out of time. But I guess I shouldn’t care, because the people watching don’t seem to. So I won’t. As long as the viewers are happy with what they’re getting, al’s good. Good luck with that.
btw, I am stunned at my ability to type a “serious” post as this one. While watching the FRIENDS (flashback) gag reel/bloopers.
*sigh* If only I have lived in the US a decade ago. I would have made it my mission to get to at least one taping of FRIENDS.
I apologize for “stealing” this line, but it fits:
THERE ARE/MAY BE MANY TV COUPLES/ROMANCES THAT YOU LOVE,
BUT THERE IS THAT ONE YOU LOVE THE MOST.
