Poll question: So, when did "Friends" jump the shark?
Those of you back East should be wallowing in it right now.

So tell me, just when did it cease to be "Must-See TV"?

2. The Triplets story Arc
Wrong and hard to watch on so many levels.

How old was the Half brother's love interest.

How much more stupid could the half brother act.

Yikes and to make it a whole series of shows,
who decided that was a good idea ?

4. never was a fan
I never understood the whole thing, I watched a few shows and thought it was pretty stupid and kind of a ripoff of other good shows with somewhat less attractive stars. (Some were ever *gasp* British!)

It was really obnoxious today when everyone was making a big deal out of the last show and sports bars were having Friend's night and everything. It wasn't even that funny.

6. Ross & f*cking Rachel over until infinity!!!!!
God, that killed the show for me. I can't stand David Schwimmer's annoying whining anyway. Second would be the plot line where Phoebe has a gaggle of kids for her retarded brother.

That show started as a pile of shit, and ended as a pile of shit.
