We Found 3 People Who've Never Seen Friends And Asked Them: "What The Hell?!"
How the HELL have you managed to never see an episode of Friends?
BEN: "Well, it wasn’t deliberate at first – but over the years, it’s grown into a personal, ongoing, serious mission."
EVE: "I’ve never even been round someone’s house when it’s on, ‘cause all my mates know I don’t like it."
RICH: "I just cannot sit through it. Say you were with a load of people, and they're watching some show that’s in Welsh, and cracking up to it – you’d just get up and leave the room, right? Well it’s like that. I literally can’t understand it."
EVE: "Partly, for me, it’s rebellion – which is weird, 'cause I don’t usually hate popular stuff just to be a snobby dickhead about it. But the saturation of it makes me want to not get involved."
Have you ever been made to feel like a freak for your total lack of Friends fandom?
EVE: "Yes! People get really aggressive about it. It’s like they think you’re some weird recluse, or from planet Zog. It’s like when you quit drinking for a bit and people get aggro about that."
RICH: "If you’re with a group of Friends fans, they’ll gang up on you. They try to belittle you, like you’re the poor kid in school and you don’t have a PlayStation."
EVE: "People are flabbergasted – 'What’s wrong with you?!' And I think that just adds to my lack of enthusiasm for ever watching it."
So, what would you imagine a typical Friends storyline to be?
BEN: "Let’s see, there’s the neurotic one, the sarcastic bastard, the empty-but-fit one, the big tall geek one, the sex-pest one, and the one who’s mentally ill but none of the others seem to notice... And one of them will do something daft, then the others will pile on and get involved."
RICH: "They're either sitting on a sofa, or endlessly walking in and out of each other’s apartments."
EVE: "I’d imagine most of the storylines lean towards Ross and Rachel? I wouldn’t imagine Phoebe gets many episodes focusing on her..."
RICH: "At least on Corrie or Eastenders there are murders, broken bones, the police get involved. Drama! But the police never turn up on Friends…"
Say you were on a date with someone, and it was going really well, but then they revealed they were a HUGE Friends fan. Would that be a dealbreaker?
BEN: "I’d immediately throw a drink in her face. For completely wasting my time."
EVE: "I don’t actually think you could afford to go through life with that as a dealbreaker, because Friends is so synonymous with everyone’s tastes!"
RICH: "I wouldn’t be able to sit through a Friends boxset with that person, or contribute anything to conversations about Friends. I mean, it’s good to have different interests from your missus, but in this case… Man, I dunno."
BEN: "In fact, you know what, I’d throw a hot drink in her face. I’d call the waiter over and ask what the very hottest drink on the menu was. Wasting my time!"
