season 10

i recently had the chance to finish friends season 10 on dibidi...from quiapo, where else! i must admit i felt sad that it had to end but i really can't blame the actors since they've been playing the same role for more than 10 years, i think. they probably needed a fresh breath of air.

but even if they've been running that long, it was only in the last 2 years, just when the whole thing was ending, that i got hooked to watching the show. i wasn't able to get the chance to watch the sitcom on tv though, coz i didn't have one in my dorm. but one of my roomies, K, brought her vcd collection to the dorm. there was a catch though, we would only watch them during study breaks using the pc. we were allowed to watch only an episode a day but with our low EQs, those study breaks would stretch to 2 hours...meaning we would finish 4 episodes each time. haay...those were the days.

anyway, back to friends, i can now understand why they had been winning awards for the longest time. it was a really funny show and i don't think there was one episode that i didn't laugh out loud, alone or with company, with their crazy and often times, stupid antics. there was this one time i decided on watching just 1 episode before going to bed since i was a little sleepy. i even set the tv on sleep just in case i'd fall asleep before the episode ended. well, sleep was farthest from my mind after i finished all the 4 episodes in the cd!

but all good things has to come to an end. the characters and the actors themselves had to move on with their lives, just like everybody else. and watching their last episode, it made me remember that in moving on or saying goodbye, we could always bring with us all the memories of things that were, both good and bad. but no matter how we try to go back to that time or to that era or to that feeling, it would never be the same. because no matter how we deny it, we all change. and as the saying goes, the only thing that's constant in this world, is change.

may logic ba?

some people are afraid of change, and goodbyes kasi mahirap. ganun tlga eh, gaya nga nang kantang Minsan by Eheads.

There must be something wrong with me. I've never seen even a single episode of Friends even if my friends and students raved about it.
Reading this and how it made you laugh out loud, sige na nga makapanood nga kahit isang episode. :)
