With "Friends" like those...

Posted on: Monday, September 13, 2010

I just had the misfortune (or masochism) to watch a few old episodes of "Friends." Now, it's not one of my favorite sitcoms by a long shot - the top spot goes hands-down to "Everybody Loves Raymond" - but it's suitable for some light entertainment. Nevertheless, Rachel Green's character managed to annoy me to the point of actually swearing at the T.V. set! She embodies everything I despise about the archetypal Western woman, being a disloyal, cuckolding, manipulative, self-absorbed, hypocritical, ignorant, shallow bitch. Her uxorious "partner" Ross is, if that's possible, even more infuriating because he actually keeps coming back for more crap that Green dishes out to him by the shovel at every given opportunity. But the MOST execrable aspect of it all is the scriptwriters' portrayal of their, ahem, "relationship" as the epitome of romance and as something to aspire toward, which the dumb audience just laps up.
