Box Sets & DVDs

I usually watch tv shows one time and that is enough for me (more than enough at times) but ocassionally there will a show that I love so much I want to watch it again. And again. And again.


First up is

Friends
I started watching Friends when it first aired on Channel 4 (I remember hating Caroline in the City  when it replaced it at the end of the series). I loved Friends even if I didn't always relate to them with me being just a kid.

I still love it now and can watch them a million times and still find them funny. I even watched an episode in Spain (on a Spanish channel) and was laughing at the funny bits as I was saying the english words in my head.

The scary thing is, I am older than the friends were at the beginning.

Friends facts:

Joey's address is 90 Bedford St. Apt. 19, New York, NY 10014.

Monica's address is 90 Bedford St. Apt. 20, New York, NY 10014.
Phoebe's address is 5 Morton St. Apt. 14, New York, NY 10014

 
Queer as Folk



 



I was fifteen when Queer as Folk  came out and I loved the series (and not just because I fancied Nathan, which I did. A lot). I was gutted when the second series came out and it was only two episodes (wah).

Queer as Folk is set in Manchester, which is where I'm from so that was also a plus point.

When the character of Frank appeared in Coronation Street I was not impressed. He is a bad man who let Phil die on his kitchen floor and then nicked his wallet. I know, I need to get out more.

Queer as Folk facts:

The role of Alexander was written for Phil Collinson but Anthony Cotton got the part. Phil Collinson became producer.

Cutting It


 


Also set in Manchester, Cutting It told the story of a bunch of hairdressers (or stylists. Whatever) and is full of backstabbing and secrets. Cutting It spanned four series, although they probably should have left it at two. I still enjoy the other two series but they had milked it a bit too much.

Cougar Town


 


A new one in comparison to my other box sets. Cougar Town  doesn't take itself seriously and can be silly at times, which I love. Who doesn't want to see adults playing hide and seek?

I love all the cul-de-sac gang but I think Bobby is my favourite.

Cougar Town facts:

In May 2010, the series' creator Bill Lawrence announced that he was considering change the series' title. Among the titles considered were "Friends & Family", "Friends & Neighbors", "Neighborhood Jules", "The Cul de Sac", "The End of the Street", "The Neighborhood" and "Neighborhooding". Lawrence eventually decided to keep the original title.
