MAKING FRIENDS WITH FRIENDS

Following last week’s look at the best and worst episodes of FRIENDS, Bob and Tim offer a real world take on who would be there best and worst friend. Who would they get coffee with? Who would they watch TV with? Who … actually that’s probably all they would really do.

096 FRIENDS: THE BEST & WORST ONES

It would be odd if this episode was rating and debating people you didn’t actually know (or, given the listenership, were). So, instead, Bob and Tim are taking a look at the highs and lows of Must-See TV’s Friends. Again.

087 FRIENDS: THE ONE WITH ALL THE THANKSGIVING ONES

It’s Thanksgiving, which means day-drinking to help talk politics with your in-laws around a table of stuffing, gravy and marsh-mellow ambrosia. Or join Bob and Tim as they indulge in six Must-Have-Seen episodes of FRIENDS.

064 SEINFELD

Its been said SEINFELD is a show about nothing. But after reviewing its first season, Bob and Tim are prepared to defend it as the preeminent document of life in the '90s.  So how to reconcile this thesis with the bizzarro tone of its final seasons?  Its an in depth examination culminating in one of the most divisive finales since I MARRIED DORA told us it was cancelled.

062 ROSEANNE, THE X-FILES AND WILL & GRACE

We've all mourned the loss of a favorite tv show, following characters to the finale of a "goodby," "farewell" or, if you're Sherman Hemsley, "Amen." So how do we handle it when a major network resurrects a father, re-knots severed ties or staves of a that predestined alien invasion? Its what Bob and Tim attempt to make sense of as they look at some recent revivals of 90s television.

059 ER SEASON 1

With all the Must-See TV that Bob and Tim must have seen, its a wonder they have yet to discuss the biggest prime-time blockbuster of the '90s, ER.   So today,  with Bob's professional opinion, they are downing a quadruple dose of Stringfield, Clooney, Edwards and La Salle.  But maybe "bypass" would have been the better reference there as Tim self-diagnoses his own hypochondria.

050 THE SUPER-DUPER 50TH ANNIVERSARY-A-RAMA-IN-OUR-PAJAMAS EPISODE

Do you know that Hot Wheels,  Ultron and Mr. Rogers Neighborhood are turning 50?   Bob and Tim do, so maybe they could have done an episode on one of those.  Instead, they are observing their own variation on this measurement with the 50th official episode of their year-old podcast.  Or 54th ... if you are actually counting.

043 CHRISTMAS EPISODES OF THE '80s & '90s

Its the most commercial time of the year, with many of them airing during Bob and Tim's favorite shows.  So in that money-sucking spirit they are tuning in to some (theoretically) festive episodes of some (questionably) classic sitcoms.  Seriously ... MORE Perfect Strangers?!?

030 ROSS AND RACHEL

Will they?  Won’t they?  When they?  Why they? Those were the questions that put Ross and Rachel at the center of the FRIENDS ensemble. But was that romance destined from the start?  And would that knowledge diminish the ten year narrative?  And did Ross have a pet monkey for a whole season?  Bob and Tim try to answer at least two thirds of these questions on today’s Must-See-But-Its-Heard episode.
