Day 17 – Watching Sitcoms

100 Happy Days – Day 17

Happiness is watching sitcoms.

And when they happen to be F.R.I.E.N.D.S, there is no stopping me! It so happens that always, I decide to watch just one episode and end up watching them for hours together. The series that revolves around 6 friends, was aired for around 10 years from 1994 to 2004. I began watching sitcoms barely 2 years ago. I haven’t watched many, but as I watch Friends, I see why people say that the series has been THE best.


I began watching sitcoms with How I Met Your Mother. I was blown away right from the first episode. Needless to say, I felt very sad that it ended. Since many were saying that Friends was much better than HIMYM, I decided to give it a try. However, after a few episodes, I couldn’t watch it anymore. Somehow, HIMYM had set a standard. Besides, Friends’ beginning isn’t as peppy as HIMYM’s. So, I kept it aside and watched other Sitcoms until that unfortunate (read now fortunate) day came by. I had nothing else to watch! That was when I started off with Friends again. BAM! And I fell in love with them.


Even though it has been 10 years since the series ended, I can relate to all that happens in it even now. Which means, they have kept it so real so as to be relatable to us even today. Most of the times, I fall laughing listening to the things they say. Though I haven’t finished many seasons, I already worry what I’d do when it gets over. I worry that I wouldn’t enjoy anything as much as this.

Whatever the worries, once I click on the play button, I get the laughing therapy. Many of my friends haven’t watched the series yet. Many of you might have not. I know that most of us can’t simply begin a habit just because someone is telling us to. But I would still say. If you haven’t watched it, do give it a try. I assure you, you won’t be disappointed. It is a laughing therapy everyone needs.
