I've been a regular watcher for a long time too. I'd have given up about 2 or 3 years ago, but the 'end' was always in sight, so I figured I'd just stick it out. It definitely had its moments but the last 2 seasons have been painful.
I'm not really big on watching it in syndication though. Unlike Seinfeld, which I still enjoy in reruns (mostly because it's fun trying to remember how the main characters plotlines all interweave).
I'm sad to see it go, if only that I lived most of my 20's in the last ten years and it really is the end of an era for 90's television. It's probably the last regular format sitcom I will ever watch (now it's Arrested Development, Scrubs, and such...).
But can they PLEASE shoot Ross? Pleeeaaasssee?
I second that motion. Monica must go.
Last night's Dateline was almost too much sugar on the open cavity. This came out, or became really popular right as I graduated HS (I know don't shoot me). And as I was finding my way I looked to it like I would a friendship. It definitely molded some of my alduthood.
I will cry, but not like Buffy. That's the difference.
I'll miss Phoebe.

Okay, I'll give you Monica ... as long as they go out in a brother-sister bloody death scene. Rachel goes to Paris, Ross runs after her on the tarmac and gets sucked into the jet engine, Monica right behind holding on and *splat*, they're both gone forever. Chandler becomes the homosexual he was always meant to be. Pheobe adopts Emma and Joey moves to LA where his new show lasts 3 episodes.
And Paul Rudd becomes my third.
