I have taken to the refuge of my bedroom, my fort, my place of calm and rest and the reason is because my 22 year old daughter took advantage when I took my eye of the TV remote control. Its the same time e and time again, she gets the remote and within a few seconds the ear punishing sound of canned laughter and the voices of the friends cast is filling the room.
Now I hold my hand up and admit that I enjoyed watching friends and I even enjoyed watching the repeats but the repeats of the repeats of the repeats and so on is torture. What makes it worse is that I would happily place a bet that at any time there will be at least one channel beating the hell out of another friends episode.
Several years ago we bought my daughter the Friends boxset, the entire 10 seasons containing 236 episodes and so I had hoped that she would have fill of this tired show and she also has my Sky box from my bedroom on which she watches episode after episode but still she craves more. Forget the likes of cocaine, crack and heroin because this is my daughters addiction and I’m not sure if there is a way to wean her off of it
