    9 5 10 4 8 6 2 3 7 1 This was really tough, because I love all the Seasons, but I guess, being as young as me, the more up-to-date humour in the later Seasons appeals to me more.

    And I totalled up the scores for the first and a half pages to get a rough idea of what people like. 1st got one point and 10th got 10 points, so the least points the better.

    1. Season 9 - 92

    2. Season 8 - 93

    3. Season5 - 123

    4. Season 10 - 125

    5. Season 3 - 127

    6. Season 6 - 131

    7. Season 7 - 135

    8. Season 2 - 144

    9. Season 4 - 145

    10. Season 1 - 205

    Well, I expected Season 5 to be top, I didnt expect Seasons 8 and 9 to be so close, I expected Season 4 to be higher, I expected Season 10 to be closer in score to 8 and9 than it is and although I was expecting Season 1 to be bottom, I thought it would only just be bottom.

    Mine have changed since I last posted. Now its

    1. Season 9

    2. Season 10

    3. Season 6

    4. Season 5

    5. Season 4

    6. Season 7

    7. Season 8

    8. Season 3

    9. Season 2

    10. Season 1

    My liking for Season 8 has declined. Rachel plays way too big a part. Phoebe only gets a few minor plots that go for more than one episode (her boyfriend Parker, Ursula's fiance, he pretending shes pregnant and her storyline in TOW Rachel has a Baby, if that counts). Seasons 6 and 7 have climbed up my table, simply because I'm finding them a lot funnier than I used to.

    I know, I just don't get that! Season 1 was one of their strongest! I love all the characters and how they interact. These are the Friends in their purest form. I can watch every episode over and over and over again and laugh as loud and enjoy it as much as the first time I ever saw it. It's all fresh and original, and it's not loaded yet with 6 Ross-Rachel break-ups. It's the season where Ross is preparing to be a father, how cool was that?

    How can anybody not like the Pilot (best lines in 'Friends' ever), 'TOW the thumb' (Chandler starts smoking, everybody is love with Monica's new boyfriend), 'TOW the East German laundry detergent' (Chandler breaking up with Janice for the first time, Rachel and Ross in the laundromat), 'TOW Nana dies twice' (everybody thinks Chandlers is gay 'TOW Underdog gets away' (everybody ending up having a lousy Thanksgiving), 'TOW the ick factor' (Chandler's colleagues imitating him)... Well, I could go on and on!

    My order would be very simple: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10

    5 - Had the funniest episodes! Loved Monica and Chandler's secret relationship!

    2 - Such an underrated season. There were some hysterical episodes this season. I loved all the episodes with psychotic Eddie!

    4 - Some of my favorite episodes were this season like TOW the embryos

    3 - Tied with season 4. LOVED when Ross and Rachel were together.

    6 - Great season. Definitely Ross'funniest season by far

    8 - Monica and Chandler had some great newly wed moments this season! I loved all the Rachel/Ross pregnancy drama as well.

    9 - Good season, but not the best.

    10 - Okay season, the storylines started getting less interesting to me

    7 - Overall, not a good season. Monica was almost unbearable.

    1 - My least favorite season by far. None of the characters were fully developed yet, so I wasn't able to appreciate them. The jokes weren't as funny either.

    I found Season 1 very, very boring. The only episodes I like are TOW The Blackout, TOW Two Parts, TOW The Birth, TOW The Poker and TOW Rachel Finds Out. There are some like TOW The Ick Factor, TOW The Fake Monica, TOW The Sonogram At The End and TOW The Evil Orthodontist which are abysmal.

    The worst episode in Season 9 (probably TO In Barbados, Part 2 or TOW The Donor) is better than the best in Season 1 in my opinion. Season 1 doesn't make me laugh. Seasons 5-10 can't stop me laughing.

    I don't get that. In season 9, the characters and storylines are already totally worn-out. I also don't get what's boring about how everything was still new and original in season 1. I mean, by season 9 Ross and Rachel had already broke up and got together for like 6 times. What's the fun in that? And don't tell me the 'original' Chandler was less funny than married Chandler. What I liked about the Barbados-episodes was mainly Aisha Tyler (she should've ended up with Ross). I also liked the returning Hank Azaria as David, and I think Paul Rudd is hysterical!

    I agree with MM, the first season was such a breath of fresh air, and so fun and original. Sure, the newer episodes are funny, but the don't have the absolute classic lines, that were so oddlike

    RACHEL: It's like all my life, everyone has always told me 'You're a shoe! You're a shoe, you're a shoe, you're a shoe!' And today I just stopped and thought 'What if I don't want to be a shoe?' What if I want to be a purse? Or a hat? No, I don't want you to buy me a hat, I'm saying that I am a ha-. It's a metaphor daddy!

    Orcompletely original and witty Chandler:

    RACHEL: Guess what?
    CHANDLER: The fifth dentist caved and now they'reall reccomending Trident?

    JILL GOODACRE: Would you like to call someone?
    CHANDLER: Yeah, about 300 guys I went to high school with.

    And whenever I watch an episode, I always find myself reaching for the older episodes, mainly Seasons 3 and 1, while the Season 10 box set has been left untouched for over a year now.

    Now Season 10 also had a good deal of funny episodes and good jokes. In fact, I think I never laughed harder than the first time I watched 'TOW the late Thanksgiving'. But I missed the chemistry between the characters, the bonding, the friendship. The cast wanted to get it over with, and you could tell. It showed in the characters. Most characters also were reduced to a few character traits (Joey is stupid, Monica is bossy etc.).
