Now since I am writing a blog about this you will definitely know that I simply love watching Sitcoms in my spare time. Well, I say spare time now cause of all the work thing going on. Anyway I have realised that girls who watch sitcoms are much more interesting and far better life partners. Don’t you think so? In case you disagree, I will give you few of the many reasons to justify this.
Sitcoms addicts are a different breed altogether. We ain’t word leaders or great thinkers. But damn it, we can get through seasons at record speed. We definitely aren’t for the faint hearted. But if you do stick around; boy, are you in for a ride.
We might probably leap out of bed on the day of a season premier with a level of excitement that would suggest that the cast is about to materialize out of the TV set and into the living room to give a live performance. Ditto for every season finale, every normal episode in between and most probably, even the reruns.(I wish I had that time) But the patience with which we wait through every cushy season break and the even more spaced out mid-season breaks that the writers throw you way, ought to let you know that we aren’t afraid to wait – No matter how long it takes, we will be waiting for you with a smile. Just like with we wait for our favourite shows, we know that all good things are worth the wait/
We are going to talk in a language consisting solely of references to the gags of our favourite shows. And pointing out the side-effects of yelling ‘Legend-wait for it-DARY’ in a public place is probably going to be a embarrassing for you. But the commitment with which we stick by the shows, no matter how twisted the story gets; that indefatigable spirit which lets us find something worth salvaging Once together, we ain’t going to give up on you. Because real life isn’t always perfect, much as we’d like it to be.
You need to understand why we spend so much time and energy analysing the lives of people we’ve never met, why we take every series finale as a personal loss and when you understand that shows hold so much importance it is not so much for the gags but because all the Central Perk & MacLarens outings remind us to cherish our own friends. Because I’ll Be There For You is not just some catchy song that makes for a cool ringtone; a girl who loves sitcoms will always stand by her friends. No questions asked.
The outtake of every episode is being filed away in our brain, so that the day the One comes along, we can make ours an epic love story. Because the day you understand that is the day that the shows will take a backseat and we won’t have to ‘wait-for-it’ anymore; for we would have found ourself a new sitcom based on her life, one that will come before everything else.*
