Kate’s leather dress from Friends with Better Lives
At first I thought it was just me.
The overwhelming disappointment that Friends with Better Lives is more like Friends with worse writers. The heavy handed, overtly sexual jokes (really, an ejaculating hamburger?) left me feeling like I needed a shower and to binge watch Jessie.
What I hoped for as a palette cleanser after the finale of How I Met Your Mother, felt more like a greasy, overcooked dinner that wasn’t at all satisfying.
With the creator of Friends at its helm and the team from How I Met Your Mother, I guess I’d just hoped someone would come running in wearing a soaking wet wedding dress.
But these characters are so unlikeable, who’d marry them?
The one thing I can say, is that these Friends have better wardrobes than their 90′s counterparts. But if it’s all the same, I’d take Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Chandler, Joey and Ross’s lives over the new #FWBL any day.
What did you think of Friends with Better Lives? Are you going to keep watching, or unfriend them?
