"Mondler" - The Best Couple On TV

For F.R.I.E.N.D.S fans, deciding upon who the best couple on the show still remains a bone of contention. For some its Ross and Rachel and for others its Monica and Chandler. I belong to the “others” part of the above statement.

Yes, Ross and Rachel were perfect and Mon and Chan were not! And that s what exactly makes their chemistry strong. The first time I thought they could make an awesome couple was when I watched the episode in season 1 where Carol’s having Ross’s baby. There is a scene where Mon is emotional about being single. That is when Chandler proposes of marrying her if neither of them is married by the time they are 40! I thought that was very sweet of him.

The 4th season again has a scene where Mon is again emotional for being single (having been broken off with her billionaire boyfriend Pete). That’s when Chan says something like “worse comes to worse, I ll be your boyfriend”.. (I went “awwwwww…”)! I mean Mon laughs hysterically when he says that but the woman marries him in the 8th season..  

So my point is, they never thought they were perfect for each other but that is the beauty of it – Love. I loved the episode in 5th season where Phoebe and Rachel play with Monica and Chandler because they know about their secret affair. It was really heartwarming to see Chandler realize that he is in love with Mon.

Chandler could be the most unsuitable man for Mon because they are so different. While she is the mother hen of the group, Chan is always using sarcasm on them. While she is so neat and sophisticated, he is one of those cheesy and ignorant types. Opposites do attract, don’t they? ;)

My favorite season of all is the 6th season. Especially the last episode. It is the best proposal scene in the history of TV. It is a general perception that a girl proposing to a boy is pathetic but this one scene wronged the whole notion. It was very sweet to see Mon kneeling down forChandler. I loved Chandler’s words when he says he wants to make Monica feel happier like she did to him. I cry every time I watch the scene (Yeah, I know.. Women and Proposals!).

You can see Chandler’s love for Monica growing every season. I mean the 9th season episode wherein he is trying to tell Erica how much in dire need they are of her services, is a proof for it. I so wished there was no surrogacy involved and they could have a biological child of their own. But hey, a show is a show :D. It is supposed to have such moments !

Anyways, the bottom line is, you never know how Love hits you. But if its in the form of your best friend you are LUCKY. I mean, only the fortunate can have such a love written in their destiny.  So I dedicate this post to  F.R.I.E.N.D.S, to MONDER and the love they shared..

Steven Eckholdt – The most Hate-able Person on TV

Ok so it’s not about his personality to start with, but the characters he has played over the years, that have made him the most hateable TV person on my list. I know he is handsome and totally metrosexual – looking, but hey, nobody coerced him into playing the two worst characters on Television. So here goes, the “ that third guy who broke the cute couple up” roles he played:
Mark Robinson – FRIENDS:

Who doesn’t remember his character Mark Robinson from FRIENDS? We all hated him, when he got Rachel an interview at Bloomingdale’s, we hated him when Rachel hugged him leaving Ross cold after her interview, we hated him when he got her Chinese food right after Ross & Rachel’s situation which later got very famous as the “we were on a break” scene, we hated him when he told Rachel he had a huge crush on her but didn’t act upon it because she was with Ross then, we hated him and this was the last nail in the coffin– when he took Rachel out and hurt Ross (Unintentional? I don’t think so!)…

The Most Important Groupies of All Times

The Rock n Roll storm of the 60s was a much needed revolution in the music history which gave us many great bands and musicians the world segments as “legends” today. While we are all well aware of how much this time period was unequivocally the best time to “be discovered” in the music industry, I wonder how many of us truly notice what kind of opulence being discovered led to.Money – check, villa – check, vanity, private jets – check, fame – check, women – check oh check!

Women – as musicians were a small group compared to the behemoth group of male musicians in the 60s and the 70s. Pattie Smith, Stevie Nicks and a handful more made their mark in the male dominated music industry. Also behind the veil were the groupie clan that slowly and steadily made their ways into the rainbow lives of artists – satisfying the egos and “other things” these men were “in need” of. Being a groupie was more than legitimate if these girls (also men, yes there were male groupies also ) were of the right…

Badassery, thy name is Ma Anand Sheela! (A No spoilers post)

When Netflix’s recommendation displayed the docu-series “Wild,Wild Country”, I was uninterested. One of my friends had enlightened me about Osho Rajneesh’s teachings when we were still teenagers. The bits and pieces of the cult, she had gathered from one of the neighbour uncles, who at the time I think had no filter as to what to be shared with teenagers and what not, didn’t sound sound to me. According to her information, Osho was a spiritual guru who encouraged people to find happiness via physical means! At the time, I wasn’t sure she even knew what she was talking about! But anyways, that was the picture I had in mind of Osho. As a grown up, I am no longer a prude but the image of Osho hadn’t changed until recently.

I started watching the series because it had tons of hippie culture shades. I have been fascinated with hippies and their liberated way of living ever since I watched Woodstock documentary. So, the summary as was on Netflix, got me a bit curious and so I started. And …
