An incredible present for my birthday today is an upgrade for my home film watching, an Ultra HD Blu-ray player! Now to purchase some 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray films! It comes with The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and I already have the incredible new version of Die Hard that I can watch.
Not forgetting the cool Friends duvet cover I also got!
As much as I love Friends and have mentioned on many occasions and considering I have eight days to wait now until FriendsFest, I thought it was the perfect time to post about the Friends POP figures considering they have just released some really awesome geeky ones as long as you are a fan of the show! Above are the original six that have already been released. Unfortunately I don’t have them in my collection.
Let’s face it Friends is my all time favourite TV show, I have easily seen each episode about 500 hundred times. Ok maybe not that many, but I am sure it isn’t actually far off that total!
I have always been really jealous of #FriendsFest as it has never come up to Newcastle before, so when seeing the news yesterday that in July it will be here, I had to sign up for the pre-sale 24 hours before general sale. I have therefore bought two tickets and booked the set tour!
Something to totally look forward to in July! Not long after my birthday either so I am going to call this my celebration. Come on I started the year with a blog post about being happy because Friends was added to Netflix in the UK!
Friends originally aired from 1994-2004. I would guess I started watching it around 1998/1999 and caught up with the episodes whilst still on TV, watching the final seasons as they happened.
My love for the TV show has always been huge from collecting them on VHS yes really on VHS and constantly watching them over and over whilst having a poster on my wall! Since then I upgraded on DVD but I don’t think I actually had each season. Then going all out and buying the Blu-Ray box set with every single season and episode! Throughout all that still watching at any time on E4 then now Comedy Central. It is one of those shows that it really doesn’t matter how many times I watch each episode, I could probably quote each and every line from each episode as well!
From January 2018 the full series was added to Netflix UK following on from it being added to Netflix US last year. A very exciting start to 2018. I have naturally been watching episodes and episodes between films and other things and was outraged that millennials watching for the first time and complaining about all aspects of the show! Especially considering I have just checked that millennials range from 1982-2002 therefore I am classed as one of them being born in 1987. Let’s just say this must be the younger of the generation!
I promise that this is my very last post about my New York trip (honestly) it might just stem some film related posts though, but don’t worry I still have a few film/tv related photos to share. Some of them are from knowledge gained on the On Location Central Park and/or Bus Tour.
Following the walking tour in Central Park the next day it was time for the Bus TV and Movie tour. Which was leaving next to Ellen’s Stardust Diner which meant we just had to go back for breakfast! To start the tour we are shown a DVD which would go onto show us many different clips from films throughout so we can remember just what scenes were filmed at the location we were currently at, heading to or had been at!
