LEGO: Friends – Central Perk

Friends Lego!

When it was announced by LEGO that a special Friends set would be available it has been something that I have been looking at getting, being the big Friends geek that I am. This eventually happened mainly due to lockdown in all honesty, because that pushed the decision to eventually buy it! Especially when Amazon had it £8 cheaper than the £64.99 retail price and it was unavailable direct from LEGO until the end of June, although now it is just out of stock and hard to find. So it seems I made the correct decision to purchase it.

Happy New Year 2020!

We are starting a new decade and in true geek fashion here is a TV moment from Friends where reality has eventually caught up . . .

I wish the very best to everyone who follows and supports Let’s Go To The Movies for the new year ahead. I hope 2020 is a good one and that we get plenty of amazing films to watch throughout!

I couldn’t have been anymore excited about eventually heading to #FriendsFest after having the tickets booked as soon as they went on sale. This was the first time the Comedy Central UK tour of everyone’s favourites friends was coming to Newcastle and I certainly could not miss out! I thought it was essential to put together this blog post to celebrate Friends, show off the incredible photos we had taken and a truly fantastic day spent with one of my childhood friends and naturally a fellow Friends fan and geek!

Why I still love Friends as much as ever!

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!
