Friends Eulogies Better Than Mine

Immediately after spending far too many words trying to bury Friends in the cold, cold ground and not doing a very good job at it, I've come across several articles that have managed to place the Friends oeuvre in its right and proper context. And I'm not just talking about Jason's, which you'll find by glancing immediately below this article or, if you've stumbled upon this entry in ArchiveLand, by clicking here.

Both Slate's Chris Suellentrop and the San Francisco Chronicle's Tim Goodman offer up excellent, original takes on the show's 10-year run, pointing out both its merits and its flaws without indulging in sweeping generalizations about the program's larger meaning. There's also a nice personal take from some writer we should really get to write for this site one of these days.
