My life right now is so much like Friends it's ridiculous! I live with my awesome roomie (another girl) and literally right across the hall from us are two of our really good guy friends. Now here's where it starts to sound like Friends: those guy friends just walk into our apartment whenever the heck they want! We're so used to it now that it doesn't even phase us. If we have the door locked, they get upset and always say, "Why on earth was your door locked?! I didn't understand why I couldn't get in!" Of course, the first thing they go for is our refridgerator!

Apparently I'm "just" like Monica. I'm competitive and the guys across the hall sometimes call me mom because I'm always looking out for everyone and making sure no one is doing anything TOO stupid. My roomie is very much like Rachel. She's been used to having daddy's money and since she moved in with me she's been dealing with not having that money so readily available. Neither one of the neighbors is funny enough to be Chandler (unfortunately) but one of them is definitely a Joey: always eating and ALWAYS hitting on me and my roomie.

There is also a coffee shop that we hang out at at times, but not as religiously as they did at Central Perk. Still, the similarities make me giggle sometimes.

However I wish it was like The OC!!!
Go on, spill the beans, Lauren!!

I'd say my life is like Shameless!

No! Really, I can't think of anything right now! Not Shameless, honestly!

Deadwood

Not the shooting, not the prostitutes, but the dirty bearded men looking for gold in big hats, hanging out in unpainted rooms. I spend my years from 0 to 4 in Lapland during a gold rush and, 20th century technology left out, it was pretty similar.

I just had to bring this old thread up again! LOL!!!!!

I've been watching "Keeping Up Appearances" lately and I think it's so funny! It doesn't remind me of my immediate family, but it really reminds me of my late grandparents. They were so much like Hyacinth and Richard!

Grandma was very class conscious, wore hats, always wore dresses, told grandpa how to drive, and told everyone else what they would be doing.

Grandpa drove grandma everywhere she wanted to go and never argued with anything she said...ever... just like Richard!

This is kinda bad I guess, does anyone watch Lucky Louie on HBO? They remind me of my husband & I sometimes....I love the wife, she's the best....the last episode, she's yelling at Louie cause he was supposed to be home hours ago, he's sitting on the park bench with his 2 idiot friends, and their little girl is playing....the wife had worked all day as a nurse, and had to track him down at the playground, she says "louie, she was supposed to have her bath & be in bed an hour ago!" And being cool he says "hey, I'm spending quality time with my daughter (who's nowhere in sight)" she tells him that Lucy will be off schedule and up all night now, he says "don't talk to me like this in front of my friends" and she's like "you think I'm afraid of your friends" then proceeds to berate them till they wise up and leave. It's really pretty funny....

I'd have to say The Osbournes for our family. I was always jealous of those "Brady Bunch" families. Of course, I never could believe there could possibly be a REAL family like the Brady Bunch.

Growing up, I'd have to say it was the Canadian show "Corner Gas," although I grew up in a small town in northern Ontario, not a small town in Saskatchewan -- the people are all the same, though, and so are the things that happen.

Now? I guess it's more like the Canadian show "Billable Hours," or maybe like "The Office."

Someone else already said this, but my job is a lot like The Office too! That's not a good thing, lol.

ETA: Nope I'm the 3rd person to say The Office!

I have to say All in the Family, My dad reminds me of Archie Bunker all the time

I'll see if anyone remembers this one, Freaks and Geeks. I was the only girl in my high school class that played Dungeons and Dragons. Also, My So Called Life hit home for me too. Angela Chase and I could have been the same person. As for my family, the Vacation movies are what we were all about. The stories I could tell you about my father piling all five of us in a car and driving cross country would make you laugh so hard you'd cry.

No doubt about it....Arrested Development.

i LOVE Lucky Louie! I loved the ep where Lucy was being bad for no reason...I know its a comedy but I also like that theres no "big heartwarming ending where everythings ok again" like most sitcoms... Yet it was still sweet when he went in the closet with her. and yeah, the wife is the best

ps - the ep you mentioned, at the playground.. i love when his friend tells her (the wife) to do a certain thing, and she says ok, go ahead and ect.. and I'll do it. and he just stands there dumbfounded. priceless

That would have been my choice. Are you certain we aren't related?

Growing up my family would have to be a cross between Roseanne and All in the family.

My mom is a less extreme version of Roseanne and my dad is a cross of Dan and Archy. We definately struggled with money and all of it.

My family is dysfuntional, so sort of Arrested Development
My personal life is more like Melrose Place
My sister acts like Hillary Duff from Confession of a Drama Queen
My work, more of Boston Legal.
And my friends, more like Grey's Anatomy, you know the kind that s/he-who-got-scr*wed-to-get-over-being-scr*wed
