F.R.I.E.N.D.S: Central Perk!

Saturday, July 10th, 2010

So after a long day at lectures during the first semester, I decided to walk back home, as opposed to taking the bus or underground (subway to some of you).

Of course my route takes me down the elegant Regent St. with its many ‘side streets’ that contain wondrful cafés and shops. One of those streets is called “Carnaby Street“. Very simply, it is located right next to Hamley’s Toy Store, you can’t miss it. What caught my attention in this street was the café that resembled the Central Perk from the hit show F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Ok, Il’ll admit, I am not a fan of the show (go Frasier and Seinfeld!), but I had to go in and see what the hubub was all about.

Monday, November 16th, 2009


I took the TV show and Movies tour at New York to show us the places where they shot the scenes. The one that made my day was the friends building. I forgot the address to it I’ve should have memories it, if anybody knows please tell me. Thank you and enjoy the pic.

Update: you can find out the address of the building here or here

Of course the TV show is done in California but the outside scenes are shot in New York

Friends in Arabic Lebanese – Funny

[Watch on YouTube]

This version of the famous comedy series of Friends can be found on MTV Lebanon channel. Unfortunately, I could not get its airing time … when we first saw it; it was Friday about 11pm!

Beside the openness of language Ross, Monica and maybe Chandler sounded the same in Arabic. They guys who did the voices had the same tone of the original actors :)
