So, I'm watching TV tonight and basically killing time before Survivor, and I watch Friends. I haven't watched in a while, and lo and behold, Phoebe got married.

To review, here's the weddings on Friends thus far:
-Rachel & Barry [Aborted; Episode 1 (Season 1)] During the first episode, Rachel left her fiance at the altar and ended up in the coffee shop and the show basically began there.
-Carol & Susan [Episode 35 (Season 2)] The lesbian wedding.
-Mindy & Barry [Episode 48 (Season 2)] Rachel's former fiance AND maid of honor got hitched.
-Ross & Emily [Episodes 96, 97 & 98 (Seasons 4 & 5)] Ross' second wedding (first on the show) and he says the wrong name.
-Ross & Rachel [Episodes 121 & 122 (Seasons 5 & 6)] Drunken Vegas wedding.
-Chandler & Monica [Episodes 169 & 170 (Season 7)]
-Phoebe & Mike [Episode 230 (Season 10)]

So...that's 7 weddings (6 of them seen) over 10 years. Dear God, can't the writers come up with anything better??

Seeing as how you're talking about "Friends" I'd say the answer is a definite "no, they can't."

A group of twentysomethings getting married over the course of ten years? That NEVER happens!

When the show started, I figured that if Friends had any sort of respectable run, there would be at least three weddings (presuming they all paired up with each other).

And really, only a couple of the weddings were really built-up over the long term. Monica/Chandler and Ross/Emily were the only ones that acted as the seasonal climaxes, whereas the rest were dealt with in pretty much one episode.

I was amazed how the flaming pile of garbage they call "Friends" has managed to stay on this long...

Yeah. This is its last season though. I've hardly watched the show since the Monica/Chandler wedding a few seasons ago. It pretty much went downhill from there.

I felt like some of the storylines fell flat while others were good. The Ross/Rachel/baby storyline was GREAT until the baby was actually born, but the "Chandler in Tulsa" story was lackluster, except for the Shark Porn episode.

Mrs. JJD and I are big Friends fans but we haven't watched this last season, because we were taping it, then our VCR died, then we decided we'd be happy just to get the DVD.

Friends is actually one of my favourite shows, and it's kind of weird to think about it ending...I've been a regular viewer with the eighth grade. Man, I feel old. They pretty much feel like real people at this point, rather than characters.

It basically started at around a B+ to a B level of humour, and stayed that way for ten years. The writers weren't aspiring to a Seinfeld/Simpsons level of originality or greatness, but only aimed to be 'good' as defined by Howard Hawks' definition of what makes a good movie: "three great scenes and no bad scenes." They've had relatively few outright "bad" episodes in ten years (though some are obviously better than others), and plenty of great episodes.
