Watching a recent re-run of the recent re-runs of the recent re-runs of Friends on Comedy Central, my daughter asked me a tricky question.
It went like this: ‘No-one in this show wears bras – were they not invented then?’
And she, like most of the female characters depicted, has a point.
Friends isn’t that old, really, but old enough to show women without bras on a regular basis.
What TV show does that now, bar some on those explicit channels far down the listings?
I’ve got a theory.
Perhaps it was a deliberate ploy, a way to appeal to certain viewers and to pull them into watching the series until they got hooked by the comedy.
Am I right?
