Like many of you probably are, I’m a huge fan of the TV show, Friends. I actually didn’t watch it much when it was still airing, but I got into it my final year of college and then caught all the other episodes on re-run.
It’s been awhile since I’ve watched it, and I was reminded recently that Monica and Chandler faced infertility. What I didn’t realize the first time I saw this episode was how realistic it was. I found a clip online and was really moved by Courteney Cox’s and Matthew Perry’s acting. I think it’s one of the best portrayals of infertility in the media that I’ve seen. Some of the video’s comments say that Courteney Cox was actually struggling with infertility in real life at the same time. If that’s true, I admire her bravery in tackling what must have been a very raw subject.
Take a look at this clip and let me know what you think. Realistic or not?
