Friends - In Every New Episode!
In all of the new episodes, the ones where Monica's character is identified as Courtney Cox Araquette, instead of just Courtney Cox, the very first shot during the theme song shows a view of the city. If you look at the upper-right hand part of the screen, you can obviously see that it is just a picture being held up on a black backround. Thats a big mistake considering that shot is in every show!

Umm, that isn't a picture held up in front of a black background. The black thing you see in the top right corner of the screen is the Brooklyn bridge(which I think it's called) that leads to New York city.

I can see where some people would be confused with this. My father, who works at Warner Brothers, where they film 'Friends' took me on a tour of the back lots and I've seen the fountain that they use. It's a fake fountain and the apartments behind it are fake too. It's just a fake park that they move around so they can use it in other t.v shows and movies.

Its not like it really matters though, because the whole thing was a picture/screen back drop anyways. The intro thing to Friends was shot in the studio back lot. I couldn't tell you how many people i know think it was shot at the fountain in Central Park... [the fountain in the park is about 3 times as big!]

Did anyone see the episode of Saturday Night Live when Matthew Perry was on, and they did a skit for his opening monologue about how no real New Yorkers would REALLY dance in a fountain like that? And so Matthew went out in New York City and got "real" people and asked them if they would dance in the fountain with him. Only, if you've ever seen the Upright Citizen's Brigade, you'd recognize two of the characters. But anyway my point is that they mentioned on that episode on SNL that they had filmed it in LA. So it's definitely a backdrop.
