"Friends" is simply amazing and by far the funniest sitcom I ever seen. I think
well, but not as much as Clarissa, IMHO.
+"Student Bodies" - quite similar in spirit to Clarissa. A high school
+in America in a relatively uninteresting town, and a really whacky newspaper
+crew writing an underground school paper. The cartoons in the middle are
+an especially nice edge.
+<h5>No. 1: "Hatzi Hamenasheh" (the half of the Menasheh tribe)</h5>
+A show about biblical times without too much realism to it and lots of insights
+from the future. This thing is so funny from an Israeli POV, but I don't know
+how much foreign people will understand it. I think it's even funnier than
+Friends, because it applies to me as an Israeli.
+"Qrovim Qrovim" - (close relatives) - a story about a few interlaced families
+living next door to each other. A bit old, but still as funny as ever. This
+is a more traditional sitcom, but very nice.
+"The Big Restaurant" - a middle-eastern Israeli restaurant with some
+completely insane workers, who are desperately trying to hide their insanity
+from its patrons. (sometimes without too much success) Despite being mostly
+in Arabic (but also in Hebrew, English and French), this show was something
+that got my family and I hooked every Saturday's Evening.
+Little Women / Louisa May Alcott
+A very entertaining book albeit a little preachy. I was amazed at how
+modern the English felt like. One of the books I have most enjoyed reading.
+The Fountainhead / Ayn Rand
+I became an Objectivist a long time before reading this book, and decided to
+read it to see what all the hype was about. I was not disappointed. It is one
+of the most powerful books I have read.
