The Chinese are pretty (in)famous for their ability to take existing technology..and blatantly copy it to distribute for profit. 爱情公寓 is not (really) one of these imitations. Whereas it takes some premise and inspiration from "Friends", it has its own dash of originality. The writers of the show are awesome and the acting is top notch. PP first introduced me to this sitcom and we blazed through the first season of 20 episodes in less than a week. The combination of your standard couch gags mixed with subtle, intellectual humor, with a dash of rather witty satire makes this series a hilariously entertaining show. I highly recommend it to anyone..who understands Mandarin (hopefully they have a subtitled version soon).
