Great show!!
5 October 2002 | by flokkertSee all my reviews

"Vrienden voor het leven" (friends for life) is about the life of a young couple living together. The show is very funny. In particular I like Eddie's grandfather to whom Eddie always goes for advice on life. Eddie's parents are also hilarious; The mother, who is a controle freak, and the father, who always replies with "what is it, dear?" to anything his wife sais because he's never listening.

The show doesn't have a lot of depth, but the humour is good.
