NBC's Must See TV lives on in 'The Sims 4'


The dream of the nineties is alive in Simlish

There was a time when Thursday nights belonged to NBC. The so-called "Must See TV" primetime block began in the 1980s with The Cosby Show, Cheers, and LA Law before giving way to Friends, Seinfeld, and ER in the 1990s. NBC's ratings dominance declined soon after that in the early 2000s, and the network's hold on Thursdays has never quite returned.

But those glory days live on thanks to one ambitious and very detail-oriented Sims 4 player. Ian Roach (Origin ID ian8000) has been recreating Friends, Seinfeld, and other shows in-game and uploading his work for the world to see. So now Jerry, George, Elaine, Kramer, Ross, Rachel, Joey, Monica, Chandler, and Phoebe can live on until the end of time, in madcap situations and incomprehensible Simlish.

Roach has been working on other TV shows — most notably Arrested Development and Golden Girls — but for our sake, we're hoping for Frasier, Veronica's Closet, Caroline in the City, Suddenly Susan, and Just Shoot Me.
