Was a recent 7de Laan storyline inspired by an old Friends episode?

2014-01-16 13:03
Johannesburg – Channel24 received an anonymous e-mail from a reader asking if an episode of 7de Laan that aired on Wednesday night was inspired by the hit American TV show, Friends.

“As a Friends fan, I was quite shocked when I saw the scene where Vanessa and Xander discussed the name of their new baby.

“Many aspects of this conversation seems to be taken straight out of the Friends episode 'The One Where Chandler Takes A Bath: S08E13'.
“In both, they suggest the names Sandrine and Rain and then another character suggests that they each get five nominations which the other can veto.
“I'm wondering if the writers are running out of ideas?,” the reader wrote.

Channel24 forwarded the e-mail to 7de Laan for response but by the time of publishing this article still had not received any feedback.
