Netflix is known for destroying your life by putting up entire seasons of your favorite shows. I know that I’m not the only one that has lied in bed and watched hours upon hours of a show not thinking about how I’m wasting my day. Netflix has really done it this time by starting 2015 with the addition of all 10 seasons of Friends.Friends is a very popular television show that aired originally on NBC from September 1994 to May 2004. It lasted 10 seasons with a whopping 236 episodes. It revolves around a group of close friends living in Manhattan, friends that are figuring out their lives.
I used to watch a couple of episodes here and there when I was younger but I never fully delved into the show like I am now. After just a few short weeks, I’m already almost on season 4 and I’m loving it.
Friends is one of the most popular sitcoms of all time and it shows. It’s one of the funnies shows that I have ever seen. When you have these six very different characters hanging out 24/7 with each other, trouble is sure to come. This is where the show shines, not the situations that they all get themselves in but the interaction between them all. You have Monica who is a clean-freak. Everything has to be perfect or she gets crazy. I feel bad for anyone who happens to get a stain on her couch or living room floor. Then you have the suave actor Joey, an Italian goofball who just cares about hooking up with girls and his acting career. There are times when he shows his compassionate side towards his friends which are always nice moments.
The show meshes everything so well together, you can sit down and watch episode after episode not realizing how much time you have spent. You start to understand each character in such a way that no other sitcom is able to do. Friends is a phenomenon, and I’m so happy to have the chance to relive the series at my will.
The cast even said themselves that they became family during the run of the show and that when it ended it was just so surreal and emotional. They all stayed close even after the filming was finished which is an incredible feat.
I don’t think there is another show like Friends. A show with an amazing ensemble cast where not one character manages to outshine another. Monica, Phoebe, Rachel, Ross, Joey and Chandler will always be in my heart and will never be forgotten.
