My Favourite TV Show Ever………F.R.I.E.N.D.S
If you’re like me born in the early 90s or even later you would have grew up watching FRIENDS, which for me is hands down the best show ever.
Now if for some reason you were living under a rock from 1994 to 2004 I am going to give you the back story and the reasons why I love FRIENDS & why if you haven’t seen it you MUST.
FRIENDS is based on six characters Ross, Chandler, Joey, Monica, Rachel & Phoebe all in their mid 20s who live in Manhattan & the show revolves around their lives going through break-ups/make-ups, family drama, horrible dates, heartbreak and all the rest that comes with being in your 20s.
After Rachel Green (played by Jennifer Aniston) runs out on her wedding day and seeks out her childhood friend Monica Geller (played by Courtney Cox) they soon become roommates and with that Rachel joins Monica’s social circle, which includes;
Phoebe Buffay (played by Lisa Kudrow) – who is a masseuse and musician she is that one in the group and all friendship circles have a Phoebe who is a little weird and out there but your friendship circle wouldn’t be complete without her.
Ross Geller (played by David Schwimmer) is Monica’s older brother who works as a paleontologist and had also had a crush on Rachel throughout High School.
Chandler Bing (played by Matthew Perry) Chandler has a sarcastic sense of humor and has a peculiar family history with his mother being a erotic novelist & his father is a gay cross- dressing Las Vegas star.
Joey Tribbiani (played by Matt LeBlanc) is a struggling actor, who loves women but loves food more especially pizza. His famous pick up line “How you doin?” has him never shy of female attention.
The characters each have their own different and unique personalities which are all separately hysterical & endearing and you immediately fall in love with each of them but as a whole they all complement each other which I think is what really made the show what it is. I always felt probably more so now being older and having re-watched every episode 100 million times (except for the final episode because who wants to re-live the pain of your favourite show ending more than once) that I was going on their journey with them and if something sad or wonderful happened I would be right their having that same emotion that was being shown on the screen through the characters.
FRIENDS was on air for 10 years and to this day is one of the greatest TV shows of all time. I think because it was always so relatable, every friendship group has their Monica, Rachel or Joey and growing up I always looked forward to having my set of FRIENDS to hang out and go through the rollercoaster of life with. No matter what they were going through in the episodes whether it was a new baby, cheating, a divorce, a marriage, break ups/make ups we have all been there and experienced some or all of these things.
For me personally one of my favourite story lines is Ross & Rachel, their love story started from season 1 all the way to the very last episode of season 10. They were on again and off again throughout the whole 10 years of the show and were a couple in the show that despite when they were with other people you always wanted them to get back together cause he’s her lobster.
I think why I love FRIENDS so much and why it’s my go to TV show to put on if I am just hanging out at home etc is because it is so funny and whether I have seen a particular episode 100 times it will still make me laugh my eyes out and I will be happy watching it. No matter if I am having the worse day If i put an episode of Friends on I will instantly feel better.
For me FRIENDS is a 10/10 show and one that everyone should watch but know watching one episode will make you become obsessed with it.
