friends is about six characters- rachel green, ross Geller, Chandler Bing, Monica Geller, Phoebe Buffay and Joey tribbiani. rachel is a fashion designer she lives with ross she has a daughter named emma and she works at ralph lauran but got offered a job in paris. Ross is the father of emma he has a sister called monica he lives with rachel he has been divorced 3 times by rachel a drunken moment, carol who was a lesbian and emily because ross said rachels name at the alter. monica is rosses sister she lives with chandler who is her husband they had sex at rosses second wedding with emily.

Joey is mad about food, beer and the ladys he has never been in a meanful relationship with anyone his catch phrase is how u doin! He lives across the hall from monica and chandler.
Friends is a timeless classic. You cant find shows like this anymore! I love every episode from The One With Monicas New Roommate(aka Pilot) to The one Where Pheobe Runs to The Last one. Every episode brought you closer and more in love with each of the charecters. Weither they're getting free porn , married for the third time, weither they're hating pbs, or changing they're name Banana Hamic, or even one they're one a break they had America's attention for 10 years. But if your ever feeling sad you can count on your friends to be sitting at the coffee house waiting to cheer you up!
Friends has changed the world of American comedy and is the show all comedy shows nowadays are compared to. And probably because of this perfection many shows like How I Met Your Mother and of course Scrubs did not follow its footsteps but use a different kind of humor.
Don't get me wrong - I love Scrubs with its mix of comedy and drama and I also like HIMYM. But the only show I find myself laughing constantly after seeing an episode for the third or fourth time is friends.
No other show has a cast where I love every single member without any exceptions (with Scrubs its Carla, with HIMYM, its many of the supporting actors) and all of the recurring ones are very well picked, too.
The story arc is remarkable and its the ONE and ONLY show I know which could keep up with its quality for such a long time.
With FRIENDS you can laugh, you can cry and you can forget yourself for a while.
OK,Friends: My favorite show ever. This show really shows that friendship can lead you all to a path that never ends because your friendship never needs to end. It shows the mistakes people can make and how a friend can help you get through them, how to take the right step and when to take it. The actors are clearly great if they are able to pull off ten years of being with each other and making th ebest show ever made, I wouldn't be suprised if they were all friends right now thanks to that show. I can totally see why there are so many people making forms about the show and ppl meeting each other thanks to this show..... I have actually done so myself and I am happy to have something in common like that. All that's left to say is watch this show and you will get obsessed!!!!
This show is in my opinion the best show ever made when you want to laugh. Every time I watch one of the episodes I just cannot stop smiling. No matter how many times I have seen a scene or episode, it still makes me laugh. I think that is the beauty of this show, it will always make you laugh. Friends also has a terrific cast which makes it even better. The fact that the actors and actrices are also really good friends in real life makes the show even better. The viewer can really see the bond between them. So, whenever you are in a bad mood, just watch Friends and you will be smiling for the rest of the day!
I've been watching this show for a long time, I enter the show's site in TV.com always, and is til now that I decide to make a review for it. I dont undertsand why it took me so long to, but anyways:
This show is one of the best shows ever, is extremely funny and is one of my fave series. The show tells the story about Rachel, Ross, Chandler, Monica, Joey and Phoebe, six friends making their lives in Manhattan. The show started off funny, but after 10 years of run it became extremely popular and so so funny! This is the perfect show for you if you love to laugh!
Oh my god this is show is so awesome!
I have been watching Friends for a while now and I really think it is the best tv show ever to exist!
The show is about 6 Friends: Joey, Chandler, Monica, Ross, Rachel and Phoebe.
It follows their personal and professional lives in Manhattan, New York, for 10 years, and the writers make it amazingly awesome in every episode!
This show is soooo funny, and it is great to watch if you need some cheering up!
I would recommend Friends to anyone who enjoys comedy because it really is so good, and they should definately make a movie of it some day!
Best show ever!!
this tv show is really funny and great i love it i really really really like every episode and im gonna get them all on dvd and just watch them over and over again because its a great show for everyone and i think that they should make another series for all who have watched it and it is just really really good i would love to be in this its a great experience for everyone who watches this and its just a great show again and all the actors in this show is just wonderful and i think its wonderful how this show is set out
This show was and still remains one of the greatest sitcoms to have come out of the US. It has filled so many people with laughter and fond memories that allow the show to continuously inspire and keep new generations laughing. I've gained 6 lifelong friends!
I will always remember singing along with Phoebe, being a dork like Ross and loving when Monica's super competitiveness streak comes out. Rachel will always be my teen crush, Chandler my funny friend and Joey...my bimbo friend with all the picking up tips.
This show kept me entertained for 10 long years! It continues to entertain me to this very day, one can never be sick of watching Friends! When you're down Friends will pick you back up! When you're happy, Friends will make you happier and when you think you've had enough of Friends, you realise that you really haven't!
If you haven't already watched this show and fallen in love, do so, you don't know what you are missing out on. It shows you the true meaning and value of friendship...Friends will always be there.
I've probably watched every episode of Friends more than a dozen times and I'm still not tired of it. In all the ten seasons, there was not a single episode that disappointed me. My only complaint is it ended two seasons earlier. I liked all the characters of the show with the exception of Phoebe who got on my nerves sometimes. But even she was tolerable compared to some lousy characters of other sitcoms. Ross and Rachel were my favorites and the episodes focusing on their relationship from the earlier seasons were my favorites. Loved Chandler's sarcasms, Monica's OCD and Joey's stupidity. I'm pretty sure there will never be a sitcom that will entertain me as much as Friends has done. Hope they all come back for a reunion. Would love to see all of them together again. Friends Forever.
This is the best tv show ever. It's filled with laughter but also with nice,romantic moments. The actors were perfectly chosen for their parts as the most hilarious characters ever. I knew and liked Friends for many many years but only about 1-2 years ago I really got into it. I've always loved Jennifer Aniston but through the show I learned to love each character and also the actors who perform so well. Of course there are many oh so funny tv shows but with friends,there is not a single episode of which you can say that it's a bit less funny. Sure you've got your over the top funny episodes like "TOW Ross is fine" or the one where they play football on Thanksgiving but every episode is funny and it's really hard to pick your favourite season with Friends which I don't find that hard with other shows I watch. Friends Seasons 1-10 is just kind of a package deal which you will love. You might find the pilot a bit confusing because there's just a lot happening but it is one of the best pilot episodes I've ever seen. What I'm looking for in a TV show is a lot of romance but also a lot of laughter which is perfectly combined in FRIENDS. If you don't believe me,watch "TOW All The Other Ones" (you can download it or watch it online). Could this show BE any better? ;)
The greatest show ever, to see the lives of 6 friends develop all at once and basically grow up with them was truly great to watch. i wish the show could of have somehow run longer than it did but then again the characters were beginning new lives and didn't make much sense to continue any longer. the show had incredible writers and to entertain its viewers for ten years is amazing, not one episode was boring or mediocre. this show is quite possibly my favorite of all-time and maybe in the future a reunion show of sorts would be great to see how their lives have turned out to be.
I'll be fair in my review of FRIENDS, first off I love this show it's my favorite sitcom of all time. Season One: A good start, the cast was good but not at their best (this is probably because they just started the show) the jokes were sometimes corny but some were rather funny. While there were a lot of dud episodes, there were some really good episodes. 7/10
Season Two: A good second season, the cast improved and the chemistry was a lot better in Season 2, the jokes improved as well. There was some really good episodes and fewer duds, and some good story archs.
Season Three: Season Three is a great season, the Ross and Rachel relationship was really good and added to the show, each episode was really funny and had a good story. 8/10
Season Four: Another step forward for FRIENDS, in this season the cast was awesome, the writers wrote some really good episodes and archs for this season and a good cliffhanger.
Season Five: One of my favorite seasons, Season Five picks up right after season four, there were a lot of great episodes in season five, and the cast was great.
Season Six: Season Six picks up after Season 5, and there ensues insanity! I liked a lot of episodes in this season, and that the Chandler & Monica relatioship expanded. 9/10
Season Seven: Another one of my favorites, Season Seven was really funny (In my opinion) I liked every episode, the Monica and Chandler's Wedding story arch was really good. The only thing I didn't like was the Rachel and Tag relationship other than that great season.
Season Eight: Another favorite, Season Eight built mostly on Ross and Rachel's relatioship, the season had a lot of great episodes, and great chemistry between the cast.
Season Nine: A great season not many shows would still be this good after nine years but FRIENDS is, it has deffinatly with stood the test of time, season nine brings Emma into the fold, along a boyfriend from Pheobe's past. Great story archs, good episodes, and another great performance by the cast.
Season Ten: The final season of Friends was a bittersweet season, the final 18 episodes of the comedy that lasted a decade saw everything come together. Great episodes, great performance, good finale.
Friends is a show about six friends living in New York dealing with relationships and friendship.Every character is different and unique.There is Rachel who is a spoiled brat that has to become independent,Monica is a perfectionist chef,Phoebe is a cooky masseuse,Joey is a lickerish actor,Chandler is a funny accountant(or something like that) and Ross is a childish paleontologist.Every episode is funny and touching and it never gets boring.I've watched every episode of friends so many times and i still laugh so hard no matter how many times i have watched each episode.Whenever i feel under the weather i watch friends and i immediately feel better.
If you haven't seen,you are missing out on so many laughs and good moments.Friends is and will always be an important part of American television.
I like that they really evolved the characters in the 10yr period and made them really grow up. But what I find really amazing is the fact that even after 10yrs it never lost anything, the last show was just as funny as the first. I think my favorite period was after Monica and chandler got together, they made such a cute couple. I don't think I have a favorite character, they each bought their own 'something special' to the show and added their own magic. Kudo's to the whole team who bought this sitcom about. It's my all time favorite show and I can't go a day without watching a rerun.
OKey so when I really got into it it weas already cancelled by in my country they still air it twice a day and my cousins have all the seasons on DVD so i could watch it anyways. It's about the lives of 6 guys who hang out all the time. First you have Rachel, who escaped from her wedding and moved in with Monica. She has a continuing relationship with Ross, and had a baby with him (Emma). Next, there's Monica, mega neat-freak who ends up with Chandler, the funny guy. He lives with Joey, an Italian casanova guy. Next, there's Phoebe, the quirky one, and a singer, my favourite song she worte is Smelly Cat. And last and least is Ross, a paleontologist who divorced of her wife because she turned out a Lesbian, he is usually not funny but sometimes he is. If you're not familiar with Friends, watch it, you won't regret it.
This Show is probably one of the best tv shows to have every been aired. This is still one of the best shows on television, 6 years after its series finale in 2004. Ross and Rachel are probably the most real tv couple ever, their fluctuation is one of the shows funniest running gags. Chandlers constant fear of commitment is also a very funny running gag. How Phoebe fits in the group is perplexing, as pointed out by Rachel in "The One with the Kips". Everyone who has watched Friends knows they have met someone like Joey, dumb and purdy.
Friends is about Rachel Greene, a girl who stood her soon to be husband up at the altar and went to Monica Geller, who lives in New York City. Monica lives in her apartment with Pheobe Buffay, a loveable massause and musician who has had a very hard life, they are friends and across the hall from them live Chandler Bing, a joke type person who is awkward in the worst times and Joey Tribiani, an actor who isn't that smart. They are also Monica's friends. Monica has a brother whose name is Ross, who is in pursuit of on again-off again relationships with Rachel, he just divorced his wife because she was a lesbian.
Great Show, very funny, definetly watch it.
Friends is a great show. It's about 6 people living in New York and they have everyday problems somedays and very very unlikely problems the next day. And as the theme goes, they are there for each other, one of the most inspirational themes ever. Friends is just so funny, the sarcasam and Chandlers great jokes. As well as Joey's stupidity, and in season 1 and 2, the others stupidity and Joey's common scence. It is one of my favourite shows of all time, and i will always love it, definetly recomend you to watch it for sure. ... ...
Its a stress-buster. No kidding. Like, if you are having a badday, pick a random Friends episode and watch it. It can make your day. I mean, Friends is one show we can call EPIC. Because people all over the world watch it. And watch re-runs like a million times until they learn all of Chandler's jokes and all of ROss' facial expressions. Or maybe not. But, come on, you know you love the show. And if you haven't, you're missing out on alot. So go grab a DVD of the first season and start having some fun. WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IT:
Their bond. Like, they all know each other really well. Oh and Chandler's sarcasm. Rachel's hairstyle. Joey's stupidness. Ross' dinasour obsession (along with other obsesstions). Monica's loudness. Phoebe's freaky running style (although, it was fun. :D)
Friends was, is and will always be my favourite show. It focuses on the relationship of six people, six friends. It follows their lives, their loves, and their laughter. The show ran for ten seasons, and I watched those seasons from start to finish, and continue to watch repeats today. I constantly wish the show never ended.
Each character is different, yet they all mesh together wonderfully. Monica is the obsessive compulsive one, Rachel is spoiled but nice, Phoebe is weird, Joey is the dumb stud, Chandler is goofy, and Ross is into science and dinosaurs. Ross and Rachel have an ongoing romance throughout the series, Monica and Chandler get together in the middle and have the most stable relationship, Joey is a serial dater, and Phoebe finally meets and marries a man outside of the group. Each of them are there for one another through the highs and lows of their lives and they make you wish you had friends like them.
The beginning of the series is much much better then the final seasons, but once you start watching them you can't stop, for you feel as though you are apart of their lives, and you are the seventh friend.
If I'm going to continue visitng this website, I have to say this.
TV.com puts "Friends" above Seinfeld, The Office, Arrested Development, every other comedy, and a little behind from Scrubs; outrageous. What's the matter with you?! This show is not that good, if you know what comedy really is, deep down you know it isn't.
I used to like it, watched it before, and even so I always found myself knid of empty from watching it, didn't work for me. Some laughs from time to time, and the big laughs only came from the "laughing track", yeah. I found the six characters to be annoying, specially Chandler, his sarcastic "humor" sucked, not funny at all. Phoebe was too dumb, never got to like her way. And Ross, the only fun coming from him, was when he yelled to deny something, wow! how funny... Rachael, was always like "you know"... and then said something incoherent. Joey and Monica weren't too bad, the best two, I kind of liked them. The humor was totally average, not my type, it never got better. The comedy wasn't that great, although there was some pretty funny stuff. What made the show was the storylines that were somehow interesting, some were actually good.
I just don't want to give it more than 1/10, sorry.
I usually only watched FRIENDS when forced, and some of the writing was decent. I think that what got me about this show was how the women were all sell-outs and the guys were pretty much louses (except for Joey who was just plain stupid). Phoebe was the saving grace of this show for me. She actually had personality and was likeable. Rachel is generally annoying, chandler is homely, monica is a snot, and Ross is a pig. Nobody seemed to have any respect, not for themselves or each other. But I guess that's just television in general.
Friends is an occasionally fun show but rarely funny. The characters are sometimes likable, but the writing and even the delivery of the lines is too dumb, obvious and juvenile. The situations are are all formulaic. Seinfeld was a much better, innovative, and original show. Friends is a middle of the road sitcom that any Joe and Jane Average can enjoy. People call Seinfeld the show about nothing. In fact, it has a lot of clever satire and subplots in many episodes. Even the most "nothing" episode The Chinese Restaurant is better than any episode of Friends. Friends says nothing new, without it's handy laugh track it wouldn't have lasted one season. Friends truly is the show about NOTHING. Been There, Done That.
I never saw a black person on this show either in the background and defintely not as a main star of the show. I mean there could of been an episode because i know i haven't seen them all. Any way i think this show was over rated a little. It was a good show but it wasn't the best wb show like a lot of people say. They have some decent actors but for most of them that was gonna be there last time on the television screen which is pretty sad. Now guys say that lady (can't think of her name) with blonde hair is pretty. I don't see it but i'm looking at it from a girl eyes.
For a very long period of time, I thought of Friends as the best comedy show ever. Of course, back then there was no other alternative besides Friends on TV. From a more distant perspective, having seen what's "out there", I can now conclude that Friends is a good show - but nothing more. It is a funny show, though often not clever enough. Most jokes offer no verbal freshness, for instance. :) Phoebe and Joey's jokes are recurrently centred on giving a silly opposition of what is being said. Nevertheless, I would encourage viewers to give it a shot. It is a real joy for the masses.
Come on who told these people they were worth over a million each per episode.. My goodness such a stinker of a show....No talent in the actors, no writing talent, most of the time they recycled plots from year to year and no one noticed. Oh and how have the the shows spawned by theis thing fared.. well just ask Joey. However people seem to watch any trash on TV as long as it has a good soundtrack and a loud laugh track.... oh hey a good laugh track on a show must mean it is a classic sitcom.... NOT!!!!
Like all other "chick" shows, it's very popular, and then within 10 or 15 years, it's never heard of again. That's why I don't like it. That and it has "chick" humor. There are so many "chick" shows. Why? Only females and gay guys are going to watch it anyway. I don't get how they even win emmys. Put them up against classics like M*A*S*H, I Love Lucy, All In The Family or Bewtiched and the like and they won even be in the running. They'd just be another show and you flip past when looking for All In The Family.
