  • Friends, the play.

    This episode is amongst the very best of the whole Friends series. It has a rather unique style and setting making it stand out from the rest.

    The whole episode takes place in one single room, the main living room of Monica and Rachel's flat. While on paper this might sound somewhat boring, it is executed quite brilliantly with great interplay between the actors and, it has to be said, great writing.

    The story centers around Ross having a diner party at his museum and of course, all our friends are invited. We pick up the story with about 30 minutes left until they all have to leave... but no one is ready. Every character has a problem or situation to overcome in the short period of time, but the banter between Chandler and Joey is most certainly the pick of the bunch.

    This episode is part of the legacy of Friends, part of the series peak. Therefore a true classic.
