It’s been about 23 years when the first episode of F.R.I.E.N.D.S aired on TV and there came a revolution at the way we look at TV series. This one TV series comes as a tribute to friends in our lives and the little joys that we experience with our friends. 10 mind-blowing seasons with less than thirty episodes making it the perfect choice for binge watch sessions at home or with friends – Giving you a different level of bliss!
F.R.I.E.N.D.S. has been one of the longest running TV series on American Television and even longer for all the fans who repeatedly resort to binge watch it. Recommending F.R.I.E.N.D.S. to friends comes invariably be it repeating, watching first time or may be again. Here are the reasons why F.R.I.E.N.D.S. makes for a MUST WATCH!
1. The perfect laughter therapy!
So, you thought you could not laugh at your pathetic situations or after a breakup? F.R.I.E.N.D.S. gives you more reasons than one to enjoy your time with a bunch of six buddies who take you through their life journey revolving around the coffee shop and lives they lead. A funny mix of emotions, weird habits and getting back on friends makes this a perfect laughter therapy when we aren’t ready to even smile!
2. Phoebe Buffay
A group of friends is always incomplete without a simple-hearted idiot in it – well that is Phoebe Buffay for you! From penning and singing ‘Smelly Cat…’ to striking it right with the men, this woman wins heart while making us laugh out hard! She promises that she would make your belly hurt hard after each episode.
3. The Bing-Tribbiani duo!
Bro-mance existed even before you or I learnt the meaning of it, and this duo makes us realize it. Chandler Bing played by Matthew Perry is the one who is always perceived as gay because of his sarcasm-laughter as self-defense and Joey Tribbiani played by Matt LeBlanc is the actor (at least he made it!) and a huge heartthrob amongst women. Their bro-mance and even the solo roles are bang on along with some pickup lines you might pen down for use. ‘Hey! How are you doing?’
4. The flat where every mess happens
Have you ever imagined how it would feel to have six friends in a flat while they eat, fight, return from work and have major life decisions all at the same place? F.R.I.E.N.D.S. brought the idea of how blissful and completely obnoxious it could get when six friends stay together. Trust me it’s worth watching!
5. Ross and Rachel
From childhood players to modern day romance, this geek-designer couple is the funniest yet the sweetest romance you would have ever seen. How a geek paleontologist and a rich girl went to live life by her own terms come together in a relationship only to murmur the worst conversation as their breakup story – you don’t want to miss it!
6. Monica cleanliness Gell-er!
Surely the show sounds like a mixed bag of characters with a flat which may not ever get cleaned – Thank God for Monica! The sister of Ross, a chef, and a major cleanliness-dominant-orderliness freak that she is teaches us how each one of us is slightly obsessed with our own things. From being a great advisor to going wrong at major life decisions – Courtney Cox as Monica Geller is a delight to watch!
7. Get insights of your life!
If you thought that it’s only your dating scenes that have gone wrong or you are the only one obsessed with cleaning or even misunderstood by almost everyone you meet – Switch to FRIENDS for a revelation of a lifetime. F.R.I.E.N.D.S. definitely lets you know that there are a lot of things people go through and yet make it through life. So be it the senseless conversations, laughing at our own deeds or little quarrels – it all sounds like your very own.
8. Doesn’t feel lonely anymore!
This one comes as a serious advice! If you have been feeling lonely for long or haven’t been around your best buddies since a long time now, then the right way to spend hours with the best of friends is to tune into this TV series as this show definitely bets to be friends with you. With all the Drama, rush, emotions, laughter and weird talks – it almost feels like your bunch of idiots is right there next to you!
9. Simple and to-the-heart!
The characters of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. are simple and lovely! The sarcastic Chandler, the Foodie Joey, intellectual Ross, neat freak Monica, independent Rachel and the goofy Phoebe – simple people, simple situations and comedy in the simplest of ways! They win your heart with each conversation, expression, and style!
10. Timeless comedy!
It may occur that the jokes have made their way out in the public and won’t feel as laughable as they should – but they still feel like fresh from the oven and hit hard in the belly! If you laugh at them once, you will laugh at them 20 times over again – year after year!
F.R.I.E.N.D.S. is a beautiful account of the friendship of 20-something people in a big city which went iconic by every means!
