The series Friends can make anyone dream of wanting to have a bunch of friends and to live that way of life. Created by Marta Kauffman and David Crane this series started in 1994 and ended in 2004 with 10 seasons. I can hardly imagine someone who has never watched Friends. If such person exists, they has missed a lot for sure. Re-watching Friends is like reading your favorite book for the nth time because you just cannot stop doing that. This series is one of the longest running comedy shows in the history of American television that revealed one of the best today’s Hollywood stars, Jennifer Aniston. It is not just a TV series; it’s a way of life. Check out the reasons why you should watch or re-watch it no matter of your age, nationality or gender and find out why this series worth your time:
Reasons why Friends worth your time:
- Watching Friends is the best way to SPEND your time, not waste
Someone may say that watching series is one of the most stupid ways to spend your time. However, you definitely cannot say that about Friends because there is no better way to make you laugh. You may have mixed emotions after watching it, but the “funny factor” prevails. Friends is a must-watch series, I should say, with your friends or alone. Just imagine, you come home after a long hard day and watch Friends sipping coffee in your comfortable home pants, what could be better?
- Phoebe Buffay
Phoebe Buffay, played by Lisa Kudrow is definitely a reason to re-watch for the nth time or watch the series if you have not seen it before. Phoebe is so much fun and her self-composed songs are something really special, and her “Smelly Cat” is certainly a masterpiece! This character cannot leave you indifferent, believe me! You cannot stop laughing when watching her, be ready to pause, because she really makes you laugh! You will never get bored of this character; her personality is so simple and complex at the same time.
- Joey Tribbiani and Chandler Bing
These two guys are incredible ones! Joey Tribbiani played by Matt LeBlanc is the main heartbreaker in the series; he is like a male version of Phoebe Buffay, so he is as fun as Phoebe. Chandler Bing played by Matthew Perry is more mature than Joey, usually, he has the “bromance scenes” with Joey and is one considered to be a gay. These two guys have petty fights, love for Baywatch and common girls to pick up. That makes them adorable!
- Rachel and Ross
This is definitely the main love story of the entire series. When these two ended up together you become so happy. The geek paleontologist Ross Geller (David Schwimmer) and fashion lover Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston) are the sweetest couple for sure. TV Guide’s list of the best TV couples of all time included Ross and Rachel’s relationship. They look so cute and good together, watching all their breakups, failed relationships from past experiences and reconnecting, you are living the worries of these lovebirds.
Monica (played by Courtney Cox) is an addict of orderliness and cleanliness. There is always that one person in a family or in a group of friends who is crazy about things. In Friends, Monica is that person. It is a great pleasure watching her competitive personality and humorous scenes. The episodes with her crazy addiction to cleanliness throughout the series can easily become your favorite!
- Other Supporting Guests and Actors
Besides those six main characters, there are lots of other guest stars and supporting actors who will make you laugh. More than 30 guest stars will show up including Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, and Dakota Fanning.
- You will appreciate and love your friends more
Besides the biological family, you have the other one, your friends. You start realizing it despite all weird moments, senseless talks or petty quarrels. Friends helps you to rethink and understand how lucky and blessed you are if you have true friends. This series makes you love your friends more for sure!
- Watching Friends with your friends
What could be better than watching Friends with your friends? Just be sure to prepare snacks and have the best time ever! If you have not done it before, invite your friends over right now and whether they have watched it or not, you will definitely have a good time! If someone does not like Friends, don’t call him a friend anymore! ;) It is impossible for me to believe that someone will not like it. One of my favorite options is to talk about all those hilarious scenes of Friends with the ones who are as crazy about this series as I am.
All these reasons are still not enough because the reasons to watch this series are endless! I do believe that it became a classic; this sitcom is and will be one of the most favorite ones for sure! If you have not yet become a fan of Friends you know what you should do, start right now!
