F.R.I.E.N.D.S- 25 years later and it still makes you laugh

Even after 25 years since the start of F.R.I.E.N.D.S I cannot find a show that can beat it.

The main characters Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Joey and Chandler made me cry, think about life, love, and my career. Funnily enough I just started watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S 25 years later, I have always heard praise about the show, but I didn’t think I would relate to it because it was set so long ago, in 1994.

However, I was wrong, I was able to finish the whole 10 seasons, which ran for 10 years, in under a few months. The show is about six friends in their 20s and 30s who live in New York city and is the realistic depiction of reality.

It shows everything about the life from the uninviting reality of jobs to the horrors of dating. Moreover, it stars the following actors which I think did a profound job: Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matt Leblanc, Courtney Cox and David Schwimmer.

The characters are so addictive, and I feel as if I am part of their friend’s group every time, I watch it. In my view I feel like everyone can relate to them with their very unique and strong personalities: Monica: The mother of the group who is always neat and organized. Rachel: Sensitive and bubbly. Phoebe: Lovable and Crazy. Chandler: Sarcastic and funny. Ross: The Nerd.Joey: The ladies’ man.

Every episode is relative to the previous one, and whenever I watched one episode, I kept on wanting to watch more and more. All in all, I think F.R.I.E.N.D.S is wonderful because it has a humour which is universal, and it is a show everyone must watch. I strongly believe this classic comedy still hits the mark.
