Now in honor of the great work James Burrows has done, I present to you the top 10 reasons why I believe Friends is the greatest television show ever!
September 22, 1994, 22 years ago, Friends- the best show ever, graced our presence and here are my top 10 reasons why it really is the best!
1. Theme Song
Every episode allows you to bask in the greatness of the theme song.
2. ‘How you doing?’
A classic line was born thanks to everyone’s favorite hunk Joey Tribbiani.
3. Still Relevant
Let us be thankful that Friends is still a good guide to how to live life now, even 22 years later! There is an episode for every stage in our lives; heartbreak, change in jobs, relationships, moving, the list goes on…
how to avoid fake tan disaster …and that a head full of braids may not always be the best idea.
4. 20’s Struggle
As Monica once told Rachel: “Welcome to the real world! It sucks – you’re going to love it.”
Unlike TV shows nowadays, Friends never tried to gloss over the realities of life in your 20’s, when you have no idea what you are doing in life.
I mean life could be worse…your co-workers could lock you in the cooling fridge…poor Monica.
5. Apartment Goals
We all know Monica’s apartment could have never been owned by a 20-something year-old if they were the children of a millionaire, but has that stopped anyone from trying to copy it. I mean the painted purple door with and the glued gold frame.
6. Relationship Rules
Friends shared many awkward relationship situations before even Tinder was invented! Lets take Ross for example…accidentally being left out of a threesome…the murky rules of being on a break and lets no forget the importance of not saying your ex’s name during your wedding vows.
7. So Many Cameos
Brad Pit, Julia Roberts, George Clooney, and Robin Williams (just to name a few) all starred in Friends. You wont see names like that in any other television series!
8. It Never Gets Old
Can you name any other show that can watch over and over again and still laugh at the same jokes.
9. Smelly Cat
What Smelly Cat was fed is still one of the greatest mysteries, but this is still one of the greatest karaoke songs…I mean even Taylor Swift loves the song!
10. The Friends Themselves
The six characters are the core of what makes “Friends” televisions best show. Every single character is relatable and loved by every fan. We all have a little bit of Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, and Joey in us in some way, shape, or form.
