I might probably be the gazillionth person whose talking about the awesomeness of friends for the gazillionth time. But no matter how many times we watch it, FRIENDS is epic. You could basically say the era of television could be classified as “Before Friends” (B.F.) and “After Friends” (A.F.).

Friends does not boast any complicated plotline or characters. Its just six ordinary people with their ordinary lives and how they manage their relationships and their career. Most of the catchphrases on Friends are legendary. “Friendzone” “Unagi” “We were on a break!” “They don’t know that we know that they know” “Pivot” and countless others. Everyone has their favorite episode and mine would be “The One With The Prom Video”.

But what makes the show so hugely popular? In my opinion its the simplicity of the whole thing. The humor was never forced but was so natural. Everyone could relate to a character in the series. The crazy things they did, the mistakes they make and everything.

Another really good thing about Friends is, each episode being just 20 minutes and going through the daily life of the characters, you could just take in any random episode abd watch it and laugh your heart out. Unlike a lot of TV series, you could actually enjoy an episode more than once, and sometimes you enjoy it even more , the more you watch it.

My sincere suggestion is, if you have’nt watched it, watch it. Its just 200+ hours of happiness that we can watch and enjoy. Trust me. You won’t regret it.
