The deal Netflix had with the Warner Media expired on January 1, 2020 which meant that Friends had to go off air. While there are mixed reactions to this, we know that many would miss the episodes on Netflix for sure. Friends is one television show that every generation can relate to and resonate with. If you are in your early 20’s or late teens, you can surely understand the humor that is contained in the episodes. It is a fun way to escape from every day problems and laugh it out.
Friends follows the story of six young men and women who are all friends. Rachel, Ross, Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe become the highlight of the show. The episodes depict the friends’ comedic and romantic adventures and career issues, such as Joey auditioning for roles or Rachel seeking jobs in the fashion industry. The six characters each have many dates and serious relationships, such as Monica with Richard Burke, and Ross with Emily Waltham. Ross and Rachel’s intermittent relationship is the most often-recurring storyline; during the ten seasons of the show, they repeatedly date and break up. Ross briefly marries Emily. Ross and Rachel have a child together after a one-night stand, Chandler and Monica date and marry each other, and Phoebe marries Mike Hannigan. Other frequently recurring characters include Ross and Monica’s parents Jack and Judy Geller from Long Island; Ross’s ex-wife Carol Willick, their son Ben Geller as well as Carol’s wife Susan Bunch; Central Perk barista Gunther; Chandler’s ex-girlfriend Janice Goralnik; and Phoebe’s twin sister Ursula.
If you are ever feeling down and tired, just put up any season of the show and you will get in a better mood immediately. It works like magic.
