Celebrating the Sitcom Friends
The TV sitcom Friends debuted on NBC, in 1994. The show ran for ten seasons. It would win many Golden Globe and Emmy nominations. The show was created by David Crane and Martha Kauffman. The basis for the show is about 6 friends who live in Manhattan, New York City.
The cast was filled with fun-loving comedic characters that you could relate to. Rachel Green, played by Jeniffer Aniston and Monica Geller, played by Courtney were best friends. Green was a waitress while Geller was a Chef. Phoebe Buffay played by Lisa Kudrow was a musician. For the men on the show, Joey Tribbiani was a small-time actor, Ross Geller a paleontologist, and Chandler Bing was a M-F businessman. The show was so special due to the dynamic between the cast.
The show was centralized at the coffee house called Central Perk where Rachel worked. It was the scene of many great moments. Ross and Rachel getting back together and Phoebe singing Smelly Cat just to name a few. Gunther, who worked with Rachel was a very underrated part of the show. Gunther, who always had a crush on Rachel, would always have great one-liners.
Every character had their own distinct characteristic that made them stand out. Their was no true unanimous favorite character on the show. Everyone had a different favorite. Joey and Rachel would stand out the most but every character would get a vote for the best character on the show.
Joey and Chandler’s humor and dialogue with each other throughout the years was legendary. They will forever stand the time as one of the best TV bromances ever.
Elliot Gould, Christina Pickles, Tom Selleck, Paul Rudd, Tagg Jones, Sean Penn, Bruce Willis, and many others had guest-starring roles. These characters helped add to the relationships of the cast.
Friends was a 90s cult sitcom that people still swear to this day was the best sitcom in modern television history.
