Friends is an American television sitcom, created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, which aired on NBC from September 22, 1994, to May 6, 2004, lasting ten seasons.

Why It Rocks

  1. It launched the careers of all of the main characters in the show, such as Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, etc.
  2. All of the actors give amazing performances.
  3. The jokes! Nobody can explain how hilarious and wonderful they are! None of it is predictable in any way.
  4. Chandler Bing is probably one of the best characters in the series. He's funny, hysterical, and Matthew Perry is amazing when playing him.
  5. Every single character is likable and interesting, none are completely positive or negative.
  6. Its iconic theme song that has spawned memes.
  7. The episodes are fast-paced, meaning scenes can go by fast, making it all funnier.
  8. The show can actually tackle serious topics such as single parenthood, infertility, etc.
  9. Many iconic running gags, such as Phoebe's "Smelly Cat" song, which has garnered acclaim from fans of the show.
  10. Every single one of the characters has great chemistry with each other.
  11. The series finale is heartwarming to watch.
  12. Monica and Chandler's relationship is one of the best and helped them grow up as people.

Bad Qualities

  1. The show can be a bit unrealistic at times.
  2. Some of the shows jokes wouldn't be funny today.
  3. The show has received criticism for its lack of racial representation, although it's getting a racebent remake in the near future.
  4. Despite being the main couple of the show, Ross and Rachel's relationship is toxic from both parties as they usually acted like spoiled babies.
  5. The show had a few hole plot holes.
  6. Some of the characters are unlikable at times to the point where they can be considered annoying.
  7. The laugh tracks are used so often (about every other sentence) they get stale after a while.

I've sat through about four or five whole episodes and... I just don't get it. I haven't found a single thing funny or even mildly interesting about this show. Here's how every episode seems to go: X has sex or intends to have sex with Y. Everyone go bananas! So yeah that's why I hate Friends.
