What are you saying?


Friends has aged so well! The jokes are as funny as ever and that amazing, tongue-in-cheek humour is pure gold.


The best part about the show is that the humour is rooted in the situations AS WELL as the characters' mannerisms. It's not forced humour, it's not tacky, it's not slapstick.


That brand of humour is timeless, because it transcends generations and actually organic and evergreen.


Watch it again, is all I'll say -- the show deserves every bit of acclaim it has garnered and more.

It's not overrated , it's just outliving it's longevity and relatability, 10-15 years more ,it will be forgotten only to be remembered by 90s Boomer generation.

With younger generation having no idea what it is.

The show has great rewatchability factor(more than any other sitcom I have watched). Also I don't understand people calling the show problematic. The show tells the story of six friends,its not preaching anything. It's up to you to like or dislike a character.

what I like about friends is that the dialouges dont seem forced .It doesnt llok like characters r purposefully making one jokes after another like most sitcoms. Its believable conversations which are hillarious on its own.

Friends is like comfort food, the most rewatchable of all sitcoms.

Yes some of the content has not aged well and the whole OTP of Ross and Rachel feels way overrated and stupid now 

Friends is universally liked because it does not get boring even after multiple watches.

It was also not a preachy show, just 6 friends hanging around and navigating through life, career and personal lives.

Absolutely not. I have watched my fair share of sitcoms and it is the best one. 

You dont need to watch the show from Season 1 to enjoy it, the jokes are still very fresh and the actors were great in those roles.

Even the storylines I can understand were probably scandalous in the 90s, the lesbian wedding, Monica dating an older man, Phoebe being the surrogate for her brother, but they are still relevant...in fact much more mainstream now. 

My other two favourites were The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men till Charlie Sheen was in the show. 

monica dating an older man was disgusting, he literally watched her growing up when she was a kid smiley11

Agree.. Its not that funny and probably would have flopped if it was released in 2020
