24 things 24 years of Friends has taught us

I have been writing this post ever since Friends came on Netflix and I started watching it. It’s definitely one of my favourite shows to watch on Netflix. It’s been almost 24 years since David Crane and Marta Kauffman have blessed us with the amazingness of a show that is friends. I loved watching them ‘grow up’. From kids not knowing what to do, to 30 year olds still not knowing what to do with a house and a baby.

I had never watched the entire 10 seasons all chronologically, but it really is awesome to do. It’s seriously one of my favourite programs ever. Because despite what people might say – oh it’s just a stupid comic show, no real thought went into that – they are completely wrong. So much thought went into the making of this show. It’s not easy making a program that people love, that’s funny and that remains on air for 10 seasons and will keep remaining on air for 10, 20, however long after that still. It doesn’t get outdated.
