Six young people, on their own and struggling to survive in the real world, find the companionship, comfort and support they get from each other to be the perfect antidote to the pressures of life. Written by

Gunther was not originally a speaking part. See more »
Ross' birthday changes several times during the show. For example, it goes from December in the first episodes to October 18th in the later episodes. See more »
Now, honey, I know you don't like to relinquish control...
Oh! Relinquish is just a fancy word for "lose"!

The credit clips are changed regularly, about twice a season. In TOW London the clips are only those that occur in that episode (Such as Chandler and Monica waking up in bed together, and a pregnant Phoebe eating cereal on her belly) See more »
I've been reading a lot of these comments. Some people don't like the show...claiming it to be unrealistic or that the plot lines get boring.
I didn't discover Friends until a year or two ago (thanks to MY friends) but I ADORE the show in syndication and I hope to own the DVDs. Its damn funny and no one can deny it. Except for stiffs. And whats best about Friends is that its REAL.
Ross and Rachel getting old? How could it? Do relationships get old in real life? No, they're ongoing, sometimes stagnating, sometimes changing. Thats REAL.
This show is about 6 people who love each other like family...which I must say as an 18 year old... is very real. Once you hit your late teens - early twenties...things begin to change. You grow both closer to and further from your biological family, and as you reach more independence, you adopt another family of your own: YOUR FRIENDS.
We may not all sit in coffee shops, but we all LOVE our friends like they were blood. That's what this show is about. Makes you all warm and fuzzy (and sore from laughing) inside. And as a show: FRIENDS will always be a part of MY family.
