Trivia

During the course of the series, all six of the friends change their jobs at least once. However, Chandler is the only one who never involuntarily left his job. Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, and Joey were all fired at some point during the series, and Ross was required to take a temporary (later permanent) sabbatical from the museum following his divorce from Emily.

Crazy Credits

When the "The One That Could Have Been" was divided into two parts for syndication, a sequence was added that had the ending credits superimposed. It shows fat Monica dancing to some music while eating some food. The original hourlong airing of "The One That Could Have Been" did not have the credits at the end of the first half hour and this scene was not involved. See more »

Alternate Versions

The first airing of the pilot episode in syndication featured approximately 10 additional minutes of footage, including a musical number by Phoebe. This 30 Minute version has just become available on the Region 4 DVD of Friends. It includes Phoebe's song, and extended scenes at the coffee house and in Ross' lounge putting together the home entertainment unit. This version is not available on the Australian Video release.

User Reviews

One of the best sitcoms ever
14 April 2005 | by PugPersonSee all my reviews

After seeing every episode of this much loved sitcom i much say that the writers and cast have succeeded in making something that is not only humorous, but also forces you to care about the characters and what happens to them in the future. All six of the friends bring characteristics to the show that make the viewer feel like they know them. Each one of the characters is funny in their own way and due to the shows fast pace there is never a boring episode.

I will say however that towards the end Friends did start to lose what it had but, never the less was still very good. I started watching the show at series five but from then on i was hooked.

I recommend this sitcom to anyone and everyone.
