My favorite TV show on Netflix is “Friends” because it has great humor and it shows how hard it is to live in New York City. “Friends” is a show that no matter how many times you watch it the show is still hilarious. The reason why “Friends” is my favorite show is for these three reasons one, “Friends” is a great bonding show to watch, two, it’s a great show to watch when you’re down, and three, the characters are so relatable.


“Friends” made Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, and David Schwimmer famous and out there. All the actors became best friends on and off screen. After “Friends” ended in 2004, Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston became huge actresses. Most of the actors are still around and are still doing acting jobs.


The plot line changes as the episodes change, but the general idea of friends is about six twenty something year olds living in New York that are going through family, relationships and friendship struggles. Some episodes were about how they were in the past or how they’ve changed since they last saw someone. In every episode, no matter what the episode is about, the six friends were always in ‘Central Perk’ their favorite coffee shop.


“Friends” is a great show to watch when you’re down because there’s always funny jokes and stupid things that can make you laugh. The jokes and funny lines never stop even when the episode is a sad or serious one. This show is my favorite 90s show because the characters are super supportive for their friends and they always help them whenever they need help. “Friends” opened my eyes about the truth of friendship. Friends is a show where once you start you can’t stop watching it. I’ve watched all 10 seasons but I still continue to watch it.
“When I couldn’t sleep, I’d turn on the TV to Nickelodeon just to watch ‘Friends’,”said Haylie Laws, 7th grader. “Friends” is on Netflix, Nickelodeon, MTV, CBS, and many other TV Channels. Laws loves Rachel because she’s very “quirky” and her style is that “90s look” that many girls look up too. “My friends say I’m mostly like Monica because I’m very straightforward like her,” Celine Valerio, 7th grader. Valerio loves “Friends” because it’s “Hilarious” and knows how to make people laugh.
