This year marks the 10 year anniversary since our beloved show, Friends, went off the air and 20 years ago since it premiered.
Friends is the story about six friends and their everyday life. The show is not a very complex show (like the ones we see today) but it offered something that we could look forward to week to week. Each character was complex and interesting and we loved every single one of them.
Friends has been nominated for 63 Emmys, winning six. Out of the six, five of them were for Outstanding Comedic series in 1995, 1996, 1999, 2000, and 2003. There were 10 season with a total of 236 episodes.
The show was more then just about the six friends. It offered us a show that the whole family could watch on a Thursday night and laugh at. It’s a timeless show that can still get fans to laugh during syndication. Fans love the show so much that they pray that one day there will be reunion (though creators Marta Kauffman and David Crane have repeatedly stated that they will never do a reunion).
While Friends lives now in syndication, it’s hard to believe that it’s been a whole decade since we have seen any new episodes. And if you are a true Friends fan, there are times when you go on Youtube and just watch clips and blooper reels over and over again because not only do they make you laugh, they make you remember how special the show was and how it really was a once in a life time show. Some shows have tried to replicate it, but none have reached the bar that Friends has made.
Here is a list of he top 10 shows and why we love them so much. Of course, it was near impossible to just pick ten, but these ten have stood out to me and when I think of Friends, I think of these shows.
