Impact

Critical reception

Early reviews of the series were mixed. Tom Feran of The Cleveland Plain Dealer wrote that the series traded "vaguely and less successfully on the hanging-out style of Seinfeld",[51] while Ann Hodges of the Houston Chronicle called it "the new Seinfeld wannabe, but it will never be as funny as Seinfeld."[52] In the Los Angeles Daily News, Ray Richmond named the series as "one of the brighter comedies of the new season",[53] and The Los Angeles Times called it "flat-out the best comedy series of the new season".[54]
.Chicago Sun-Times' Ginny Holbert found Joey and Rachel's characteristics to be underdeveloped,[55] while Richmond commended the cast as a "likeable, youth ensemble" with "good chemistry"[53] Robert Bianco of USA Today was complimentary of Schwimmer, calling him "terrific". He also praised the female leads, but was concerned that Perry's role as Chandler was "undefined" and that LeBlanc was "relying too much on the same brain-dead stud routine that was already tired the last two times he tried it".[56] The authors of Friends Like Us: The Unofficial Guide to Friends thought that the cast was "trying just a little too hard", in particular Perry and Schwimmer.^ At the same time, too much routine gets boring so we like to mix it up a bit.

Simple English

Friends (1994-2004) was a comedy television series. It was about 6 friends who live in New York City. They were in their 20s or 30s. The names of the "friends" were: Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Phoebe and Joey.

The Friends

  • Monica Elizabeth Geller (Courteney Cox) - She used to be fat, is a control freak, and is compulsively organized. She is Ross' sister and in season 7, marries long-term boyfriend Chandler and adopts 2 babies in the last (jack and erica )episode of the series.
  • Chandler Muriel Bing (Matthew Perry) - Early in the series, he was a self-confessed commitment-phobe, but in season 7 finale, he marries Monica, his girlfriend of three years. One of his most famed traits is his finely-tuned sense of humour. His father is a transsexual, and works in Las Vegas and his mother is a renowned adult book writer.
  • Joey Francis Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc) - He's the 'stupid' one, and is a struggling actor, but scored a break in s2 in soap opera Days Of Our Lives, and then again in s7. He remained on "Days" until the end of the series. He had a lot of sexual partners/flings throughout the series, but had strong feelings for a fellow actress in s3 and fell in love with his roommate, Rachel, in season 8. Post-finale he was the main character in the spin-off, Joey.
  • Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) - She's quirky, flakey and fun-loving. She got married to Mike 6 episodes from the last episode, but before this she had never had a serious relationship. She also plays guitar and is a masseuse. Phoebe is known to have lived on the streets as a young adult after her mother committed suicide.
  • Rachel Karen Green (Jennifer Aniston) - She first moved to New York in the first episode after running off from the altar. She is perhaps the character who has made the most development- going from spoiled, rich Daddy's girl to an independent and confident woman. She had a famous on-off relationship with Ross, which spanned the entire series. She has a daughter with Ross Geller named Emma.
  • Dr. Ross Eustace Geller (David Schwimmer) - A paleontologist. He had a famous on-off relationship with Rachel, who he had a crush since he was 15. He has been married three times, once to Carol, once to Emily and once to Rachel, in a drunken Vegas wedding. He is not married at the end of the show, but has two children- Ben, to his first wife and Emma, to Rachel. He and Rachel seem to be back together at the end of the show.

Other key characters

  • Janice - An on-off girlfriend of Chandler's who has a shrieking nasal voice and is most famous for her 'oh - my - god' catchphrase.
  • Gunther - The bleached blonde haired guy who works in 'Central Perk'. He has appeared in the majority of episodes. Gunther is madly in love with Rachel who does not find out until the very last episode.
  • Treeger - The superintendent for the apartment building most of the friends live in. His most active role was in the episode where Joey practiced dancing with him because he was too afraid to dance with girls.
  • Mike- Portrayed by Paul Rudd, he was one of Phoebe's significant boyfriends. He and Phoebe met when Joey and Phoebe decided to set each other up with blind dates, but Joey forgot on the day of, and ended up bringing a random person who happened to have the name Mike (Joey told Phoebe that was his name before he found Mike). They decided to move in, but on moving day, broke up due to Mike not wanting to marry again after his painful divorce. They end up getting back together, and getting married. In the finale, it is revealed that they will have a baby together.
