FRIENDS Lovin’ | Independent

Sorry blog, I’ve neglected you this week!

Picking a favourite television series is a big call to make. There are so many great shows out there that we are almost overwhelmed for choice. Before you make the be all end all decision (just kidding, but seriously), there are several things that you must first consider. In my opinion, the following signs are indicative that a show could in fact be your all time favourite:

-You’ve seen every episode at least three times (and still find it entertaining).

-You find every day situations reminding you of the show.

-You quote it so much that you drive your friends insane.

For me, that show is without a doubt (drumroll please)… FRIENDS! I know it’s a bit of a generic answer, but let’s be honest, it’s the best show ever. It’s not often series that finished ten years ago still resonates with viewers today. Unfortunately I was a bit young for it’s initial release, but discovered it soon enough and it has since been my go-to program. Credit to the creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman, the brilliant crew and of course the awesome cast for piecing together such a timeless series.


My reason for bringing this up is that I came across an entertaining BuzzFeed article titled ’61 Things You Didn’t Know About Friends.’ Although quite a few of these facts were familiar, a fair amount still came as total surprise. One of my favourites being…

‘53. James Michael Tyler was cast as Gunther because he was the only extra who knew how to operate an espresso machine.’

How hilarious! Any Friends fans out there NEED to check this out. Click here!
