This post is not about friends. This post is about Friends. Yes, the gang: Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Ross, Chandler and Joey. 236 episodes over 10 years (1994-2004). 

I just started season 8 through my first time watching the series. People always seem quite surprised that this is my first watch. I had a seen a couple episodes before here and there but never really saw the appeal. 

I finally started from episode 1. Even though itโ€™s a sitcom, thereโ€™s nothing like watching it all the way through. Getting to know and love the characters is what makes the show stick. You donโ€™t get Janice until you know Janice. Thereโ€™s an underlying storyline that runs deep and you will be rewarded if you commit to it.

I can see now how Friends is such a core piece of Hollywood entertainment. Itโ€™s so timeless even though Iโ€™m watching it over 20 years after it started. The jokes are still funny and the people are still relatable. Everybody knows the theme song. 

Iโ€™m glad Iโ€™m finally getting around to watching it. Especially since they almost took it off Netflix. I now understand all the Friends references, gifs, and memes. Watching a few episodes such a lighthearted and wholesome way to end a long work day.
