When one thinks of the greatest ever TV sitcoms, one of the shows that will undoubtedly cross ones mind is Friends.
The classic had one of the most successful runs in TV sitcom history, spanning 10 seasons and is still to this day one of the most streamed shows. Even though it might not feel like it, due to the show’s persistent popularity, the pilot episode of the show aired exactly 28 years ago on NBC on the 22nd of September 1994.
Due to the modern switch towards streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu and Disney +, Friends’ legacy continues on indefinitely, with people binging it or keeping it in the background as a mainstay of pop-culture.
The show also acted as the Hollywood breakout for the actors of the 6 protagonist characters Jennifer Aniston (Rachel), David Schwimmer (Ross), Matthew Perry (Chandler), Courtney Cox (Monica), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe) and fan favourite Matt Le Blanc (Joey).
As of right now, the easiest way to rewatch Friends for the 1000th time in Malta would be through Netflix, but multiple channels and stations have it on re-runs. It’s too big to miss it’s existence at this point.
