F.R.I.E.N.D.S, it’s not just a TV series, but for the most of us, it’s an emotion. A show that we love, relate to, enjoy and adore to the core. The ones who have already watched it know what I’m talking about. And to the ones who are yet to, you’re missing out a great deal. I suggest you fire up your PC now and go watch it. I bet you, you will be addicted even before you know it. We all were pretty disappointed when the show ended 13 years ago leaving us in tears. And even though it has been more than a decade now since it ended, the love we have for it still remains the same. Here are 8 reasons why we will always love F.R.I.E.N.D.S :
1. Duh! It’s based on one of the most important factor of our life. Friendship!
As the name itself suggests, it is based on six friends who make way through the ups and downs of life all the while never leaving each other’s side. The way they stick by each other in times of happiness and sorrow is an ideal example of how a friendship should be.
2. Need something to cheer you up? F.R.I.E.N.D.S is your answer.
The humor it is packed with can’t ever be matched. Even on the worst of your days, I guarantee you, one episode of f.r.i.e.n.d.s and you will forget everything that you were upset about and will be rolling on the floor laughing within minutes.
3. It is completely relatable.
Waiting for true love? Ross will be your companion. Are you a complete control and cleanliness freak to the point of OCD? Monica will give you tips on how to improve. Struggling to make way in your life? Rachel will be your guru. Be it the comments, the fun we make of each other or the fun we have with each other, or the way we all get together to support our friend in need, you will find everything on there.
4. Who isn’t a fan of Chandler’s sarcasm or his adorable awkwardness?
Suffice to say, Chandler is the father of sarcasm. We all are a huge fan of Chandler. And for all the sarcastics out there, he’s their lord. The one we all look up to. And girls, don’t you dare tell me you aren’t jealous of Monica for snagging such an amazing guy. We all fell in love with his adorable awkwardness the moment we laid eyes on him.
Do I need to say anymore? Anyone who says they don’t love Joey are either heartless fools or are lying. At least for me he is the kind of guy I want to end up with. Funny, adorably dumb, completely lovable, loyal, the best friend one could ever find. And above all, his love for food especially PIZZA sealed the deal! And a man who can love so selflessly is definitely worth falling for.
6. Phoebe’s goofiness and Rachel’s accomplishments despite all odds.
Okay. I honestly don’t have words to describe the amount of adoration and respect I have for these two ladies. The self respect and self content that Phoebe has is inspiring, she has taught us all to be unapologetically our self and how despite all odds, Rachel ends up at one of the most reputed position in the field of her expertise which shows if you have the will, everything you do acts as a stepping stone to the destination you want to reach one day.
7. Ross and Monica are sibling goals.
From the fights and secrets they hold over each other to the love they have for one another, the way they are there for each other, support each other, diss each other, try to prove each other wrong, trying to prove who is better, anything and everything you think and feel are what they go through too. But in the end, irrespective of their differences, the love they have for each other never fades and they are ready to take a bullet for each other if need be.
8. It teaches us few of the most important lessons of life.
It’s not only a comedy show where they mess or goof around to make us laugh. It’s a series where you learn all life’s lessons. How to use failure as your guide, how to get over heartbreak, how friends become family, how you find love in the most unexpected places, how to let go of things and people that are not meant for you, how to rejoice in what you have, how to follow your passion, how to unapologetically be yourself, how to be there for the people you love.
As I stated earlier, F.R.I.E.N.D.S isn’t just a TV show, it’s an emotion. They began with a promise, ‘I’ll be there for you.’ and have kept it till date!
