The famous comedy Friends debuted on NBC in the fall of 1994, running for a decade with its 236 episodes (basically more than a combined tally of Lost and Orange Is The New Black).
It worked because at that time we didn’t need a TV that worked like a cinema: we liked to watch some anti-cinematic American comedies that were full of hilarious dialogues, ridiculous situations, and jokes. After all, the Friends‘ winning formula was the familiarity: we spent so many nights watching Friends episodes just to get into the lives of those six friends in New York (and we were really interested in their stories).
We can’t stop watching it even now not just because it feels like a golden age in our adolescence but also because those “Friends” have become our second family in a decade.
The Rembrants sing in the opening theme “I’ll Be There For You” and so it was: they’re there and they’ll always be, like real friends.
