Top 10 Best Episodes of Friends TV Serial

1 2

This legendary sitcom started way back in September, 1994 and has been a rage ever since. It has catered to the humor of people across generations and continents. It had a successful run of ten seasons over the span of ten years and saw various life events and change in fate and lives of the characters. Ross starred by David Schwimmer, Chandler by Matthew Perry, Joey by Mall LeBlanc, Phoebe by Lisa Kudrow, Rachel by Jennifer Anniston and Monica by Courtney Cox, were friends both onscreen and off screen. Written by brilliant people- David Crane and Marta Kauffman, later added on by other writers, this sitcom is a staple for TV serials watchers.

I am always surprised to see how there is a stark similarity between friends and all other sitcoms present today. All episodes supplement to our daily dose of sarcasm and sometimes even the way we make decisions in our lives as if we were those characters. The awards it won and the ranks it acquired has very little to do with how we grew up on these episodes and how even still in our lives we think of what Joey might have done or Chandler would have said, or ponder over the trialed and triturated life of Ross and Rachel. Here’s bringing you some of the best episodes from all ten seasons. If you are ever feeling sad about anything or just want to pep up your mood, turn them on, on your sets and you are good to go. Even though with their genius storyline and impeccable acting in each episode, it was quite an impossible feat to choose these ten.

2. The One where It All Began S01E01

The One where It All Began

This doesn’t need any introduction. This pilot episode of the Friends season sums up the whole spirit of friends.
