If you haven’t heard of the TV show F.R.I.E.N.D.S., you’re missing out on all the laughs, friendship, love, and positive vibes..

While most of us may have begun watching American sitcoms with popular shows such as Friends, Big Bang Theory, and others, few of us believe it is simply an old television series with a group of friends conversing in various locations.

About Friends

Friends is a U.S sitcom created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman.

It was aired on NBC from September 22, 1994 –
May 6, 2004.

The title song “I’ll be there for you” is a beautiful song about life and friendship in general, but it also has a lighter and more humorous side to it.

There are six actors in key roles :

Jennifer Aniston as Rachel Green,
Courteney Cox as Monica Geller,
Lisa Kudrow as Phoebe Buffay,

Matthew Perry as Chandler Bing &
