"#Friends" is one of the most wonderful TV shows ever. It has 10 seasons with 236 episodes, each of which is named differently. Every episode makes you laugh, cry, believe a little more in love and regain your trust in friendship. It stars Jennifer Aniston as the stylish #Rachel Green, Courteney Cox as the cleanliness-freak #Monica Geller, and Lisa Kudrow as the masseuse. Then there is musician Phoebe Buffay, Matt LeBlanc as the food-obsessed Joey Tribbiani, Matthew Perry as the king of sarcasm, Chandler Bing, and David Schwimmer as the one-who-can-write-a-book-on-divorce, Ross Geller.

The original air date of the last episode titled "The Last One" of this popular sitcom was aired on May 6, 2004; however, people still watch all the seasons over and over again.

'Friends' teaches you everything about life

  • You learn about life: "Friends" teaches you how important it is for you to fall in love, how life is when you stay with your friends, how to handle misunderstandings when they arise in your family or friends, how some friends become your family and how self-dependence can be the best thing in your life. Basically, it teaches you everything about life.
