This summary covers everything that happened across 10 seasons of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Check it out!
It’s so hard to summarize a TV series that gave us so much from 1994 to 2004. F.R.I.E.N.D.S. must be an iconic TV series for the world, but it is so much more than that for us. This TV show played the role of a teacher, guide, and best friend for us. It never failed to make us feel less alone, regardless of how many times we rewatched every season. We didn’t know that it was possible to feel so many emotions while watching a TV series. Where one could find comfort and relatability in fictitious characters over real people. We cried when Monica proposed to Chandler, Phoebe walked down the aisle and Rachel got off the plane and laughed out loud in every episode throughout the 10 seasons. To this day, these 6 characters aren’t our friends, they’re family!
With the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. reunion coming up, we’ve felt the need to binge-watch this series but 240 episodes is a whole lot of time to spare in the middle of a workday. Wondering if you still remember everything that happened in every season?
If you don’t have the time to watch every episode, we’ve summarized every season right here for you. Check it out!
