Solid 10/10 for me, they do not make sitcoms or shows like that anymore. I'm litteraly sleeping while listening to videos of this every night. Top notch writing, excellent performances and genuine atmosphere and dynamics between the characters. Also shot in front of a live studio audience. It's quality comedy.

8.5/10 for me. One of the few sitcoms I like and still make me laugh.

Honestly....I could never get behind Friends and don't see the hype behind it. I much prefer sitcoms like HIMYM or IASIP over it.

A solid 10/10 for me,it's a masterpiece and my favorite comedy sitcom and I have watched it more than 15 times.

P.s. Ross is my favorite and they were on a break.

Gave it a 6.honestly,found it very overrated. They just kept recycling the same plots over and over.

I never wanted to watch Friends back when it started in the 90's because it just sounded stupid. But eventually I did start watching it and it was actually very funny. I think it should really rank up there as one of the best TV comedies. 8/10

8/10

7. It is overrated IMO. I would rate it lower than The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men (pre-Charlie's death).

Ross hurts my brain

Later as the series progressed he got funnier. Just the tone he used and the unfortunate stuff that happened to him.

@jay_z94: I think Phoebe was probably the funniest of the group.

I always loved Mr and Mrs Geller though, soft spot for them. They always had some of the finest lines in the series.

Phoebe was really crazy but imo i think many of the characters had freakish sense of perspective like Ross playing the piano , or Monica's obsession for cleanliness or Joey's illiteracy and Rachel's selfishness in terms of relationships and Chandler's virginity of not getting married .........

@biswaboxz: Rachel was pretty much the only person without a particularly weird attribute. She was more or less the straight-man for a good bit of the series. Not an obsessive, competitive clean freak, a geek, a traumatised insecure guy, a weirdo with extra big childhood issues or a downright dumb guy.

Her thing to start with was the "prissy and oblivious rich girl who doesn't understand real life" but that kind of died over time. Rachel's character actually goes through by far the biggest arc of the series in my opinion, though she's probably my least favourite of the bunch when all's said and done.

@rogueshadow:

I think Rachel and Chandler have more character development than the rest by a very wide margin that's for sure. I was referring to the 'weirdness' factor of each character. In a comedic sense, Rachel was more of a "straight man" than the rest for good part of the series, though Monica also played that role whenever she wasn't obsessive or competitive.

6-7.

First six seasons were awesome, it fell after that. Seinfeld is still GOAT

Very very entertaining. A solid 7/10 from me.

David Schwimmer (Ross Geller) is probably the funniest throughout the series. He's not the god of one liners like Chandler but he acts really really good throughout the series and his goofiness coupled with the unforgiving situations he always falls a prey to, makes it very entertaining.

Mathew Perry (Chandler Bing) needs no introduction. The God of one liners. But he becomes consistently less funny after he marries Monica.

The rest of the cast is equally good.

Joey is still my favourite. I can relate to him in a lot of ways. He's immature but ambitious.
