The premise of the story is 6 twenty somethings friends, living, working and looking for love in ‘’’New York City’’’. The 6 are a very close knit group, who support each other through good times and bad, laugh, love, make mistakes, criticise, praise, hang out, work and play. Much of this first series follows the unrequited love of Ross for Rachel, and his repeated bungled attempts to express it.
Created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman

The one where underdog gets away
Monica and Ross have thanksgiving together this year. There friends end up joining them. The day is going well until there is a runaway float and the gang rush out to get a better view and end up locked out of Monicas apartment and the dinner burns.
I like the fact that Joeys family don't want him at thanksgiving because they think that he has VD because he was on a medical health poster.Also that they end up having sandwiches for thanksgiving HAHA funny episode.
The one with the monkey
It's time for the new year to roll in and everyone makes a pact to bring no dates to the new years eve party but Ross is the only one who sticks to it. Ross adopts a monkey called marcell.
Aww loving the monkey t is too cute and there are many funny monkey moments. Joey kissing Chandler at midnight had me in stiches.
The one with Mrs Bing
Chandlers mum, popular author, Nora Tyler Bing comes into town. She and Ross end up kissing and Chandler finds out. Phoebe and Monica whistle at a hot guy in the street and he ends up in coma.
Im sure that everyone can relate to the embarrassing parent story but an embarrassing parent who kisses one of your best friends..... hilarity ensues. Its funny how Monica and Phoebe end up fighting over coma guy and when he wakes up he isn't intrested in either.
The one with the dozen lasagnes
Paulo and Rachel are going on a romantic weekend away but before they go Phoebe gives him a massage and he comes onto her.
Not the funniest episode but still had a few good points.
The one with the boobies
Rachel is innocently walking along after being in the shower when Chandler appears and gets an eyeful. So Rachel decides that she is entitled to a viewing of Chandlers naughty bits so she tries to catch him unawares.
My favorite part of the episode is when Rachel thinks that Chandler is in the shower so she decides to surprise him by having a sneak peek at his goodies but it turns out to be Joeys dad, an image nobody would be able to get out of their minds.
The one with the candy hearts
Joey drags Chandler along on a double blind date and they find out that Chandlers mystery date is his ex Janice. After becoming extremely drunk they end up waking up together the next morning much to Chandlers dismay.
My fave parts of this episode are when the girls decide to do a cleansing ritual and end up needing to call out some firemen and end up getting lucky with them or so they think.
The one with the stoned guy
Phoebes friend needs to hire a cook for his restaurant and Monica has an audition at her flat but he turns up stoned.
I love this episode, the stoned guy is hilarious.
The one with the two parts, Part 1
Ross accompanies Carol and Susan to lamaze class but Carol doesn't go and ross ends up playing her part. Ross and Chandler go to a bar and meet Phoebes twin sister Ursula and Joey wants to go out with her.
This is a good episode but not the best. I love Joeys reaction to Ursula acting as if she is the hottest girl he has ever seen though he has known Phoebe for a long time and didn't have any attraction to her.
I am a big fan of friends and I always will be. Though I think that if they had added part two of episode 16 onto the dvd it would have been better. A fabulous series and the actors always work really well togethger.
