I just started watching the show Friends and I must say it is definitely one of the best sitcoms of all time. The constant jokes, the memorable characters, and the great episodes in just this season alone were all a sign of great things to come in future seasons of Friends. Whenever you have the chance, you should really think about picking this season up.
