The hit TV sitcom Friends first premiered back in 1994. After ten series and 236 episodes, the show aired its final show in 2004. In the years between then and now, Friends has never ceased to gain popularity. A recent study showed that the popular American sitcom is now highly popular among teenagers around the world. It’s funny to think that the latest generation of Friends fans were not even born when the show finished! Yet, it just goes to show what a classic, versatile series it was.
