A decade and a half after the final episode aired on television, it is still difficult to escape from the allure of the 90s and early-2000s sitcom Friends. Thanks to the almost endless stream of repeats on free-to-air networks, even though I was too young to watch it growing up, today I can appreciate the clever writing, memorable characters and many phrases which are still relevant in pop culture today. One thing which has always appealed to me is its approach to comedy, particularly those delivered through the characters represented by Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry. But if you need something to tide you over until the long-hoped-for reunion episode, which may or may not happen, this may be the best option.
