My top 10 favorite friends episodes of all time

Friends is the show that I can watch over and over again

Friends is one of the best sitcoms of all time. I started watching this show when I was way to young; Before Netflix days, I watched Friends on my parents DVD box sets. (90’s baby things)

This is the show I can watch a million times over, and never be tired of. Each of the characters is relatable in their own quirky ways!
