It seems hard to believe but it has been 20 years since Friends aired its first episode on September 22nd, 1994.
20 years ago
To be honest, I did not watch the Friends premiere back in 1994, I didn’t even watch it in 1995… I was too little for Friends but I catch up with it a few years later and became a fan.
I remember that back then finding spoilers of Friends or any Tv show was really hard to find. Even to catch up on all the earlier seasons I had to wait for reruns on cable because as hard as it is to imagine, tv shows were not available on dvd (and Tivo wasn’t a familiar friend)…
20 years later, the earlier episode of Friends might look a little old but are still really enjoyable. It does not relay on cgi or special effects, it relays on great stories and great characters.
The Pilot or The One Where it All Began , and it certainly was the one where it all began. We met our Friends in their early mid 20’s starting to live their adult live. We say a bride escaping from her wedding, a man getting divorce, a woman trying to find love… friends learning about life, love and friendship…
For 10 amazing years we saw them grow, learn about life, family, work, relationships, friendship… and they made us laugh along the way.
The Pilot was the start of this amazing journey of our Friends Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, Joey, Rachel and Ross.
Growing up watching Friends has been a pleasure and a joyful experience. It has been nice to grow up watching a show that not only made me laugh but it celebrated friendship and family.
Thank you Friends for all the laughter!
