People of any age group can watch it and will surely love it and make it a part of their daily routine. It shows the story of six friends in the 10 years of their lifespan. This is the show, that people should watch at least once, there are a plenty of reasons for it. First of all it is a evergreen mood refreshing show, the comedy, the timings, the way they all speak are at their best and just make your day. As told above, it is a story of six friends – Ross Geller, Rachel Green, Joey Tribbiani, Monica Geller, Chandler Bing and Phoebe Buffay.

Rachel Green, a sheltered but friendly woman, flees her wedding day and wealthy yet unfulfilling life and finds childhood friend Monica Geller, a tightly wound but caring chef. Rachel becomes a waitress at West Village coffee house Central Perk after she moves into Monica’s apartment above Central Perk and joins Monica’s group of single friends in their mid-20s: previous roommate Phoebe Buffay, an eccentric masseuse and musician; neighbor Joey Tribbiani, a dim-witted yet loyal struggling actor and womanizer; Joey’s roommate Chandler Bing, a sarcastic, self-deprecating IT manager; and Monica’s older brother and Chandler’s college roommate Ross Geller, a sweet-natured but insecure paleontologist.
