At this moment in time, television is without a doubt, the main form of amusement and entertainment. Television plays a significant role in the life of most Americans, including myself. Friends, my favorite television show, is one of the many shows made in the mid-nineties that featured good-looking characters in their twenties who get together to share loving, and emotionally fulfilling lives.
Friends is an American sitcom based on the lives and problems of six very different people in their mid-twenties. Rachel Green (played by Jennifer Aniston), is the popular and spoiled one who always needs everything to go her way, so she gets what she wants with her incredible ability to manipulate and trick her friends. Phoebe Buffet (played by Lisa Kudrow) is a very odd character, she lives in her own world of mysticism and spirituality. She can be decribed as a tree-hugger. Monica Geller (played by Courteney Cox Arquette), can be seen as the mother figure of the group, possessing a piercing personality. She works as a chef, and is controlling, analytical, and extremely compulsive. She cleans and orders her apartment all the time because she needs everything to be perfect. Ross (played by David Schwimmer) is Monica's brother. He is an intellectual paleontologist who is constantly looking for approval, getting involved in countless catastrophic relationships. Joe Tribiani (played by Matt Le Blanc) is sweet person, but not very smart. He is a struggling actor (because he is very untalented in the field), and does not have a successful love life because he is a womanizer. Chandler Bing (played by Matthew Perry) is a very funny character who uses comedy as a defense mechanism. He is not very macho, so he is always involved in situations that question his masculinity. He has major commitment issues. The six live in comfortable and expensive apartments located in the same building in New York City (even though they do not have successful jobs).
