"Friends" Explained By Someone Who Has Never Seen It
They're all "friends," but also bone each other a lot?
This is Friends, which first premiered 20 years ago. Only I've never ever watched it. I've seen a lot of GIFs, though, so I'm pretty sure I know what it's about.
Now they all live together in NYC!
This is Rachel, she's the STAR of the show and also the fun, drunk friend of the group.
And this is Monica, the REAL star of the show, because she's insanely relatable and actually seems legit cool.
She used to be a little heavier, and she seemed even cooler then. I think we would've been friends.
She's definitely cooler than Rachel's hair, is all I'm saying.
I want to call this girl "Smelly Cat," but I looked it up and her name is Phoebe. She's a subway singer for a living.
These three ~ladies~ live together.
Then there are these three dudes, and they're roommates too!
This is Joey. He's the male STAR of the show and makes women feel extremely uncomfortable, but in a funny way (?).
He's also one of those guys who talks about sex a lot, and never actually gets laid.
This is one of the main characters, but I don't know his name, so we'll call him Manic Pixie Dream Boy.
Joey is secretly in love with Manic Pixie Dream Boy.
Which is too bad for Joey, because Manic Pixie Dream Boy is actually boning Monica.
This is Mark (?), and he's the friend everyone laughs at because he literally doesn't know how to be a person.
So, yeah, a lot of people really fucking love this show.
And I can see why. I mean, there's a whole running plot about pizza.
It's basically all they think about, and honestly, I can relate.
And apparently Friends is not just a fun show about loving pizza. There are also some crying things that happen.
Rachel and her awesome hair might also be in love with Manic Pixie Dream Boy, because he's the one who breaks everyone's heart.
Also, Mark is constantly embarrassing himself, and that's always good for a laugh.
Plus there's this wonderful courtship between Joey and Manic Pixie Dream Boy.
They even raise a family of ducklings together, which is pretty adorable.
There are some super fun feminist moments too.
And Joey lands work as a model, which MIGHT actually, finally get him laid.
It's a show about the realities of having friends, and the fact that you'll get drunk with them A LOT.
But ultimately, it's a show about friendship, and being there for someone through thick and thin.
