None of my friends are fans of Friends so it annoys me so much! And then I started to think about why it's such a hit. Then I came to the conclusion that it's because the characters are so different... and you never predict what will quite happen next (unless you're like me and you've seen every episode already!) Here are why they're so popular:
Chandler: Joke maker, sweet and caring, scared of commitment, loyal and faithful.
Phoebe: Bad back round, strong beliefs, flaky.
Ross: Freaks out, protective, loving, his three divorces.
Rachel: Sweet, caring, lovable, a bit of a push-over.
Joey: Hungry all the time, caring, "How you doin'?" protective.
Monica: High maintenance, loving, sweet, loud.
