Friends: Season 1 Photos
Tv Season Info
Friends isn't a sitcom. It's a soapcom, a soap opera masquerading as a situation comedy.
The show's saving grace is that as the weeks go by, the characters begin to grow on you. That has more to do with the actors' animation than it does with the rimshot writing.
It's a very strong cast...Schwimmer and Cox are the pick of the litter.
NBC's new sitcom "Friends" comes across like a 30-minute commercial for Dockers or Ikea or light beer, except it's smuttier.
What draws me back to Friends again and again are the characters themselves, and how they build, as you say, from those archetypes to something potentially more fleshed-out.
