Audience Reviews for Friends: Season 2

    Paul Rudd was not in this season

    Another very entertaining season, that investment depends on how much you love the characters. It develops relationships, makes funnier scenarios and that's all it really it needs to do to succeed for its audience.

    This is a great season and there's no denying that. This is probably the most iconic season with Ross and Rachel's relationship and the chemistry between the actors couldn't be better. The episodes align very well and the plot is so developed and structured. The pacing of the season is also very nice and just amazing. The characters are easily the best and the comedy in this season is top notch. The ending could have been better, Richard and Monica breaking up was a bit of a bummer though. Great season!!!

    The best show ever I love it

    Friends Season 2's main creative story is Ross and Rachel's new relationship. It is artificially stretched out by having us wait for Ross and Rachel even though we know it's coming. We get the first of Ross's girlfriends to get trampled by his love for Rachel.

    Season 2 is a near perfect season! Pretty much every episode is memorable and important to the series. Instead of a cliffhanger, it leaves us with a rather sad last episode, but a key one moving foward!

    With the start of season 2, Rachel discovers that Ross is in love with her, which is put to the test with a revealing Video.

    one of the best seasons of the serie i think
  • Jun 15, 2020
    Much better season than Season 1. It had my favourite moment of Chandler and Joey tossing for Ben, scary clowns. My full review of entire series- I am a gen z 2000s kid and have heard a lot about 'F.R.I.E.N.D.S'. Never gave it a try because it looked the most 90s show ever, and yes it is. Pandemic happened and everybody is worrying and panicking, so I said I will try to watch a sitcom to forget about all the sh!t around me. I watched friends as it had the highest ratings. God was I addicted, 236 episodes in 65 days, people have done better than me but for me this is a lot. Even when I wasn't watching the show I was laughing while playing the clips in my head. Many complain for the use of laugh-track but I see no problem with that, it is a scientific fact that if others laugh around you, you too break into laughter ( I am pretty sure this was the reason old sitcoms had those) My most laugh-out-loud moments that I felt didn't reach high internet fame were -Chandler and Joey with Ben, and Chandler says 'what kind of scary-a$s clown came to your party' -Joey going to Rachel Boss and asking why he wanted to buy Rachel's daughter -Janice showing up In all these scenes I fell from the place I was sitting in laughter I have already made so many great memories with the show, Janice showing up as she dates Ross, I screamed Ohh Myy Goooddd! in the most Janice way possible. My parents on the other room starts scream as to what happened to me. I remember a time when I was having great agony and started watching an episode and just forgot everything I was going through. It actually felt like having Friends in Real life. I knew everything, every secret, every little detail that another friend knows. Loved every stereotypical roles they had, Joey getting dumber as seasons progress was a wise decision as Dumb Joey had more comedic moments that will stick with me forever. Early Jo felt a weaker version of Chandler's Sarcasm. Phoebe being the different friend was fantastic as she brought something different, idk what but she's different and love these kind of characters I relate to mostly Chandler's comedy Ross's geekness Joey's idiotic remarks ( I still regret some of my idiotic moments) Definitely ganna rewatch the show in future and ganna watch it with more time so I live in the friends world for longer One the best time passing shows I have ever seen. All I know is that I will always have Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Dr.Drake Ramoray and Ragina Phalange to make to laugh.

    I enjoyed this season of Friends! I liked the episode where Ross and Russ meets! Chandler, of course, was the funniest one as well! Definitely love this show!
