The portrait of life in New York is idilic and impossible, but that's television. It's better than reality. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

While Friends' first two seasons were certainly popular, it was the show's third season that really solidified its legacy

Jun 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Narrowing down season three's best episodes is seriously hard. This is the season that brought us: "We were on a break!" but also actually kind of broke our hearts a bit.

The main action though, is all Ross and Rachel. She still loves him, he's dating sex-mad (and soon-to-be bald) Bonnie, and by the end of it, Ross faces a cliff-hanger choice between two women.

Audience Reviews for Friends: Season 3

  • Jun 15, 2020
    One of my favourite season, 'The one where no one is ready' is one the best made TV episode. 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.

    Awesome season! Got to see them play football, which was definitely funny seeing them play! Of course, Joey bringing the chick and Chandler bringing the duck to their apartment! Definitely the funniest season!

    One our favorite seasons. The Thanksgiving episode was awesome this season and actually the best of all of them. Just a great season.

    Season three of Friends is when the show really began to take shape. The humor lightens, the story settles down, and the hairstyles start to look better. While the season introduces new characters and story lines, it manages to keep a hold of the original six's lives. We are introduced to the show of the century, slowly making itself into the best show on TV.

    Season 3 is another improvement over the second with episodes like "The One Where no one's Ready" and "The One with the Football" being some of the best sitcom episodes of all time and "The One The Morning After" Executing it's relationship drama expertfully with a very realistic and emotionally charged breakup feeling very believable thanks to some terrific acting. Season 3 is the very best season of Friends and The one where no one's ready remains my favorite Friends episode.

    Ya tenia que hacerlo esta es la mejor temporada DE TODAS tenia que ponerle lo maximo, es entretenimiento, comedia, alegria, rabia. Alguien una vez dijo que las peliculas, las series etc. no tiene porque hacerte sentir bien. "Tienen que hacerte sentir y punto".

    Estuvo bien hubo varios episodios con muchas buenas partes pero en algunos minutos te resultaba pesado

    Ross and Rachel's relationship is writen and produced amazingly. But the relationship between Chandler and Janis is handled with a really badly.
  • Jul 16, 2019
    Still hilarious with more focus on Ross and Rachel. Characters are all great
