Critic Reviews for Friends Season 4

Like The Nanny, Friends trades on regular Do It jokes; unlike The Nanny, they're funny and non-creepy.

Season four of Friends is perfection, as Chandler would say.

Season 4's other main arc involves Ross marrying Emily (Helen Baxendale), an entirely forgettable character who didn't make much of an impression when it comes to the show's legacy.

Audience Reviews for Friends: Season 4

    The best season of friends. Has my favourite friends storyline of Ross and Emily(love how they made Rachel & Ross), The boys getting the apartment, Phoebe's Triplets. The start of Chandler and Monica 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.

    Phoebe was hilarious! The last episode of this was surprising! For new viewers out there, you better watch it to find out what I mean by surprising!

    From a filthy girlfriends apartment to Ross calling his soon to be wife Rachel at the alter this season was terrible. I have a hard time watching most of the episodes in this season. Rachel acting line a preen trying to impress a guy she meets at her work was real hard to watch. It was almost like the writers and producers hit a brick wall and couldn't come up with any witty fun ideas for this amazing cast to perform. Glad they got better the next year.

    Where to begin! The actors take their roles and go the extra mile by making this season unforgettable. Introducing new problems, making one liners memorable and somehow capturing the magic that made the first seasons to dazzling. This season makes history, managing to make those 22 minutes unforgettable.

    Season 4 of Friends is a slight disappointment when compared to its second and third season. While definately not without its funny moments, some questionable plot choices strip the overall season down, though I will say the ending with the two-parter is fantastic. Overall the chemistry between the characters is as good as anywhere here, and with its signature Friends humor present throughout season 4 is another success

    COMO CONSEGUE SER TÃO BOM?

    A quarta temporada de "Friends" atinge uma marca sólida com outra rodada de piadas maravilhosas e envolventes, de uma atuação brilhante do elenco e de alguns episódios dramáticos sólidos, como "The One With the Embryos" e "The One With Ross's Wedding Part Two".
