Critic Reviews for Friends Season 9

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

By virtue of the show's duration, Ross, Rachel, Joey, Phoebe, Chandler and Monica have worn out their comic welcome; nothing they do surprises, shocks or excites auds like it used to.

Friends has represented narrative of the highest quality that has distinguished itself as a great way to make television. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Friends always had a solid end to its seasons, but Joey and Rachel teetering on the edge of a relationship is one that we would all probably rather forget.

Jun 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Season nine's problem was its relationships.

Jun 27, 2018 | Full Review…

The writers finally reached the point where they apparently had tackled all the possible road blocks to Ross and Rachel getting together, opting for a hail mary of a story arc in which Rachel falls in love with Joey. No, Friends. No. Bad Friends.

    Its good because we are familiar with the show, these guys are our friends...but this season has no epic episode...but the moment that Janice met Chandler in the fertility clinic.

    Not a fan of Rachel-Joey no this season isn't for you (and me) A bit less of my favourite friend Chandler Love the Lottery 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.

    This tv season is perfect, exactly like every other season. Critics these days...

    While nowhere near bad I think we can agree that this is the weakest Friends Season of all. It was just riddled with relationships and too much is never good the season also loses points at the end for that horrible Rachel falling in love with Joey thing it's just... I don't know but to me watching them kiss I just felt so uncomfortable it was like watching incest. And the finale is the weakest Friends finale of all time. However as I said before it isn't bad, it can be really funny at times Phoebe is phenomenal and the rest of the main cast do an excellent job as usual.

    I would have loved seeing more of Ross and Rachel after reuniting.
  • Sep 12, 2019
    Excellent as always!

    The show, after eight season, ran out of steam in a big way.
