Critic Reviews for Friends: Season 9

Audience Reviews for Friends: Season 9

  • Apr 30, 2022
    Season 9 had a rough start and a tiny bit of a rough end, but mid way is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. Ross is amazing in this season because of his relationship with Rachel and Emma. Rachel on the other hand gets annoying like usual because of how she's being rude to Ross and Emma by going out to bars and parties as a mom. The comedy is great and I loved the Thanksgiving episode this year. The season finale was also amazing and Mike was awesome in it, the only downside is Rachel and Joey getting together which actually gives us some funny scenes in the future.

    Most brilliantly written show ever. Geniuses. Never found anything that can dare to come close

    When I think of this season one word comes to mind, forgettable. Ross and Rachel getting back together is SO stretched out because they love each other, have a kid so ya know its too complicated. Monica and Chandler choosing to adopt was a great episode and it makes Monica's story come full circle. Lastly, so sorry but...JOEY AND RACHEL SHOULD NOT BE A THING!

    The season started off strong, but "The One in Barbados" is probably the worst final episode of a season. The awkward relationship between Joey and Rachael is not as great as the show intended, because as far as romance come the two have little on-screen chemistry. The love triangle between Ross, Joey, and Charlie also seemed really forced, so it barley had any impact. The season did benefit from the parenting relationship between Ross and Rachel and the boundaries that have to be made. It also benefitted from the story-line of Monica and Chandler trying to have a baby as well as Paul Rudd becoming a reoccurring character! This season is not as good as the rest, but still enjoyable!

    Friends is the best tv series I have ever seen, thanks to six friends for all the jokes and happiness they give us, give me.

    One of the best comedy series made. Still holds up today.
  • Nov 18, 2020
    The 9th season of Friends is my favorite, with the birth of Emma and the introduction of Mike, the series takes a new turn.

    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 the best season but is very good too

    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.
