WHY “FRIENDS” NEVER LEAVE

Writing a sitcom that all generations love

EASY

Friends is an easy-to-watch series, and that is one of the things that makes it so popular. It perfectly understands how sitcoms work and, most importantly, why people like sitcoms.

IDEALISM

The series aired before the internet explosion and the popularization of social networks. The main characters held existentialist conversations about the fear of future or maturity but from a very simple and innocent point of view. And that innocence is what catches and moves us. Unlike other current sitcoms such as Girls or Fleabag, Friends doesn’t have a dark tone nor intends to delve too deeply into existentialist issues. The series reminds us of an age where everything was, or at least seemed, easier.
