In what will probably comes as a shock to your average teenager but once upon a time we had to wait a week at a time to see our favourite shows. Content binges only existed once a show had finished and you’d waited months for the box set release. In the mid 90s Friday night on Channel 4 was the comedy king and the jewel in its crown was a show we’d all come to see as an extended member of the family, that show was of course smash hit US comedy Friends.
However in the era of snack-able content and on demand, the premier pushers of series bingeing now also has Friends! In the mid-00s you could easily over indulge on Friends simply by sticking on E4 where re-runs came by the truck load.
As you can imagine the Twittersphere has been going into overdrive so we could a mooch around to see how people have been enjoying having all 10 series of their favourite sitcom on Netflix.
People well never seem to tire of the very catchy theme music…

Dear @NetflixUK, please turn off the 'Skip Intro' option from the FRIENDS series.

It has caused some people to re-adjust their favourite Friends characters list. Do you agree? We’re very much #TeamRoss!
Watching #Friends again on Netflix has made me rethink my favourite list:
1. Chandler ➖
2. Ross ⬆️1️⃣
3. Rachel ⬆️1️⃣
4. Joey ⬇️2️⃣
5. Monica ➖
6. Phoebe ➖
Sorry Joey. pic.twitter.com/hlLVVLBomn

The terrible 90s dress sense is making us all take a trip down memory lane…

Anyone who had grand disillusions of doing any work around the house in the new year has probably already sacked it off in favour of this..
