'Friends' is one of the world's favorite sitcoms, but it's been off the air for a long time now and it actually aired for the first time nearly 24 years ago! Netflix recently launched the show on its service in the UK, and many young people are just watching it for the first time.
So first things first... my god the hair

Many people have been making snap judgements on the characters.
Watching Friends for the first time ever. Like Chandler and Rachel, Hate Ross, Joey creeps me out, Phoebe's fun in a scary way. And why does everyone mock Monica for trying to keep a clean, organized home?

And some are finally getting a little more love!
no offence but Monica Geller deserves Rachel Green level appreciation and attention. pic.twitter.com/KbBKF9BIhR

Oh and there's lots of hate for Ross.
Watching through Friends for the first time. Ross is a monster. What is Rachel seeing in him

I'm watching Friends all the way through for the first time and Ross is an absolute ass. WHY DO PEOPLE LIKE HIM?

The whole Ross/Rachel love story does go on for a really long time.
I'm watching friends for the first time and for fucks sake can we just end the Ross/Rachel thing either way? Even when he's getting married to someone else we gotta do it?

People are loving those retro 90s outfits though!

Some pointed out the slightly unrealistic elements of the show.
There’s an episode of Friends where a group of 26 year olds are shocked that they drank 5 bottles of wine between 7 people over an entire evening and honestly that’s way more unrealistic than the massive apartment thing.

While others were just there to clap along to the theme music!
Why, when I’m watching Friends, does Netflix ask if I’d like to ‘Skip the intro’? Erm, no I want to sing along and do the clap to the intro like the melt I am??

All-in-all, this tweet sums up many people's views (and ours!).
I've been binge watching Friends and am still convinced that there will never be a better sitcom produced in my lifetime
