Though admittedly formulaic[[note]]The Pilot bears ''many'' resemblances to the ''Series/{{Cheers}}'' pilot[[/note]], ''Friends'' featured a top-notch cast and, at least in the early seasons, some legitimately outstanding writing. The Ross-and-Rachel relationship easily ranks as the most drawn-out, convoluted WillTheyOrWontThey plot in sitcom history. Interestingly, they became a couple early on, only to break up on account of Ross' cheating.[[note]][[RunningGag They were]] [[InsistentTerminology on a break!]][[/note]] Despite this, the characters managed to reconcile and even [[RelationshipRevolvingDoor conceive a child]] without officially getting 'back together.'

To this day, ''Friends'' is still ranked with ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' as perhaps the most defining TV shows of TheNineties. It also spawned a (short lived) [[{{Series/Joey}} spinoff series]].

While it [[CriticalDissonance never garnered the critical acclaim of competing shows]] like ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' or even ''Series/{{Frasier}}'', it was a ''giant'' success in its day (the stars graced the covers of a dozen entertainment and gossip magazines every week), and accordingly one of the [[ItsPopularNowItSucks more polarizing shows of recent memory]]. "''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' or ''Friends''?" became a kind of shibboleth used to determine one's television street cred.
