To commemorate 15 years since Friends stopped being there for us (in prime time, anyway), we take a look back at the pilot, searching for clues to the show’s eventual runaway success.
Was this beloved sitcom a gem from the start? Is Netflix smart to spend ALL THE MONEY to secure the streaming rights? Is the show as “smutty” as The Washington Post’s original review would lead us to believe?
And, most importantly, does Jeffrey still know how to do the Pepsi Summer Chill-Out?
Listen in for a trip back to 1994 and answers to all these questions and more.
if you want to deep dive into Friends, we highly recommend this series on Vulture.
