Friends is an excellent tv show. All of the actors are excellent!People are saying they don’t understand it, which confuses me. It’s great entertainment! Friends are talking and living their life, and you see what goes on. It’s going to be hell when it is finally over! The writers are the best I have seen. How could it be a horrible show when actresses such as Jennifer Aniston have won Golden Globes because of her work in it. No one who has watched this show once can say they did not laugh their ass off at least once during the 30 minute period!
The first season was shot on Stage 5 at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California. NBC executives had worried that the coffee house setting was too hip and asked for the series to be set in a diner, but eventually consented to the coffee house concept. The opening title sequence was filmed in a fountain at the Warner Bros. Ranch at 4:00 am, while it was particularly cold for a Burbank morning. At the beginning of the second season, production moved to the larger Stage 24, which was renamed “The Friends Stage” after the series finale. Filming for the series began during the summer (June, July, and August in the US) of 1994 in front of a live audience, who were given a summary of the series to familiarize themselves with the six main characters; a hired comedian entertained the studio audience between takes. Each 22-minute episode took six hours to film—twice the length of most sitcom tapings—mainly due to the several retakes and rewrites of the script.
During production of the pilot, NBC requested that the script be changed to feature one dominant storyline and several minor ones, but the writers refused, wanting to keep three storylines of equal weight. NBC thought the cast was too young and pushed for an older character who could give the young adults advice. Crane and Kauffman were forced to comply and wrote a draft of an early episode that featured “Pat the Cop.” Crane found the storyline to be terrible, and Kauffman joked, “You know the kids book, Pat the Bunny? We had Pat the Cop.” NBC eventually relented and dropped the idea.

Chloë was her best friend. I moved to California, made friends (= became friends with people), and started dating.
Chicago Sun-Times’ Ginny Holbert found Joey and Rachel’s characteristics to be underdeveloped, while Richmond commended the cast as a “likeable, youth ensemble” with “good chemistry.” Robert Bianco of USA Today was complimentary of Schwimmer, calling him “terrific.” He also praised the female leads, but was concerned that Perry’s role as Chandler was “undefined” and that LeBlanc was “relying too much on the same brain-dead stud routine that was already tired the last two times he tried it.” The authors of Friends Like Us: The Unofficial Guide to Friends thought that the cast was “trying just a little too hard”, in particular Perry and Schwimmer.

Following the series finale, rumors began to emerge of a Friends film, although all were proven untrue. Rumors of a film reemerged after the release of the Sex and the City film in 2008, which proved to be a success at the box office. The Daily Telegraph reported in July 2008 that the main cast members had agreed to star in the project, and that filming was going to start within the next 18 months. When asked about the film, Kudrow said that she was unaware of the talks, but expressed interest in the idea. The director of publicity for Warner Bros., Jayne Trotman, said there was “no truth in the story”, and Perry’s spokeswoman added that “nothing is happening in this regard, so the rumor is false.” Kudrow and Cox told the Associated Press in January 2010 that they had never been approached by Crane and Kauffman to make a film version of the series.
