It’s been 25 years since Friends first aired in September 22, 1994. The show, set in early 90s New York City, finds relevance even today. The characters Rachel, Ross, Joey, Phoebe, Chandler and Monica are hugely popular in the pop culture space. However, when the show first aired, the cast did not expect it to be renewed for even a second season, let alone ten seasons. “Everyone was kind of keeping their distance and not really investing too much emotionally,” David Schwimmer, who plays Ross Geller in the show, later recalled on Oprah’s talk show.Each of the five main characters of Friends are iconic in their own way.

Joey is also the guy who keeps the group amazed with how he’s living life and shocks them, more often than not.Chandler Bing: The Awkward OneChandler is the one who makes jokes when he’s uncomfortable.
