"Friends" is rightly rated among television's all-time best sitcoms. You feel invested, like you're part of the group.
But "Friends" re-runs are on TV way too much.
TBS airs 12 episodes of "Friends" daily.
Nick at Nite airs 10 episodes of "Friends" nightly.
That's 22 episodes of "Friends" -- 11 hours -- on TV every single day. The times never overlap. You can watch all 22 episodes.
There was a total of 236 episodes.
So, in theory, you can watch the entire run of "Friends" in 11 days. Sadly, I bet I have. (Late night on "Nick at Nite" = addictive for us insomniacs.)
It's saturation. "Friends" is good. But not that good.
My favorite episode of "Friends" involves a guest spot from Brad Pitt and the high-school rumor than Rachel had both male and female sex organs. “The hermaphrodite cheerleader from Long Island.” (See below.)
