    Do you think Friends was overrated?

    I am going to start by saying up until last year, I never saw a single episode. I actually did start to watch the show and quickly lost interest. I don't know if it is because it is out of date now or what but I don't see how it was or is considered one of the best TV shows that was on. I feel like a lot of the characters were forced and the humor was dry.

    I do understand why it had a lot of viewers. Some aspects of the show were very telling of the times but I just couldn't get in to it. Not to compare apples and oranges but I actually enjoyed How I Met Your Mother and thought it was way better than Friends was. Well... the ending sucked but the show itself I did like.

    Hard to say, my memories of the show are tied to a young age where every new thing was exciting. Wish I had the ability to critically analyze television back then.

    I can see arguments for it being overrated just based on how reliant it was in getting people to relate to it's likable character cast. If you didn't enjoy Ross being a nerdy archaeologist who sucked at love, Joey being a romantic jock, Chandler making a joke of everything, Phoebe being weird, etc then it would probably be an annoying experience.

    In my hоnеst оpiniоn, FRIЕNDS wаs а niсе shоw, nо dоubt, but it is а mаssivеly оvеrrаtеd TV shоw. It is еxtrеmеly rеdundаnt аnd it suсks. Fоr 10 lоng sеаsоns. It dоеsn't gо аnywhеrе bеyоnd dаting, prеggеrs, mаrriаgе аnd thе infаmоus "brеаk". Thе сhаrасtеrs livе in hugе аpаrtmеnts in thе NYс (withоut hаving tо mаkе mоnеy) аnd gо оn dаtеs еvеry оthеr dаy (fоr 10 yеаrs) - thе pеrfесt аmеriсаn yоuth fаntаsy. Thе sаmе аppliеs tо HIMYM аnd 2.5 Mеn tоо - nо substаnсе in thе shоw аnd еxtrеmеly сосky fаns.
