8 reactions people are having after watching Friends for the first time
Netflix just released all 10 series and some are enjoying it for the first time.
Given the regularity with which Friends reruns have been on TV since the show broadcast its last episode in 2004, it’s hard to imagine there’s anyone out there who has never seen it.
But Netflix’s recent move to add all 10 seasons of the classic sitcom has opened it up to yet another new audience.
Here are eight things people have noticed while watching the show for the first time.
1. The hair is still just as iconic
So first things first... my god the hair— Daniel Faulkner (@TheDanFaulkner) January 5, 2018
2. Nipples are a feature
Watching FRIENDS on Netflix and I have questions: 1) was there no room in the wardrobe budget to purchase bras? 2) how cold were those sets?— Blake Northcott™✨ (@BlakeNorthcott) October 31, 2017
Watching Friends on Netflix and it’s basically just nipples— Bobby Renson (@UncleRBenson) January 9, 2018
3. People don’t like Ross
Watching through Friends for the first time. Ross is a monster. What is Rachel seeing in him— Bee Wakefield @#EGX2018 (@Bee_Wakefield) January 5, 2018
Watching Friends for the first time n all I can say is that Ross is an absolute turnip— ❣ Annie ❣ (@justmagica_l) January 6, 2018
4. The shoes haven’t aged well
5. The characters don’t represent their age group
There’s an episode of Friends where a group of 26 year olds are shocked that they drank 5 bottles of wine between 7 people over an entire evening and honestly that’s way more unrealistic than the massive apartment thing.— Rebecca Reid (@RebeccaCNReid) January 9, 2018
6. Phoebe doesn’t get enough support
Another observation from watching Friends through for the first time. Why do none of the friends try to help Phoebe through her grief and with her childhood traumas? It's like they don't care. Poor Phoebe.— Bee Wakefield @#EGX2018 (@Bee_Wakefield) January 6, 2018
7. Some moments will always get the same reaction

8. Some debates never change
watching Friends for the first time and Ross and Rachel were def on a break. I don’t know why people argue it was obviously a break— Clay Ingold (@ClayIngold) October 30, 2017
