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.

We needed a venue that was more or less central to people travelling from different parts of the UK. The service has been very helpful & flexible and the team was very courteous. There was a good choice of fish, meat and vegetarian options, laid-out in an attractive manner. I will recommend you to others as an excellent venue Chris Reedyk (UK Polarity Therapy Association)

More changes occurred to the series’ storylines during the casting process. The writers found that they had to adjust the characters they had written to suit the actors, and the discovery process of the characters occurred throughout the first season. Kauffman acknowledged that Joey’s character became “this whole new being”, and that “it wasn’t until we did the first Thanksgiving episode that we realized how much fun Monica’s neuroses are.”

He has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in the past couple of months and is very frightened about his future. He really looks forward to my visits and says that he can find himself relaxing in my company and his speech improves. He is also able to open up and really tell me his frustrations when trying to do simple things like trying to remember how to turn on the shower etc. I find that his wife is struggling too it is a new experience for her too. So any information to allow me to help them both would be good. by Lynne Masters I will spread the word and try to get family and friends to join 🙂 by Amber Morley We will run a Pharmacy Awareness Day on dementia with our local champion, Alan.

But why, instead of consulting us, do you not consult our friend Socrates about the education of the youths? The Indians gathered about in wonder as Jim knelt beside his friend. Here is something about ‘friend,’ and another word I can’t make out. We can weather any storm if we have a friend to lean on, and I’m that, God knows. Does he come under the recommendatory ‘firman’ of any dear friend or acquaintance? What war could ravish, commerce could bestow, And he returned a friend, who came a foe. I shall always be the friend of men, and keep near their dwellings. Boss, that friend of yours has a vocabulary that’d turn a mule into a race horse. I vowed the captain was no friend of mine; yet I believed him honest. “All this is madness,” cries a sober sage: But who, my friend, has reason in his rage?
Everybody absolutely adored The Light and the service we received was second to none. Great infrastructure, great support, beautiful space. Made our company meeting feel very special, we shall certainly be back again. Sarah Harries (Double Negative) www.socializetime.com/
The tenth season closes several long-running storylines. Charlie breaks up with Ross to get back together with her ex-boyfriend. Joey and Rachel try to contend with Ross’ feelings about them being together and decide it would be best to remain friends. Phoebe and Mike get married mid-season outside the Central Perk coffee house. Monica and Chandler apply to adopt a child and are chosen by Erica (Anna Faris). In the series finale, Erica gives birth to twins, to the surprise of Monica and Chandler — a boy, Jack (after Monica’s father), and a girl, Erica (named after the birth mother). Monica and Chandler prepare to move to the suburbs, and Joey becomes upset with the changes in his life. Rachel gets fired from her job and accepts a new offer in Paris, but Ross, realizing he loves her, chases after her. Rachel realizes she loves him, too, and cancels her flight to Paris, agreeing to stay with him. The series ends with all the friends plus Monica and Chandler’s new babies leaving the apartment, heading to Central Perk for a final cup of coffee. The finale dialogue used in this series is by Chandler, making a joke for the last time. The camera’s last view is of all of the character’s keys to the apartment on the counter table, finishing with a shot of the apartment door.

As the series progressed, reviews became more positive, and Friends became one of the most popular sitcoms of its time. It is now often ranked among the all-time best TV shows. Critics commended the series as having consistently sharp writing and chemistry between the main actors. Noel Holston of Newsday, who had dismissed the pilot as a “so-so Seinfeld wannabe” in 1994, repudiated his earlier review after rewatching the episode, and felt like writing an apology to the writers. Heather Havrilesky of Salon.com thought that the series “hit its stride” in the second season. Havrilesky found the character-specific jokes and situations “could reliably make you laugh out loud a few times each episode”, and the quality of writing allowed the stories to be “original and innovative.” Bill Carter of The New York Times called the eighth season a “truly stunning comeback.” Carter found that by “generating new hot storylines and high-decibel laughs”, the series made its way “back into the hearts of its fans.” However, Liane Bonin of Entertainment Weekly felt that the direction of the ninth season was a “disappointing buzzkill”, criticizing it for the non-stop celebrity guest spots and going into jump the shark territory. Although disappointed with the season, Bonin noted that “the writing still sharp.” Havrilesky thought that the tenth season was “alarmingly awful, far worse than you would ever imagine a show that was once so good could be.” Friends was featured on Time’s list of “The 100 Best TV Shows of All-Time”, saying, “the well-hidden secret of this show was that it called itself Friends, and was really about family.”

After seeing every episode of this much loved sitcom i much say that the writers and cast have succeeded in making something that is not only humorous, but also forces you to care about the characters and what happens to them in the future. All six of the friends bring characteristics to the show that make the viewer feel like they know them. Each one of the characters is funny in their own way and due to the shows fast pace there is never a boring episode.I will say however that towards the end Friends did start to lose what it had but, never the less was still very good. I started watching the show at series five but from then on i was hooked.I recommend this sitcom to anyone and everyone.
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.

The Central Perk coffee house, one of the principal settings of the series, has inspired various imitations worldwide. In 2006, Iranian businessman Mojtaba Asadian started a Central Perk franchise, registering the name in 32 countries. The decor of the coffee houses is inspired by Friends, featuring replica couches, counters, neon signage and bricks. The coffee houses also contain paintings of the various characters from the series, and televisions playing Friends episodes. James Michael Tyler, who plays the Central Perk manager in the series, Gunther, attended the grand opening of the Dubai cafe, where he worked as a waiter. Central Perk was rebuilt as part of a museum exhibit at Warner Bros. Studios, and was shown on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in October 2008. Jennifer Aniston revisited the set for the first time since the series finale in 2004. From September 24 to October 7, 2009, a Central Perk replica was based at Broadwick Street, Soho, London. The coffee house sold real coffee to customers and featured a display of Friends memorabilia and props, such as the Geller Cup from the season three episode “The One with the Football.” In Beijing, business owner Du Xin opened a coffee shop named Central Perk in March 2010. In India, there are five Friends themed cafes, located in Chandigarh (named Central Perk), Kolkata (named F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Cafe) which features many icons from the original T.V. series for example, Chandler and Joey’s ugly dog statue, the orange sofa, the purple door of Monica and Rachel’s apartment and Phoebe’s pink bicycle. The other three cafes are located in Delhi, Gurugram and Pune. There are two Friends themed cafes in Pakistan as well. One in Lahore known as “Friends Cafe” and the other in Peshawar called “Central Perk”. Both of those cafes have an iconic couch,a guitar and foosball table,quotes from the show on the walls and even episode reruns on a projector. They’re also planning to have their own Gunther at the bar.
