Although "Friends" may never be accused of being a particularly “deep” show, it’s a sitcom that managed to breathe a lot of life into the format. My favorite episodes from Season 1 include Chandler getting stuck in an ATM booth with supermodel Jill Goodacre, and the sudden appearance of a moody monkey! If you’re wondering about your favorites, check out the full listing of all 24 Season One episodes:
The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate The One with the Sonogram at the End The One with the Thumb The One with the George Stephanopoulos The One with the East German Laundry Detergent The One with the Butt The One with the Blackout The One Where Nana Dies Twice The One Where Underdog Gets Away The One with the Monkey The One with Mrs. Bing The One with the Dozen Lasagnas The One with the Boobies The One with the Candy Hearts The One with the Stoned Guy The One with Two Parts Part 1 The One with Two Parts Part 2 The One with All the Poker The One Where the Monkey Gets Away The One with the Evil Orthodonist The One with the Fake Monica The One with the Ick Factor The One with the Birth The One Where Rachel Finds Out
A Peek at Central Perk is an interactive map of our Friends' favorite stomping ground. You can scroll around the coffee house, click on an inanimate object and you'll be treated to some background information on them. Friends of Friends: Memorable Guest Star Moments is basically a who's who of memorable celebrities who appeared as guests on the show, including George Clooney and Noah Wyle who crossed over from ER to play…well…doctors who become potential suitors for Rachel & Monica. This feature’s a lot of fun for the Friends-faithful.
How Well Do You Know Your Friends? is a better-than-average trivia quiz that's still more than a bit slight. Instead of just plastering words onto a stoic background, this one incorporates video clips into the game. Unfortunately, there are only eight questions and any self-respecting Friends fan will find them ridiculously easy. All 24 episodes also have a preview feature that allow you to view a 30-second clip from each of them before committing. Finally, there is a trailer for the release of the second season on DVD. Start now, because there will eventually be nine of these.
