In most cases, ten seasons of a series is plenty, but in the case of Friends, fans wish it would have gone on and on. No matter how many times you have seen the same episode, you can always watch it again, and it is always funny. Friends has managed to capture the hearts of such a large fanbase; it really seems no other series will live up to it for one reason or another. In fact, there are several reasons why Friends has continued success long after it has finished airing, where most other shows just slowly faded away after their run on TV, even if they were successful. Check out eight reasons Friends will outlive all other sitcoms!
Maybe the real honor and recognition should go to the writers of Friends, who clearly had immense skill. They obviously knew exactly how to write each character for each actor, not too mention create memorable episodes each and every time. One of the highlights against many other sitcoms was how relatable it all was. It showed true love blossoming between friends, and the struggles of real life, which never goes as expected, or to plan but somehow you make it work.
