Friends: Every Season Ranked Worst To Best

Which season of this iconic sitcom takes the cake?


These days, there are very few shows which are as beloved and re-watched as Friends. With its legions of fans and timelessness, it seems as though this sit com is getting bigger and more popular with every passing year, despite the fact that it finished up sixteen years ago.

Friends premiered in 1994 and had its final episode in 2004, and over its ten seasons fans watched in complete fascination as Rachel, Ross, Chandler, Monica, Joey and Phoebe navigated their way through life with hilarious, awkward and touching results.

Ross and Rachel's relationship remains one of the biggest "Will-they-won't-they" stories on television; Chandler and Monica's evolution into one of TV's best couples is constantly entertaining; and the slew of unforgettable guest characters and sub-plots mean Friends is a show with a lot to love that is always funny and full of relatable, moving content.

However, it's not quite a perfect show. In fact, it's far from it. Like all shows, there are some blips which are hard to ignore, such as bad character development, terrible side plots, poor jokes and frustrating conflicts.

All the seasons are funny, sure, but some are lacking the narrative consistency of others in the show's run.
