Friends, The US Office, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine are three incredibly popular TV shows even now, 15 years after Monica and Chandler moved out of the city and into Westchester, and six years after the documentary surrounding Dunder Mifflin Scranton was finally released to adoring fans.
None of these were ever on the air at the same time, but they passed on the torch to each other with Friends ruling the 90s, The Office the 2000s, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine the 2010s. Each series is built around a cast of wonderful characters that audiences fell in love with, and made a genuine connection with.
Despite being a famous actor, Joey is possibly the most relatable of the Friends gang, thanks to his love of doing nothing more than sitting back in his comfy chair with a pizza and the TV remote. In Scranton, Jim's pursuit of Pam against all odds won audiences over almost immediately, and his constant breaking of the fourth wall is a consistent highlight of the show. In a similar fashion, Jake's budding romance with Amy Santiago made fans fall in love with him, on top of his goofy personality and bromance with Charles.
