Review

The haircuts might be dated and the technology is downright ancient (no smartphones or social media), but the humour of this American sitcom is still relevant today and has attracted whole new generations of fans over the years.

It’s hard to imagine there’s anyone who hasn’t seen it before, but here’s a chance to acquaint (or reacquaint) yourself with Monica, Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe in the 1995 pilot episode – The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate. The friends are in Central Perk consoling Ross (David Schwimmer) whose wife has left him for another woman when Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) walks in wearing a sopping wet wedding dress.

Summary

The first-ever episode of the comedy, in which Rachel arrives at the local cafe after jilting her fiance at the altar. Chandler and Joey encourage Ross to enjoy bachelorhood when his lesbian wife walks out on him, while Phoebe supports herself playing guitar in the subway. Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry and Lisa Kudrow star.
