After the colossal car crash of a year that was 2017, January 2018 has already got off to an excellent start with all 236 episodes of Friends becoming available on Netflix UK.
Fans have been urging the streaming service to add the beloved sitcom to its roster of TV shows for what feels like forever, so they can follow the antics of Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Chandler and Joey on demand.

In the words of Joey Tribbiani: “Happy No Year!”
Fans were, to put it mildly, ecstatic.
