Don't get me wrong, Thanksgiving equals so much more than watching hilarious old Thanksgiving themed episodes of Friends but part of the holiday for those who love the show as much as I do does mean loading up on how "they"spent their Thanksgivings through the years. Football matches, Rachel's "meat" trifle and the time Monica and Ross shouted out most of their childhood secrets to their parents in a matter of minutes cracks me up no matter how many times I've watched it. "Dad, the mailman you had fired didn't steal your Playboy's, Ross did"….. They were all so damn funny it's hard not to think of them during this time of year.
In any event, I came across the initial list of Friends characters as they were first described for the pilot. It's hard to believe that anyone other than Courtney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, David Swimmer or Matt Le Blanc could have played these six friends so well. This being one of my favorite sitcoms ever, at that period of your life or if you are in your twenties….which "Friend" do you to relate the most? I'd love to know.
Twelve publicity photos of Friends from 1994…some a little awkward.
