Well, hello, to all of the Mr. Rachels and Mrs. Rosses, a.k.a. my fellow know-it-all Friends fanatics. If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably always been a fan of the likes of Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Joey, Chandler, and Ross. But, being that the show, in its entirety, is available for your constant viewing on Netflix, things have most likely intensified. Why? Well, because you can now endlessly obsess over each episode, getting all of the subtle references and nuanced jokes that you didn’t get the first few (million) times around when you were a younger, more naïve TV watcher. (A younger, more naive person that also had a lot more things to do than sit around watching Netflix all day.) So, really, who's the winner here? (Older you, obviously.)
That said, I know you may think you know everything there is to know about our beloved show, but, when it comes down to it… Do you really? If you’re sitting there, rolling your eyes, Monica-like competitiveness flowing through your veins at full force, I have a challenge for you. Yes, we all know that almost every episode begins the same way, “The One With…” But, do you know all of the stuff that comes after? It might not be as simple as you think. Or, maybe it is. But, we won’t ever know until you take the episode title quiz, will we?
