Season 1

Friends has been one of the most successful shows ever and follows the lives of six friends living in New York.

There's lovable but clueless Joey Tribbiani, spoilt rich kid Rachel Green, neurotic Monica Geller, nerdy Ross Geller, offbeat Phoebe Buffay and wise-cracking Chandler Bing.

As the plot begins, Rachel has just left her fiancé Barry at the altar and moves in with her childhood best friend, Monica.

They live across the hall from Chandler and Joey and hang out with Monica's brother, Ross – who recently divorced his lesbian wife.

Our friends regularly meet at a coffee shop – Central Perk. Ross has just recently divorced his wife Carol, after she realises that she is a lesbian.

Rachel, Monica’s rich spoiled friend moves in with her after Rachel leaves her groom at the altar. Ross discovers his ex-wife is pregnant and she gives birth to a boy, named Ben, who is raised by Carol and her partner, Susan.

Chandler gets involved with Janice, who shows up repeatedly throughout the entire series. Ross reveals he had a crush on Rachel in high school and he still has feelings for her.

Throughout the season, he fails to make his feelings known to her and Chandler and Joey eventually persuade him to move on. Ross leaves for a trip to China.

While away, Chandler reveals to Rachel that Ross is in love with her.

Rachel decides that she has feelings for Ross, but when she goes to meet him at the airport, Ross returns with another woman.
