As the amount of traffic we got to the Friends opening sequence without any music last week proved, Friends most definitely was one of the most iconic and deeply loved shows of the 90s/00s.
As everyone knows, many of the scenes took place in Central Perk , where the Friends would sit on their favourite couch and drink their coffee and talk about their lives and all the hilarious situations they were getting into. Maybe watch Phoebe play Smelly Cat a couple of times too.
However, one of the big questions that people always used to ask was how the hell they managed to get that couch every time they were in there, except for that one episode when there was another group of Friends sitting on it in the teaser.
