The TV show FRIENDS has had a cultural impact throughout the years. Originally the show generated average reviews and NBC almost chose not to even air the pilot episode because the show was deemed “not believable” in audience testing and viewers claimed the show “played it safe.” However, the fact that it “played it safe” is one of the reasons audiences grew to love the show. 20 year olds enjoyed the fact that the show addressed both work and relationship struggles among the characters and their jobs weren’t anything special; Rachel worked as a waitress, Joey was a struggling actor, Ross was a museum tour guide, etc. The jobs were all obtainable by viewers.
- A state of mind
- A life that goes well for the person leading it
