Friends at 25: Why a sitcom from the 1990s still matters

Join Dr Simone Knox as she examines the television phenomenon, and tries to answer the question: Why is Friends still so popular?

Associate Professor of Film & Television Simone Knox, from the University of Reading, and co-author of Friends: A Reading of the Sitcom, invites you to join her to celebrate the 25th anniversary of arguably one of the most culturally important television series ever made.

‘Friends at 25… ‘ will aim to answer the burning questions: why was Monica’s apartment purple? Why was Brad Pitt’s guest performance so bad? And why is a sitcom from the 1990s still able to attract millions of viewers today?

Could we BE any more excited?!
