The 9 year old sitcom really starts to show its age by this point. Onto it's ninth season we see old themes repeat themselves and ideas begin to get a little dull. Still good, but not as good as it used to be.
Friends always was one of the greatest shows on tv. It was funny, heartwarming, and kept you hooked. Seasons 9 and 10 saw a decrease in overall quality but remained great and quite watchable. ONE OF THE BEST COMEDIES OF ALL TIME :).
