Critic Reviews for Friends Season 10

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (6)

There are plenty of one-liners and memories that will leave you cheering, laughing and crying.

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

The "Friends" soap opera ended predictably and blandly last night, with no big surprises, just two little ones -- Monica's and Chandler's twins.

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

The show never rose above its artificial, formulaic roots - characters assembled straight from the sitcom-writer's handbook, jokes delivered with mechanical predictability at the network-mandated rate of three per page.

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

The jokes and the adventures have not aged a day. It's a pure, classic comedy. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

I found myself laughing and identifying with the friends more than I had the first time. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Starting a TV show is hard. Ending one of the most beloved series of all time in a satisfactory manner? Almost impossible, yet Friends pulled it off here.

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Kauffman and Crane stick the landing with a two-part series finale that doesn't forsake the show's signature comedy for non-stop emotions-though there are plenty of emotional moments too.

Jun 27, 2018 | Full Review…

It was more than a phenomenon; it was a smart, classy show.

Jun 27, 2018 | Full Review…

[The series' scripts were] concise and top-level. [Full review in Spanish]

Mar 21, 2019 | Full Review…

Even the kiss that cemented Ross and Rachel couldn't disguise the show's larger anti-climax, a cop-out from the logical conclusions of the show's premise, conclusions it began to acknowledge only to ultimately deny their existence.

Jun 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Season ten actually gets a pretty hard time, but while the stars do sort of become caricatures, there's still so much to love about it: after all, she got off the plane.

Jun 27, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a classic, heartwarming finale that gives you what you want with just as many laughs as you could want.

Audience Reviews for Friends: Season 10

    Perfect ending for a long running TV sitcom.
  • Oct 27, 2019
    Fantastic plot and an amazing conclusion to the last season of the Emmy winner sitcom. In the end, Ross and Rachael finaly got together and Monica could live her dream of having a husband (Chandler) and kids. Phoebe got married to the man of her dreams, but Joey didn't have a happy ending. He didn't get married, didn't have kids and didn't have a successful carrier. This character did not have a conclusion of his personal plot and that could have been better. Rachel Greene is another character that could have had a better end to her plot. She chose Ross instead of following her carrier and moving to Paris. That shows how her love to Ross was blind and that represents the sexist ideology that the sitcom follows by making a character with great potential waste everything for a man.

    Just has a great way to end all of friends as a sitcom. Finally Ross and Rachel are together forever. Chandler and Monica have the first babies. Phebe's married to Paul Rudd. Joeys happy just being joey in the village.

    You know you've seen a good show when years after watching it you say something and realize a few moments later, 'Oh my God, Chandler said that exact same thing!' Moment: My mother says "If I were a girl..." and then realizes, just as Chandler did, that she is already, in fact, a girl... A few moments later I referenced the moment to friends. We laughed, looked up the scene and remembered why we loved the show so much.

    It was a perfect ending for such a long running comedy. Some may find it rushed, but there was no better way to end the show.

    So I recently finished watching Friends and I gotta say, I liked it, especially for a sitcom. I liked all the dynamics between characters and how subversive the plot could be at times, I think the characterization was phenomenal for the most part, mostly because of the cast being talented and I think the overall writing was pretty good. The show starts with a very familiar feel to it, this is mostly because this show inspired every sitcom to come out since and if you've watched any of those before this. You'll probably feel the same. The first season is pretty good, although I think it's one of the weaker seasons. I like everything to do with Rachel and Ross especially, more so than most seasons and I think Matthew Perry is at his best comedic wise here. Where this season falls short for me is in all the other characters, I never found Monica, Joey or Phoebe to be particularly interesting and they felt more like characters that were created just to fill an empty gap. This season had more of a slow sort of feel to it than later seasons which I can really appreciate and overall I'd say it was a pretty good start. Now from this point on the show has a lot of ups and downs for me, I found some seasons to be good and some to be pretty bad actually. Season 2 picks up the pace from season 1 nicely and is a great improvement over the already solid groundwork left by season 1, I found most character problems I had to go away fairly quickly here and it, surprisingly got me invested in characters like Joey, Monica, and Phoebe very quickly on. I think the comedy is at it's best in this season and I can safely say that everything done with the Rachel and Ross relationship was handled pretty perfectly with one surprisingly touching scene that you don't see done this well in other sitcoms. Now season 3 as it stands, is my favorite season. By this point, the writers seemed to fully understand what was working and what wasn't working and they manage to perfectly balance the drama and comedic aspects of the show. With one episode especially showing just how well adjusted the writers have become to these characters. So up to this point, the show has managed to improve upon each season and it's pretty great to watch. When the writers sat down to write the next season it seemed as though they had studied what the fans liked and didn't like about their last season and it was pretty great. But then for whatever reason, all of that seems to be lost after that, with the show having some seriously high notes and some seriously low notes, with a pretty inconsistent feel to it all. I think the pacing for the show took a huge drop after season 3 and characters like Ross and Rachel were written pretty poorly. What was once the heart of the show and it's main contrast now started to feel like an anchor weighing down the show bit by bit. From season 5 onwards it seems the show has found its new heart, Monica, and Chandler and for the most part it's extremely good. Courtney and Matthew have seriously great charm and charisma together on screen and their relationship felt earned and right for the show. But then for whatever reason, the show still chooses to have Ross and Rachel be a big player in everything. I found everything the show did with their relationship after season 3 too just be annoying or unfunny. Even in well written heartwarming moments between the two it just became impossible for me to become engaged because of how much the show chooses to drag the story out for so long. The show is consistent in other aspects though, Matt Le Blanc is never not funny and Matthew Perry is the same, both actors are given some of the greatest writing comedic wise and drama wise. I think some of the moments with Matthew are especially great. I think Phoebe, who is funny throughout the show wasn't given the best storylines to work with as a single character but I think they later improved massively on this during later seasons and I think Monica is an exceptionally funny character throughout most of the show. Overall I love it, It's very far from perfect but it does more than enough right to be a great sitcom. It does defiantly feel like a product of its time and that's fine honestly. Also, I love how it becomes a psychological Horror/Drama movie from the 90's when you remove Ross' thoughts from his close up shots lmao. 7/10 go watch it.

    Adeus série da minha vida. Friends finaliza do melhor jeito possível.

    The last few seconds gave me immense feels. It's the end of a chapter in the lives of these characters and the end of the all time greatest sitcom.
