It must be at least five years since the series concluded, and I still watch the re-runs. I have watched it so many times, I actually know the lines, it is kind of sad. I have often wondered why I watch it almost everyday! Am I able to relate to these characters at some level? Is it that the show is realistic at some juvenile, ridiculous level? Or perhaps no other show has quite come up to replace Friends. Whatever it may be, I still watch the show and probably will for some time to come. I hope I learn the real names of the characters and not continue to refer to them as Monica, Chandler, Ross, Rachel, Joey and Phoebe!

Maybe because almost every episode makes you feel good? It reinforces a belief in friendship and tolerance and the general goodness of people?

Compare that with something like ER - which seems to focus on all the miseries of life!

Very true! Friendship is a lot to do with tolerance (within limits). I like the fact that these guys do have their disagreements, but stuck together despite everything. Thanks for pointing that out SS.
