The top ten best seasons from the television series Friends.

The Top Ten

1 Season 8

TOW Monica's Boots
TOT The Rumor
TOW The Red Sweater
TOW The Videotape
TOW Joey Dates Rachel
TOW Rachel Has A Baby

Plus, it was the season that won the Emmy for Best Comedy. - ilovekelly75

Best season, the show matured that season, joey and rachael's relationship added new depth to the show. Every single episode was funny and full of magic, also was the season that wan best comedy at the Emmys. Friends is and always be the best sitcom of all time, it is more original and relevant then Seinfeld, and the way it transcended T.V. Into popular culture and defined America in the mid 90's - 2000, broke the mold in what sitcoms were.

I didn't like the whole Rachel/Joey relationship because my all time favorite couple is Ross & Rachel and I thought that it was inappropriate of Joey to try and date Rachel when everyone knows Ross is her "lobster". However, this season had some of the funniest episodes such as TOW the stripper, TOW the rumor, TOW the baby shower etc and I really enjoyed it overall.

I loved this season because JOEY AND RACHEL! I don't care what you say, they will always be my favourite couple

2 Season 5

I did the ranking 5,4,6,2,3,9,10,8,1,7

The reason I put S7 last is because the beginning of that season is weird, Chandler looks and acts strange and completely different to the last episode of the previous season (probably the drugs) the jokes aren't as funny I.e Joey thinking a Vicar is a goalie etc...there had just been in my opinion 5 brilliant seasons in a row from 2 to 6 where the programme was at it's peak (1995-2000) where there was just classic after classic, you could barely find an episode that wasn't non-stop entertainment in that period. Season 7 did get better as it went on and still featured some great episodes (as you'd expect from such a brilliant sitcom) like every season had at least some great episodes but the standard was so high from seasons 2-6 and the difference was there to see and in my opinion seasons 1&7 have the least amount of classic episodes. I think the 10 seasons go in 3 groups, 2-6 clearly the best, 8-10 middle and 1&7 were in my opinion the ...more

Best season hands down. I'm sorry but how is season 8 number one? There is one great episode in that season: TOW The Videotape. Other than that it's a pretty mediocre season. Season 5 on the other hand was just one amazing episode after another. With this season they were able to make Monica and Chandler hiding their relationship for 14 episodes and not only managed to keep it funny for half a season, but they were able to make the second half just as funny by ending it with Vegas

The start of the relationship between Monica and Chandler was one of the best things on the show. The way they tried to hide it, the way everyone found out about them at the end, everything about it was so smart and perfect. I love Ross and Rachel and they are my favorite couple but I'm glad the writers decided to make Monica and Chandler "a thing" because individually they are strong and interesting characters and as a couple they are even ten times better. The episodes in that season are all funny and ''classic''. Some of my favorites include TOW the sandwich, TOW everybody finds out and TOW the ball.

It goes 5, 3, 4, 8, 2, 6, 1, 10, 7, 9

3 Season 2

Best season hands down! It should be first instead of 8. Chandler was hilarious, every single episode was funny and I love when Ross and Rachel started going out. Plus, this season contains the best episode in the world "TOW the two parties"

I actually watched Season 2 even before Season 1 or any other season, and hands down, it's the funniest. The One with the Two Parties and The One with the Bullies - funniest episodes ever!

Season 2 was amazing because we already learnt some stuff about the characters from the first season and with the second season we learn even more about them and we can follow their storylines better.

Out of all the seasons this one puts the biggest smile on my face.

4 Season 4

The one with the Embryos alone makes this the best season ever. Great plot, great fun, great character developing. Only Emily sucked, but that's probably cause they wanted her to.

Awesome season! All the episodes are excellent, and as we look back at this great series this is probably the season when all the character have matured but at the same time young enough. Things like Joey - Chandler roommate awesomeness, development of Mondler when Chandler flirts with Monica and Ross Rachel development. To me season 4 slightly edges out the rest as the best F.R.I.E.N.D. S season of all time!

This is by far my favorite! All the characters are developed and we see them grow and not just one is focused on. The London episodes are great and no one can deny the OMG moment when Ross says Rachel!

Hands down, best season

Greatest plots & episodes ever!

5 Season 3

This is the best season ever! There are so many classic episodes, I think overall seasons 2,3 and 4 are the best, but season 3 takes the cake as the best, all the characters are at their best here!

Ross and Rachel together and when they are broken up you gotta love it. Don't forget the poking device

Season 3 is considered to be some of the finest work of the show. Shame this is number 6... - lomein

This season is the best!

6 Season 1

The first season was the best one because the characters were in the beggining and you had the opportunity to know them all for the first time. They seemed to be much more carefree and young back then.

I remember the first episode. That episode really cracked me up. The first ones are usually the better ones.

All the female characters start to get very annoying in the last few seasons. The earlier stuff is much better. - Krumeater

This was the best season ever...
There were no relationships among the... No ross and rachel or mondler (i loved those both I admit but still)
This is the only season where the six friends are struggling friends who find comfort from one and another and nothing more... Hence the first season will always be unique..

7 Season 7

I like all the friends series (except for series 6) but series 7 is definitely my favourite! when phoebe starts going 'hee' when ross plays bagpipes, that cracks me up everytime and monica and chandler get married! this has to be the best season ever!

Totally agree TheSudhanva : all seasons have to be seen and are fabulous. You cannot see one of them without seing the all package. But actualy I got that little crush on the 7th because each minute of each episode is just great.

The Ending Was So Shocking! Loved every episode and definitely the right amount of comedy

Always my fave

8 Season 6

The best season in my opinion! It was a season with no major plot points until the proposal at the end. You have the 6 friends just being friends. Ross and Rachel's drunken marriage, Joey's hernia, Phoebe's running (my favorite), Thanksgiving with Ross high and the trifle, Monica and Ross doing the routine, Ross doing Unagi, Joey's fridge breaking, Chandler cleaning the apartment, Ross's British accent at NYU... And finishing with the proposal! Easily the best season from start to finish.

Season Six has the funniest episodes. The episode where Chandler cleans the apartment after moving in and tells Monica she can't come in because "Ross is naked" is hilarious. Then there's the episode where Ross puts on a fake British accent when he teaches at NYU. That episode ends with Rachel discovering the two of them are still married which is one of the funniest moments of the show.

This season is so amazing from beginning to end. Ross and Rachel's drunken marriage, Joey's hernia, Phoebe's running, Thanksgiving with Ross high and the trifle, Reese Witherspoon, Ross doing Unagi, Joey's fridge breaking, Ross dating a student, Bruce Willis guest starring, and finally the proposal (one of the best season finale's ever) - it was a fantastic season.

9 Season 10

The end of a great season. By far, the greatest of the FRIENDS sitcom. It leaves the viewer with a grin yet a smile on their face. And even though the viewer knows the show is over, they are left with a feeling that it will never, really end

It was so funny, witty and sarcastic, but it was also heartwarming and awesome. I cry every time I watch the finale.

A heap of good episodes, TOW ross' tan is so funny, and the finale is pretty sad, to see your favourite TV finish. - dragon13304

Definitely it's a tie between Seasons 1 and 10 for me. 1 because it's the beggining, you get to meet all the characters and it's like a T.V. show for young people, they are all like 23/24 years old. 10 because they have grown to be six incredible people. It's been a hell for 10 years guys. And we still love it.
