It’s been almost 15 years since the Friends finale, but it’s one of those timeless sitcoms that’s still good for a rewatch every couple of months. Some of the memorable moments include the time Ross needed help moving a new couch into his apartment (PIVOT) or any of the Thanksgiving episodes. But since the beginning, they’ve done well in paying homage to most holidays, including Valentine’s Day. And there are some Friends Valentine’s Day episodes that prove the love struggle is as timeless as the show itself.
Your first instinct might be to embark on a Valentine’s Day movie marathon, but there’s something less intimidating about watching a marathon of the best Valentine’s Day episodes of Friends since you already know you’re going to love them.
I’ll admit that I’m not wild about the first couple of seasons of Friends, if only because of how obviously dated they are. But the characters were funny and had great chemistry from the start and the early Valentine’s Day episodes show that. They also prove that while the show might be old enough to rent a car now, the relationship troubles some of the characters faced early on are just as real today.
