Here’s your New Year’s Resolution: Netflix has announced that, starting January 1st, 2015, all 10 seasons, 236 episodes and 83 hours of Friends will be available to stream. The news came shortly after HBO announced its own standalone streaming service launching in 2015.
Sure, HBO has dragons, and John Oliver, and all the movies you kind of wanted to see last fall but couldn’t be bothered to go to the theater for, and depressing original documentaries about how fucked up the world is. But are these shows really your Friends? Do they know you like Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, and Joey do? Will they be there for you when the rain starts to fall?
