Friends was situation comedy television series created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman and heavily promoted by liberals and the media. It ran from 1994-2004 and featured six "friends" in their 20s living in New York City. Unlike most situation comedies, it relied on a live audience instead of canned laughter to "strengthen" the jokes.
The show deceptively promoted activities such as sex outside of marriage, and homosexuality, without disclosing the adverse effects such behavior, including increased disease, infertility, depression and domestic violence.
The show was made by Warner Brothers Studios.
A spin-off show about one of the characters (Joey), but ultimately failed.
