Since ’90s fashion is back, this month’s pick is all about Friends. While the show was one of the biggest TV hits of its time, the program continues to find new viewers and younger generations of fans through the accessibility of streaming and syndication.
I’ll Be There for You: The One about Friends by Kelsey Miller was released before the 2021 HBO cast reunion but is still chock-full of interesting and lesser-known background about the show, its origins, the cast and its evolving and ongoing reception and impact on culture.
As a journalist and pop culture expert, Miller thoughtfully covers some of the ways the show’s humor hasn’t aged well while also digging into ways the show was ahead of its time.
A fun, easy read for learners about and lovers of pop culture, TV, Friends or all of the above!
