1. Apparently RS has Friends fans?

I don't think I've ever seen an episode of it.

5. You haven't missed anything

It was really just a rip off of Seinfeld but with more characters

There are clips of Friends on YouTube without the laugh track and it's painful to watch.

2. AT&T takes some Time Warner shows off Netflix, makes them exclusive to HBO Max

https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2019/07/att-starts-restricting-time-warner-shows-to-its-own-streaming-service/

AT&T will start restricting some Time Warner shows to its own streaming service, despite previously telling the government that it would distribute Time Warner content as widely as possible.

WarnerMedia, the division AT&T created when it bought Time Warner, today announced a new online streaming service called "HBO Max." HBO Max will debut in the spring of 2020 and include exclusives that will no longer be available on other streaming platforms.

HBO Max will have exclusive streaming rights to all episodes of Friends, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and Pretty Little Liars. Friends and Pretty Little Liars are currently available on Netflix, so they'll both leave that service by the time HBO Max launches. Since the HBO Max exclusives pertain only to streaming rights, the shows could still be available on cable TV services.

HBO Max will also have exclusive streaming rights to upcoming Warner Bros. series such as Batwoman and Katy Keene. AT&T also said HBO Max will have "exclusive movie production deals with Greg Berlanti... and Reese Witherspoon," as well as HBO programming and various "Max Original" series that are in the works.

HBO Max will likely cost "slightly more" than the $14.99 per month currently charged for HBO Now, The Wall Street Journal wrote. HBO Now is primarily a vehicle to distribute HBO-produced shows as well as movies that HBO has streaming rights for. HBO Max will have a bigger library, roping in lots more Time Warner programming, with AT&T saying it will "premiere with 10,000 hours of premium content."

3. I am amazed that reruns of a 25 year old show are considered an attraction

I would have thought it was stuck in syndication, as a filler for cheap channels that can't work out what to buy that's less than a generation old. There's a secondary channel in the UK, E4, that use to be know as "you're never more than 2 hours away from an episode of Friends". Now it's "... away from an episode of The Big Bang Theory". Because no-one cares to watch something for the 6th time.

4. My daughter's generation thinks Friends is stupid

They weren't a part of it being shoved down everyone's throat.

They LOVE The Office though

6. I just watched the entire series

and I thought it was great. I remember watching some of the episodes back then but our kids were little and I had to get them in bed before ER.

7. Thankfully, I don't have HBO Max....

.... so there is zero chance I will land on it by mistake or by accident.

8. I watched it when it was on, and I liked it...a lot.

But I've seen it.

No need to watch it again.
