Friends premiered in 1994 and went on to become one of the most popular sitcoms of all time. Iconic hairstyles, inescapable catchphrases, and an abiding love of vests are just a few of the show’s contributions to pop culture. But it wasn’t all lattes and laughs as we take a look back at the show through the lens of 2021.

Tonight, come together with your fellow Friends fanatics to dish on what has held up since the show’s debut and what decidedly has not. LAist’s Mike Roe and guests Guy Branum, Erin Mallory Long and Katie Willert want to hear your hot takes on all things Friends.

Watch the pilot before the event, then grab a spot on our virtual couch Thursday night at 6:30!
