This sitcom is probably amongst one of the most popular American sitcoms, also the first to introduce the idea of an ensemble cast. The plot follows a group of friends who live and work in New York City and spend time at the ‘Central Perk’ catching up. The characters are all confused about what they want from life and they confide in each other in a manner that is very similar to the four friends in SATC. Also, Rachel from Friends would probably get along famously with Carrie and her friends, and they would probably appreciate each others’ taste in clothes. You’ve probably already watched this show so I do not really need to urge you to see it, but if you have not, do rush into it, you will love it.
