I originally didn't start watching it when it came out because I couldn't forgive the creators for giving it such an uncreative name.
I caught a few episodes over the years and it had its funny parts, but I still felt like the cast was pretending to fill the shoes of people more popular than they are.
I watched the finale tonight though, and I've gotta say, as far as series finales go, it's a masterpiece that puts Seinfeld to shame.
The first hour was a "10 years of Friends" clip show that I might've found annoying if I was a regular viewer, but having only seen a handful of partial episodes, it came in handy for at least reminding me what everyone's name was. Then the 2nd hour was a normal-format episode that was a perfect mix of sappiness, twists and the same humor I'm sure they had for the past 10 years.
A touching ending to a show that never touched me. :)
