On this occasion, Allociné offers you a selection of 5 series to discover on the platform to satisfy your desire for Friends.
Feel like crying ? Discover A Million Little Things
A clever mix between This Is Us and Friends, A million little things follows a group of friends whose daily life will be turned upside down following the suicide of one of their own. A shock that will help them restore order in their respective lives and consolidate their friendship.
Drawing on a solid cast, made up of faces known to series fans (David Giuntoli of Grimm, James Roday of Investigator Despite himself, Romany Malco of Weeds to name a few), this drama series manages to make us laugh as well. than cry.
Created by DJ Nash, A million little things deals with serious topics like depression, grief and illness, but manages to use an often light and positive tone. If you liked the chemistry and sincerity of the actors in Friends, you are going to love this series.
Feel like laughing ? Discover Parks and Recreation
Since the end of Friends in 2004, haven’t you really found a series that manages to make you laugh? Parks and Recreation is for you! Like The Office (also available on Salto) or Modern Family, the sitcom takes the form of a mockumentary and follows Leslie Knope (played by Amy Poehler), deputy director of the parks and recreation department of the small fictional town of Pawnee, Indiana.
Parks and Rec (for close friends) offers us, despite its humorous tone, a real satire of American political life. If the first season struggled to convince the public, the series managed to raise the bar from season 2, giving it cult series status in less than 7 seasons.
It thus allowed Chris Pratt, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman and Aubrey Plaza to become known to the general public.
Want to find David Schwimmer? Discover Intelligence
If David Schwimmer had accepted to make Friends reluctantly after a bad experience in a TV series, we have to believe that he has since changed his mind. After playing Robert Kardashian in season 1 of American Crime Story, he’s now starring in Intelligence, a quirky British sitcom.
He plays Jerry Bernstein, an arrogant American agent of the NSA who takes the head of a new team made up of Joseph Harries (Nick Mohammed), an incompetent and tactless analyst. The unlikely duo will be tasked with fighting cybercrime. But not everything is going to go as planned. The sitcom is currently composed of 2 seasons.
Do you want to go back to the 90s? Discover Buffy
Do you miss the 90s? Go back to the decade that saw the birth of Friends thanks to Buffy the vampire slayer.
Launched in 1997, this cult series also follows a group of friends who meet, not to drink coffee at Central Perk, but to fight vampires and other demons at Sunnydale Cemetery. Two rooms, two atmospheres …
More seriously, Buffy the vampire slayer has, like Friends, marked an entire generation, and continues to be talked about today. This is the perfect opportunity to discover it.
Want to find a new group of friends? Discover The Big Bang Theory
After Friends, there was The Big Bang Theory. Like its predecessor, this sitcom follows a group of four friends who will see their lives turned upside down by the arrival of Penny, their charming new neighbor who will become their “life teacher”.
During 12 seasons, we follow the evolution of these geeks who know nothing about human relations. Often compared to Friends, The Big Bang Theory has nevertheless managed to create its own universe and build a strong fan base thanks to its influences much closer to pop culture. In short, if you want a new group of friends, this sitcom is for you.
