1Television gives us new information and entertains us. Every day a lot of things happen around the world and thanks to TV many people may know what’s going on now in some certain place. People of different age and nationality are plunged into hundreds of programs which run every day on the tens of TV-channels. There are a lot of talk-shows, sitcoms, news, horror films, comedies, soap-operas (especially Brazilian which our dear grannies love so much), and so on.

2TV is harmful for people’s eyesight and also if you do nothing except watching shows for 24 hours even not stopping when there is a commercial you are going to have a great headache as a result. But also people substitute their friend for TV-programs. TV distracts people from their life and their problems. In my subjective estimation modern television is a very important invention of the mankind but people who like it very much should balance well their own life and TV-programs if they don’t want to go crazy.

3Mass media include the press, radio, television and Internet and keep people informed on the topical issues of the day. The mass media do much to excite an interest in every aspect of life and play an important role in reflecting the life of society. The mass media draw the public attention to the most serious political, economic, social and ecological problems.

4The sad truth is that programming for children grew up within the television industry almost accidentally, without any thought to their welfare. And so today we have put control over our children’s minds into the hands of broadcasters, toy and food manufacturers, and other commercial interests whose dominant concern is what’s good for profits and sales.

5Britain’s most common pastime is home based or social. Watching television and videos and listening to the radio are by far the most popular pastime, with an average of 20 hours a week devoted to these. Britain’s regular weekly dramas or soap operas such as “East Enders” or “Coronation Street” have more views than any other programme.

“Friends” is an American sitcom created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, which aired on NBC from September 22, 1994 to May 6, 2004. It includes 10 seasons, 236 episodes, each lasting for 20-22 minutes. The series is devoted to the life of a group of friends. It's about love, relationships, careers, at a time in your life when everything's possible. And it's about friendship because when you're single and in the city, your friends are your family.

Jennifer Aniston portrays Rachel Green, a spoilt “father’s daughter”, a fashion enthusiast and Monica Geller's best friend.

Courteney Cox portrays Monica Geller, the mother hen of the group and a chef.

Lisa Kudrow portrays Phoebe Buffay, an eccentric masseuse and musician. Phoebe is known for her self-written guitar songs (commonly viewed as awful because she is tone-deaf). By the way, she is the performer of the opening theme "I'll Be There for You" written by The Rembrandts.

Matt LeBlanc portrays Joey Tribbiani, a struggling actor and food lover. Joey is a womanizer with many short-term girlfriends.

Matthew Perry portrays Chandler Bing, a clerk working for a large corporation. Chandler is known for his sarcastic sense of humor and bad womanizing.

David Schwimmer portrays Ross Geller, Monica Geller's older brother, a divorced paleontologist.

The series was produced by Bright/Kauffman/Crane Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television. The episode title format—"The One..."—was created when the producers realized that the episode titles would not be featured in the opening credits, and therefore would be unknown to most of the audience. They believed that sitcom audiences generally refer to specific episodes of a show by the most memorable event of the episode, and decided to name their episodes in that format.

Friends received positive reviews throughout most of its run, becoming one of the most popular sitcoms of all time. The series won many awards and was nominated for 63 Primetime Emmy Awards. The series made a large cultural impact, which continues today.

In the U.S., 52.5 million viewers watched the finale on May 6, 2004, making it the most-watched entertainment telecast since the Seinfeld finale in 1998. Following the finales of Friends media critics speculated about the fate of the sitcom genre though producers said, “We all end up with a sense of a new beginning and the audience has a sense that it's a new chapter in the lives of all these characters.”
