5. Friends, May 6, 2004
Over 52 million watched as Rachel, Joey, Phoebe, Chandler, Monica, and Ross said good-bye on the last episode of Friends. As someone who was an avid watcher from the very beginning, I was happy that Ross and Rachel ended up together and that Chandler and Monica were greeted with not one but two beautiful babies. In the final minutes, I was hoping for a look into the future to see that they did truly stay friends. Instead, I watched as the group walked out of the apartment and one final shot of that picture frame on Monica’s apartment door. After 10 years of being a devoted fan, I felt cheated by this ending.
