September 22, 1994: The world changed.
Friends, widely regarded as the (or one of the greatest TV shows) in history premiered on NBC exactly 22 years ago.

Speaking of which, remember the first glimpse we all got of everyone’s favorite six friends?

I guess you could say the pilot and I had been on a break.
