Abstract

Television has an incredible way of bringing people together through TV shows and movies that allow us to separate ourselves from our real lives and spend a half hour to two hours invested in someone else's world, be it fictional or non-fictional content. However, by diving into what goes beyond the things that we see on the screen is what allows us to become truly knowledgeable about media theory, and a large part of understanding media theory revolves around how production teams work to create successful works that remain relevant and impactful for years. This paper presents a full case study of the hit TV series Friends, where aspects such as political, textual, and audience analyses are examined and further understood.
