Ross is the funniest Friend
This opinion even shocks me, as an ardent Ross hater for eons. But in rewatched, Ross always has the best comedic moments:
It took a few seasons for him to break out of his Eeyore-ness, but once he embraced his chaotic self, he became 10x better as a character.
It’s funny, because I remember hearing he was considered the breakout after season 1 (and they all negotiated salary off of him), but I don’t consider him a star until a few seasons in.
