You should say:

What it is called and what it is about
Who the main characters are
What made you laugh
And explain why you remember this TV program so well

Ok, I’m going to talk about “Friends”, obviously a very famous comedy series aired in the 90s, but it’s still very popular today.

There are six main characters in the sitcom: three girls (Rachel, Monica, Phoebe) and three boys (Ross, Joey and Chandler). The stories revolve around their work life and love life. Each of the characters has very distinct personality traits that make them unique, and I guess that’s one of the reasons why they’re funny.

For example, Rachel was born beautiful and rich, so apparently she’s got a lot going for herself, but she’s sometimes oblivious to problems of people who are less lucky. Monica, despite being very beautiful as an adult, struggled with obesity as a teenager, so you can imagine there’s always some competition going on between these two girls. Phoebe, on the other hand, seems like a weird but carefree person, so I guess she’s there to smooth things out for everyone. Anyway the director and producer managed to turn their rivalry and friendship into something that is quite intriguing to watch. 

And as the story develops, their dynamics evolve; they’ve even become lovers, breaking up and making up. It’s hard to elaborate how funny it is and maybe some of the jokes are no longer appropriate today, but all in all it’s still worth a watch.
