Kudrow without question.November 9, 2014 at 4:25 pm #338421
“Friends” is my all-time favorite television show, so this is hard for me since I love each of the character’s in their own unique way. I guess I would pick Kudrow. Impeccable comedic timing, able to make Phoebe weird but loveable, and also quite the dramatic actress when called upon. She was unpredictable and she inhabited Phoebe, and I think she was the best overall.
I think Aniston got better and better as the show went on and there was a more stable idea of who Rachel was becoming, and she’s fully deserving of her Emmy for the eighth season. She’s downright incredible in her birth episode. Cox was so underrated (as noticed by her being the only one to never get an Emmy nom for the show), but she nailed very specific parts to her character like the cleaning neurosis and competitiveness. As a whole, the ladies were better than the guys.
That’s not to discredit LeBlanc, Perry, and Schwimmer. Of those three, Schwimmer is best. The guys were all great, but I guess you weren’t expecting me to say anything to the contrary of that about my favorite TV show.November 9, 2014 at 6:01 pm #338422
I never got why Kudrow was so revered for the show. I guess Phoebe’s just a flashier role ?
For me it was between Cox and Aniston. I went with Cox because I think she made Monica work even when she was written as an insuferable shrill person, and she’s probably the cast member responsible for the most laughs for me (well, also Matthew Perry but he’s too one-note to be a consideration here I think).November 9, 2014 at 6:18 pm #338423
Definetely Perry.November 9, 2014 at 7:55 pm #338424
Tough call between Cox, Kudrow, and Perry, but went with Cox.November 9, 2014 at 8:32 pm #338425
I absolutely love this cast and I think the ladies were definitely better.. I voted for Lisa Kudrow because she was amazing but Aniston and Cox were equally incredible and a close second and third. The guys were good too but the ladies were better.November 9, 2014 at 11:21 pm #338426
Wow, I’m the sole vote for David Schwimmer.November 10, 2014 at 12:49 am #338427
Wow, I’m the sole vote for Matt LeBlanc.November 10, 2014 at 1:01 am #338428
Wow, I’m only the 6th person to pick Courteney Cox.November 10, 2014 at 2:05 am #338429
I’m surprised by the amount of votes Cox is getting. I always thought she was the weakest link of the cast.
I voted for Perry but could have easily voted for Kudrow too. They are in a league of their own imho.

This is the most difficult thus far because each castmember had their on and off seasons. People tend the remember the best of their favorites. If that were the case then my vote would easily go to Perry or Kudrow. But the writing for Chandler began lacking in season six, and his character never recovered. Phoebe also loss a lot of her charm in later seasons, though Kudrow always showed up performance wise. Cox seems to get a lot of support because she never gotten much love from awards voters and critics. I liked Monica quite a bit in the series’ first half, but she became a one dimensional shrew in the second half. Leblanc I’ve felt was always underrated, and despite his character being reduced to a simple baffoon he brough the funny, but he just didn’t get enough substantial material in the early seasons. The only castmember that can easily dismissed is Schwimmer. Ross was somewhat adorable in the first few seasons (though he was outshined by Perry in them), but he became more and more insufferable every year. Ultimately, I’ll go with Aniston, which seemes like a lame choice but oh well. She’s a good comedienne (despite overdoing it sometimes), and Rachel received the best, most consistent storylines throughout the series.
