• QUIZ: Which 'Friends' character are you?
• It turns out there was a massive plot hole in 'Friends' we all didn't notice

Featuring a superstar guest list and even a redo of the trivia game - you know, the one that led to Chandler and Joey taking over Monica and Rachel's apartment - this is a not-to-be-missed moment of television history.

And the Friends' party doesn’t stop there ... TVNZ 2 will carry the top 25 Friends episodes (as picked by Rolling Stone) from Saturday 28 May to Sunday 29 May.

Cate Slater, TVNZ’s Director of Content, says: "TVNZ 2 has been the home of Friends since the beginning. It's been part of our schedule for 25 years now and so it feels fitting that we can bring this amazing special to New Zealand fans on free-to-air and OnDemand."

Friends aired for 10 seasons from 1994 to 2004. The complete series of Friends is available to stream online at TVNZ OnDemand.
