"First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt said: "Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart." The sentiment sums up how we feel about our treasured friends—the real ones and the fictional ones we've fallen in love with on TV. Who wouldn't want to hang out at Central Perk and grab a cup of coffee with your buddies from "Friends"? And of course, you're always in for an eventful night of fun with the ladies of "Sex and the City."
To celebrate the joys of friend circles, Stacker thought it would be fun to do a slideshow on memorable TV friend groups. So we perused the most popular television shows and assembled a list of 25, with each series presented in chronological order based on the premiere date."
