Despite its success, there are many who believe that the fiction has not aged well due to some jokes or choices of casting that would have no place today. Lisa Kudrowwho was Phoebe, came out in defense of the production, which he described as a “progressive”.
In an interview with The Times the actress talked about the criticism by the “cast is completely white” of the series, ensuring that the fiction should be seen “as a time capsule and not as something that we did wrong.” Kudrow admits that he does not regret playing the role of Phoebe Buffay, but believed that the story would have more diversity if the decline today. “I don’t have a cast only white, that’s for sure,” he acknowledged.
“There was a guy whose wife discovered that she was a lesbian and was pregnant and raised the child together. Also, we had a surrogate mother. At that time, it was progressive,” explained the interpreter, referring to Ross.
David Schwimmer, who got into the skin of Ross, already talked about this matter in an interview for The Guardian in January. “This series was groundbreaking in its time by the way in which you handled so as casual sex, sex with protection, gay marriage and the relations”, he argued.
