“The One Where Nana Dies Twice” (November 10, 1994)
Hey, have you heard about this show called Friends that’s about people who are friends? Emelie Burnette returns to talk about how the first gayish outing of this landmark sitcom gets some things right, some things wrong. We don’t settle the “Is Friends homophobic or transphobic?” debates but we do at least find an answer to the “Is Rachel Green Jewish?” debate?
