UK Netflix now has the rights to every episode of 'Friends' ever made. That means all 236 episodes, spanning 10 series, are available to stream now. Which should help you get over the January blues.

The show ended in 2004, though it's constantly re-shown on Comedy Central (which has been its UK home since 2011, when Channel 4 lost the rights). US Netflix has had the rights for the last three years, but it's only now that UK Netflix viewers can get in on some 90s New York nostalgia.

Netflix UK & Ireland posted on its Twitter account: "If you quit your job and watched eight hour of 'Friends' a day you'd complete it in two weeks. You know what to do."

'Friends' started all the way back in 1994 on US network NBC. Its 10-year run saw it coin a number of catchphrases (like 'How you doin'?', 'We were on a break' and 'He's her lobster') while becoming one of the most popular sitcoms of all time.

Its last episode was watched by 52.5 million viewers.
