What's more, new HBO Max subscribers are able to watch them all for free. The service offers a seven-day free trial of the service, giving fans plenty of time to watch all the Thanksgiving episodes. After that time, the service costs $14.99 a month, which gives viewers access to the entire HBO Max catalogue including originals like Raised By Wolves and Love Life.

For fans not knowing which Friends Thanksgiving episode to start with, the fan favorite is "The One With All the Thanksgivings." It is that episode that famously features Monica and Joey with turkeys on their heads, and each of the main Friends cast members sharing their most humiliating holidays.

Series co-creator said of this episode to Entertainment Weekly in 2016: "There was never a plan like, 'We're going to win Thanksgiving!' I think we all really loved the first one and then the second one and it just sort of grew and grew. One of the things that's really great about [a Thanksgiving episode] is it puts all six of them in the same room. Those tend to be our best episodes."

The Thanksgiving episodes also include "The One Where Ross Got High," once voted the fifth-best ever episode of the comedy by The Hollywood Reporter."The One With All the Thanksgivings" was 15th on this list, Season 4, Episode 8—"The One With Chandler in a Box" 17th, "The One With the Football" 19th and "The One With the Rumor" 23rd.

Friends is streaming now on HBO Max.
