For a man in China, the show “Friends” never ended. The man — who goes by the name Gunther and has a son named Joey — decided to live his life Friends-style. After he went through a bad breakup, a friend recommended Friends as a way to cheer him up. And, in Gunther’s words, “It’s changed my life.”. He quit his job to open his own coffee shop (called Central Perk), replicating the Friends cafe down to custom-made couches. The Central Perk in Beijing is where Gunther and his fellow “Friends” lovers can watch and talk about the show.
