First step, I moved all my Friends episodes into a Google Drive folder and waited for them to finish uploading. This took about 2 days for me; your results may vary depending on what despotic ISP shackles your home. But at least the process required absolutely no intervention after that initial drag-and-drop. Though there is one caveat: once you upload your videos, they have to be processed before they can be streamed.
Next you download the Google Drive app, log in, and navigate to your folder. All the thumbnails show up right away, and they're not skewed as with the Apple Videos app:
