It’s one of those shows that I don’t think will ever die down. Objectively, it’s just a more accessible version of Seinfeld but with better looking people, but that didn’t stop it from becoming one of the biggest comedies of all time, leading to shows trying to emulate the success for years following.
Friends ended perfectly and poignantly, with all of the characters that many people grew up with going their separate ways and leaving the famous purple apartment.
There was a very bad spinoff that followed, Joey, but everyone likes to pretend that didn’t happen.
Anyway, 14 years later, everyone’s desperate to know what the Friends are up to now. Ross and Rachel would still be together, with their daughter now in her teens and Ben being, well, Cole or Dylan Sprouse.
Monica and Chandler’s kids would also be teenagers, Phoebe and Mike could have kids and who knows? Maybe Joey’s an Oscar-winning actor now?
Well, Jennifer Aniston recently appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden, and spoke about the possibility of their being a reunion. Annoying, a few of the cast members aren’t as into it as she is.
“Listen, the girls always say we would love to do it again, and the boys are a little less excited about it for some reason, I don’t know…“
I’m not sure about Matthew Perry, but Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer are doing pretty well for themselves, so that probably has something to do with it.
Continuing, Aniston said:
“And so, we’ve decided that we’ll just do … a remake of The Golden Girls in 40 years…“
That could work!
