    A family member posted a gif about a Friends reunion on Facebook yesterday. I immediately dismissed it as a hoax, but then did some internet reading. I'm still not convinced, but it looks like there is real discussion.

    This show was a defining part of my generation.

    So if there were a reunion of some sort, what would you want to see?

    A TV movie so you can catch up with the characters?

    A Reunion Special with interviews and clips?

    I'm sort of cheesy. I like reunion movies to see what happened to the characters as they moved on/got older.

    Never liked Friends very much. But I would love to see a "what are they doing now" show of Mary Hartman (if they are still all alive.) Just bought a DVD of the series, and enjoying it all over again. A totally different kind of humor from Friends.

    Thx, but no Thx. They overstayed their welcome during the original run already, so, I'm not interested.

    What is a Friends reunion? Is that like a Quaker thing or something?

    Yes, and the first scene should be Monica's realization at what an idiot she was for giving up her rent stabilized, 2 bedroom + "terrace" Perry Street apartment. Though seriously most of the "Friends" are pushing 50, the age characters hit when most viewers stop caring.

    Weird trivia - you know that fountain they're all tumbling in in the opening credits?

    "Darrin Stevens" from "Bewitched" took a tumble in the same fountain in '64 when "Samantha" announced she was pregnant:



    All those townhouses in the background, that park and that fountain are part of the same back lot neighborhood that hosted houses not only from "Bewitched" and "Friends" but "I Dream of Jeannie," "Leave It To Beaver," "The Munsters," "Desperate Housewives," "The Partridge Family" and the movie "Pleasantville," to name but a few, with each location practically just a house away from each other:

    As a Friends fanatic I'd love to see a reunion. Not sure how good it would be though. I think the best way would be to do a short season ala arrested Development. I really don't think a movie would go over well at all.

    If the reunion has any moments like the one below, BRING IT ON!

    Of course they should. I heard they might do it this year because Jennifer Aniston was asked to pause on her movie career for this year for a Friends reunion.

    I believe they should do a 2 part reunion episode when they all reunite for Thanksgiving. It should be called "The one where they reunite".

    It was 20 years ago this show started and 10 years since it ended.

    More triv: Elizabeth Montgomery became pregnant twice during the filming of Bewitched, so the pregnancies were incorporated into the storyline. The only other option was to film her from the boobs up for 9 months.

    Friends seems so dated now with its ultra-pricey wardrobes, hundred-dollar haircuts, lily white group of besties, waitresses being able to afford $4000-a-month Village apartments, and characters flagging each other down at airports to declare their love before someone leaves for a high-powered job in Paris. I turned from the show when I realized that it was a Hollywood Lands End catalog idea of what a young person's life is like.

    The kids on Buffy dealt with the collapses of their families, the deaths of their parents, failed relationships, money woes, frightening sexual realizations, crippling disappointments, and noble self-sacrifices.

    I could see myself in Buffy.

    I can't see myself dancing around in a fucking fountain.

    Friends reunion? Bad idea. Too much time has passed for it to be of much relevance anymore. Maybe if they had done it a year after the series had ended, but now it would probably face the same fate as that X-Files movie released a couple years ago

    If they did it right, I think it could be a cool idea. Like maybe it aknowledged there are many years of gap and they kind of separated a bit in their lives, but some sort of situation brings them together for an extended period of time. Was one of my favorite shows!

    Saw him recently. Poor boy is not aging well at all.
