Lately I've seen snippets of rumours circulating that Lisa Kudrow and Matt LeBlanc might be working again on the same show. Just now I've read an article that confirms this and all cast back for a Friends comeback season.

QUOTE
Good news for all you “Friends” fans out there… NBC just confirmed it is indeed happening according to Star Media. Not only are they having a reunion but they are reportedly having a full comeback season.

The new season of “Friends” is set to launch in 2014 yet it is still unknown whether all of the original actors will be returning to reprise the roles that made them all famous.

How great would it be to see Rachel, Monica, Joey, Phoebe, Chandler and Ross all back together again? We hope it happens.


http://elitedaily.co...omeback-season/

I grew up with Friends and do have a soft spot for it. I was 9 in 1994 when it first originally aired.

Ross is probably my favourite and there has been some classic jokes that came out of Friends that find themselves in popular culture, just like a classic Simpsons joke that nearly everyone knows.

@Melchior: Maybe that's where the rumour started. Or maybe it was a case of Chinese whispers. Interwebz style.

I actually quite liked this show. Just like you Floyd, I was also 9 when Friends first debuted back in '94, so I grew up with it too. Sure, it has quite a feminine vibe to it, but unlike most so called sitcoms - see above - Friends was actually funny. Chandler and Joey were my favourites. Loved those guys!

Cool, well sorry for the nonsense topic. Wouldn't be my first foray in to bollox topics. This can be closed, please.

Thanks

Episodes is the show I'm thinking of. It's rumored that at some point in the series the cast will get back together and make a (fictional) reunion special or something.

not by a longshot. not even close.

it's cheesy. cheap. canned laughter. bad jokes. average characters.
Friends is just the definition of bland.

it's white-boy comedy made for classic white-boys.

When you compare it like that, they're all better.
But only like 3 of those things are actual comedy shows.

You are the only person who has ever said anything negative about it, clearly you have no taste in TV that are funny, by the way, have you even seen friends

no I'm not.

at least 3 people in this thread have already agreed with me.
and if you wanna' search for critic and user reviews of Friends (just Google it) you'll find plenty of more people who say basically the same thing.

sure there's lots of people who love it. no doubt.
but I'm not the only one who doesn't....

To be honest the nauseatingly twee feel that the first two seasons had was the height of pretension; total sh*te. The latter seasons though became genuinely funny when it was just a non-depressing Seinfeld.

If you are implying that Arrested Development is not a comedy, or not funny enough to be a comedy, then you've lost all credibility in your opinions about anything ever, past present or future.

I don't care for the rest of your opinion but if you think for 1 second that Friends wasn't filmed in front of a live audience then you don't know the difference.

The spontaneous reactions from the audience in a tense or uber-romantic scene, or when a joke becomes clearly improvised by the cast and the hyper-intense laughter coming from the audience, actually causes the actors to nearly lose their composure for a split second...Or the unnaturally long pauses they have to take occasionally when a joke makes the audience laugh for a long time..Or when you have a few stragglers who are still chuckling away after everyone else has finished laughing.

Those moments don't happen with shows that have canned laughter. The 'emotion' from the 'audience' is never so genuinely felt, and everyone mysteriously starts and stops laughing at the same time.

meh.

doesn't change my opinion.
canned laughter (as a phrase) also refers to sitcom timing. the delivery of the punchline is set up for the actors and for the audience. they (the actors) just have to hit their cue and the audience understands when the joke has been made and when it's ok to laugh.

it doesn't change the fact that I found Friends (as a comedy) to be extremely bland and boring.
