The One With FRIENDS Reunion

Believe it or not, I only started watching FRIENDS (the sitcom) when I first came to London, 2 years after the last episode has been broadcasted and 12 years from it's first!

But since then, I have to admit that I have watched it so many times, over and over again until I can recall what that episode is all about just by watching the first minute of that episode :) This is of course thanks to E4 in the UK had it played from 8pm everynight before they stop renewing their license :)

And it all makes sense to me why some of my friends in college behave certain ways and how they said certain words then, like the popular word "eeeewwwwwww...." or relation status = "complicated"...

I am a big fan of this show now and obviously when I first heard of a Friends Reunion (movie or season doesn't matter), I am as excited as Ross when he first met Rachel in the first episode...

Watching back all these episodes and occasionally saw some news on its star, I have to say some of them doesn't age as gracefully as others (aheeeemmm....Le Blanc). They might still have the charm and character to bring back the memories, I think they might have to do it really differently in order not to spoil the franchise.

Will the "Reunion" ever possible? Everything is possible!!!

Will it be a movie or an entire season? I guess the logical choice would be a movie. But judging from the response of the like of SITC, they might want to consider doing a whole season instead, or maybe both!

When will it be? My hunch... IF it ever happen, 2014 might be a "logical" year from the Marketing point of view. Imagine the tagline... "10 years from it's last episode..." ;) And if it doesn't happen in 2014, I strongly believe it will never going to happen.

Will there be like a new generation of FRIENDS? You mean like 90210? Why not! Everything is possible. But if I have any say in this, don't make the same mistake like 90210 did... It lost it's heritage!!! If they want to make a new generation of FRIENDS, why not make it base on the "actual next generation" of the original FRIENDS. Ross has Ben. Rachel has Emma. Phoebe has the triplets. And the Bings have the twins! They can easily be the next gen of the FRIENDS!

Alright... enough said. If Warners are reading this (as if they would), let's bring back FRIENDS in 2014!!!

(fingers' crossed).
