    Where’s Lisa Kudrow in this picture ? No Friends reunion would be complete without Phoebe Buffay.

    I’m rather surprise that they didn’t do a come-back movie instead, like ‘Sex in the City’ did.

    It’s a shame a movie wasn’t done with this great cast. Their writers were hilarious making this show like no other. If it happens, it’ll be great to see them all together again. I’ve already read that Matthew Perry might not be able to be there and he might make a tape to air.

    Saw one episode when it was on. That was 22 minutes I wish I’d spent doing something else. Complete crap. Just like two and a half men. That kind of garbage is why people’s brains are turning to mush.

    One of my favor shows. Will always love Friends and can watch it over again.
