Actress Kathleen Turner has fuelled rumours of a Friends reunion after telling reporters she has been asked to appear in the sit-com.

I've heard loads of stuff here in the UK that it's coming back. Is this true? And would you want to see it return now?

I certainly hope not. And if it does, I hope it suffers the same fate as Joey.

For the love of all that is good and holy NO. They already did more seasosn than they should have. Not to mention us seing 3 weeks of commericals on NBC before the finale hailing the biggest event in TV history.  Yeah sure

That said none of the 6 main actors have had any real success outside of friends.

No.
The entire Friends scripts, original recordings and anything related should be locked in a steel box, and dropped into an ocean, where it will never be seen again.

So far no-one has been in favour. There are 4 one hour specials rumoured to be in the pipeline. Personally I lost interest after the first series.

I learnt written Portuguese and spoken English watching subtitled episodes of it, so I'm a bit partial to the series. But don't ask me what episodes I watched or what season it was, all I have now is a few episodes as videos! I agree that it's had its time, all good things must end.

Friends, I am afraid, has shared the same fate as Concorde. It was a hit, but then had to be grounded never to return (as much as I would like to see it.) Personally, I would much rather see the DVD collections than a Friends "reunion".



Je pense, donc je vole Concorde!

I hope it comes back. I liked watching that show, and even though it isn't cool to like it, most of you folks who said no watched it.

Buck the trend, it was funny!

yes , it was funny , for several years , but as so often happens they milked it long after it had ceased to be funny or original ... wouldn't you rather appreciate the classic re-runs than watch some new episodes where there is no chemistry because neither the cast nor the writers can be bothered any more >

You are right. I have series 1-10 in my DVD collection and can watch any episode whenever I like to. Trying to rekindle a sitcom that has successfully ended, is beyond senseless - as much as I love "Friends".

I liked it up till the very end. It did have some lame episodes, and some of the characters became annoying. Over all it was a good show. I would love to see how the whole Rachel and Ross thing worked out, the Chandler and Monica stuff, kids and all.

Joey, what ever became of him? I never watched his new show, it was on while I was working and didn't care enough to record it.

With NBC in last place among the big 3 networks, I dont think that anything is off the table.

I think it would be a disaster. Jerry Seinfeld said it best when Seinfeld quit running, "you have to leave them wanting more, thats when you know you've quit at the right time".

Don't mess with something that can't get any better.


25 Fumanchewd : No thank you, Martin has already been cancelled. Lay off the Eldrige Cleaver books. I hated this show. A bunch of gregarious idiots telling lame joke
26 Cedarjet : I have to say that Friends is one of the best TV shows ever. It will be watched (by whom, I cannot say) in a hundred years or more. I got into Friends
27 Halls120 : Couldn't have said it better. It was a good show in its time, but to come back would be ridiculous.
28 Zootrix : Positively not! A stupid programme, with stupid humour for a stupid audience. Just someone incinerate the tapes please! Thanks.
29 WhiteHatter : Dear God no... Friends was the epitome of bland network crap, as funny as colonic irrigation. The only show which is deservedly being resurrected is F
30 PIA777 : half of them did not have Jobs and they all lived in nice apartments and wore nice cloths. I think Only Ross and Chandler had real Jobs. PIA777
